For those curious, the PS3 QA Flag Extra (Advanced) has a few other flags / tokens set but it's not for general use.

Requirements:

What we have tested on so far:

  • 3.55
  • 3.41

Instructions:

Set QA Flag to Standard:

  • Run qa_flag.pkg if you hear a beep, it worked. If not dump your debug messages via udp_printf on linux and send to us to fix.
  • Reboot the ps3
  • Go to network settings (Do not enter it) and hit or hold
  • L1+L2+L3+R1+R2+down on the dpad
  • QA auto flagging is now done.

Reset QA Flag to Default:

  • Run reset_qa_flag.pkg
  • If you hear a beep it worked. If not dump your debug messages via udp_printf_client in linux and send it to us.
  • Reboot the ps3
  • QA Flag is now set to default (Off) Your PS3 is now normal again.

Git Repository:

git://git.gitbrew.org/ps3/otheros-utils/qa_flag.git
git://git.gitbrew.org/ps3/otheros-utils/reset_qa_flag.git
git://git.gitbrew.org/ps3/otheros-utils/get_token_seed.git

PS3 Downgrade:

Tools Needed:

  • CFW355-OTHEROS++-SPECIAL.PUP
  • qa_flag_extra.pkg
  • Firmware you want to downgrade to (3.41, 3.15).

Notes: These tools WILL format your PS3. Any and ALL PSN / downloaded data will be erased! The lowest firmware you can go to is what was originally on your PS3 originally!

If your ps3 came with 3.41 then that's the lowest it can go. If it came with 3.15 again thats as low as it can officially go! be warned if you go lower, you WILL brick!

Installation Process:

1. Install CFW355-OTHEROS++-SPECIAL.pup (Doesn't matter what version you are 3.41, 3.50 etc etc)
2. Install qa_flag_extra.pkg
3. Run qa_flag (It will show up as this, that is fine)
4. If you hear the beeps, continue. If you don't hear the beeps go to step 10
5. Reboot
6. Go into recovery menu and Update your ps3 with the firmware that you want (3.15, 3.41 etc)
7. Have it install and now you're done. You just successfully downgraded your PS3.

They have also stated via [Register or Login to view links] that they are working on a 3.56+ PS3 Firmware exploit, to quote:

Currently our main developers are working on 3.55 and below, I am working on a exploit for 3.56+ however. Anything key related and 3.56+ is currently not going to be answered. News will be released as we figure it out, If it works we will say so. It's still going to be rough to do anything though. We might save it for the new 3000 series of the ps3 though.

Finally, in related news [Register or Login to view links] has made available what he calls [Register or Login to view links] based on PS3MFW Builder which features the following:

  • Other+OS Support
  • Q&A Flag Support
  • Custom Boot Logo
  • Custom Theme
  • 3.66 Spoofed
  • LV1 & LV2 Patched
  • Run Unsigned PKG's & More

Shortly following, he made available [Register or Login to view links] via MFW Builder. Simply put it in the root of your PS3 storage device as follows : PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP

It is just funny. I just remember the one thing my grand dad said to me. Money makes the world go around. Meaning if there is money to be made people will release things. Just sit and wait to see what happens. All that I know is that no one would be where we are now if someone didn't take risk and release something.

i wonder what happened to the gitbrew guys. oh well.. looks like there may not be 370cfw anytime soon.
The way the devs are in the ps3 scene I doubt we will ever see anything above 3.55 cfw.

They keep everything to themselves so I doubt we'll ever see any new CFW unless duplex release something as it looks like they are the only ones keeping the ps3 scene alive.

Deank has gone and so have just about all the other devs that were keeping it alive. when Duplex go thats it, ps3 scene dead.

It sounds kinda bitter, like someone leaked their stuff and they're just crossing their arms over it.

No one knows what he meant. Maybe he put the exploits on a USB, taped it to a bird and let go of it.

Here is another announcement: [Register or Login to view links]

So it looks like we're not going to have a new CFW from Gitbrew any time soon (If at all).
