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 maybe could install it, i'm not sure i only tested it on 3.55 but it was based on a 4.10 official firmware with kiosk 4.10 dev_flash built with PS3MFW builder i'm not sure how it packs the pups if it signs them for 3.55 then it definitely won't work and would say corrupt data.

however if it does work then you will be stuck on this custom firmware in kiosk mode which will be ok as long as you didn't update to 4.11 or next update that gets released it would be best to wait for me to re-pack a new pup that would put your console back into retail mode. if you get me?

I don't think so since it says "intended for installation on PS3 3.55 Retail consoles" on the front page. But we'll have to wait and see what technodon says.

Download link is in the front page - here ( it is in case you missed it.

Is there any hope for me and all the other ppl that has 3.56+ fw without any chance of downgrade?

Can this run full PSN games installed from the "Install Package Files" menu? Because if it can it would be pretty cool.

Yeah, the keys geohot used to sign packages in 3.55 were revoked after 3.56 so thats why no homebrew installs/runs. until someone dumps new keys and release new signing tools. no homebrew is going to run, i doubt anyone will accomplish this though its sonys system they seem to have secured it..

Yeah, he says "Modified to allow installation of retail signed packages" so it should be able to install.
