PS3 4.00 HFW (Hybrid Firmware) v2 Arrives, Adds Debug XMB Items


Sponsored Links
165w ago - 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".

For those who went to Kiosk and want back to OFW, there's a reverter: http://www.sendspace.com/file/2iiw00 ^-^

I've had one person use this which he went from 4.20 Kiosk to 4.21 OFW with it so... your own risk.

I've just realised my PS3 is being super sensitive when It comes to FW, I've been doing testing with modifying my the update type (CEX/DEX/SEX) flag, manually and with MFW Builder, and my PS3 will only accept the original retail one (with CEX Flag). WTF

Glitchy Joey, made another completely useless firmware which doesn't install any packages at all..

http://www.ps4news.com/forums/ps3-hacks-jailbreak/ps3-firmware-4-00-dev_flash-dump-upsilon-arrives-detailed-121941-16.html#post419054

also he promises to make a fully working custom firmware which gives playstation users false hope.. it is easily created in MFW builder just patch shop to retail firmware and no other modifications. any changes to dev_flash will give you a corrupt data error.

i could make another firmware which does install retail packages however it would only install on 3.55 again? i don't see the point..

Sketchy much? If this is modified then I want to know how. I've little faith in NGU but I can seperate my hate for this.

If I remember right there was something about this in the past..? Not sure though, but either way; all of this just seems... Too much.
