January 7, 2011 // 3:44 am - Update #2: GeoHot has updated his site again with PS3 Homebrew Signing Tools (PS3 Homebrew Signing Tools with DLL Files or PS3 Homebrew Signing Tools OSX) and Source Code (Windows users will also need or grab the PS3 PKG Signer Windows GUI by FamousMassacre) with a brief guide HERE alongside How to JailBreak a PlayStation 3 on 3.55 Firmware.

Also, PS3 Tools (Compiled) and PS3 Tools Updates (Compiled) are now available for Win32 users as well.

To quote: "homebrew signing source make_self_npdrm makes valid NPDRM selfs from elfs it does not contain any info on decrypting or removing NPDRM NPDRM is required for interoperability of our homebrew applications package_finalize turns your debug packages into psuedoretail packages, psuedoretail packages install on a geohot jailbroken PS3.

i'm excited to see what you will create open source SDK @ PSL1GHT"

These PS3 tools can now be used to convert ELF files into valid NPDRM SELF files, and a PSL1ght PS3 PKG Python Script is also available, example usage: --contentid UP0001-TEST00003_00-0000000000000000 build/pkg/ PS3Tetris.pkg

Update: GeoHot has now released a PS3 3.55 JailBreak Custom Firmware PUP followed shortly by PS3 3.55 JailBreak r1 which fixes the 8002FB27 error and also shared the Test.PKG File from the video.

To quote from his site: "it's jailbreak time open the zip, you know how to install 3.55 only would be pirates, don't waste your time do not mirror file, link to here is the package from the video no donations accepted right now, don't get scammed

old homebrew will not work new homebrew signing tools coming soon..."

Today GeoHot has posted a YouTube video on his site showing a JailBroken PS3 3.55 Firmware console running PlayStation 3 Homebrew.

This news comes just days after his previous dePKG PS3 Firmware Package Decrypter and PS3 Keys news alongside the first signed PS3 homebrew on version 3.55 Firmware.

To quote from the video's caption, which simply states: "It's 5AM, this is homebrew. No release dates as usual.

3.55 firmware omg omg omg omg no patching lv2

shouts to fail0verflow and psl1ght"

I personally think not having proper access to the kernel and such is a complete waste of time - what homebrew does he assume we will use?

Hey man I was wondering if you could please hook a fellow colts fan up with that uncharted 2 pkg.

Ok, so I think I fixed the problem with geohots app crashing.

#1. Use the correct command-line:
ie. make_self_npdrm elf self contentid --> make_self_npdrm blackboxftp.elf EBOOT.BIN BB0011111

#2. Make sure the elf your using will work. I was using the elf that sony sdk creates, but geohot tools didn't like it. Take the self sony sdk creates, unself it, and make_self_npdrm works.

The next step is to pkg the files, and obviously the sony tools don't like the EBOOT.BIN I'm supplying now. A little help here is appreciated. What command would I use with makepkg (usage: makepkg [key suffix] [version] filename.pkg dir_with_files). I tried makepkg retail 3.55.0 filename.pkg dir_with_files.

Opps, contentid actually looks like this --> IP9100-BB0011111_00-0000111122223333. Also can't use makepkg as it's for firmware, gonna download PSL1GHT for cygwin.

Exactly this.

1 - Make sure you are on official 3.55. You can install the official 3.55 PUP onto any CFW 3.55
2 - Make sure PS3 language is set to English
3 - Install this from the XMB, not recovery menu

got that also. instead of the written steps, you have to do the following: install the original 3.55 from recovery mode. the jb patch has to be installed through XMB! go to system update, choose the external storage (or how is it called...), and after that it will work properly.

this might be a stupid question, but does this mean that these new PUP files will do the same on fw 3.55 as what we are able to do on 3.41 or have things not progressed to that stage...

sorry if that is a silly question but i find it difficult to understand the programming side of things.

thanks in advance

I had the same problem ("corrupted data") after trying it with two different memory sticks. I ended up doing a quick format on one making it at FAT32 (not FAT[16] or NTFS) and I was able to load the Update PUP from the native PS3 System Update menu right away. Didn't even have to bother with Recovery Mode.
