    Fix TAR v3 PS3 Homebrew App for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware

    Sorry for being quiet the last few days guys, but I'm still working on things for AC1D CFW and also found some changes to newer PUPs so I have modded the source of KaKaRoToKS Fix_TAR to reflect this in the Fix TAR v3 PS3 homebrew application for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware.

    Download: Fix TAR v3 PS3 Homebrew App for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware / Cygwin1.dll (Required) / Fix TAR v3 (Fixed) PS3 Homebrew App for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware / Fix TAR v3.2 PS3 Homebrew App for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware / Fix TAR v3 (Fixed v2) PS3 Homebrew App for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware by nathanr3269 / fix_tar.rar (for 4.XX) by Dr. L Ron Bumquist

    Also what Mathieulh has stated about the 3.55 / 3.56 tar owner id, owner and group is simply BS. It hasn't changed up to 3.72. Debug tar's have diff info but on 4.0 Retail/Debug it's the same.

    There for i fixed the original source of fix_tar (owner id from 0001752 back to 0000644), modded a fix_tar_debug and modded a new fix_tar_v3 which also works on retail and debug fw.

    Again:
    • fix_tar = retail fw up to 3.72
    • fix_tar_debug = debug fw up to 3.72(?)
    • fix_tar_v3 = retail and debug fw 4.0

    Have Fun -cfwprpht-

    From Dr. L Ron Bumquist: This was released by cfwprophet back in 2012.

    I found these files on my computer and they work with puad gui 1.5, you just need to rename the one you want to use to "fix_tar_PUAD.exe" and of course put it in the \PUAD GUI\bin\ps3tools folder.

    No more psp issues. In the rar (linked above) there is:
    • fix_tar = retail fw up to 3.72
    • fix_tar_debug = debug fw up to 3.72(?)
    • fix_tar_v3 = retail and debug fw 4.0

    Nice work, cfwprophet, and +rep for you!

    fix_tar_v3 is just what I was working lastly, thanks for the tool, I'll avoid to work on it and I'll try it just tonight.

    Remember all guys here fix_tar is a tool developed by KaKaRoTo and it useful only for the developers, not for ps3 gamers.

    I tkink this is devs only app but how a hombrew app for 4.00 retail and debug, nice work , how you sign this homebrew app for new FW? can you release the keys?

    This is interesting to me: "Also what Mathieulh has stated about the 3.55 / 3.56 tar owner id, owner and group is simply BS. It hasn't changed up to 3.72. Debug tar's have diff info but on 4.0 Retail/Debug it's the same"

    Can you explain what math said and what BS? he is a rat.

    I'll try to be aware of such statements in future. Just got a message from Ezio about a bug which i could track down as mine one

    Anyway i fix'd that and will do some more test's then i'll post the fix version

    No, absolutely no, since it is an .exe for windows to work on creating and fixing of the firmware. It's an application for the developers, so it isn't used by normal user, and few people usually use it, so it's very difficult someone notices a bug and reports it on a forum.

    Maybe the permissions weren't included into source code so the application writes them at wrong offset. I would like to invite other developers here on forum as Evilnat aka nathanr3269 to work on it if it's the case.

    Take consider this version has only a little bug, the previous version (tar_fix_v2 by TEAMSOS) is completely lopsided and doesn't work as it promised because it doesn't fix the values as it should do (the values assigned are incorrect). I hope cfwprophet fixes as soon as he can, since he is already busy with his tests and his hardware flasher on own ps3.

    As i see, the data for fix_tar have changed too much on FW 4.00 Retail

    In PUP file 3.55, the data are all the same (PKG/TAR, update_files.tar, etc...):

    3.55 PUP
    =======

    Owner ID = 0001752
    Group ID = 0001274
    Owner = pup_tool
    Group = psnes
    Ustar = ustar
    But in a PUP file 4.00 is different, data of update_files.tar and PKG/TAR files of dev_flash are not the same like 3.55 PUP:

    4.00 PUP
    ========

    update_files.tar
    ---------------
    Owner ID = 0001762
    Group ID = 0001274
    Owner = make_pup2
    Group = psnes
    Ustar = ustar


    PKG/TAR dev_flash
    ------------------
    Owner ID = 0000764
    Group ID = 0000764
    Owner = tetsu
    Group = tetsu
    Ustar = ustar
    As you can see we have to use two fix_tar files for each one, i made and fixed these tools, fix_tar_pkg-tar (for PKG/TAR files of dev_flash) and fix_tar_update (for update_files.tar)

    Download: Fix TAR v3 Fixed




    I think all is correct what i made, i check data for long time

    I hope it helped cfwprophet

    Regards
