Video: PS3 Slim Retail Console Running 3.66 Custom Firmware


Sponsored Links
180w 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:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror #2)

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

ALL OTHER FILES ARE RETAIL INCLUDING COREOS."

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.

Hey! I have recently updated from CFW 3.55 to 3.66 OFW, but since I saw this, I have tried to update to this firmware... The only problem is when I put this firmware, CFW 3.66, I get the error: "Data is corrupted". Have tried thousands of times, any ideas why this is occurring? Thanks in advance!

Maybe to you it's worthless. But to many people having debug options on 3.66 FW is pretty impressive.

P.S. No one cares if you're on jb 3.55.

The ROUGH TRANSLATION was irking me so if you want to use a better one here it is:

Dospiedras1973, EOL user who just recently downgraded a FAT model using INFECTUS, has published a firmware that allows the PS3 to upgrade to the version 3.66 with debug options.

Some main points by the developer:

Only 3.55 users (either CFW or OFW)
There's no turning back. You'll be going to 3.66 and all that it entails. You may only downgrade with INFECTUS (dospiedras method).
No syscalls/payloads... so no backups, it's a firmware GEOHOT style.
3.55 Homebrew will cease to work.
There is no package installer (for now).
Full PSN access.
Works both on Fat and Slim (as shown on the video), no hardware tricks as some users have suggested in the comments.

You can't use it, It's for 3.55 as stated in the first post.
