November 6, 2012 // 3:44 am - 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, go to the next step. If you FI.I, open flow rebuilder Select "Byte reverse and extract a NOR dump file." and then made your dump "execute operation". If you get an error is that your dump is not good. Before you dump, you must make new bytes reversed under penalty brick your PS3 but it will be easily retrievable.

Now, you need winskeet and patch (here and here or mirrored here). Winskeet open, go to the tab "patch" in "input file", select your dump file and select the patch. Txt file previously downloaded the archive. Made apply and save your dump patched.

Now write your dump patched (do not forget to do it again if you had reversed bytes FI.I at the top). Now your PS3 Decomposition Systems is no longer able to work, do not worry, this is normal. Go to the recovery menu (it may be that your PS3 shuts herself at the first attempt, the second should succeed). Install CFW Rebug 4.21.1 (available via the "system update").

If after several attempts you are unable to install Rebug CFW 4.21.1, format the HDD, then reinstall the switch on the PS3. On a USB drive to FAT32, put the. Rebug 4.21.1 CFW PUP (available here and here) in x: \ PS3 \ update and rename it to PS3UPDAT.PUP. You will get a message asking to connect a controller and press the PS button, then follow the plug your USB drive, make sure there is no disc in the drive BR, then press START and SELECT at the same time for 3s and follow the instructions to install your CFW. Enjoy.

PS: This method has been tested with the Rebug CFW 4.21.1, if you use another CFW, it will be at your own risk. This method has been tested on a PS3 with the metldr "anti CFW 3.55", it should work on any console. Thank you to give me a feedback on the effectiveness of this method and possible problem. Thank you also include PS-addict and I and keep the links given in this tutorial if you publish on your sites this method.

Finally, thank you to the work of the "Three Musketeers" and the Rebug team has allowed me to patch my PS3.

From Cyberskunk: Tested on my 3K series.. DOES NOT WORK (didn't think it would)..

From Rogero: Tested here also on a 3K machine, didn't work, it bricked... metldr .2 and lv0.2 won't be easy to bypass....

looks like you currently in rebug rex .999 downgrade firmware which is identical to rebug 3.55rex but since your minvercheck on ps3 states 3.56 im not entirely sure how you managed it, or how you got to e3 4.30 cfw either. however since rebug .999 downgrade fw is identicle to 3.55rebug rex then i assume you could toggle Qa and install rebug 4.25 rex from xmb.

not sure how this would go, but im not sure how you got on any of the cfws if your min version was 3.56. DO NOT ENTER FSM if your version is stating 3.56 or you could get stuck there permanently.

I'm assuming you used flasher to get on e3 4.30 cfw and if thats the case then you really shouldnt have tried to use the .999 downgrade pup since your ps3 min ver is 3.56

if this is in fact the case, only thing i could think of is toggle Qa and install rebug4.25rex with your fingers crossed lol

God why are you trying so hard...

if this is possible then probably flashing back to OFW 3.55 (or less) just to then go onto a CFW would be a better option...

Gives good feedback on successes to date and failures... seems a bit hit and miss but a 3k KTE001 has had CFW Rebug 4.21 installed and running games isos from Multiman (crisebetes is the dudes name who got it running on the 3k)... seems legit.

For those who have tried... you can expect a dead console for first few tries... formatting the hard drive seems to be key part for update to take.

i'm happy with my ps3 now anyway, all the trouble of switching to dex and reverting to cex wasnt totally pointless. thanks to me now already having the 2 flash files required to get full use out of rebug rex all those that didn't make the dex switch cant use these features untill they go and make those files.

i'm even considering updating my other ps3 to normal ofw just so i can get a psn account and make use of all the freebies on offer.
i still wont connect a cfw ps3 to sony servers , not after seing multiman show up in somones recently played games list.

obviously sony can spot that too.

cause up to firmware 3.55 sony used a constant number to generate their console private keys which meant that we could calcualate them also, this was changed in 3.56 they now use a true random number instead of 4. i learned that from this video:




which is excellent by the way and well worth watching, its one of my youtube favorites

then again, i'm still waiting in the hope someone works out how to resign pups as 4.30 , and so they can just install as though official.

since all the LV0 and other keys are known , i cant understand why if homebrew can be resigned as 4.30 why not a 4.25 pup be patched and then resigned as 4.30, obviously no use to people on ofw 4.30 but would be usefull to anyone on anything lower.

but i'm a noob. lol, just as i asked, technodon already answered, lmao, talk about timing.
