February 24, 2012 // 1:06 am - Following up on my first release of spoofer PKG tools, I upgraded them to one PKG for each CFW for enable or disable Spoof (both functions in one) and with a GUI for enabling spoof (if something is wrong it will restore your PS3 files preventing a RSOD on the PlayStation 3).

Spoofer Tool for PC is updated too, the actual version is 5.0, now tools spoofer_pup.exe, spoofer_pup_repack.exe, spoofer.exe and a new one, spoofer_pkg.exe, are all in one, a new spoofer.exe tool upgraded

PS3 Spoofer Tools v5.0

Now you can choose version and image version to spoof and build a PKG with it to install in your PS3, is upgraded and fixed like other tools (keys.exe and extractor.exe).

The new options in spoofer.exe are:

  • help: Show info screen
  • files: Spoof single files (use extractor.exe or copy your dev_flash files in Spoofed folder) *
  • pkg: Spoof your files and build a PKG
  • pup_files: Extract PUP files and spoof *
  • pup_rebuild: Extract files, spoof and re-build PUP file spoofed

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

For example, if you want spoof with version 4.50 and image version 88888 and build a PKG (Remember navigate to folder in Cygwin console):

Now you will see a PKG file named Spoofer Enabler & Disabler.pkg with your files spoofed

PS3 Spoofer Enabler & Disabler

This enable (9.99) or disable spoof 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 spoof, and for disable in this screen choose "No" and you will be able to disable spoof. At the moment of enabling spoof, it will create a backup of your dev_flash files to restore and prevent RSOD

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

Hope this helps someone.

it would be great if there's a homebrew application on PS3 that can edit the spoof firmware version without installing anything.

Nice! Love these little tools, for people like me learning programming it helps to understand certain aspects of how the memory works in these newer consoles. Keep up the good work! (not sure if this double posted sorry if it did).

Thanks both

With tool spoofer_pup.exe is HIGHLY recommended use PUP file of your CFW you have installed on your PS3, it don't spoof PUP file, it extracts the files [vsh.self and version.txt], spoof them and save in Spoofed folder, then copy to your dev_flash with Dev_blind.

Don't confuse with that friends, it spoof files not the entire PUP

I have done this PS3 PUP / Dev_Flash File Spoofer v3 Tool (basically is an script that use other tools) long time ago for easily spoof necessary files from a PUP file or your own files of dev_flash. This works on Cygwin and Ubuntu (not CMD windows)

Download: PS3 PUP / Dev_Flash File Spoofer v3 Tool

There are 4 tools that makes a different job:

  • keys.exe - Install PS3 keys
  • extractor.exe - Extract vsh.self, index.dat and version.txt of PUP file
  • spoofer.exe - Spoof your flash files [vsh.self and version.txt] (put there in same folder with spoofer.exe)
  • spoofer_pup.exe - Extract and spoof automatically files of PUP (it must be in same folder with spoofer_pup.exe)

You must choose what version and image version you want to spoof in tools spoofer.exe and spoofer_pup.exe, for example, if i want to spoof to 6.40 i put this on Cygwin console (you can choose any image version):

[Register or Login to view code]

When it finish you have your spoofed files in Spoofed folder. Version must have same numbers of characters, otherwise it give you error on PS3. If you do something wrong PS3 will boot up Red Screen, if that occurs re-install CFW from Recovery Menu.

File index.dat is really not necessary to extract, it creates a new one with spoofed version.txt (spoofed tools does it auto).

I hope this helps anyone. If you see any error or bug please contact me.
