Hot off the heels of his previous release, condorstrike has released an updated version of his Condor Updater hoomebrew application for custom firmware PS3s. For those who do not know, Condor Updater allows you to put the PS3 into a pseudo-recovery mode for installing firmware updates, whether going from MFW to MFW or or MFW to OFW, as condorstrike explains below. Now sporting version 3.1, this release now runs on any custom firmware with the recovery option. (2.50 and above) Here’s what condorstrike said in his release notes:
HI GUYS, AFTER RELEASING CONDOR UPDATER 3 I REALIZED IT WASN’T COMPLETE, SO HERE’S CONDOR UPDATER V3.1 WHICH NOW WORKS ON ANY CFW WITH RECOVERY OPTION (2.50 AND ABOVE). SO NOW THE SAME APP WILL INSTALL AND WORK FOR YOU ON CFWS 3.55, 4.25, 4.30, DOWNGRADE PUP, WHATEVER… IT IS ESPECIALLY USEFUL FOR THOSE WITH DAMAGED POWER BUTTONS OR FOR INSTALLING SAME VERSIONS OF MFWS OVER OFW/MFWS OR GOING BACK FROM AN MFW TO AN OFW, OR ANY TIME IMO… I NEVER TRUST XMB UPDATES.
Now with that being said, you can grab the latest version of Condor Updater below. Remember that this only works with PS3s with NOR flashes, not NAND flashes. If you aren’t sure which one your PS3 has, check out this table over at the PS3DevWiki.
