From their Twitter: "If you've had issues with Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD, download the optional PS3 software update (v.4.31)"

From afiser on the PS3 Keys posted above: This is as simple as putting the bootldr keys (what you all call the lv0 keys released last week) in the scetool data/keys file and running scetool.exe -d lv0 lv0.elf

From zadow28: Found some interesting, when debugging lv1.elf from 4.31:

Only shows when debugging.. well thats where i'm at so far regards.

Dumps/Debug off core_os/Devflash files. 4.++

Have done some experimenting. Found out that you can actuelly run the self/sprx (ppc)

From core_os, and Devflash.. from "official" debugger,and dump them. You have to set up an fake Param.sfo, so the debugger thinks its an executable.. but the result is quite amazing. You really get an better overview, since you can see al the files it communicates with.

I use Ida pro 64 PPC proccesser to analyze, the dump. Then use Kakarotos scrips analyze_sprx.idc. Set new TOC, when the script tell you and reanalyze.

The dump is 4mb packed but 250 mb unpacked. I'll give an more deeper, TUT when i have the time. Works on all files so far i tested PPC ones, so all expect the spu files. Tested vsh.self/mcore.self/psp_emu.self plus many more.

Well here is the dump, for BDVD.SELF: http://rghost.net/41639087

Off course you can debug all the files, and the embedded spu before dumping.

Finally, from Team Siracide comes PS3 DEV_Flash 4.31 with details below, as follows:

Hi everyone i'm new member here but have been using ps3 jailbreak right from start. FYI: just want to let you guys know that on 4.31 update you cannot use multiman and you dont get the option to play back up games. I installed it on my ps3 and get an error when playing back up games.. As it was said it was just a minor update!! its not a minor update..

Any help would be much appreciated Thanks

Something that I really liked in my ps3, was the ability to play music in the background while browsing through the XMB. Did they put it back or it's gone for good?

Hope that they patched also the Trophies screen. Hate it how it works now. My 40+ games library is loaded every time and in the mean time you cannot close the XMB overlay. Very very stupid.

Given Sony's track record, the first thing that comes to mind is that it could be possible it's a two step rocket in patching some vulnerability. Just saying, I wouldn't expect them to just idly stand by regarding recent events.

I really don't think Sony will keep making new OFWs just to block CFW PSN access, this cat and mouse game will piss of OFW users too.
