Wait a min, sorry for being a bit ignorant but... I can still do homebrews even though I have the latest firmware on my ps3?

I thought that was gone when we lost the "install other os" option. I guess I have a lot to catch up on.

To quote: ControlConsoleAPI 2.60 Rev2 (CCAPI) (4.66) / ControlConsoleAPI 2.60 Rev3 (CCAPI) (4.70)

Hello everyone, CCAPI is a software that establishes a connection between your ps3 and your computer. You can control your ps3 from your pc. Some CCAPI functions:

  • Debug non-fself & fself in real time
  • Real time memory edit on CEX/DEX
  • Wire(less) connection
  • Module loading
  • Modify idps and psid
  • Edit console Leds
  • Ring console buzzer
  • Get PS3 temperature
  • ...

Compatible Firmwares:

CFW 4.21, 4.30, 4.40, 4.41, 4.46, 4.50, 4.53, 4.55, 4.60, 4.65, 4.70 CEX + 4.66 CEX Cobra / Non-Cobra

Build your CCAPI software

If you want to make your own program in C#, you must use iMCSx's PS3Lib, you can read his tutorial here:

VSH module loading:

Create a directory in your /dev_usb000/ called plugins and put all your sprx plugins into, it should be:


All of the sprx that are present in this folder, will be loaded at PS3 boot.

Important: If some games refuse to work, just don't use plugins (delete plugins folder from /dev_usb000)

How to install CCAPI?

Just download and run the ccapi pkg on your PS3. It will tell you to reboot, and it's done. You only need to do this once.

How to uninstall CCAPI?

Just run again the pkg.

Console Manager:

Add consoles (name/ip) usable in all ccapi tools

How to convert a 1.00/2.00/2.50 tool -> 2.60 tool

1) Put the PS3Lib.dll v4.4 in the same folder than the software (you can find it in CcApi_package_2.60/PC/PS3Lib/
2) Use the installer to install CCAPI 2.60 on your PC
3) Install the CCAPI 2.60 pkg on your PS3

From Rancid-o: Seems CCAPI 2.60 don't use anymore new_core (indeed it not overwrite our new_core) but it writes and loads an plugin called sys_plugin.sprx (stored in /dev_flash/sys/internal) and this broken the system manager (sm.self). But i do not understand what loads the file sys_plugin.sprx Oo (someone knows?)

Finally, from haxxxen: I can tell you: sys_audio.sprx is ccapi sprx instead of original file and it calls original sys_plugin.sprx (sys_audio.sprx renamed). i guess he has chosen this, cause it is default loaded everytime and it is well disguised

btw, I have found now a cool way to search and patch lv1 dynamically in code. It can be used for other files as well, as long as there are static patterns. I will try now to make a real rsod fix pkg for all cfws and future ones.
