    Going to link to the original article to give credit where credit is due and for the sake of time

    http://www.psx-place.com/threads/ps...tware-flash-writer-nor-dumper-released.15500/

    If you're just looking to use the exploit and don't care to read through the whole article I have taken the liberty of putting the exploit on a webhost for you guys already that you're more than welcome to use if you would like and will put the instructions at the bottom of the thread.

    • PS3 Phat: this CFW installer will work for you
    • PS3 Slim: Will work on most models, but you have to check your factory firmware
    • PS3 SuperSlim: This release is not for you

    So first install ofw 4.82 then do the hack?
    Instructions seems complicated I need a visual guide.

    How do I install CFW?
    Do I need a guide that's specific for this method, or will any guide work?
    If any guide, please link a good one for me.

    I have one question:
    I own a phat that ylod some time ago (I know I said it a lot of times), but with enough persistence (Well, a lot) I can get it to boot. If I install CFW and make the fans run faster I won't be able to boot it up normally later on right? (I know that that way won't magically fix ylod, but I'm asking if with that new fan speed I wouldn't have to waste so much time on just properly turning the system on)

    If anyone writes up a guide on how to use this from start to finish using the already hosted site. Id be more than happy to add it to both the OP and site.

    Success!

    Heres a quick sloppy guide.

    Update to latest official firmware 4.82

    Extract Nor-nand writer release on computer.

    Make a htdocs folder within Nor-nand writer folder, and copy and paste nor and nand .html to it.

    copy flsh.hex to root of usb. Plug usb to right USB port on ps3.

    Load miniweb.exe on computer.

    Go to ps3 web browser, type the host you find in miniweb.exe in the ps3 web browser address bar, and either nor.html or nand.html depending on ps3 console you have. And click on the button, wait and you ps3 will shut down. Start up ps3 and install cfw that matches 4.82. I installed the Ferrox cobra 4.82 cfw.

    and there you go. If the thing fails then set home page to blank, close the browser, reopen the browser and try again. It goes into more detail in the readme document provided in the nor nand writer folder.

    it's nice of them to release this early, and for the latest firmware nonetheless
    is there any reason to stay in 4.81 now? mine is slim with min ver 4.10 so can't install CFW yet, but if 4.82 is no different than 4.81, I'll update

    I installed it on 4.82. I think you can only install it on 4.82.

    I can't wait to go back home and test this!
    I wonder if it will work since the idps dumper wrote an empty idps on my usb stick (the file is 16 bytes in size but filled with 0x00).

    Just tried it, and it worked.

    Installed Overflow+Cobra 4.81 CFW.

    Super happy, but a bit lost on the whole, what now?

    But other than that, this exploit has just ushered a new era of hacked PS3 consoles.

    Reminds of 11.2 from the 3DS!
