• PS3 Hacks, Rumour , 30.01.2011

    As many of you may know there are these 2 guys posting all over twitter and nextgenupdate.com about a 3.56 cfw. Well I asked to be a tester and was chosen rather quickly. I was amongst the first three people to be sent the firmware via email. Well instead of running off and flashing like they expected I decided to compare OFW 3.56 and his CFW 3.56. The only difference between the two was the fact the version.text was changed. All files were identical to that of the 3.56 OFW. They claim to be doing a full scale release today. If you look this is what the xmb will say when the update is found.

    http://xkcd.nl/dcE

    Also they are now claiming I was not a tester but to prove otherwise here is a copy of the email recieved:

    To the testers of this firmware,
    thank you for expressing your interest and risking an entire console for the good of others!
    Here are some things to know:

    if you do not know how to install an update on a ps3 via storage media, BACK OUT NOW.

    YOU MUST BE ON 3.55 OR LOWER TO INSTALL THIS. I know. It blows. But that is the way it is.

    Please do not leak this file or password to download.

    You are ASKED to report any problems back to me and provide me your console’s serial number located on the white stick beginning with “CECH”

    The faster this is completed, the faster the release comes out.

    WHILE WE HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED THIS, BRICKING IS A POSSIBILITY!!!

    MANY HOMEBREW APPLICATIONS HAVE NOT BEEN SIGNED FOR 3.56, ALTHOUGH THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THEY MIGHT INSTALL CORRECTLY.

    PSN DOES WORK, BUT IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU DO NOT LOG IN TO PSN WITH THE CFW INSTALLED!

    enjoy:

    The PASSWORD TO DOWNLOAD: trgd47

    This was not in anyway a 3.56 cfw. If you download it and install it then you will be welcomed back into the world of ofw. Many of us knew they were fakes, but I have confirmed it. I am still safely on 3.55 and you have been warned.

      what exactly are you trying to say?

      are you trying to say that bobbyblunt is lying, because i put more faith in him than a skiddish unknown cfw dev that cant even pack a pup.

      i have been following the tweets as well and spend most of my time on IRC and nothing i have read put any truth to this cfw.

      and you just confirming that he passed out ofw instead of cfw puts more proof into what bobbyblunt says.

      thank you for that

      Sadly its been over three hours since this post and its still not been front paged.

      However, psx-scene already has it on the front page. http://psx-scene.com/forums/f6/confi...fw-fake-79184/

      Something must be done about the amount of time it takes news to be posted here. If you need help I am happy to volunteer (and have even signed up to do so).

      I just think with this site being so busy with so many users that it should be on the ball with posting news while it is still fresh and especially when it could possibly prevent people from bricking their ps3's.

      You know people that mod their consoles are called scum (No offense but we are that sadly)... But people lieing just to make you go OFW... Thats just dirty.
      And I have the biggest and yet weirdest suspicion that even Sony could be doing this.... Possible? maybe...

      Anyways Thank You Bubby You are the savior of CFW today...

      Thank you Mr.Blunt for putting a stop to that insanity. Watching people post about that CFW for the past 48 hours was annoying. i don't really think a 3.56 CFW is what's needed. if you wanna play on the PSN that bad just go to OFW. personally I'm really happy with what i already have for CFW.

      Also isn't there an issue in OFW 3.56 where HDDs that aren't the systems original aren't being recognized?

      AS with all cfw you should wait for the green light by reputable people and having it properly tested.

      As for the guys who are spreading this, well what else are 12 year olds gonna do.

      I think that there is a reason why the Devs are not wasting time on CFW 3.56, The reason been OFW 3.56 just introduced new security measures and nothing else.

      So what would be the point of undoing all the 3.56 security measures just to play games on PSN, When CFW3.55 is the same as OFW 3.56 but with out the security measures added in the first place.

      Even if devs have already cracked 3.56 they will not release it, Like i say there is no point to it bar the fact you would get PSN access just to have sony release a new firmware with tighter security measures that Devs will have to crack.
      Its better to give sony a false victory and await a OFW Update that contains something better other then more security, That's when you will see a higher CFW then 3.55

      If you want PSN then buy another PS3 to use online as you can get a secondhand one cheap these days, That's what i do infact i am getting quite a collection going as i like to by broken ones and try to fix them lol

      Exactly.
      Psn is the only reason for creating a 3.56cfw and there is no place for modded consoles online and the true devs understand this

      To waste an exploit (if one exists) just to get online would be a waste when it could be used on the next sdk revision firmware to enable any new features that may be introduced.

      That is super naive Nothing is childish in the name of profit.. if the go to 3.56 OFW they might by a 2nd ps3(stupid but its confirmed that lotsa ppl do it so they will prey on it) the other chance is ppl brck their consoles trying to downgrade from 3.56 = repair cost all translates to $$$$$$$$

      i think the only thing we need is for users at 3.56 is downgrader back to 3.55
      once back to 3.55 everything is done less work rather than creating rehacking 3.56...

      notice how this DUSTIN fool encourage people to Rip their power cord when updating i dont even think this is a safe method of downgrading... has this even proven works?

      seems like this DUStin fool wants people to brick ppls ps3 nor gets stuck on ofw 3.56!

      It's fake bull****, install it if you have to but don't cry of it breaks your console. 3.56 cfw won't happen any time soon, it's way to locked up for that... patience is a virtue and at some point I'm sure it will happen, just not yet...

      Again why would you want to show sony how you down grade from 3.56 when as we know there is no point been on 3.56 (unless you did so by mistake), Its better to wait for a new firmware with a new SDK in it to waste the hacks on rather then waste them on petty little updates.

      Think of it this way ... Your going to banging party and you take only 1 condom with you do you..

      A)waste it on the first plain frumpy looking girl who shows some intrest.
      or
      B)save it for the worlds most smoking hot babe who arives 2 hours later on

      Finaly if you have found your self on OFW 3.56 then please please do not be in a rush to try and downgrade and wait.
      Because if you get a wanker releasing a so called 3.56 downgrader that bricks consoles. you will find only the people who could not wait patiently will brick because they rushed in to it before finding out its fake.

      Good things will come to the patient one's ........ for people who can not wait there is always ebay for a second console lol

      about the downgrade and all that, well we know how to make them using the same strategy that we used to make the 3.55 downgrade, but its not worth it now... lets wait for a firmware that is worth hacking...

      Modded consoles have no place online due to the main reason been that online is what some games devs rely on for there bread and butter while they bring out other games. As its the online elements that make or break a game.

      Could you really see half the titles that are popular online been that popular if there was not online game play drawing in people to buy the title, just think of how many games last 2 months before they end up in the bargin bucket that sucked online.

      Playing copys/backups on the PC online is frowned upon by alot of PC gamers as PC games do not have fancy firmware updates to bring more security, from my 11 years of serous pc online play i found that most people who download a copy of pc game and like it will go out and buy it just to get the key code to play online. and its this reason alone that games are made for the pc still.

      So just think is playing online with backups really worth it, If you like the game that much is it not better to buy it and support the game's devs rather then risk a console ban....thats when you will wish you had went legit online!! there are tons of people on the COD forums wasting there breath protesting a ban

      It wont be long before we see games with unique Id codes to make spotting downloaded/shared backups online easyer for sony and game makers to perma ban console form online play mark my words

      Do you personally know how to make a 3.56 downgrader? I dont know if its worth making a downgrader for now but i am sure that making a downgrader will help some people who made the mistake to update or others like me. I bought an old used fat ps3 and it has 3.56 fw. And i dont like/play online games at all.

      I agree with everything you had said, And couldn't put it any better than what you had.

      The main purpose i see for why there is CFW and the ability to backup your game is to keep your disks safe and not worry about the hassle of a constant disk change when you decide to play a different game. The ability to backup the game YOU own is by far legit whether or not you play that backed up game online. Hell i own numerous amount of games and the ones i would keep safe and clean are the ones stored on my PS3 which is only 3 games.

      There are people and im sure 100's here do it, They go out hire a game from a local video shop back it up onto there PS3 and return the game they do not own ripping off game developers and the companies that work hard to create the game(s).

      I see no reason not to play a legit backup game that YOU own while still being on firmware 3.55 and playing online with that game, I dont see any reason why you should get a ban for that. And how many people have you seen complaining about sony bricking/banning there PS3 for playing a backup online? In my opinion not many.

      As for the 2 idiots 'faking' a CFW they can go to hell, As for the people that went ahead and used that FW without waiting for any further news you only got what you deserve.

      You will never see this on disc based games. It is not economically viable to press individual discs with unique codes on them. Costs and production times would skyrocket.

      Retail discs are not the same as the discs you burn in your home machine. They are layers of material pressed together in bulk. The only thing that can be unique about them is what is written on the disc its self -- hardly useful to prevent downloading of the game.

      Wow first off this is not a "stay on PSN thread." Second, this trick will be dead tomorrow or Tuesday at the latest. This window of opportunity comes with every firmware update. If you think it will keep you online you are sadly mistaken. Also easy with the emoticons. All that crap looks like spam.

      I knew this was a fake yesterday when I saw it. I mean c'mon, the guy didn't even know how to compile a freaking PUP.

      I would say that i can't believe that there are people out there that really either hate the CFW scene or just felt like it would be funny to pull a stunt like that, but i would be lying to myself.

      bobby, the fact remains that some people live for online play. We must be first generation video game players. only us in the first gen remember when online play did not exist. imagine, if you will, COD black ops on a 300 baud modem. talk about people shatting their pants...lol

      That's why the wait for updated CFW is so easy for us First gen.

      I looked at his first set of files figuring he was sending crap on purpose. He sent to vsh and modules in folders instead of in archives. The whole time I was claiming I couldn't pack it I already knew why. So I went along with his crap then he mentioned force PUP which doesn't exist. I kept going along with it until he sent me a PUP. In his first set of files he sent 3.56 kakaroto as the version.txt. In his finished pup you saw what it was posted as. He tried dragging a respected ps3 dev into this and that sir is sad. Well they have crawled back into the hole they came from and nobody will ever see that PUP. Avoid nextgenupdates.com when it comes to ps3 hacking. Come here or another reputable site. All nextgen is are a bunch a CoD cheaters.

      That is true. First online game I ever really played was SOCOM on ps2 and that was 9 years ago. Wow I'm getting old

      That IP for the DNS trick doesn't expire untill 2018, Whether someone puts a complaint towards that IP or sony manually blocks it from allowing us to connect to PSN i don't know. I might be more than wrong but i'm sure Sony doesn't own it although it is based in the US with it hosting these websites:
      8 Hosts on this IP

      I say use it if you cant wait for the next CFW, But as always, Everything is AYOR when it comes to modding/hacking/experimenting.

      Ok I believe I said stay on topic. DNS bypass is off topic. This is not new. Sony has shut this trick down 4 times since the original jailbreak on 3.41. It will work everytime there is an update. When it is cut off in the next day or so I don't want to say I told you so. If for some reason you don't believe me go to our IRC irc.ps3sanctuary.com and ask around. You will get told the same thing.

      ANYMORE OFF TOPIC POSTS FROM ANYONE WILL RECEIVE INFRACTIONS!!!

      i went 22 years of my life playing games that weren't online fps, i think i can go a few more. i don't care for the psn and sony does own that and i support them to protect it from cheaters, but my ps3 is mine. i own it. i'm not some mindless slave and i'm certainly not the mindless slave of a facist japanese company bend on telling me what i can or cannot do with something i bought with cash and my signature is not on one piece paper they have. i still have my receipt, nowhere on it says i entered a no contest binding contract with sony.

      i got a gun, i have a right to that gun. i have a house, i have a right to do whatever i will myself to do in that house with privacy. if sony or any other company wants to forcefully come into my property with ill intent, i will use that gun to protect me and mines.

      companies are using their technology and forced fw updates to make slaves of us.

      what they're doing to geohotz is wrong and is being done to make a statement. the statement is, "only we know what's good for you and we will stamp out all opposition to that." the devs hiding behind curtains are right now in my book, worse than sony. no man or woman should fear any godam company and the ones that do are yellow cowards that should have never picked a keyboard to hack the ps3 in the first place. if they knew sony would let their wolves out to eat, then they should have brought a rifle.

      jailbreak 3.56 anyone even have a little clue when it will be out days weeks ?
      it's rumoured that the new firmware checks the integrity of the system to make sure it hasn't been modified. if that's true, it will be almost impossible to jailbreak anymore.
      ************* [ - Post Merged - ] *************
      I think that there is a reason why the Devs are not wasting time on CFW 3.56, The reason been OFW 3.56 just introduced new security measures and nothing else. So what would be the point of undoing all the 3.56 security measures just to play games on PSN, When CFW3.55 is the same as OFW 3.56 but with out the security measures added in the first place.
      "just to play games on psn" hmmmm ... you don't realize that almost everyone is interested in playing games online. playing sf4 or fps games vs cpu is no fun. the reason why 3.56 hasn't been jailbroken yet is because the hackers failed (so far). Kakarotoks said himself that the security was tough and uncrypting the keys was not enough. It has nothing to do with "the hackers don't want to break it yet, they want to wait for a new cool firmware (within months maybe) before doing so"

      Was it not only a couple of weeks ago that people were claiming the ps3 was well and truly hacked and sony could do nothing about it because the keys had been found, now with this small firmware change sony seems to have got on top of the hackers and locked down the ps3 once again for a while.

      I personally am going to stick with my dongle on 3.41, too many people got burned in the rush to create 3.55 cfw and i predict the same will happen again with 3.56 and beyond.

      Hi, im gonna be a little off topic here guys. I got an 80022D11 error and I googled it yet I found no luck on fixing it other than deleting user account, recreating it, reformatting my hard drive and then re-sync trophies. I used the search option on this site too but theres no thread about it here. Anyway, if any of you guys knows a solution other than delete/recreate/reformat, it would be greatly appreciated.

      This happened last week at the same day btw and I actually thought I got banned off PSN but then the next day when I turned my PS3 it worked just fine which is weird... well I just hope the same thing happens tomorrow lol. Im on 3.55 KMEAW btw. Thanks in advance.

      Sony could avoid a lot of issues if they just give what the public clearly wants. Sadly that isn't how it works, but in this case how many people would still truly hack if Sony stepped up and did like MS and let people install the game to the HDD?

      Guys.....REMEMBER. after upgrading to 3.56, NO MORE USB UPDATES. has to be done serverside for now. This is one hella thing that will have to be fixed in custom firmware in order to downgrade from 3.56.period. Unless someone can throw a bone to the OFW to fix this issue via a custom dongle hex..or whatever, It will not happen soon. I repeat, be VERY careful upgrading to any firmware when it first comes out. I waited 2 weeks before going to 3.55CFW kmeaw on my 60gb launch model. I had to hear from alot of the 60gb model people first before i took the plunge. I even took awhile to go to component cable from the yellow,red,white cable. (1080i is now awesome btw). To all the developers of CFW, To all the software homebrew developers. Thank you for all that you do. To SONY, thank you for creating a great console. Now without usb updates online (seeing as i dont have mine connected online all the time), is this going to screw up later when i buy a new game that requires 3.60, 3.86...whatever, and i dont have internet hooked up to pull a new firmware? What about retail return policies? open the game...yer screwed. You cant return. Maybe someone should point that out to them when thinking everyone only plays online games. Nintendo makes most games offline single/multiplayer. If Sony wants to kill PSN..thats fine, its thier network. Just dont ruin it for those that dont really care too much about PSN. Later i will have to say...only does everything....IF connected to internet and updated. Hence a huge flaw in thier updates. I actually know a few people that didnt know it could even be updated since they do not play multiplayer online games.

      I do not know why people are saying there's no USB update option, Sony are allowing people to download the 3.56 firmware and as stated on their website:

      "Download update data using a PC and save on storage media* or a USB Mass Storage device. Copy the update data to the PS3� system's hard disk drive and perform the update."

      Which means the USB storage device option is still there, I'm still on 3.55 Kmeaw (I think that is how you spell it) myself so I have not personally seen the option for USB updating not be available, please correct me if I am wrong.
