Remember Condor Updater? It Gets Its Update For 4.xx Firmwares

November 24, 2012

For those who remember Condorstrike’s Condor Updater homebrew application for custom firmware PS3s, you’ll be glad to know that it has been updated to support the array of 4.xx custom firmwares available. For those who don’t know what this does, it’s a nifty tool that allows you to reboot into a “pseudo-recovery” mode so you won’t have to turn off the PS3 and do the button sequence to go into recovery mode. Here’s what Condorstrike had to say about the update:

Hi guys, I took a short break from Pointman, my upcoming PS3 Homebrew video game, and decided to investigate what Sony did to prevent Condor Updater from working on 4.xx. After some coffee and hair pulling it seems the culprit was one of my protection checks implemented in v2.0, so I re-wrote it and added a nice PIC1.PNG and ICON0.PNG, and now it works on 4.xx CFWs.


  • Re-wrote code to make app compatible with 4.xx CFWs.
  • Cleaned Code and removed unneeded LV2 patch protections.
  • Replaced loading method.
  • Replaced ICON0.PNG and PIC1.PNG.

Hope you Enjoy it… CAW!

PS: I don’t have a NAND-PS3 to test with, so I don’t know if It’ll work on those models.

You can grab the updated application from below.
