PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 3.74 and 4.00 Updates Surface


118w ago - For those who own PS3 Debug / Test consoles or are simply into collecting PlayStation 3 file leaks, recently PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 3.74 surfaced alongside version 4.00 from Sony's North American Press Web site.

Download: PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 3.74 / PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 4.00

If you didn't know, the address to their Press site is http://PressCenter.PlayStation.com/ and Sony offers free access to all members of the press there using SCEA / SC3APR to login and obtain the latest press releases and related files.

Finally, keep in mind these PUP updates will currently NOT install on a retail PS3, and so they are intended for examination and comparison purposes only.

We have 100% confirmed that running this updater on a retail PS3 will not damage it, however, it will give the following error before the installation completes: The data type is not supported. (8002F029)

Special Thanks to ConsoleDev for the heads-up on the news tip!

Two fold - for this to run, there are certain flags inside the system that can't be changed without Sony's keys. Furthermore, any JB'd system now can access more things than on a debug box.

i am by no means a programmer or developer of any kind, but would someone be kind enough to try to explain why this wouldn't lead to CFW for retail consoles?

many thanks

Usually from people on the inside at Sony or from their Press FTP servers, but nah this won't lead to a new PS3 CFW for Retail consoles.
