i have a quick try on the program , and i have the following error:

PUP Unpacker & Decrypter v2.2
By Evilnat

Selected Mode: Unpack/Decrypt entire PUP (All Mode)

- Unpacking PUP file...
- Unpacking update_files.tar...
- Decrypting PKG files...
- Unpacking PKG files...
- Decrypting UPL.xml.pkg...
- Decrypting CORE_OS_PACKAGE.pkg...
- Unpacking CORE_OS_PACKAGE.pkg...
- Decrypting ps3swu.self...
- Decrypting SELF files of CORE_OS...
- Decrypting default.spp...
perror: No error
header decryption failed

the OFW i used is 4.0+ ( just download from $ony)
i know the above say that i need the key to decrypt it , but :

1) if a PS3 is at 3.55CFW, it can upgrade to 4.0+ of course.
2) 3.55CFW should not have key of 4.0+
3) but the PS3 unit should work , and so is that key = this key ? as required to unpack 4.0+ PUP ?

thanks all , i know this is hard to have all these work done ~ great job ~

This program only unpack/decrypt files of PUP (any, but for SELF/SPRX files of 3.60+ you need that keys), it don't modifiy PUP file and repack again

I'm working in a new APP that modify a PUP file, spoof files and then repack all in a new PUP
