PS3 System Software Update v4.65 Arrives, Network Status Updates
Following up on their previous update, today Sony announced that PS3 System Software Update v4.65 is now available as a minor optional update alongside details on their current PlayStation Network status below.
From haz367 regarding PS3 MFW 4.65: anyways, u checked 465 already? so far done, previous u did update the task for 460, specially the REACT OFFLINE vsh patch although it got patched, u sure the second part is correct?! looks more a Firmw 446>34 patch?! updated that one + for 465... testing atm...
From Joonie86: Calm down guys, there is no changes in bd firmware nor the sv_iso [iso handling functions of PS3 games]
I'm going to get lv2dump and trying to port some payloads, I'm pretty sure it will work and also going to try habib's anti-ode patch.
From butnut on his Remove Cinavia patch for 4.60 and 4.65 MFW (linked above): This is for 4.60 and 4.65 only. It will replace the files:
So backup your files first if you want. This will not remove Cinavia from optical disc based media.
From bitsbubba: Why do people keep insisting on replacing all 3 of these files: videoeditor_plugin.sprx & videoplayer_util.sprx are the exact same files on DEX or CEX. The only file that needs replacing is videoplayer_plugin.sprx.
From butnut in rebuttal: Because the guy that came up with the method in the first place said he traced Cinavia in all three files. I'm just doing what he said, and I have never had any issues with it.
This is what tical said back in 2011: "I have traced the Cinavia DRM checks to 4 separate sprx files and after a long time trying to patch these files I have found that 3 of those files are present in the DEBUG (DEX) firmware don't have the Cinavia DRM checks enabled. Files are videoplayer_util sprx, videoplayer_plugin sprx and videoeditor_plugin sprx.
I have successfully copied these 3 sprx files from DEBUG (DEX) FW 341 over to my retail PS3 unit running OFW 341 using dev_blind and Cinavia seems to be now disabled. I've confirmed this by playing back a number of Cinavia affected video files.
This means that Cinavia is now disabled for all DLNA playback and copying, but Cinavia checks on AVCHD and BD playback are still present with Message Code 3 that mutes the audio as the sprx file with the Cinavia check bdp_plugin sprx is not present in DEX firmware because BD playback is disabled in DEBUG. If someone is able to patch Cinavia out of bdp_plugin sprx this will be solved too.
I have created a new task for PS3MFW so this can be easily made part of any new MFW's as needed. Any FW version that has had the DEX firmware leaked should be able to be used to create a CFW of the same version. eg DEX 3.41 -> MFW 341 or DEX 355 -> MFW 355 etc etc. Don't use sprx files from different FW versions! See git hacks for change_cinavia_files task source.
Big thanks to the KaKaRoTo and REBUG team for their community contributions as this would have never been possible without the knowledge they've shared with us.
PLEASE NOTE I DO NOT OFFER ANY GUARANTEE WHEN MESSING WITH YOU PS3 SO DOING ANYTHING TO YOUR PS3 IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE IF YOU DAMAGE YOUR PS3."
From aldostools comes an updated Fan Control Utility (ISO / No GUI) v2.07 (linked above) with the following changes:
Fan Control Utility (ISO/No GUI) 2.07
This is an unofficial version of Fan Control Utility by Estwald that auto-quits immediately to XMB after set the fan policy. Hold (X) for 10 seconds to enable the GUI. The settings will be saved in the internal HDD, if the included PKG is installed and dev_hdd0/game/CTRLFAN00/fan_speed.dat exists.
Note: The AUTOBOOT.ISO for COBRA 7 auto-quits. There are 2 PKG files: one has no GUI, the other always shows the GUI. If you use CFW COBRA 7, you can use the Dynamic Fan Control option in [Register or Login to view links] or webMAN-MOD 1.30.x.
Thanks to Estwald for the payload for 4.55CEX, PS3L1GHT environment and the open source project. Thanks to HABIB for the payloads for 4.46/4.50/4.53CEX/4.60CEX, Rancid-O for DEX payloads.
PS3 BD DVD Cinavia Patch by Habib and Mysis (linked above) with details below, as follows:
Mysis, the world famous reverse engineer & myself (Habib) worked together in this release, it took us >3 weeks to crack.
Now I present you the patches which will make this Cinavia patch easily portable for hdd content without the need of dex fw. Example taken from 4.55 from videoplayer_plugin.sprx:
Finally, as usual PlayStation 3 scene profiteer garyopa recommends ODE users not update to PS3 Firmware 4.65 until it is examined by PlayStation 3 developers of their device to see if any further blocking protection has been added since the last revision.
Update: It is now confirmed as SAFE to update to v4.65 as it will work fine with v2.2 and DMC on all consoles, with more details available here.
PS3 4.65 Spoof Enabler / Disabler by Arachetous for PSN on CFW Out
Following up on Sony's PS3 Firmware v4.65 release and his previous update, today French PlayStation 3 developer arachetous made available a PS3 4.65 Spoof Enabler / Disabler which allows 4.xx CEX CFW users to connect to PSN with details below.
bean: What makes you say that? 4.65 is optional. It's 4.60 that's required. I wasn't required to update to 4.65, but I did it anyway just to have it. They'll probably come out with another update in the future that's required that includes the update features anyway, so it doesn't really matter either way.
Ah, I see. The thing is, even with the 4.65 update, there is still an updated security measure in place. So it's not officially required to update, but if you have CFW, you should consider the spoof update due to the updated security with 4.65.
