A few days ago, the PS3Xploit folks, with help from Rebug’s Joonie, released their hybrid firmware which allows PS3Xploit to work on FW 4.84. As usual, when new versions get hacked, the mostly dormant PS3 scene wakes for a while and provides a couple of homebrew updates to keep hacked PS3s going!
SEN Enabler 6.2.2 with FW 4.84 support
SEN Enabler has been updated yet again and this time, with CFW 4.84 support
When Sony releases a new PS3 firmware, one of the first homebrew utilities to get updated is SEN Enabler because playing online requires you to be on the latest firmware. As FW 4.84 was released in February, SEN Enabler has been able to spoof FW 4.84 for a while but it now got support for FW 4.84 with version 6.2.2. The changelog for SEN Enabler 6.2.2 mentions the following:
Cobra 4.84 DEX is now supported
Spoof and hash fix support for 4.84 Cobra CFWs (CEX/DEX) has been added
Cobra was updated to version 8.0.1

HAN Toolbox updated to version 0.7
Sadly, later PS3 models are forced to get second class treatment as they don’t support CFW flashing tools but HAN Toolbox gives them some additional functionality!
If your PS3’s minimum firmware is above 3.56, CFW is a no-go and you have to be content with HAN. However, some developers on the PS3 scene (Pink1, DeViL303, Imn7) decided to give some more features to HAN-only PS3 models and released HAN Toolbox! Among other things, HAN Toolbox gives you file management capabilities and downloaders for demos,themes,wallpapers and NoPSN apps.
Now, this utility has been updated to version 0.7 with the following features:
Various compatibility updates relating to FW 4.84
Offline Rebooter, HAN Enabler, Debug PKG Enabler have been updated with 4.84 support
An offline File Copier for 4.84 has been added
An offline Temperature Reader & Database Rebuilder with support for FW 4.82/4.84 has been added
PS3Xploit Basic and Extra tools have been updated
Coldboot, Font and Wave downloaders have been added

Irisman and many other PS3 utilities have been updated with FW 4.84 support!
Other than the releases mentioned above, the following PS3 releases have also been made available in the last few days:
While non-maintenance update PS3 releases are far and few between, it is quite nice to see that developers get back to update essential homebrew utilities this quickly when a new FW is released and/or when it gets hacked!
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.
