197w ago - 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

Just keep your regular ReBug, and unplug or turn off the lan. Or tell people to just not mess with your ps3.

If you had to change a tire on your car, would you take off the fender? If your an idiot i guess.

This is just about the most messed thing you could do to downloaders. Give them a "hint hint" so they think it is worth the time it takes to download. Why not give them a piece of toilet paper, and say, here's a special napkin, hint hint.

People would do better spending their time, picking their nose, or staring at the wall.

LOL Funny you should say that.. Only yesterday i found myself picking my nose, while staring at the wall, trying to figure out how to remove my fenders so i could change tires and drive to the shop to buy some special napkins.. But seriously can anyone answer what the(hint hint)other features are? are they even there? why can't anyone actually seem to list them?

I don't need a spoof anyways LOLmy jb ps3 isn't connectable to net.. what has this even got to do with QA Flag menu? also you can't play burnt bd disc games on ps3 at all.. but might be able to if your ps3 has been QA Flagged? correct?

Hi guys. I'm new to this forum. I heard a lot of it so joined it. I just got my PS3. It has MultiMan Installed, Firmware version is 3.55..
I am a noob in PS3 right now. I beg you, please tell me what this spoofing means and is there any way to go online using spoofs with original dvds?

this patch fixes the BSG issue, and installs privacy patch (DNS Error, hint hint) on the downside it eliminates DEX menu 1 & the spoof is only for 3.61 (which is now useless since 3.65's release) if you have a problem w/ it wait for the official update from Team REBUG.

Edit: nobody held a gun to your head and told you to d/l it.

Damn Sony. I want to play online, but I can't because then I lose the ability to have the hack thing which I barely use anyway.

Really? I know Sony fixed the chain of trust issues in 3.56 (LV1, and LV2 are gone basically), and they added new keys for eboot.bin files in 3.60 for games, but as far as I know of they didn't fix the signing issue with PUP files or modified firmware.

Maybe I should ask the question differently. What checks in the PS3 would prevent a simple modification the version to original firmware 3.55 from installing?

OK I have to ask some silly questions. Just go with me on this one. Does this spoof really allow you to say downgrade to 3.55 by updating to say a 3.90 firmware (which is really just 3.55 modified so that it thinks its 3.90)?

If so what is to prevent someone from doing the following?

1. Downgrade to a 3.55 firmware by making the PS3 think it's a 3.90 update.
2. Set the QA Flag to allow firmware downgrading
3. Upgrade to an official firmware 3.61/3.65 for PSN access, downgrading for CFW uses. I suppose you could burn BD-R's to use on OFW 3.61 if you didn't want to switch back and forth.

It still not CFW 3.61 but it's defiantly one step closer.

To answer from the first post: "it will only spoof the PS3 Firmware version number... it won't allow PSN access or running newer PlayStation 3 titles" so nah, all it does is prevent the PS3 Firmware from being updated (for example, if you have a friend over and they try to update it and so on).

As for getting newer games to work, only update patches (when released) or a new PS3 hack will help with them.
