Default [Dec 21][APP]PS3DJB v2.5.1 Supports Eng, Ger, Nor, Esp & Fr

Hello everyone,

Here is my app i have been working on. It will install all files to your sd card needed to jailbreak and downgrade your ps3 with your HD2 Only. Now i have some time think this link is long overdue to be posted. Where this app originated from. Again thank you to all the other devs out there for there hard work that has now become a all in one solution.


What the app does:

This app will allow you to downgrade your firmware to any firmware you want. (PS3 Slim's cannot go as far back as Fat Consoles.) The downgrade only works with FW's up to 3.50. (If you have FW3.55 you are out of luck for now. Unfortunately there is no solution on the market nor in the community for that FW version.) This app will also allow you to patch your android build with all the files needed to jailbreak your ps3.(this will be changed real soon.) It also includes many payloads so u can use the one that best matches your needs.

Other Languages:

German version Located here I have also translated the first post in German as well. Enjoy

Norwegian version Located here I have also translated the first post in Norwegian as well. Enjoy

Spanish version Located here. It is compatible with Esp Rom's storage cards. I have also translated the first post in Spanish as well. Enjoy

French version Located here. It is compatible with Fr Rom's storage cards. I have also translated the first post in French as well. Enjoy


Instructions:
you will need to download both files found below.

DowngradeUpdater(needed)

PS3DJB Updated to 2.5.1 - English Only - Now Includes darkstone hd2froyo v3 in a custom folder just for jailbreaking. Size 103mb

Install:

Make sure you have placed your android build of your choice on the root of your sd card before installing. Your android build must be placed in the Android folder.

1.install downgradeupdater.cab to storage card. (this only contains the downgrade folder)
2. install PS3DJB.cab to storage card. (this contains the main UI and all jailbreak files)(does not include modified 3.41 PUP, lv2diag.self file 1 and lv2diag.self file 2)
Pre Use:
1. run app and select backup original android build (must do this first before you run setup jailbreak if you want to keep your original zImage of your Android build.)
2. select setup jailbreak. This will transfer all the files to your android build. if you replace your android build later on with a newer version just rerun the setup jailbreak.

Use:

1. once you set up jailbreak then proceed to select Launch PS3DJB. Follow the jailbreak instructions on the process. There are tons of tuts on how to do so. It is all they same for the most part. What is different for the HD2 is Once you boot into Android go and launch Gscript and select the payload of your choice. Then wait till it starts to auto countdown then plug the phone into the ps3 and start the jailbreak process.
2. If you want to downgrade your ps3 launch downgrader. This will take you to a mini android build made specifically for downgrading your ps3. This will not affect your other android builds

Questions and Answers:

Q) how do I know when everything backed up, restored or setup for jailbreak?
A) it will complete when the button image snaps back to normal when completed.
Q) im done downgrading and cant turn off the phone with the power button?
A) If you run the downgrade portion of the app you will need to pull the battery out when your done and reboot the phone. this is not due to my app it is part of the downgrade setup.
Q) Where is the Gscript folder located at?
A) gscript folder installs to the root of your SD card. It should install when you install the PS3DJB.CAB if you do not see it. Reboot your phone. Sometimes it caches till a reboot. not sure if its a OS issue or a Rom issue.
Q) I started Gscript and only see a couple of payloads. Isnt there more?
A) if you are missing payloads in gscript listing hit the windows button then select add script. Then finally select load. find a missing script select it and save. it will now populate to your main list in gscript. you will need to add. hermes 3.50 + PSN v4b, CE-X hybrid payload, and 2.76FW payload.
Q) I have multiple android builds will this mess with them?
A) Yes and No. It will only mess the the android build located in the Android Folder. If you want to make sure your stock android build stays stock after jailbreaking run the backup original android build button first to back up a copy of your original zImage. Once your done jailbreaking just run restore original android build to restore the backedup zImage.
Q) Do I need to install the downgradeupdater.Cab if I don’t plan on downgrading?
A) No you do not. It does not affect anything releated jailbreaking. If you hit the launch downgrader button without it installed will cause the app to display a message about it missing.
Q) if i downgrade will i loss my game saves? if so how do i keep them?
A) If you downgrade you may loose your game save. Go to system settings and back up your system. the option is at the bottom of the list almost. you can restore the same way

if you have any suggestion let me know.
enjoy!

PAYLOADS included:
Hermes v4b+355 FW3.41
CE-X FW3.41
Hermes FW3.41
Hermes v4b + psn + 3.50 FW3.41
PL3 FW2.76
PL3 FW3.01
PL3 FW3.10
PL3 FW3.15
PL3 FW3.41

*IMPORTANT*
for downgrading you will need the 3.41 modified pup, lv2diag.self file 1 and lv2diag.self file 2. these are needed once you obtain service mode

Change log:

Version 2.5.1
*added my custom data.img (57mb) to jailbreak rom. Should save a lot more space on the storage card and boot faster. My boot took 1 min 37 sec which was faster than the 1GB data.img created on first boot.

Version 2.5

*Removed setup Jailbreak, backup and restore buttons.
*Jailbreaking now has a dedicated folder that has a pre setup build of android ready to jailbreak
*included a dedicated android launch button for those who have daily use builds of android on there phone located in the android folder
*new start menu icon - thanks to drkfngthdragnlrd

Version 2.0

*removed any backing up or replacing of initrd.gz as it is not really needed for our purposes.
*should work better with new builds of android as i backed off the filestructure some.


version 1.6


*backup original android build now backs up zImage and initrd.gz
*restore original android build now restores zImage and initrd.gz

version 1.5

*added backup original android build button - this will back up your original zImage on your untouched android build.
*added restore original android build button - this will restore your original zImage and delete all files related to jailbreaking in your android folder
*updated functionality of setup Jailbreak button - now will create all jailbreak related directories in the android folder then install all files needed.

Thanks goes out to:
mangahoteles, Darkstone, Dan1j3l for the original builds of psfandroid

Wonderful app! Thank you for your work. Wouldn't this be better suited for the HD2 Apps forum though?

i thought it might be but was not sure. if a mod wants to move it feel free.

This app just make things easier/noobier for people who want to jailbreak or downgrade there ps3. i personally got annoyed always having to open file explorer and hit both options to launch. i have a lot of crap on my sd card so this makes it easier for me and i hope others. it will also give you a dedicated folder for the downgrade.

i can always make the jb a dedicated folder but i notice that android runs fine with the jb files integrated. it did not affect my user experience so i did not do that originally.

Doesn't work for german ROMs, cause in german "Storage Card" means "Speicherkarte" and so the path for the setup is wrong ... Installing is no problem.
