June 30, 2012 // 5:34 pm - Following up on the PS3ITA, PSN / SEN Enabler & Disabler and my previous release of spoofer PKG tools and Spoofer (9.99), I upgraded them to one PKG for each CFW for enable or disable PSN / SEN access (both functions in one).

It also includes a GUI for enabling PSN / SEN so if something is wrong it will restore your PS3 files preventing a RSOD on the PlayStation 3 console.


Spoofer Tool for PC is updated too, the actual version is 5.5, with a new tool called fix_psn.exe

PS3 Spoofer Tools v5.5 (Only for Cygwin/Linux)

Now you can fix necessary files yourself with fix_psn.exe

The new options in fix_psn.exe are:

  • files: Fix single files (use extractor.exe or copy your dev_flash files in "Files" folder) *
  • pkg: Fix your files and build a PKG
  • pup_files: Extract PUP files, fix and re-build PUP file fixed

*: You must copy manually to your PS3 with this option

For example, for fix files only put your vsh.self and version.txt in "Files" folder and call it in the console Cygwin/Linux (Remember navigate to folder in Cygwin/Linux console)

Download: PS3 Spoofer Tools v5.5 / PS3 Spoofer Tools v5.5 (Mirror)

SEN Enabler & Disabler [4.20]

This enable (4.20) or disable SEN access for your CFW, simply install *ONLY THE PKG FOR YOUR CFW* (CFW Kmeaw = PKG for Kmeaw) and run it in XMB, you will see the menu, first if you wish to continue choose "Yes" or if you wish exit to XMB choose "No".

If you continue program will ask you if you want enable fix, and for disable in this screen choose "No" and you will be able to disable fix. At the moment of enabling fix, it will create a backup of your dev_flash files to restore and prevent RSOD


Q: Is this tool safe?
A: Yes. it is, this have a restore process if something goes wrong for prevent RSOD

Q: It works with all CFW?
A: Nop, only with CFW 3.55 and 3.56 (PKG precompiled and fixed)

Q: It works on OFW?
A: Nop, only for CFW

Q: I have RSOD/Black Screen, how can i solve it?
A: Reinstall your CFW in Recovery Mode

Q: Fix is already complete but i have an error while log in SEN
A: Go to Recovery Mode and choose Restore Default Settings, Rebuild Database and Restore File System. In some cases you need to change your login password

Q: It works with DRM dongles?
A: Yes, but you need to have dongle update 2.51 and not 2.70

Q: I have CFW Rebug but when PS3 starts shows Black Screen
A: Make sure you don't have any spoof and Rebug Mode in Normal before installing, to fix Reinstall CFW from Recovery Menu


As always, if you see something wrong, please tell me.

Hope this helps someone.

We don't make a lot of new threads because very few people reply in them so it's easier for me to maintain keeping them in our ongoing threads vs 50 threads with 1 post each. I know it doesn't work well for everyone, but I have to do what is easiest for me since I am stuck upkeeping everything here.

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
