• PS3 firmware 3.56 has been released, it is highly advised to NOT update at this time until we get our hands sticky and find out what new has been added. The “word on the street” is that this new firmware breaks 3.50 homebrew - but nothing is 100% confirmed yet. If you do feel daring to update feel free to do so and post your results.

    Stay tuned for updates as they roll in.

    [Download PS3 FW 3.56] [Mirror 1]

    ============================================================

    The DNS bypass trick still works - probably going to be patched soon (67.202.81.137).

    PS3Hax member Mortonx has made a simple video tutorial on how to get on PSN via DNS bypass:

    UPDATE 1

    Confirmed: PS3 3.56 currently kills homebrew - installing over with current existing CFW’s does NOT work.

    According to PSX-Scene the new update contains a new .SELF with an unknown KEY and all homebrew tools will have to be updated in order to restore their functionality. You can also read a log of what a few devs are thinking of v3.56 HERE.

    UPDATE 2

    Good ole’ KaKaRoToKS is hard at work in cracking the new firmware, updates from his Twitter:

    isoldr keys are now pushed too.

    lv1 and lv2 keys are now pushed to my ps3keys repo.. more coming : http://github.com/kakaroto/ps3keys

    pup from ps3utils and puppack/pupunpack from ps3tools in github.com/kakaroto can now pack/unpack 3.56 correctly.

    UPDATE 3

    KaKaRoToKS has cracked it and gotten the keys for the new firmware 3.56 in a matter of hours :)

    To quote:

    btw, it’s easy to find the new keys.. I might write a script for that.. in the meantime: ps3utils/selfdiff 355/*/*/lv1ldr 356/*/*/lv1ldr

    Just got home, found the application keys while on the bus, now also pushed to github.com/kakaroto/ps3keys enjoy! :)

    Stay tuned at PS3Hax for the fasted updates on the new firmware.

      As always, the DNS trick works like a charm.

      CFW Kmeaw, and online.

      I wonder if signed app's work on the new FW.

      DNS is:

      67.202.81.137

      Doesn't take a genius to figure out that they just fixed the ECDSA signing failure in the parts of the firmware that are easy to do (lv1, lv2, isoldr, vsh modules). The only question is whether they attempted to white-list old games or not (I bet not) or AACS drive revocation and new keys (maybe).

      I tried to get some more info on this update and ended up running into this on the Playstation Forums. If you were to blindly stumple upon this, you just might think that "hackers" enabled a type of grand armegedon of sorts that the legit user now has to deal with & blah, blah, blah.

      If you wanna get a kick or fire back at some of these nieve fanboys read this: Thanks Hackers!!!

      ok, so they added a new .self file in the PUP
      what is it named KaKaRoTo?
      and it seems it contains a key that we don't know about
      hmm
      rms, can't know, they use 0x601 entry id
      hrm
      filesize?
      i still have to download half of the pup
      5660160
      same filesize as ps3swu.self
      interesting
      probably
      newer updater
      older updater?
      well
      every new key is visible
      yeah, probably a newer ps3swu.self that is more secure
      but they kept the old one for people upgrading from older firmwares
      that's the problem
      its technically impossible for them to have add a new decryption key
      the new ps3swu.self probably decrypts and uses the new self
      latest irc

      I think it takes them a while to update it. With the last psp update it took them a day or so to get the latest one on their website.

Then I wondered if i could still jailbreak using 3.55 stuff so i plugged in my flashdrive with 3.55 cfw from geohot and tried to update via storage media and brought up 3.55JB .
      So the jailbreak is working and i can still host lobbies on mw2 but if the update wasnt to patch jailbreak what was it for???

      you'll try it and tell me what you think!
      As I said before, probably to determine who has a jailbroken PS3. It's likely not even to secure the PS3 anymore, and it might pave the way to start banning systems. I'd be very careful until this is confirmed either way.

      Oh Sony Sony Sony...
      You just keep making useless updates, you really don't know how to please nobody and this is why you will always fail...
      Do you reaaaaally think that you can stop hackers, because till today nobody succeeded in any way...
      Wouldn't it be nice if you once hear that some people want some features soooo long in software updates?, for over 2 years people CRY for cross game chat (not personally interested but I just mention). do you think that you can simply skip your costumer's will without a price?
      This way you just pi** off both hackers and your normal costumers...
      You know what happened when you last p***d off somebody...Right?(Nice old days of removal of OtherOS)
      Why don't you ever learn from your mistakes and you don't just stop repeating history?
      Who's not gonna be mad with a Firmware like:

      Official 3.56 Firmware update features:

      *You can now use your Playstation 3 console as a Lamestation.
      *You can now brick your console trying to make a new modified firmware.
      *You can now see that if we say so we can fix anything... -inside developer's head voice: ...however the fact we are screwed and we know it-.

      What's my point?
      What you will win by blocking CFWs from PSN for let's say 3 or 4 weeks even more OK?... ...cause the only thing we are sure is that we will fix that sooner or later-both in near future-. Do you try to win time for something by doing so? This has a BIG cost on your costumers, a cost that you can't even afford...
      If you really don't know what to do leave us alone and drop the support of PS3s because the street you took leads to this...

      isoldr keys are now pushed too.
      lv1 and lv2 keys are now pushed to my ps3keys repo.. more coming : http://github.com/kakaroto/ps3keys
      pup from ps3utils and puppack/pupunpack from ps3tools in github.com/kakaroto can now pack/unpack 3.56 correctly.

      DNS bypass works here in New Zealand. After trying to sign in to PSN several times (Via DNS Bypass) on KMEAW 3.55 it kept saying cannot connect check internet settings after checking and testing it several times i decided to turn off the playstation via XMB then off at the back then back, It finally worked. My 2nd day with a JB PS3. It's a shame i now cant use my P3Go lol! oh well.

      No,it does NOT remove it through USB. If you update to 3.56 with a CFW 3.55 you'll brick. And then you can't access your recovery mode. But regardless, you CAN still update on the XMB from USB on 3.56 CAN WE PLEASE STIFLE THAT RUMOR. Somebody misworded something and everyone freaked out.

      There have been quite a few reports of users who updated from 3.55 cfw to 3.56 ofw bricking (Kmeaw's mostly, but it's probably the same with the others). Of course, ALWAYS use Recovery to update to 3.55 ofw first if you're gonna install 3.56.

      The validity of the reports themselves aren't certain, but it's always better to be safe.

      If Sony just made apps for the PS3 that were functional, we wouldn't be here helping each other modify this piece of hardware we bought with our HARD EARNED FU**ING MONEY. Update after update just to figure out ways to fu** the people who paid good money for their product, instead of making a media player that needs to be coddled like a blind retarded child, and a web-browser actually capable of browsing the web. I tried to watch the new Zeitgeist movie on YouTube and after 20 minutes of trying to navigate to it, I could only watch it at 240p. On a 50" TV. It looked like the whole screen had been blurred by A Current Affair.
      We're not trying to steal or harm anyone - we're making a statement:

      If you won't give us what we demand, we'll do it ourselves - TOGETHER. And we'll have a ****ing blast helping each other while doing it. Sony, didn't step up, so they will have to step off and go cry to their corporate lawyers.

      IT'S OUR TURN!!

      I'm being serious. If you go to ps3 -hacks website there are loads of people reporting that. And then based off of what kakaroto has published he said it makes total sense that there would be bricks if you go from a CFW to an OFW. Really hackers can just do what they did on the PSP and set up a dedicated server that updates straight to a new CFW.

      Some thoughts...
      please be calm...Kakarots is already at work...and seems very confident!I say 24-36h and 3.56 is considered just another "FAIL"!
      But until then, beware of this new update,keep yourself offline until further news come of this...you have more to gain by stay put then rushing in and updating and using DNS!I know the consoles are yours to do as you will...but remember the "BRICK CRYES" on waninkoko's cfw??? Imagine yourselfs crying over a BAN or a BRICK for trying something no other has tested (like trying to use kmeaw or other cfw on 3.56).
      Im not a hater...as a matter of fact im a follower of the site for some months now...ever since march-may 2010, just as a reader.
      I leave with one request: can someone point me with a REALLY NOOB FRIENDLY tutorial on how to jailbreak with 3.55 kmeaw?if it has videos/pics on how to do it,even better, as Im having difficulties using my downloaded ISO's on any backup manager on this cfw!I know it must be easy...but im a NOOB \o/ o.O and can someone PM me about 2 or 3 good fast link/ways to download PS3 games?I have many games bought,but some games I would never buy but I'd like to give them a try. (sorry for the off-topic)

      I can confirm it working on the east coast of th U.S. and how would SONY know what im doing if im NOT signed into their server but still online leading me to ask is it LEAGLE for SONY to do that because im online but not signed in and SONY has NO RIGHT to look into what i do or play on MY ps3 that I paid $500 bucks for if im NOT doing anything on THEIR server so if i get banned then ill sue SONY for internet intrusion/spying LOL and the way its looking for them now i would most likely win LOL! LOL!

      so dont worry about it as long as the hackers can find a way around it there will always be CFW and SONY will do like a five year old and stomp their feet and flop around on the ground whining and crying screaming "I DONT LIKE HACKERS" and their mommy and daddy will punch them in the mouth and say "DEAL WITH IT AND EAT YOUR BRUSSEL SPROUTS" and everyone will laugh and SONY will die a little inside and isnt that what lif is all about.

      NO.

      It does not. Please read through the thread first before asking questions. They've probably already been answered.

      Example being, people have been testing geohot's when they update. It recognizes it, and then beeps only 3 times (meaning it doesn't work).

      Big thanks to Kmeaw, have enjoyed catching up with old friends and playing my legit (copy of Bad Company 2 (which is much better on PC btw) and most of all, I don't have to cold boot, power, eject to play homebrew anymore! WOOT!

      As for USB updates, who cares? It would be so easy to bypass. We have Blu-Ray emulation so a simple bit of work with ftp would have a "game" disc loaded with custom update.pup in no time!

      Me, I'm glad $ony has updated. The more practice these legends get at cracking/customising firmware versions the better. Still hoping for that proper Linux install procedure.

      you can update via usb. you just can't do it using the current cfw. you can update OFW via usb. just tried it with my test ps3. now until a new cfw comes out, don't try to use the 3.55 cfw after you update(lawd know why) or you run the risk of bricking.

      i am totally for all that the hacking community does! But people need to realize that Sony will update their FW EVERYTIME WE START GETTING ONLINE WITH HACKED CONSOLES! They don't want it and I can't blame them! XBOX Live is a big piece of **** because of the modded consoles on the servers. It aint no fun to play with cheaters!
      I'm sure that all the hardworking Devs are at work right now trying to pick this new FW apart, and within a week or so I'm sure we will be back online, but a week after that Sony will probably update again! Stop getting pissed about it, ITS NEVER GOING TO STOP! If you want to play online, Buy a new PS3 and play it online! If you want a JB console, with backups and emulators and fake holes for you penises, then do it without PSN. It's the price we pay! I ain't saying its right, but at this point it is their only defense! Might as well get used to seeing it!

      I bet sony will soon release an update that removes the use of USB Storage devices.

      They will most likely start closing off the PS3 so you can only update via disc or internet, the the USB will only be used to charge your Controller and headset

      This is what I did,first things first. I was online before the update was put out to everyone not online at the time. While online I changed my Dns and right after, I signed in with no update 3.56. I have a 250 g old skool phat. but so far so good. Kn1vez.....................




      Ok,now I put it to the test. I log out and signed in 3 times and no update,then I shut it off completely and turned it on and again no update 3.56. as well as home brew still in tact. So if you been online for the past 3 to 4 hours do what I did exactly......Kn1vez

      Actually, I just said the hell with it and updated my 3.55-jb firmware to Official 3.56. Recovery Menu IS still available to me. System update via internet and storage media IS still available. The install package files folder is gone and previously installed .pkg files remained, the just would not start. Most important of all, My system is not bricked. I have a CECHA01 model if it makes a difference. So it seems to me that all this update did was block all homebrew software from running. Hence, security update

      Previously on KMEAW 3.55 CFW - updated to Sony's 3.56 OFW this evening and everything seems to be working as normal. I was however, signed out of the Playstation network 2 or 3 random times, but that was nothing new for me. I can confirm the Elitemossy v8 patch still works on PSN, at least it does for me. I even hosted a lobby with the patch running! I see that it won't be too much longer before a fix comes out anyways, with Kakaroto already successfully having packed and unpacked the update (as well as got the keys). No worries here! Hope everyone else has as much luck with the update as I have. And, if you have any questions, hit me up. I've (previously) survived a jailbroken freeze; red screen of death; and have been to 3.15 and back.

      Guess they're takin time...
      And they are just fragmenting the scene... There are not enough devs to handle lots of different cfw versions, the quality and the stability of cfw is gonna decrease... but we don't know nothing about 3.56 to talk about it right now...
      ps: don't update to 3.56 if on cfw, heard that there is serious risk of bricking (unconfirmed rumour)

      I could possibly see that happening with the removal of USB updating, but not completely removing USB functionality besides headsets and controllers, they want the PS3 to be a multimedia center. They're not gonna punish the 96% of people that genuinely use the system by getting rid of playing media through USB.

      But if they did remove updating through USB we'd just have to do what we did on PSP and make a CFW of whatever that concurrent firmware is with a dedicated server instead of Sony's official server. So when you go to update you'll get the newest CFW installed.

      I'm sure that all the hardworking Devs are at work right now trying to pick this new FW apart, and within a week or so I'm sure we will be back online, but a week after that Sony will probably update again! Stop getting pissed about it, ITS NEVER GOING TO STOP! If you want to play online, Buy a new PS3 and play it online! If you want a JB console, with backups and emulators and fake holes for you penises, then do it without PSN. It's the price we pay! I ain't saying its right, but at this point it is their only defense! Might as well get used to seeing it!
      I understand that but I guess most of us don't care for cheating (even though cheating on PSN is at nearly zero percentage because of it's complexity), but even if you want to avoid that, you can play with people you know and trust otherwise there is no real hype about PSN at all just saty offline, you won't miss it, trust me. Even if you don't cheat with hacks there are always ways to cheat legally (like discarders on RE5 or glitches in XXXX game) or whatever trick. Cheaters will cheat, hackers will hack with or without Sony's help.If you want to play fair you can find some people that share the same phylosophy everywhere, both PSN and Live.

      with all the CFW advancements, is going online the only purpose for the PS3? i know it's good to play and share with other people. what i am proposing is that if going online to play against others is the sole purpose, why not just put our heads together and create a site that allows everyone to be online without having to go thru sony. If we want to be on our own island, we might as well make it as close to paradice as possible.

      That is exactely what happened with the Nintendo Wii,

      Everyting the current firmware was decrypted, Nintendo released a new update.

      This when on until hackers could not decrypt 4.3 and so just gave up.

      Looks like sony are trying a similar tactic, with constant updates, however the keys are already out so any update can be bypassed easily.

      And sony cannot change the keys via firmware updates, they need to change the keys on the motherboard and then start distributing the new consoles

      Why don't you find out for yourself? Instead of asking questions that 95% of the people here wouldn't do without confirmation from the devs of the CFW.

      Its all the same questions, Can you do this when updated to 3.56 oh and can you do that then this and blow a bubble with bubble gum whilst eating a carrot at the same time? Just be patient and the NEWS will come sooner or later.

      We all need to remember, CFW Is cool especially when playing a backup of your fav game online. But theres no point asking questions when no one is 100% official on any answer!

      I would assume to those needing to go back down to 3.55 from 3.56, the easiest method would to be to format the HDD from a PC to be sure, then have Sony format with the official 3.55 firmware, then re-install the CFW for 3.55. Yea you may lose all your stuff, but you should have thought of that before you jumped the gun and did the 3.6 update anyways.

      your message is very vague at best. please explain who "they" are. understand that people are just passionate about their gaming as parents are passionate about their children doing good in school. i know where you're coming from but there are alternative ways of saying it without calling people "idiots".

I will stay logged in now untill the new 3.56 CFW is released. I am currently on 3.55CFW kmeaw on as ps3slim 2004b if i can help anyone by remaining online let me know.

      Agree, plus Wii's updates don't add anything and they can be software patched to enter online without any update so there's no point in devs making any move to decrypt anything, it's not that they can't, it's that it would be a waste of time...
      They need to do a PSN emulation service (X-link Kai is useless to games that have no LAN support which is the majority of PS3 games).Then Sony will be really screwed because the last spare money that Sony made proffit off PS3 (it seems that Sony spends all of them in lawyers suing Geohot and failOverflow team at the momment, yet another smart move by Sony) will be spent, guess where?... suing the creators of this service...

      yeah i haven't updated yet though. going to stay signed in untill it is fully confirmed working....so you updated to 3.56OFW from kmeaw 3.55 and your backups(multiman, GAIA) and PSN is still accessible and working faultless??

      Well, I'm going to just downgrade to 3.55 when I want to emulate and stuff, (Im too lazy to do a DNS bypass), so I can use geohot's again or just use geohot's next update after he deals with all this legal BS.
      (at least It did not brick my console or get rid of the packaged files I already installed when I updated :P)

      I thought the hackers had the MASTER KEY??? So why would Sony even bother with the fw updates? As what their doing should be illegal since there in court just because of this reason. They shouldn't be able to make any changes as long this case is open and no judgments have been made. Anyways DNS trick is working for me as well, but probably not by tomorrow. I'm running Kmeaw.

      Update: Attention all you running custom firmware and for whatever reason have decided, Im going to upgrade to OFW 3.56. Well you should hold that thought and restore to OFW 3.55 first. There are reports circulating that my PS3 no longer turns on after updating to 3.56 from a custom firmware. In other words: your console may end up bricked. I would restore to OFW 3.55 and wipe everything off the HDD first (from the Recovery Menu).

      Theres no reason to wipe everything off of the harddrive if you update to the official 3.55 first. People are saying its just the firmware that causes the bricks. So as long as you go from 3.55OFW to 3.56 then you're fine. Hands down.

      OmG people are you really such addicted to the PSN that you cant wait 1 day without trying to Update/Downgrade/DNS...... Just wait a bit and you will see that you can play like you did before without risking a Ban or Brick.

      KaKaRoToKS has cracked it and gotten the keys for the new firmware 3.56 in a matter of hours
      To quote:

      btw, its easy to find the new keys.. I might write a script for that.. in the meantime: ps3utils/selfdiff 355/*/*/lv1ldr 356/*/*/lv1ldr
      Just got home, found the application keys while on the bus, now also pushed to github.com/kakaroto/ps3keys enjoy!

      KaKaRoTo is not the same dev as Waninko... At least, I never heard of a CFW of KaKaRoTo :S

      Hope the CFW for 3.56 is gonna be "simple" tweak, coming from 3.55 CFW knowledge. These firmware updates of Sony are only minor countermeasures, knowing the PS3 is wide open.

      Well done to KaKaRoTo. Now question is when will someone create some homebrew that plays any and all video codecs to be played by the ps3?! This is one of the main things I want and was hoping someone would have done it by now.

      has anyone tried to downgrade this using KaKaRoTo's downgrader that he released for 3.55?

      IIRC this was 3.41 but updated to identify itself as 3.56, so surely you could downgrade using the same PUP?

      Sooo what benefits you get for being on 3.41? Pretty much nothing, so why are you "SO" glad?

      Anyway new cfw will be available in few days most likely.

      I did not update to 3.56 but for some reason, none of my backup managers loads my back up game now.

      Did it works yesterday? If not, reinstall your launcher, reboot the ps3 and see. Worked 4 me. Do that without @ connection to be sure.


      Something else, the DNS trick is maybe a technic from sony to see who the hell has a weird ps3...Maybe i'm saying ****, don't even know where those DNS are and who control them.

      Im running the exact same setup as u!! No update, (still got Kmeaws 3.55 XD) and the latest Rogero 7.9c.

      Blck Ops never actually ran for me, i just got black screen, but this isnt an issue as my BD Drive does load BLOPS.

      But Fifa 11 is running fine for me.. My BD Drive doesn't load Fifa 11 but thankfully Rogero is handling the task seamlessly.

      I think its your ps3 mate. Try rebooting or re-install Rogero.

      Hope this helps..... xD

      You can't! There are no downgraders, all you can do is wait for the v3.56 CFW. Why would you update anyways, what do you mean "didnt know about the DNS thing" what does that have to do with anything? Do you only play online games? The DNS thing only works for a few days after the new firmware release anyways, it's the same every time. I suggest you turn off auto-updates or if you did it your self, don't be a dumb a$$ and read the forums first!

      If you want to use PSN (PS Store, online games, netflicks, ect...), you are not forced to update unless you have your PS set to do so automatically....then it will turn on by it self and update. Personally I think the PS Store sucks anyways and I don't play online games. All the store is good for is demos, but those are just 15 minute teasers....I'll just watch them on youtube. So for me it makes no sense to update since I spent the whole day backing up 21 games on my 640gb HHD.

      I might consider updating if no one can figure out a spoofer by the time Shadow of the Colossus/ICO comes out.

      I'll hand it to Sony...

      If they did remove the USB system firmware update method, that solves a lot of issues right there. People who updated to 3.56 will need to find a new way to mod the PS3, *unlikely* or live with it officially *fixed* as Sony would call it.

      Providing it works the way Sony wants it, they don't have to ban anyone; they pretty much hurt the impatient hacksers in one update. They likely will start shipping out PS3s with pre-installed 3.56 firmware. And they get to wait to see what the scene does next.

      Hands down, Sony isn't as dumb as I thought. At least they ain't banning people off PSN yet.

      Apparently you didnt read that the keys to 3.56 have already been found.........actually hours within the first Sony updade...........I suspect, but obviously do not know that a new 3.56 cfw is imminent............Im looking forward to it

      I'll bet you anything the next move, which I'm not sure why they didn't already do it, would be to remove "install via storage media". Because personally, I went from OFW -> KaKaRoToK's cfw -> geohot cfw -> ofw -> WuTangRza -> geohot -> ofw -> Kmeaw -> ofw -> WuTangRza -> geohot all in a day and never once had to use recovery mode. I have a Japanese launch slim. By the way, the reason I went to Kmeaw was to load dead space extraction since it's not signed and to check it out, not sure about everyone else but Kmeaws CFW sucks....bad! My PS3 froze about 10 times just doing normal stuff. WuTangRza + geohot-jb using Gaia v2.05 have been 100% stable and I have tested 21 backups and all of them work flawlessly.

      Sorry I got a bit off subject.

      Actually I did read that, what you don't understand is, for THOSE that were impatient and updated to 3.56, its rumored that they took out of the System Update, the USB firmware install.

      So if you already have the official 3.56, and USB install is no longer there, how are you going to install a CFW? That was my point.... If you still on 3.55, then yes it will still work as you will still have the ability to install firmware via USB

      They took out recovery mode USB install, not normal update. but like I said, I never once that to goto recovery to install any CFW on my slim.

      Apparently you've been out of the loop. The PS3 were/have been already made public by Geohot. Within the first hour of Sony's 3.56 release, kakaroto had it cracked (As already stated SEVERAL times, just so no one thinks I'm taking away from them, by posting this). https://github.com/kakaroto/ps3keys, for the latest update.

      MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

      just been leaked in IRC, need testers!

      P.S not 100% on this one, up to you to take the risk
      This is FAKE! Stop the stupid rumor before it gets out of hand.....read the rest of that post on psx-scene. he is a little punk that masked OFW 3.56 with update name 3.56 - evilnat. The jack-a$$ who is claiming to be EvilNat, says all thought out the forum "I am Evilnat"...anyone with a handle capitalizes the random letters the same everytime. Plus if name on psx was like nathen_r32_blahh.

      So after 5 pages of getting bashed the kid say "I have decided to stop working on my CFW for now, and have deleted the megaupload file".

      Are some people on this site actually retarded or are they just trying to be funny?

      Why the hell would anyone want to update to 3.56 without knowing what these new security patches actually are is beyond me... Something tells me it is a little bit more than just revoked NPDRM + new keys, and just because you have the keys does not mean 3.56 is automatically hacked yet.

      Wake me up when a game actually requires 3.56+

      Are you a Dev? Probably not since you updated to 3.56 and asked how to install OFW 3.55 again. Trust me wait for the people that now what they are doing to use those keys. They are not like normal physical keys that any idiot can pick up and put in a door, they are for programing.

      Hey guys, just woke up and made an interesting discovery. My PS3 doesn't ask me to update. It says i have the newest firmware. I even signed out of PSN and signed back in just to make sure. On the other hand my roommate's PS3 asks him to update to 3.56. We are both using the same (PS3_Custom_Firmware_v3.55_Backup_Manager_Patched_Wutangrza-kmeaw) CFW. The only difference is that i installed 3.55 via recovery method in addition to the CFW via recovery as well. My roommate installed them both just from XMB. Hope this info helps somehow. Right now im online playing black ops on CFW 3.55!

      I am on kmeaw CFW 3.55 installed via recovery mode. When I signed on to my main account I was asked to update to 3.56 and can't sign into PSN unless I update. So, I'm using the DNS trick atm.

If there are any unfortunate bodies that was banned from Black Ops after inputting the DNS, can you please confirm. And sorry the bans, if there are any.

      Maybe your using the DNS trick and probably forgotten about it, the DNS trick prevents Firmware updates from prompting to update, thus allowing you to sign-in to PSN. That's most likely your case.

      There is no wutangrza-kmeaw, which one do you have wutangrza or kmeaw? I can't see why that would matter that you installed via recovery!?! You are playing a back up or original online? Maybe you have auto-update on and are really on 3.56

      To be safe, I installed my original firmware then updated to 3.56 - it didn't brick my console. Just loaded up MW2 and the first game I entered was a hacked lobby, so 3.56 didn't do nothing about that!!!

      Why should it? Online game hacking has nothing to do with being able to run CFW's and everything to do with sad little people who get a buzz from cheating at games. There are plenty of ways to cheat in games with OFW and always have been.

      Ok, look guys. my version of CFW is kmeaw. I got it the hour it came out; back then it was called wutangrza-kmeaw because kmeaw just modified wutangrza's code and hence thats what my rar file is called. Anyway its just called kmeaw now. There is no DNS going on on my PS3. I just did an auto setup just to make sure no gnomes came in and changed anything on my ps3. Everything is legit; no DNS.

      Like i said i just did recovery for both firmware installs and it worked. For some reason when i was installing kmeaw through XMB, it would always say my firmware was up to date so to install it on top of OFW 3.55 i had to go into recovery mode. I first tried it on my roommate's slim and it installed striaght from the XMB, go figure. I tried it on mine and it was a no go.

      After i stop being lazy i will try my method on my roommate's ps3 and see if i can duplicate my findings through recovery OFW 3.55 and recovery CFW 3.55. Maybe its just my original wutangrza-kmeaw version; who knows. keep you posted.

      If 3.56 cannot be downgraded via USB storage, can't it be upgraded to a spoofed firmware?

      KaKaRoTo made a repackaged 3.41 build that identified itself as 3.56. IIRC 3.55 could be upgraded to that, and then downgraded to actual 3.41.

      Isn't the same possible in theory? Create a new package of 3.41 that identifies itself as 3.7 or 3.8 or 34.9 or whatever - won't that then ALWAYS be updateable from USB via the normal method?

      well...i was unable to replicate my findings. too many variables. his is a slim 120GB ps3, mines is a fat backwards compatible metal gear solid 80gb one. like i said, i was forced to use recovery mode to install cfw but the slim wasn't. i think there's a lot that's changed in the ps3. maybe someone else can figure out something so others can be like me and don't have to use DNS.

      i still have the file on my comp. cant find the original on ps3-news anymore, they seemed to have updated it. my file's name is PS3_Custom_Firmware_v3.55_Backup_Manager_Patched_Wutangrza-kmeaw.rar

      like i said, i wasnt able to replicate it on my friends slim. since you have 4 ps3s, maybe you might have better luck. maybe you have a fat backwards compatible one too. let me know your findings.

      yeah but if they did it be pointless for ppl who not upgraded beauce with cfw it can be writing back in so its only would affect ppl who has upgraded but thats there fault they know not to upgrade , and spoofing vai proxy is possiable

      You most likely are not getting an answer because there is no answer to give except that it still works fine on mine.

      I'm not taking the piss, but if it starts check the IP it gives and make sure you are actually trying to connect to that on laptop.

      This isn't right! sony is not stupid, why would they release a FW that can be hacked in a matter of a bus trip. I'm thinking here, that there is some filthy hidden code that collects data on our systems, and CFW won't change that, as we don't even know it's there. So it sends our logs, Sony sees "wow, this dude is using backup/CFW/homebrew! BAN!!!" and that's all folks, PSN over. Or as I heard they might even brick your PS3... that would suck big time, as I just bought it...
      Please, someone disprove me
      And sorry for my bad english, but I hope it's clear what I'm afraid of

      They cannot install malicious code with the sole intent on bricking your system, but they can install code without your specific agreement of it as that is in the EULA, and if that bricks your console whilst running CFW then you do not have a leg to stand on.

      Basically make sure you do as suggested here and elsewhere for any and all FW updates and make sure you have removed any CFW first.

      If your FTP worked before you entered the new dns information, try resetting your dns to your router ip, then when you are done xfering just re-enter the new dns work around and you should be fine.

      Just my 2 cents

      don't use unsafe dns adresses! Don't buy anything on psn using them as they can use phishing/dns spoofing/dns poisoning...

      If you use these dns servers you have to know this, if they want they can theoretically redirect any website you view on your PS3 to another, they can use this to get PSN login info/credit card info!

      It'd be funny if they were using this a way to find out who is using CFW since obviously the ones using it would want to use the dns trick to get online. If they had legit consoles with nothing to hide, they'd update to OFW. I'm not going to bother with it and wait until a CFW for 3.56 comes out.

      I went from CFW 3.55 to OFW 3.56 with no problems. Recovery install OFW 3.55 then recovery install to 3.56 every thing that should work does, Officially.

      Note: Sony did not remove the, hold power button recovery option in 3.56

      I think i will stay OFW for awhile till things are more stable..

      so there will be no way to downgrade to 3.55 after 3.56 ? or what about people that buy new ps3's with new ofw on it they will never beable to jailbreak? Im sure someone will find away around it at some ponit. i read the license aggreement on the 3.56 on the 3.56 they made it very clear that it is prohibited and aginst the law to tamper with the ofw bla bla bla alot of other stuff getting to the point of dont do it lol.. good luck hope all goes with the new patch and hope there will be a way to break the 3.56 ofw.... if i take it offline and format system to orignal will it downgrade to what the system had when i bought it?

      1. Backup managers no longer work.
      2. Netflix didn't work until I uninstalled it and re installed it.
      3. custom firmware will not install duh.

      Also usb backup and recovery mode still work. Although even the Ofw v3.56 gives me an error in recovery or usb mode not allowing me to install that ether. Why you would want to I don't know but I thought I would try it. If this turns into a complete cat and mouse game idk if i want to play. maybe just let things be and except the ps3 for what it does officially and not what it can do I will weight a while and see what happens.

      Sony is actually using real random numbers to sign SELF files now, I heard, so nothing unofficial can be signed. Fortunately, it seems that they didn't change the updater keys, so it'd still be possible to sign updaters. I have a feeling that'd be patched eventually, though...

      They already do use a string of random numbers. Its the algorithym that they use to generate the keys is easy to do and every time they change it we can just redo the math problem. If you watch the 40 minute long video from 27C3 then it'll explain everything. Sony can't change anything about the keys or how the current systems operate. They can micromanage...but thats about it. All they can do is change it on new systems.

      SONY has finally closed the PS3. The whole "EPIC FAIL" was not that Epic after all!

      I mean it was pictured in a way that PS3's security was over for good. Fast forward a month and it seems PS3 is again a blocked Sony controlled System and no, I am not happy for Sony or anything. Just sad to see how the whole EPIC FAIL hype is crashing hard!

      OK bud, the Dev's got the keys an hour after the 3.56 ofw release, so I don't know what the hell you are talking about. You should show your support for people that put their ass on the line for all of us to have this completely bad ass computing system known as the "Playstation 3" that can now play homebrew and has the ability to back up our $60 investment to an external hard drive.

We can decrypt/encrypt the 3.56 files, but we cannot sign them, so it's not so easy." So there you have it, looks like Sony is getting slightly smarter with their protection.

      How big is this firmware? Surely Sony are pissing off the normal PS3 users by pushing useless updates all the time. Some people only have 1GB internet allowance per month. I wouldn't want to be wasting 60MB on fixing Sony's problem while getting no features in return. Is 3D blu-ray the only festure they added in all of the firmwares since 3.41?

      No guys, Sony can change the key for Homebrew, because it's a downloadable thing u need to re-dl homebrew and all is ok, but they cannot change game key (write on Blu-ray disc), if they do that, all old games never start.

      well if we cant sign it, we can still decrypt it and see whats changed, so we disguise 3.55 with the changes that identify 3.56, then sign it with the 3.55 keys. it would work if its not the actual keys that sign it, that identifies it with sonys servers, but guys we knew this would happen sooner or later, and it just depends how many devs really care about PSN.... so good so far..... we got Homebrew and thats what counts!

      I don't know where you got that quote at (I don't see it on his Twitter page), but even if that quote is legit, there's an easy solution; let unsigned SELF files run on a 3.56 cfw. Install 3.56 cfw, then you can run homebrew, just not on ofw.

      I dont think this stops CFW 3.56 from coming out. I think it just stops people from being able to jailbreak their ps3 with firmwares that are only signed with the ps3 root keys.

      Anyone who said that Sony couldn't stop you running a software exploit was lieing. However they can't stop you from downloading the update, patching it to allow homebrew & installing it on 3.55. They can make it hard to patch though.

      Did try to tell you all, there was a reason that the 3.56 update was released the same day as the TRO was granted.....

      GeoHotz new something, he even told Sony what to fix in his origional POC vid. "please dont fix this", I believe was his quote.....

      Now he can't tell us cause he's been gag'd..

      If you wanna play online and play future releases you gotta go legit. Sony knew all along they could fix it, they just needed to hush GeoHotz first...

Oh by the way, Hulu Plus don't work so?..

      I manually configured my laptop and my iPhone set to the DNS tricks that were given on YouTube from SMHappyTime2.... and they worked, it's a puzzle for me so any ideas how I can fix this?.. let me know! thank you!...

      Here are some interesting news from a german community (www.ps3-tools.de).

      Translated by Google:

      Meanwhile, shows the impact of the security update for the PS3 firmware v3.56 released yesterday in its wake. Sun seems to Sony with the new firmware the Ban-hammer on "Call of Duty: Black Ops" hackers oscillate.

      Once a player is recognized as a hacker, a message appears (see picture) that says that the console has been banned permanently from the "Black Ops" servers. The official "Call of Duty" forum currently the messages pile up of players who were allegedly wrongfully excluded from the game.

      Update - Remote Code

      As Examiner reported, Sony has installed the update a remote mechanism that allows them to access the PSN on the console. So the PS3 can not only foreign software (homebrew and custom firmware) searches and Ergenbis be sent to Sony, Sony will also allow it to run any software on the PS3 and possibly even rewrite the firmware or the like.

      Sony is watching you!

      Sony could probably see what you were running through the PSN even in 3.55, they are not allowed to do anything about it though. In most countries backing up the games isn't illegal. The only action Sony can take is ban your console from PSN -so what?. Bricking it is highly illegal aswell. Anyhow, if you login to PSN with a CFW you're kinda looking for trouble

      And for the people above saying "the scene is dead" and crap like that they're either totally new to such stuff or working for SCEA...nothing is unhackable; I think that has been proven more than once and especially not the one and only console that has been hacked to the bone up to now.

      If this was all just about home brew, then Sony might have looked the other way. But everybody was determined to pirate, and try to make game hacks, so Sony had to do something.

      I was happy with just the emulators, I don't feel the need to pirate, and I'm not some lame cheater with no cod skills.

      Sony have always been able to see what your running, that's long been established....

      And the console has not been exactly hacked to the bone, it is also well known that both GeoHotz and fail0verflow held back on certain info knowing it would enable piracy which they both claim to be against....

      Sony Dev's are not a bunch of dunder heads, they have the same access to files/tools/codes released by hackers, they have therefore been able to see exactly how the system was broken, what it was that Geo and friends held back and how to use that against the hackers to fix the breach.....

      Hackers as clever as they are, are not infalable, notice how none of the renound hackers have come forward and said that they have a solution in the making....The only thing we know is they can De-crypt and re-pack but they can't sign.....

      Like I said Sony are not stupid, there was a solid plan....Get the TRO...keep the with held info off the internet and release the 3.56 security fix....

      The problem to begin with was fail0verflow not diggin deep enough and getting all the keys while they were there and still stating that the system is wide open - yes, some people could have used it for piracy, but then some people could create huge open-source games, others might have created social communities, and others would use it to heat up their room in the winter - point is, endless options.

      Of course that is their perogative and I thank them for what they did do.

      What remains unclear to most, at least according to the comments i see on various sites, is that the recent lv1/lv2 peeks and pokes are exploits, circumventing the system, which is still very much closed to us.

      The 3.55 and lower FW keys and signing tools only allow running small applications which may or may not use those exploits (emulators vs. backup managers).

      Now, suppose changing 1 byte in one lv1 function allowed mapping of memory in lv2 (to peek/poke), and they patched that up in 3.56..
      It is conceivable to find another loophole like that, since flukes1 was literally poking functions at random to see which will give him access without crashing etc.

      But they have also changed Keys to use random numbers (if you've seen fail0verflow's presentation, no more "return 4;").
      Finding 1 such key would take a little while, namely :

      "Breaking a symmetric 256-bit key by brute force requires 2^128 times more computational power than a 128-bit key. A device that could check a billion billion (10^18) AES keys per second would in theory require about 310^51 years to exhaust the 256-bit key space."

      That's 3,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Years.

      So in my view, breaking that would require a massive networked infrastructure such as the Folding@Home, with JB PS3's, GPUs, CPUs, hell, everything any user can contribute doing these calculations 24/7.

      The more likely option would be for one of the talanted people in the scene to find a new type of exploit, cicumventing the need for new keys and allowing the use of old ones instead.

      And of course people forget that Sony actually has the source code.
      Whatever hacks, exploits and tricks we may find with a lot of time and effort, they can locate and fix or patch extremely quickly - despite what has been said - again, hacks, exploits and tricks - not legit signing tools and keys.

      People flame Geohot and fail0verflow because they said there was nothing Sony could do, and they were right, Sony can't do a thing to change some of the hardware dependant algorithms without changing the hardware - however while all of the software hadnt been hacked to be fully accessible with all keys of everything, Sony can still shift stuff around enough to at least make it very hard to re-hack.

      Just my 2 cents i guess.

      Dude, dont just assume that everyone on here is trying to get something for free. I use my PS3 to run back ups. But the reason i do so, is my PS3s BD Drive has decided it doesn't like to load games anymore. ( Once the initial loading issue has worked, it runs games fine ) And because of this the only way i can play my 45 COD: Black Ops or 30 Fifa 11 on my 250 PS3. Is to re-inser the disc 40-50 times, or buy another 250 PS3 or give Sony 9,999,999 to fix it..
      Or just play my backups.. be abit more open minded dude.

      I think that sony will not ban people. They will continue going on with firmware updates to separate themselves from cfw consoles. I believe that all games ps3/xbox/wii will start having a code to play multiplayer on the back of the original game manual. Or you can buy the code for $10. This way the game developers will at least get something for all their hard work. So download games all you want but to play online your gonna have to cough up that money, also continue to fight against sony's firmware updates.

      You are really not reading the posts are you.....and even if it was just a matter of re-hacking (easier said than done) what's the point, half the attraction is online gaming, the first thing a person asks when installing a CFW is "can I play online".... bans and/or no copies on PSN is exactly what Sony are trying to achieve....if a game can't be played online or updated to the latest patch ( and I think patches will now carry security checks to check FW version) how many people will bother running a pirate version.....In 6 months time when OFW is 4.56 and new games require you to be running this OFW you'll reconsider....!!

      People want everything up to date, the latest patches, DLC etc...so blocking the CFW will eventually bring people back to OFW...

      Sorry to be rude and insulting levis, but get a life. Since when has a hacker been to blame for what some idiot does with his software?

      I really think all the ones who are blaming the hacks/exploits as the sole reason for Piracy should take a step back and consider that the devs are NOT standing over everyones shoulder and forcing them to commit the crime of pirating games. That IS down to the individual!

      Ps... If the ban is just for CFW then why are you bleating? It affects noone that has OFW, or are you saying you use a CFW and are now sulking that you cannot run your 'backups' online?

      lol are you an idiot? this has NOTHING to do with sonys firmware updates, these bans were TREYARH BANS issued to people who did the 15th prestige mod on ps3:
      like usual its just a ban from black ops servers NOT PSN

      YouTube - PS3 Black Ops 15th Prestige Mod & 99 Million CoD Points Tutorial In Description [HD]

      people with cfw who didn't mod black ops can still go online on black ops.

      NO ONE has been banned for cfw. and i doubt they will ever ban us from psn, they would have to spend time & money protecting it, psn is free, they wont even give psn users in game party chat or a decent online menus for free lol. what sony has & will always do is just release updates to try to stop homebrew, just like this update.

      THIS IS AWESOME, FINALLY 10th prestige glitchers started getting banned. I hope Infinity Ward do the same.

      I play BO on kimeaw on Internal HDD, I dont get banned.

      anyway didnt treyarch mention before BO comes out they will monitor their server for Glitchers/Hackers/Cheaters. If you go on COD forums people saying they just got banned without doing anything, but I dont think so. Serves them well now.

      MW2 was ruined because of this faqqots, I dont even know why they cheat online? I know most of them are kids, but still I hope they learn now.

      on topic, seems like all key repo has been shutdown including Kakaroto's. Sony is really trying to stop the scene.

      We got our foot in the door, why not branch off the OFW to modified custom firmwares with plug ins to re-enable psn, and spoof the current firmware, mac address, and however they calculate the systems info.... Also why wouldn't you be able to take the old firmware pkg and inject to new firmware files into it and re-sign it? Either way I call for a plugin menu like the psp has.

      For all I know none of what I stated is possible...other than the branching off with cfw....

      But then 3.57 will be out eventually (to fix that HDD swap bug). Eh, well, 3.57 probably won't be too much different from 3.56.

      That's what I'm thinking (unless they have two accounts which makes no sense). Here's fail0verflow's real twitter account:
      http://twitter.com/fail0verflow

      The other one has only 300 something followers where this one has over 21,500 so I have no doubt it's the real one.

      The scene is no dead. Xtreem has a 3.56 cfw but he hasen't released it yet. But i know he Will and is Sony makes new fw we Will hack it.

      BTW Matheus (dosen't know how to spell it told KaKaRuTo way to run backups without lv2 syscalls. It would be run uppon lv2 so if someone makes it we Will be able to play backups on almost every FW.

      They removed the update because it was bogus, it originally said cfw for 3.56 was out because it was on failoverflow's twitter, but they quickly realized it wasn't his account and removed the update. If they didn't the thread would've been flooded by people wanting to get back online.

      I think sony put a temporary restraining order on him anyway so I doubt he would release any custom firmware unless it was anonymous.

      They say its done but it can't use backup managers yet. They also want to test it before releasing to the public, which makes sense. Sony apparently added an HDD scanner so they can see what is on our HDDs. Is that even legal? Even for legit users, they could spy on pics/vids and whatever else.

      However, Sony is not telling you that the update scans your HDD and sends the information back to them. So technically you didn't agree to that.

      That is scary. People threw a fit when software applications and game software used DRM to do the same thing, but because Sony does it, it's okay? I doubt this will fly for very long. I hope someone brings this to the law, as its pretty much blackmail to use PSN at this point. Give us permission to watch everything you do, and we let you use our online service. Ya no, still invasion of privacy; whatever there reasoning is and I can't see that piracy is a legally valid reason for doing this.

      Hell think of this for a laugh; when Sony brings out Xperia Play *aka PS Phone* and someone jail breaks it, what they gonna do? It's legal to break handsets.

      As stated so many times before, be careful about this dns server. you do no who owns the server and if and what extra information they can get from you.

      eg if you buy somethign from psn with a credit card, they can log your card details etc etc.

      Is there a way to spoof newer firmwares whilst still being on CFW 3.55 KMEAW?

      I beleive when KZ3 comes out Sony's OFW will be on 3.60 or newer as 3.60 is supposed to add cloud based save system to all PS+ members.

      I plan on buying KZ3, but I want to back up the disc to my external HDD just like all my games and want it to run, that'll be hard if we're stuck on CFW 3.55 and the game has the 3.60 or newer OFW on the disc.

      I went official for now; screw it for now. I believe in what the scene is trying to do, and I'll still follow up on it, but right now Sony is taking steps a bit too far. I want to see if a legal battle ensues out of this, so for now I went back to OFW.

      It may have been pointless, I tried to take as much steps as possible to cover my tracks that I even had CFW. At the end of the day tho, it's too risky right now to wait.

      I followed for hours that tweet where it was stated the CFW was gonna be posted "any minute". It never came, the guy decided to back out and not post it. Maybe they are testing, maybe they are quitting, I don't know. What I do know is right now, at the time of this post, Sony is winning this battle. It likely won't be for long, but if something more stable happens out of this, I can always buy another PS3 for home-brew testing later.

      Cheers to everyone on the scene working their buts off then and now, and thank you for an awesome experiment.

      I did the video, and yes, it worked as far as not constantly requesting an update etc. etc, and lets you sign in to PSN, but it wont allow me to use stuff like netflix or whatever? No biggie, I can use my xbox for that, but just wondered if there was something else I could do to get netflix to work after changing the DNS.

      This DNS trick to bypass 3.56 won't last. It works because OFW3.56 is not yet available everywhere in the world (I have a friend on the PSN who's still on OFW3.55).

      If you read through the posts, someone answered that Update 4 was initially what was thought a CFW posted for 3.56 but also turned out to be fake. Until a new thread is made, expect any random person saying 3.56 CFW out to be considered fake.

      3.56 already has some nasty new stuff init like a rootkit that used to come on sony cds but this is for the ps3 it can allegedly check the files see if your hacked edit files upload download etc

      and as of right now their is no 3.56 cfw any are FAKE so be careful

      If you really want to get back at Sony, pirate every game you can and play offline. This is the only, worry free solution, other than buying a second system.

      Im waiting until someone figures out how to play all games discless... you can get a used system with a bad blu ray lens for $75, i see them all the time. Ill hack that one and if its banned, so be it.

      If you mod a system and play online, theres always gonna be a chance to get banned.

      I apologize to this already. But I did not know where to put this question.

      So, I have a Mclaren wheel controller for ps1 (with centerconsole and pedals) it has option to emulate 4 different controllers (for different games for ps1).

      Can I use it to control ps3 games? I have a ps1/2controller adapter for pc (usb), does that work with ps3?

      cloud based saving protocols, is like having your own online backup, where you can store saves and all that stuff instead of storing on the machine you store it online, more ways for sony to track you down, i guess the rootkit installed on 3.56 isn't enough eh...

      Can I put something to you please?

      I have an original launch date PS3 which I love & I genuinely have over 70 games which I admit most I no longer play, but the ones that I do I have to admit MUST be played online, I cannot think of a single game I have that I play offline only. I am really interested in using CFW for one reason only & that is to install them all onto a hard disk just like in the days of my original XBOX. I have no interest in downloading games as I am a bit of a collector/hoarder so would continue to buy them. My question is this.... I am thinking of buying a second PS3 to install CFW and install the games I play regularly onto a nice big hard disk & also use my same PSN sign in as my original PS3. now SHOULD I get banned, do you think it would be the console or my PSN account, especially if game saves are going to become cloud???? Any thoughts anyone would I be wasting my money??

      No it wasnt at him. It was at everybody else who adds absolutely 0 to the topic at hand, and whines like babies about cfw.

But I have had a good look around this site which is why I posted my question about buying a 2nd PS3 here, and it does appear that the good people far outweigh the beggers so am looking forward to a long membership here hopefully! Lets hope that some of the members here realize that what these people do is for non-profit assistance to the rest of the world, lets give them some space and be VERY grateful for what they achieve.....

      Hey new guy here. Why do you say you won't be able to use Cloud based saves? Sure you can connect to Sony's personal server where saves could be located but what's stopping you creating your own place to store the saves in "The Cloud"? I'm not a pro-hacker like a lot of these lovely people who are allowing me to Homebrew but I'm pretty sure if anything you'll be able to create some online space to send saves by other means that will eventually be created by someone. Then if you do have a save fail you can just connect to your own personal cloud and take it ^-^

      I am VERY confused.
      I am on 3.55. When I was on 3.41, I used PSGroove, but then I updated to 3.55 and didn't want to jailbreak again. I am currently on 3.55 and have never jailbroken on it. Since 3.56 is out, I went to System Update, but it says
      "Latest Version of System Software is Installed"
      But I am on 3.55. Also, my PSN still works. Playstation Store and online games work, but I am NOT JAILBROKEN and am on 3.55.

      Any ideas why?

      NEED HELP ASAP!! Well, my friends Phat 80 GB PS3 yloded right after the 3.56 update or so we think yloded. So we took it apart refluxed the chips. He also bought a new 1 TB HDD and we got the new hdd installed fine, booted the ps3 and it asked if would like to format. We said yes. It went real quick and now it came back to the XMB and it showed his name, and all of his old files, but we never once did a backup. It also showed the new 3.56 update. So where does it store this information to reinstall it. BIOS, CMOS?? So now what we've done was went into system settings and chose format and it told it 57 hours and some change. Well it's been running for an hour now and it still shows 1%, (like it's froze up). Is this normal. Can someone call me and him at 281-948-3264 (CST). He's gonna try going back to 3.55 and jailbreak. Also before the chose the last format i spoke of previously we chose restore back to default settings, and then it asked us would be like to format. We also have unhooked from the Internet as well. All help would be appreciated.

      I just read over psx-scene, that a second version of this ofw has been on the wild..



      Sony has today released a second version of 3.56, which claims to fix problems with users when using an upgraded harddrive in the console.
      This update is similar to the 3.41 second release, where the version number is the same but the code is different.

      I remind you it is not recommended to update to 3.56, as this will stop ALL hope of homebrew running on your PS3!

      So how do we goto back to 3.55? We have tried reformatting through recovery mode, and it automatically installs 3.56, and when we tried to goto FORMAT from the xmb it stated it was gonna take 57 hrs and 27 minutes, but it stuck on 0% for over an hour and half. So how do we force it stop the 3.56 update and do a full format (RAW) and leave no records of any sony firmware updates?

      Well, like i said earlier. It wasn't my ps3, but my friends. It hangs up on the format option and freezes. We tried another route. It might mean something to the hackers and developers to check into. When we went into the recovery menu and tried a sys update via storage media device it just searched and never found anything either with OFW nor CFW, but when you go to update from the xmb option it and choose storage media device when i put ofw it didn't find anything, but when i put in the kmeawcfw it picked up and starting installing and it got about 80% then it said file was corrupted. So might mean something here. At least I'm still running 3.55 cfw(kmeaw) and playing on the psn as well with bypass dns trick still.

      yo we knew how it worked since 3.15 every time a new cfw came out a new ofw followed in days every site i visited in those months warned it wasnt going to be long before sony found a way to stop or at least halt it for a while. these guys work their tails off for free to give us stuff for free and even take crap from noobs who cant do it themselves. so basicly we need to appreciate these guys and gals and stop pissing them off before the hack scene die from us cryin instead of sony. incase u didnt know it wouldnt be hard for these guys to say to hell with the masses and create their own network that was noob free! then u wouldnt even know about a jb or cfw lol
