21w ago - Nearly two months after the previous update, today I have posted a guide and video on how to downgrade a PS3 4.31 OFW console (including CECH-300x slims) to 4.30 Rogero v2.03 CFW using a PS3 Hardware Flasher with no 3.55 needed.
Very easy tutorial. Follow the steps to downgrade a PS3, but when you get to the first step of the USB downgrading part after putting your PS3 into service mode, use Rogero 4.30 CFW v2.03 on the root of the USB with the lv2diag.self to downgrade instead of the 3.55.
So again, no 3.55 ever touches the PS3 during this whole setup! Doing this will also now allow CECH-300x models original slims to be downgraded to 4.30 CFW as long as it never touches 3.55
The whole reason for this was to find out if the E3 fits a CECH-400xx model super slim models, but all I needed was proof that you can downgrade from 4.31 to 4.30 CFW with a flasher.
So if any one out there has an E3 and a new super slim model please test this if it works! You can make back ups of the NOR incase it fails.
22w ago - Following up on their previous PS3 DEX update, Italian PlayStation 3 developer Rancid (o) of PS3ITA has made available Install Fake BDEmu PKG alongside a usage guide below on how to create and emulate Dummy BDEmu for those using a PS3 DEX CFW console with a broken BD player.
The Dummy BDEmu occupies only 2MB on your USB device, then after you can partition the remaining space as you want.
To quote, roughly translated: How to Create and Emulate Dummy_BDEmu Your BD Player Broke on CFW DEX Tutorial
In this tutorial PS3ITA will guide you with all the necessary steps to achieve the "dummy_bdemu" directly from the console. This procedure is useful to all users who use a CFW DEX (debug / test) on a console that has the blu-ray disc broken or simply for those who do not want to wear the player's lens for intensive use.
In fact, the "dummy_bdemu" is to appear on the XMB icon BD player despite the absence of the disc, increasing, therefore, the compatibility of...
28w ago - Atlus Lead Editor Mike Meeker has posted up a beginner's guide to Persona 4: Golden today, which is due out next week in stores and on PSN.
Below are the details, as follows: Greetings, readers and ATLUS fans!
I'm aware that some PlayStation RPG fans still haven't heard of Persona 4 Golden, the latest in ATLUS' best-selling Persona series, which hits North American store shelves and PlayStation Network on November 20th.
So what is Persona? Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 is Metacritic's PlayStation 2 Game of the Year for 2008. Persona 4 places you in the shoes of a high school student who needs to strike a balance between school, a social life, learning more about his family, and, as it happens, investigating a series of gruesome murders that may or may not involve a psychedelic world that lies behind the screen of every television in town. Whether beating up Shadows or tackling schoolwork, the choices you make will come to affect how others see you, and how you see yourself.
In both Persona 4 and Persona 4 Golden, you play as transfer student (insert name here) who moves to the sleepy country burg of Inaba. When you arrive, things quickly take a turn for the weird when you learn of a series of murders taking place in the town. You decide to...
