196w 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

Ok, this is what I did, I first installed it via regular xmb and everything looked fine. I was trying to look up the advanced mode using dex to get to menu 2, but every time I tried it would not change the menu in the debug settings.

So what I thought about doing next was, reinstalling it again but this time via recovery, before I flashed it it did prompt me that it was 3.60, but in my freaking head I thought it was just due to the spoof that rebug has in it plus, I KNEW it wasn't 3.60 that it was the so called advanced pup I had just created. I installed it and 3.60 all up in my grill.

No man, this isn't a spoof. It's 3.60 official! Multiman nor anything else runs anymore. The icons changed back to original and the cold boot is back to the way it was originally!

REBUG has always been spoofed with 3.60 in debug mode, I don't know what you got but the patch I got spoofed to 3.61.

well yeah, there aren't actually any firmware updates or downgrades. Every version of the firmware replaces the one that was on the PS3 before it, the only thing that stops you normally downgrading is a software check on the version numbers but during "downgrading" that check doesn't take place so you can pretty much install any firmware you like, not just lower, provided your hardware supports it.

Don't know about the other options though, my PS3's are all on Kmeaw and there's no real reason for me to change that yet so don't want to start flashing stuff randomly.

yes you can play all the newest games until firmware 9.99 with this.. but barry do you think it would be able to "downgrade" to a higher actual fw with the spoofer.. will be interesting to see what actually happens.. reminds me of y2k bug.. LOL

oh and you cant actually play 3.60 games just with the spoofer obviously.. read the "news post" it tells you that there.. LOL
