• Did someone just say custom firmware? Yep, KaKaRoTo, after all the crazy news the last few days, has pumped out the FIRST PS3 custom firmware! What does this CFW allow? Throw those USB boards and those cheap clones out the door because now we can install PKG files without the need of “jailbreaking” the PS3! KaKaRoTo’s CFW currently does not support booting of backups but it is very possible to do and expect the feature to be available VERY soon.

    To quote from KaKaRoTo’s blog:

    IF SERVER DOWN…here my hard copy… :) )

    PS3: First ‘Custom Firmware’ now working!

    Great news!

    Thanks to the tools made by the fail0verflow team (and thanks to sven in particular for his work on the pkg/unpkg tools), the first “Custom Firmware” is now available for the PS3!

    I see a lot of questions coming up really fast on my Twitter account, so here are the basic things you need to know :

    Because of legal/copyright issues, I will not provide the custom firmware to anyone, however, I’ve made available all the tools necessary to transform an Official firmware update, into a custom one, just grab my ps3utils repository from github, compile, then run :

    ./create_cfw.sh PS3UPDATE.PUP CFW.PUP

    This will take the official firmware, unpack it, modify it, then repack it correctly (requires you to install ps3tools).

    This requires Linux of course, but I’m sure others will do it for the masses and illegally release those files somewhere.

    The advantage here is that you can do it for any firmware, if you want to keep version 3.41, then give it the 3.41 update, if you are on 3.55 already and can’t downgrade, then run the script on the official 3.55 firmware and it will create a modified 3.55 firmware.

    You can put the file in a USB drive under the filename “PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP” and then go to system update in the XMB, and it will allow you to install the update (even if you’re already on 3.55).

    People are asking what are the features of this firmware, it’s simple, all it does is to add those “Install Package Files” options to the Game section of the XMB. It doesn’t do anything else!

    This firmware will not allow you to run the currently available homebrew application. Once the homebrew developers re-package their files in a ‘retail’ .pkg format with signed executable, then it will work (this should be coming soon thanks to the work of the fail0verflow team).

    Since the kernel is left unmodified, this means that this custom firmware is really meant for future homebrew installation, and it will not allow piracy. I plan on keeping it that way.

    This is just the first attempt at custom firmware, and it only contains a minor modification to allow you to install pkg files directly, eventually we’ll get some more options added to it in the future. This is just starting to get interesting!

    p.s: Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible!

    Enjoy! Smile

    Some updates from his Twitter:

    KaKaRoToKS:
    Thanks to @b3ll for testing and confirming my create_cfw script does create a valid, working cfw update file More to come
    56 minutes ago

    KaKaRoToKS:
    First CFW working. Grab http://bit.ly/hszcH3, then “./create_cfw.sh PS3UPDAT.355.PUP CFW.PUP”. Permanently adds “install pkg files” menu.

    Because of LEGAL and COPYRIGHT issues the compiled download version will not be provided, but you can grab the required files VIA GitHub below (if you jumped down here to see the download link read the blog quote above to see how to compile):

    STORY UPDATES:

    UPDATE 1:

    Confirmed working ontop of FW 3.55 - please be patient as updates and progress roles in - don’t rush and do something you will regret in the future!

    Have not tested yet, original source here:

    I created a 3.55-CFW (thanks to KaKaRoTo’s tools) and uploaded it

    More info about this CFW can be read from KaKaRoTo’s blog , check it out here before installing PS3: First ‘Custom Firmware’ now working! « KaKaRoTo's Blog

    Links :
    Link : PS3UPDAT.355Cfw.KaKaRoTo.pup

    MD5 : 38BE61D5B4D1E33BA91632994275DA8E

    Note 1: you can install 3.55 signed packages with this without dongles and get on PSN (for now)

    Note 2: I would NOT currently recommend installing this CFW for anyone without the official 3.55 installed, I’d wait for more testing to be done

    Note 3: Only 3.55-signed pkg files will install with this and only 3.55-signed code will run

    UPDATE 2:

    Greg over at PS3-Hacks.com has created a compiled copy for us to enjoy with the newest updates of KaKaRoTo (fixed missing XMBs and PS1/PS2 support for compatible models):

    Quick rundown on how to install this (same as a normal firmware) - you may have to access PS3 reovery mode to install CFW. This is how you would go back to your ORIGINAL PS3 firmware too:

    Depending on your situation you may need to install the CFW PUP from the PS3 Recovery Menu. To do that, follow these steps:

    1. Ensure the PS3UPDAT.PUP is in /PS3/UPDATE/ on your USB device.
    2. Power down the PS3.
    3. Now press and hold the power button, the system will startup and shutdown again.
    4. Release the power button, then press & hold power again, you’ll hear one beep followed by two consecutive beeps.
    5. Release power then follow the on-screen instructions. You’re now in the recovery menu.
    6. Connect the USB device and select “System Update.”
    7. Hope for the best.

      and u can do it with any firmware but still just 3.41 and lower are "jailbreakable". I think this means that u can have a 3.55 CFW and play online but u cant then jailbreak ur PS3.

      He told in his twitter that this would work on any firmware so if u want to make a 3.41 CFW u can do it and still be able to jailbreak ur PS3. That 3.55 CFW is a POC FW so if u want ur backups dont use it yet.

      but for people on 3.55 no problem if u want to try it

      That was too funny shirley

      I guarantee by tomorrow there will be some sort of modification to this cfw. I just hopes someone enables to actually install and use hombrew like emulators and such. I hope someone makes a file for us so I can update to 3.55 until then im not upgrading lol

      So what version is this based on? If we upgrade to this, what will the ps3 allow us to upgrade after. I ask because I have a preloaded 3.50 that won't downgrade. If I use this it could overcome that limitation. Perhaps I can upgrade to a normal os after or a better custom firmware as long as the ps3 will allow it.

      An awesome development, but I have just one concern.. there will eventually be a CFW that allows backup loading. While that's not inherently bad, the fact that people can modify backups is. So, a CFW could easily allow people to cheat online if they wanted to.

      I think that any CFW that allows backup loading should forcibly log you off of PSN to prevent this. And yes, I know logging into PSN with a CFW is inherently a bad idea as it is, but people are going to do it, and they're going to cheat. There should be safeguards in all CFW that come out to prevent cheating online.

      Back more on topic.. aside from trophies etc disappearing from the XMB, has anyone found any problems with this CFW?

      How did Geohot sign this ??

      http://www.ps3hax.net/2011/01/geohot...gned-homebrew/

      Will it be the same procedure with the game loader PKG??

      KakaRoto doesn't want us using backups with his firmware i see, strange when everyone running emulators will be downloading illegal roms i'm sure, dreamcast etc etc, how will he stop those people lol.

      No offence but he should just let us use unsigned code, since what he is doing is illegal anyway, right....... i expect some flame from this but you all know unsigned will happen :thefinger:

      Will making a 3.41 cfw with the ps3tool erase the hard drive on a slim? Am thinking it would, but would like a second opinion

      Is this correct?

      - Can be used to allow 3.55 to install and run homebrew (if it's been signed for 3.55)

      - If you install this as a CFW for 3.41 you can install and run current homebrew without the need of a jailbreak device

      Im far from an expert but reading some of these comments does make you wonder what it is some people read when they come to this site because it sure as hell isnt the INFORMATION PROVIDED!
      Its an insult to the creators of all this that we now have people installing this CFW and starting threads saying "crappy backup manager 1.1 wont work,this this things ****!" (well you get my drift anyway).
      Next time just post "first",its not even half as annoying

      Now I guess we just have to wait for some homebrew that is actually signed for 3.55cfw. Since right now really can't use the cfw for anything.

      Thank you for your opinion ASSITCH, your answer was intelligent and detailed about the subject at hand.

      If anyone thinks i was insulting the coder thats not my intention, i just don't see any point in not allowing unsigned code, like i said what he is doing is illegal anyway.

      Awesome work, even if it isn't a genuine CFW, its still allowing homebrew, even if of a presently unused, but future used kernal.
      Thanks

      Unfortunately, the compiling process isn't working for me...

      I thought I'd ask though...
      From what I can tell its all open source, but is it legal...?

      As i understod this CFW from KakaRoto will currently only be useful for those who wants to install signes .pkg files.

      Currently the only useful signed .pkg`s out there is game demos like nfs hot pursuit demo that cant be found on the psn.

      This is not useful at all until people start signing .pkg`s

      And that KakaRoto suddently changes his mind about piracy/Backups is stupid. That guy have worked hard to release such hacks like payloads for the jailbreaking that increases game compatibility if i aint wrong.

      Well, I live in the US, which from what I can tell, due to the DMCA, the process of the CFW stuff is illegal, please correct me if I'm wrong.

      I've seen a few ads saying that jailbreaking is legal, so I figure CFW should be as well, but I figured I'd ask those more knowledgeable than me.

      If i read it right, someone needs only to compile a backup manager with the latest 3.55 sdk with signing capabilities. Then simply install with this new custom firmware. Its not a matter of "Enabling" it, its a matter of devs writing a backup manager for 3.55

      You can install it but it won't work at all since syscalls aren't enabled. Without that you can't mount the game.

      Let me get this right, it does not allow you to play your owned backed up games? Isn't PS3 primarily a game machine allowing you to play PS3 games? The main benefit of JB PS3 for me is to play from the hard disk, am I missing something? I hope I am!

      not all, people are still working on npdrm

      Custom Firmware would be really nice if it came with AsbestOS or similar bootloader
      • AsbestOS( /dev/sda )
      • AsbestOS( /dev/sdb )
      • Sony XMB
      • MythTV
      • VLC
      • Optical Media Management
      and maybe some modification to the media player? Did anyone look into the media player yet?

      I just got one question... (I'm a noob to all this stuff) If I update from OFW 3.55 to CFW 3.55, will there be a risk to losing my PSN privileges? I really don't want to lose PSN, I know you can sign in to PSN now but knowing Sony, they'll eventually start banning people, can they see that the PS3 is different with the custom firmware? Can someone please answer this because I got the CFW sitting in my USB drive waiting to be installed on my PS3. The only thing that is holding me back from doing this is the risk of getting banned. Thanks in advance

      to all the ppl that is asking what firmware this is for read it propley cos it tells u if u too lazy to read the news of this witch i think u are other wize u wouldnt of missed it ,

      quote from the post
      The advantage here is that you can do it for any firmware, if you want to keep version 3.41, then give it the 3.41 update, if you are on 3.55 already and can�t downgrade, then run the script on the official 3.55 firmware and it will create a modified 3.55 firmware.

      so if u cant understand that nore read it how u gunna expect to make the firmware ya self , To me is tells me its for all firmware. you just mod the firmware u want . how hard was there to read .
      good work KaKaRoTo

      Yeah, so I skimmed these comments and I would like to state something

      1) If you are going to use this I recommend disabling your PS3 to your PSN since there is a very great chance of being banned
      2) (I haven't tested yet) But I'm pretty sure just going System Settings --> System update won't work if you are on 3.55 since this is already 3.55

      To bypass this you can either enter Factory/Service mode and install, or just hold the power button for 3 beeps (until System turns off) then hold again until double beep and go 'System Update'.

      lmfao 1)i think most ppl want homebrew and psn so i dont think many ppl will do this , plus also this is one of the reason why we want cfw apart from no jb dongle to lanch homebrew

      2 ) it will update the normal way. this is what it says when i try to install it
      Update data of the same version as the current system software was found. Do you want to install the same version?

      Pointless unless you know how to sign pkg files to run from the harddrive (ie NON firmware pkgs). All tools currently out do not allow signing of pkg files that contain sub directories.

      Shame really that the scene is turning into a e-penis competition, instead of actually releasing proper firmware that has a proper proof of concept, as in a pkg file to install, people jump at the chance of going *FIRST*.... (You know the annoying trolls you get on forum posts when they're the first poster)

      I could have released this custom firmware a couple of days ago, but decided it was pointless to the average end user (Because anybody with write access to dev_flash can very easily patch the vsh/module/xmb/explore/category_game.xml file) and was working on getting pkg's signed properly.

      As far as I am aware backwards engineering a console is not illegal even in USA cracking a console therefore is also not illegal,

      But enabling people to play or reproduce copyrighted code is illegal in 99% of countries by creating or distributing fully compiled software.

      Custom firmware imho skims the line of on the legal side as long as the custom firmware it's self does not include said software. even if the cfw enables said software to be run.

      Actually, I was running OFW 3.55 and I was able to update to CFW 3.55, I hacked it, I was too excited to not do it, but yeah, it works on a OFW 3.55.


      I need help with the CFW, what directories do I have to make for the PS3 to recognize the .PKG files? I put some .PKG files on my USB but it doesn't show up, so I need to create the necessary folders for it to show up on my PS3, so please someone let me know what they are.

      Also I've heard that you can return back to OFW 3.55 by going into recovery mode and putting the OFW 3.55 on a USB and have it install.

      This CFW can only install 3.55 signed pkg's, there arent any out there at the moment but will be soon
      once you have some jam them on the root of any fat32 formatted usb stick/hard drive, and you should see them when you select the 'install package' option

      Does this CFW provide anything or is it just a proof of concept. BTw I'm glad I waited for this, didn't want to get inviolved with the jailbreak crap, deep down I know someone would crack the encryption.

      Assuming youve done a very simplistic hello world, one with a code so basic it will run on every FW released and yet to be released. As it stands now, it wont wun in this CFW.

      Q1: Will just sign it make it runnable on this?
      Q2: Which tools are out there to this effect?

      This is great news, although I've never been the type for patience. Think i can make an exception this time. Im curious about one thing, with this can we get to PSN from any cfw, atm im running 3.50, and didn't want to update to 3.55, so if i get cfw 3.50 can i connect to PSN, or should i now just upgrade to 3.55. i really dont feel like getting bricked or banned on my brand new $600 ps3 though.

      A1: Yes, signing the simple application will make it run on any FW (You just need the 'custom' firmware to install it)
      A2: There is a tool in the FailOverflow toolset, but it is incomplete at the moment. Once it is fixed, then Developers will be able to sign their homebrew and release it for people to install on this FW.

      I'm a newb but this is all very exciting (and overwhelming). Custom Firmware should be a gamechanger!

      What I'm wondering is when (rough time frame) will users be able to play back ups or even pirated games without jailbreaking/being banned from PSN (regardless of with or without CFW)?

      Hi

      I am new to all this, allthough I did have my PS3 hacked untill Gran Tourismo came out then I sacrificed the jailbreak for the game..

      What I am wondering is

      Can I just run this CFW from the PS3 as if it was a OFW, or does it need to be in Engineer mode first?

      Thanks

      PS keep up the great work

      Give it time for the creators of backup managers to re release their apps as Official Signed .pkg's. Which is most likely as others are saying, a couple of days.

      This is an interesting question I am in the same boat, all games ripped to internal. I'm assuming that all content will be formatted when you update firmware.

      WE DONT condone piracy . if thats what u do please do not use this website and join another website , this website is about legal home brew. We dont play or talk about piracy games or any other illegal actvites

      I understand, I'm more curious about back up games and other things like wide support of codecs, subtitles and other video player features. I just mentioned piracy because it's virtually inevitable. Just wondering about a time frame.

      even if it is or not inevitable we dont wanna know , as for the timeline well how long is a piece of string , noone knows how long .its all when the devs decides to make it and release it . could be anytime . just sit down and hold tight, it wil be here when it comes

      Kakaroto said the kernel needs changing to allow syscalls (which is what the backup loaders use to redirect to the games on your hard drives) and kakaroto does not condone piracy therefore he hasnt changed the kernel to do this. Someone else will have to create a cfw with the kernel changes to allow homebrew to make syscalls.
      The scene is moving very fast since the usb master keys etc were released, though saying that even since psgroove came out theres been something new every day.

      no one knows like i said before when the devs make it , they do have lifes you know , they dont just sit at the computer rushing to make stuff for u , once they do make it they wont release it right away cos it will need to be check over and over gain to get rid of the bugs , overflow said they wil be releasing all tools in janaury and guess what janaury not finished yet , and that still dont mean it more tools will be relesed this month ,

      lol honesstly it could be any of those - not only does it depend on developers ability but also on their moral standing (i.e. this needs to be done by a talented developer who supports loading backups)
      It will happen very soon no doubt, especially if the likes of the psjailbreak team (who hold no moral high ground and are more like a business) use the available tools to make something

      on 3.55 this doesn't seem to work from xmb, so I guess I need to go to recovery menu and update from there?

      Anyone confirmed if you can go back to official firmware via recovery menu and update from there?

      Can you use cfw compiled from usa fw update, if you've EU ps3?

      Probably going to wait for better cfw, but it's always fun to know stuff.

      Yes I assume you are currently on 3.55 official firmware so that you can play online. Just use the download for the 3.55 CFW and install it on your ps3. Exactly the same as normal 3.55 FW except with ability to install pkgs from USB. As of yet there are no public homebrew pkgs that will work (have to be signed). We will have them within the next day or two though

      Just a quick one, feel free to answer if you know
      As we have keys, and now CFW, can we copy our original games (the ones that are small enough) to DVD9 discs and sign them so they play as if they were Bluray discs ? If im miles off and this is out of the question then fair enough, but i think it would be a nice feature as there are quite a few titles that are less than 8.5gb as far as im aware. Thanks in advance

      Hi Guys,

      I want to install the CFW but would i then need to download all of my PSN bought games again? if so i'm afraid 2 get a ban, because I worked my ass of getting all of my trophies...

      will my psn downloaded content still be on my PS3 after installing the CFW? or do I have 2 download it all over again?

      and i guess if i install the CFW that over time my trophie index is worthless anyway, because Sony will probably find a way to detect the custom firmwares when u go online... and u will need to stay offline

      or am i totally wrong?
      or maybe i'm just a noob

      (Piracy sucks ass, just buy a game if u like it!)

      I would imagine that it will work because thats already possible with the 3.41 jailbreak method and this will be far more advanced when its fully implemented.

      try doing the update through recovery.

      nothing connected to your ps3 via usb.

      hold down power button,keep it held. ps3 will turn on and off.

      repeat again,and you get 3 beeps.

      and make sure update file is setup like below

      usb storage------ps3------update-------PS3UPDAT.PUP

      give a whirl, and post results

      I hope that when a true dongle-less CFW comes out either it retains OOS or a 3.15 version is released.

      Installed all the way up to 70% but then just put me back to XMB all the same. No install package files menu there.

      Just download the pre compile PUP file which has been very kindly supplied, and install it like anyother update. Put it on Fat 32 USB stick. Inside PS3 folder and then UPDATE folder. Plug into console go to update from storage media.

      Blam.

      Yes piracy is a virtue.....nothing is ever good for you people you want it all; and you wanted it handed on golden plate.

      For all the new people first read the whole thing and also if you don't understand something google it first and then ask for help here. Try to speak English so you don't look like a mindless 12 yearold even if you happen to be one.

      Okay guys, ive downloaded the pup from the first post and already installed.
      While installing the percentage jumped from 71% to 100% and it was done.

      Now this 2 menus are on my ps3, it works, but there are some menus gone, like trophys, savedata, game packages! I thing thr person who compiled this, did not everything right. So for now its woriking but have some bugs, like i meantioned allready. AND YOU GOT PSN ACCES on 3.55, BUT YOU CANT RUN HOMEBREWS OR COPIED GAMES, so just wait for more updates of this

      PS: Im not english so forgive me for my bad endlish

      UPDATE 2:



      Greg over at PS3-Hacks.com has created a compiled copy for us to enjoy with the newest updates of KaKaRoTo (fixed missing XMBs and PS1/PS2 support for compatible models):

      Quick rundown on how to install this (same as a normal firmware) - you may have to access PS3 reovery mode to install CFW. This is how you would go back to your ORIGINAL PS3 firmware too:
      Depending on your situation you may need to install the CFW PUP from the PS3 Recovery Menu. To do that, follow these steps:

      1. Ensure the PS3UPDAT.PUP is in /PS3/UPDATE/ on your USB device.
      2. Power down the PS3.
      3. Now press and hold the power button, the system will startup and shutdown again.
      4. Release the power button, then press & hold power again, you?ll hear one beep followed by two consecutive beeps.
      5. Release power then follow the on-screen instructions. You?re now in the recovery menu.
      6. Connect the USB device and select ?System Update.?
      7. Hope for the best.

      i'm on 3.55 60 gig launch unit, i use a sd card but the ps3 won't see it after i put the update in all the correct folders on it, i had to use safe mode in order for my ps3 to see it and it still wouldn't see the very first Kakarotok mfw package (i think because i didn't change the file name), i just got the newest (but still the same) mfw with the correct title, i entered safe mode and now the ps3 will see my sd card and the update. i shut the machine off when it started to download the update before it was completed.

      SUCCESS though in finding the sd card!
      great work and great job to all who toiled away to make this happen. very soon signed packages will be ready and the limitations are gone!

      soon people will start compiling the apps that were running on 3.41 fw (people jailbroke so they could run unsigned .pkg files) now we can sign them so we can use the cfw to install signed .pkg's with a usb stick, such as FTP servers and backup manager i believe. There arent any .pkg's available so far that i am aware of. The apps have to be re-compiled (?) with the new 3.55 keys i think but i wouldn't be surprised if we had many of the 3.41 apps by the weekend.

      if any of this is wrong then please correct me as i am a noob to this as well :P

      I believe the kernel needs to be modified to support the system calls that things like multiman and others use, so just signing them isnt enough, someone soon I'm sure will come out with a custom 3.55 kernel to support this (and kiss having any fun on psn goodbye when people start cheating, which is inevitable until sony fixes (it if they can))

      Great job to all the people involved...ive recently acquired a ps3 with 3.42 but the wife updated for netflix to 3.50...although i didnt let her back on it past the fw 3.50 *luckly i have a xbox360 lol* so ill just wait it out for the official update of 3.50....looks like 3.55 and 3.41 are the only cfw's available...thanks again and will keep eye on the subject at hand...great work again guys...


      edit* Should i stay on 3.50 and wait or is it safe to update to 3.55 then Download the pre compile 3.55 cfw and run it that way or just stay at 3.50 fw to be safe?? thanks for the answered replys to my post in adv

      it depends what you want to do. If you want to downgrade back to 3.41 then stay on 3.50. Soon though it will be easier to do what you can do on 3.41 (jailbreak-run unsigned code) on 3.55, with the bonus that you can play on psn.

      I would upgrade unless you don't care about playing online, 3.50 can do everything else that 3.55 can do, in which case you could wait untill everything you want to do is possible on 3.55.

      Is it just me or were we told that we wouldn't need custom firmware to run homebrew?

      If we were to sign into PSN I'm sure sony will have a check to see if we are running CFW and therefore ban you. It just seems more practical to run homebrew on OFW if possible.

      i agree with junkbox but i do got to say junkbox that if we use cfw also we will gain more of options.

      homebrew is a great source to us all of the sony scene.

      but for me i love custom firmware it means alot to me. but if someone makes a custom firmware i think its best if theres always a recovery option like the psp cfw has.

      but know this ok this is just the begining of the greatest thing that has and will happen for the ps3.

      so with that said i have to say i thank all of you devs and people with ideas for the ps3 scene.

      keep up the great work...

      So then the best thing to do is update to 3.55 officially then run the cfw pre compiled for the 3.55 for dl? I do care of online but updating ---->>>> your saying to update to 3.55 is gonna be the best thing as psn is available if i update and then run the cfw *pup* update as shown...thanks again as i havent been around long and sound like a noob..im interested more on the side of ubuntu and wanting to delve in if possible if i update online to 3.55 like formed above in my statement...thanks again in adv at any responses to my post

      Very excited, but still very confused and not sure what I'm going to do.

      Right now I have two ps3s that have never been jailbroke, one of which has never been online. I have a bunch of games on an external that were ripped on my old jailbroke 60gb.

      One system will remain untouched, the other for homebrew. I have one system on 2.43, not sure how far I want to update it. Should I stay on 3.15 for Linux.. which I never used. Or go to 3.41??

      I have just read the BBC News article about all this new root key ma-larky and have been trying to keep up with scene in terms of what is happening next. But I keep on seeing a common saying from egoHot, KaKaRoTo, fail0verflow and the rest in regards to our old friend "piracy"

      I must have read about a million times, a thousand posts on how piracy is bad and how it is not condoned.. and I for one really don't care. Download your games, Buy your games its completely up to you. Don't get me wrong I don't love or hate "pirates" but they are around and always be around.

      Because of this piracy non-sense, I really doubt there will be a backup manager anytime soon just incase one of the scene users use it to play a downloaded copy of mini-ninjas or sumthing. Which completely buggers me up who has the original games, made legal backups but can not play either because my BR drive is now completely shagged and because the "piracy crusaders" won't enable anything that could be used for illegal gaming.

      You are right. There is no point in arguing about piracy anymore. Its going to happen no matter what you try to do to prevent it. As i see it right now us legit people with backups are being screwed over by pirates. Everyone is so frantic about people hacking on PSN games and it ruining everything. Your taking it way out of proportion. People hack online on xbox and wii even today all the time and nobody cries about that. PC gaming is even worse since its incredibly easier. All i want to say is please don't disregard the backup manager. I just want to have my friends list back and play my ps3 games online. Right now they are just sitting on the shelf useless because i have a ****ty blu-ray drive.

      No, i don't see any reason to stick with 3.41. Updating will remove your ps3's jailbreaking capability but jailbreaking is now a thing of the past. So update to 3.55 and enjoy your last week or so of fair gaming before the noobs with their aimbot and "teleport to crosshairs" **** ruin psn.

      1) Update through internet to 3.55 from 3.50 fw currently
      2)Format a usb to FAT32 The create folders PS3>UPDATE>PS3UPDAT.PUP
      3)Plug usb in go to system settings update etc and the update should be found on the usb automattically?

      No, i don't see any reason to stick with 3.41. Updating will remove your ps3's jailbreaking capability but jailbreaking is now a thing of the past. So update to 3.55 and enjoy your last week or so of fair gaming before the noobs with their aimbot and "teleport to crosshairs" **** ruin psn.
      Its not going to ruin PSN. I doubt that many people even know how to hack online. Plus there's more to ps3 than just fps.

      to be quite honest there is a lot of people on ps3 that do these such hacks...now that open signing has become now available to public they can now just go onlne with the backups as thats how they do it with modified files within the game and hack online...that part im sure the games OWN developers will take care of...although i do want to PLAY the LEGIT back ups i do have.

      I must have read about a million times, a thousand posts on how piracy is bad and how it is not condoned.. and I for one really don't care. Download your games, Buy your games its completely up to you. Don't get me wrong I don't love or hate "pirates" but they are around and always be around.

      Because of this piracy non-sense, I really doubt there will be a backup manager anytime soon just incase one of the scene users use it to play a downloaded copy of mini-ninjas or sumthing. Which completely buggers me up who has the original games, made legal backups but can not play either because my BR drive is now completely shagged and because the "piracy crusaders" won't enable anything that could be used for illegal gaming.
      People may claim to be in it only for Homebrew, but there are plenty of Devs out there that condone Piracy. Most consoles have been hacked to allow piracy. Some of the Ps3 devs are acting holier than thou. I have no problem with Piracy, its a personal decision. If pirate a game, try it, if you like it buy it. If not delete the damn thing, I have been burned by buying plenty of movies, music and games that turned out to be shyte as soon as I took off the shrinkwrap, and could no longer return it.

      Tried to install psn game from memstick. Installed fine, but asks to renew license in playstation store when trying to launch it.

      not very suprising info, but didn't find any info about this anywhere so i needed to try myself.

      Probably still no homebrew to try with this?

      I agree with your thinking it should be fair to test something out before you potentially purchase it with your money. iv been in your same position with buying crappy games.

      Also a quick question to people using cfw3.55, if you had games installed from the psn store on your hdd will they play on the cfw or will they get deleted/blocked?

      I'm trying to understand how to sign my pkg file.
      I compiled it using ps1light sdk, with make pkg to create pkg file..
      Looking latest news on ps3tools github it seems that pkg can sign pkg file.
      How do I do that? i tried with pkg retail mypkg.pkg signedpkg.pkg but it won't work.. I neither succeed to unpack a pkg file (every try ends with
      ./unpkg everypkgitried.pkg unpack/
      no .pkg file

      Any help?

      this adds no real functionality over what is currently available and can potentially damage consoles it is installed on. Wait for someone who knows what they are doing to release custom firmware.

      reports of user�s Trophies have gone and would not reappear, the save data has gone, along with the data utilities - �Pretty much everything under the �Game� category�.

      So far this can only be used as a normal firmware update, you can do all things like a normal console but with added functionality as to install pkgs. But can not be used (as of now) to boot backups or FTP functionality. Is this correct? Just want to make sure I get all of the added "functionality" before upgrading.

      Correct. This "custom firmware" merely adds a permanent homebrew installer in the xmb. As you stated however until developers released updated versions of their programs signed for 3.55, you can not install or play any homebrew.

      i have the new update ready to install, but i'm gonna wait and ride out this storm until its worth installing. right now as it stands, i think its still just a proof of concept with no real benefits for me.

      don't care too much about backups or piracy. i just want full control over my ps3, my yellow dog back and a saturn emulator so i can once again enjoy my panzer dragoon saga.

      and Tcraw, warhawk is the greatest online only ps3 game ever! that game does online and dlc perfect!

      well it's stupid I agree. How does adding kernel access support piracy? Heck, how does developing a backup manager support piracy? They are just tools. If they are willing to be that noble, how about not hacking the PS3 at all.

      u cant install home brew apps yet as they are not signed and if sony put new keys in ps3 then any game that was made before the new keys would not work no more so look like they cant do that ,

      they can do the new key update, but ony for games not yet out. if they were to change the keys for every ps3 game, psn game, ect out already, every game, demo would have to be updated and not only that, but with the update and new keys, no one could even get into their games to update them as the keys are now changed but the locks are the same.

      you can't change the locks if the keys don't fit, you'll be stuck on the outside with no way in to change them via game update as the system won't allow you to boot the game.

      this is what i think anyhow, if i'm wrong, correct it.

      well, that was a redundant reply on my part but i should make sense.

When I up grade will cfw3.55 allow me to play my backup games, when the open manager or backup manager releases on cfw 3.55. U understand?

      Yea, thats what I think will happen, we will find out how to format our drives using sonys FS. I really dont think there is an easy or economical way to make NTFS work cross platform.

      games with FILES that are OVER 4gb can only be played on internal. If a game is 100 gigs, but none of the individual FILES are over 4GB, it can be played on a FAT32 drive.

      There are file splitters out there which split any files over 4gb so you can stick it on your fat32 hard drives - i use ComgenieAwesomeFilesplitter it works great, it searches through your chosen ps3 game and splits the large files automatically into files 1GB parts then deletes the orignal large files (leaving the split ones of course lol) and the backup managers support split files (I use Gaia manager I know that definately supports split files at least lol)

      The GAMES themselves on the external hard drive can be as large as anything (i've run God Of War III off external hard drive and its 40GB) as long as no single FILE within the games folders is over 4gb - but even if there are files larger than 4gb they can be split using a file splitter (see my post earlier)

      CFW works fine and you can install signed PKGs!
      Just tried out with some demo�s and now I will install Beta�s like Killzone 3, LBP 2! Find PKGs linkes on your own! I dont give you any links! I just confirm that this CFW works, and dont have any bugs, for now!

      The 3.55 is a Modified Firmware not a CFW! .. If people haven't read from the thousands of other posts. All this does is give you the "Install Packages" & PS3_GAME options you would find under 3.41 Jailbreak.. but does have a couple of differences. Firstly you don't need a donge with 3.55 and Secondly with 3.55 unfortunately you can't do anything really with it, no homebrew as of yet, no backup manager yet and they may not come for some time. Honestly if your still on it, keep with 3.41 for now.

      Maybe someone can help me here I have a P3GO i was originally on 3.41 using gaia manager and everything worked fine i have now installed the 3.55 CFW thinking i could still boot with my P3GO to use gaia manager but when i try to boot it by pressing power then eject like usual it does not go into jailbreak mode and i cannot boot gaia manager. I thought you could still play backups on the 3.55 CFW as long as you have a dongle. Thanks in advance.

      Also if this will not work is it possible for me to go back to 3.41 CFW or am i screwed now until a 3.55 signed backup manager comes out?

      No, it has been said many many times that the sole purpose if this release is to allow consoles to install signed packages.

      Nowhere did it say you could run Gaia or any other homebrew

      You cannot downgrade
      You cannot jailbreak
      You need to wait until signing apps and packages has been perfected but I don't expect backups to be working for quite some time

      Please everybody, read the whole post/thread/readme BEFORE installing/flashing anything.

      This sucks I was reading the thread for this over on ps3-hacks and someone stated they were able to run gaia using their dongle after installing the cfw so i thought it was ok since i have the p3go oh well there goes backups for now i am sure it wont take long for someone to come out with a signed downgrader. Thanks for the help.

      It's written that you can "jump" from any firmware to a modified firmware, so you can downgrade from 3.55cfw to 3.41cfw.

      LMAO, everybody was flaming me yesterday on IRC and what do I see?
      => There is no other way to run homebrew apps than JB
      Nevermind...

      BTW, i cant see the use of a MFM 3.41.
      This is even more useless than the MFM 3.55
      Not only cant you run signed code (since as off today you cannot go past the DRM pb), but why would you install this if you still need jailbreaking?
      Personaly, having on the XMB two newer menus that i cant use... is definitly useless.

      Your screwed, sorry. Once you updated you didn't need the dongle anymore. The Modified FW release will allow you to install homebrew *but as of now there isn't any but be patient it will come. Now from what i understand to play backup games there is a lvl that needs to be hacked on the 3.55 firmware. For the time being this will NOT be done, geohot has now intention of doing this, fail0verlord do not want anything to so with this either. It may come one day but don't hold your breathe for anytime really soon. Unfortunately you also have another drawback, you can not downgrade the 3.55 so your stuck with it. Your just gonna have to play your original discs and download some demos from the PSN if you wanna play anything new.

      Isnt it possible to make a, say 3.56 PUP, with a genuine 3.41 OFW ?

      That would be incredible thank you so much for the suggestion I was unaware of the 3.56 pup hopefully this can be accomplished unfortunately I just got to work so will have to try later if this cannot be don't then my 3.55CFW is going to gamestop and I will buy another with 3.41 or under used. Thanks.

      Just incase people get worried after reading this, there is no hacking or anything to be figured to get the backup managers working so its not as if it is currently not possible on 3.55. It is just that Kakaroto did not want to implement the syscals that the backup managers utilise to make booting possible. The only think that need to be done is for a CFW with the modded syscals and then they will be able to boot games.

      As for timings no clue just that last post made it seem ominous talking of further hacking needed to allow it.

      No, I was saying that this is useful

      If you have a jailbroken console, you have no need whatsoever for this, this fw was not made for you, forget it and move on.

      If you have no Jb this IS made for you.
      It is the only way you will be able to install homebrew files on virgin consoles. How else would you get the pkg to install?

      Cant upgrade with a fake 3.56 that would be indeed a real 3.41 OFW?
      I cant see why this wouldnt work.
      We have all the tools needed to install from USB a PUP containing 3.41, havent we?

      Modifying the files within a pup carries a high risk of permanently bricking your ps3 with no hope of recovery unless you have a NAND flasher.

      People have been trying to modify pups to trick into downgrading but as far as I know, last night saw a few RSOD results from just that.

      Like I said, don't use this unless you have no jb, and still wait until we have signed apps.

      Implementing the patches needed to run unsigned code into the firmware is dangerous and a waste of time when signing is on it's way.
      There are still hurdles to pass but we need to be patient.

      Actually for you to return back to OFW 3.55, you don't need to go into recovery menu, I was able to return from CFW 3.55 to OFW 3.55 via XMB, it just asks you if you want to install the same version, just select yes and presto! You'll be running OFW 3.55 again

      I commented because I wanted to know why he needed it packed so badly. An i am not one of the 85 percent waiting for this ftp to be packed.

      when Sony releases a new firmware update, i wonder if they would block installing firmware upgrades from a usb device and if that would help them to stop CFW installs?

      yae, i would wait and am waiting as well.

      as much as i want to scream gimme the beef now dammit! i can't because i'm not doing anything to help further progression in this field. but i've had a ps3 since launch with no homebrew, gone this long right?

      it don't really matter if i never get it, i still have tons of fun without it and have made tons of friends without as well too. homebrew is just an extra layer of icing on the cake. just as linux was before it was taken away. i'll survive with or without.

      patience is a virtue. if you don't have it, it'll always waiting for for you.

      What does it mean does not play backups? Is it saying Open Manager doesn't work? And why would we want this if all it does...is allow pkg installing? This means nothing to me. When they come out with a "real" cfw then maybe I'll be more excited. It's nice they made it so people won't need the annoying usb dongles. But that's about it. And since Sony is working against us I'm afraid the work they are doing on this may be put on hold. x.x

      new CFW does not play backups because none of the backup managers are signed to work with fw3.55 which the new CFW is based on. This has been asked and answered hundreds of times.

      i'd give it a week or the end of this week. alot of devs are really hard at work to make sense of all the new tools at their disposal and nothing will happen overnight.

      i think most of the people who installed the mfw are idiots right now to install a proof of concept with, at the moment, zero capabilities to use any of it except to get on the psn, which most could do anyway if they were already on 3.55.
      i'm not saying its not good to have it, hell, i have it, but i don't have it installed.

      has anyone tried that signed package geohotz created the other day on this firmware? i know it doesn't do anything other than a poc but it is signed and should load, correct?

      I hope that the devs can make a full cfw with the following features:
      1- full hombrew, backup mangers and games support
      2- PSN and DLC support
      3- ps1 and ps2 full backward backup support for all ps3 models (even the ps3s that has no backward compatibility)

      SO I've got a Brand New Virgin 60GB launch w/hard backward compatibility:aetsch: Sony charged me $179 for it back in Feb. when my original 2007 PS3 that had blu/ray replaced for $156 went YLOD (tried fixing myself & made it FUBAR/DEAD/BEYONDFUBARDEAD) been saving it for a rainy day (so to speak, looks like the time might soon be at hand)

      Yeah, I have a 60 GB... it feels weird to say that when you might not have 60 GB hard drive, I do, but still. Anyway, so let me get this completely straight, this gives the ability to install homebrew applications without the USB dongle as long as the .pkg file is signed?

      Be that as it may, since there are no homebrew applications that are signed, and you installed the CFW 3.55, can you still use the USB dongle to run homebrew applications until a week from now when signed .pkg files are released?

      Running homebrew applications requires a jailbroken PS3 (for now that is).
      I might be wrong, but please correct me those who know that I am incorrect.
      Also, jailbraking a PS3 requires CFW/FW3.41 or lower. You are right now in CFW 3.55, which is not jailbrakable.

      So from my knowledge, I don't think you can run homebrew games with your USB dongle.

      No I'm not running firmware 3.55, I'm running 3.41, I was just wondering that if I installed the CFW of 3.55, would I be able to jailbreak it, because it's a CFW. Considering that all the CFW does so far is put the PKG install things on the Game tab, I wouldn't think it'd be jailbreakable myself, I was just curious.

      no you would not be able to jailbreak it, the problem is people mixing things, the jailbreak we have on 3.41 and lower firmwares is one thing, the custom firmware that will allow us to install signed files is another.

      Yeah, that's pretty much what I figured, I'm being very cautious with this, because hackers do make mistakes at times. My USB drive is loaded to install the CFW once it's confirmed that signed PKG files work, which I don't think there has been confirmation.

      no signed pkg have been made, but if you install a demo from ps stor they will work. the point is custom firmware is the future, not the present, if you have a 3.55 only your best option to mess arround would be installing that custom firmware which doesn't do much yet, if you do have a 3.41 system just stick with it cause its still the best option for now.

      I wish people would learn to read, it has been said in this thread over and over again that backups with this "custom" firmware are not possible yet, but every other post is some one asking how to play backups on 3.55:musicus:

      Just imagine this CFW is OFW with only some additional apps (that are currently un-usable).
