August 18, 2011 // 1:21 pm - Today PlayStation 3 developer RazorX has released a PS3 3.70 Spoof TCL Mod and Tasks for PS3MFW Builder to allow Modified Firmware users to change PS3 XML and RCO files alongside some ready-made PS3Ultimate CFW versions below and a PS3Ultimate Store Channel release from PsDev.

Download: PS3 3.70 Spoof TCL Mod / Change PS3 XML Files / Change PS3 RCO Files / PS3Ultimate 3.55 CFW (Unspoofed) / PS3Ultimate 3.55 CFW (3.66 Spoofed) / PS3Ultimate 3.55 CFW (3.70 Spoofed) / Altered PKG Files / PS3 Ultimate 1 / PS3 Ultimate 2 (Black) / XMB_Plugin_Normal (Black & White) / PS3Ultimate Store Channel / PS3Ultimate CFW Coldboot.raf (Updated Bugfix)

When using the spoof, your PS3 will display the following prompt: "The latest version of the system software is already installed. There is no need to update."

To quote: This does not mean that you can use this to sign into to PSN. All that this basically does is allow you to not have to worry about your console being accidentally updated. NO PSN! I've now got a 3.70 spoof tcl that is 3.70 51968 001:CEX-ww

RazorX also releases two other tasks he created for use with PS3MFW Builder, Change XML Files, and Change RCO Files.

Currently, there are three different versions: 3.66 Spoofed, 3.70 Spoofed, and 3.55 Unspoofed. NOTE: With the versions that come SPOOFED, the only way to revert back to another FW is though Recovery Menu.

This is a 3.55 CFW Ive just finished creating with PS3MFW Builder. It is setup in a way I think everyone will like, here is some of the options I set:

  • Patched Lv1 Hypervisor
  • Patched Lv2 Kernel
  • Patched Package Installer
  • Patched all self/sprx to secure privacy
  • Patched application launcher
  • Added homebrew category
  • Added Start Game (Disc-less) to game category (/app_home/PS3_GAME/)
  • Cleaned unwanted items from XMB
  • Patched translations
  • Replaced coldboot
  • Replaced some RCO files
  • Replaced some XML files
  • Changed cinavia DRM affected files
  • Changed default theme
  • Spoofed to 3.70 (3.70 51968 001:CEX-ww)

After you install this CFW, go straight into theme settings and apply the default theme. I would also like to say I'd be very happy to receive any help. That is going to really improve this CFW further. I have been trying to change the icons on the ingame XMB and the main XMB, to set it up were I don't need the theme.

But, I have had little success so far, so any help would be appreciated. I have put the "Start Game (Disc-less)" in games, and the "Install Packages" in debug. In the future I'd very much like to also have the debug settings in there, so if anyone can do this let me know..

To do this firmware I had to create my own tcl files, so I have included them too. Ive also included some altered pkg files for you to try, and by altered I mean the categories changed, and images slightly altered. So enjoy...

Updates: This cfw has been updated with a 3.70 spoof and i have just installed it and it does now say version 3.70 so if you have installed the previous cfw with the 3.66 spoof just install this straight over the top of it from the recovery menu..

For all you who want unspoofed versions here you go i've also added a spoof_version.tcl for 3.70.

I've just created a larger theme for my cfw it now has 16 different backgrounds in HD and SD i hope you all like it

And for all of you who want something different and know what to do with rco files i've just created a black theme which i think is fantastic i created every icon but you cant change the psn icon with a theme as far as i know so ive included the rco file to change it, ive also included the normal one to switch back its only 1 rco so its not difficult and let me know what you think so i can use that in a future release thanks..

Instructions aka 1-2-3 UFW (PS3 Ultimate 3.55 CFW):

1. Format USB device FAT32
2. Place PS3UPDAT.PUP in x:/PS3/UPDATE
3. Install via XMB

NOTE: If you are not on OFW 3.55, please download and install that first, the same way you would install NFW. You can find OFW 3.55 here.

PS3Ultimate Store:

How to add the channel:

  • Place the folder called xil in this directory "/Dev_hdd0/tmp/explore
  • The channel will end up in the Tv Section

Sorry if I making a dummy question. Do I replace the original files from /dev_flash/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/category_tv.xml or just add the file category_tv.xml in /dev_hdd0/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/

try to replace from /dev_flash the system won't let me even erase the existing one.

Adding in /dev_hdd0 still see TV category empty.

Can some one point me to the right direction?

Yea, I have ABC IView, Plus7 and SBS On Demand and that VidZone on my OFW PS3.

On the CFW355 I have ABC, Plus7 and PlayTV. I also moved Showtime there but I would like SBS on demand but cant work out how to get it there.

I now have Crackle. Which reminds me its time to crackle. LOL

Oh, I could only get Crackle working as the others said they can't be played to international users. And the others were in foreign languages so I couldn't understand what was going on. Probably telling me I cant play then as I'm an international user. There is Plus7 but I already have that.

I edited the files and now I only have crackle as that's the only channel I wanted anyway.

Is there a way to add the official channels? On OFW 4.21 there are more channels than 3.55 has and I can't seem to get the new ones installed to CFW.

I remember a similar app named PS3 Channels Creator. You would have to make your own XML file and it would appear in the "TV" tab in the XMB. You would have to enter the website though and it would just take you there on the PS3. Good to see RazorX still contributing to the scene.
