158w ago - Following up on our previous release, today myself (OverX) and HwapX have made available a Venix Downgrade PS3 4.11 to 3.55 Patch GUI for those interested followed by a translation error fix and update v1.2 and revision 4 below.

Download: Venix Downgrade PS3 4.11 to 3.55 Patch GUI / Venix Downgrade GUI v1.0.0.1 / Venix Downgrade Patch v1.2 for E3 Flasher NOR / Venix Downgrade Patch v1.2 for Progskeet NOR / Venix Downgrade Patch v1.2 for FAT Dual NAND / CFV 2.0 Revision 4 by MRDOTB

Warning: According to the PS3 Dev Wiki (ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Talk:Downgrading_with_Hardware_flasher#Venix_Autopatcher) the Venix Autopatcher / Downgrade tool is known and proven to give false positives on bad dumps that lead to permabricks.

Use this method (ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Validating_flash_dumps): Validating flash dumps to make sure the dumps are in crisp condition. You cannot recover from bad flash without proper dumps (e.g. bricking the console beyond repair).

From eussnl: The only thing this tool tests is size and "oya," nothing else. It blindly copypastes ps3 binary code from inside its EXE inside the file. In best case scenario (if a proper validated dump was used) it creates a patched file just like Winskeet, Progskeet etc do since a long time.

There is no need for a tool that gives users a false feeling of security, while in reality there is none. You need Flowrebuilder anyhow to extract+check and validate your dump. I see no reason why you should not be using the builtin autopatcher of Flowrebuilder too (which is a veteran tool, as Flowrebuilder has been intensely tried+tested+bugfixed).

Venix Downgrade is a Windows application that lets you use your patch in NOR or NAND to return to version "downgrade" 4.11 to 3.55. You can also compare your flash to check if there is errors.

Application created to facilitate the process:

Features:

  • Compatible with Progskeet, E3 Flasher, Teensy 2.0++ other.
  • Compatible with NOR and NAND.
  • Script to check malformed headers, File names, Region names.
  • Check headers offsets NOR.
  • Compares bits between two NAND or NOR.
  • GUI interface.
  • Patch to downgrade simplified.
  • Automated Method
  • Requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4

Portuguese and English version changed according to the language of your operating system.

From the v1.2 release (blog.cursos-games.com.br/?p=902) changes, to quote:

Checking the header and size of files:

  • IFI
  • asecure_loader
  • eEID
  • CISD
  • CCSD
  • trvk_prg0
  • trvk_prg1
  • trvk_pkg0
  • trvk_pkg1
  • cvtrm
  • metldr
  • ROS0
  • ROS1
  • CELL_EXT
  • Checks if the metldr is compatible with downgrade.
  • Validation editable via xml
  • Search patch for external NOR and NAND.

How to use:

  • Make reading your NAND or NOR with E3 or Progskeet.
  • Open your backup with v1.2 Downgrade Venix
  • Rewrite.

Failures: If by chance the program detects a fault, we will use the Flow Rebuild to solve.

  • Let's download the FlowRebuilder v.4.2.2.0.exe.
  • We will open your NOR defective.
  • Now select the "Byte reverse and extract a NOR dump file."
  • Open your NOR and execute the function.
  • The program will create a new NOR with the extension. REV.
  • Remove the extension and apply the patch to v1.2 Downgrade Venix

CFV 2.0 Revision-4 Changelog:

  • Language support - for now is only a Polish, English, German and Spanish. Unfortunately, no special characters support (we plan in future add external font support in lang.xml).
  • Translated databases into German and Spanish.
  • Updated English databases.
  • New icon for displaying text files (i.e readmes/changelogs). Files are define in and read from files DIR.
  • Other minor fixes (SHA2-224 on Windows XP not support yet).

Thanks for translations: Fatman, toto67 and Evilnat. Complete list of rebug fw info set, and a few others. List is not complete but i'll try in future complete it. Some of ./files are ripoff site news (because there's was no official readmes).

Following up on their previous version and Downgrade PS3 Patch GUI, today Core from Brazilian Team VeniX has announced news today of another PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware update to PS3 CFW Venix Plus 4.40.3 Silver with changes detailed below alongside a demo video of it in action.

Download: CFW Venix 4.40.3 [Silver].rar (197.9 MB) / CFW Venix 4.40.2 [Silver].rar (197.8 MB)

Similar to the PS3 4.40 CFW by MiralaTijera, this PS3 Custom Firmware also includes the required ReActPSN RIF License.

To quote, roughly translated: Today I bring you the new version of the CFW breathtaking Venix, OveRx Brazilian developer updates and releases their version to us after several tests, this version besides being 4:40 with keys comes with several new features, such as the manager Venix.

CFW VENIX 4.40 Silver

  • Built using original firmware through 4:40 MiraLaTijela
  • CFW created using the basic MLT 4:40 through MiraLatijela
  • Compatible with 4:40 games without fix
  • QA flag running just use the command.
  • Compatible with downgrade.
  • New Custom Theme
  • New Coldboot customized with new logo Venix
  • Role functioning BDEMU
  • New Menu Manager Venix
  • Exchange of HD without problem.
  • Can be installed by XMB normally.
  • New HSV allowing access to PSN.
  • Animation in the implementation of PS1 games.
  • Misuse of license, now your console will not matter if the content has been paid or not.
  • Download multiMAN, No other Homebrews Manager at Venix
  • Youtube Channels, FaceBook

And many other improvements, here's a short video showing what awaits you.



Changes:

  • Fixed some BUG

  • Animation in the implementation of PS1 games.
  • Misuse of license, now your console will not matter if the content has been paid or not.

Does Teensy 2.0 still work to downgrade 4.10 with Venix? I bought a Teensy Usb Development board on ebay for 16$ free shipping just a few minutes ago. Does anyone know if I can still downgrade from 4.11 with venix?

And A little bit of explanation will do. Not a newb on many scenes. Just this one. So From What I understand I should be able to dump my nand, then use venix to do something too it. I searched for an answer but didn't find one specifically answering my questions.
