once installed turn the console off again and swap hard drives back and you should boot into a modified 4.00 kiosk firmware.
NOTE: This only allows installation of retail signed packages and is not modified to run unsigned code..
To Unlock the XMB: Hold L1+R1+Select+Square simultaneously. When the security settings icon is selected. It will ask for you to input a code (four digit code). Enter 0000 if that doesn't work try 0219. With a video here:
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
Can install retail packages on 4.00 KIOSK firmware, can't mod to run unsigned code yet.. maybe you can?

This is not good, i'm sorry but like Kakaroto told me 'your just telling sony how to patch their firmware without any good reason'
when there finally is a jailbreak we wont have install package options
i'm going to install this just cause he says that you can convert the console back to retail which i wouldn't have thought is possible like he said also i very much doubt that you can install this on 4.11 cause if the new security checks and remember if you update from 3.55 you have no way to downgrade without a nor or nand flasher!
its very good actually. i'm quite surprised how he managed to convert from retail to shop then back to retail on 4.11. going to test it on my unhackable 3000x series console.. wish me luck!
it even works on a unbackable 3000x series console sony will be breaking down your door and taking your ps3's MR. Joey Johnson, shame that homebrew is never going to run on this unless he is a specialist in algebra equations. but well done for hacking sony's latest model!
So this is a kiosk firmware update with retail firmware flags. And the "return FW" is a retail firmware update with kiosk flags. This will only be able to install retail pkgs so that's probably why "no packages install", as all homebrew pkgs are not proper retail pkgs. Nice POC, but I don't think kiosk fw will lead into an exploit.
Ya still useless. Even if it works it'd be pointless to have... unless you didn't get rid of your old applications after you accidentally updated but even then most if not all apps like Multiman and ftps are made for 3.55 cfw. So ya none of the apps would even work on 4.11 whether its a cfw or not.
Unless they were converted somehow for this thing... what ever this is. Is anyone even "trying" to fix the install package issue??
