    PlayStation 3 had an official firmware update released with the drop of system update 4.84. Below i provided a small chart for people on other firmwares and their hacks. Currently it unknown what prompted the update, could of been a simple maintenance update, which what appears to be the case on initial inspections. Could the update have something to do with PS Plus free games ending on the service? Very well could be but that is speculation at this point. PSX-Place will keep you updated of all the changes this update brings. The update has not patched the recent StoreHaxx release which is not something most will use as its simply an IDPS dumper currently (w/ other potentials possiable). Even on 4.83 and looking to exploit, you may want to wait to update until devs in this thread mainly @bguerville and @esc0rtd3w give the okay.

    Checkout this thread for FUTURE 4.84 releated released.


    • From PS3FWBot on twitter:
      "14/02/2019 03:10 CET: Sony pushed new PS3 FW 4.8400. Previous FW was 4.8300"

      • 4.82 HAN user's do not update
      • 4.83 and lower CFW user's do not update. (until a 4.84 CFW is released)
      • User waiting for 4.83 progress, do not update
      • Consoles that are not exploited but on 4.82 and lower do not update (If you want to exploit it)

      That's what its for, REBUG in CEX so it should work. On DEX you use another method to get online.

      Oops stupid me.....

      it's not spoofed, the syscon is changed so you can install it over the top of 4.84 DB CFW, if you want it spoofed you'll need to use SEN Enabler

      I didn't update to 4.83 OR 4.84...and guess what... everything is still working perfect.
      If you "accidentally" upgraded... welcome to the firmware you CHOSE to update to.
      Enjoy your system, as I am currently enjoying mine! :*)

      I don't how anyone can "accidentally" update??? You are given fair warning before the system updates in the first place..... :sang banghead::sang banghead::sang banghead:

      I am now going to give an example....

      You sign into PSN.... you get a message immediately...> ( This is a Firmware Update!!! )

      "The latest system software is required to sign in and use this service. You will now be signed out and the system will begin to download the software, Do you wish to continue? Yes..No.."

      When you select No you will be signed out and returned to the XMB.... FFS...:sang banghead:

      An App update is this.....

      You are already signed in and go to use an app eg. Amazon Video.... An get a message...
      > ( This is an App update )

      "The latest software version is required to use this program. The app will now quit and begin to down the latest version... Do you wish to continue? Yes...No...?"

      Or be smart and use the NoPSN app versions for HAN and CFW. And make sure "Auto Update" is turned OFF all the time.

      Its really that simple....:D

      Any reported updates from Rebug 4.82 CEX ? It's supposed to block recovery updates i think it doesn't work with 4.84

      If you have auto update disabled and then disabled the internet connection before going into recovery mode you should be fine. But i use DEX with REBUG.

      I take this is why you been asking about jail breaking in the other thread?

      Anyone who says this will have their threads shut down immediately.

      I do agree it's only a matter of time though.
