57w ago - Following up on the PS3 Factory 3.56 with Flasher news, French PlayStation 3 developer raymanvtwo has shared a way to install Rebug PS3 CFW 4.21.1 on any version PS3, however, it requires a PS3 Hardware Flasher, will format your HDD and may result in a permanently bricked console so be WARNED!
Below is a rough translation of the process, as follows: You will need just a flash, great care, attention and rigor.
This method will format the hard drive of your PS3, make sure to recover your important data. Also, you incur a risk of irreversible brick in case of bad handling. Neither I nor PS3-Addict can not be held responsible. If you are not able to follow this tutorial to the letter, thank you spend your way!
Firstly, ensure the validity of your dump, flow rebuilder is the best in the field. Also check that all your fichiez is a different size of 0 bytes (including bootloader_0). If there is a problem, it will help you out.
Now that you have your dump, to see if the offset 200 if you or IFI FI.I with HxD as hexadecimal editor. If you IFI,...
58w ago - Following up on their previous release and the Rebug 4.11 Version Spoofer, today PlayStation 3 hackers Cyberskunk and evilsperm of Team Rebug have released Rebug 3.55.3 and 4.21.1 PS3 CFW REX Editions alongside a PS3 '999' downgrader with details below!
To quote: Here is a patched Rebug 0.7 Update Package to enable PSN and v4.25 spoofing on Rebug 3.55.2 Firmware. You must already be using Rebug FW 3.55.2 to use this. If you have already installed Rebug's Official Update 0.7 before, you can still install this. This package relies on you using Rebug's own CEX / DEX Selector to change between 3.55 and 4.25 (PSN access).
I have used all original Rebug files and patched them manually. The 'version.txt' was pulled from the original 4.25 pup. Selfs and 'index.dat' were rebuilt using fail0verflow tools. 'vsh.self.swp' and 'vsh.self.cexsp' are correctly patched to enable PSN access, 4.25 spoofing and switching between Debug and Retail XMB modes without causing RSOD. There are basically 3 modes:
Mode: Normal XMB: Debug = no spoofing (3.55), no PSN access, has 'Debug' options in 'Settings'.
Mode: Rebug XMB: Debug = Spoofed (4.25), PSN enabled, has 'Debug' options in 'Settings'.
80w ago - Today Sony PlayStation 3 hackers Cyberskunk and evilsperm of Team Rebug have released a PS3 4.11 Version Spoofer 2.2 for 3.55 CFW and also a Rebug Update Package 0.7 (3.55.2) which temporarily restores PSN access once again on Custom Firmware!
While this is great news for the time being to play 3.55 titles (3.56+ won't work) online, Sony will likely release a PlayStation 3 Firmware update to block the new method being used in coming days in order to resecure PlayStation Network with an updated PSN Auth X-Platform-Passphrase (which resides in a decrypted VSH.SELF) and prevent PS3 Custom Firmware users from gaining access unfortunately.
If you are unsure if a PlayStation 3 game or patch update will work on PSN via PS3 CFW, simply extract the PARAM.SFO from the PKG and view it using a PS3 PARAM.SFO Editor to examine the PS3_SYSTEM_VER value. If it is 03.5500 or below the game will work online and the patch update can be installed.
