Sponsored Links
89w 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..

Patch vsh.self by youself for new CFW

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 hope you'll let us know if it works for you without a problem, and if you can install *.pkf packages.
I want to see someone make some artwork for the downgrade dog in step 6.

No, it's the clip on version. Which only supports downgrading.

Here is an update from the E3 team: 2011-10-25

Lots of buyer already got e3 flasher limited, most of them install e3 flasher and downgrade well. But few users get problem, here we list and give solution.

1: Backup PS3 bios failed. Generally error code is 10001100. This is e3 flasher not works at all because installation wrong. The main problem is the installation of clip not correct. Here is a video download link, to show how to install CLIP correctly.

2: Some mainboard can't install clip well. Some mainboard like 2004A is diffirence with others. Here is correct installation of clip:

3: Samsung NOR flash can't backup successfully, please wait our update of e3 fw.

4: In step 4, you need remove all usb device.

5: In step 5, when the screen display to prompt you connect usb cable, you need unplug PS3 power cable immediately and don't follow requirement of screen showing.

6: Some user don't know what it is downgrade dog on step 6 in the relegation flow manual. The simple way is get an e3 card reader.

7: After you downgrade to 3.55, you can install any .pkf file , you can upgrade to 3.73 by network or USB DISK . But can't insta ll other 3.55.PUP file.

Also I'm getting my E3 flasher soon, so I'll tell you guys what I think of it in a couple of days.
