News/release from Hellcat:
- Flashes a fresh M33 CFW (3.71, 4.01)
for recovering semi-bricks or to up-/downgrade CFW
- does not use Pandora, runns from the recovery menu or the XMB
- does not use (as in launch) the original Sony Updater (only extracts
all required files from the original .PBP)
- runns fine on CFWs lower than 3.52-M33-3 - handy for upgrading older
FWs w/o the "need to go 3.52, then 3.52-3, then higher" odyssey :-)
- runns fine from TimeMachine (3.40-OE on Fat and 3.60-M33 on Slim)
- can backup the FW flash and restore selected parts (XMB theme,
settings, PSN activation)
After launching the app, either from the recovery menu or via the XMB
you'll eventually get into the mainmenu.
Everything should be pretty selfexplanatory, you can flash a new
firmware, make a complete flash0 to flash2 backup or restore certain
things from your backup.
The option "Launch another app" will give you a list of the games/apps
you have in /PSP/GAME on your memstick.
You can then choose one and run it directely from Recovery Flasher.
Usefull to use some other apps on semibricks when you can't use the
XMB to launch them, or for those people who already have a preffered
app they use from the recovery menu but want to install the Flasher
Restoring a complete firmware from a backup
Since v1.30 you can restore a complete firmware from your flash backup.
This can be almost any firmware you like and it doesn't matter what's
currently installed on the PSP (current firmware and firmware to be
installed can be different).
It could be a FW not natively supported by Recovery Flasher or a
premodded one, for example.
You can even flash the backup of one PSP to another one!
The signchecks, that usually prevent copying a flash0 between
different PSPs, are removed during backup and recreated while restoring!
REQUIREMENTS: There's only one tiny bit required in addition to your
backup: The original updater .PBP of the firmware you are going to
restore! Again, this can be either in the RECOVERY folder itself, or
in the memstick root, with the usual renaming applied.
The updater is required to load some special modules needed for
initialising the flash for the firmware that's going to be flashed.
Finally, take note that this is a bit more dangerous than installing
a fresh FW since we can't know what has been done to the files, and
if some are damaged or even missing it can result in a brick - so always
be cautious if using a backup from someone else!
NOTE: For restoring a 3.60-M33 on the Slim, use the 3.52 updater (352.PBP)
Since v1.30 you can also have multiple backups at once.
When making a backup you have the coice of overwriting an existing one
or creating a new one. When creating a new one, folders will be named
like "Backup_001", "Backup_002" and so forth.
You are then free to rename those folders to whatever you like to give
them more descriptive names for what's in there.
Recovery Flasher will show the renamed folders with no problems and
you can then use them to restore or save new backups in there.
You can also create folder with propper names before making a backup
and then "fill" the backup into them.
The backup folders are located in ms0:/flash_backup/
