There's been a lot of excitement over the past week, with both Nintendo and Sony putting out system firmware updates on the same day. Now today, we're putting out a Riivolution update ourselves!
Nintendo's update was a maintenance update - not much changed at all - but Riivolution 1.03 was inadvertently affected. Today Riivolution 1.04
has been released and is working on "4.3v2" again. This time it's been released as a boot.elf, so it will launch from the Homebrew Channel, Bannerbomb, Smash Stack, or Indiana Pwns directly. We've also included a new savefile redirection feature that allows you to store your saves directly on SD, USB, or even Wi-Fi. It's a great way to keep your normal save untouched when trying out a full game hack!
Sony's push for their update was obvious, as they state that it "includes additional security features." Specifically, it was put out to stop PSGroove
and other similar devices. Progress on PlayStation 3 hacking has been tremendous, and things are improving each day. We're currently at work on "R3volution" for the PS3, so resist the urge to go on PSN and hold off on updating to 3.42 if you want to have a chance to try out custom games.Sep 19 Update: The original 1.04 Riivolution release contained a bug which prevented the channel from installing properly. This has been fixed now, so if you're seeing error -2 when installing the channel make sure to download it again.
