August 11, 2012 // 8:59 pm - Following up on his 4.21 Spoofer updates and 3.55 DEX Downgrader CFW, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer Rogero has released a proof-of-concept (PoC) dubbed Rogero PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) v3.5 which includes the PS3 3.56 / 3.60 keys.

Download: Rogero PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) v3.5 (PoC)

Changelog v3.5:

1- Added the 3.56 and 3.60 appldr/NPDRM key sets.
2- Patched many version checks and extended keys table index to activate the usage of newly added keys.
3- Games with Eboots version 3.56 are now working without the need for any patch, the CFW can decrypt the Eboot on the fly.
4- Games with Eboots version 3.60 are still giving an error on load due to some additional 3.60 checks that are being worked on. ("EAUTHFAIL | 0x80010017 | Program authentication fail (Error starting BluRay game)" which may need to be addressed outside appldr)

Important Note: This CFW is released only as a Proof of Concept for adding newer keys to 3.55 CFW. The 3.60 keys are already added to this CFW but some additional patching is needed on some loaders to bring the 3.60 functionality to the CFW.

Special Thanks to eussNL for his assisstance and help with the specific patches and tasks used to build and test the CFW. Special Thanks to glu0n for his awesome reversing/patching skills on the loaders.

Aw that sucks. Maybe I should think of a way to put a lock on disk port to not let it accept or recognize disks or something >_>

I don't think so, I guess you'll just have to decline each update you get from a disc.

I see. There isn't any way to keep the ps3 from at least noticing or ignoring the update and just not let it play?

Some games will update because of the "PS3_UPDATE" on the disc which already has the update. You could delete the "PS3_UPDATE" folder for backed up games and that will stop it from asking for updates too. Not sure if it will connect to PSN though.

You could change the version of the game to the latest one in the Param.sfo file to stop it updating. I've done it with a few games to play online.

The game itself will ask for a patch like 1.01 for example. But it will not install the newest firmware automatically.

Does the spoofer prevent newer games from updating the ps3?
