135w ago - Following up on the previous update, today the BlueDisk CFW Team (aka E3 Team) have announced that users will need to dump and expose your PS3 EEID (using the EID0.bin generated by their dumper below which requires using their DRM-infected CD Key scheme) and send it to them, and they will send back a 4.25 PUP CFW with strings (yet to be specified) attached so be cautious!

Download: BlueDisk CFW Upgrader v1.01 and Manual (10.84 MB) / BlueDisk CFW Upgrader v1.01 and Manual (Mirror) / BlueDisk CFW Upgrader v1.01 and Manual (Mirror #2) / XMB eEID Dumper and MM v4.25 (12.11 MB) / XMB eEID Dumper and MM v4.25 (Mirror) / XMB eEID Dumper and MM v4.25 (Mirror #2) / 4.25to3.55.rar / cfw3.55checkoff.zip

From GraVoX959:

  • 8BCF7AB97EE4B9D9F74ECDF9FA9E59A8 = cfw3.55checkoff
  • 8BCF7AB97EE4B9D9F74ECDF9FA9E59A8 = 3.55 Rogero v2 CEX

So no need to re-download cfw3.55 checkoff if you have CEX Rogero v2 3.55

From naehrwert:

reDRM mechanism / eid0 binding

  • aim_spu_module.self

the check is basically a

nonbound eid0 firmware

To remove eid0 binding, replace the aim_spu_module.self Iso module from one unpatched OFW 4.25 (tested, it works).

From Dutch user Senaxx comes some additional download links, related info and a PS3 CFW 4.25 PSN demo video below:


When you enter your credentials and press "Check CDKey" it Generates a file called CFWUpgrader.exe.txt. I used Senaxx's info and it was probably wrong but it generated this log:

From cfwprpht: Lv0 is resigned and the most of you know what that means. But anyway something good, they don't have 4.00-4.11 priv key. They still use 3.55 but first we need lv0 static key or we find a other way.

From keytor69: CDKey app does perform a check online at 67.198.173.122.CUSTOMER.KRYPT.COM port 8090, notice the word CUSTOMER and not USER.. won't be long before everybody needs 4.30 CD Keys and then get to see the real cost of things.

As stated above do NOT expose your unique identifiable PS3 EEID (contained in EID0.bin) key information (such as your PSN details) or fall for this CDKey scam! You have been warned folks, if they ask for money in order to downgrade, fix, unlock or update / upgrade your PlayStation 3 console down the road you may end up SOL so NOT worth the risk!

We advise everyone to continue using the free CEX EBOOT patch fixes, free DEX updates or simply be patient until a true PS3 scene group or user cracks their useless CDKey protection scheme or leaks the 4.00-4.11 keys.

Finally, rumor also has it a free PS3 CEX / DEX CFW 4.21 will be arriving soon based on deank's recent multiMAN v04.07.01 Full (20121021) update so have faith in the PlayStation 3 scene and wait for free alternatives that do NOT require a lameass CDKey which should be a no-brainer anyway, eh?

Update #2: The BlueDisk CFW CDKey security protection has now been cracked by PS3 scene developers with details added above. Additionally an Italian site (mynewsportal.it/scena-ps3-cfw-4-25-bluedisk-rilasciato/) has released 4.25 Cracked, however, some users (with Flashers) have reported it to be fake as right before installation they receive a corrupt data (8002F15E) error.

Since then the the PS3 LV0 has been resigned and the keys are now available so it won't be long before free legitimate PS3 CFW v4.21 / v4.25 / v4.30 are released!

No way in hell I'd get a 300$ dongle. Maybe a 3$ one...

does it make sense, as i'm no expert, that it is just 3.55cfw (called and spoofed 4.21cfw) but the fw patches all eboots etc up to and including 4.21?

also if the dongle etc is $300 thats disgusting. buy another ps3 and buy the newer games you really want, then the devs etc will be happy!

No, actually I'm just saying what I read about it. I'm not happy at all about this because it would be too expensive and probably not for 4.21 FW just for 3.55. But if will cost 300 bucks, then I don't thinks so that everyone will.

Because, many people stuck at 3.55+ fw and there is no way out, except downgrading, which is normal to expensive. I don't thinks that will be something about it for users 3.55+ FW. So good luck for everyone and good gaming

because people do not want to make patches, cracks, eboots and let other (nobodies) in on their hard work which is free you are right, but till e3 can secure they wont be issuing new fixes, i had a long conversation on irc, so that is the scoop, they are protecting their work, and stopping red power from making a claim to fame if you do not understand this then gee, we need another language to speak lol.

i give another example, i created something special, that is minimal but a lot of people use it, now some sniffer decides to take my work and make money off it that is not how it works sorry

Somebody is getting greedy, wanting as many sold as possible before it will be useless again! Doubt many will get it at that price if so, though...

Ok, guy I just read that this dongle will cost 300$.

And I read that this 4.21 CFW will work on 4.21 FW, not just on 3.55.

wait, if free eboot fixes are released, who cares if they get released by a dongle? almost no one with half a brain would get the dongle.

i'm kinda confused about what you're saying. i just don't get why it matters if they get the method if other people release eboots for free anyways...

#414 - fantopoulos - 138w ago

my talking WITH several people is that red team power whatever are getting all their info from the eboot fixes/cracks as you will so e3 has haulted to find a way to stop them dead in tracks they need more fixes/cracks to be able to even come close to getting where they want to be so wait a while gents no fixes till hole is shut, that red power is trying to use others works, but they got your number now.

if they are displaying videos that should mean they have a 4.21 jb cfw, but nope thus another fact it sticks on 3.55 firmware it does not take a rocket scientist, red power, do not try to take credit for others works, thus the hault in fixes

Maybe the current user reception didn't meet with their expectations/delusions. I'm actually more concerned in how the patches have come to a halt.
