    I will start this off with NO you can not jailbreak your PS3 SuperSlim Console's (seems to be a popular question), however that does not mean the Ps3Xploit Team, (bguerville, esc0rtd3w, habib & W), has not been hard at work, with this new release of Ps3Xploit v2.0.. In this release all the tools (IDPS Dumper, Flash Dumper & Flash Writer) have seen significant improvements and now performing the task such as installing a Custom Firmware on your 4.82 OFW PS3 (with flash writer) has been made even easier and very stable thanks to the team's new checks implemented and progression of the exploit. The Flash and IDPS dumper are also much improved. All the details are provided below please read all the spoiler and tabs before asking any questions.

    PS3Xploit 2.0 Tools Now LIVE!!

    • Included Tools
      • 4.XX IDPS DUMPER
      • 4.XX FLASH DUMPER (USB Edition)
      • 4.XX FLASH DUMPER (HDD Edition)
      • 4.82 NOR/NAND WRITER (USB Edition)
      • 4.82 NOR/NAND WRITER (HDD Edition)

      Ps3Xploit Tools Changelogs
      v2.0
      • Freeze issues - Fixed
      • Occasional bad dumps - Fixed
      • No beeps & shutdown. Replaced by a graceful ROP chain exit & return to browser. This gives the opportunity to the user to dump after patching & validate the dump with littlebalup's py checker. As long as the user does not shutdown/restart, it's still possible to recover from bad patching.
      • Support for usb port 0,1,6 + sd/cf/ms cards.
      • Multi firmware support on all dumpers (4.10+) & DEX support on 4.81.
      • HDD editions for all dumpers & flash writer where a picture file placeholder is used for read/write operations.
      • Javascript refactoring for performance & efficiency.
      • ps3xploit.com will host the 2.0 update, no need for 3rd party sites.

      v1.0 (Thanksgiving 2017 Release)
      • Supports Direct OFW to CFW patching for All Phat and 2xxx Slim (minver 3.56 Dec 2010 and lower)
      • the NOR/NAND writer will just copy 3Mb of CoreOS data to both ros0 & ros1 in the flash memory.
      • There is only one version released for 4.82. The same hex patch file can be used on nor & nand.
      • It's as safe as possible, with a check for usb device & patch file making the exploit hang instead of corrupting flash if file is not found.
      • In case of corruption (extremely rare but could always happen), it's only a partial brick because no per console info ever gets erased so a hardware flasher could still be used if ever a recovery reboot was impossible



    • Frequency Asked Questions

      Will this jailbreak my SuperSlim?
      • NO,The Flasher Writer Tool is not Supported on the SuperSlim and a some very late Slim models, Howeever, PS3Xploit has a strong possiablity to eventually evolve into a HEN style exploit (that aspect will take some additional development.)

      Which PS3Xploits Tools are Compatible with my PS3 Console?

      Where can i find official info and details?
      Warning: Known Limitation
      • Due to the lack of proper checks after exiting the ROP chain, it is possible in some cases to obtain a success message despite an operation failure. For instance, if you choose a path where no device is plugged in, a dumper page will still display a success message despite the fact the dump save could not work. This limitation has already been addressed, the added operation checks will be part of an update to these PS3Xploit tools which will be released in the coming weeks, that update will be final, no more will come after it

        4.81 DEX CFW/OFW supported


        IMPORTANT NOTES:
        • It's essential not to flood the browser memory with junk before running the exploit. The reason for this is that due to javascript core memory usage limitations we are scanning several times a small range of browser memory (a few Mb) to find some essential data in RAM, if the memory is flooded then the range to scan becomes much larger & the probabilities that our data is found in the smaller range decrease dramatically....
        • So in short, never use the browser or use a homepage you cancel before running the exploit!
        • It is recommended to set your homepage temporarily to the exploit page you wish to use to ensure there is no memory flooding messing with the exploit initialization stage.
        Steps:
        1. Open the browser & browse to the ps3xploit.com website, go to the page of the exploit you need. Set the current page as browser homepage. Don't launch the exploit initialization. Close the browser.
        2. Open the browser. The exploit page will load automatically. Choose your dump path option.
        3. Press the exploit initialization button & wait until initialization succeeds. If it fails, follow the refresh/reload instructions on screen.
        4. Trigger the exploit by pressing the dump button.
        5. On success, validate your dump with the py checker tool.

        5. On success, retrieve the dump file from the PS3 XMB Photo section, rename it appropriately to dump.hex or whatever & validate your dump with the py checker tool.


      Usage Tips:
      • Try using a LAN connection or a solid WiFi connection during exploitation. A weak signal can cause problems.
      • If the exploit takes more than 5 minutes to work, reload page, browser, or restart console and try again.
      • ]If you are using a LAN connection and experience network issues, make sure all cables to router are in working order.

        WARNING: USE ONLY THE PROVIDED flash_482.hex AS IS. DON'T PATCH IT OR MODIFY IT OR YOU WILL BRICK *****
        • Verify flash_482.hex file on a flash drive and in the selected USB slot!
          • flash_482.hex MD5: d05be52f8d21700052fbd1fc0174acae
        • DO NOT USE ON CFW (Custom Firmware) (Only Supports OFW)
        • DO NOT USE ON PS3 Models 3xxx/4xxx (aka late Slim or Superslim models), you would brick those consoles.
        • ON SLIM 2xxx Consoles, always use MinVerChck PUP to ensure that the minimum installable firmware version is < 3.60, if ever the minimum version is >3.56, using the flash writer would partially brick your console!
        • USE ONLY ON 4.82 OFW

        IMPORTANT NOTES:
        • It's essential not to flood the browser memory with junk before running the exploit. The reason for this is that due to ps3 javascript core memory usage limitations we are scanning several times a small range of browser memory (a few Mb) to find some essential data in RAM, if the memory is flooded due to previous browsing then the range to scan becomes much larger & the probabilities that our data is found in the smaller range decrease dramatically..

        Steps:
        For best results with flash writer, here are the recommended steps.
        1. Install OFW 4.82 twice on the console you wish to flash to avoid the potential corruption error during CFW installation.
        2. Open the browser & browse to the ps3xploit.com website, go to the page of the exploit you need. Set the current page as browser homepage. Don't launch the exploit initialization. Close the browser.

        6. On success, load the ps3xploit.com flash dumper, dump the flash memory & validate it with py checker tool. Do NOT restart the console if ever the validation tool gives you errors/warnings on both ros0 & ros1 or you risk to partially brick your console. Report your problem instead.
        7. When you are satisfied with the dump validation, restart your console & install a 4.82 CFW.

      For info, there is no need to bother with the sprx plugins for ps3xploit. The only thing that matters is vsh. ;)

      Im at the part where my dump needs to be checked with PyPS3 checker, I drag the dump to checker.py a small window pops up but i dont get that read me file so I dont know if I can continue with jailbreaking or no! I have installed python.

      What to do?
    3. aknight720

      Don't use drap and drop, open a cmd window and type:-

      checker.py dump.hex
    4. bguerville

      The Readme does not pop up, it's included in the pyps3tools zip archive.
      Don't use drag & drop, use the command line as instructed in pyps3tools.

      Guys sorry for bothering you, Im old noob dad over my head with this one,
      i wrote checker.py dump.hex in cmc and got this:

      checker.py dump.hex
      'checker.py' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
      operable program or batch file.

      I was fallowing this video tutorial


      P.S. ps3 turned it self off, does that mean that I will have to do everything all over again or I can continue where I stopped

      You need to make sure that you change directory to where checker.py resides.

      If your PS3 has turned off, you best hope your nand dump is good, or it MAY never turn back on, but if the nand dump is good, then you can just continue to install the CFW.

      Help! I triggered the exploit v1.00 to 0B Slim with 4.82 OFW, then showed me "Success", beeped 3 times and powered off. Now its bricked, right after i turn on the console, immediately shutdown's itself. I am confused, cause i've already done this to 4 different consoles with the same flash drive and everything there was fine. Any ideas?

      I have this error PyPS3checkerError.jpg

      better version 1 with 3 final beeps for patch confirmation.
      Can I do version 1 now or brick risk ?
    9. bguerville
      bguerville
      You should have used 2.0, you would not have bricked like this because you would have had the opportunity to fix any error.
      Something must have been wrong in your setup, either because you were not on 4.82 CEX or used the wrong flash type or your hex was wrong/corrupted...
      Did you get a dump before flashing?
      Anyway the partial brick cannot be recovered from without a hardware flasher.
    10. littlebalup
      littlebalup
      forgot youtube tuts....
      you have to install python first in order to run .py scripts. Please, read this: https://github.com/littlebalup/PyPS3tools/blob/master/PyPS3checker/PyPS3checker_README.txt

      No, i dont have a dump. I am shocked. I opened the console with datecode 0B case and surprise! kte-001 motherboard...

      Is there a tool to recover the partial brick in the NOR backup? Of course, right after the dump with hw flasher...
    12. bguerville
      bguerville
      No there is no tool in particular.
      If your console is not cfw compatible, you will need to dump your nor & fix the dump by replacing the 3Mb of overwritten CoreOS in the active ROS with ofw CoreOS.
    13. M2KO
      M2KO
      Please
      I have this error with PyPs3checker
      PyPS3checkerError.jpg

      ps3 restarted several times after patch success can you install cfw?
    14. bguerville
      bguerville
      If you restarted the console, there is no point in validating the dump.
      You can install cfw now.

      @M2KO, are you sure you installed Python 2.7.x and not some lower 2.6.x
    16. M2KO
      M2KO
      ok thanks i worried that if i dump invalid cfw breaks ps3. So if i understood with reboot dump good to receive cwf.
    17. bguerville
      bguerville
      You took a small but unnecessary risk by rebooting before first checking that the patch was successful.
      The dump is necessary before reboot to avoid applying the patch if a mistake was made which would result in a partial brick.

      However since you rebooted & the XMB loaded ok, it means that all went well & you can install cfw.
    18. M2KO
      M2KO
      ok thanks so i proceed with installing cfw.I wasted time for worried about breaking ps3.
      Thanks again

      Hey everyone, 1st post here, and a potential noob question at that.

      I've had my PS3 since 2014-ish I guess, a FAT CECHA model. At that time, it looked like modding it would require a hardware flasher, since the OFW had been updated past what can be downgraded without it.

      Coming from a softmod background (PSP, Xbox, Wii, PS2) I was a bit turned off by needing some kind of physical flasher hardware. Does this method not use such a hardware flasher?

      Thanks!

      No need for hardware flashing. This is all software based! Follow the guide and you will be fine. I highly recommend modding it soon and installing a fan mod on the PS3 to help with the horrible cooling on those old consoles (i use webMAN-MOD on my CECHB!)
