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.

Hi guys, my first post here

PS3 FAT 40 GB
CECHJ04 (NOR)
Motherboard: DIA-002
If you need more data let me know

Well, I did the update and it went well then I was about making the first dump and I got 10001100 in the blue lights. I opened my Ps3 again to adjust the NOR clip with some pression and I even filled a bit the sides of the clip.

I'm turning the Ps3 on and the ventilator starts going insanely fast and immediately I hear 3 "PI"s and a red light flashing (when I turn on the console it gets to reach the photosensitive epilepsy warning).

Now, it happens everytime I turn on the console. I though it could just be overheating but it's too coincidental... I don't know . What should I do?, sold instead of using NOR clip?, sold only SBE nor trisate?

Greetings!

I'm new to the whole playstation modding scene. I just downgraded my PS3 to 3.55, and now I'm just completely confused. I've been reading through info on custom firmwares and modded firmwares for a few days and it's only served to leave me even more confused.

Firstly let me explain my setup as it is, and then explain my goals.

CURRENT
Mod: E3 Dual-Boot Mod
PS3 Firmware: 3.55 OFW
E3 NOR Firmware: 3.55 OFW
PS3 HDD: 160GB
E3 HDD: 2TB

GOAL
Mod: E3 Dual-Boot Mod
PS3 Firmware: X.XX O/C/MFW (Access to PSN)
E3 NOR Firmware: X.XX C/MFW (whichever suits my intent better)
PS3 HDD: PSN Downloaded Games
E3 HDD: Copy all my disc Games. Plus some kind of video player that supports subtitles and Samba (Windows File Sharing- PS3's media server options are very disappointing)

Question 1: What's the best CFW or MFW to flash to the E3 given my intent
Question 2: Once a C/MFW is Flashed what's the next step towards my goal
Question 3: I intend only to use the PS3 flashed Firmware to go online is there a safe custom or modified firmware capable of this or will i have to move to the latest OFW
Question 4: Best Backup Manager to use (given that all backups will be run from the E3 Firmware Harddrive)
Question 5: Is Showtime the only Media Center option?

thanks in advance!
