• Updates follow below. Alright Ladies and Gentlemen Fresh from Gitbrew we have a QA flagging tool in the form of a .pkg. This .pkg was coded by Glevand.

    Quote from Gitbrew’s Wiki, and Twitter:

    WIKI:

    What we have tested on so far

    • 3.55
    • 3.41
      • Run qa_flag.pkg if you hear a beep, it worked. If not dump your debug messages via udp_printf on linux and send to us to fix.
        • go to network settings (Do not enter it) and hit or hold
          • L1+L2+L3+R1+R2+down on the d-pad

    QA flagging is now done.

    Twitter:

    This does all the work for you as well. Also has Slynk’s 16 byte console specific code “tokenator” if i recall it’s name.

    Thanks Gitbrew and Glevand!! Also folks remember If it didn’t work, dump your debug messages via udp_printf on linux and send to us to fix.

    [Download QA Flagging Tools]

    Update 1:

    And a CFW/Other OS PUP (aka CFW/firmware)  arrives, which is confirmed to be working with QA Flag, to quote:

    Confirmed working with QA Auto Flag. Flash, Run, Reflash to your CFWs (kmeaw, waninkoko etc etc) adding support soon!

    [Download CFW355-OTHEROS++-SPECIAL PUP]

    Stay tuned to PS3Hax.net for your fastest PS3 scene updates!

    UPDATE 2:

    More details and questions answered have been posted by Gitbrew over at their wiki. First off, for newbs, this is not useful yet so don’t bother QA flagging the PS3 unless you have some experience - this is mainly for DEVs at this stage. It does not do anything useful that Kmeaw or Rebug CFW don’t currently do (and backed up games don’t work yet).

    Second those who wish to QA Flag your PS3, you have to have THIS CFW installed. The other Kmeaw/Rebug/geohot/waninkoko do NOT work yet. You can install the QA Flag CFW, then flash back to any other CFW without loosing the QA flag features.

    Mini Tutorial on how to QA Flag your PS3:

    1. Download this. (Also qa_extra_flag.pkg for advanced devs ONLY)
    2. Run qa_flag.pkg if you hear a beep, it worked. If not dump your debug messages via udp_printf_client on linux and send it to us.
    3. Reboot the ps3
    4. Go to network settings (Do not enter it) and hit or hold
    5. L1+L2+L3+R1+R2+down on the dpad

    Your PS3 is now QA Flagged.

    Mini Tutorial on how to REMOVE QA Flag from your PS3:

    1. Download this PKG.
    2. Run reset_qa_flag.pkg , If you hear a beep it worked. If not dump your debug messages via udp_printf_client in linux and send it to us.
    3. Reboot the ps3
    4. QA Flag is now set to default (Off) Your PS3 is now normal again.

    Also and 2 pretty important Tweets by Gitbrew that you should read :)

    Currently 3.56 and above can not be flagged. We don’t have the 3.56+ keys to do so.

    3.55 Downgrade to older firmwares, Now confirmed possible. Howto soon, QA flagging needed.

      They are still working on getting this 100%

      If it didn’t work, dump your debug messages via udp_printf on linux and send to gitbrew to fix.

      Alright folks more info... confirmed working with CFW 3.55 OtherOS++ Special

      1. It didn't worked for me either, I don't know how to dump the debug messages, I'm sure though it has something to do with my model (CECHHXX CW - pre-launch model)...
      2.What are the disadvantages of flagging your console? It sounds kind threatening the fact that you cant remove it...

      you need linux to dump your debug messages and you would need linux to remove the flag

      Thanx, yeah I know what you mean, I just find it kinda complicated...
      Also if I'm not wrong, this -could- lead with some tweaking to forcing your PS3 play games in a desired (non-native) resolution, like let's say 1024x768 or 800x600.

      Just a small question, because some said it's not possible to play PSN games now...
      an i thought Mathieu said something like he doesn't want to post it because this will open the console only for piracy...

      is it possible now or not?
      Because there is a nice small option called:
      ,,NPDRM Debug " which can be turned ON or OFF
      si what's the meaning of this? in the Ps3 dev wiki is this option listed but without any description....

      Piracy has sweet FA to do with PSN apart from you may be using a pirated game on it.

      Once you update to otheros, you have to hold the buttons down. It don't matter what order you hold them. As long as it is the button combo. I just went back to kmeaw. It's still works.

      If QA Flagg is irremovable, it would be plausible to assume that once enabled, you could update to 3.66 without having it removed it, allowing you to upgrade and downgrade at whim. How else would sony be able to test security measures in firmware on the same console? throw it out each time they couldn't revert? They use QA Flagg, that or my uncle's name is shirley

      your theory would be correct however this has been checked into and proven that it will not work on 3.6x.

      It will not work because the token we can create is not generated with the 3.60+ keys or the 3.65+ keys

      ive read that the qa flag will unlock all psn content. psone classics, dlc, psn games, and will run any game regaurdless of what fw or keys. like its future proof against any fw updates. this is what is so special about qa flagging over cfw ....this what math ment about it will just unlock more piracy and warez.

      works fine with otheros++special cfw ..


      i then went to ofw 3.55 & i can still qa flag... does this mean the qa flag is permanent?

      will that mean if i updated to 3.66 ofw the qa wil still be activated just a different button combo?

      use ps3brew com to search for the links to the psn content. install psn drm games first with the install package option then set drm to off

      Trophy wise can i change the hard drive and then flash etc? then after installing kmeaw back in keep all my trophys? Or does this required the same hard drive? (120gb slim)

      Has anyone on kmeaw tried running there back up again after this? Any problems with kmeaw or gaia or multiman? What about the emulators?

      Thanks man it definitely worked except when I try to downgrade i get an error. I know that the QA flag doesn't support much but I thought it at least did downgrading. guess i'll have to use a dongle

      Quote from Psgroove Member "damanptyltd"

      QA flagging Mode is an untouched retail FW, that has been QA Flagged as a DEBUG concsole. This allows mainly the disabling of the security features that prevent piracy, but also removes many other restrictions and allows a long list of new debug options to the PS3 menu. It also appearntly unlocks new features, although this isn't comfirmed Downgrading is also possible in QA flagging mode. Its pretty much CFW + REBUG on a clean copy of FW with no violations of sony's TOS. QA mode stays EVEN after updating.
      i don't know if it's true, but wouldn't that mean PSN Games + DLC 0.o?!

      One Big Question is, can Sony see if i have an QA Flagged Console and kill it or ban it over the internet?

      Reply to the BAN section of your question.

      I don't know but i have yet to meet someone who's console has gotten ban either on CFW or OFW.
      Remember what they said about those Sp-Int and Prod-Qa servers and all their DANGERS? nobody got banned for using those either as far as we know so...
      i don't know what to tell you, that's just me.

      Just look back a little.

      well it doesn't have major advantages, i mean for every day use.
      but if you like to thinker arround install the new CFW and install debian.

      my status right now is 3.55 OFW qa flagged.
      i used rebug with otherOS ++ with debian installed grafs kernel, and qa flagged it then installed 3.55 OFW.
      so i am 3.55 OFW now Qa flagged, but i am going to install the new pup soon, while i wait for a rebug team release, if one ever happens.

      yes this is the advanced QA flagging.

      so you did it it the hard way i can just do it the easy way

      install the cfw other os pup then install the qa flag pkg do the keypress and then reinstall the cfw other os pup over it ???

      and i should have other os 3.55 qa flagged ??

      Run on 3.55 cfw, if it beeps reboot ps3, go to network settings (do not enter) and do the code. should work, no OFW needed [/QOUTE]

      time to enjoy some QA flagging people
      Ok so i can get this straight , No need for OFW ,but has anyone tried on ofw ? Ok i am on OFW 350 .(1) I am going to install the ofw 355 .(2) I will flash it with the new CFW 3.55 OtherOS++ Special.(3) Then run pkg enter codes ,after it hopfully enables qa flag . (4) Then i will go back to ofw 355, then reflash to kmeaw 355 & QA flag will stay I had seen others say they had done this ? So am i on the right track here. PLEASE some 1 help a hax member out . I have read the steps ,it is a little confusing since it says---> ( Confirmed working with QA Auto Flag. Flash, Run, Reflash to your CFWs (kmeaw, waninkoko etc etc) adding support soon! ) This part is a mind twist , people are saying that they used special pup ,QA flaged ps3 then went back & flashed a different ITA CFW355 OR kmeaws CFW355 & QA is working 4 them . So what is up with the -->( Confirmed working with QA Auto Flag. Flash, Run, Reflash to your CFWs (kmeaw, waninkoko etc etc) adding support soon! ) If it already works with kmeaw & ITA after flashing with special pup ? By the way is the special pup++os is like other CFW with optional os support right ? we can just use it to QA flag then choose any CFW to flash it back ? I know lots of questions but,everyone seems to be having problems . So i want to get this on first try if i can...

      NO!! this will not allow you to get on PSN or play games requiring 3.60+!!! The QA flag will not stay past 3.56!! The NPDRM option does not allow you to warez psn games and DLC!! The NPDRM option removes YOUR psn games and DLC licenses making them unusable!!

      pretty sure a linux install is optional (some who knows FOR SURE can confirm/correct me on this) and it supports back-up managers.

I hope QA,in it is worth it ,as we are not able 2 reverse the QA Flag after it has been done... bY the way can anyone confirm what the CFW other os++ real name is , Is it Kmeaw 355 or leavland cfw 355...? I just want to know what is the name of my new CFW lol instead of CFW355-OTHEROS++-SPECIAL.PUP
      Your firmware will be OtherOS++ Special 3.55, that be it's name!!
      QA flagging will be reversible from gameOS as soon as glevand releases a app for it http://wiki.gitbrew.org/index.php/To:do as you can see the QA flag reverse app is on glevands's to do list. in the mean time QA flagging can be reversed if you use linux

      4 Real it is not worth it ?? This is why i am going to wait till 2morrow .This way i will see posts like what you are sayin + other opinions .. I Never jump the gun never 4 this reason non reversable ! That part i dont like about this option. I hope they figure a way to be able 2 create a QA flag Reverse .pkg .Just like a spoof by rebug O to QA X TO Undo QA. That would be the awesome so we dont get stuck with it if were not really able to make use of all of the extra settings...

      you install linux the same way you install for other systems! you install all those packages to resize vflash etc, and then use the boototheros++ to install it, install debian its your best bet, search for one of oozic's threads over here, its one that its translated to english by him, and has all the tools you need.
      btw rebug prep tool won't work for you here.

      what's that I hear? is that Sony crying? lol good works guys, you give hackers are great name by not violating computer systems you don't own, and freeing the technology that we do own to do everything it can. I admit I don't know what I can do with QA flagging, but I can't wait to install OtherOS++ and after reading the details on the CFW for this QA flag, it looks like it's given alot more flexibility to the end user.

      it has the rebug options! the debug menu you get on the QA flag is rebug menu 2 (CEX debug menu)
      the diference is that this one all the options work on rebug not every options is working.

      I get that too, but I have 2 other PS3's so since this PS3 is for hacking and doing whatever I want with it, I'm not inconvenienced. just wait until the de-QA flag is released. otherwise you can go out and try to find another PS3 with FW 3.55 or lower and use that as your main unit and hack your current one...

      I don't think people really understand qa flagging. Imo, people are jumping on this because they think it would help them either pirate or use psn with cfw. Either way, Im in school for programming so it helps me a lot. Bottom line, if you don't understand qa flagging, maybe researching it is better for you instead of installing it and asking 20,000 useless questions.

      So... This gives your PS3 a debug environment? If so then its a step in the right direction for devs. Hopefully this will entice more homebrew developers to this scene.

      I might check this out, if it can downgrade from 3.55 to 3.41 straight from the XMB. I actually haven't heard anything bout the downgrading side of things, mind you it's still fairly new in the public eye.

      I QA flagged my PS3, not for piracy, but because Sony doesn't want me too, I want atleast 1 of my PS3's to be a complete defiance to Sony's wishes my QA'd PS3 (thanks to the CFW mentioned in this thread) will have OtherOS++, has been QA flagged, it's blocked from communicating with Sony, and god willing if we should find out other hidden goodies in the PS3 firmware or other ways to give me more control over my PS3, you can bet I'll load that on my PS3 as well. I love that I have a PS3 with 3.15, a hacked to hell and back PS3, and a PS3 that is still on the PSN (and an xbox 360 so Sony won't be making any more money from me hehe).

      Sony pissed me off when they removed OtherOS, and I see CFW, OtherOS++, QA flagging etc... as revenge, even if Sony doesn't know I've done it lol

      thanks thelostdeathknight.
      The real question, which once answered will clarify things, is this:

      Is it the basic or advanced QA flag? Assumption being that its the basic which would be why allot of the "useful" options are non functioning.

      Flame as much as you feel is needed, i may even bother reading them, but the ps3 scene is the worst ever.... I remember being a n00b once... People helped me and encouraged questions. Long story short i did my own home-brew xbox mod chip (yes 29 wire, true home brew!) and the rest is history. Maybe its Sony that has scared the developers (otherwise and more correctly refereed to as hackers/crackers) but from here i can see that there is more to this than is being let on.... I dunno maybe its just me but the ps3 scene has always felt so dodgy and at the same time purports its noble quests are not for wrong doing.... Whatever...

      Truth is i gave up even pirating most games because free or not it still only got an hour or 2 of play... allot even less.... so its not even worth the BW these days but i truly resent that i cant buy a new game, that at least has a shot at being quality, and also use showtime for my mkv playback... Funny thing too the machine i spent the most on retail games was the xbox1... Had over 25 xbox originals by the end.... 25 out of the 300 odd i tried/pirated where worth money... the rest offended me for having even existing and the developer who released them should feel nothing but shame...... so homebrew and originals should be usuable to0gether, playing online? no thats just stoopid... I have a feeling this is entirely possible right now, today, but from the misguided sense of self preservation or just selfishness and arrogance coupled with delusions of grandeur, this info is being withheld from the greater community.. That is sad and is contrary to what i believe the ethos of all home-brew communities should be.... "Free information, free and fair use of equipment you own, and the ability to decide what you think is fair in terms of recompense"

      being i was a student at the time 25 game over the life of that system was a huge deal to me... I was proud to support those developers in the hopes of more quality work from them. My point is $$ all have a different value to each individual and so people should not judge those who do pirate because its the only way they can afford to use their expensive system.. Its only the ones who PROFIT financially from piracy that anyone has the right to judge...

      I just wish it was us Vs Them and not Us vs Them vs The average user...

      Respect to the old school... lets get some good midi music on a intro screen on the next "scene" release!

      Highlight your .pkg in the XMB menu under the Game option and press on your controller and hit the delete option.

      Hey, this is the simple QA flag, for the advanced, go to the gitbrew wiki and read the whole page and it will tell you how to get the advanced QA flagging pkg.

      h**p://7track.org/~glevand/public/qa_flag_extra.pkg <-- this is advanced QA. They spelled the pkg file name wrong on the wiki site, it's qa_flag_extra.pkg NOT qa_extra_flag.pkg

      are you positive because here are some twitter quotes from gitbrew about QA_Flag_extra and no where can i find proof for your claim

      We are testing different flags and tokens. Just use the normal one for now till we document the rest.

      the extra has a few other flags / tokens set... it's not for general use however.

      h**p://7track.org/~glevand/public/qa_flag_extra.pkg <-- this is advanced QA. They spelled the pkg file name wrong on the wiki site, it's qa_flag_extra.pkg NOT qa_extra_flag.pkg
      what does the advanced QA flag offer above and beyond basic? or more to the point is it anymore dangerous that basic QA flag?

      I think it offers downgrade options. How Sony normally downgrade consoles to a specific firmware. QA is simply Quality Assurance.

      man cant stop, i just keep sneezing!!.... always have been allergic to bull**** though so stand to reason.. ;-)

      jk... im sure there are good reasons for the whys and hows but i firmly believe now more than ever there is more afoot here than is being let on to... Me thinks he doth protest-ith too much.....tbh i would resent the **** out my work being used by "mod clone" houses profiting on ignorance and the general laziness of the populace these days... I understand for most "users" these days if it doesnt come pre packages and with a easy open top its too hard but some of us love it for the learning and sharing. Id rather spend $150 on the parts to make my own mod chip than pay $20 to get one from China... We do still exist we just usually dont bother to try and fight the deafening hum of the stoopid... I for one was happy to hear this could lead to a more open system, yes i mean PIRACY, and all the fun along with it and im devastated at the appearance that the "devs" have deemed themselves righteous enough to decide what i should or shouldn't be able to do with my system... as bad $ony imo....

      Just trying to ensure that all available information is made public, and not hoarded to only a certain few. Saw some errors and looked further, and I am aware of a few people (not saying you) are trying to steer people away from all of this QA flagging.

      I just want all "known" information to be available to everyone like I said. I wish people luck and hope they don't brick their consoles or mess up settings so badly they can't recover from. Information is free and should be kept as such, but I also understand the need to protect one's own butt from lawsuits.

      Sorry if my info was misinformation, just tired of conflicting answers and "lies" from people, my bad for adding to it if so.

      Developers should try to make a way to connect to a private network, redirecting our connections instead of getting connected to the psn.
      Im not a tech, but just an idea.
      That way we can all connect to that pirate network and play online.

      like those emulators we run in our computers, we can connect with others.

      Time, resources, money and a great legal team are needed for a private gaming network. Only option atm and probably ever is LAN play via XBSlink and Xlink Kai.

      This is only for devs, the normal end user should stay far away from this. Only proceed if you know what you are doing.

      until Gitbrew says here is the QA flag advance. people are best off leaving the .pkg thewhitetyger linked too alone
      Then why are people in this very thread reporting that the QA non-extra package is the advanced form of QA? When I downloaded and installed QA extra it brought up a debug menu similar to what Math showed on his video. A lot of the menu options that are listed in this thread are not what I have on my QA flagged PS3 since I went and installed that package anyways. Why the deception? No disrespect to ya TheLostDeathKnight, just wondering is all.

      But hold on... before you go rushing off and getting the extra QA flag package, for those who are wondering, no this QA package doesn't seem to do anything more (but somewhat less) than the original. I have to agree, if you are going to go ahead and QA flag your PS3, dont bother with the QA extra flag package. Might be able to find more with it rather than the extras package. I'm not sure, but I'll stick to the otherOS++ CFW type instead of kmeaw. Seems through the license agreement that it allows more than kmeaw could ever do, plus everything seems to be working the same way except //app_home/PS3_GAME has switched places with Install Package files.

      I will post Again!!!! This is the advanced QA flag! unless this (the PKG) is different than what we found, and its a simple flag, either way its not worth for most of you to install it, and ruin your CFW, stick with your CFW.
      And before you saying this has no use, or wahtever, maybe not for you, but trust me it does have great use

      Please calm down, I am not trying to make anyone upset or start a war, I am simply observing something different from the QA_flag_extra.pkg than what I have read what people are reporting about the first one. All I want is for as much information known to the general public. What they do with that knowledge is up to them. I simply wish to make sure that the scene doesn't end up in a civil battle. Seems like that's what $ony wants, so just trying to weed out all potential information hoarders. I will bow away and no longer post here. Please accept my apologies, pockets u know what the hell you are talking about since i have read over many of your posts. By no means am I trying to disrespect you.


      EDIT:

      Quote Pockets69: "I applaud your intentions a shame you come a bit to late , its civil war everywhere"

      (Only because I promised I wouldn't further post, this shouldn't count to the poster ahead of this post...) I have been around "Jailbreaking" scenes since the dumping of cartridge ROMs, and the ps3 scene I agree is by far the worst off, only because there are more people around with google finding quality sites such as this. I agree.

      Info on gitbrew twitter:

      1.http://7track.org/~glevand/public/reset_qa_flag.pkg
      2. Run reset_qa_flag.pkg , If you hear a beep it worked. If not dump your debug messages via udp_printf_client in linux and send it to us.
      3. Reboot the ps3
      4. QA Flag is now set to default (Off) Your PS3 is now normal again.
      and:
      Currently 3.56 and above can not be flagged. We don't have the 3.56+ keys to do so.
      3.55 Downgrade to older firmwares, Now confirmed possible. Howto soon, QA flagging needed.

      This thread is amusing, I would like to say can a moderator/admin update the thread with some Q&A's that have been repeated a dozen times? Sure there is no need to but it might help cure the slight thickness some users have here with not being able to use the browsers "Find" option - Or to simply scroll through some replys and comments on what is does and doesn't do.

      Does it allow 3.6x OFW to work? Yes - With the option of looseing your homebrew.

      Does it allow PSN? Yes - Update to OFW 3.6x - At your own cost

      Maybe have "Not best for the average PS3 user" or maybe "For Dev use only".

      None of this is needed, But, I'm sure it will quieten down some of the repeated questions that have been answered numerous times.

      Just a thought.

      Thelostdeathknight, mathieulh did say that QA flagging would allow for Warez but as usual not how.

      @ Ben Jeremy i hope this question to math is ok ?


      @ mathieulh
      - What are in your oppinion the benfits of a QA flagged ps3 ?
      - There must be a reason, why you worked on it in the first place?
      - I heard a lot reasons why it isnt good to QA flag the ps3, but why are you sitting on one, if there is no benefit?
      - And why does it lead to more piracy compared with 3.55 kmaew?


      - To be honest benefits over custom firmwares aren't that great, what QA flag allows is achievable on a custom firmware.
      - The reason I worked on it was because I didn't like how sony did something I couldn't do (And also because I was bored)
      - I am sitting on one because 1. QA flag requires crypto, which requires leaking keys which Sony would be too happy about 2. QA flag (indirectly) allows for Warez, I don't condole warez 3. It doesn't allow more than what is doable on a 3.55 cfw
      - I won't give more details on how to warez using the QA flag, sorry.

      let me answer you question with another question, can you go online with FW (OFW or CFW) 3.55 or lower? no? then you have your answer. all the QA flag does is create a set of option for developers.

      the answer is NO

      just go install rebug and be happy

      this can do nothing for you unless you just want to mess around and see what the fuss is about with QA which is nothing as rebug does 99% of it anyway


      QA is not for anything above 3.56 do you understand

      then allow me to answer, NO. how are you going to spoof firmware before it's installed? the firmware gives it's true firmware information to to the PS3 as a check so the PS3 knows it's an upgrade, and legit. if you're on 3.66 you're SOL.

      I understood your question perfectly fine. Trust me. I simply am tired of writing essays as to why people can't do the things which aren't even quoted as being possible, when talking about QA flags in general.

      I'm sure most of the people who understand this feel the same way.

      I just wanted to save you some reading, as you obv missed the answer in the QA flag thread as well as this one. No misunderstanding bro.

      QA flagging for OFW 3.66 will only be possible if we have the FW 3.66 keys.
      And we don't have them.

      You complain about me reading and then don't even read my question. I asked what would happen if you installed *ON 3.55* and then upgraded - if the settings would stay or not. I've QA flagged my PS3 and installed 3.55 OFW and I can still run the homebrew I had installed, as well as access the options. My question was if anyone had upgraded past 3.55 after QA flagging their PS3, and whether the settings disappeared.

      People like you and the ass before you really make forums like these seem entirely unwelcoming to new people. I asked a single question and you both responded with DERRRRR, DON'T ASK QUESTIONS!

      If you had spent a minute reading the thread you would know by now that QA flagging will not work past 3.55 becuase the QA flagging token we can create is not generated with the 3.56+ keys.

      Basically you upgrade and you have officially boned yourself out of back-ups, homebrew and the chance to use newer 3.56+ CFW when it comes out.

      AND TO THOSE WHO WONDER WHAT MATHIEULH MEANT BY THIS WILL CONTRIBUTE TO PIRACY....THE HDCP ON/OFF FUNCTION WORKS. Are you happy now?? now you know what qa flagging does to help you whiny pirates

      Let me be a kind of arbiter in this:

      I can see your point, asking a question doesn't need an unneeded answer. I often have the "this doesn't help at all" feeling when I ask as question and I get a "stupid" or "funny" answer.

      Now the other side: You ask a question if QA flagging 3.66 through/with updating is possible. What you actually ask is if OFW 3.66 is jailbroken..... If what you ask would be possible it would be front paged as soon as it is confirmed. Till then all CFW 3.56+ talk is not allowed here on the forum. That is why some forum members won't answer your question correctly.

      Now can everybody stop the flaming and go on topic

      Yeah, no. I never asked that. I asked if the QA flagging options would stay if you upgraded. Period. End of question. Nobody has answered this. All I've seen are people asking about if you could QA flag after updating. I want to know what happens if you QA flag first, then upgrade. It has absolutely nothing to do with jailbreaking 3.66 or a 3.56+ CFW.

      I don't know if there's a difference between generating the token and signing an EBOOT file. I don't know if one is just encrypting and the other is both encrypting and signing. If the token is just a matter of encryption, the token should work on higher firmwares, because the encryption we create for 3.55 is identical to official Sony encryption; only the signature is distinguishable from the real deal. This is not the same as asking whether we can do this once we're already upgraded. I know you can't install/run the QA flagging homebrew on OFW. I'm not an idiot.

      Lol everyone here is mad as hell, everyone needs to wait and let the devs work on this for a while and then we will see if it can be useful to average cfw users. also math stated what he ment about pircury. QA Flaging can enable WAREZ.

      You think that answers my question? Telling me that it's not generated with the 3.56+ keys is a given. What I CONTINUE asking is if the token will work on a 3.56+ firmware. These are two different questions:

      1. Is the token generated with a 3.56+ key? Answer: No.
      2. Will the token work on a 3.56+ firmware? Answer: Still unknown.

      You may think this is obvious, but it's more than possible that the two answers are not connected. As I mentioned in my previous post, if the token generation only involves encryption, not the fake signing, then its encryption is identical to Sony's and it should work with later firmwares - unless they've specifically blocked QA flag tokens generated with the 3.55 or earlier keys.

      So the question still stands, and I assume nobody wants to sacrifice a hackable PS3 to find out: If you QA flag on 3.55 and then upgrade, will the options remain? If your answer is coming from just speculation rather than experience, then you're not answering at all.

      I understand what you mean UN3rb1tch but the answer must be no, i know what your gettin at. Like why after you QA flag you can update to any firmwire under 3.55 and it stays but over its gone, like firmwire 1.20 must have different keys den 3.55 and it stays. Doubt Sony removed this already on 3.6*+. Does anybody know the answer and then alls good again lol

      Yeah, no. I never asked that. I asked if the QA flagging options would stay if you upgraded. Period. End of question.
      A QA flagged 3.66 machine = jailbroken for me, don't know how you can see it otherwise .... and again, that would be front paged right away if it was possible.

      If you were Sony and you have new keys, would you protect every part (also QA flagging/token) of the machine with them or only an already broken part?
      Right, every part that needed keys now needs the new keys. And once again, we don't have them.

      i think everyone in here is getting pissed because the same questions are being asked over and over.

      the answers are no no and no.

      if your not a developer then you really have no buisness installing this.

      Is that the case? Does the QA flag actually appear to be reset/cleared if you upgrade past 3.55? If so, then you've answered my question. Have people actually done this to see?

      For christ's sake!!! the Keys are the same from version 1.00 up to version 3.55 that is why you can downgrade and have it stay!! the keys we have are rev 0x01 (pre 1.0 -3.55)

      Exactly: If you can't seed the appropriate token for the firmware at hand (requiring that firmware's keys), then you can't use the QA menu.

      this is of no real use because if we dont have the 3.6x keys it is of no use, if we did have the keys then we could make CFW and we wouldnt need this sure it would help with warez and such but wats the point that is just piracy which i dont care about but either way this provides no benefit

      The problem with that is noobs see themselves as pros. And as for giving the answer right away, it's been in this thread + the original QA flag thread the whole time. In addition, this has been a "for devs" release since it came out. If you aren't a dev, or VERY knowledgeable about the topic of QA flagging, then don't be surprised when you don't receive a direct answer, because we are tired of giving that same answer out over and over again, and you were also warned it was a "for devs" release before doing it. If you can't handle it, don't do it. It's been said many times.

      @LuckySnake: Great news m8. Let me know how it goes.

      ok i think i worded that wrong sorry what im sayin is that lets say we did have 3.6x keys right, wouldnt it be easier to make CFW and use it rather than applying it to this, CFW= easier install to more people QA=more complications

      only joined dis site and I don't think I'm a pro, so i might just need a more helpful site with open minded peeps. Yes QA flagging is useless if you have cfw its a lot easier to just make cfw, that's all QA flag is like cfw.

      I see alot of people freaking out over this ? Everyone needs to relax ,why the rush we waited this long to see what this QA was all about. Now it is here, with a great CFW & .pkg ,making it so much easier to QA flag your ps3 .2 everyone who is losing there minds about this . Dont worry your ps3 is not going any were ,everything is here on site to know how it is done. Download the needeed files & read about it first. Then if you feal like this is for you ,go 4 it .Untill then RELAX ! I understand the wanting to know the unknown . Everyone who want 2 get the goods in life never rushes into anything..I think everyone who is fustrated needs to take a break ,relax,read ,then come back after you have cooled down ,then read everyons post that has valuable info .Then go from there I waited 4 this & i have everything i need ,it is just extra settings ++ so everyone needs to chill .... Be happy that this was a gift of a release 4 those who wanted to QA flag there ps3 ,B thankfull we even have a TUT here...( A person who is always in a rush, is a person who is bound to make a mistakes !! )

      Let's be honest with this peeps.

      There was Sooooooooooooo much hype put into this by people before it got released that anyone with an ounce on intelligence would have thought it was some MAJOR breakthrough involving opening up future OFW's.

      It may still be, but all it comes across as is a very slightly inflated baloon, and that includes to people who understand it fully as well as the ones who do not understand it at all. If I were wrong in that then there would be much less of the comments that it is only good for devs etc.

      As usual with the PS3 scene, it was hyped up beyond any reality because there is and has been from the beginning a "I am so much better than you" mentality with all this since the initial Dongle JB.

      It makes me laugh to watch both sides of the fence, the beggers for new >3.55 CFW and the 'devs' who to all intents and purposes say "this is above you so shut up peasant". I am happy to be a peasant btw, but noone, including my parents has the right to act as if they are superior to me.

      So to cut a long rant short, ALL of you stop acting like kids in the playground!

      Rant over

      the reset_QA_Flag.pkg was released about 12 hours ago
      1.http://7track.org/~glevand/public/reset_qa_flag.pkg 2. Run reset_qa_flag.pkg , If you hear a beep it worked. If not dump your debug messages via udp_printf_client in linux and send it to us. 3. Reboot the ps3 4. QA Flag is now set to default (Off) Your PS3 is now normal again.

      seriously, why are u guys so hyped about this? hate to break it to ya, but most of you prolly wont even get to use this at all for now..if your checking this thread, your probably on a 3.41/3.55 cfw already. As mentioned, this DOESNT DO ANYTHING A NORMAL CFW DOESNT DO, and it doesnt even enable backups and homebrew (for now atleast) and it DOESNT WORK FOR ANYTHING ABOVE 3.55s o yeah, now that thats outta the way.. for the love of God, try not to hurt yourselves flashing different FW just to get this and be disappointed and possibly brick your systems flashing back and forth (forgetting to flash back to OFW before CFW) and just wait for the devs to figure out how we can use this..thank you!

      they were being nice to the users that are curious and want to play with thier own PS3's, it may not be useful but it's better to release the option for all of the users than to keep QA mode locked up for a handful of users and making QA flagging as for mystical thing everyone wants, part of the reason the hype is here today is everyone wanted to QA flag once math mentioned it and now we can...

      Guys, I was able to downgrade from 3.55 to 3.41 via recovery menu, then I downgraded from 3.41 to 3.15 the same way. I tried downgrading from 3.41 to 1.30 but it kept locking me in service mode, so be aware if you don't have a dongle to get you out of that mode. The good news is YOU CAN GET OUT IF YOU'RE STUCK.

      QA Flagging is still available after the downgrades, but if it so happens that you're stuck in service mode and need to get out, QA Flag will still be there but all changes will be reset (for example - system update debug will be back off even if you had it on).

      UPDATE: Tried going from 3.15 to 1.30 via recovery menu, but no luck. Stuck in service mode.

      E3 Card Reader's getting quite the workout today.


      UPDATE 2: Just downgraded successfully from 3.41 to 2.50 (Hard disk database needed to be rebuilt). Also note, when I downgraded to 2.50 the qa flag options changed. Not all the options from before are there and one new feature I noticed on 2.50 qa flagged (Analog Output Expansion Feature).

      UPDATE 3: 2.50 to 1.90, no luck. Stuck in service mode. That's enough testing for now. BTW, 2.50 qa flagging doesn't have system update debug. at least not in the version we're using.

      It's like reading a comedy skit.

      Some of the comments like:

      " QA Flagging is MAINLY for DEVS"
      " No, this can't help you get off 3.56++++"
      " Is this a new CFW?"

      How many times can it be said?

      Someone should do a count and find out how many times these questions have been asked in this thread alone and post it on the front page as a counter.

      neither recovery menu or xmb allowed me to downgrade to 3.15,debug on or off i get error 80029c9 ,how did you do that?

      homebrews of 3.55 work on 3.15 with your ps3 ?or will you get errors when running them ?

      Im not saying everyone annelies,just most.Most definitely not trying to offend any of the helpful members.The endless repeat of questions is to be expected when news like this is posted.Let people look for the answer-if they were posted earlier.But the there is no need for the ignorant comments,wheres the scene spirit?This is one of my favorite sites for ps3 news,just hate to see so many people turning elsewhere because they feel alienated by jerks.Thx for bein a goodie annelies!

      I am rude! and i am fine with it! Ignorant? Not one bit you did register to post that message at least you could have been a little you know... more on topic! its not help or shut up! a forum is not here to help! a forum is a base of discussion! i am not obligated to help anyone, i do so because i want to, as most of the senior memebers and other mods do the same, they help because they want to, also the moaning part! no sir i do not moan! I *****, and rant! and i rant about one post wanderers that came in here, asking questions that don't make any sense what so ever, most of all posted in the 1st post, or already answer in the post above theirs which is ridiculous.
      Also people that come asking such questions wouldn't come out finding the next big thing just so you know...

      UPDATE4:

      Downgrade now available via qa menu, im not sure of the exact process, but its probably as simple as running the .pkg and updating through update manager (like you normally would, except you would be downgrading in this case).

      Links and instructions here, read carefully.

      Also for anybody wondering if QA_flagging.pkg or QA_Flagging_extra.pkg
      are the advanced QA flag. The answer is neither of them are. When Gitbrew was asked about the Advanced QA flag like Mathieulh had, they had this to say:
      We're working on it. Might take awhile though.

      Congratz..you were registered.>pats pockets on the back< Didnt realize that gave you the right to look down your nose at everyone.Son Ive been doin this since the cartridge days..we were never rude to newcomers.Thats how the scene grows,and people become interested.I didnt know anything at the start but I am quite knowledgeable now,as many of these "noobs" will be.Sorry if you missed the point of my original post.Thought maybe it would do some good,instead im getting treated like all the rest.How incredibly common of you.

      Can you guys stop arguing >.<

      strahd213 wants new members treated the same as senior members/moderators. I'm all for that.

      Pockets69 is defending moderators/senior members and admits to being rude but still, Pockets69 is one of the most helpful and respected users on the site and I admire that.

      strahd213, new members are respected, but treated "differently"(?) because perhaps they haven't proven themselves useful to the site yet.(?) (I obviously don't know what I'm talking about but I think this is the way it works)

      When I first joined, I was trolled and name called but then people found out how fun and smart I was and saw how much I was helping people and now I'm friends with everybody.

      I think that's just the way it is. You just need to show how useful you are and show loyalty to the site.

      I don't know what I'm saying but hopefully somebody knows what I'm trying to say.

      So make up

      the downgrade page says "The lowest firmware you can go to is what was originally on your ps3 originally!" but I did some looking around last night for preparation and found this http://www.ps3devwiki.com/index.php?...alk:SKU_Models I mention it because my PS3 originally came with 3.50 but it's the CECH-2501A which this link claims can go down to 3.40, I think is like of the models of PS3's and the lowest FW they can handle would be very helpful.

      You didn't have to quote my old post to say that, LOL! No offense but that was funny because that had nothing to do with what I said.

      You can install a .PUP file at ANY time but it's highly recommended that you revert to OFW before doing so.

      If you don't have OFW, here are links to firmware files 3.41 and 3.55:

      Official firmware 3.55

      If I may be so bold, you did actually instigate his retort based on his lack of linguistic prowess with your native tongue. You cannot disregard his statement without invalidating your own. In addition, he has attempted to return to topic several times. Quit it please. An eloquent statement does not an intellectual make.

      Also, you should learn proper spacing + capitalization before you criticize another person's use of the English language.

      P.S: English is not my native language either, and thus cannot stand it when people use that as the focal point of a dispute. Your English is excellent Pockets. ^^

      BEWARE

      I read that installing from recovery mode loses ACT.DAT(to do with PSN games & DLC).... Just saying, since theres a few people that are going to try and give this a go even though this feature hasn't been fully documented yet. Tread with caution people and make a backup before you muck around with this stuff. You have already been warned not to mess around with it, but obviously there are alot of curious people. I am guessing that downgrading will also cost you your ACT.DAT since the way to downgrade is from Recovery Menu, not the XMB. So those of you that were thinking of checking this out and then downgrading back to 3.41 later on for cobra/JFW use be wary.

      However dont take my word for it read the below links and make your own educated decision because I have no experience what so ever with this feature but have been reading up on it before/if I choose to Flag one of my consoles and thought I'd share the information I have read.

      Post #125

      http://wiki.gitbrew.org/index.php/Downgrade

      Sorry if it's already been posted, all I saw in the last couple of pages were discussions about languages, trolling and 'initiation periods', so couldn't be bothered checking back a couple of more pages.

      From what I understood from the wiki, the process of downgrading involves formatting your entire hard drive. I might be making an assumption here, but that means you will most likely lose all your homebrew apps, saves, videos etc...

      I'm with you on that one though, I see no point in getting excited and installing something that isn't of much use to the everyday user. I'm waiting it out till something more compelling comes out of QA flagging.

      I will be a defender of pockets69 ,I have read post of his & has helped me in many questions i needed answered .. I did not need to repeatidly post help 2 him when i seen him or other mods on the same thread !! I just read his or other mods/members comments & learn off of everyons post that makes sence So i have to agree about things the mods have to put up with here ,being people always talking, asking, a million times about new CFW 360,361,365, already seeing other posts about the latest OFW366 ,is there going to be a CFW366 ,you all got to understand they told regged users many times . If there were going to be a new CFW it will be front paged just like the spanish dev, doing a new CFW as we speak, as we all dont know exactly what CFW it will be ,probably CFW355. To my point ,the mods answered all of these questions so many timesxxx ,it has to be stressfull to hear/asked the same thing over & over . Just read ..I have only jailbroken my ps3 4 a year now . I learned by reading not asking a million questions ,i read other posts that had the same questions as me or close ,then i improvised from there answered questions = Where the improvisation is intended to solve a problem on a temporary basis, the 'proper' solution being unavailable at the time ? It may be known as a stop-gap ? This particularly applies to engineering improvisations ,read everything about whatever your need .Then if you really dont understand ,ask then !! Not flamming anyone but i am just about 38yrs old & i would be stressed over the same questions ,especially if a person cant understand well when tryin to help = understand mods dont just answer 1 person at a time ,they are kepping up with prioritys, as in monitoring trollers,flamming,the site,news, U all who are ripping on the mods have to understand . How would you feal about same thing over & over everyday..Come on JUST read & u will be suprised, answers are everywere !!! you all know we all appreciate you all No matter if you get mad at us from time to time, it is same if it were reversed on us being mad at the mods ..

Tread with caution people and make a backup before you muck around with this stuff. You have already been warned not to mess around with it, but obviously there are alot of curious people. I am guessing that downgrading will also cost you your ACT.DAT since the way to downgrade is from Recovery Menu, not the XMB. So those of you that were thinking of checking this out and then downgrading back to 3.41 later on for cobra/JFW use be wary.

      However dont take my word for it read the below links and make your own educated decision because I have no experience what so ever with this feature but have been reading up on it before/if I choose to Flag one of my consoles and thought I'd share the information I have read.

      Post #125

      http://wiki.gitbrew.org/index.php/Downgrade

      Sorry if it's already been posted, all I saw in the last couple of pages were discussions about languages, trolling and 'initiation periods', so couldn't be bothered checking back a couple of more pages.
      I seen that link of yours , from what i read they are talking about Firmware you want to downgrade to. (3.41, 3.15) Also stated =These tools COULD format your ps3. (which means Any and ALL psn / downloaded data should be erased)

      note: several people noted that they did not suffer from dataloss even after several downgrades, but its good measure to backup before downgrading)
      And final = Installation process
      1. Install CFW355-OTHEROS++-SPECIAL.pup (Doesn't matter what version you are 3.41, 3.50 etc etc)
      2. Install qa_flag_extra.pkg
      3. Run qa_flag (It will show up as this, that is fine)
      4. If you hear the beeps, continue. If you don't hear the beeps go to step 10
      5. Reboot
      6. Go into recovery menu and Update your ps3 with the firmware that you want (3.15, 3.41 etc)
      7. have it install
      Now you're done. You downgraded your ps3.
      But (thanks) 4 the warning 341 users should beware 4 shure, i have read every post even from 3 websites no reports when staying at your current CFW 355 .... Which will not lose your act.dat.. or xreg.sys...But true as i do 2 different backups, full backup in data folders ,then full ps3 backup sonys way .dat files.. This way you can copy your folders back in data view with comgenies AFM...

      alrite, got a coule of questions. please dont flame me, i have read and re-read all the news on this qa flag, but still have a few queries. at this stage i have no plan on installing as it sounds pretty useless to me at this point in time. if/ when the other flags are found is when i will bother installing. i also understand that we dont have the 3.56+ keys. my question is that when the other flags are found is that likely to make it so the current OFW will not be needed to access psn? i know everyone is against psn on cfw, just wondering if that is a likely outcome out of all of this. if its not, then i really dont see what this qa flag achieves as we are already able to basically do what we want up to 3.55. thanks for the reply's, hopefully the questions aren't to nooby and irritating. cheers.

      no, when we have the advanced QA it will not mean we will have psn, they changed certain things to ensure that only 3.60 and higher FW have the required info to get on psn

      cheers. thats what i figured. so to truly unlock the ps3 we need to be able to qa flag 3.6+. so in real terms does being able to qa flag 3.55 make qa flagging 3.6+ any closer, or is it more of a distraction?

      Install 3.55 OFW first the install Other OS++ special, you can do it through recovery or via xmb, not service mode. most people will tell you recovery is safer. I myself never had any problems with doing it via xmb. i have read that some people have lost the ability to use their dlc when flashing otherOS++ special via recovery and xmb but i can't confirm that at the moment

      At The Moment....NO it will not help! The right people will be able to put this to use though(DEVs)!! it is more of a distraction to keep all the whiners happy, you know the ones who say the scene is dead (pirates, leechers) the funny part is all the pirates who are so happy to have this don't realize it will not help them pirate PSN games + DLC when they activate the NPDRM debug option which they think will allow them to warez psn games and DLC,

      It will remove their legally owns psn contents licenses, rendering them unusable, but they have been warned and they will choose to ignore this because they think we are saying that to lord it over them or hold the "scene" back or because they claim we have a twisted sense or morality.

      they claim the scene is dead, the only thing i see killing the scene is their need to pirate things.

      I wont deny that some senior members or moderators have a tendency, to "appear" rude, i may be guilty of a few occurrences, but.... you state you are not sure of which Senior Member/Moderator is being rude, so how can you actually be sure they are being rude.

      You see that is the problem, the people that are moaning about people asking questions over and over and over again, are the exact same people that have already answered that question over and over and over again, the problem is people cant read, or they are too lazy to read.
      One of the fundamentals of learning is reading, if the members ask questions that have already been asked, they clearly aren't reading.

      If you and your friends are really dedicated to working on something on the PS3, then a few forum posts wouldn't put you off.

      Im not actually sure, that you know what the scene is about, its about so much more than a few forum posts.

      If they were quite knowledgeable, why would they be asking a question that has been answered several times, surely a knowledgeable person would know how to read.

      This site will be great with or without you, it was here long before the scene progressed to what it is today and it will be here long after.

      I really wouldn't have responded to this thread, but this post regarding Pockets69's lack of English skills, made me say WTF.

      Your posts are full of spelling mistakes and your punctuation, is rather dismal, so before you make yourself look like a hypocrite again, look at yourself and your lack of English skills.

      This is a wrong response, you should have just ignored him, saying "Trolololololol", is kind of immature, let trolls be trolls, don't feed them.

      Now if anyone wants to continue this type of childish argument, i shall set up a channel dedicated to you on IRC.
      Now any person that posts off topic after this will be infracted, if you have a grievance, take it to PM or IRC, the forum is not a place for such behaviour.

      just wait, read more and let the dev's find this of use.

      I'm sorry if I was the catalyst for heated talk. It's good though.

      Let's be serious...

      What we're all a part of is a "serious" hobby.

      Make no doubts about it, Im a noob to the fullest when it comes to linux and any other tool related but, I am technically inclined and can read and figure it out. Thats the joy for me. So, I don't take it that serious.

      Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think anyone here is getting paid directly from this....? We're a band of shipmates along long fom the ride trying to learn something. I'm just the kind of person that finds humor in the quirkiest of things.

      As far as deterring folks...

      As I said, I'm a noob but you can ask whatever you want and I'll try to get you the correct answer if I can.

      Thanks GregoryRasputin yes i should have stopped! in fact i don't really think i should have acted mature! in the beginning, if i had just stomped him, maybe he would have stopped! but no, i had to be polite, and reason with him, well bad decision from my part, it was only when i started to not take him seriously, that he stopped his trolling.
      But its all over now, i have nothing more to say to him, its all good, i just regret posting all that crap, and annoying other users, and mods that were here.
      and your response is epic

      For ****s sake. If you have a problem with the Mods, use the PM function, and if you are the same guy, then piss off and stop ruining every single thread you are in, and I am NOT a Mod nor do I suck up to them.....

      Sorry, i don't understand "retard", for your information, i am a happily married 30 year old man, with three children, so your estimations along with your fail at life punctuation, suck.

      Im not some pathetic 33 year old making two accounts, to try and validate one of their comments, you actually made me laugh, when i thought the world couldn't delve into an more of a pathetic dump, you go and disprove my thinking, well done.

      Now this pathetic grab at attention, pretending that you are some sort of cool developer, making something for the PS3, is laughable, because any respecting dev wouldn't be so thick and dumb as to use the same email as the original username, now that is the height of stupidity.

      Now in future, before you come in here attacking my community, my family, my staff or my admins, take a hard long look at your own pathetic wannabe life, whilst you are sitting in your parents basement playing on your model railway.

      And finally, anymore crap and both your accounts will be banned.

      i would love to thank the lot of you for dealing with that troll but i get maybe one or two uses from my thanks button before it runs off for hours at a time

      why do people feel the need to troll, then they think they are clever and make another account thinking we wont know its them well all it does is land them a ban. and if he keeps it up i will ban his first account also

      We've been able to pirate games since the original JB Dongle, unless the definition of piracy has changed since then? lol

      You forgot that 98% of dev's don't support pirating so if they don't include a way for you to pirate ppl will go back to sucking their thumbs and popping erections over every Youtube videos that has CFW 3.61+ lol

      yes i ment psn content i tought that would of been clear as everyone knows we have had back ups from the jb dongle, it only takes the 2% of devs like always theres gitbrew working on 3.56+ cfw some say its pointless and not needed (due to what happened last time with the MW2 CLs) but sure it only takes a small amount of devs working on it and soon we should hopefuly have it.

      you need to install gitbrew's special pup qa flag and then you can install kmeaw.

      Does installing gitbrew's pup format your hard drive? Losing trophy data? Am assuming it does but wanting confirmation

      no why would installing a pup delete all your data.

      No no, he's confused because the OtherOS format the HDD when saving that 20gb for it, and its the otheros not the Otheros PUP

      If you stay on Rebug OtherOS++ you will get trophy errors unless you build a custom Rebug OtherOS++ yourself with a ss service disabled.
      If you QA flag and go back to kmeaw you will not have the trophy error and it stays QA flagged
      Data won't be lost, otherwise make a backup using FTP to be sure
