I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    Does anyone else have an issue with the redtrainer or the webclient saying the your not on a playstation too?

    My PS3 shut down after the exploit. The console started but after a minute in the XMB the console shut down with 3 red lights. I don’t know what I would do, but If I repair it, do I need to reapply the exploit? No CFW was installed.

    Would this work on a dech-2001a model. Its got a 120GB Drive and on Firmware 4.81
    Yes its a DEX system. No its not a converted CECH-2001a system.
    Gracias

    My PS3 freezed after the message “success”.
    Waited 15 min and turned my PS3 off.
    Did everything again and after the success message and 15 seconds i heard the 3 beeps and it turned off.
    Then i installed the modded CFW.

    THANKS !

    A question i can’t find :

    I now have the modified Rebug 4.81.2 on my both PS3’s.
    Can i install any other NOT modified CFW now or will it brick ?

    • kyle says:

      Good question, does anyone know the answer? I think everything is fully functional from the CFW 4.81.2 though either way right?

    Worked like a charm – not first time but second time. However, I had to bookmark the page first – delete history, cookies and cache, close and open explorer again and then browsed the bookmarked. Thanks a lot guys!!!!!!

    Hi thank you for your work on this but one question. Before testing like in step 1, do i have to be on 4.82? If my console is not on it already, when should I install it? Thank you

    […] week, I fetched my Playstation 3 from the cupboard I had hidden it in for way too long to install PS3Xploit (and actually allow me to get back to coding for consoles!) It took me a while to setup the PS3 […]
