  • PS3Xploit CFW 4.82 NOR/NAND flash writer released!

    Sony updated the PS3 to Firmware 4.82 only the other day and already theres a new custom firmware released, awesome stuff by the homebrew hackers for the PS3:

    Team PS3Xploit over at psx-place.com has released software tools for dumping and writing NOR/NAND flash on PS3 consoles with original firmware (OFW) 4.82 based on the previously released webkit exploit! Dumping supports both OFW 4.81 and 4.82. The PS3Xploit development team behind this impressive feat consists of: W (nonoscript, Research & Testing), esc0rtd3w (Debugging, Research & Testing), habib (ROP & Debugging), bguerville (ROP/nonoscript & Debugging). These tools allow dumping, patching and overwriting original firmware (OFW) 4.82 with a custom firmware (CFW). If the QA flag is enabled after installing CFW 4.82 it can also be downgraded to lower CFW version. However, not all PS3 models are supported, here's a brief list of the currently supported ones...

    Dumper: PHAT models supported; H=NOR, J=NOR, K=NOR, L=NOR, M=NOR, P=NOR, Q=NOR. SLIM models supported; 20XX = NOR, 21XX = NOR, 25XX = NOR, 3XXX = NOR, 4XXXB = NOR, 4XXXC = NOR.

    Writer: PHAT models supported; A = NAND, B = NAND, C = NAND, E = NAND, G = NAND, H = NOR, J = NOR, K = NOR, L = NOR, M = NOR, P = NOR, Q = NOR. SLIM models supported; 20XX = NOR, 21XX = NOR, 25XX = NOR (fw 3.56 and lower).

    Warning: Do not use this on 3xxx/4xxx PS3 models (aka Late Slim models / SuperSlim), you will brick those consoles! Also, this is only for PS3 with previously installed OFW 4.82, not CFW.

    There is a chance of bricking your console, just be aware of the risks. For more info check the news post over at psx-place.com. The files can be downloaded here at EurAsia."

      Tested it out on one of my Playstation 3s and it worked just fine. You just gotta read carefully the instructions and you'll be golden. Now let's see how old Sony will respond to this. However, putting this aside, when will we finally see firmware 5.00 arrive? (I hope it won't be just like a bog standard stability update like the last few we had over the past 18 months or so.)
