119w ago - Following up on his previous work, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer condorstrike has released Condor Updater 3 followed by v3.1 for PS3, which offers a pseudo-recovery mode system firmware update from the XMB.

From his blog (linked above): Hi guys, I took a short break from Pointman, my upcoming PS3 Homebrew video game, and decided to investigate what Sony did to prevent Condor Updater from working on 4.xx.

After some coffee and hair pulling it seems the culprit was one of my protection checks implemented in v2.0, so I re-wrote it and added a nice PIC1.PNG and ICON0.PNG, and now it works on 4.xx CFWs.

MD5: 76d30475971f8359fe5951b920eb6a36

Condor Updater v3.0 Changelog:

  • Re-wrote code to make app compatible with 4.xx CFWs.
  • Cleaned Code and removed unneeded LV2 patch protections.
  • Replaced loading method.
  • Replaced ICON0.PNG and PIC1.PNG.

Hope you Enjoy it... CAW!

PS: I don’t have a NAND-PS3 to test with, so I don't know if It'll work on those models.

Condor Updater v3.1 Changelog:

HI GUYS, after releasing Condor Updater 3 I REALIZED it wasn’t complete, so here’s Condor Updater v3.1 which now works on any cfw with recovery option (2.50 and above). so now the same app will install and work for you on cfws 3.55, 4.25, 4.30, downgrade pup, whatever... it is especially useful for those with damaged power buttons or for installing same versions of MFWs over OFW/MFWs or going back from an MFW to an OFW, or any time imo... i never trust xmb updates.

For the noobs: This app allows pseudo-recovery mode system firmware update from XMB.

Meaning, one button press on your controller and you’re ready to update/downgrade to your favorite CFW from recovery mode, Once in recovery all you need to do is follow the on-screen prompts. Also, as of now it still only works on NOR-FLASH PS3s, if you’re unsure which model you own click here (ps3devwiki.com/wiki/SKU_Models).

  • Condor Updater now runs on any CFW with recovery option (2.50 and above).

HOPE YOU ENJOY IT... CAW!

Update: Hi guys, if anyone wants do a quick test for me? This is a new exploit for Condor Updater, I need NAND console test. It works fine on NORS.

Download: Condor_Updater_3.2_Beta.pkg

"Try this at your own risk." Install PKG, and then try running "anything", it should take you to recovery-mode for firmware install like old CU.

every Slim work, and all other Phats work.

Today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer condorstrike has released Condor Updater v1.0 for PS3, which offers a pseudo-recovery mode system firmware update from the XMB.

Download: Condor Updater v1.0 PS3 Homebrew Application

To quote: This app allows pseudo-recovery mode system firmware update from xmb.

I've tested it with Rogero CFW and Kmeaw, but should work with any Firmware that allows the PKG to install.

No more hold down power crap... lol.

If anyone wants to try on 3.55+ to try and downgrade, my answer is try it... what's there to lose... It should also work on PSP and PS VITA, but I haven't tested.

I think this is a very handy app, and as always, I hope you enjoy my releases...caw!

Steps:

  • Install PKG.
  • Run Condor Updater.
  • PROFIT!!!

Disclaimer: I am not liable if this application disables or damages your console and or handheld, use at your own risk.

Finally, from deank: FWIW, a simple call which you or other devs can use to get to the "recovery/Firmware menu" safely for all firmware versions would be something like:

[in psl1ght]
[Register or Login to view code]

or as in mM 2+

[Register or Login to view code]


It is a standard function, which works on all firmwares and all consoles (if one finds a way to call the function from a homebrew app).
