PS3 Toolset (aka bgtoolset) has been updated by bguerville to support all PS3 firmware versions OFW/HFW/CEX/DEX/PEX from 4.75 to 4.91.

This software works directly on the PS3 Internet browser and offers a complete collection of tools to patch the flash memory of PS3 systems to allow Custom Firmware installation without having to downgrade to 3.55, among other features.

You can check it out at Use at your own risk, as always.

NOTE: The alternative self-hosted method using PS3Xploit Flash Writer by lmn7 will be updated soon for 4.91 too.

WARNING: Avoid the unofficial clones of bgtoolset. They are based on an obsolete and incomplete dump of the tool obtained without consent of the authors. These unofficial tools have a very high risk of cause permanent damage to your PS3 console.

    Hi Guys… thanks for the hard work… seems this method with dns to access bgtoolset don’t work anymore… not for me on my ps3… any solution please?

    For the moment the possible solutions are:
    1- Install HEN while you wait for bgtoolset come back
    2- There are other alternatives like using the incomplete clone sites or updating HEN flash writer, but they are not safe and have high risk of bricking your console.
    3- Using a hardware flasher.
