February 18, 2012 // 4:05 am - Here is my first PS3 4.10 CFW (Custom Firmware) / MFW (Modified Firmware) which includes the Install Package Files option in the PlayStation 3 XMB for those interested.

Download: PS3 4.10 CFW / MFW with Install Package Files by TechnoDon ( Warning: Read Notes below before installing!)

For those curious, this PS3 CFW / MFW is a modified 4.10 Kiosk / Shop Firmware via PS3MFW Builder intended for installation on PS3 3.55 Retail consoles.


1. Custom Coldboot
2. Kiosk/Shop XMB restrictions have been removed so PlayStation Home/PlayStation Store work fine.
3. Modified to allow installation of retail signed packages

Notes: DO NOT install this unless you have an E3 flasher or Progskeet type device to downgrade your PS3 to 3.55. Unfortunately 3.55 signed PS3 homebrew does not install/run. Also be aware it doesn't load any PlayStation 3 game backups so you will need to have the game disc to play them.

To Unlock the XMB: Hold L1+R1+Select+Square simultaneously. When the security settings icon is selected. It will ask for you to input a code (four digit code). Enter 2464.


PS: PS3Hen if you would like to add XMB Manager that would be great

i've not tested it on higer firmware than 3.55 but its been built with MFW Builder so i don't think that you can

i've been looking into Demonhades 3.56 firmware and i noticed that my console light was yellow instead of green, so in my efforts to change this i noticed that 3.55 sprx files work on the firmware, so i copied the whole dev_flash from 3.55 over the top of his firmware and to my supprise it worked.

my console now says that its on 3.55 which must be spoofed cause the index.dat & version.txt files were from 3.55 and if i hold the power button and go into system recover mode it still says that the console required 3.56 firmware or higher. any thoughts on this?

Yep, they are actually the same... promoted posts (to the news section) are pulled from the flag set on them, so in order to update the main page article the user's post (in this case, the first post of the thread) is what gets edited. Welcome to CJPC Portal Integration 101.

I didn't mean the front page as in the news section, I meant the first page of the thread. So people don't download and install it and then realize it doesn't have anything as stated by technodon.

I guess it doesn't matter anymore anyway.

going to take a closer look at demonhades 3.56 although i think that he just patched it with files from 3.55 so i don't think the same method will work for 3.60+ because of the firmware differences.. but maybe it will lead somewhere.

hen, i uploaded the wrong version that was a base version which had no custom new features message, no modified coldboot, the XMB restrictions were not removed also there wasn't the game category install package modifications so maybe that's why your XMB mods didn't work.. i'm uploading the proper one now.
No I don't know at the moment which sprx handles game updates.

I'll patch the proper version now.

Well this sucks. Picked a bad time to go and see the in-laws. I think that I will have to test this out when I get back.
