Just a day after the 3.72 PS Vita Firmware update and following their previous revision, today Sony pushed live a new PS3 System Software 4.85 Update and although their PlayStation Site hasn't been updated with it yet chances are the changelog includes more of the usual 'improves the quality of the system performance' security fixes. :sleep:

:alert: Needless to say, it's NEVER a wise idea to update PlayStation Firmware in order to make use of such things as PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW), downgrading, homebrew, Webkit exploits, etc.

Download: PS3 Firmware 4.85 (EU) Update / PS3 Firmware 4.85 (US) Update / PS3 Firmware 4.85 (AU/NZ) Update / PS3 Firmware 4.85 (JP) Update / dev_flash-485.zip (165.2 MB - Extracted Hashes) via VTSTech

As always, if anyone tests out PS3 version spoofers for PSN online access and to help avoid bans let us know if they're working or give THIS tutorial a try... although historically PSN works for a brief period (a week or so) after each PS3 Firmware update goes live so we'll update this article as PlayStation 3 scene devs further examine it and report their findings.

:arrow: Update: Sony's official changelog for PS3 Firmware 4.85 is now available, and as expected states only the following:

System Software Update 4.85

Main features in system software update version 4.85:
  • This system software update improves the quality of the system performance.
Spoiler: PS3 4.85 OFW

Why we must update to OFW? Just patiently waiting for 4.85 Rebug, he-he

P.S. don't worry, you'll get 4.85 HFW soon, for sure!

@The Devil, just download 4.84 CFW again, and reinstall it through recovery. You must still has access to recovery with power button...

There are a few PlayStation 3 v4.85 Custom Firmware releases thus far including PS3 4.85 Overflow CFW and SPY 4.85 COBRA 8.01, but typically most hold off for an updated Rebug to arrive which is the most popular and thoroughly tested.

We'll update the existing threads with them all as time permits in the PS3 CFW and Hacks section, and likely mainpage Rebug's 4.85 PS3 CFW whenever it surfaces.
