July 8, 2011 // 7:27 pm - As a follow-up to the initial news on JFW DH PS3 CFW, today DemonHades has shared a video alongside some details via Bhaal of their upcoming JFW DH PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware in action.

To quote, roughly translated: Here is how we are editing categories and relocating to give it more content and content management deployments. It really is not no big deal, but that you may know the new categories that would incorporate this new Custom.

First before anything we want to clarify that this thread is dedicated to community members and therefore DHorg the comments made about what this information is or is no longer cause is nothing more than mere envy, oppression, or that are to dispute. For outside the dates of publication and that are linked to circumstances that can slow or speed up the publication.

  • Back of the 3 RAW Flash to external media (USB)
  • Flashing copies from an external drive (usb).
  • Update the Preloader
  • Home of the flash write access (not necessarily more alejandro or substitutes)
  • The advantages are not required reinstalling all the PUP (from hardware checks) do not need to do: composite or go through the recovery

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
  • JFW DH runs natively games until 3.56 (original disks) without having to upgrade.
  • PSN games that require npdrm 356, are also supported without upgrading (the current cfw not give this support)
  • No need for a valid signature on the executable
  • Not going to make a port to 3.55 of this JFW DH, since it includes much more than himself 3.55

Members of the Project

  • Alejandro (special collaboration) = Central Core, security, preloader

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.

If you installed Rogero 4.30 v2.03 then you have the "Install Package Files" in app_home/PS3_GAME.

If you have only v2.0 then upgrade first to v2.03 from XMB.

Following up on the previous revision, today PlayStation 3 developer deank has updated multiMAN to version 04.15.00 which now includes Remote Access functionality allowing you to link PS3 CEX and DEX consoles together alongside mmRAS (multiMAN Remote Access Service) by aldostools with details below.

Download: multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) (mM+ps3netsrv/GUI+mmRAS+installPKG - 3.21 MB) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD CEX (20121212) / multiMAN v04.15.00 UPD DEX (20121212) / PS3 Tools Collection 2.0.51 by aldostools

multiMAN 04.15.00 Changelog: This is only an UPDATE version (you need 04.14.00/04.15.00 BASE or FULL installed).

  • Updated PC application "ps3netsrv" to support fast folder-data retrieval
  • Greatly improved loading of remote /net_host folders (up to 4096 entries in mmOS and 2048 in other modes)
  • Greatly improved loading of remote Retro ROMs folders with covers
  • Added support to access remote PS3 system in mmOS or in game modes via /net_host
  • You can access all data of a remote PS3 to view/play photo/music/video files, transfer files/folders (and load ISO games/movies PS3/PSX/DVD/BD if used with Cobra CFW)
  • Added option in "Settings" - "Connect to Another PS3" - it allows full remote control (screen/pad) of another PS3 running multiMAN 04.15.00 and later
  • Added option in "Settings" - "Remote Access Permissions" (Disable/Files/Screen/Full) to restrict remote connnections to your PS3
  • Added support for mmRAS - PC application by Aldo (aldostools) which allows remote access to your PS3 (screen/pad) while running multiMAN
  • Screenshot feature in multiMAN (START+R2) will now save screens as JPEG.

The key features of this release:

  • The improved PC ps3netsrv application allows much faster access speeds when retrieving data from folders in mmOS or when browsing photo/music/video/ROMs from remote /net_host. You can now browse a remote folder with roms+covers and it takes a fraction of the time it took before.
  • The Remote Access feature allows you to connect to another PS3 anywhere in the world (be it in the other room or across the country) and copy files/folders, play Retro ROMs, view photos and play music and video files (after caching)
  • The Remote Access Control (PS3) feature allows you to connect to another PS3 running multiMAN and view its screen and control it with your pad. It allows you to minimize the current session and work with your own PS3 (to transfer files to the remote PS3 for example) and then return to the other PS3.
  • The Remote Access Control (PC) feature via aldostools mmRAS client allows you to connect to your PS3 (or any other PS3 around the world running multiMAN) from your PC. You can change the encoding quality of the picture, take screenshots in JPG (PrintScreen button) and control the PS3 with your keyboard and mouse. Click the [?] button for more information of the keyboard mappings.
  • The option in "Settings" (Remote Access Permissions) allows you to configure the access to your PS3. You can completely "Disable" it, you can allow remote connections only to access your "Files", you can restrict it only to remote control "Screen" or allow "Full" access for files and screen control.
  • The Remote Access Control provides 960x540 resolution (it doesn't depend on the remote PS3 resolution). The best results/quality and fastest response is achieved when server PS3 is running in 1920x1080.
  • To be able to use these features you have to configure your remote peers in "Settings" -> "Network Servers".
  • Any configured /net_host can be used for file access (PC and PS3) and for remote control (PS3)
  • If you are connecting to a PC you must have ps3netsrv application running on the PC side
  • If you wish to restrict access to your PS3 - change the setting in "Remote Access Permissions"
  • If you wish to connect to another PS3 configured as /net_host - use the "Connect to Another PS3" function in "Settings"

While connected to another PS3 you can 'minimize' the connection and work with your own PS3 and then resume the remote control. You will see the live minimized remote screen in the lower corner. To switch between local/remote control use [START]+[SQUARE].

To terminate a connection to a remote PS3 use [START]+[CIRCLE]. All other buttons you press will be sent to the remote PS3.

MANY thanks to aldostools for creating the PC application to connect to a remote-control-enabled PS3.

From aldostools comes a quick tutorial, as follows:

0- Run PARAM.SFO Edit.exe as Administrator to associate .SFO/.SFX extensions. Close it.
1- Backup your save data folder to a USB storage device (/PS3/SAVEDATA) or download them to the PC from /dev_hdd/home/0000000x/savedata via FTP
2- Backup your savedata folder in a ZIP/RAR/7z (just in case you make a mistak and corrupt your saves)
3- Start the Bruteforce and browse to your local savedata folder
4- Browse to a savedata with your account id and "Use PARAM.SFO as template" (you can do this manually copying the PARAM.SFO as "template.sfo" into the folder of Bruteforce)
5- Browse to a savedata with a foreign account id.
6- If the game has a key in the database it will be displayed, otherwise you will need to bruteforce it double clicking on the game and providing the ELF of the game (EBOOT or another self)
7- Once you have the key for the savedata to be resigned, press "Update Account ID" to update the PARAM.SFO with the account id in the template.
8- Press "Patch SFO" if the game is copy protected (it says YES in the Protected column)
9- Select all the files from the PFD using Ctrl+A and press "Decrypt PFD"
10- Use "Update PFD (Partial)" or "Update PFD (Partial update without Game setting) to update the hashes in the PFD. If you have the disc_hash_key for the game, you can use "Updae PFD (Full)".
11- Once the PFD is updated, select all files usingCtrl+A and press "Encrypt PFD"
12- Press "Verify PFD" to check if everything is OK.
13- Copy the resigned savedata to a USB storage device (/PS3/SAVEDATA) or transfer them from the PC to /dev_hdd/home/0000000x/savedata via FTP

Finally, from M@tsumot0: nice job master, i waiting for update STEALH version.

Put report_data.txt to your root usb go to install package file (Rogero 4.30 v2.03) on "APP_HOME/PS3_GAME" and push start for update your multiman 04.14.XX STEALTH to 04.15.00 STEALTH.

I'm sorry but if the games folder is empty It's because It's content have been deleted and I doubt It can be recovered. I've already deleted MultiMan before and It didn't delete my games folder, so I'm not sure of what you did wrong...

I previously had mm 4.09 installed with 4.30. I updated to 4.30 v2.03 and installed mm 4.14.00 and updated to stealth. I deleted my old mm.

My problem is I don't see my internal games anywhere. When I click on the folder they use to be in (hdd0:/GAMES) it's empty.

How can I access the games I have ripped on my ps3 internal hdd?
