November 20, 2012 // 12:42 pm - Following up on their SGK Enable / Disable Spoof for PS3 Firmware 4.31, today SGK has released what they call PS3 CFW 4.31.1 which is under development with details on the new PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware below.

Warning: Be aware this PS3 CFW is still under development, and like all PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware should only be installed if you are aware of the risk of possibly bricking your console. Although not a requirement, ideally it should only be attempted if you have a backup of your PS3 NAND / NOR and a hardware flasher available.

To quote, roughly translated: Hi all, What better than to come back with this kind of news!

Our friend and SGK developer releases today the result of hard work. Indeed, in the shadow he worked to bring us a CFW with features interesting and not yet seen the new CFW 4.xx

The basis of this CFW is based on the REX Rebug CFW 4.21 which is the most stable and most successful of the moment. He added the Debug menu and Rebug Package Manager for our greatest pleasure.

Some files from firmware 4.30 which ensures compatibility for the latest keysets. So you can play your backups favorites without a patch or fix. 4.31 is a spoof includes access to PSN and avoid unintended updates.

  • PSN access
  • Debug menu displayed in setting
  • Rebug package added
  • Implementation of parameters Rex 4.21.1 Rebug cfw
  • Lv1 Lv2 and recompiled
  • Patched Peek & Poke
  • Coldboot replaced
  • Coldboot game replaced
  • Theme changed from dynamic watch dogs
  • More corrections ...

It is simple, the vsh.self is exactly the same file that uses the spoof 4.21 available in CFW 4.21 REX. Here how it is known.

100% agree! But for me, and some of us, we almost never played the PS3. My fun is just to hack it.

Hacked my TV (SamyGo)
Hacked my modem ...
Hacked my phone
Hacked the Cell phone i had
Hacked my PS3 ...

AND now try to hack my NAVTEQ

How do we know this for sure?

If you are on OFW 4.31, can you install this CFW? And is it possible to install the OFW 4.31 back if I want the normal version back?

With PSN still working on Rogero 4.30 v2.02 I think I'll stick with what I know works. No point in moving from CFW to CFW when the changes aren't huge.
