Backup thread for BD issue(dev_flash3
Backup thread for BD issue(dev_flash3 –
Hello everyone I thought I would make a thread where people can upload their backups for the /dev_flash3/ so hopefully we can get a full list of backups for each model and region. That way we can fix this issue.
I don't have a working PS3 atm due to bricking it(waiting on thumb drive.) But basically include all this information if you can, and if you have successfully used a BD after downgrade please include a backup of your dev flash contents.
what pup file:
Blu ray player work for films:
link to log file:
Link to /dev_flash3/ backup :
Again include a backup that is either before the downgrade, or after a successful downgrade and you have tested a BD movie.
EDIT: Credit goes to bennyboi2005 for the content of his other thread.
To grab the flash you should just be able to FTP them over and zip them up. Make sure to preserve the file structure. meaning FTP over the folder and Zip it up as is.
Pseudo FAQ :
In theory it should work. We aren't 100% sure yet. But if you would like to add the files for people to test, please follow the guide lines above.

original Fw: 3.40 -> 3.41->3.42->3.50
downgraded to: 3.41
what pup file: DGF from sendspace
Blu ray player work for films: Yes
link to log file: Sorry deleted mine
Link to /dev_flash3/ backup
My current PS3 that never passed 3.41fw although I did put a different hard drive in (and had to reinstall fw) did not have any files in dev_flash3 folder.
The downgraded PS3 at the moment is going through a system transfer utility so I can't grab that at the moment.
Also I don't think dev_flash2 and dev_flash3 folder holds anything besides the atrc,WMA, and divx activation.
Most likely would be stored in vsh folder since that's where most of the basic needed files are stored for the OS
more info on my downgrading HERE (WARNING! RED ALERT! DOWNGRADING KILLS BLU-RAY MOVIE PLAYBACK!).

EDIT: Again once you guys have successfully done the downgrade please reply with a link to a backup. I would like this thread to turn into a resource for anyone to quickly grab their make and models dev_flash if they are having playback problems.
Cheers bud now hopefully more people will follow suit....

Its got to be something in the DRL directory - CRL files are identical to PS3 EURO 3.41 DRL file have different data - Looks like CRL files are identical for all 3.41 and DRL contain Region coding. and also the registry file needs checking for region errors.
Whether or not the programming is still the same. I don't wanna jeopardize it. So the best bet is to upload your particular version. It's easier to have a database full of the same code and be safe, then a database of one file that could potentially screw up every user that uses it.

EDIT: To clarify please reply with all the information from the first post. Reason why? It isolates problems, and when you look for a flash dump you can match everything on your system. From firmware, region, to even make and model. That way hopefully people won't say grab something from 3.41 and use it on 3.15. So that way if there are any files that "could" potentially screw something up if they aren't identical it won't happen. But I don't have a working PS3 to verify files. People are saying they aren't significant but I would much rather be safe then sorry.
