PSGRADE Free PS3 Downgrade Hex Released - Master Key Found!

Sponsored Links
217w ago - Since the release of PS3 Firmware v3.55 there is no sense in keeping the master key a secret any more - it has been released, along with unencrypted payloads, and a promise to release the source-code by PS3YES for a free PSGrade PS3 downgrader.

Of note, the downgrade hex will only work on PS3's with a firmware of 3.50 or below.

The same team which brought the PSN spoof for online support of jailbreaks now has also brought us a Free Downgrade HEX for the PS3! PS3YES has released un-encrypted HEX files for downloading.

They promise open-source code to be release soon, but find below pre-compiled HEX files:

PSGRADE AT90USB646-16Mhz Teensy++ 1.0
PSGRADE AT90USB1286-16Mhz Teensy++ 2.0

This is the last line from psgrade_ps3yes.hex

Furthermore: A PS3YES flash update and PS3 Downgrade guide have been posted here and PS3Key flashes have been posted here.

PS3YES has stated, to quote:

"Our downgrade firmware is based on the PSGrade project, we will open the source soon.

Support for the following:

PS3YES AT90USB162 8mhz
PS3YES AT90USB162 16mhz
AT90USBKEY at90usb1287 8mhz
Teensy++ 1.0 at90usb646 16mhz
Teensy++ 2.0 at90usb1286 16mhz

Remember PS3YES were the first to release that PSN Hack that lasted a week on their Chinese forums!

Also sadly v3.55 is out so you can only use this great release to Downgrade v3.50 or LOWER firmwares!

NOTE: Importing the HEX to other devices using current payload converters will NOT work!"

evilsperm, i tested another stick > atmel at90usb1287 16mhz

It works with the release they made for teensy2++ (1286),
but not with your teensy2++. I also compiled with the last fork a real 1287 16mhz, but also not working.

I tried both usb's from my slim.

I hope this can lead to a permanent way to play 3.50 games, but this is definitely a step in the right direction.
