Hi ,I noticed the other thread got closed ,reason being that dev_flash is unique to every ps3, just like to make sure everyone knows that this not true, I can swap all the files as I want between my 2 slims no problem using firmloader, ive modded all my categorys too and could provide a link to the file so everyone can try it and see.ive also tried files from my fat 3.15 and they wok too.
explore_category_sysconf.rco are quite intersting
lots of mentions of otherOS and debug/tool in these two rcos!
lots of different values too in same areas between 3.41 an 3.15, seems all references to OtherOS were left in after 3.15 but they just changed the values, makes it easy for us! lots of testing to be done though, im trying to get the format disk utility for otherOS going but keep going too far amd crashing system and having to go back tracing mistakes, Lots of chance of getting more debug options going too if we could get a dev_flash of any debug/tool sysyems that would help alot
Ive had some fun messing with xmb though , Ive turned my game category into homebrew category , getting rid of all extra icons just leaving my homebrew install hombrew icon, then turned network category into a game category with all the extra gamesave icons and shite I didnt want in homebrew,then I changed psn category to webbrowser and shite as dont need that category on 3.41 for now,friend category is now called "homies
One of the devs on here could share an old dev_flash dump from a tool/debug as I think that would get things going too. surely ye in the know have been dumping flash for years?!
Im gonna try load my slim 3.41 dev_flash on usb onto my fat 3.15 to test if we can fake upgrade with this.can anyone here compile another firmloader app that also redirects dev_hdd to dev_usb002 so we can emulate hard drive and flash of two different usb sticks?

well tell that to the admin he closed my thread because the dev_flash1 is unique from a ps3 to another, i sent him a message telling him that be sure before closing threads because it is not true and it has been proved that you can use them.
but soon there will be nothing unique in 3.15 (otheros) than the 3.41 because the abestos will be out soon

Tried loading my 3.41flash on my 3.15 console but firmloader doesnt seem to work on my 60gb launch model, just loads standard firmware after rebooting.probably due to larger nand in 60gb consoles so maybe paths are not the same, or it was because i was loading a slims dev_flash, I have another 40gb fat that i will try too later, if I can get homebrew running on it as bluray is giving trouble

I too can confirm this. 1) Hashes from two different pd3 dumps match. 2) I downloaded someone's 3.15 dev_flash and it ran on my slim (buggy though).
try to use 0.03 jaic loader not 0.02
i am using 0.03, i will try again with my 40gb 3.15 dev_flash folder, might make a difference as its a phat one too, not sure.

2) PS3 3.01 EU 60GB 4xUSB (currently JBreaked with hermes v3 and HTC G1)
I try to boot my backuped dev_flash 3.01(2) or 3.41(1) from a 1TB Ext USB fat32 but always do a strange reboot to xbm, with some visible lines, but never boots
location of dev_flash is in x:\dev_flash and I dont have copied
dev_flash2 and dev_flash3 to drive root, only dev_flash
I tryed all the 4 usb ports, but no fun YET
can someone guide how to use PS3 USB Custom Firmware Loader with my JB PS3 3.01?
thanks in advance

Reason: correct typos
Make sure the dev_flash dump is in the root of you usb drive and not in a folder..
