• Update: Its out, download here.

    Sony is rolling out PS3 FW 4.0 this week in prep for PSVita’s launch.

    To quote:

    A new system software update (v4.00) will be released this week. In preparation for the launch of PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) in Japan, this update will prepare PlayStation 3 (PS3) to serve as a content management device. It will allow users to copy their digital content such as games, music, photos, and videos between PS Vita and PS3, back up PS Vita game games including save data to your PS3 hard drive, and update the system software for your PS Vita system using the network features of your PS3.

    Other changes to take effect with this update include:

    • PlayStation Plus members can now choose to enable or disable each automatic update feature
      • Game patches
      • System software
      • Recommended games and videos
      • Sync trophy information
  • New PlayStation Network settings for filtering friend requests and messages
  • Looks like we can finally stop asking for CFW 3.7x and start asking for CFW 4.X!

      maybe the 3.7x keys will be released after this.. this would make them obsolete so no lawsuit.. i guess.. if their out there that is..

      your probably right, but maybe more devs will be inclined to work on 3.7x after the new update..

      I'm just saying don't hope much,you should learn that from ps3scene by now

      Maybe we can get something from Kaka's 3.73 JB,3.41 was also JB...

      Someone has keys like (TB team,Math and few others) but they will never release it.

      i'll have my 3.55 cfw ps3 soon.. just got my progskeet to downgrade so i'm not worried... i have a jtag for new games lol ... and i buy ps3 exclusives and play them on my ofw machine...

      i won't hope but i will keep an eye out.. Sony won't care much about 3.xx after 4.0 comes out.. so maybe Devs (or anybody else) would feel a bit safer and release their work...

      we'll just have to wait and see i guess...

      the true question is if e3 flasher or progskeet flasher can downgrade from this firmware i dont think sony could patch it and if thats the case i can see more people maybe grabing one to downgrade

      and kakarotoks 3.73 jailbreak hasent been leaked he confirmed
      wich is good news

      Since *probably* TB have keys up to 3.73 my guess is they can break any future FW with method used to dump 3.7x keys to get 4x keys?

      but for 4.x games they will sell it as Jailbreak 3/True Blue 2

      no more offtopic for me

      wow we haven't even had a cfw for 3.56+ and they're already releasing ofw4.0 we might never really catch up(for a few years or so).....i got admit $ony has the most secure game console in the history of video games

      I'm gonna update. No security patches in the whats new so I'll give it a go so I can keep playing online. I can't wait for the PS3 to be as cracked as the PSP.

      Oh and they added a safety screen when the PS3 first turns on :/ lame!

      From the looks of it, this was more of a feature upgrade than a security upgrade, so I bet KaKaRoToKS' 3.73 exploit still works.

      Also, updates like this one are when Sony tends to make some big mistakes. How much do ya wanna bet adding all the Vita/PS3 connectivity features to the PS3 opened up a hole to exploit?

      yep, maybe ps vita may be the link.. remember when they found the psp keys in the ps3 .. maybe theirs a way of getting access to the latest keys from ps vita.. we'll wait and see i guess...

      it's not unlike sony to shoot themselves in the foot

      I've noticed a few people commenting to the effect that no security patches have been advertised, which is generally accepted as a good thing for Kaka's possible upcoming exploit.

      Why is everyone taking Sony for their word? Isn't it possible that they've changed a key or two or beefed up security and just didn't announce it for this patch? Considering the distrustful things they've done in the past, I wouldn't trust them at all...

      Sony only says security purposes in their firmware announcements when they release nothing new in them. 4.0 comes with new additions, but that does not mean they did not bundle in some patches along with those features. Remember that they are not obliged to divulge what patches they do in their firmware.

      Sony might as well just charge for online play like Microsoft seems how 98% of the new features in firmware only target ps+ members. Makes me want to buy another pre 3.56 ps3 that much more, or even another 360...

      I really could not care any less about these features. As long as the current features for free users stay the same, I am not going to complain about it. It's free and offers much more than the free version of XBL.

      Hmm just looked at the update...its apparently optional and those on 3.73 or later don't need to install this. So I'm guessing keys are the same. I see nothing about security patches so I am still betting that KaKaRoToKS exploit still works on this 4.0 update.

      I just got the 3.73 pup and still got asked to update to 4.0 when trying to sign in to the PSN. I guess optional to S**Y means: 3.73 stays offline or we give you the option of 4.0 and online services lol

      NO, Don't stop asking for CFW 3.7x, I have another PS that I am no updating waiting for someone to come up with a CFW 3.7x. If we keep forgetting about the old, and ask for the new, then we will never get anywhere cuz right when they crack it, sony will just pop up with a new firmware. so, CFW 3.7 plz

      lv0 cannot be updated, so once that is compromised, the console would be ours. That or Bootldr which loads lv0.

      I thought the only way they can stop downgrading from one of these was bringing out a hardware revision (like 3k series)?? if that's true then this shouldn't effect the consoles that can already be downgraded...

      correct me if i'm wrong.. i would try but just in case i don't want to be stuck on 4.0 ofw lol

      cat and mouse game is now at 4.0 lol,this is not really a good future for sony, if this update is for vita what will happen when vita gets rooted? another ps3 update due to the handheld to block unauthorized content?, the vita will be a loop hole or another reason the ps3 needs an update.

      The cat and mouse game in the PS3 Scene has Sony winning at the moment. We are on 3.55 barely getting any workings games.

      The PSP Scene on the other hand, the cat and mouse game has ended in the Scene's favor. PSP users can do anything they want really with Sony unable to stop them due to signed homebrew.

      As for the Vita, I do not see it getting hacked too soon. It could probably have firmware restrictions like the PS3 with PSN. Both consoles need to be up to date to connect to each other, or something like that.

      Sony are only winning in half of the scene.
      Anyone on a vulnerable firmware still have homebrew. They can never take that fact away so as far as I see it, its still a win for us

      This may come as a surprise to most but I am 100% happy with a company securing their product so if psvita being secure means updating the ps3 security also, then so be it, good for them, but what I do not agree with is the way they act towards us when they make mistakes and leave vulnerabilities.

      I guess that exploit should still work, but for having HW we need to patch peek&poke in RAM like JFW do. Anyway i think PS/E3/... must work unlees they sneak in your house and attach a new memory Maybe they can block the downgrande itself(unlikely) but swap method couldn't be patched.

      Mmmmm I wonder what ofw 4.0 has to offer though I think updating now (unless you have a spare console) is kind of dumb since its jumping into something new that has not had a proper look at yet (well to my belief) but im just saying this coz I want homebrew on 3.73 which KaKaRoTo is working on :D
      Though I would like to see 4.0.

      I wonder if $ony would stop homebrew on any firmware even if it did not have and ties to piracy?

      Wonder which dev will be the 1st to post any news related to or based on 4.0???

      does the e3 flasher works with date-code '1B' (CECH-3004A) aswell?

      I saw some sites which say it doesnt, some that say it does.

      x-mas is a ripe time for homebrew because everyone would rather be working on hacking projects than spending time with their family.... or at least I would :D

      On a side note, you better believe Sony will patch whatever hole Kaka uses to make homebrew work even though it won't allow for backups... anybody remember the days WAAAAY back when there was the java for the blu-ray exploit and there was a working NES emulator that used it? I do and yeah, they patched it with the next firmware even though it only allowed for stuff coded in java.

      We just need the keys...if we can get keys we can hack the games themselves. I really don't care about a new CFW as long as I can play new games...Sony is only adding features where they sell Sony products; they can't be bothered to do anything useful like making the PS3 play MKV files or something.

      The PS3 does not play MKV because MKV is a high def rip of a blu-ray. $ony get royalties for every bluray sold, so if you can download blu ray rips and play them on $ony hardware, it would be stupid of $ony to allow it. Still, it does suck!

      MKV is a container. And the PS3 can play the stuff inside the container 9 times out of 10. Showtime is proof of that. It uses the PS3's own codecs to play it. MP4 can handle HD as well, Blu-Ray has nothing to do with this really.

      Most people need to realize that 4.00, just because it has a much higher version number, is not a completely different firmware. 4.00 is as different from 3.73 as 3.73 is from 3.70. Sony just uses the 4.00 number for marketing purposes (Vita).

      LV0 can be updated, that is how they locked down 3.60+, they hid the ldrs in lv0 and trashed metldr.
      What cannot be updated is bootldr, and bootldr contains the lv0 key, meaning they cannot change that key, allowing us to decrypt any current and future lv0.

      CECH-30xx are not downgradeable at all. Same applies to most 25xx with datecode 1A or 1B.

      MKV came out long before bluray; it is an extremely useful format for lots of things...bluray rips use it because it is useful, highly functional, and cross-platform; not because it is the default or anything.

      9 out of 10?? That's a great ratio. I'd say mine were 5 out of 10, because of the ref frames. Showtime doesn't play anything over 5 ref frames and 4.1 sound I believe. Although, you can adjust the ref frames/fps with the mkv software created by deanK.

      It's fine to not have heard about PSVita. But the news does say "Sony is rolling out PS3 FW 4.0 this week"

      Obviously if it's from Sony, it's not any kind of hack/jailbreak/CFW or anything to play new games, it's just an OFW :P
      (Well you CAN play new games with it obviously, just not back them up/use homebrew :P)

      Why I have this feelig that we won't get CFW any time soon. I think that we gonna be on 3.55 for a LOOOONG ASS TIME. Just think about it...

      Mathieulh decrypts LV0 at FW 3.73 so it's not a CFW which means that it wont run any BackUp's unless some one will fix it. (So it's kinda useless? ..for now)

      KaKaRoToKS has this fight with some gay ass leaker (solved). Also KaKaRoToKS's post's are useless since all he does is TROLLING (I created a CFW 3.73 but I won't release it so yea.. in your fu face). (Usefull? NO!)

      TB2JB, E3 Flasher, CobraUSB and all those <---- things are useless. My d*ck is more usefull than this crap.

      These things ruins PS3Scene because everything was free before and shared between other devs/users. And I don't see XBOX devs asking for money of they work (but XBOX is obviously much easier to JB and MS don't update their sys. like Sony does 24/7).

      Before posting anything, I suggest you get your facts straight.

      1. Math is stuck up. He decrypted lv0, maybe, but that helped no one. He trolls the scene by saying he did it first when devs release something. Then when he actually does something himself, he never releases it.

      2. Kakarotoks IS DEVELOPING his 3.73 Jailbreak. Why should he release a non-working JB? Kakaroto, if you have not noticed has released his work in the past and said he will release the 3.73 JB when it is ready.

      3. You cannot easily JB an Xbox. If you think that, you are pretty ignorant. To allow unsigned code to run on a 360, you need to solder. You need to modify the consoles internal parts (Jtag and the new mod). Even then it is not possible on all consoles. To hack the DVD drive, yeah, it is pretty simple, but you still have to open the console and connect it to your computer, but all that allows you to do is play pirated games. I highly doubt many people use it for legitimate back ups. Even if they do, they are far outweighed by pirates. Which brings me to the part where I point out that the Xbox Scene is a warez scene. Most people do not have a Jtag or equivalent, they just hack the DVD drive and pirate everything they can. Also, Microsoft hands out bans to people that have a modded Xbox, I have not ever heard of Sony doing such a thing back when we had PSN on CFW.

      I guess u have a point there. I have only been on this scene for a year now. And yea... I didn't mean like "do hard work and don't get nothing"... if devs wants our help they can always ask for donation but selling it is a total bullsh*t like those USB JB's.

      Those True Blue and other Dongle devs are not the same as the ones doing the OFW hacking. TB devs are scumbags trying to make a buck from piracy.

      Nope. Those who were stricken down and mercilessly banned did something bad to upset Sony (hacking CoD I remember was a reason bans flew out). I was on PSN till the very last day we had access to retail PSN and I never got banned. I received an email warning, but that was probably months before all access ceased.

      They are from disc. I don't use that crappy streaming feature they have built into the PS3. It's junk.

      Well, if you make a backup and use AnyDVD HD to take out protection. Then, how does PS3 know.

      Well, one thing cool that OFW 4.00 does: It FINALLY fixes reading the meta tags on iTunes AAC files. The PSP could always see track names, artists, album, etc. It only took the PS3 5 years to fix that. Now my legit PS3 might actually be a decent music player since it's hooked to surround sound.
