    Default HFW 4.85 Flash Writer released allowing CFWs to be flashed on compatible PS3 models

    A little over two weeks ago, Sony released FW 4.85 out of the blue with the usual changelog of ‘This system software update improves system performance’ leading many to believe that the vulnerabilities/exploits that allow for the installation of HFW and PS3HEN had been patched. However, this turned out not to be the case and ever since then, tools and CFWs have been slowly getting updated with PS3HEN being updated a mere two days after OFW 4.85 landed and popular tools like IRISMAN, ManaGunZ and SEN Enabler also seeing updates.
    Now, PS3 NAND/NOR Flasher version 2.0.2 has been released with support for HFW 4.85 meaning that CFW-compatible PS3 consoles (minver of FW 3.56 or lower) running firmware 4.85 can now have a CFW installed on them after HFW 4.85.1 is installed. The updated flasher and hex file are currently available on ps3xploit.com (access it from the toolbar at the top on your PS3) and PSX-Place threads about it will be updated soon to reflect the release. However, you can follow this guide which is for version 2.0.1 as the steps for basic usage are still the same.
    The PS3 NAND/NOR Flasher deals with low-level things so if used incorrectly, it can lead to a brick. As a result, make sure you use it on HFW 4.85.1 and be 100% certain that the MD5 of ‘flash_485.hex’ is “2D74B066E7453E6B1336E36C410FB1EB” (without quotes)

    The CFW 4.85 Flash writer is now available for download to PS3s with compatible hardware. This new release includes a number of bug fixes and additional features, not the least of which is the ability to flash CFW on PS3 consoles with compatible hardware.
    Playstation 3 is no longer seen as a viable gaming platform by Sony, but it still has a great deal of life left in it for use as an HTPC or multimedia device.
    The 4.85 release also includes enhanced USB mass storage functionality, added support for the Japanese locale on Linux, and several other minor features that are sure to please existing users.
