Sponsored Links
109w 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 think) it was 5.00 m33 and it took me awhile to find that firmware online still but be careful because i read that it might mess up your psp but i had no problem with it at all and the tut for the jig app is this right here: [Register or Login to view links]

Hi! Do you know exactly which CFW you had on the PSP? I spent hours the other day repeatedly testing the original and Nabnab-modified versions of PS3Jig without success from my "fat" PSP.

I don't remember the exact CFW on the PSP at 6.60, but at 5.50 I used GEN-D3. After I tried everything on the fat PSP, I tried on a slim 2000-series unit without any luck either. I tried different USB cables in combination with everything and still nothing happened.

I just found an older service mode BIN for the E3 card reader and tried that, but the E3 still won't turn blue in the PS3.

well i had the same problem with the 5 double beeps brick on my slim ps3 when i changed it back to a CEX machine *no pun intended lol jk* from a DEX machine and i used a first gen psp that i downgraded to the right firmware for the app to work right and i just used the ps3jig app and it got it into service mode and i fixed that brick by myself and that scared the crap out of me when i bricked it >.<

it took me like two weeks just to figure that out i tried using the ps3jig app on other versions of my psp but it said that it was waiting for the ps3 to be connected and just hanged there forever

I'm following [Register or Login to view links] for the 5 double beep brick but my E3 card reader won't turn blue when I power up the PS3 and I can't get it into service mode.

The E3 should turn orange, then blue and a few seconds later the PS3 should shut down. Instead, the E3 turns orange, then turns off, and a minute or two later the PS3 eventually shuts down. Someone else with the same problem made a video showing the problem:





The E3 card reader turns blue when I drag e3downgrade 12.03.bin to the upgrader part of it, so it seems to be flashing okay. In addition to using the E3 device, I tried a couple of PSPs running PS3Jig and those both hung on the driver started message.

Anybody have any idea why the E3 card reader won't work properly in the PS3? It's a CECHA01 if that makes any difference.

Rough translation: About:

1) 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 themselves 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 of PS3 games. Users can play games 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 2.0 BETA 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.

Update #3: 2014-03-27

The latest E3 ODE PRO Keys updates, support more games as a boot disc. E3TEAM has been hard at work on a better way to bypass the 4K 4.55 certification, please wait patiently.

Download: keys.zip

From Joonie86: It seems that if you make this homebrew with any fixed pkg in ISO format, I assume this will work on any ODEs. Unfortunately, I can't make SWAP disc for my 4k /OFW 4.55 at the moment, I can't test this.

Wondering if anybody wants to confirm this. If this this working, pkg install will be a lot easier than using IDC, multiman or other file manager.
