206w ago - Today an anonymous author has released an Easy Spoof TCL Mod 6.66 to 9.90 for use with PS3 MFW Builder and also a PS3 Advanced Mode Patch for PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware users on Rebug PS3 CFW v3.55.1 followed by a PS3 Firmware v3.66 Spoof Plug-In for MFW Builder via French site PS3-Addict.

Download: PS3 Easy Spoof TCL Mod 6.66 to 9.90 / PS3 Easy Spoof TCL Mod 6.66 to 9.90 (Fixed) / PS3 Advanced Mode Patch for Rebug CFW / PS3 Firmware v3.66 Spoof Plug-In for MFW Builder

Those using the PS3 Easy Spoof TCL Mod 6.66 to 9.90 should be aware that it will only spoof the PS3 Firmware version number, meaning while it will prevent the PS3 from updating it won't allow PSN access or running newer PlayStation 3 titles and the risk of not being able to downgrade or update your console again is always present when using such applications.

Shortly following, PS3 hacker Cyberskunk shared a fixed version (above) adding the following: The first version was buggy, and did not run correctly. Our thanks to unknown for quickly fixing the problem!

Easy Spoof version to apply into a new CFW based on OFW for PS3mfw builder.

  • Included spoof version; 3.15 to 3.65 and 6.66/9.90 if you need it.
  • Fixed: Sorry for the inconvenience, I forgot to edit another name from the command line, lol, ... now work!

Advanced Mode = 2 x Debug Menu 2, No Debug Menu 1, No NORMAL Mode (Forces you to use Recovery Mode to install any other OFW/CFW).

Finally, the PS3 Advanced Mode Patch enables a Debug menu similar to the QA Flag one for PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware users with features detailed below, to quote:

BSPatch to apply on Untouched Original CFW REBUG 3.55.1 which enables advanced mode

  • Debug Settings: MENU 2 (DEX)
  • Fixed black screens in game boot, including originals BD games from Official CFW Version
  • New user icons
  • HeavyRain theme installed
  • NO LV1 patch’s for OtherOS++ support because this cause Trophy errors
  • Spoof Version 3.61 from dev_blind package
  • (and more, hint hint)

Mehh... When or if it ever gets backup support for ps1 and ps2 games AND be able to boot them up flawlessly and play them, then maybe I'll get it. Until such time I will play the waiting game. Those "spoof" things are pointless. Because seriously who is dumb enough to accidently update their firmware?

Following up on his previous updates, today PlayStation 3 hacker RazorX has updated PS3Ultimate PS3 CFW to Spoofed version 3.72 with the changes detailed below.

To quote: Hey all RazorX here I've updated my PS3Ultimate CFW again for you i've tweeked a couple of things for example I've removed the Web site from the coldboot file so now it just reads PS3Ultimate.

I've also updated the category_game_tool2.xml and renamed the default theme because the name was bugging me and I changed the Web site on it but the main reason for this release is because I've updated the spoof on it now my CFW is spoofed to 3.72 to prevent you from accidently updating your console, also on another note I've found someone who is happy to make a PS3Ultimate app for me so keep a look out for that hopefully if what he said is true it should be done about Friday but we will see..

PS3Ultimate CFW Details:

  • Patched Lv1 Hypervisor
  • Patched Lv2 Kernel
  • Patched Package Installer
  • Patched Application Launcher
  • Added Homebrew Category (TV)
  • Added Retro Category (PSN)
  • Added Debug Category (Friend)
  • Added Package Manager (Friend)
  • Added Launch Game (Discless) (Game)
  • Cleaned Unwanted Icons From XMB
  • Replaced Coldboot
  • Replaced RCO Files

does this mean that we can now play 3.60+ games such as Infamous 2, Lego Pirates, etc... w/o having to have a patched eboot or do we still require the KEYS to play these ever after the spoof??

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

In regards to this thread topic, spoofing is referring to tricking the PS3 into thinking it's on a higher Firmware version than it really is... the purpose being to prevent it from being updated to a newer one and locking out the ability to JailBreak or run PS3 homebrew on it.

Currently spoofing cannot be used online to trick the PSN servers into thinking the PS3 is on a higher PlayStation 3 Firmware though.
