Sponsored Links
175w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer DanyL has released an update to PS3MFW Builder bringing it to version 0.2.1 for PS3 homebrew users with some additional revisions and corresponding changes outlined below.

Download: PS3MFW Builder v0.2.1 PS3 Homebrew App / Italian Translation XML by Martix97 / Spanish Translation XML by rubio0075 / Arabic Translation XML by silent_4 / Multi-lang Translation XML, French Translation XML, Turkish Translation XML and Multi-lang Translation XML v2 by EussNL (with the help of Atilla, Razkar and Ibocan) / Spoof_Version_3.73.tcl and Change_Cinavia_Files.tcl by propered / PS3MFW Builder v0.2.1 PS3 Homebrew App (With Spoof / Translations) by bitsbubba / PS3MFW Builder PS3 Homebrew App (With New PS3 Keys) / patched loaders.zip by zecoxao / CORE_OS_446.rar by Agrippa90 / PS3 4.46 CFW (Untested: Flasher Users Required to Test) by Habib / GIT (DanyL) / GIT (EussNL) / PS3 MFW Updates

To quote: I start developing PS3MFW Builder 0.2.1 a few mouths ago, and since then it's just laying around my computer. It's fully working, only one function should rewritten.



  • Choose language.
  • Select Temp folder.
  • Select PS3_KEYS folder.
  • Save/Default all the settings, including selected/unselected tasks, original/modified firmware paths, theme and so on.
  • For developers: you can restart PS3MFW Builder by pressing .


I added the option to translate PS3MFW Builder to any language, including RTL, unique symbols and so on.. Thanks to eussNL for creating most of the translations.

You can also easily create your own translation, all the text it stored in an .xml file.


  • Added the option to select multiple files using "files" option type.
  • Added the option to select directory using "directory" option type.

Developers: The only thing should be rewritten is the "save_settings" function. The best way is to add a function in xml.tcl which will replace the text in specific node.

Finally, from zecoxao: I have here (linked above) with me a version of mfw builder based of cfwprpht's mfw builder v3. it works, on the aspect that the auto gen tool properly generates both AC1D and Rogero 4.30 CFWs and on the aspect that the other tasks also work, but not only for 4.30. they also work for 4.46 unfortunately i can't test the pups because i don't have a flasher. if any of you wishes to give it a shot, then please take your chance.

PS: I removed that sha1 thing, it was driving me crazy
PPS: Some lv2 related tasks don't work on 4.46 but work on 4.30 with the auto gen task

Just a warning. those might not actually be the correct "fake private keys"

Here (linked above) are the patched loaders in decrypted format for 4.46. just followed Rancido's instructions:

From Rancid-o: You have to extract manually the loaders from the LV0, decrypt them, patch the ecdsa check, encrypt the ldrs and reinsert them in LV0. Patch finded in Rebug 4.41:

Does the version you're using have the settings (languages) options? If so you need to click on settings and choose the ps3keys location

Not sure if the MAC version has been kept up with the Win32 one offhand as I don't follow OSX stuff myself, however, here is a link to the v0.1 MAC version I reuploaded for the moment:

I merged this into our ongoing thread for discussion, some versions and the GITs are posted in the main article if it helps as well.

I need help with making my own firmware on PS3MFW V0.2.1. I keep getting this error

FATAL ERROR: Could not unpkg file dev_flash_000.tar.aa.2010_11_27_051337: child process exited abnormally

From what I read it says i do not have the keys installed but I have put them in the extracted folder on my desktop and in ps3keys folder in C:user\mycomputer\ps3keys and Im still getting error. This rar file did not come with an Activetcl app do you still need it for this version of PS3MFW.

If anyone has a complete version of this with all files needed please upload or give me some help to solve the problem i'm having. I ran PS3MFW V1 and had no problems but I need the option to allow update with broken blu ray drive because mine is broken and I need to remarry it and I can not do it running Kmeaw 3.55

Yeah Sony did that on purpose, I think from 3.60+ (maybe 3.56+ but I haven't tested 3.56) Sony removed the ability to handle "type:x-xmb/xmlpackagefolder" from the CEX explore_plugin.sprx. That's why you can't put install package files in the category_game.xml and have it work on 3.60+ using only retail sprx files.

no, its for 3.55 and people with downgrade capabilities

i don't think this possible anymore, dev_flash/vsh/module/explore_plugin.sprx is the file that unlocks the xmb restrictions but if i swap it with the one from 4.10 OFW it stops my install packages working
