    Triple HHH. That used to be a wrestler name... or something lewd. :blink:

    I don't mean to sound unimpressed. I just don't get it so much. It's the same thing but with a unpatched exploit without downgrading. It's already confusing that
    1. if you can install a update.pup without modification already, why not just make it a firmware downgrade
    2. if you can install a update.pup without modification already, why isn't it CFW
    Other than that I get the idea of the whole thing, its useful, just confused on the idea of it. :ninja:

    This remembers me about the "FrankenFirmware" semi-brick on the 3ds, when only some modules were installed during an arm11 downgrade... Good times :)
    Ps: I think they have released it?

    Think of it as an homebrew enabler patch for use on official firmware

    My understanding is, the latest official firmware patched the exploit for Han, so developers patched that firmware with files from older firmware which allows Han to be enabled, and this worked because all files used are official firmware files that are officially signed.

    grab it while it's hot, I bet sony is going to release a new firmware in the later half of this year.
    why you may ask. because sony is still supporting the ps3 as a bluray movie player and bluray keys need to be renewed.

    I can see that but i feel there's no need too really and is honestly a waste of time, they should focus on the PS4 as they normally do and leave the PS3 as it is.

    Revisioning is Sony's fetish. Do you have any idea how many internal iterations there have been of the consoles thus far? Per last count, there were twenty diffetent revisions of the original PlayStation before the mini sized PSOne was a thing. And the ps2 was something around 19 major revisions. Or the alphabet soup that is the ps3. The limited amount of revisions on the ps4 is actually a surprise by comparison.

    The contents of the update that should be signed (executable code) are indeed 100% signed with the appropriate official key, that's why once installed it can run on an unmodified console (even if you somehow decrypted the nand of an official 4.84 console and manually downgraded the browser)

    The update package itself, which is obviously modified, is accepted by an unmodified console thanks to... a still secret exploit that was first used for this release (though I think I have an unverified idea on how it works)

    You can't downgrade unless you have the QA flag enabled or (not sure) are running a CFW that bypasses that check, which is partially implemented in hardware (indeed the questionable award of the first brick linked to 4.84 hybrid is of someone who ported (incorrectly) the 4.82 flash writer and used it to flash a CFW-update-accepting 4.82 coreOS)

    My Original Playstation has that useless port that was supposed to be used for Online games and can be used for a Printer. Newer versions lack that port.

    And to be fair there is like 20 versions of the Sega Genesis, about a dozen are officially licenced. That's because the Sega Genesis keep getting games regularly until the year 2000.

    AFAIK all they had to do was update the outdated web kit.

    How are you counting those? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlayStation_models

    But sure, Sony like to do constant cost reduction. Commodore used to be the kings of cost reduction, they came up with metalised cardboard for shielding in the final c64 revisions.

    It probably took them an hour and it's blocked ps3xploit for 5 months. Seems like time well spent.

    so basically ALL ps3 can either be cfw'd or HAN'd?

    if you use ps3 han, are you able to load up multiman by any chance?

    nevermind I just looked it up. looks like CFW is what we really need for all the good stuff

    And Now that "useless port" can be used with a gameshark or similar to flash unirom to it and make it a soft-modchip, not unlike how Pseudo Saturn became a thing for the Sega contemporary.

    I missed my Gameshark Pro when i was forced to replace my ps1's with a model lacking the parallel port. It had the cheat system, the ability to hack my own codes, and v-mem, which basically was a virtual memory card and saved a crap ton of money right there.

    On a chipped Playstation you can just use a CD with a program that loads cheat codes and then play the game you want the cheat on.

    That's the only Gameshark I had for the system, typing the cheats manually for some games was a pain but it worked.

    Was excited for 1 minute thinking Super Slim (when I read all Consoles) has a kernel exploit then saw it was just HAN:(
