Services Packs

  • These packs include the basics in order to use plugins, loaders, ftp, etc.

Compatibility with Games and Applications

  • JFW DH uses a 341v2 core, this does not mean not being able to play all over now without patching.
  • The JFW DH is compatible with games that include between 3.56 down, including the current patched to 3.55

TheGrid: TheGrid is a new category that includes a plugin manager, service packs, but also the name of the loader plugins. The plugins can launch tasks in the background.

Various details:

  • JFW The DH is based on the Firmware 3.41 v2 but is fully compatible with games requiring firmware 3.56 and earlier (3.55 patched games included).
  • Game discs that require firmware 3.56 or earlier without having to spend to update the console.
  • The PSN games that require a compatible NPDRM 3.56 without updating.
  • Executables do not need to be signed.

And the video of JFW DH: The video shows the personal side with a CFW Coldboot / Soundboot changed and a new category "RetroLaunch" Minis are supported and saves them (PS1/PS2 games and their backups will also be part of this category).

Those who wondered what the icon is black "JaiCraB", it must match the Firm USB Loader. DemonHades invites us to participate in their topic in order to advance the project as still no publication date.

The best advice we can offer is simply to hold off buying mod products used to assist in running backups and wait for free PS3 scene solutions to surface... they always do, sure they may be 6+ months after the profiteers cash in but as they say patience is a virtue.

What ps3news posted seems to makes sense. I also find it funny that cobra ODE is being developed right after this xk3y for 360 comes out... isn't that amazing? Perhaps they're made by the same people.

Scene should be free. if you need a dongle to load this onto its not all that much better than the original cobra. Also find it amusing that he says the TB dongle and the cobra dongle are very similar, but he didn't notice this until after he 'swallowed his pride' and bought a dongle. Why didn't you notice that when you were diving through the dumps?

I initially thought PS3News was just being paranoid, but something does stink.

Today deank updated to multiMAN v04.16.04 and aldostools also updated to PS3 Tools Collection v2.0.54, which now includes the mmRAS PS3-to-PC Server application that allows users to control a connected PC via multiMAN.

Download: multiMAN v04.16.04 Update CEX (20121218) (2.57 MB) / multiMAN v04.16.04 Update CEX (20121218) (Mirror) / multiMAN v04.16.04 Update CEX (20121218) (Mirror #2) / installPKG.pkg (486.47 KB) / PS3 Tools Collection 2.0.54

multiMAN 04.16.04 is available online now:

  • Improved speed when copying games/files from/to USB HDDs
  • Improved speed when copying games from PS3 Game Discs
  • Improved speed when copying/browsing folders via FTP (LIST/MLSD)
  • Added support for up to 99 pkg files in the [* Install Package Files] queue
  • [* Install Package Files] function will scan /dev_hdd0/PKGTMP and will MOVE the queued pkg files from this folder (saving HDD space by not copying to temp location)
  • mmOS will now honor the "Verify USB Games" setting when starting games from icons/shortcuts/game-folder
  • Scanning for active USB storage devices is now performed in the background and will speed up loading games on 4.xxCFW
  • Verifying games in now performed in the background (when possible) to avoid delays when loading games

The last one means that mM will scan your USB game folders in the background. It if manages to scan a game at least once you'll never be bothered with 'Verifying data...' again Along with the background scanning of usb devices it is now "Press [X] and game is loaded..."

I hope you like that... Let me know if you have any issues.

From aldostools: I just updated the mmRAS Server 01.01.02 with new features:

  • It now allows to configure a white list of allowed IP that can connect to your computer. (F6)
  • The server port can be configured from the popup menu on the system tray. (F2)
  • Minor optimizations in the code.
  • Added support up to 8 concurrent clients (clients can be multiMAN or mmRAS client for PC)

I also updated Bruteforce Save Data to version 1.3.3 with some suggestions from haru3173

I'm just hoping I can still use this dongle for something in the future instead of holding the door open with it. I'm wondering if I can flash it with Cobras firmware or can I flash it to use as a FSM dongle?

This OpenCobra payload sounds great, lets hope it can work with Rebug or other CFW firmwares.

Agreed, and sadly it's amazing how many people don't catch on to this recurring pattern through the years either

Max Louarn and Paul Owen have Gary Wayne Bowser (aka GaryOPA) plug a product on his Divineo / Xecuter funded domains, cash in on it for several months from unsuspecting PS3 scene users, then it fades to black after an alias (ie NoDRM, etc) mysteriously cracks it and releases patches and so on to make it work without needing to buy their 'disposable' product any longer... ironically just in time for their next endeavor to get underway, rinse and repeat all over (they forget to wash, dirty gits )

Its amazing they have been able to get away with this con job so long, but I guess when they buy up scene devs in the process (ie deank, who to this day denies it only fooling himself LOL ) it ensures they have a constant influx of users to keep their customer base stocked and ready to plug new 'disposable' products again to. Welcome to the PlayStation 3 scene!

who gives a crap about ode ? lol wtf.

this is not worthless... long as rogero or rebug can make a cfw with cobra built-in this will be pretty damn cool.

looking foward to it.
