PS3 4.11 Install Package Files on OFW Modified Shop / Kiosk Firmware


Sponsored Links
144w ago - Following up on the previous article, today master0wn3r at NGU (linked above) has made an updated guide on how to add Install Package Files on PS3 4.11 OFW essentially making it into a modified PlayStation 3 Shop / Kiosk Firmware.

Below is the guide, to quote: This firmware will not install / run PS3 homebrew packages! Everything you install on your console is on your own risk, this firmware has been tested and confirmed working, if you brick your console its 110% your own fault!

Hello all, I wanna show you all how to get install package files on your OFW 4.11. It still has some bugs but I am working on it

Please people, if you get errors don't blame me! be happy this is for OFW 4.11 and you don't have to downgrade first, this is a little step forward in the PS3 jailbreak / unlock for 4.11.

Requirements:

1. USB Stick
2. The Modded Firmware (below)
3. A PS3
4. Know how to get in Recovery mode

Main Features:

  • Complete Patch Blocker inside firmware, Blocks all game updates and any application that has a update server besides System Firmware Updater.
  • Install Package Files is added to XMB under Settings menu right below Network Settings.
  • Automatic Update, this feature can be found under Settings menu then enter System Settings Sub menu, Scroll to the bottom and turn this on or off, This being ON will automatically Update the system firmware from internet on the booting (Turning on) of the console.. Recommended to keep this to off to avoid Sony releasing a patch.
  • Automatic Update via Flash Drive (Any storage device plugged in with update data of firmware) on booting of console, this feature is on by default and not currently a way to turn it off. But you will never want it turned off because when i release a new firmware all you have to do is plug the flash drive into the PS3 and turn it on to start the procedure of the next firmware.
  • This is based off of Demo mode firmware so restrictions are present that are irremovable at the moment, PlayStation Store is Blocked off, Go to saved data and click the PSN Plus Online Data to enter the PSN store. PlayStation Home use is by having a friend invite you to Home, PS Vita Deleting Backups feature is removed.

What does it include?

1. The long expected "Install Package Files Folder"
2. Automatic updates from games (PSN+ Content see Settings )
3. For now it wont properly install and run package files, but i am working on it
4. Installation on the good old 4.11 OFW
5. Your console is a SHOP / KIOSK Console from CEX to SEX (lol?)

You won't need a hardware flasher like E3 or Progskeet for this to get this working. Note that this isn't an April Fools joke like Nodex, this firmware will install successfully with the install package files folder

With this Modified Firmware you will get the install package files folder in the settings folder, and automatic game updates when you start your PS3, it gives you a few useful extensions to your OFW. I will give a tutorial how to do it, and also how to convert your console back to retail, please tell me all the bugs you found! Here you go:

Now here's the procedure you need to do to install this:

  • Grab and put firmware update on a flash drive as usual you should know how to do that
  • Now insert it into the PS3 and put the console into recovery mode then do the system update like that, it will not be detected from the XMB menu updater so you must do it this way.
  • Now that's basically it just accept the agreement and start installing.
  • Once you are into the firmware it will say 4.11 demonstration mode in the down right corner of your screen, navigate over to Settings menu then scroll down to security settings hover over it do not enter it.
  • Now on your controller Hold down L1+R1+Select+Square and you'll be prompted with a security code 4 digits Enter your security code for your PS3 if you've never changed it then it'll be 0000 if you restore default everything on this firmware then it will reset the code to 2464.
  • Now when your down click enter and it'll unlock everything, you'll have to do this every time you restart your system.
  • Now to convert back to retail just grab the other firmware (below) and you can install this through the XMB this time.
  • Now you're done, in the future i will work on this and exploit it future and possibly there will be a jailbreak. So stay updated and I'll work on it further soon.

Note: A new way to enter the PSN store is easier, go to your save data utility and press save online (the PSN+ save option). Now it will ask if you wanna get PSN+ member press yes and it opens the PSN store. BTW Thank you if you install this and report any bugs you found!

Ok your VSH is 'Shop' then you can't install CEX firmware under normal circumstances. Unfortunately my PS3 recently died, so I can't replicate the scenario and give a definite answer. This is what I would do, in the order I would have done it( I am assuming you have a PS3 with a NOR flash. Don't do this If your ps3 doesn't have a NOR flash) :

1/ (this is most likely not to work, but still worth a shot) I would use PS3MFW Builder to patch an (original) OFW 4.00 pup with (and only with) the "Patch firmware for installation shop/promo unit". IF you don't have that option in PS3MFW Builder you can download the task file for that here: "https://rapidshare.com/files/2110721203/patch_shop.tcl".

Once downloaded just put it in the task folder of PS3MFW builder and patch the OFW 4.00 pup. The modified pup you created should be installable from the XMB. Don't worry if this doesn't work it'll just give you an error and nothing bad will happen. If it does work your ps3 will be CEX(retail) and on OFW 4.00.

2/ If you have two hard-drives which are compatible with the ps3. I would do a HDD switch, (again this may not work). While the ps3 is off, take out the HDD you are using the ps3 with in demo mode, and put in another one (this other HDD must be blank or come from another PS3 or only have retail FW on it, also this HDD hdd will be formatted if it has not been used on this PS3 before) and turn on the ps3. It should prompt you to insert a usb stick with 4.00 or later FW. Put a original (retail) OFW 4.00 in the PS3/UPDATE/ directory on your USB. Follow the prompts, It will ask if you want to format the HDD, say yes.

Once its done it's preparations it should then install OFW 4.00 and when it finishes you will no longer be in demo mode. If this did not work go to "3/" otherwise keep reading. Now that you have one HDD booting into retail FW that works, swap this HDD with the Demo FW HDD. Synchronise your trophies with PSN and copy all your saves to a USB stick.

Swap the HDD to the Retail FW one. Make the same user accounts that were on the other HDD copy the saves to the relevant accounts. Then sign into PSN on the accounts you just created, Synchronise your trophies with PSN on each account that has a PSN account. Your PS3 is now running OFW 4.00 with the saves and trophies from your old HDD.

3/ If "1/" and "2/" did not work I would resort to downgrading my PS3 with a hardware flasher like the E3 Flasher. If you want to keep you don't want to format the original HDD (the one you are currently using with the DEMO firmware) use another hdd during the downgrade to 3.55 process. Once you have downgraded to 3.55.

Turn off the PS3 put swap the HDD already in the PS3 with your Demo 4.00 HDD. It'll say the PS3 cannot boot properly and require a re-installation using PS3 FW 3.55 or above. You can either Install OFW 4.00 or my 4.00 HFW v3. But if you still want to have homebrew you should install Rogero's 3.55 CFW v2 (most likely the same firmware you used in the downgrade procedure). Once installed you should not be running in demo mode anymore

I hope this helps.

How about you do the things we have asked so we can further diagnose what went wrong so we understand the situation and provide the best help possible. Worst case scenario, you will have to downgrade with a hardware flasher.

But I need to know if the vsh.self on your ps3 is the CEX or Shop version. You can this out by going into system settings and then to system information. Hold down 'L1', 'R1', 'left d-pad button', 'square' for about 3 seconds and then immediately press and hold down start. Somewhere on the first line it should either say 'CEX' or 'Shop'. Can you tell me which one it is?
