Sponsored Links
96w 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.

so i know how to dump patch reflash but i'm not much aware on the FSM method but want to learn incase ever needed can some be able to explain which e3_downgrade.bin to use with md5 as i have 2 ov them 1 is a dated version 12.03 and the other is a bd fix i think?

Also why is this necessary and do you patch the bkpos3 to 3.55 in order for this process. Any clarification on this would be great.

Below is another update on the E3 Manager for E3 ODE Pro which will be released soon.

The E3 Team shared a short Video they produced showing off the fact the E3 Manager is coming. Basically it looks like they figured out how to copy the way Cobra ODE v1.6 works, which I heard in the grapevine that 3k3y team is also looking at offering the same type of 'ISO Management' options as Cobra originally started:

No reboot of the PS3 as the video shows E3 Pro. The installation, however, requires an adapter QSB soldering on the motherboard of the PS3 Slim 2k5, 3k and 4k.

yep your nor clip is loose and I use a couple of pennies as i am in England PMSL, but seriously this is the most common problem with the E3 Flasher, the amount of times I have had to take the board apart to make sure the clip is installed properly, especially as the dyn-001 boards I seem to always flash have small resistors either side of the Nor !

Once you have solved this problem, that is the main thing you EVER seem to face, oh cept putting the sd card in properly as its a right pain in the rear. Good Luck Buddy,

thx bro i soldered it but it wont power up is it a motherboard issue ?
Its suppose to all light up at once. And when it disappears it means the update was taken. As for the sequence of blinking lights, it's because your nor clip is loose. Tape a couple nickels on the back to keep it tight with the board.
