Edi Tz via Twitter (video), @Lightning Mods also made an unofficial mirror that has been confirmed working in around 2 minutes here: https://psarchive.darksoftware.xyz/There's also a PS3 4.82 Exploit Tutorial and brief Tutorial by Lightning Mods with a video below, a PS3 CFW on Latest OFW 4.82 Guide by Zer0x FF available, and ask any questions in the comments below if you get stuck and need additional help.
From the video's caption, to quote: This will show you an example of porting the 4.81/4.82 NOR Dumper chain to 4.30 OFW.
Doing this should allow your PS3 to see the update.
I know the ps3 is telling me not to turn the power off, but it's been stuck on 99% for almost half an hour now.
I have this exact same problem but this didn't work.
I switch it back on from the back switch but that only puts the red light on so when I press the power button to switch it on I need to press and hold it again straight afterwards?
HOPE I WAS USEFULL PLZZ RATE ME AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELS EMAIL ME TO [email protected] DO PS1,2,3, DVD PLAYERS AND PC sorry for my spelling i am only 13 and i afrikaans BUT PLZZZ RATE ME.....please rate thans FULL system format it will take 2-3 hours so dont panic, just format it, now if it doesn't work just go to the nearest PC store and buy ur self a brand new laptop hard disk with any size u want and replace it with the old one, but format FIRST okkkkk tilz1 If your PS3 will not see the update most likely you did not save the file to the right place.
For anyone else with this problem, this is the solution Steps:1)Turn off ps3's main power with the switch from the back2)Turn it back on, and while it's turning on hold the front power button until the green light switched to red3) Once the front light turns red, go ahead and hit it one more time to turn it on normally What this does is it restarts the installation progress.
[QUOTE="amcallisterni"][QUOTE="jeff16950_demon"] Ok, I seem to have fixed the problem.
What this basically does it for the brief moment that your install DVD attempts to know what copy of Vista you are currently running it will be fooled into thinking you are running a Business Edition which is perfectly able to be updated.
Following their PS3 IDPS Dumper v0.2.3 for 4.82 OFW update, the PS3Xploit Team of @bguerville, @esc0rtd3w, @smhabib and W released both a Play Station 3 NOR / NAND Software Flash Writer and NOR Dumper to downgrade consoles without the need of a hardware flasher allowing those on Official Firmware (OFW) 4.82 to install Custom Firmware (CFW) finally.
