    I’m going to assume this exploit needs to be reactivated on every reboot (like non-Ensō HENKaku). That being said…

    So while running the exploit, don’t use your main PSN account. But say you install a backup (a legitimate reason would be for owners of physical copies who don’t want to insert the disc each time they play)… can you log into your main PSN account to play it?

    I’m guessing the answer is no because it seems the exploit is required to run resigned packages, and I assume a PS3 game falls under the “package” category.

    Though I’ll admit I don’t fully understand the concept of packages on Sony consoles. As such I never even tried to use the package installer on the PSVita when I had it on a lower firmware.

    This is such such great news for all us people who don’t want to buy any games and just want to steal them like this will allow us to. Great news!

    All hail PS3, better games than PS4 and backwards compatibility

    So is there an advantage of 4.81 over 4.82?
    I’m currently on 4.81 but I kinda want to upgrade so I can use Netflix without it being a hassle…

    I’m on 4.81 now but I’m thinking about updating so I can use Netflix…

  17. nebu_187 says:

    great!!! but still not unhappy about selling my ”unhackable to buy a cfw compatible console

  18. Lodochan says:

    Noob question here, does this mean I can install rebug 4.82 after installing the exploit?

  19. Nanashi says:

    Good thing Dragon’s Dogma left me with a good number of extra PSN accounts that I’ll never touch again with the PC version out.

  20. Jrigdon says:

    So maybe a dumb question but could this maybe lead to installing psx games onto the vita via the pkgs? Like spyro for instance. And if so would it be only limited to the signed in account for the vita or matchng id number?

  21. Proxiito says:

    Is it safe for super slim model?

  22. k3nn says:

    i just need to be sure guys!!! during the release of PS3Xploit sometime last year, coz they say it is for ps3. i was excited coz i own a slim 3xxx but when i read the actual readme exploit and somesuch, my excitement turned into dismay coz there it says: not for PS3 slim 3xxx or 4xxx (some can do 25xx but i need to use minvercheck to be sure). so this time around, i am not sure if this is for real? is this thing working for slims 3xxx and superslims 4xxx?

  23. I would love to be a guest writer. I’m an admin over on a rather large facebook group for PS Hacking and I link in a lot of your articles. But to guest write would be amazing! I’m proficient in all open hacking scenes and I follow most of the information directly at its roots just like the writers here already do. I’ll keep an eye on my email if your interested.

    is there an actuall release of han of ethanol following ?

  26. KyoujinMatt says:

    So i have a ps3 CECH 3004B and on wololo it says that any console with 4.82 is fine but on the ps3xploit page about writer there is a warning saying
    DO NOT USE ON PS3 Models 3xxx/4xxx (aka SuperSlims / Late Slim models) you will brick those console.
    And since my ps3 ihas a model 3xxxB can i use it or nah?

    Seems to be purely focused on piracy right now… I can’t really think of any expensive PS3 exclusives that I’d want to pirate, so hopefully people focus on homebrew in the coming weeks.

    I wanted stuff like more functional Dualshock 4 drivers but I don’t know if that requires CFW or not.

  28. jens jenn j says:

    can you rip your own physical PS3 games directly on the PS3? i am on a Mac (High Sierra) so any technique needing a “PC” i’m *** outta luck.
