Team Rebug has released another amazing tool for Jailbreak PS3 owners to use
'Team Rebug' has shocked the PS3 homebrew world again by releasing a new super-duper tool called LV2 LOADER, which basically allows you to load a 'modified' Kernal directly into your Jailbreakable PS3
There was some crazy rumors that 'Team Rebug' had left the PS3 'scene' after people saw the news of their new project for the Xbox 360, but that was far from the truth, as today they released a new amazing tool called LV2 LOADER, which allows end-users or hard-core developers to load a modded LV2 kernal directly without the risk of bricking their PS3 system, and then needing a hardware flasher to restore their console.
For More Information and Support please visit their official release thread below:LV2 Loader is a tool for devs to allow the quick testing of modified lv2_kernel.self by launching it from the root of dev_flash without the risk of bricking the PS3 or need for a flasher if the new kernel does not work.
The app will run on any 3.15, 3.41, 3.55 CEX or DEX firmware that has lv1 mmap and lv2 peek and poke patches. It also has udp_printf support which will return the offset of the lv2 boot path in lv1 and a little bit of info about what it is doing.
It works by searching lv1 memory for the lv2_kernel.self boot path then modifying it to point to the root of dev_flash instead. After it finishes searching and patching the path LV2 Loader will reboot lv2 gameos without rebooting lv1.
If the app has already been ran once and the user attempts to run it again before rebooting lv1 or the current lv2 kernel does not have peek and poke it will return you to the XMB.
Using FTP or multiMAN/file manager place your modified lv2_kernel.self into the root of dev_flash on your PS3.
HOW TO USE:
1: Install lv2_loader.pkg
2: Run LV2 Loader from XMB
3: PS3 will beep and reboot. (If you do not hear a beep it has not worked)
NOTE: As long as you do not reboot lv1 you can continue to use the new path and change the lv2_kernel.self each time if you wish.
