    From haxxxen: Just a small task (patch_game_plugin.zip linked above) to share.. it will remove the debug message "Quit Game: No Request Event" from DEX or REBUG firmwares (the info symbol won't be removed), still searching for fake save data owner message, but not very easy to find. It seems it is hardcoded somewhere else, but not in modules.

    I have found now that fake save data owner message by browsing vsh strings... I have packed both tasks into one, so you can choose both options at same time and it seperates rebug and dex firmware. it is still in old format though, sorry RedDot the info symbols will remain on both patches for manual patching:

    Finally, from haz367: lv2 fixed again. Note: at least 1 of the "updated" LV2-450 patterns (copied from rogero) is causing the GLOD, need to check it more!

    Anyhow... we have a winner! 450-basic patched - PS3MFW =
    • Install from any 4.xx = OK
    • Installs and boots fine...with basic patches all working

    The tasks however could use a little sorting, but all this is easy enough to fix.. here's the log just in case...

    Soo Many Firmwares ...

    So lets be real... So many new fw's get released everytime Sony has an update... sure you get the added capability but at the risk of a brick... which I never want to find when I can just keep getting 3.55 patches for games I actually want to play..

    Have and will always will be on KMEAW 3.55 until possibly a new FW comes out supporting PS2 iso execution (Leak)... or if it just gets ported onto Deanks project I might just stay indefinitely. I just have to ask whats the point when MFW programs exist and people just rip off a CFW generated from tools like these add a name and sites front page it.. ?

    Also from toolboy2012: Ok All, So I have NOT yet actually attempted to install/flash a CFW from my build, but I know you guys have been testing for quite some time, as you were mentioning the 'corruption' issue when trying to install over an existing 4.xx CFW. But I plan on doing it soon, now that hopefully we have the worst mess out of the way... (or at least I hope so!!)

    Here's what is all fixed up, and all checked into my PS3MFW repo (and the associated source repos as well)

    [Register or Login to view code]

    NOTE: PKGTOOL and SCETOOL both NOW USE the "PS3_KEYS" environment variable (just like the PS3MFW sets the 'PS3_KEYS' build variable), so make sure you set this env. variable in your windows 'environment variable setup', or if NOT, the keys search will then look in the "./data" path for the "keys, curves, vsh_curves" files...

    So you can look at my base.tcl to see how I'm calling the 'pkgtool', with the arguments (basically it was a drop-in where the old tools were, I didn't have to change any file paths/output paths, just add in the 'calling' parameters... I still have to add the "-help" option to the pkgtool with more info, I just haven't had a chance to add it yet!

    The "-key" option for "pkgtool" is now just OPTIONAL, you do NOT need to specify any key names anymore, as they are
    auto-loaded from the scetool 'keys' file. (although you can use this option to 'override' the auto search, and find
    the exact key you want to use)

    SO TWO TOTAL 'other' key types had to be put into the 'keys' file for the COS/PUP files, and for the SPKG output stuff, they are shown below for reference (especially if you want to just add to your own 'keys' file)

    I DID put my keys files back (for now) into my PS3MFW repo, just so you won't be fighting with key issues for now... eventually I'll take them back out, as I hate having that stuff in with my source... here is the two keys you need to add to the latest 'keys' file: (they are ALREADY in my keys file in my repo) (I've re-upped my keys files for now, so you all can take them if you don't already have them)

    This one for the PUP/COS stuff...

    [Register or Login to view code]

    and this one for SPKG creation:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    So let me know how it all goes, I hope things start working now, if not, at least we are much much closer! But I really feel the spkg hdr issues should be fixed...

    BTW, one thing I noticed, still need to add support for the "unspp/spp" into the base.tcl, to use SCETOOL, rather than the old spp keys, as scetool does have suppport for SPP files... so I'll work on that as well... (was going to add the SPP code into my pkgtool, but no need, as scetool already has it!)

    From RedDot-3ND7355: Is that spkg private key even good? Take a look at the spkg after using this one 00542D46E7B3DAAC8AEB81E533873AABD6D74BB710. BTW, Thanks for the huge update! Cheers!

    Use these on (3.55-)PKG

    This link needs to be corrected, guys. The Mirror Download Our MFW 1.0.0.rar (Mirror) (http://www.mediafire.com/download/7w...+MFW+1.0.0.rar) is outdated. Since the git is experiencing SQL Error or whatever the hell it really is.. USE THIS!


    I created this account just to show you guys this.

    That link has also been added to the main article... I generally keep them updated myself until major revisions surface, then I simply create a new article and start all over. Thanks for the heads-up B7U3 C50SS and +Rep!

    Hey Guys RedDot-3ND7355 here! Thanks for sharing this

    Just wanted to say that there is now an In app updater! So people who are using at least PS3MFW Builder 1.0.0 (Build 1.0.1+) can update using a simple click right below the quit button
