4.85 Official Firmware is now Live !!! Here is what you need to know
Well it took awhile from Sony, but its confirmed they finally got around to pushing a new firmware update with the release of version 4.85 for the PS3. It appears (developers are still investigating) Sony has essentially given up that classic "Cat & Mouse" game with the PS3 Homebrew Scene. While it was apparent during the past two exploits, as they went nearly a year (with each exploit) without seeing a patch for a softmod, that has kind of shown Sony's hand with its dealing and future intentions with the PS3. Somewhat surprising (since PSN is still active) but it makes sense, with the PlayStation 5 on the doorstep. While the PS3 is being phased out in many ways, the Security Team has been a dead sector over at Sony PS3 HQ for sometime, but then again they may not of been the best team for the task, as we all know what happened back on firmware 3.55 and the "oh shit" moment that team went through with the bad security implementation that was discovered and thus lead to PS3 CFW for all of us, so maybe that team was not so bad .
(PS3 on 4.85 OFW, scanning USB & recognizing new 4.85.1)
So, now that 4.85 has been leashed upon us, What does it mean for the user's who have exploited with exploits like PS3HEN? As expected 4.85 will be no match for developer's (as Sony did not put much of a fight or effort it appears in the early prognosis), HOWEVER ITs ADVISED TO STAY ON 4.84? Why? The simple answer is everything else needs to catch up, while this was a maintenance update and early observation not much was to address the current exploits from early research from community developer's. So, while the pasters look green to this point there are tools and exploits that need to be updated and if you go on 4.85 now its will be nothing there yet and boring. Enjoy 4.84 until 4.85 is ready. How long can this process take? a few days maybe a week, depends on how busy various developer's are at this time. Currently we have one of the pieces already out of the way with the release of 4.85.1 Hybrid Firmware from @Joonie. Again its not advised to update at this time. This release is for developer's only at this time so various projects can be updated.
(PoC that tools can work on 4.85)
What if I do update? Well, you will have the ability to exploited system again it appears but not much to do quite yet. Its like having an exploited system on day 1 and having no homebrew created or tools yet. So that is why its advised to stay on 4.84 for a bit longer.. This is even the case for Custom Firmware user's as we will see various 4.85 Custom Firmware's released in the coming days/weeks and it will not be advised to jump on those right away. They will be the newest, but you get less and we can't stress that enough until evberything around it is updated also. So just be patient and let the devs work and most importantly be respectful to the devs.

4.85.1 REBUG LITE CFW with new COBRA v8.2 ReleasedDeveloper Joonie of Team Rebug has announced today the latest cfw release (following 4.84.2 rex) of the REBUG brand. This is not the iconic REX flavor of PS3 Custom Firmware, which is a hybrid of dex/cex, In order for the creation of REX, the team is dependent and still in search for file's needed for the creation of REX (4.85 DEX PUP). However, they have the LITE version (a CEX based Cobra CFW) ready to go for 4.85 user's seeking a new 4.85 CFW. This is a welcomed update from Team Rebug as the 4.85 PS3 CFW landscape has been a bit light in choices (for 4.85). So having the developer's with one of the best name's in Custom,Firmware development is great to see now as an available option. Also, they have updated the Cobra payload to now version 8.2 & also the Rebug Toolbox has been updated (toolbox addon requires installation in "install package files" pkg is waiting for you there after installing REBUG) You can checkout all the feature's/patche's in the provided list below for this PlayStation 3 Custom FirmWare and then checkout full details/documentation of the release at rebug.me the official website (direct link found at bottom of article).Continue reading
[Update] multiMAN 04.85.01 - Official Update from deank adds 4.83-4.85 CFW Support + PS3HEN SupportUPDATE 04.85.01 - Improved PS3HEN Support Added
Original: Appears that developer @deank has pushed an official update for the popular PS3 Homebrew known as multiMAN (or mM). We have not seen an official update since firmware 4.82 (albeit from some unofficial modified version, that were not ideal), there was not much of a need for an update since the previous official update of 4.82 worked fine as is on 4.83 /4.84 / 4.85. In that time Sony's changes in 4.8x era of firmware were minimal and presented little changes for the PS3. The only thing that was missing was firmware detection of 4.83 and greater, as it was impossible for the application to know the offsets of future firmware's. However, deank quietly pushed an update via the applications online update. This new update provides official support for CFW 4.83 - 4.85 which will recognize and properly fix the cosmetic issue and display the new firmware presents.
Other then that its the same old classic multiMAN, which is not a bad thing as this was and still is an iconic applications for the PS3. This powerful Homebrew is packed with tons of functionality for your cfw enabled PS3, Regarding support for PS3HEN user's I am not sure as of writing this if this version supports PS3HEN fully, (see 04.85.01 update) nothing is mentioned so we should not assume. On brewology there is an unofficial multiMAN 4.84 PS3HEN version (* in previous releases), but not sure how compatible many of the feature are (maybe we could have user's comment below with some feedback regarding ps3hen) PS3HEN user's in general should also realize that many PS3 Homebrew apps were created with CFW in mind. so there can be compatibility issue with some features..Note that ManaGunZ is supporting PS3HEN w/ a special PS3HEN mode that will disable the CFW features.Continue reading
