Writer Help


Due to the lack of proper checks after exiting the ROP chain, it is possible in some cases to obtain a success message despite an operation failure. For instance, if you choose a path where no device is plugged in, a dumper page will still display a success message despite the fact the dump save could not work. This limitation has already been addressed, the added operation checks will be part of an update to these PS3Xploit tools which will be released in the coming weeks, that update will be final, no more will come after it.

    For best results with the flash writer, here are the recommended steps.
    • Install OFW 4.82 twice on the console you wish to flash to avoid the potential corruption error during CFW installation.
    • Open the browser & browse to the ps3xploit.com website, go to the page of the exploit you need. Set the current page as browser homepage. Don't launch the exploit initialization. Close the browser. ​
    • Open the browser. The exploit page will load automatically. Choose your path option or download the flash_482.jpg file if you use the hdd edition.​
    • Press the exploit initialization button & wait until initialization succeeds. If it fails, follow the refresh/reload instructions on screen.
    • Trigger the exploit.​
    • On success, load the ps3xploit.com dumper, dump the flash memory & check it with py checker tool. Don't restart if ever the validation tool gives you errors/warnings in both ros0 & ros1 or risk a partial brick.​
    • Restart your console & install a 4.82 CFW.​

    Usage Tips:
  • Try using a LAN connection or a solid WiFi connection during exploitation. A weak signal can cause problems.​
  • If the exploit takes more than 5 minutes to work, reload page, browser, or restart console and try again.​
  • If you are using a LAN connection and experience network issues, make sure all cables to router are in working order.​​
