i'm still on 3.55 and my friend gave me his ps3 to upgrade it on 4.30 .. i personally tested everything this tool has to offer...
i'm pleased to say that everything works perfectly... tried running 3.55 HB on 4.30 at 1st and it gave me error but after resigning them with this tool, it worked perfectly and same with the Disk and PSN game eboots... and vise-versa
but it seems some games cant be fixed for 3.55 using this tool (Black Screen + freeze) they need Special Fixz...
PS3 CFW EBOOT Resigner Homebrew App By RaxorX is Released
Today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer RazorX has released PS3 CFW EBOOT Resigner v1.01 followed by v1.03 and v1.05 which is an x86 / x64 application for updating 3.55 and 3.41 CFW game files for use on 4.XX CFW.
To quote: Hey guys i got a very simple very noob proof app for you i've put together, very simply all you do is put an EBOOT.BIN into the same folder as the app then launch it and you can select from:
and then choose either:
Then the app will do the rest very simple very easy very fast and an all-in-one application however it will require you to install 7-Zip, i was going to include it into the app but then my virus scanner thinks it's a virus and deletes it because it's stupid so just install 7-Zip and your golden.
Update: I've just updated my app to v1.01 now it will retrieve the content id from the eboot and ask you if it's correct if it is enter "y" for yes and it will use it, if you enter "n" it will then ask you to enter a content id in which case you can enter whatever you want then hit enter and it will use that.
Update 2: Added a x86 and a x64 version to the zip file.
Update 3: Added the ability to patch pkg files and Added 7zip built in so you no longer need to install it
Update 4: Updated pkg section, now you can repack games/homebrew, gamedata, ps1 games & minis with the last 3 you will need to enter the contentid also you can now change the package version of any of the pkg options.
Update 5: Added contentid app and param.sfo editor app from aldostools (thank you aldostools) to allow you to find out the contentid from any pkg you gonna use and to allow full customization of the param.sfo file, all build in to this app and setup to automatically load the pkg or param your using.
Update 6: Updated pkg unpacking process so now it shouldnt have a problem unpacking anything the keys are out for. Updated script so now it no longer asks you for the version now it extracts the version directly from the PARAM.SFO.
Hint: If your having problems with the repacking of the pkg please check the contentid against the param.sfo i had problems repacking a pkg until i realized the titleid in the param.sfo did not match the titleid that is part of the contentid.

Version 1.10 Changelog:
Hey guys I've released v1.10 of my app this one is just a small update a few tweeks here and there i have also added FixELF for when resigning eboots to 3.60 and 4.20 you will be given the option of doing this so it's not something that will just happen so this may or may not fix any problems you may have with a resigned eboot but it's never 100% guaranteed but then what is hopefully it will help you i have also uploaded more pics for you so if your not familiar with this app you can see what it's all about.
For those of you who don't know what this is about it's all in the title of the app this is for unpacking, repacking pkg files and resigning eboots but it will also help you if all you want to do is alter a param.sfo in a pkg file or simply view the contentid of it here are some images for you.
Note: Please use the exit on the app rather than hitting the [X] so it can cleanup the temp files and prevent errors.
Version 1.11 Changelog:
updated repack pkg proccess to fix issue with packages that have large amounts of files such as PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX, now when creating a package file a new window pops up for the packing process don't close this or it will not create your package.
updated app to include more info so it's easier to understand and follow what it's doing every step of the way.
setup the app so when repacking games if it also contains the PARAM.SFO in C00 it will overwrite it with the PARAM.SFO in USRDIR after the step that allows you to alter it so if you do decide to alter the PARAM.SFO it will then be copied to C00 if it exists so you won't get a PARAM.SFO mismatch error when trying to repack the pkg file.
Version 1.12 Changelog:
added support for ps2 package files.
Version 1.13 Changelog:
updated the process for repacking ps2 package files.

when resigning an eboot it will automatically change the ps3 system version in the param.sfo if it exists in the root folder with the eboot.
when unpacking a mini, ps1 or ps2 game instead of having to then goto repack pkg it will do it automatically after you have unpacked it.
setup automatic retrieval of the title id from the content id itself so if the title id is wrong or you are doing a ps1 game were the title id is always different and prevents you from repacking it will automatically replace it for you so by the time you get to the info screen that tells you the games content id and title id for you to check it will have been changed to match the content id.

[Q] i really dont understand how to unpack a pkg
[A] all you do is put your pkg file in the same folder as my app then goto option 6 and then option 1 to unpack the pkg
[Q] how do you get content id?
[A] if the pkg file is a game/homebrew pkg file it will get it automatically and say is this your content id then you say yes but for the others you will have to enter it manually as far as getting that in the next version i will release tomorrow i will include an option in the package menu to boot up an app from aldostools that will tell you it then you just copy and paste it
[Q] how do you get package version?
[A] the package version is contained in the param.sfo but for the most part its 01.00 and even if its not and you set it to 01.00 nothing bad will happen it wont make any difference to the app
[Q] why there is a difference between ps1 games, homebrew, and data packages? how do i know what kind of package is mine?
[A] there is a difference because each package tells the ps3 what it is and how to deal with it and stuff as far as telling if you dont know what you pkg is then its probably not worth messing around with it till you learn more about pkgs and there functions etc
