PS3 4.00 HFW (Hybrid Firmware) v2 Arrives, Adds Debug XMB Items


Sponsored Links
151w ago - Following up on the previous update of my PS3 4.00 Dev_Flash mod, today I've released version 2 of my PS3 4.00 HFW (Hybrid Firmware).

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

Change Log:

Version 2:

  • Adds "Debug XMB Items" to the XMB Column "PlayStation Network" (contains the Debug items found in this column, originally for DEX)
  • Removes the useless "PlayStation Plus" XMB item from the XMB Column "PlayStation Network"
  • Disables Cinavia DRM on all media except Blue-ray.

Version 1:

  • Adds DeViL303's "XMB File Manager" to the XMB Column "Game"
  • Adds "/app_home/PS3GAME/" to the XMB Column "Game" (has no function at the moment, but is here for completeness)

Installation Instructions are the same as before:

1. Be on a firmware 3.55 or less
2. Install the .pup through the XMB (Make sure you have a working hardware flasher as there is no other way to downgrade)

Remember only retail signed .pkg can be installed with this. Have fun. THIS HFW WILL NOT ALLOW HOMEBREW!

An important message for users upgrading from a QA Flagged console: If this console is updated to my 4.00HFW from a QA Flagged console, it will not be able to access the extra System Settings provided by QA Flagging. However all settings made with the QA Debug Settings will remain, EXCEPT "System Debug Update".

Extra Credits: This HFW uses the "XMB File Manager" by DeViL303 which is a modification of Team Rebug's "Packages Manager".

Do you have to do this everytime you boot up?

just to clarify. i don't actually have a kiosk console my method works on a retail CECH-2503B slim. it seems you can you dual boot between kiosk 4.00 and 4.00OFW by swapping drives, probably best to swap drives back before attempting to downgrade back to 3.55..

No not really cause the BIOS files of 3.55 do not work with the VSH.SELF of 4.0. Diff keys !!!

And if you mean to mix up retail 4.0 files with debug 4.0 files this also don't lead into debug mode.

so if get debug fimware 4.00 extract dev_flash swap a few files we should be good? yeah.

quick note: if you want to play games online you need to download and install the update via install package files cause kiosk doesn't download game updates. i just use charles to hijack the links and download them from a second ps3. or you could boot the game and download them on 3.55 before you copy dev_flash and update to 4.00
