3.41 demo firmware needed
3.41 demo firmware needed –
hey guys have any of you got the 3.41 demo firmware? i need it for the jailbreak please help
He's asking for the Demo Firmware, not the regular firmware....
I've been looking for it for a while now.
So far I found an Italian site with it, but I have't got a chance to try it yet.
The readme in the zip file is in plain English, but I'm not sure about whats in the PUP.
To locate it, google " +AGGIORNAMENTO PS3 KIOSK FIRMWARE rev. 3.41 ", select the first site on the list and click on the red "SCARICA IL FIRMWARE" button on the upper left of that page.
Hope this helps.
What's different in the demo firmware?
I'm guessing this is a version they run at public places to showcase games or the system
Yeah, and on Kiosk units you have to use that firmware, you can't use retail firmware. Also still no JB payload that works correctly on these units it seems :/

The PS3 Demonstration unit is identical (hardware-wise) to the consumer PS3 and the PS3 Test units, with the only difference in software installed and the included xxxGB harddrive.
Although the PS3 Demonstration Unit is locked into demonstration mode, you can unlock this mode by entering a secret unlock code (those with firmware less than version 1.5 need not enter code). To unlock, navigate the XMB and highlight the Settings->Security Settings icon. Then press and hold these four buttons: L2, R2, Select, and Square. If the PS3 has firmware less than 1.5, the machine should be unlocked from demonstration mode. For firmware 1.5 and greater, you will be prompted to enter a four digit security code. Depending on the firmware installed (displayed on the corner of the screen), the codes are (NTSC and PAL PS3 may have different codes for a given firmware): ...
We'll be able to install them on our retails if RichDevX releases the Sony Jig payload.

You can pick up Demo units on Ebay for much less than a normal PS3.
The catch is, even on a CECHA01 unit with full PS2 Hardware, you cannot run PS1/PS2 titles, you cannot use PSN, (as of now) it does not JailBreak and it's a pain to have to keep unlocking the unit every time you want to use it.
(You can set the unlock code to something simple, like 0000, but it's still a pain.)
As best as can be determined, the Demo units will need a different payload to work with Jailbreak, but with the limited number of people that have them, there has not been too much interest.
