    BEWARE (Exploited PS3's) PlayStation firmware update 4.83 has just went Live, developer's from the PS3Xploit team have not had time to take a look at it yet since this has just been released (see update, devs are looking into it now and will update us here in this thread), This update could potentially be a patch for the PS3Xploit hacks (but they have not in a year which has been odd) or it could be a simple routine update for things such as the BluRay player. Developer's will look into this newly released update and we will keep us posted here in this thread. Its advised to stay on 4.82 until Ps3Xploit developer's verify the newly released Official firmware. Users and Ps3 Firmware Bot has confirmed the update is live.

      Official Ps3Xploit Response via @bguerville


      After a look at the update files & preliminary tests, I am afraid I am bearing some bad news for HAN users playing online.

      1. It would appear that [email protected] patched one of the 2 webkit exploits we currently use to trigger ROP chains.
      It means that we need to replace this exploit in order to get any ps3xploit tool working on 4.83. Work is already under way, obviously no ETA at this stage. Please don't ask.

      The kernel is completely untouched. No changes to either lv1 or lv2 which means CFWs will be easier to make. That's also good news for devs with any promising kernel vulnerability under investigation.

      3. Changes were made to vsh as usual & they seem extensive enough to suspect that they may have patched the HAN vulnerability as well. We have not yet had time to look into the matter at all but if they did, HAN might be gone for good past 4.82, leaving only CFW2OFW conversions installable & runnable on 4.83 whenever the patched webkit exploit gets replaced.

      In conclusion, the changes brought by the 4.83 update mean that anyone updating will lose usage of HAN, and possibly permanently until a kernel exploit comes out. Cfw2ofw conversions will be the only installed games that will still be working after updating.

      The nature of this update is upsetting our 4.0 release plans somewhat. It's still very early stages in our investigations & there are still many unanswered questions for the moment. I will keep you all posted whenever I have additional information to share.

      As 4.83 releases (CFW / Homebrew / Tools) are made , we will keep this linked thread below updated:

    Do not update to 4.83 or you could lose the ability to exploit your PS3

      Oh well, i expected that any member of the exploit team, to say "yeah" or "it's possible but will take time or anything.
      Also i wrote this at 3am (my time zone) so i was asleep.

      Now seeing that Han is dead in 4.83.... It's there a CFW 4.83 (trusty)??? To go back to an older version (4.81-.82)
    4. SkillFeed

      Quick question lads: Does the 4.70 Backup Data Utility method, still works on 4.83? Ive heard that it does the same way as HAN did, via CFW2OFW, but you have to reformat the drive each time you add a new game.

      Just wanted to confirm, and try it myself, with the SS i have on 4.83, with my another 2104A on 4.82.2.

      The HDD will be formatted each time a a backup restore is attempted. The changes do not matter, even if you try to restore the exact backup you took a minute ago it will still format.
    8. Naked_Snake1995
      Sure thing, but the method still works for 4.83.

      The machine was never exploited with HAN, so no HAN traces.

      Yes. The CFW2OFW conversions still work on 4.83, the only problem is how to inject the game files...
      You can use DTU like you suggested. The only alternative atm is to inject CFW2OFW conversions files into a ps3 backup file using the ps3xport PC utility modded by lmn7 to be restored on OFW.
      Prior presence of HAN makes no difference.

      OK, so back to the original post. Any further progress or has all been abandoned?
    12. Fanhais
      the devs are still working but no release date yet to say, don't have high expectations someday maybe psxploit 4.0 out

      Yes you can on CFW compatible models, the original way with a Hardware flasher such as E3, it's a lot more complicated than a software xploit but it does the job well.

      You're right. but as you might know, most of HAN's users have super slim, which is not a CFW compatible system. So most of those users are checking this and other related posts looking for news, including me.
      The last time a dev told us about the progress was some months ago, so it would be great to see any reports, of course thankfully by the hard effort these experts are making.

      This was posted a little over a weak ago & explains everything
