November 4, 2012 // 7:13 am - This weekend Spanish PS3 developer jubytoo has shared a video demo and the related files to allow those with a Factory 3.56 OFW (minimum) console and a PS3 Hardware Flasher to install the recently released E3 PS3 CFW 4.30 with no dongle required!

Download: Patchv1 Three Musketeers.rar / Patchv1 Three Musketeers.rar (Mirror) / Patchv1 Three Musketeers.rar (Mirror #2) / PS3 NOR Patcher v1 Three Musketeers.rar

Below is the demo video and details, roughly translated: CFW 4.30 GOT IN CONSOLE WITH FACTORY minimum firmware 3.56 (FLASHER NEEDED)

Those of you currently with minimum version 3.56 PS3 are in luck With the collaboration of Varicella and Luckymas we have installed CFW 4.30 E3 in such consoles.

Apart indicate that with these patches also apply to install CFW 4.30 E3 directly from any superior to 4.31 OFW no consoles also manufactures minimum version of 3.55 or less and saved the downgrade, without dongle, without factory faster.

For now only in memories NOR, NAND patches for the climb soon after being tested.

We will need these patches Patchv1 Three Musketeers: http://www.mediafire.com/?54r17h5dt054ohx

No need dongle but if a flasher to get our dump, several statutes on how to do it with eol progskeet, E3 or teensy.

Since having our dump patches the following offset:

Since they write patched with a flasher, start the PS3 ripped recovery in a pen and insert the CFW 4.30 PS3/UPDATE E3 in the folder (if you were in 4.30 OFW ripped console normally, in this case enter recovery and update E3 4.30 CFW from there)

Tested on multiple consoles FACTORY OFW 3.56. (We assume that on PS3 with 3.60 OFW METLDR2 NO MINIMUM FACTORY WORKS BUT NOT TESTED)

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MISUSE CAN BE DONE AND THAT MAY CAUSE BRICK.

DATA TO CONSIDER

  • THESE ARE ONLY PATCHES TO INSTALL CFW 4.30 E3 multiMAN OTHER CFW EVEN BEING DAMAGED DATA INDICATE OS 30.4 when trying to install from the Recovery.

Is this finally working on cech-3004b. akimazaki confirmed that this is working on his cech 300x, but some of you think that it's not working anyway. What is right?

had another look at this and need to test some stuff on my old console but i think the fail0verflow cospkg doesnt work on new consoles because i took 4.31ofw coreOS and made no modifications i just repacked it with the cospkg tool and flashed my console and it turns off. so if this method works on my old console then sony stopped the cospkg tool working somehow. anyway i will look at this next year

A method to install CFW directly on 3.55+ OFW is pretty much impossible as it requires the private keys. We got lucky once, but that was easily patched and I really doubt we will get lucky again, I mean, Sony just can't be that stupid. There are quite a few cryptography methods that been release on the 80s and still haven't been hacked, so uhmm.... Don't wait for a miracle. I don't think getting a flasher now is wasting money.

i had another go at putting a custom firmware onto a newer 3000x series console this is what i learned. sony added a 2kb file called lv0.2 inside CORE_OS_PACKAGE.pkg in newer firmwares 3.60+ and it is checked by metldr.2 which is what new consoles have. this prevents downgrades and verifies the integrity of lv0. until we can decrypt and resign lv0.2 flashing different coreOS onto the console is not going to work!

i am agreed with elser1 then open your ps3 na wait for some easy step or hope to get CFW for OFW 4.31 where you no need for downgrade etc...

just to mess up with your working ps3 then break it like wasting your hard earn money for nothing so ya thanks but no thanks... it is just my opinion.

lol i'm done bricking my console for the time. i guess i'm just going to wait until they fix this metldr.2, i even took the back up of a different slim ps3 on cfw rogero and pasted them over on the 3001, just another brick. its been almost a year now i believe and still no fix for this to be able to downgrade?

i only thought it was just the lowest firmware downgradable to not a metldr trouble. well i hope some one can fix this on these newer models. other than that my tutorial is good for all the older slims and phats to just downgrade straight to 4.30 rogero with out 3.55

make a backup of your console nor data and keep it safe, then download this and open both the download and your nor dump in a hex editor copy and paste the whole thing twice, once at offset 0c0010 and again at 7c0010 then save and extract with flow rebuilder everything should be fine then you will have made your console nor backup have rogero 4.30 coreOS

its been tried and tested by me, it doesnt work and will brick your console but you can recover by soldering the tristate wire and flashing your original 4.31 backup

i now have the core_os_package.pkg extracted.

i used flow to byte reverse the backup and i should just copy the whole core_os and paste write using hxd stating from 0c0010 and again at 7c0010,? after that i can save & reverse it back for e3.

there might be if this works from what technodon is having me try.
