    At any time. Once you enable the QA flag it will remain active, even when you install other firmware over the current one. It's good practice to enable it, as it allows you to move up and down freely between firmware versions. It also removes the option to update via internet on the System Update menu, preventing accidental installation of OFW from Sony.

    Well, as it seems peoples have some issues to make a working 4.83 Dualboot firmware, I made one based on @haxxxen PS3MFW mod task (https://github.com/haxxxen/ps3mfw-builder-0.2.1-mod/blob/master/tasks/23_patch_db.tcl).

    So "littlebalup's" Dualboot 4.83: http://www.mediafire.com/file/nohp1m422o35ld2/DB_4.83_littlebalup.PS3UPDAT.PUP
    MD5 : 4CF60DAE7DA5071A5AD21803C9376E97

    Patched isoldr and spu_pkg_rvk_verifier to disable ecdsa protections and allows to install CFW4.83+ over it (tested!).
    Core OS patched files (lv0 and spu_pkg_rvk_verifier.self) have exact same size than the original ones.
    Code:
    isoldr.elf
    FileSize: 0x1453b bytes
    Search Pattern:  3FE1128518014206
    Mask Pattern:    FFFF00FFFFFFFFFF
    Replace Pattern: 40800003
    Replace Offset:  0x08
    ----PATCHED AT:000036C0
    ----PATCHED AT:00003EA8
    Code:
    spu_pkg_rvk_verifier.elf
    FileSize: 0xf7d7 bytes
    Search Pattern:  2100030304002A03
    Mask Pattern:    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
    Replace Pattern: 40800003
    Replace Offset:  0x08
    ----PATCHED AT:00003154

    Tested on both NOR (CECH-2004B) and NAND (CECHC04).

    There is a critical bug in the way how you typed the word "frimware"
    jk

    I guess probably is the most stable 4.83 firmware right now :)

    Hey Guys

    Having a slight problem.
    Updating from 8.42 to 8.43. Not 100% sure on what version its running but after trying different optipns (FERROX AND COBRA) Im met with an 8002F997 error! If I try and update through the service menu it tells me data is Currupt with another 800 code. Anyone else had this or know why Im getting it?

    The QA flag when enabled allows you to downgrade the firmware (ie install a lower firmware version) among various other things.
    Since 3.55, toggling the QA flag requires an exploited kernel with peek/poke capabilities. Currently, it can only be done on CFW.

    I believe QA means quality assurance, which is a production stage in manufacturing. @bguerville has covered the rest.

    Yes, but i think the "Quality Assurance" includes the official repair services
    The procedures used in the repair services are made by following a very strict sequence of actions, some of that actions involves using a "JIG USB" and a "JIG PIN MACHINE"
    With the JIG USB they can run code at boot time with high privileges, i guess they can enable QA there
    And the JIG PIN MACHINE is big, it connects with a lot of service connectors and testpads of the motherboard and it can replace all the software and can generate new IDs for evertyhing. Also, the JIG PIN MACHINE is conected online with sony servers (to update the databases with the info from the repaired PS3) in the same way is made at manufacturing time

    Will add after NAND test, since there was already an issue on one, want to be sure there is no issues here as well.

    Thanks for supplying.

    (Edit: added with a note and warning about NOR not being tested)

    I am going to apply a warning (if pups appear) to this until more eye's have seen it.

    Just because we have not seen any CFW releases from you in the past and well we have 9 variants of the firmware.

    its all about protecting user's the best we can, so many will create and release and its flawed and since we have not seen your work we will play a cautious role (of course once proved be great releases), but its an expected thing and nothing personal

    Most of the well known CFW devs will tell you i treated their initial releases the same way when they start doing CFW releases.
