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

Works with PSJailbreak2 clone and PS3YES-Pro port1_hermes_spoof355_ps3yespro.bin

put port1_hermes_spoof355_ps3yespro.bin with psjailbreak2 updater with IMPORT Payload and it works fine...

If you wanna keep posting crap like this then go to a forum that likes these kind of posts like the official PS forums, here we talk about getting pirated games to work and how.

If you don't want to hear about it then cya. Would be good to NOT hear your $ony anti-piracy dribble.

No, GT5 doesn't work but it didn't ask for an update.

So this HEX does just that. instead of editing the param.sfo file you no longer need to. It stops about 5 seconds of editing.

Trying to goto PSN it still asks to update. GT5 doesn't work, its not really that good a find but its the next step up from the 3.50 spoof.

It just removes that annoying "There is an update available" message that pops op every minute or so if you're browsing the XMB.

So the question is why they release this hex? it doesn't do anything at all.
