December 13, 2012 // 7:44 pm - After being inactive for a while since my previous release because I had a problem, finally I finished to create and fix my personal tools for PS3 PKG / SPKG for CFW 3.55 / 4.XX complete with source code.

Download: PS3 PKG / SPKG Tools for CFW 3.55 / 4.XX with Source Code


This tools are based on failoverflow's tools, but with support for spkg files on CFW 4.XX, for for example, install a PUP directly from XMB or avoid to do a downgrade to 3.55 to install it.

A spkg file contains header/metadata for that pkg who has his name, PS3 on +3.56 checks his header/metadata for matching, if not fails and can't install. On FW 3.55 and below is not necessary that spkg files.

Minimum Requirements

  • Patched spu_pkg_rvk_verifier (disable ecdsa check)
  • Have spkg files on your ".ps3" folder


  • spkg.exe - This tool creates a spkg file from a pkg file
  • unspkg.exe - This tool decrypts spkg files (*.spkg_hdr.1)
  • new_pkg.exe - The tool creates a pkg file and simultaneously a spkg file, the last one is compatible with the first one
  • new_unpkg.exe - This tool decrypts a pkg file and exports his decrypted header/metadata

Thanks for your response but If I wanted to upgrade I would have done so already, this post was cleary to see if anyone was working on this or if there was a fix already.. this is even for people that choose to stay on 3.55 with spoofers for whatever reason they seem fit. So thanks for your input but if you are going to rant its not needed.. thanks

why dont you just install rogero 4.30 v1.09 or rebug 4.25v1REX. then you can just use netflix/psn etc. without Sen enabler. why you still running outdated no longer supported dongle garbage ?

save yourself countless hours of pain and torture on something you might never get working, and just update to newer cfw.

Hallo nathanr3269 among others ^_^

I am a User on 3.41 CFW Hermes and I was wondering about the Spoof that you made PS3 Spoofer Enabler & Disabler [9.99] [HERMES] the link seems to be down

Does anyone have a working link and has someone gotten it to work properly? (Just wondering because someone wrote in the comment section that it didn't go well, and does anyone know what the /B stands for?)

Thanks in Advance

Best regards/Pretorion

Edit: /B Beta perhaps?, just crossed my mind that Hermes called his version Beta, if not please correct me

So I spent this weekend trying to get nextflix working, ended up finding both the 1.00 and 2.00 version floating around (Man it was a pain to find). After playing around I finally got Netflix somewhat working with v 2.00 (CFW v2 dongle 2.51 +PSN / SEN Enabler and Disabler).

Netflix loads up , gets pass the psn signin screen (I had to edit the Param.sfo file to read as v 2.10) and when I thought it was going to work it kicks me out to the dashboard, no error nothing. So I was wondering if anyone had any success with getting Nextflix working with the new PSN/SEN enablers.

PS. I tried to update to v2.10 but I kept getting the 80010017 error, which looks like to be because v2.10 is using 3.60+ keys?

just downgrade your dongle to 2.51 and you could access MM without any error

whats the point of going online where i can't play games that asked me to update it to newer version which may result of updating my software system to 4+ i managed to sign in to psn and sync my trophy, i'm running v2 cfw and dongle ver is 2.51.. any help please ??

On 3.41 SEN Enabler doesn't work, Sony implemented passphrases in 3.55, you need to update your firmware to 3.55 for try it

I tried using restore default settings and rebuild database option in Recovery menu but no luck
