October 2, 2011 // 6:42 pm - Following up on the earlier releases, today PlayStation 3 developer an0nymous has updated PS3Load which allows users to run PS3 SELF programs via wireless or wired network with some make_self bug fixes as outlined below.

Download: PS3Load GNPDRM PKG (580.47 KB)

To quote via PS3 Dev Wiki (

Older versions of ps3load would not work on 3.50/3.55 ("sysProcessExitSpawn2" won't work proper), and you had to use 3.41 instead. This is no longer an issue with the recent version ps3load which fixed the (make_self) issue for 3.55 standalone precompiled version to try: ps3load.gnpdrm.pkg (don't forget to delete your old version first)

Using ps3load:

1. make your app, produce at least an ELF
2. sprxlinker yourapp.elf (this should be done for you if you use any of the samples)
3. make_self yourapp.elf yourapp.self
4. load ps3load on the PS3
5. define the PS3LOAD environment variable in your favorite shell with tcp:ip_addr (where ip_addr is your the ip address of your PS3)
6. ps3load yourapp.self

IRC notes:

  • [eussNL] an0nymous solved the make_self
  • [eussNL] it was never a problem of ps3load, but from make_self
  • [eussNL] also, 3.50++ added memory protection (W^X)

being able to launch or copy over games from a NAS to the internal hdd would be sweet, but this is still good progress for the scene.

But why would I want to load a game manager from the network?

This means you can use PS3 programs through your network without installing it on the ps3. NO WII STUFF ON PS3... at least not yet, maybe in the future with some sort of emulator.

No - what it is - being able to load SELF files (Executable files in PS3 format) via a Networked PC without having to transfer it first to the PS3.

WiiLoad is the same thing for the Nintendo Wii - this just does the same but for PS3!
