120w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer RazorX has released a PS3 3.70 Spoof TCL Mod and Tasks for PS3MFW Builder to allow Modified Firmware users to change PS3 XML and RCO files alongside some ready-made PS3Ultimate CFW versions below and a PS3Ultimate Store Channel release from PsDev.
When using the spoof, your PS3 will display the following prompt: "The latest version of the system software is already installed. There is no need to update."
To quote: This does not mean that you can use this to sign into to PSN. All that this basically does is allow you to not have to worry about your console being accidentally updated. NO PSN! I've now got a 3.70 spoof tcl that is 3.70 51968 001:CEX-ww
RazorX also releases two other tasks he created for use with PS3MFW Builder, Change XML Files, and Change RCO Files.
Currently, there are three different versions: 3.66 Spoofed, 3.70 Spoofed, and 3.55 Unspoofed. NOTE: With the versions that come SPOOFED, the only way to revert back to another FW is though Recovery Menu.
This is a 3.55 CFW Ive just finished creating with PS3MFW Builder. It is setup in a way I think everyone will like, here is some of the options I set:
Patched Lv1 Hypervisor
Patched Lv2 Kernel
Patched Package Installer
Patched all self/sprx to secure privacy
Patched application launcher
Added homebrew category
Added Start Game (Disc-less) to game category (/app_home/PS3_GAME/)
Cleaned unwanted items from XMB
Replaced some RCO files
Replaced some XML files
Changed cinavia DRM affected files
Changed default theme
Spoofed to 3.70 (3.70 51968 001:CEX-ww)
After you install this CFW, go straight into theme settings and apply the default theme. I would also like to say I'd be very happy to receive any help. That is going to really improve this CFW further. I have been trying to change the icons on the ingame XMB and the main XMB, to set it up were I don't need the theme.
But, I have had little success so far, so any help would be appreciated. I have put the "Start Game (Disc-less)" in games, and the "Install Packages" in debug. In the future I'd very much like to also have the debug settings in there, so if anyone can do this let me know..
To do this firmware I had to create my own tcl files, so I have included them too. Ive also included some altered pkg files for you to try, and by altered I mean the categories changed, and images slightly altered. So enjoy...
Updates: This cfw has been updated with a 3.70 spoof and i have just installed it and it does now say version 3.70 so if you have installed the previous cfw with the 3.66 spoof just install this straight over the top of it from the recovery menu..
For all you who want unspoofed versions here you go i've also added a spoof_version.tcl for 3.70.
I've just created a larger theme for my cfw it now has 16 different backgrounds in HD and SD i hope you all like it
And for all of you who want something different and know what to do with rco files i've just created a black theme which i think is fantastic i created every icon but you cant change the psn icon with a theme as far as i know so ive included the rco file to change it, ive also included the normal one to switch back its only 1 rco so its not difficult and let me know what you think so i can use that in a future release thanks..
1. Format USB device FAT32
2. Place PS3UPDAT.PUP in x:/PS3/UPDATE
3. Install via XMB
NOTE: If you are not on OFW 3.55, please download and install that first, the same way you would install NFW. You can find OFW 3.55 here.
How to add the channel:
Place the folder called xil in this directory "/Dev_hdd0/tmp/explore
The channel will end up in the Tv Section

I remember a similar app named PS3 Channels Creator. You would have to make your own XML file and it would appear in the "TV" tab in the XMB. You would have to enter the website though and it would just take you there on the PS3. Good to see RazorX still contributing to the scene.
