August 18, 2011 // 11:21 am - 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

Works ok, you have to use the attached TV.xml file as I already have the TV category and it didn't show up using just the PKG.

Hope he updates it and adds more channels to international users as some of them don't work here in Aus.

  • then install the PKG file and your done
  • simply go to your TV or Video category on your PS3 and you now have some TV channels

  • Added "standard theme" so icons can be restored to normal

HFS Info:

HFS aka HFS HTTP File Server will give you the ability to copy files to your PS3 and stream videos directly to your ps3 it also can be used for much more than this but this is what i use it for also with the modification. i have made you will be able to upload videos you have on your PS3 to your PC.

i have set everything up for you it should be a simple matter of loading. HFS up and adding your files to it you will also need to create a Upload folder on your pc and drag it over onto HFS and right click the folder and set it up as a upload directory so you can upload pictures and with my mod videos from your PS3 to your PC.

i've set the HFS website up as localhost if this doesnt work change localhost to your pc's ip address, for example change localhost to and everything should work perfectly to make it easier for you to change the ip address ive set it up so it reads the website address from the root of your ps3's hdd so please put the hfs.xml in the root of your ps3's hdd so basically it should be put in /dev_hdd0/ this will allow you to easily remember were it is if you need to change the ip address.

Here are the files:

The PS3Ultimate TV Video Bypass contains the which you install using multiman this will allow you to upload your videos from your PS3 to your PC.

v1.09 Changelog:

With 1.09 I've updated most of the app from the themes to the movie links and movies. I've also added a links section to tidy the main section up. Ive also added new content including ps3 xil for those who want to use it to add custom channels and tidy up the ps3's main XMB or if your CFW has removed them, then they should be available again. I've also changed the update to a direct link but most of my time and effort has been focused on the movies section.

I decided to release this update a little sooner than I was going to, so remember I'm working on this everyday, so keep checking for updates but remember it can be a slow process and I'm working alone. So please be patient and if you have just installed this update remember to also download and install a theme so everything is up to date.

Below are some updated PS3MFW Builder plugins for PS3 Firmware 3.73 spoofing for those interested. Keep in mind they will not allow you to play higher PlayStation 3 Firmware games, only stop your PS3 from being accidently updated.

Download: PS3 666-990 Spoof Version

To quote via

I offer you my version of tlc file to add a plugin PS3MFW builder software to allow you to integrate the spoof v3.73 in your future personal development of CFW. This version is a mod that I made from the file tlc 666_9.90_version_spoofer


  • Download and unzip the archive => 666-990-spoof-version_Mod_by_ARCH.rar
  • Copy the file "tlc" in the following directory: PS3MFW / tasks /


Here is another update, courtesy of resident PS3MFW Builder user bitsbubba:

Download: PS3 Spoof_Version TLC Task (1.02-3.73) for PS3MFW Builder / PS3 Spoof_Version TLC Task (1.02-3.73) for PS3MFW Builder (Fixed) / (August 11, 2012 GIT Build) / spoof_version_simple.rar (Rebug TCL additional tasks) / spoof_version_more.rar (v1.02-4.25)

A few more from abuser via:

Here is a Rebug 3.55.2 aio patch for dospiedras lv1checks, reactpsn and official update pkg. this one can be used directly after a hardware downgrade just like rogero's v2 kmeaw.

Download: Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update / Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update (Updated) / Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update (Fixed)

The updated version includes: the update pkg files, the dospiedra v2 lv1 checks to flash directly after hardware downgrade
with a flasher, reActPSN patches and privacy patches. i'm still having problems with tv category patch multilingual, but it will follow.

If you patch rebug with ps3mfw directly with reactpsn patches, you will have no problems with the different modes REBUG/RETAIL or the menus DEBUG/RETAIL at all. dunno about kmeaw, but it should also apply as i assume the rsod is because of a hashcheck or sth on vsh.self


  • the dospiedra lv1 checks are totally safe, as i've already tested this on rebug after e3flasher downgrade!!!
  • privacy patch is disabled by default, cause i had problems with some psn games
  • you can update all files from pkg, even BDEMU1 to BDEMU2. if not just leave spaces empty
  • if no firmware is selected for reactpsn, the patches won't be applied

I used the change dev flash file for bdemu, so you can delete it and update it with bdemu2 and the 1.6.pkg.

More updates from abuser:

Download: Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update PKG / Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update PKG (Revised) / Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update PKG (Latest)

I have updated my REBUG-only task to the fullest now. It is now able to patch the released original pups 3.41.3 and 3.55.2 automatically, without replacing files.

This means you now have the choice to select the REBUG-Mode spoofed firmware yourself. 5.55 included and this makes future spoofer updates obsolete. you now only need the selectors from update pkg! i have included 3.41 REBUG lv1 patches and have seperated them from 3.55 lv1 check patches thx to


  • you can replace the old selectors with new ones, and even bdemu1 with bdemu2 (leave empty for no replace)
  • privacy patch fully automated, one single option to select (leaving because of psn games)
  • lv1 check patches for 3.41 and 3.55 REBUG for flasher downgrade
  • REBUG-Mode spoof-firmware selection: select the spoofed firmware version yourself
  • i have now included Team REBUG's implementation of reActPSN patches for 3.41 and 3.55 (cleaner)
  • make from scratch your latest up to date rebug pups
  • still only tv category to rebug, i'm sorry

NOTE: use only original REBUG_3.41.3_PS3UPDAT.PUP and REBUG_3.55.2_PS3UPDAT.PUP trying it with true blue edition is on your own risk, as i cannot test it. spoofer and lv1 patches do not work.

Download: Rebug 3.55.2 AIO Patch Update PKG (01.20.2012)

So after this strange "ARCH-Release" I thought to improve my task and include now the Homebrew category option with a LP file and make usage of danyL's language pack option, so it works on all system languages. just put the Homebrew.LP file to the pkgs or any other folder and select the path in ps3mfw builder...

Updated overview:

  • you can replace the old selectors with new ones, and even bdemu1 with bdemu2 (leave empty for no replace)
  • privacy patch fully automated, one single option to select (leaving because of psn games)
  • lv1 check patches only for 3.55 REBUG for flasher downgrade (afterall 3.41 patches are useless)
  • REBUG-Mode spoof-firmware selection: select the spoofed firmware version yourself
  • now included Team REBUG's implementation of reActPSN patches for 3.41 and 3.55 (cleaner)
  • make from scratch your latest up to date rebug pups from original releases
  • NOW added on ALL system languages the new category called "Homebrew"

Finally, a TCL to Add ReActPSN Support on DEX 3.55 Task by haxxxen is now available as well!
