December 17, 2010 // 6:37 pm - Since the arrival of Mount Alejandro, which allows writing to a new dev_flash, Waninkoko has released FreeFlash v1.0 and PS3mlib (PS3 multilib Library) for PS3 homebrew users.

Download: FreeFlash v1.0 / FreeFlash Source Code / PS3mlib Source Code / FreeFlash GIT / PS3mlib GIT

To quote from his site (linked above): FreeFlash is a PS3 application that creates a new and writable flash device FreeFlash. The original "dev_flash" device is kept to avoid issues.

We do NOT take any responsibilities for the wrong use of this application.

Requires payload with "peek" and "poke" syscalls. No version spoofing.

Finally, for those curious, PS3mlib is a high-level library designed to allow the creation of homebrew applications for the PS3, in a simple way. PS3mlib is developed to work with the SDK PSL1GHT.

Can anyone explain what the pokes to the kernel do? I compared my lv2 kernel with the changes applied by this app:

I compared my original level2 kernel with the patches posted above:

I don't have an asm/disasm to check the opcodes, but it will be much appreciated if anyone can find more info on this.

sooner or later a fully cfw, like happened to psp, will come out for ps3. I don't mind waiting a couple of years for that. the hack ps3 scene has just been born and it is growing really fast.

Yes, I think the description is slightly misleading, It may make people think they are not actually modifying thier real dev_flash. In reality this is very similar to the mount alejandro app, except with source.

unless you're a noob that always destroys stuff while navigating and copying/pasting files in a file-system. and let's face it, the noob to developer ratio is rather unproportional in favor of the noobs.

Actually, since this group released the source, we can use it to make installers for XML and eventually other firmware hacks, which is decidedly *not* pointless, since poking the flash by hand is pretty dangerous unless you know what you're doing.

That being said, the tool itself is redundant. If they'd released a static library to let us easily integrate the magic that would have been much more useful - something I'll probably do now that I have a reference implementation.

whoa, that would be great!
