January 26, 2012 // 4:44 pm - Following up on the previous update of my PS3 4.00 Dev_Flash mod, today I've released version 2 of my PS3 4.00 HFW (Hybrid Firmware).

Download: PS3 4.00 HFW (Hybrid Firmware) v2

Change Log:

Version 2:

  • Adds "Debug XMB Items" to the XMB Column "PlayStation Network" (contains the Debug items found in this column, originally for DEX)
  • Removes the useless "PlayStation Plus" XMB item from the XMB Column "PlayStation Network"
  • Disables Cinavia DRM on all media except Blue-ray.

Version 1:

  • Adds DeViL303's "XMB File Manager" to the XMB Column "Game"
  • Adds "/app_home/PS3GAME/" to the XMB Column "Game" (has no function at the moment, but is here for completeness)

Installation Instructions are the same as before:

1. Be on a firmware 3.55 or less
2. Install the .pup through the XMB (Make sure you have a working hardware flasher as there is no other way to downgrade)

Remember only retail signed .pkg can be installed with this. Have fun. THIS HFW WILL NOT ALLOW HOMEBREW!

An important message for users upgrading from a QA Flagged console: If this console is updated to my 4.00HFW from a QA Flagged console, it will not be able to access the extra System Settings provided by QA Flagging. However all settings made with the QA Debug Settings will remain, EXCEPT "System Debug Update".

Extra Credits: This HFW uses the "XMB File Manager" by DeViL303 which is a modification of Team Rebug's "Packages Manager".

Neither file is 13mb. The .pkg in the archive you uploaded, is the same one that I posted a link to before.

That's not even the latest version, and all official releases of the XMBM+ are hosted on the XMBM+ dropbox.
