  • Features:
    • Compatible CEX/DEX/SEX/(TOOL ?)
    • Debug non-fself & fself in real time (vsh.self for example can be debugged in rte, or any game with non debug eboot)
    • Debug kernel in real time(lv2_kernel.self and lv1.self)
  • Classic functions (RTE on CEX + DEX):
    • getProcessMemory
    • setProcessMemory
    • shutdown/reboot
    • work with Wireless connection
    • bypass exec pages writing restriction
    • bypass lv2 memory protection
  • new functionalities like:
    • peek/poke lv1 and lv2
    • setConsoleID at anytime/anywhere
    • setConsoleLed
    • ringBuzzer
    • getTemperature
    • VSH module loading
    • notify
  • Supported Firmware:
    • CFW 4.21,4.30,4.40,4.41,4.46,4.50, 4.53, 4.55, 4.60, 4.65 CEX or DEX (+ 4.66CEX)


  • How to install CCAPI:
    Just download and run this pkg on your ps3.
    It will tell you to reboot, and it's done. You only need to do this once.
  • How to uninstall CCAPI
    Just run again the pkg.
  • Is it risky
    In the worst case, you could need to reinstall your firmware.


VSH module loading:
create a plugins directory and put all your sprx plugins into it.
/dev_usb000/plugins
/dev_usb000/plugins/prx_name1.sprx
/dev_usb000/plugins/prx_name2.sprx

All of the sprx that are present in this folder, will be loaded at ps3 boot.

Important:
If some games refuse to work, just don't use plugins, delete plugins folder from /dev_usb000


CCAPI 2.60[edit]

Installation[edit]

When installing, CCAPI (the ps3 application) creates a config file (/dev_flash/sys/internal/config.cfg) in which some data, depending on the console, is stored. This file has a size of 240 (0xF0) bytes.

Commands[edit]

When calling a ccapi function, a packet containing a command id is sent to the ps3. The ps3 then analyzes the packet and makes a switch on the command id.
