October 6, 2012 // 11:04 pm - Shortly following his PS3Ultimate PS3 TV Application v1.10 update, PlayStation 3 homebrew developer RazorX has also released a PS3 RCO Free Package Manager and Web Browser Plus PKG file with details below.

Download: PS3 RCO Free Package Manager / PS3 Web Browser Plus PKG File

To quote: Hey guys I've created this simple rco free package manager installable zip file for you, this can easily be incorporated into your cfw with very little impact and is completely safe and for those of you who want to install a package manager that won't need you to replace any rco files, this is great if you created your own cfw and installing a standard package manager will change your XMB names or layout.

This also will allow you to install packages from:

Along with this I am releasing a Web browser which utilizes multimans browser which means you can launch the Web browser from the network category and download pkg files directly to your hdd and with this package manager install them also the package manager it's self will show up in the network category so it's out of the way.

This won't damage or replace any other package manager you have installed.

For those of you who don't know how to install this all you do is extract the zip and put the file on your usb stick then launch multiman, goto mmOS then browse your usb stick and double click on the file and it will ask you if you want to install it choose yes and you're done.

Hope you enjoy this please let me know what you think..


Q: What does RCO-Free mean?

A: It has exellent compatibility because it will work on just about anything also imagine you made your own cfw with altered rco files and set it up perfect just the way you like it then you install a package manager and because it replaced a rco that you had altered you hard work is gone.

Also it reduces the size to next to nothing and it makes it 100% easier to incorporate it into your own cfw if you choose to make one or already have one and since the xml files hardly change you could probably get away with installing it on any update whether you install it with the installable zip or do it manually and it has the multiman downloads folder added to it.

So if you download a pkg through multiman it will show up on the package manager and it also has the directory for the web browser app I provided you can see the full list in the spoiler I'm all about making things simple why make the same app complicated if you can make it simple also if you don't know what your doing its best not to install something that could potentially damage your PS3 with this you don't need to worry.

PS3 RCO Free Package Manager and Web Browser Plus PKG Arrive

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.

Download: PS3Ultimate White Edition 3.72 Spoofed / PS3Ultimate Black Edition 3.72 Spoofed / PS3Ultimate White Edition Unspoofed / PS3Ultimate Black Edition Unspoofed / PS3Ultimate White Edition 3.70 Spoofed / PS3Ultimate Black Edition 3.70 Spoofed

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
  • Replaced XML Files
  • Patched All self/sprx Files To Secure Privacy
  • Changed Cinavia DRM Effected Files
  • Changed Default "Air Paint" Theme

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.
