E3 Team to Release PS3 CFW v4.30 Free Soon with Game Manager


Sponsored Links
104w ago - Today the E3 Team announced they (and likely several other teams) will be releasing a PS3 CFW v4.30 for 'free' soon (since the PS3 LV0 / Bootldr / Appldr Keys etc are in the wild) with their own Game Manager as well.

To quote (via consolecrunch.com/lv0-4-25-lv2-4-25-and-lv0-4-30-dumped-decrypted/) are: Ok guys let's take a big step there is the lv0 4.25 decrypted (elf) you should able to find the keys for the lv2/lv1/appldr

Boot Loader SE Version 4.2.5 (Build ID: 4859,49406, .Build Date: 2012-09-10_13:48 :01)..SDK Version

And here's some cool info:

  • The people WHO don't have the E3 don't install the cfw 4.30 it lock you to 4.30 and you can go back to older firmware without e3
  • The E3 team patch the Lv0 of the 4.30 and i saw no really good things about it... careful seriously
  • Ok let's give more stuff after the Lv0 4.25 decrypted, the LV2 dump 4.21, here the LV0 4.30 decrypted too
  • Again i recommend to not install the E3 4.30 firmware they lock you and they patched the LV0 badly that to force you to use the E3 product in the future

Additional Information: The files are said to contain..

Update: From their page: 2012-10-28

The E3TEAM has released the latest E3 CFW4.30 for free. The bricking issue has been improved. Just download [Register or Login to view links] ([Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]) and enjoy. (Pass is [Register or Login to view links])

Here we mention to E3 flasher users that you do not need to solder a wire to use the latest upgrade.bin file to unbrick a console.

Notes:

  • You still need to be on CFW v3.55 or OFW v3.55 to install this new CFW v4.30 from the E3 Team.
  • It is best if downgrading to follow the normal steps and dehashing like with Rogero just to be sure of no bricks.
  • E3 will be releasing an upgraded E3 Flasher 'update.bin' (firmware) to handle direct downgrading to CFW v4.30. (Beware: Their hardware required, just one of many strings now disclosed)

From their page (now removed as they claim they weren't ready yet ): 2012-10-26

1: E3TEAM released the latest E3 CFW4.30 free, it's improved the brick problem. We will release the new game manager if none brick matter happen. Just download [Register or Login to view links] (dead link now) and enjoy. (PASS is [Register or Login to view links])

Here we mention E3 flasher user that you needn't solder wire with latest upgrade.bin file to unbrick console.














From IRC comes some common sense: [+impacted] wow, one step solution for e3, release a cfw, brick a few consoles, sell a few flashers

Not sure why anyone would want to use a for-profit commercial company's free "bait" (with undisclosed strings attached) PS3 CFW and Game Manager (likely 'locked' to their CFW) over a truly free and open-source PS3 scene one though, as they could pwn, brick and lock your PlayStation 3 console at any time and you would be at their financial mercy to get it fixed, updated, etc similar to how people didn't fall for the recent BlueDisk CFW scheme.

If they truly wanted to help the PlayStation 3 scene they would simply release updated PS3 MFW scripts so people could make their own PS3 4.30 Custom Firmware without the need to worry about hidden DRM bundled in or downloading 170+MB files.

I actually had this question recently myself as I too was getting ready to buy one. The answer I got with a helpful tutorial from playerkp420 was no using the noFSM Method.

That what I was told to do and it worked great. Downgraded 2 PS3's that way:

noFSM METHOD - No FSM dongle needed, and will not format your HDD

1. After making your backups continue here and leave your PS3 on. There is no need to reboot. If you patched your dump with the validation guide in Chapter 1, you can skip to step 8.
2. Download PS3 Flash Tool v4.55.rar ([Register or Login to view links]) if your PS3 is on OFW 4.55. Or download PS3 Flash Tool v4.60.rar ([Register or Login to view links]) if your PS3 is on OFW 4.60. Using the one for your firmware version, will allow your PS3 to boot to the XMB. You can still use either if on a lower OFW, but will boot to a recovery screen instead. Where you can install the CFW from there. So doesn't really matter what version you use.
3. Extract to Desktop or where ever you like.
4. Put your bkpps3.bin in the PS3 Flash Tool folder.
5. Drag and drop the bkpps3.bin onto ps3_dump_tool.exe
6. The program will open, validate (Hopefully you already validated above. But at least this may tell you if you missed something.), and ask if you want to patch it. Say yes and wait for it to apply the patches.
7. Now there will be a new file named bkpps3_NOR_patched.bin.
8. Delete all files from your sd card and put the bkpps3_NOR_patched.bin on it, renamed to bkpps3.bin
9. Put the sd card in the flasher.
10. Put all switches down on flasher. And press the red reset button under the esata plug on the faceplate.
11. Press start on flasher, and wait for blue leds to light up 1 by 1. When done lights will alternate flash. [You will need the blu ray drive and the HDD, attached for the next steps. So if you are going to remove the flasher, now would be the time to do so. Rebuild and change the thermal compound, with Artic Silver 5.]
12. Reboot PS3 from XMB or simply turn it on.
13. On boot you should see "please connect controller screen" (If your PS3 is on OFW 4.55 and you patched to 4.55, or on 4.60 and patched to 4.60 you will boot to the XMB. You can Install 4.55 CFW or later of your choice [for easier changing CFWs later on, I strongly suggest using the 3.55_Rogero_Dowgrader_RSOD.PUP ([Register or Login to view links]), and finish the rest of the guide] from XMB -> Settings -> System Update)
14. If you were on any other OFW than 4.55 and get the "please connect controller screen" then CONNECT THE CONTROLLER!
15. Put 4.55 CFW or later of your choice [for easier changing CFWs later on, I strongly suggest using the 3.55_Rogero_Dowgrader_RSOD.PUP ([Register or Login to view links]), and finish the rest of the guide] of your choice on your flash drive like this:

[Register or Login to view code]

If you are on OFW 4.55, you have to install 4.55 CFW or a CFW that syscon is changed to a higher version. If you are on OFW 4.55, use 4.55 CFW or higher. I strongly suggest using 3.55_Rogero_Dowgrader_RSOD.PUP ([Register or Login to view links]), then continue with Qa Flag and Installing OFW 3.55. Then update to any CFW. This will make for easier downgrading back to 3.55 or switching CFWs later. Qa Flag can not be enabled on 4.50, 4.53, or 4.55.

WARNING: If Minimum version checker said your PS3 can only go to 3.56, Do not use rogero downgrader. Use this REBUG 4.46.1 REX with syscon changed to 9.99 ([Register or Login to view links]). Then install Rebug toolbox from Package Manager>Install Package Files>PS3 Hard Disk. Open the toolbox and go all the way right, and enable Qa flag.

Then you can install any CFW you want, from the recovery menu or using Condor Updater ([Register or Login to view links]). Then you are done, and would only need to install any homebrew apps you want. First one I would suggest is multiMAN 04.60.00 BASE CEX.pkg] ([Register or Login to view links].

Get either Rogero 4.55 v1.00 from here, or REBUG 4.46.1 LITE or REX CFW, or Habib 4.60 or REBUG 4.53.3U REX COBRA. Always download CFWs from a trusted place and check the md5s of any firmware you are going to install, with this tool: [Register or Login to view links]

16. Insert into the right usb port of the PS3 and follow the on screen instructions, hold start and select. Or install from XMB system update if the PS3 was on OFW 4.55.
17. You will now boot to CFW.
18. If you went straight to 4.50, 4.53, or 4.55 CFW, Install the CFW again from System Update in the XMB. This will fill both ros0 and ros1 in the flash, to the same version. I have experienced some errors, when not installing the CFW 2 times. And is why I suggest using the downgrader pup and continuing with Qa Flag, etc...

I've looked at many youtube videos on how to jailbreak my PS3 and I still don't know how to do it.

I have a PS3 Super Slim that was bought this year (2014), and I do NOT have an E3 Flasher and I do not plan on getting one based on the prices. Does anyone have a good guide/download for me please?

Hello,

i downloaded this iso (thepiratebay.se/torrent/9449794/NES_Emulator_w__ROMs_[Cobra_ODE]_PS3), but i can't put another ROMS in it.

The description isn't very usefull... i extracted the iso, put the roms in the folder but after i rebuilt the iso the E3 manager doesn't detect it on the HDD.

Does any of you know how should i do this?
