you will never be able to install a CFW pup on a 3.56+ OFW because the pups are signed by sony with a key that is not stored anywhere in the ps3, meaning unless the key is somehow leaked,its next to impossible to get it.
BUT.. since we are now able to decrypt the newest firmwares because of the lv0 keys leak, we are able to study the code of the newest firmwares and find a vulnerability that will let us exploit the newest firmwares and let us do things like flash our nands without a hardware flasher,patch the loaders in mem,and do all other kinds of things. im sure there are many people already studying the code and looking for a hole somewhere.
hi there, my ps3 is on ofw 4.30, i used the pup to check the minimum formware and it is 2.70. To downgrade i must use a flasher right? Whats the difference between e3 flasher and e3 flasher limited?
yea you should use a hardware downgrade either via e3 flasher or progskeet .but remember E3 is only for NOR PS3 while Progskeet works on both NOR/NAND PS3.
and about E3 Flasher Limited i think it comes with extra stuff like esata cable ,etc.
where can i get a guide to install a dual boot system using e3 flasher limited?
I don't think E3 ever followed up with the promise of a dual boot solution.

There's a good chance that there will never be a new exploit, people have already searched ofw 3.41 hardcore and if an exploit was found we would have CFW already. I don't think the new keys that have been found will do us much good.
We'd need the keys from sony themselves. I doubt the Chinese will do much good other than continue to shove dongles on people.
Your best option is to spend 100$ on an E3 flasher or wait a minimum of 1 year for a miracle.
I don't think Sony just has the keys stored on a server, they're probably locked up tight.
I highly doubt we're going to find a ****ing loop-hole, I don't think CFW 4.30 is much more different than CFW 3.55.
As a result you'll be waiting for the next 4 years, Anyone stating otherwise is being optimistic as ****. The only reason we even have 3.55 CFW is because fail0ver flow found the keys for us, I don't think that'll happen again since Sony Patched the shit out of that exploit.
