Video: PS3 Slim Retail Console Running 3.66 Custom Firmware

Sponsored Links
181w ago - As a follow-up to the previous JaicraB JFW DH PS3 Custom Firmware videos came a video (below) by pdnked of a PS3 Slim Retail console running Rebug 3.66 Custom Firmware (which is actually PS3 OFW 3.66 with a few Debug files added) from Dospiedras1973 via Spanish site [Register or Login to view links].

A rough translation from [Register or Login to view links] states the following:

Dospiedras1973, EOL and user who has already managed to do the downgrade recently consoles INFECTUS using FAT for that necessary, has released a firmware that allows PS3 to version 3.66 with options debug a machine operative. Some clarifications are annotated by the developer:

Dospiedra Modified Firmware details to note:

  • Only user-3.55 (no matter if CFW or OFW)
  • No turning back, pass over to 3.66 with all that that entails. Only you can downgrade to INFECTUS (dospiedras method).
  • No syscalls / payloads ... so that the burden of copies is disabled. For what is agreed is a firmware guy ... GeoHot.
  • The 3.55 homebrew installed no longer work.
  • There is no package installer (for now).
  • Full access to PSN.
  • Works on both Fat and Slim (as shown in the video), no tricks hardware and could suggest a user in the comments.

Of course, install under your own responsibility, nor do I Dospiedras not responsible for any errors or omissions performed by the user.

Shortly following, Rebug developer Cyberskunk stated via ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/206-?p=1380#post1380 the following warning: "DO NOT INSTALL THIS. After ripping this PUP apart it appears the rundown will be VERY VERY SHORT.

This is RETAIL OFW 3.66 with just a 'few' of the files from DEBUG firmware.

  • vsh.self
  • index.dat
  • version.txt


In conclusion, those without an Infectus Mod who do not wish to risk their JailBroken PS3 console and lose the ability to run PlayStation 3 back-ups and homebrew should avoid this PS3 CFW at the present time... whether further progress will change this or not only time will tell.

Seems kinda sketchy TBH. But for those willing to give it a shot here are the new updated links (I'm quoting directly from thetechgame.com/Forums/t=1850074/366-jailbreak-update.html):

I have edited the JB file, and succesfully added install package files, although you need to be on 3.55 or below to download this one, and i can not test it as i do not have a firmware 3.55 or lower, so please guy's try this

This is the JB for users on 3.56+ This JB does not have "Install package files" or "apphome" Expect to see a release including that stuff for 3.56+ in the near future

By downloading these files you agree to the following:

1. I am in no way held responsilbe for your PS3 bricking, or being disabled in anyway
2. I am in no way responsible for you getting banned or in trouble with the law (lol won't happen)

I will keep you guys updated on the fully functioning JailBreaks, and remember +REP

P.S. I'm not responsible for anything you do, neither is NUIKERD (the maker of this CFW) as mentioned. Install at your own risk!

I'm not going to start another thread, but it appears this is being recycled today on several sites (nextgenupdate.com/forums/showthread.php?t=435698#post3578355) as a 3.66 JailBreak via NUIKERD: thetechgame.com/Forums/t=1850074/366-jailbreak-news.html

Below is a video and the details if anyone wants them: Download: [Register or Login to view links]

ok guys, the person who originally got it working, even when he puts the coding for install package files and what not he gets data corrupted, thats because they patched that in 3.56+ so, he will release the one with install package files im sure, but the thing is, it wont work unless your on 3.55 or below. so even when he does release it, ill release it here, but dont try it until its verified working by multiple people and theres a video showing proof, but that doesnt mean that 3.66 jailbreaks cant be done, we already changed the pup build, so now we just need someone smart enough to be able to add install package files without getting data corrupted, and im sure someone will do it

The one with install package files should be released between today and thursday (probebly tommorow though)

ok, the guy/people/girl is working on putting the coding for install package files, and no file manager from the pervious jb will not work, cause if it does not have the coding for install package files, then it can cleary not be able to run homebew yet ... i will post the new link once the guy is done it might be today, it might not and for thos of you who arent being and actually trying it before saying its fake, thanks you guys will deffinatly be getting the new one later, and as for the rest of you.... off

i dont take credit for the release, this is a modified CFW 3.66 firmware, although it does not include install package files Sad so in other words, its useless lol, but the guy/team/girl will be releasing the JB with install package files soon, so i hope.

guys ill keep you updated

once again, i do not take credit for this, i will post a link to the persons youtube channel tommorow when the jailbreak that has install package files is released

In the proof i shut down the video at 8% of installing cause i dont want to stand there holding the camera, if u think its fake just cause i stopped at 8%.. well then thats to bad for u i guess

I'd guess the reason that it only installs on 3.55 (or earlier?) is down to the fact that it's been rebuilt and re-packed with known 3.55 keys. So no 3.56 or above keys are needed (and probably not known at the moment anyway).

Is it therefore already possible to unpack ANY pup using the 3.55 keys at the moment? In case an OFW user is still on that firmware before updating to any future version?

If so, it should be possible to alter all future firmware in this way and even remove/alter the parts of it that stop the 3.55 keys from being usable? Or am I missing something?
