• Earlier today, we reported here that hermres was planning to release a CFW for 3.41 consoles, he has just done this, here is a quote from the read me:

    WARNING! This modified firware is tested only by two persons (it is experimental!!!) with this models:

    CECHC04 (my model, 3 times with different changes)
    CECHG04 (from one friend)

    I cannot be sure if it can brick others models (don´t use this CFW if you have buy your console with 3.50+, you can brick it!)

    I am not responsible if this CFW brick you console: I have taken all possible precautions using SHA1 hash to avoid errors building
    the firmware, etc, and other problems (i include too my own patch utility to be sure you apply the patch correctly).

    Building the firmaware:

    Put original PS3UPDAT.PUP (3.41 v2) with patch.bat and run patch.bat. It must create CFW341_PS3UPDAT.PUP.

    Put CFW341_PS3UPDAT.PUP as PS3UPDAT.PUP in one pendrive (usb:/PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP) and try toupdate normally from the device.

    If it say “you have this version yet” try the restoration - recovery method (pressing POWER. Ask about this method if you don´t know in the forums)

    Features:

    - LV1 patch for undocumented v1_undocumented_function_114 (kudos for flukes1/graf_chokolo) 1 byte, don´t worry! XD

    - LV2 peek/poke patch (original from psgroove)

    - vsh.self patch to enable .self (same patch as psgroove-hermes_v4B. To launch self requires the payload working)

    - nas_plugin.sprx patch to enable packages (same patch as psgroove-hermes_v4B. You can install PSL1GHT original packages but requires
    geohot make_self_npdrm without one payload working)

    - category_game.xml modified to enable packages (kudos for KaKaRoTo)

    With this options PS3 works with Homebrew signed (use make_self_npdrm in the EBOOT.BIN).

    Working:

    Install payloadhv4.pkg and launch it to load the psgroove-hermes_v4B

    NOTE: payload code is experimental. I need to work in the application and the payload to add news features.
    don’t worry about the source code now: this is a beta test version yet, but the source code will soon available.

    Here also is a translated quote from hermes on EOL

    Well, do not take any more, I have to sleep it took more than 20 hours in active!

    CECHC04 (my model, 3 times with Different Changes, FAT 60GB)
    CECHG04 (FAT)
    CECHH04 (FAT 40GB)
    CECHL04 (FAT 80 gb)
    CECHH01 (NTSC 40GB FAT)
    CECHE01 (NTSC)
    CECH2001A (NTSC slim 120GB)
    CECH2004A (slim)
    CECH2504B (slim)
    CECH2404A (slim)
    CECH2004B (slim)

    I see that the link has been posted “tomorrow” will open a thread and it will take all this data update the readme.

    For those wondering, where you put the PS3UPDAT.PUP. bat of the package, run the bat and you create a CFW341_PS3UPDAT.PUP

    That gets into a pendrive as PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP and if you are in 3.41 so you will have to start the restoration console (which is done by pressing the power and using a USB cable for connecting the controller and such)

    Then, since the firm installed just install the pkg is included and run the application to load the payload

    I think that having a 100% success in all these models, we can say that the patch is safe: if a console peta, be anything else but work, work:)

    Tomorrow I will open a thread on the subject (when I rise XD), so please do not open your nothing you: comment here

      While your statement is correct, its good to see productivity on other firmwares, all these possible issues will be resolved sooner.

      Release something for the latest Firmwares,this will just remove the dongle which is already done before on 3.55
      THis will not let us run games without patch or let us update them.

      i know but then we can start to see a standardization in the scene rather then having like 6 different cfws which we do right now

      geos
      hermes
      wankinkoko
      wutangraza
      Rebug
      and my fav
      Kmeaw

      devs will then only have to worry about making their backup manager or homebrew app just to work on one cfw

      i think 3.55 cfw should be the point where things start to get standardized which will make it easier to upgrade to newer cfws etc and port over things

      so far i have tried geos wutangrazas rebug and kmeaw and i appreciate their work but what is the point of rehashing old stuff

      The reason most people still want 3.41 or 3.15(+other os) is because you can't fix a bricked council in 3.55 and is more of a protecting of your investment. fine for you if you want to take the chance and go to 3.55 for psn but who knows how long that is going to last and when it will go to something less stable for homebrew. so don't complain about people who want the option to downgrade. ps the downgrade from 3.55 is super sketchy especially for people like me with a 60gb cecha01 because every time I downgrade it leaves the hdd in tact so newer firms leave bits and pieces on the hdd and could cause complications such as blu-ray problems from 3.50. ***** about your own hardware not what other people do with theirs. and find out more about the situation.

      Was waiting for something like this. But now im gonna update to 3.55 since multiman can play avchds now. 3.55 is the holy grail right now way better than 3.41 ever was.

      Does anyone know if 3.41 kmeaw exists? i prolly wont use it sincce 3.55 has psn access but im just curious

      this does seem wise to start his cfw on a fw version that is well known.
      3.55 isnt the best place to start at all really.

      hermes has done this correctly, release on a stable base (3.41) then take his time to figure out all the changes in 3.55 and implement them into another release if he intends to do so.

      weve all seen how bad things happen when things are rushed and i for one am willing to wait and have a stable cfw and not brick.

      Hallo,

      I have a important question.


      1.) Do I have to start everytime "payloadhv4.pkg" before I start the bm ?
      2.) Can I use my old unsigned Homebrews like Open Manager 2.1l-2 ?
      3.) Can I use my Jailbreak too, if I have problems with Games ?


      I think at the moment this CFW is the best solution because nobody knows what coming up in the next months. I'm still on 3.41 with my PS3-break and Payload Hermes 4B I'm not a noob like the others who read: CFW 3.55 ohhhh I must update !...

      But this CFW with H4B Payload is really interesting and I really think to update. If there are guys like me, who think before update (no noobs) you can answer me. I have a PS3 Slim (CHECH 2504B) like Hermes 4B hahah what a bad joke.

      Okay guys answer me.

      the best solution is to have a stable CFW 3.55 to play games with the updates without disc (just to keep it safe). this is the only reason about that. not psn. soon or later will be a dream for a hacked console to go online. sony will do their job or banning or block. don't be stupid.

      Depends on the game.

      It's the same as running a dongle with Hermes v4b on it. Nothing else has changed apart from the fact that you don't need the dongle anymore.

      Is this the best option for anybody who is not wanting to upgrade to 3.55 yet? I backed up like 40 games on my hard drive to work on 3.41 with my current managers. I'm afraid I will have to back up everything again if I upgrade to 3.55.

      I probably will go to 3.55, but I will wait until the CFW are a little more stable and closer 100% of the games are working without problems (no freezes, or bricks)

      There are different forms of brick, what i had done was change on icon in an RCO, that killed the XMB, i couldnt use it at all, i could do nothing, it was bricked/semi-bricked, regardless, i couldnt use it, i used gliitch's method and it worked fine after.

      Your statement is pretty invalid. The newer firmwares have more features, and nearly the same access as 3.41. I got a launch console, and Kmeaws CFW works a hell of a lot better than anything i've had on 3.41. I have no problems with Blu-ray nor has my console ever bricked. We still have access to the debug as well...

      Essentially it's the same as how the PSP scene started, Everyone eventually moved over to Dark Alex's CFW because it was new and offered more then any other. The CFW scene shifts with whatever is most stable and has more features. It's inevitable. Everything is running 10x smoother on 3.55 then it ever was on 3.41. The fact that PSN is available, and the fact that all my games work flawlessly without patching, netflix, I can go on and on.

      There is a tutorial anywhere?
      It sounds like you're not using the payloadhv4.pkg patch that came with the FW. This needs to be loaded on every boot if you want to run backups.

      You people who are crying are the reasons why the scene is not so friendly anymore...I don't know what you 3.55 people don't understand about this thread being a 3.41 and not comparing to 3.55. This thread is to talk about Hermes payload on 3.41 if anybody having problem about it. If you are on 3.55 you are welcome to post your ideas but do not bash the 3.41 firmware. If you are here just to bash, you are not welcome here... JUST GET THE F#$% OUT...:thefinger: I'm tired of this crap...

      I had been waiting for a hermes release since the cfw first hit the front page lol as i don't care for or want PSN as hermes payloads have never given me problems where as PL3 has (maybe PL3 don't like 256 nands too lol)

      Anyways i can confirm this works on CECHG03 (UK PHAT 40gb 256 nand)
      installed perfectly from recovery on both my phats. They play what they used to with no problems at all EG:GT5, NFS:HP and Splatter House. I am using Gaia 1.4 with ftp black box 1.1 along with modified eboots that worked for 3.50/3.55 games on 3.41 JB

      lol just brought another dead ps3 for a �10 so if i can spring it in to life too i may just keep it for messing about with 3.55 cfws as for a tenner i can handle what ever sony decide to do to people with cfw 3.55 on PSN just as long as they don't make CFW hacked PS3's on PSN explode into flames as i have new carpets lol

      With people having problems with loaders please note all new versions of loaders have a PL3 payload which is what is causing your problems, If you are having problems then please use this method insted.

      First off in case you did not allready know there is a new version of the hermes payload PayloadHv4.PKG link to it below, If you dont have it or you dont even have the first version then download this and extract it.
      http://www.ps3hax.net/downloads.php?...#axzz1C4Qf9IxT.

      Now search for this file "payloadhv4.pkg" once you find it copy it to the root of your USB HDD or USB Flash stick and install it on the PS3.

      Now run the App from the game tab on the XMB the screen will go black then the message "PAYLOAD LOADED" or somthing to that effect and the XMB will reload now install GAIA or what ever loader worked when you used to jailbreak. for me it was GAIA 1.4,
      Once you have installed a loader that dose not have a payload preloader in it then you can load it up and use it like you used to.

      You will have to reload the Payload App from the XMB each time you switch on or restart then console.

      BTW allso please note you will not be able to load BLU RAY, DVD or CD Disc's while the payload is running you will have to reboot to disable the payload to be able to run these

      Hope this info helps out some noobs who need more info

      This link works i have it installed on both my phats i found it on PSX SCENE a memeber called [C*] posted it there

      LINK TO SOURCE: http://psx-scene.com/forums/f6/custo...7/index19.html 6th post down confirmed for me that someone else had tryed that download with good results. (allways let some mug go first )

      LINK TO FILE DOWNLOAD: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=DV3991WL

      Hope this helps props to [C*] over at PSX-SCENE.COM for posting it

      To install you may have to use the recovery method which is what i had to do but i do hear that you can install it from XMB but for me i had to go through recovery.

      To get in to recovery just turn on the PS3 and keep your finger on the power button untill it turns off, Then turn it on and keep your finger on the button there till you hear 1 beep followed by 2 quick beeps then release. It will ask you too connect a pad with a wire and a menu with 6 option will be displayed you will need option 6 (you have to keep that wire in for the pad to work so if you only have 2 usb ports some USB HDD's will struggle here lol my usb HDD needed 2 ports had to use a memstick to put this CFW pup on to)

      Sorry if this comes across ignorant at all, but through all the bulls**t about how "oh, 3.41 is old now, just move to 3.50 lololol" i can't quite make out the info i'm looking for.
      Just a couple of quick questions:

      - Does this still have a 'no disc booting' sort of feature? Essentual as my drive is busted.

      - Which managers are working with this so far? All of them? Newest version of Gaia for example?

      - Will i need to boot the V4c PKG every time i boot up?

      Sorry if these HAVE already been answered, but as i say - amongst all the crap, it's a job to find the info you're looking for.

      Yeah I would know that 2. But I think I will stick on ofw 3.41 and wait for the the release of Full Rebug CFW first

      New Rebug Release Incoming Soon!

      1 - this CFW onlys adds 'install packages' option to the xmb not the 'apphome/PS3_GAME' folder like in jailbreak, so I think you still need a disc in the drive (I could be wrong though?)

      2 - I tried Gaia Manager that I was using before I updated to Herme's CFW and it wouldn't boot but MultiMan (also installed pre update to CFW) boots no problem (I think because it is signed, not sure if theres an updated signed Gaia manager for 3.41)

      3 - the V4C pkg will only have to run once to install the package, but the program it installs will have to be ran every time to load hermes' payload into RAM

      How do you get your games to run discless? I have to insert a disc in order for the game to appear on xmb!

      First off Gaia 1.4 works best for me though link to it below
      http://psgroove.com/content.php?448-....04.1-Released

      Now you apply the Payload pkg after the PS3 start up then you will get the app_home/PS3_GAME Folder appear above the install, I just load game in GAIA 1.4 then when XMB reappears I scroll up to the app_home/PS3_GAME folder which will change to what ever the game i choose to run, then i click to run as normal.

      Allso i use the version 2 of Hermes payload pkg i have add'd a link to it a page or 2 back but here it is again
      http://mods.elotrolado.net/%7Ehermes...payloadhv4.zip

      perhaps if you still can not get games to play discless using GAIA 1.4 you should give it a go

      EDIT: you have to run the payload pkg before you install GAIA 1.4 or any other unsigned loader or other unsigned hombrew!!

      EDIT 2: Just noticed that the Payload Download link was dead so i added a new one

      Unless the power fails during firmware install you will not brick lol

      Power cuts is one thing i allways fear when doing firmware updates or installs on my consoles.

      comfirmed working on ps3 slim 2002a, with payload 1.04
      since it says 3.41 in the system information, hold down x on the program and select patch app_ver to run gt5, and other 3.50 games

      more info when you hold X (from Asamiya 26 Jan 2011 17:04 page 136)

      1) XMB Debug -> Sale with debug options (/ app_home/PS3GAME)

      2) Retail XMB -> Exit with the standard options (like when you turn the console, but with patches)

      3) With PS3_SYSTEM_VER XMB Retail patch -> to load games from Bluray EBOOT.BIN patched version and replacing the other from USB (see readme.txt)

      4) Press to patch / unpatched APP_VER -> patched version of the application to avoid the online update

      5) UnMountDevices -> removed all redirects (syscall 36, redirect to / app_home/PS3GAME, etc)
