E3 Team Releases CFW 4.30

October 28, 2012

Today the E3 Team has released E3 CFW 4.30. This custom firmware includes a file manager and reports suggest that PSN is working to. Many are wondering if this will truly be a completely free custom firmware and hope that E3 is not trying to somehow rake in new sales for the hardware flashers. Although with recent brick reports on Rogero’s custom firmware, I would think that sales on their hardware flashers would have increased.


Here is the quote from the E3 website:

The E3TEAM has released the latest E3 CFW4.30 for free. The bricking issue has been improved. Just download here and enjoy. (Pass is ‘ www.e3-tech.net ‘) Here we mention to E3 flasher users that you do not need to solder a wire to use the latest upgrade.bin file to unbrick a console.


  • You still need to be on CFW v3.55 or OFW v3.55 to install this new CFW v4.30 from the E3 Team.
  • It is best if downgrading to follow the normal steps and dehashing like with Rogero just to be sure of no bricks.
  • E3 will be releasing an upgraded E3 Flasher ‘update.bin’ (firmware) to handle direct downgrading to CFW v4.30. (Beware: Their hardware required, just one of many strings disclosed)

With all the recent news of consoles bricking due to CFW 4.21, I would wait until this custom firmware is tested. Unless you have a hardware flasher handy. Ironic isn’t it.
