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..

PS3 4.30 VSH.self Decrypted (from above) by PatrickBatman details, as follows:

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.

The E3 ODE OS 2.0 latest firmware update is released. The release includes bypass of the security measures introduced in the infamous ode-blocking 4.55 ofw from Sony. The bypass has a catch which is to create a Blu-ray boot disc for the games on the external hdd.

This means you must own or know someone who owns a Blu-ray disc writer which can be a real pain for some, but this is a measure for 4k ps3's only. A new feature implemented is the ability to boot games in folder format instead of iso which is a big plus.

Remember that for this you will need a original eboot or a resigned one. They will release a one-click resign software soon. Also in the next firmware they will release a pkg installer.

To quote, roughly translated: 2014-02-16

Download: E3 OS 2.0 official version / E3 OS 2.0 manual for 4k 4.55 user

We are pleased to announce the long-awaited E3 OS 2.0 released. All users upgrade to E3 OS 2.0 will have the following functions:

1. The official version of 4K 4.55 solution. A special E3 boot disc to support user's original boot disc and all PS3 games in its HDD.The users can burn the BD E3 boot disc by themself or give the generated ISO file to other guy to burn. (The supported original boot disc is listed in the keys file, this content can be added)

Please note: this function is only useful for 4K 4.55 user, other E3 OS 2.0 user play
game is same as before, no need E3 boot disc.

2. Support folder format PS3 games. User can play game without converting into ISO game on PC (EBOOT need original or re-signed).

3. Modified EBOOT can be run with E3 ODE PRO after re-signed in folder format game, just copy the eboot to the right directory to run. (E3TEAM will release a specially one-key re-sign software later)

E3TEAM is working hard to update one key installation PKG file feature, due to the delay of fixing 4K 4.55. It will be released in E3 OS 2.1 after testing well.

E3TEAM will provide solutions without the need of external USB drive to play PS3 game, so stay tuned!

Meanwhile, because of commercial confidentiality, E3TEAM's exclusive release of new features for how to achieve the way will be reserved. In the 4K 4.55 solution as an example, E3TEAM find the solution in 3 days after 4.55 released, and then release the testing video.

Since the method of switching boot disc is commercial secrets, so we have reservations in the video. Facts have proved that after E3TEAM released E3 OS 2.0BETA version, other teams are starting to follow E3TEAM solution. For this reason, if the user causes misunderstanding, E3TEAM can only feel sorry.

But in the future we will continue to use the functions reserved demo mode, please understand! E3TEAM will do our best to provide the best user experience. All issues of interest to
the user, E3TEAM is trying to solve, and will be reflected in future product updates.

Here is a google translation: In order to meet the urgent needs of some E3 users, E3TEAM suspend other work, expedited launched E3 OS 2.0BETA version, only 4K 4.55 user testing. Other users please be patient E3 E3 OS 2.0 official version launch. Meanwhile, due to the 4K 4.55 delay progress in the development of new features, E3TEAM expressed extreme regret.

Is it possible to dump and modify the NOR with Super Slim 4xxx series? I have a E3 NOR flasher and was wondering if it is possible to install Habib 4.53 CFW or any other CFRW on it if I modify the NOR flash first.

I have used E3 flasher to install CFW on OFW ps3 before.
