PS3 Firmware update 4.82 hit the other day , which was suspected to close the PS3Xploit,, however it seems a future update will be patching that exploit as 4.82 was a planned update by Sony and did not address the PS3Xploit quite yet, but we expect that to come soon. However for you exciting CFW user's it that time as we wait and see which CFWs and APPs will be updated. While its good to see CFW released, its not advised to jump on those CFW until various apps like manager's and other utilities are updated as well. We have a 4.82 Custom Firmware / Homebrew / Tool thread for all those releases as they become live. Not all apps / Tools. / Homebrew need updates but depending on what resources they use of the system will dictate if said homebrew needs updates. usually its manager's and utilities and also the CFW , First up we have a NEW Standard CFW release by a familiar name developer @Alexander with his FERROX brand of CFW.. Checkout all the details of this CFW release; 4.82 CFW FERROX STANDARD EDITION from Alexander.

{UPDATE v0.2.3 Released(See tab)}
Following the official announcement of the PS3Xploit news (4.81 OFW Exploit), the devs behind the project have fulfilled the promises of releasing the IDPS Dumper for OFW 4.81/4.82 as this release is ready for the public. Now there is many more things being worked surrounding the overall project but this IDPS Dumper works on all models of the PS3 (NOR and NAND, note 12 GB EMMC will be supported soon in an updated release) and no reason not to release this tool. Since PS3 firmware 4.70 Sony had blocked flatz IDPS extracting tool (IDPS Stealer) and there has not been a known way to obtain the IDPS on OFW (4.70 +) consoles , but now this tool can now obtain your PS3's ID, which can have various uses, the tool has been confirmed to work on SuperSlim models by the team. . If you have not read the previous details about the PS3Xploit project, then checkout this official thread to get the firsthand information about this ambitious PS3 project.
UPDATE >>>>: Its appears that 4.82 DID NOT close the PS3Xploit.

It appears Sony has released a system update to Firmware 4.82 for the PS3, which is likely to close and patch the recent 4.81 exploit (PS3Xploit) as expected, The update came a bit quicker then many (including myself) expected, but you just never know with these type of things. If you planned to take advantage of the PS3Xploit hacks (Software Downgrader / Possible HEN (Homebrew Enabler) on Super Slims) DO NOT UPDATE TO THIS NEW OFFICIAL FIRMWARE 4.82, Stay on Firmware 4.81. As this firmware is investigated by scene developer's and also as Sony releases official details will be posted/updated in this article.​

Current CFW user's be sure to keep this thread in your bookmarks, As updated CFW ad new homebrew are released to support 4.82, we will add in our list that you can find >>> here <<<
Its very possible, we could see a new PS3 Firmware Update Coming in the near future for the PS3, the PS3Xploit Team wanted to be farther along with the project before any released files relating to the Exploit were released, so the project couldn't be patched before completion.The plan was not to release the IDPS dumper by itself, but with the entire project. However, when the leak occurred there was enough to give Sony a direction on what they needed to patch. So, that is when the team figured it was best to release what they have ready and tested. Which was the IDPS Dumper, since this Moronic Leak did nothing but alert Sony on what was coming down the road with enough clues to patch. The team detail what they have been doing/plans and then released the finished IDPS Dumper, to get awareness on this hack before an eventual firmware update arise, note that could be marked as 4.82 or higher when released. PS3Xploit will run on 4.81 Official Firmware. Do not update if a new System Software (firmware) update does arise.

Earlier in the week PS3 developer deank made a small change to the sMAN plugin with an update that promotes the project to version 1.12. In previous version of the sMAN (plugin based off deank's original webMAN with new features not to be confused with Aldostools webMAN MOD (which is also a great plugin choice as well) ) In sMAN PS2 ISO (not bin+cue) were only supported during Scanning. While some members in the psx-place forum though this could be a bug developer deank clarifies the situation by stating " It is not really a bug, because sMAN only supports PS2 games in ISO format but not BIN + CUE. That's why it does not find the game during the scan " so the developer has now added support to Scan also your PS2 games in BIN + CUE format. If you have not gave this plugin a try yet, the Slaunch Interface is one of the biggest cosmetic difference you will see compare to deank's original webMAN.​
