On Tuesday, Sony decided that the PlayStation 3 didn’t have enough firmware updates and went ahead to release Firmware 4.86. However, this firmware didn’t change much in the security department so it was exploitable from the moment it was released. As a result, we have now received Rebug 4.86.1 LITE & PS3HEN 3.0.1, both of which are hacking solutions for FW 4.86!
Rebug 4.86.1 LITE released for CFW-capable PlayStation 3 consoles
Rebug is one of the most popular CFWs for the PlayStation 3 and now, a FW 4.86-based version is out!
If you always want to be on the latest (and not particularly greatest) firmware version on your PlayStation 3, then Team REBUG has you covered as they’ve just released Rebug 4.86.1 LITE which is based on OFW 4.86. Team REBUG offers some of the most popular CFWs for CFW-capable PlayStation 3 consoles (i.e. minFW of 3.56 or below) which come with a good deal of features including the ability to toggle the QA flag, boot into OtherOS, the Rebug Toolbox, a Package Manager and more.
As per its change log, which is in the link below, Rebug 4.86.1 LITE comes with:
An OFW 4.86 base
Rebug Toolbox 2.03.04 which comes with support for 16 languages
Improved Stability which undoubtedly stems from the rock-solid OFW 4.86
You may grab Rebug 4.86.1 LITE for your PlayStation 3 from links found at the bottom of its release post on the official Rebug website. The team’s currently looking for someone to provide a DEX OFW PUP for REX/D-REX release in the future – the latest REX release is Rebug 4.84.2.
PS3HEN 3.0.1 is out with FW 4.86 support!
PS3HEN 3.0.1 comes with HFW 4.86 support together with some other under-the-hood improvements for all your noCFW hacking needs!
For those who have a PlayStation 3 that can’t do CFW (min FW of 3.60 or above), they needn’t fear not being able to hack their console thanks to PS3HEN. This hacking solution gives numerous CFW-like features such as allowing one to run homebrew and use backup managers meaning that it allows one to get the most out of their noCFW console.
Less than 24 hours ago, PS3HEN 3.0.1 was released which comes with the following:
Support for HFW 4.86(.1)
This is Hybrid Firmware with an exploitable browser that can be installed over OFW 4.86
Some COBRA PS3MAPI changes with 3 added functions including:
It’s now possible to write to some previously protected memory regions
