135w ago - Today the Red Power Team have made available a demo video below of what appears to be the first legitimate PS3 4.21 CFW running Dead or Alive 5 (DOA5) for Custom Firmware users!

To quote, roughly translated from Chinese (with a better translation by wy103 and zoonin now available): Just deliberately pulled Ida driving to the the RED POWER city where, met with their people and then get it back one is said to brush a 4.21 CFW hosts not open test, ready to begin testing next evaluation please wait...

Updated: Sent to test the host HDMI interface is bad, then do without TV box, component cable, as well as support for AV input of the display device, in looking for a solution

Last update: Is too cold dead first home tomorrow measured other ...

DOA 5 PS3 DEX Update Patch Links:


Update: Roughly translated below (with a better one from zoonin):

Start a new day update: New day comes, one will continue then measured the first time said the video under yesterday. When measured yesterday recorded 2-segment run DOA5 video, I thought foolproof, so the finished recording received something.

A look at the results on to the computer, not recorded to the first paragraph of the previous section, and the second not let everyone see the first run of the game MM modify the SFO version of the details onto the thing was too lazy to go re-recorded, conference room projector with them too much trouble (hanging Lao Gao).

So thinking anyway, in front from the MM into the running of the process are the same, so clip to the time come later start time than MM out of the system, also appeared.

Well, explain this. Then again, Aisin letter today recorded video will pay particular attention to the orz.

Update #2: Roughly translated below (with a better one from zoonin once again)!

MHP3 (Monster Hunter Portable 3rd) to the long-awaited, first put screenshots (AV port connected to PC TV box testing, the effect is unclear, do not spray on video afternoon).

Because the host comes with the MM version is too old, and does not support direct load game install PSP REMASTER Then copy the the game ontology install PKG USB hard disk to install.

After the installation is complete, XMB appears the MHP3 the icon. Click to enter. GOGOGO.

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:

When I clicked download it added this to the file:

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.

From PS3Nor on this 'bad joke' dubbed BlueDisk: please send me your Eid0 key.. LOL: we will drm your console and then charge you mega bucks. ok sounds great LOL #nochance

From Flat_z: guys, stop buying a stupid key you don't need it really

From deank: I'm not touching this firmware even remotely.

From their e-mail (via China, Guangdong, Guangzhou): Dear friend, last month we send CFW4.21 to a China forum to test and works well. Now we release our latest BlueDisk CFW upgrader to download CFW 4.25.

From BlueDiskTeam (via bbs.duowan.com/thread-29221529-1-1.html), roughly translated: The Bluedisk team CFW4.25 has tested in the world's major forum for public and widely praised. In order to return to play more concern and love of the players in this specially send free CDKey (worldwide exclusive).

Special Note: CDKey can only be used once, use 2 displays invalid (invalid), players do not use invalid CDKey or peril.

The evening will be sent free of charge CDKey.

Again: there are malicious side players sent using CDKey to the players, leading to a host of bricking. (You can use the hardware downgrade solution brick) Players before use CDKey is valid or invalid, must not use invalid (invalid) CDKey. In order to protect your safety, please use the official software download CFW, do not use third-party download software such as Thunder.

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!

the closest thing i have to a dongle is an e3 reader, and that was only to save me from a semi brick. when humans try to hold information for the purpose of power it will always cause development to slow or even stop. but as the creator of whatever, it is and should be their decision what to do with it. its the outcome of their decision that they have to learn to live with.

Multiman is probably the best homebrew i have ever scene on any platform. but in order for Deank to keep it so up to date and current he has to make decisions all the time. hes already updated it to work with 4.25 so hes obviously had access to a cfw or a dongle in order to prepare multiman to be ready to work upon its release.

if he did release anything then the other developers would lose trust in him and then he wouldn't be able to keep his project (multiman) so great and current

you can change it. convince people to not get the dongle or any dongle.

Dongles really hold back the scene and had us all throttled. If we didn't get their product, we were left in the dust. When their product had no use, they completely disbanded their product cause they didn't care about their customers, only profits and stopped supporting it outright. Hacking shouldn't ever look like there's a monopoly. It should be about sharing info or competing to make the most out of a product. It just was about piracy and profits, along with this product.

Multiman is at least way more than that. It can back up games, it can play them, it has a beautiful interface, it has a browser, etc. These teams don't really make much and just rely on other people's work without giving credit.

money is the root of evil in this. devs will likely succumb to them just to get some money rather than keep information like this free and open source. i mean, charging for piracy is the most ironic and stupid thing, yet people allowed it to happen. if you're gonna get something, buy the game and support developers, not people just looking for a buck.

this is not their job, but their hobby. yes, devs like deank and the sorts should but that's why they do this in their spare time and have real jobs. if they're respectable, they get noticed.

Great respect to all developers, paid and unpaid. But the greatest respect of all has to be to those who share and give freely.

its their choice and whatever they decide is fine by me, as long as they keep giving me the latest tech and the scene dosen't come to a complete halt.

as an afterthought i have nothing against dongles, but i'm also unlikely to ever get one (unless its amazing lol)

all dongles are nigh useless, if not completely useless.

it's pretty much been proven that the dongle is just for money. flashers are pretty much the only mandatory hardware that an be used on a ps3

if it effectively is a dongle, and it is more than a symbolic price, then by any ways, do not feed it, but it's useless to say they suck if you aren't even sure what it is
