December 15, 2010 // 1:58 am - Update: PS3Break has also updated their hex codes to support PS3 Firmware 3.55 Spoofing.

To quote: It is the same as the 3.50 spoof payload, tricking your console into thinking its on the latest firmware. This does not allow you to go online, or play newer games. The purpose of the spoof is to prevent your console from telling you to update, that's all.

This update only stops you from updating to v3.55. Unfortunately PSN and v3.50 firmware based games are still unavailable.

Which means and I must stated in BOLD:

  • NO GT5 (original or backup)
  • NO N4S:HP (same as above)

It appears the PS3Yes Team have worked out a way to properly spoof the PS3's 3.55 Firmware requirement and have released some hex codes for their PS JailBreak clone USB devices below.

Download: PS3Yes Pro Port1 Hermes Spoof 3.55 Hex Code / PS3Yes Hermes v4b Spoof 3.55 Hex Code / All Boards PL3/Hermes 4B With 3.55 Spoof Hex Codes by Cyberskunk.

Is this only to prevent updates? If so, who cares? But what else can it do? PSN? GT5? Could this lead to more interesting things?!

OR is this just a simple mod of Hermes spoofing of 3.50 - Looks like it

To quote from the PS3Yes Team:


We just release SPOOF355 for PS3YES-PRO and PS3YES to prevent update.

This firmware prevent the console update to fw3.55.

Best regards

This has nothing to do with updating. This spoof is to help Jailbreak users and none jailbreak users to bypass 3.55, so they can play online on the playstation network.

Naturally some people don't have other people to deal with.

This is completely useless. Even if it blocks the update in jailbreak mode, what is going to stop someone from turning the PS3 on normally and updating it while your not around?

If the user using the PS3 is smart enough to complete the jailbreak procedure then he/she would already know not to update the console.

This is only useful if done using a permanent dev_flash method. Then it would be a solid solution to prevent accidental updating.

Very interesting thanks for the info.. still trying to figure out what jailbreak device i want and ps3yes and psjailbreak2 look more promising now.

Has only tried all the ps3 bypassing programs to see if they are all blocked now since the DNS glitch is now blocked? Im looking forward to a solution to get online permanently without updating... happy hacking.
