PS3 PUP / Dev_Flash File Spoofer v3 Tool is Now Available
I have done this PS3 PUP / Dev_Flash File Spoofer v3 Tool (basically is an script that use other tools) long time ago for easily spoof necessary files from a PUP file or your own files of dev_flash. This works on Cygwin and Ubuntu (not CMD windows)
extractor.exe - Extract vsh.self, index.dat and version.txt of PUP file
spoofer.exe - Spoof your flash files [vsh.self and version.txt] (put there in same folder with spoofer.exe)
spoofer_pup.exe - Extract and spoof automatically files of PUP (it must be in same folder with spoofer_pup.exe)
You must choose what version and image version you want to spoof in tools spoofer.exe and spoofer_pup.exe, for example, if i want to spoof to 6.40 i put this on Cygwin console (you can choose any image version):
When it finish you have your spoofed files in Spoofed folder. Version must have same numbers of characters, otherwise it give you error on PS3. If you do something wrong PS3 will boot up Red Screen, if that occurs re-install CFW from Recovery Menu.
File index.dat is really not necessary to extract, it creates a new one with spoofed version.txt (spoofed tools does it auto).
I hope this helps anyone. If you see any error or bug please contact me.
With tool spoofer_pup.exe is HIGHLY recommended use PUP file of your CFW you have installed on your PS3, it don't spoof PUP file, it extracts the files [vsh.self and version.txt], spoof them and save in Spoofed folder, then copy to your dev_flash with Dev_blind.
Don't confuse with that friends, it spoof files not the entire PUP
Nice! Love these little tools, for people like me learning programming it helps to understand certain aspects of how the memory works in these newer consoles. Keep up the good work! (not sure if this double posted sorry if it did).
You know what would be good, if the CFW scene adopted Sony's PhyreEngine (3D engine, which i have along with 3.70 SDK and Educational Dev Account) Framework. That would enable some pretty cool games to be made, but im guesing that would require allot of revamping of the code as to not get sued and what not.
