Playstation 3 Firmware 4.11 Is Live

Well, looks like Sony have blessed us with another firmware update, this one being 4.11. I heard not too long ago that this update was not going to be mandatory, but I was forced to update before I could login.

So far there is no information on the update from sony or anywhere else. We can assume though that it is just a “security” update or that it works out some “bugs”.

So obviously Sony found some hole that they decided they needed to fix so their beloved PS3 wasn’t hacked to shit again =)

4.10 Is Out!!

I was just logging on to pwn some n00bs at some COD and saw this message. Looks like it is time to update to PlayStation 3 firmware 4.10.

Along with updating, expect to be accepting a new TOS which most of you probably saw a few days ago in a mass email from Sony.


Features included in this new update (couldn’t have lived without them!!!!):

    • The Internet Browser has been improved. Some websites that could not be displayed, including interactive websites, are now supported, and page layouts are now displayed with better accuracy.
  • You can now obtain the correct Date and Time automatically when you sign in to PlayStation Network. If you do not need to set the correct time automatically, set [Settings] – [Date and Time Setting] – [Set Automatically] to [Off].

PS3 3.72 Firmware Update Is Here *UPDATED*

Looks like Sony has decided to slap us with another firmware update which as always promises to enhance “security” and “stability”.

I really don’t see what changes this has made. If anyone notices anything, leave a comment.

Also, I need to get confirmation, but I don’t think this will effect any of the NAND/NOR flashers like E3 and ProgSkeet… but like I said I will check for you guys.

From the PlayStation Blog

A new PS3 system software update, v3.72, will be released soon. With this minor update, system stability during use of PS3 format software and network services has been improved.

As always –  DO NOT UPDATE TO 3.72 if you are on 3.55 or below!! If you are higher than 3.55 I really don’t see the harm… but don’t blame me if you update and then wish you hadn’t for one reason or another.

**UPDATE**  – The 3.72 update will not stop the E3 Flasher from working. Downgrading and Dual Booting still working fine =)

E3 Flasher New Video – PSN *UPDATED*

Hey guys, just another video form the E3DIY team. This was released from them just to clear some of the rumors that their videos were fake, and to show some new features including PSN support!! (3.70)

Info from E3DIY team via PS3Crunch

E3 FLASHER dual boot, can with v3.70 play PSN and with v3.55 play your HDD games!

After we release dual boot video, most people love it but it also raised some doubt. We understand, so today we release a new video, and do some clarification:

1: E3 FLASHER not only a flasher, but with perfectly extension because integrated lots of interface
* We will release more useful function later, all will be free just like when we release Golden Finger function on our E3 card reader.

2: E3 FLASHER can be upgrade from PC USB or TF card, very simple to do.

3: E3 FLASHER dual boot you need TWO HDD’s, one for 3.70 , another for 3.55. If you use only one HDD, it will be required to format everytime.
* We will release a kit that includes ESATA station for you switch HDD’s easier. (Supports 2.5″ and 3.5″ sizes)

4: At present, on NAND flash console, you need to solder plus wires also. And no dual boot function because no 256M NAND FLASH ON E3 FLASHER.
* On NOR flash FAT console, you need to solder plus wires also, and includes dual boot function.
* On Slim console, there is no wires, but you still need solder some points. It is easy can be done in 3min.

5: We will release 2 new version E3 FLASHER at the end of this month.
* One is 256M NAND flash on board and with CLIP, to get dual boot and no solder function.
* Another is same as present E3 FLASHER but with CLIP, so all NOR flash console no need any solder at that time. (sure cost will higher)

6: If all goes well, we will release official pictures and retail prices by this wednesday !

So, looks like we should at least be seeing what this thing looks like in a day, and have our hands on one hopefully (Thanks MyGaming Mart) sooner than later!! UPDATE* Looks like pricing is going to be around $90. Kinda pricey but should be worth it :)

Stay tuned for more info on this super awesome mysterious device.
