Home PS4 News - Latest PlayStation 4 and PS3 News

169w ago - Sorry for being quiet the last few days guys, but I'm still working on things for AC1D CFW and also found some changes to newer PUPs so I have modded the source of KaKaRoToKS Fix_TAR to reflect this in the Fix TAR v3 PS3 homebrew application for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware.

Download: Fix TAR v3 PS3 Homebrew App for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware / Cygwin1.dll (Required) / Fix TAR v3 (Fixed) PS3 Homebrew App for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware / Fix TAR v3.2 PS3 Homebrew App for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware / Fix TAR v3 (Fixed v2) PS3 Homebrew App for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware by nathanr3269

Also what Mathieulh has stated about the 3.55 / 3.56 tar owner id, owner and group is simply BS. It hasn't changed up to 3.72. Debug tar's have diff info but on 4.0 Retail/Debug it's the same.

There for i fixed the original source of fix_tar (owner id from 0001752 back to 0000644), modded a fix_tar_debug and modded a new fix_tar_v3 which also works on retail and debug fw.

Again:

  • fix_tar = retail fw up to 3.72
  • fix_tar_debug = debug fw up to 3.72(?)
  • fix_tar_v3 = retail and debug fw 4.0

Have Fun -cfwprpht-

Here it is with fixed permission for 4.00:

Download: Fix TAR v3 (Fixed v2)

Sets permissions of update_files.tar to 0000644

Sorry needed a rest. I was so tired. Anyway i found something additional out about the source code. There is a value for check the filemode aka permission on a tar. It just wasn't in use and needed to be added into the source on a other place.

Download: Fix TAR v3.2

To be displayed on the command line i added also some stuff to do this. And some info about update_files.tar on diff FW's:

Thanks friend

fix_tar_update works fine with spkg_hdr.tar, is the same data like update_files.tar, but content of spkg_hdr.tar is impossible to decrypt, there's no info about it... so is ok like original file, not need to change

It's great, nathanr3296, thanks for help, I appreciate a lot. I'm going to test it soon, but I'm almost sure it works perfectly. Could you complete this great work creating a fix_tar also for spkg_hdr.tar?

I'll +rep you as soon as I can.

As i see, the data for fix_tar have changed too much on FW 4.00 Retail

In PUP file 3.55, the data are all the same (PKG/TAR, update_files.tar, etc...):

3.55 PUP
=======

Owner ID = 0001752
Group ID = 0001274
Owner = pup_tool
Group = psnes
Ustar = ustar


But in a PUP file 4.00 is different, data of update_files.tar and PKG/TAR files of dev_flash are not the same like 3.55 PUP:

4.00 PUP
========

update_files.tar
---------------
Owner ID = 0001762
Group ID = 0001274
Owner = make_pup2
Group = psnes
Ustar = ustar


PKG/TAR dev_flash
------------------
Owner ID = 0000764
Group ID = 0000764
Owner = tetsu
Group = tetsu
Ustar = ustar


As you can see we have to use two fix_tar files for each one, i made and fixed these tools, fix_tar_pkg-tar (for PKG/TAR files of dev_flash) and fix_tar_update (for update_files.tar)

Download: Fix TAR v3 Fixed

I think all is correct what i made, i check data for long time

I hope it helped cfwprophet

No, absolutely no, since it is an .exe for windows to work on creating and fixing of the firmware. It's an application for the developers, so it isn't used by normal user, and few people usually use it, so it's very difficult someone notices a bug and reports it on a forum.

Maybe the permissions weren't included into source code so the application writes them at wrong offset. I would like to invite other developers here on forum as Evilnat aka nathanr3269 to work on it if it's the case.

Take consider this version has only a little bug, the previous version (tar_fix_v2 by TEAMSOS) is completely lopsided and doesn't work as it promised because it doesn't fix the values as it should do (the values assigned are incorrect). I hope cfwprophet fixes as soon as he can, since he is already busy with his tests and his hardware flasher on own ps3.

I'll try to be aware of such statements in future. Just got a message from Ezio about a bug which i could track down as mine one

Anyway i fix'd that and will do some more test's then i'll post the fix version

I tkink this is devs only app but how a hombrew app for 4.00 retail and debug, nice work , how you sign this homebrew app for new FW? can you release the keys?

This is interesting to me: "Also what Mathieulh has stated about the 3.55 / 3.56 tar owner id, owner and group is simply BS. It hasn't changed up to 3.72. Debug tar's have diff info but on 4.0 Retail/Debug it's the same"

Can you explain what math said and what BS? he is a rat.
