    thats wierd i thought ps3 is dead almost 2 years ago..

    • spok

      well even there are no new PS3 games CFW still offers more than PS4 with webkit – Multiman/Showtime, PSN online, PSX/2 support…

      • peter james smith

        yes the exploit is a great thing making the ps3 the best console ever made ,,and its a shame they work against us ,not with us ,,yes i run the update on 1 of my systems 4.83 …awaiting rebug 4.83

    • Quake

      Fifa 2019 was just released. Probably did this to counter the flood of CFW users on there. Maybe, maybe not.

      They probably already had it in the mix just waiting for a release. Who knows.

    Praising the effort of the PS3 hacking team, PS3xploit HAN is too much pain in the *** for the super slim users anyways.

  4. rjshooter

    LOL Sony.

  5. I was wondering if they going to bother this time lol

  6. thank god i got CFW back when PS3xploit 1.0 came out

  7. Alex

    I’m sure 4.83 can still be exploited somehow, however assuming the worst, that the got it very secure and bug free this time, I wonder if all the super slim ps3s could be downgraded back to 4.82 with one of those e3 flashers, it’s just that I’ve never heard of someone attempting a downgrade on a super slim before so I wasn’t sure if it would work.

    Looks like s simple proxy bypass is all you need. At least for now.

  9. MaxXimus

    Look on the bright side. At least I have cfw and this isn’t a problem for me at all. I am looking forward to the development of a 4.83 Rebug REX.

  10. Charles Fasano

    The Proxy Bypass still works for now.

    Is there a way to access PS Store on PS3 without updating? I want to be able to download games I bought but don’t want to update.

    • joegan

      You can use any number of programs to spoof the current firmware version. I believe the one I use is either SEN Enabler or PSNPatch

      • Kris

        Forgive me, are you saying I can use a spoof, then activate my ps+ account? I want to back up some copy protected games (Demon’s Souls & Dark Souls)

    Guess I’ll hang on to my E3 Flasher after all. Thanks for the news.

    Can you even play online with CFW on 4.82 without being banned?

    • twisty

      Yes you can. I have been playing without any problems up until this new firmware came out. Now when i try to sign in, the system prompts me that there is a new update available.

    • Zero

      I can confirm that you can play online with CFW on 4.82. I’ve played a few multiplayer rounds of Peace Walker a few months ago. Still not banned.
      I thought it was just if we use cheats, or make it obvious enough that we’re on a CFW, that will get us banned?

  15. Sonybalogny

    I have tried to access online by using spoofs to no avail on rebug 4.82 cobra, any solutions to bypass these patches Sony keeps applying lol?

  16. tri

    *** SONY

  17. bobrocks95

    Do I need to quickly make a HAN PSN account, or am I already too late to be able to activate it online?

  18. JustMe

    Showing a picture of a PS3 super slim and then talking of “System stability improvement” is kinda weird.

  19. Dantenerosas

    Is there any way to sign in into PSN on 4.82 HAN? Wanted to download some of my bought stuff but don’t wanna give up PS2 and PSP emulation

    • Kitsumi

      If you have the licenses on your PS3, you could use PSNDLE to get URIs to the packages and install them manually.

  20. Thomas

  21. jj
