225w ago - 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 libeay32.zip 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:

pkg.py --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 geohot.com 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?

Just experiment with any methods you can come up with, if it works, Great! If not, try again!

If you want backups, stick with 3.41 for now. If you just want to play your PSN content again, go with 3.55 so you can download sync trophies & re-download your PSN content.

I appreciate your response, and all your contributions, but I wasnt looking to be spoonfed. Just wanted to see if this methodology was even feasible. I was going to attempt another route, but this was shorter and I didn't know the specifics. I'll do some tinkering.

i'm not gonna spoon feed it to ya, do some research. It's not that hard to teach these things to yourself, trial and error my friend.

the directory does not matter, as long as you have make_self_npdrm.exe libeay32.dll & zlib1.dll in the same directory it will work just fine.

edit: if your using cygwin but the dll files in cygwin/bin directory

Ok, 2 questions: How would I take a debug pkg and edit it to reflect the latest update? Say I have a 1.00 debug and the latest update is 1.02?

Second: Would I need to makeself, to encrypt the seperate files, then makepkg, and finally finalizepkg?

Thanks in advance.

Is anyone else having a problem with make_self_npdrm just flat out not working?

It doesn't give an error or anything, its just it doesn't work.

When I run it, it just does nothing.
It's like this:
C:\PS3> make_package_npdrm

C:\PS3>

It's very annoying, I have a modded self I need to try out!
