January 1, 2013 // 9:46 pm - Following up on the 4.11, 4.10 and 4.00 PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware modification updates, today Szalay has shared a guide on bringing Install Package Files folder back to VSH on Rogero 4.30 CFW.

Download: add_install_package.txt / Rogero 4.30-2.03 IPF (Install Package Folder) XMB Fix

To quote: Maybe it's just my opinion, but the Install Package via multiman and other Install PKG application are not the greatest options.

Here's how to TRULY add back Install Package from the VSH directly like before in v3.41/v3.55 for CFW build's v4.30.

Happy New Year! Enjoy!!

Installation Instructions:

The download contains two installation methods; one manual, and one automatic. Instructions below:

Manual Installation

  • Enable /dev_blind write access to /dev_flash
  • And then COPY/FTP those files to the /dev_blind/vsh/module/blah*.sprx , etc, etc
  • Reset your console

Automatic Installation

  • Enable /dev_blind write access to /dev_flash
  • Just double click it in multiMAN
  • Then reset your console


How Does this Work?

"The reason install package was blocked in later than 3.6x firmwares, was because from 3.6x and higher, they started checking for valid tokens, the new ecdsa signed tokens and then flags to enable Install Package to work. The patch done just fakes the SPRX's into thinking the token flag is set."

Is This Safe?

"As far as being dangerous, the creator of CFW should be able to decrypt said SPRX files and replace the patches and recrypt/resign files properly and package inside the PS3UPDAT.PUP for all future builds"

Finally, below is a brief Rogero 4.30 CFW 'Install Package Files' addition video tutorial by scofield:

change the target_id of the ps3, that will literally change the PS3's region coding, in reality, PS3 bluray player is regionless and it reads any discs regardless what region the BD/DVD movie is, the only one stopping it is the software.

Also you can just use multiman to temporarily change the blu-ray video region into something what you like until you restart your ps3, this will let you play bd movies without any further complicated software modifications.

Following up on his Rogero CEX 4.46 v1.01 PS3 CFW release, today PlayStation 3 developer Rogero (with help from Swizzy) has made available PS3 Flash Tool v1.00 with details below.

Download: PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #2) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #3) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #4) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #5) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #6) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #7) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #8) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #9)

To quote: This Tool is Swizzy's "PS3 Dump checker" merged with "PS3 Flash Auto Patcher" .

This is an "All in One" Tool now, it will do both the verification of vital Data and the Patching of the Nor/Nand Image.

It will replace Ps3 Flash Auto Patcher v4.46a from now on.

Credits to my friend "Swizzy" the well known coder for his many Tools in the Xbox360 scene

How to use:

Drag and Drop any PS3 Nor or Interleaved NAND Dump onto the "PS3_Flash_Tool_v1.0.exe" it will verify the dump, detects its type and patch it accordingly with Rogero CEX_4.46 patches, all this in less then 2 seconds.

v1.00 (initial release)

  • Merged Swizzy's PS3DumpChecker Tool with Rogero's AutoPatcher v4.46
  • Both NOR and Nand (Interleaved) Flash Dumps are supported.
  • Compatible with Win7/8 and windows XP.
  • Easy operation, just Drag and Drop the Dump over "PS3_Flash_Tool_v1.0.exe".
  • The dump will be checked to verify all sections are valid.
  • When a Dump is checked and found Valid it will Proceed to Patch it.
  • It has 2 operation Modes: Auto and Normal (can be toggled with included Registry Files). Auto Mode: will check the dump and if found valid it will patch it automatically (all in less then 2 seconds). Normal Mode: will check the dump and if found valid it will ask if you want to patch it.
