Developer Playerkp420 has released a DUALBOOT firmware for 4.81, The theory and purpose behind the dualboot firmwares is providing a CFW a safer way to play disc games on PSN without the risk of a ban for simply having a CFW enabled Console. This sligthly modified firmware will act and behave just as an Official Firmware, so no homebrew or game backups will work, but the magic of this firmware is will allow you to RETURN to a CFW at any time. Checkout all the details in the release quote provided.
Details of 4.81 DUALBOOT FIRMWARE
- Made from OFW 4.81.
- ECDSA check patch applied to isoldr in lv0.
- ECDSA check patch applied to spu_pkg_rvk_verifier.
- Same metadata applied to keep the exact same size as OFW. (see pic below) Even all the encrypted files inside CoreOS are the same size.
- Can be installed over OFW 3.55 and any CFW with a lower or same version.
- While on this DB OFW 4.80, you can install any CFW with the same or higher Syscon version.
- Can only play disc based games and games downloaded from PSN. (Basically it is just like OFW, except you are able to go back to CFW without a hardware flasher.)
For those that don't know, this is for a safer way to play on PSN. It is suggested to have 2 hard drives. One for CFW, and one for this DB OFW. When you want to act like your PS3 is not jailbroken, insert DB OFW HDD and install Playerkp420 DB OFW 4.81. Then you can play as you are on OFW. Then when you wish to go back to CFW, insert CFW HDD, and install your favorite CFW. It is important to keep your DB OFW HDD free of any homebrew apps. To prevent Sony from seeing them. Keep all your CFW stuff on your CFW HDD.
I personally tested this on my CECH-2501A, and my CECHA01. On both I went from Darknet 4.81 v1.00 to Playerkp420 DB OFW 4.81. Then back to Darknet 4.81 v1.00.
It is recommended anyway to boot to recovery menu after switching HDDs and installing either DB OFW or CFW with Option 6 every time you want to switch.
Don't just switch HDDs, because then your NOR/NAND Flash will still have CFW and you will risk ban from PSN.

TheFlow cracks Vita Firmware 3.67 ("Will Release" but "Not Soon")TheFlow has brought some clarity on the recent updates (commits) made to VitaShell suggesting 3.67 Support, It is indeed true that 3.67 is now exploitable for the PS Vita and sibling devices the PlayStation TV (Vita TV). The dev has now confirmed on his official twitter (tweets below) that user and kernel access on Vita's 3.67 Firmware has been achieved, However, do note before you get too excited, the developer won't release till end of year, in what seems to be a move to wait out any future Vita firmware updates that may be on the horizon,. The dev has also stated (if time allows) the possibility to update HENkaku Enso to 3.65 for existing Vita user's, but in the future we might see all vita devices with a new window for exploiting .Its unclear if the recent Vita Bootloader Hack aided or had anything to with this hack but details are sure to emerge in the coming weeks and months What ya think about this announcement from TheFlow?
