      2. In this case, just press off button, restart console, wait for filesystem to be checked, then re-try hack.
      3. This may happen even after "Suceeded!" warning. That alone means nothing, don't proceed any further unless PS shuts down.

    Frequently Asked Questions & Additional Notes

    Why am I getting a corrupted file error?

    • Redo the exploit and try again

    Will this jailbreak my SuperSlim?
    • NO, (PS3Xploit has strong possibility to eventually evolve into a HEN style exploit (that aspect will take some additional development and time, at this time PS3Xploit exploit has not evolved enough)
    Is a Quick Compatible Console Chart Available ?
    Can I install a CFW before 4.82, such as Rebug 4.81 or an earlier CFW?
    • Yes, however you must Toggle QA Flag. Once the Token is activated you have the ability to then freely jump CFW versions. (see below for details)
    How do I Toggle QA Flag?
    • When on a CFW download & install [Click here to view the link][Click here to view the link] (Note: Will just show a black screen then reboot the PS3 and returns to xmb. A Restart is RequiredA fterwards though or cfw syscalls will be disabled (meaning your CFW patches will be disabled until the next boot, so a reboot is required after the Toggler exits back to the XMB.)
    Should i use the "999 Downgrader" vs "Toggle QA" to install a different CFW?
    • No, installing the "999 downgrader" PUP on a 3.56 minver console, it will brick the console, simply just [Click here to view the link] and play itsafe and is so simple to move from CFW versions (up and down from version to version).
    How do i know for sure if my PS3 Model is compatible ?
    • You must have a PS3 Console that has a Factory Firmware of 3.56 and below.
    • To check, its easy with this simple tool for OFW, Download [Click here to view the link]
    • Then place the .pup file on a FAT32 USB Flash Drive in a PS3/UPDATE folder (create path if needed)
    • Now on the PS3 XMB goto Setting ->> System Update >>> Update via Media Storage
    • Once shown on the list select the PUP and install, shortly after there will be a message showing the factory firmware the console was shipped,
    • For this we want 3.56 and below.
    • ANYTHING HIGHER THEN 3.56 IS NOT ABLE INSTALL A CFW. Sorry this will not work for your console, but there could be a HEN (Homebrew Enabler) possible for running homebrew, but additional research and time is needed for achievement, additional details can be [Click here to view the link].
    What is the basic purpose of the Writer & Dumper Tools Release?
    • The dumper is to get a backup of the nor chip
    • The writer is to jailbreak your console. (Adding a patch to OFW to allow CFW installation)

    Hi. Thank you for the guide, it helped a lot.

    However, I'm unable to install REBUG 4.81.2. QA_Toggle app installed and ran once.

    FERROX COBRA version works, however.

    According to the webserver as I was attempting to trigger the exploit, it failed 10 times in a row... Is this something I should be worried about?

    It can take a few tries. Make sure you're following the steps correctly and you're starting from a blank webpage.

    Its taken some people upwards to 30 tries

    Check your wifi

    Ok gUYS. I almost sure of this, please fix me if i'm wrong.

    1. I'm in 4.81 firmware. I must be in 4.82 right?, i can update it normally right?.
    2. My Slims says in the back: CECH 2501B. According to the table, i can do this process right?.
    3. My Ps3 Slim was hacked back in the days, but later i decides to go legal until today. Even its formatted. This is not a problem right?. I mean: Ps3 3.40 >> Hacked 3.41 >> Ps3 4.81 legal. Thank You Very Much In Advance !!!

    Wow... I'm speechless. After all this time of waiting for either someone to make a new exploit or get a hackable console and finally giving up, this just comes around 2-4 months ahead of time, and just... works. I finally have CFW on my PS3, just like that. No fuss. Just a restart or two... It's hard for me to believe, and I'm currently looking at the Rebug XMB.

    If you're already jailbroken just go through the normal hacked console update steps. Why make things difficult and start from the beginning?
