    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.

    • WARNING 4.83 PS3 Firmware is NOW LIVE
      PS4_4.83.png

      Official Changelog via Sony:

      New for 4.83
      • This system software update improves system performance.

    • ps3xploit-logo.png
      Current Status for 4.83
      • PS3Xploit (for CFW enabled Console) - Do not update to 4.83 OFW (From 4.82 CFW you can update to a 4.83 CFW when available)
      • PS3Xploit HAN (for non CFW Compatible Consoles) - Do not update to 4.83, or you will lose various abilities of HAN

      Official Ps3Xploit Response via @bguerville

      RECOMMENDATION FROM PS3XPLOIT TEAM:
      FOR THE MOMENT, DO NOT UPDATE TO 4.83 UNLESS YOU HAVE DECIDED TO GIVE UP USING HAN PERMANENTLY ON THE CONSOLE.

      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.

      2.
      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

      So i have cobra rebug 4.8.2 (CEX) installed on my ps3 and since today i was using psnpatch and psninja to log in to my psn account and play black ops 2 online.As of today though , in order for me to log in to my psn account i am asked to upgrade to 4.83, something that i really dont want to do. Is there a way to continue logging in to my psn account without upgrading to 4.83 ?

      Is possible someway to make a modified version of the YouTube and Netflix app with run without a Playstation Network connection, The actualization 4.83 is here.

      Same thing happened with Crunchyroll premium free pkg

      Thx:adoration:

      yes, that will work, as it will not allow a CEX PUP install until restored from exploit or PUP in recovery. check the Debug Settings Installer thread or use SPRX replacer to just replace software_update sprx. there are separate files for 4.81/4.82 and after enabled, you must use the DEX option on exploit page if using Debug Settings.

      its not recommended for everyone, and the process seems to confuse noobs :)
      AT YOUR OWN RISK as always.

      I sure hope it's nothing but a performance update. I wish the devs would test the new update thoroughly and report back.

      First the PS VITA on 3.69, now the PS3 on 4.83, why Sony its even bother with two legacy consoles!? Oh well, let the Rebug 4.83 come :D

      According to a Reddit post 4.83 just updates the BluRay-keys to keep it able to play new Blu-Ray Movies. ;)

      This is something new, correct?

      I swear, I was playing GTA 4 online just the other week without any issues or patches... now it constantly asks me to update system software but I refuse as it may destroy the CFW.

      Either way, if someone has a fix, please advise.

      This is very unfortunate news for OFW users. I really believed that Sony had given up on the PS3, to focus all of their attention on the PS4. I guess I underestimated them.

      Well, even if HAN is totally patched post 4.82, not all hope is lost. I still have an unreleased method to play converted disk game backups without CFW I found back on 4.81. I don't believe Sony have fixed this in 4.83.

      It's obviously nothing special compared to HAN, but it's a way for OFW users to play some of their backups without CFW, at the very least.

      I want to thank all of the people involved in the development of HAN, you guys have done great work. I hope it hasn't been completely patched, but even if that is the case, I'll be keeping my OFW console on 4.82. The benefits of HAN far outweigh that of online play, IMO.

      Does anyone still trying with backup injection method on the latest firmware yet? This method seems to be the last resort.

      Anyone know if there's a work around to get netflix / youtube working without PSN ??? I've seen some "homebrew" netflix / YT packages around the net that don't require you to be signed in to PSN. I just don't want to screw anything up by installing one.

      Do these work on HAN? Has anyone tried them? No chance in hell I'm updating to 4.83 lmao, just about the only thing I play with online anymore is Dark Souls and it's totally fine in offline mode lol.

      Been wondering the same thing. Pretty sure there's already mods for this but I've yet to try any of these NO-PSN apps I've seen due to the fact that I do not know if it will work with HAN. But right about now is the perfect time to get started and find out lol.

      Most of the nopsn apps compiled by esc0rtd3w are not compatible with HAN.
      Very few of those are apps (those that don't require patching any binary encrypted file) can work with HAN.
      But I can already tell you that Netflix & YT will not work with HAN.
