• PS3 Tutorials , 10.02.2011



    !!DISCLAIMER/WARNING/WHATEVER, YOU’LL DO IT ANYWAY…

    Make a back up of your dev_flash before attempting anything with writrable flash (PS3 Firmware) slightest mistake could cost you your ps3.

    If you do brick, and it blinks when doing so, boot into recovery and re-flash your current firmware - 3.55

    Unbrick PS3

    The above tutorial covers *soft bricks*, so just be careful, I will not be held responsible for your unfortunate misshaps.

    ITEMS NEEDED
    [x] COMGENIE AWESOME FILEMANAGER

    [x] ASBESTOS INSTALLER 1.4 PKG

    1: Download AsbestOS 1.4 & install.

    2: Run It. Leave it to install, no HDD light will flash while installing, so you’ll have to just wait untill it finishes.

    Once its done it will have PRESS [X] TO QUIT Or something, also you will get an error stating that it could not inject something into LV2 - IGNORE the error.

    3. Now go to Comgenie and there you will have another folder saying rwdev_flash.

    4. Just be careful, i cannot stress this enough.

    [*] Thanks to Bobby Blunt. : ) for showing me this neat trick :D

      Please 'hackers' comment and explain your **** properly.

      Don't get your frilly panties all twisted, gliitch meant 1.4, it was an honest mistake.

      1.4 download link will be added to first post.

      Minor update. you'll need to run Asbestos everytime, to get writable flash, it does take 10mins to do. but the changes are perminant. its eaither that, or delving into hex to edit values... your call

      LOL NO, If your asking that question, do not attempt to use this. YOU WILL DESTROY YOUR PS3 and you wont be able to play PS3 games never mind PS2 games.

      looks like this dont work for WANINKOKO_V2 i re made the pkg to install on this firmware it locks the ps3 up when you try to exit


      third time lucky my pkg works here its is http://www.megaupload.com/?d=SZEMOB7U

      so, this makes the ps3 read the rw instead of regular dev_flash? or, you mod rwdev_flash and it then mods dev_flash and the ps3 reads that? or does it rename dev_flash to rwdev_flash so you can write, then it names it back when you reboot?

      it was stated that changes are permenent, and i have to run abest installer everytime i want to write? right?

      anyone know, or do i just need to go check it out?

      Well, I did what you said and I too had the same folders

      app_home
      host_root
      dev_flash
      dev_flash2
      dev_flash3
      dev_hdd0
      dev_bdv

      ,but no rwdev_flash folder. Linux booted up fine though.

      i've read all the info and comments but still don't quite understand what this is used for. is it for booting linux or something else all entirely, like keeping jailbreak features going into 3.56?

      i just really wanna get back online without losing my jailbreak features. only reason why i still play video games is because of online gaming.

      please any developers out their willing to be legends?
      Look, you've been told a million times about begging for CFW. This post is getting reported, hopefully you get infracted! And if you were able to read, you would know that installing a 3.56 CFW traps you at that level with no way to get out. The have already discovered this. They couldn't change enough to stop us from hacking, but you are trapped a 3.56 CFW. No safe upgrade, no safe downgrade. Do some research and quit your begging!

      To clear some things up first here what its NOT USED FOR:

      MAKING SANDWICHES
      [ham and cheese ones or hot Pockets - not to be confused with Pockets69 thats a completely different type of sandwich]

      HAVING A BIG BAG FULL OF CRABS AND PUTTING THEM IN YOUR MOUTH, OH YES.

      DEFENDING YOU AGAINST 21/12/2012 [END OF THE WORLD ACCORDING TO THE MYANS]


      What it IS used for:

      Making Hot Pockets - yes the 69 Type.

      But seriously its for XMB/PS3 customisation, enabling changing of anything that you can edit, be it Dev Options, PS3 Bootup Sound, Boot Video, Enabling of other stuff that Sony have shut off/disabled/took away, made excuses for... . So you can really customise YOUR PS3 and not put up with what SONY put on it.

      Afterall, you paid for it, why shouldnt you be able to do what you want with it?.. hmm? XD

      Well I never got this error "also you will get an error stating that it could not inject something into LV2 – IGNORE the error." Mine went through and updated from AsBestOS 1.3 to 1.4 and then the Linux Logon Screen appeared. I'm on a phat 80 GB running 3.55 kmeaw. So how do get the rwdev_flash folder. Also I used the latest MultiMan to explore HDD contents and never saw that fodler there. Help me please. Thxs.

      you run the asbestos installer but dont run the lv2 patcher afterwards. If you are seeing the linux screen you ran lv2 patcher. Run the AsbestOS installer then go to comgenies file manager and you will see it.
