49w ago - Atlus Editor Nich Maragos has invited fans to download Demon's Souls for PlayStation 3 on PSN this coming Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: A lot of unusual things go on here at ATLUS, and as a publisher known for delivering great JRPG content, Demon's Souls represented something unique even for us: runaway mainstream success.
In the years since its release, Demon's Souls went far above and beyond our usual humble offerings, partly because it's such a special game. It's a Japanese-developed RPG, made by From Software, but it has a distinctly Western look and feel in the weight of its movements and the ruthlessness of its enemies and environments.
It's a single-player title, but it has a strong online component unlike anything that came before it, where you can summon other players as friendly ghosts to give you a hand, or be invaded by hostile marauders without warning.
Its unsparing difficulty seemed to mark it as destined to be appreciated only by a select few, yet it's been universally lauded (and awarded Game of the Year by a few, including GameSpot) and remains our highest-selling title ever.
As a thank you to the fans who have supported it this far and kept the servers burning, we're excited to announce that Demon's Souls will...
50w 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.
Here is a Christmas present from French Developers Team SGK, to quote roughly translated: Hi everyone, the Noel father went through my message box after this afternoon and guess what there was when I logged?
Yep, A beautiful CFW 4.31 v4 TeamSGK brand new only asking that to be download and installed, DO NOT FORGET back through the 3.55, so it is with pleasure and I present you below... MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OUR MEMBERS: here's a video for you to feast before downloading.
Here are the main novelty of our new ultra-functional and CFW perfomants:

52w ago - Following up on RenPKG and RAP2RIF, PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Eslab has now made available RIF2RAP which no longer requires users to downgrade their PS3 console to 3.55 to export the RAP files.
With this application, it is now possible to convert RIF files on the PlayStation 3 console to RAP files.
From mikufans: Hello, recently my friend released a tool: rif2rap. It does help those who want to share the rap. And there is no need to downgrade the PS3 concole to 3.55 to export the rap. Just run this rif2rap.exe, and get the rap.
Tested OK by some of my friends. The Tutorial is so easy that no need to explain here.
