    I want too do some research into stuff like widgets, older XMB stuff. Really I would like debug output and ftp access etc on lower fw like v1.00, 2.80 , 3.00 etc. what are the chances?

    Has anyone ever made pre 3.41 CFW? Should I convert to DEX and use old DEX FW for research?

    Can I use MFW builder on 1.00 etc?

    In mfw builder. Most patches (all of them?) are searching for hex string, and if found replace it with patched one. This can be tricky on so old firmware. Some false positives can occur, and patch can be applied in bad place.

    Anyway, there is a high chance that MFW builder will work. About DEX fw, this seems to be best way to go. But better ask @Joonie or someone else who were on so low firmware earlier. But not sure how much output you will get with DEX fw. I mean you got all deci/prodg output that way, but probably nothing similar to "live" file access like on cobra. Not really sure that i'm right here.

    If some CFW maker wants a little side project, please make some older CFWs for research purposes. We need like v1.50 Cobra CFW, 2.50 Cobra CFW. :)

    @Bobby_Downgrades maybe?

    I would be interested in some 2.80 CFW, specially for thoes older Phat users or collectors, whom want the benifits of the CFW, but want the firmware originality, specially Fan Control.

    The problem might be with the PS2 Backwards Compatibility patches into the self itself, remember patches were added until 4.30,so there are some PS2 Titles that don't work properly on older firmwares, specially for the C/E models,unless you can add the latest PS2GX_Emu.self into the older CFW, which might not be compatible.

    I want toi say there was something made for
    I do not think DeViL is looking for a polished CFW, he is looking for research purposes for XMB modding.
    As there has been changes of things through the firmware.

    if he can see how things worked before compared to now maybe some things disabled / removed later can be restored or even light can be shed on so other modules. I am just guessing ere and not speaking for @DeViL303 but i doubt he is looking for any features like that.

    Well there is no need for a older CFW to be honest, i see the lads are working on restoring the older assets from pre-3.00 firmware, on the newer ones, which its fair enough, better compatibility, less hassle and everyone its happy.

    I've heard that some dev made a cfw for firmware 1.0. I don't know where to find it though.

    you don't understand the intentions. He is not looking for a CFW on older firmware to use it every day.

    if @DeViL303 feels like it can be helpful to his research i think he is the only to speak on that aspect.

    Stands to make more sense in seeing if things work on an earlier CFW then to port and then see.
    I can see how it would be useful thing for developers. but he is not suggesting it be made for everyday or user use.
    Its for development purposes its for research.

    Perhaps i didnt express myself correctly, my apologies, i did understand his intentions are not to make any CFW, and the files are purely for research puroposes, i do agree on the point made.

    I know Evil Nat made a 3.21 CFW for sure not really sure about any prior to that.


    Edit

    I was wrong it was the firmware right before 3.21 as it was the last firmware with OtherOS he made a CFW for but all the links seem to be gone as they were on Megaupload and not the new Mega links. If I wonder across it somehow I'll post the links. Thought I had it in a MediaFire account but alas I do not.

    Yes there was a Debug 1.00 firmware that used to be on Assembler Games but they closed and I can't seem to find the link in the WayBack Machine. I can find the article on it but not the link.

    Speaking about 1.00 Debug, a French lad, had a CECHC04 with that firmware, he shows a demo of it, although doesn't explain on how he did it, nor the procedures, the video should be live on YouTube as we speak.

    I know PixelButts did this as he was going through and documenting all the changes from 1.00 or was it 1.01 on up to the latest firmware.

    Well getting a video of v1.00 is the easy bit, Just downgrade and record with PVR. CFW 1.00 not so easy..

    I will try make one someday.

    Oh, Sorry. Didnt think there is any issue with getting those. There are loads of places.

    This one is good, has pre retail DEX too. ;)
