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:

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)

e3 installed already did a back up now flashing it. you can tell its a 3001a model the fan is smaller than any other slim out there. actually just about everything in the 3001a slim is smaller than any other slim before its time. power supply plug from mb, the p/ejct ribbon smaller, fan smaller, motherboard is shorten on the left back side compared to the 2501x models, the power cable from mb to power supply is repositioned and does not let a 2501 case fit.

oh just successfully did a flash no doing the downgrade.bin reflash for the nor.

I will wait for alchybear to post a follow-up video, but to clarify is the current issue that alchybear claims this was done on a 3000x series PS3 and technodon stated they use metldr.2 debunking what alchybear posted in the guide won't work on them?

From what I can gather aside from supposition, alchybear never said it was confirmed working on the super slims (CECH-400xx) just the newer (CECH-3000x) PS3 slim consoles.

Or am I confused as it's early in the morning here

dont try and dig yourself out of a hole here, sony changed the bootloader keys on newer consoles also 3000x series has metldr.2 the newer ps3's are very secure because sony fixed the sign fail bug that the fail0verflow team found which stops us calculating new private keys also they removed linux support. so you would need the new private key then you could sign loaders on the newer console then install linux and see if you can exploit the new bootloader. but it aint going to happen

i'm guess i'll make another video on a 3000x console, CECH-3001a to be specific specific to prove this works on 2000-3000 slims models. only thing i can say is i don't know if it will on 4000 since i don't have one.

This is not news and should be removed before people get their hopes up. lv2diag.self is signed with 3.55 private key. so this will definitely not work on newer console which didn't support 3.55

you use a flasher and downgrade it just like their tutorial except you use the files i have ready instead of the files released with e3.
