So far we've seen confirmation of DTU Injection and CFW2OFW Converted Games working on OFW 4.82 as reported by users.” time at Sony because today, they released FW 4.85 for the Play Station 3 just a day after FW 3.72 was released for the PSVita.
However, it didn’t seem to patch anything and as per a comment by Joonie, the update comes with no changes to the kernel, VSH or isolated loaders.
Furthermore, the changelog provided by Sony only reads “This system software update improves system performance.” which makes one wonder why this FW update was even released.
As a result, all PS3 models on any FW are still hacked since OFW 4.85 can have a fully exploitable FW installed over it.
As things currently stand, Joonie and other scene members are recommending PS3 owners to wait a bit before updating to HFW 4.85.1.
