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

You should definitely do the Cinavia patch , Credit Tical for figuring out which files. It stops people getting an error message half way through watching a bluray rip saying its copyright protected content, also sound is cut and movie cant be watched because of this.

You should also warn anyone who installs these HFW's that they are at risk of a console ban if they connect to PSN, Don't think sony can't check the system if they want to.

i'm not saying they will ban people but its possible and people might not be aware of the small risk when they try this, flasher or not.

I may be wrong but here is my understanding of the pup signing for newer FW's problem, its not that we pack pups with 3.55 keys at all, don't forget that even a ps3 on FW 1.00 must be able to decrypt ANY pup, so they can NEVER change the keys for pup unpacking unless they say to us first, (example) "you must update to 4.20 before you update to 5.00", this is one of the reasons we can still install modified pups from 3.55 and always will be able to, they can't go back and patch the problem.

the reason we can't fool the 3.56+ updater is that in now more thorough checks are done on the signing and our (fake?) signing is no good, in the older firmwares updater Sony were so confident that the first layer of security wouldn't be broken (the keys) that the checks they implemented were only on certain parts of the file signing example: only checking file headers and not whole files.

I am not going to repost anything on the main page as it's there already, once he posts another link I will swap it out with the current one that is it.

I would message the boss to remove the links temporarily on the front page so people don't download and install it. When you've finished uploading the proper one it then can be added to the front page.

hen any idea how i would enable game updates? i tried swapping gameupdate_plugin.sprx and checked all the other game type files but there are the same size so i doubt swaping them will do anything. i uploaded the wrong version... fail. i'll up the proper one!

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.
