121w 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

Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer RazorX has made available PS3Ultimate PS3 TV Application v1.02 followed by v1.03, v1.04, v1.06, v1.07, v1.08 and v1.09 allowing users to watch TV from the PlayStation 3 entertainment system using an XML file modification.
To quote: Hi all, today I've brought you my simple TV app for those of you who are sick of having no TV section now you will have with this app I've setup for you.
all you have to do is replace your category_tv.xml with the one i have provided in TV Section (TV) v1.01.zip
if you want it in your TV category or if you prefer it in your Video category just replace your category_video.xml with the one I provided in the TV Section (VIDEO) v1.01.zip but don't use both
you can replace your XML file by mounting your flash with a program or through multiman then replacing it
then install the PKG file and your done

Removed icons from this and future updates to prevent overwriting theme
Added "standard theme" so icons can be restored to normal
HFS aka HFS HTTP File Server will give you the ability to copy files to your PS3 and stream videos directly to your ps3 it also can be used for much more than this but this is what i use it for also with the modification. i have made you will be able to upload videos you have on your PS3 to your PC.
i have set everything up for you it should be a simple matter of loading. HFS up and adding your files to it you will also need to create a Upload folder on your pc and drag it over onto HFS and right click the folder and set it up as a upload directory so you can upload pictures and with my mod videos from your PS3 to your PC.
i've set the HFS website up as localhost if this doesnt work change localhost to your pc's ip address, for example change localhost to 192.168.0.2 and everything should work perfectly to make it easier for you to change the ip address ive set it up so it reads the website address from the root of your ps3's hdd so please put the hfs.xml in the root of your ps3's hdd so basically it should be put in /dev_hdd0/ this will allow you to easily remember were it is if you need to change the ip address.
Here are the files:
HFS XML File: http://www.sendspace.com/file/rlrae7
PS3Ultimate TV Video Bypass: http://www.sendspace.com/file/ho7m6t
The PS3Ultimate TV Video Bypass contains the dev_flash~vsh~resource~explore~xmb.zip which you install using multiman this will allow you to upload your videos from your PS3 to your PC.
With 1.09 I've updated most of the app from the themes to the movie links and movies. I've also added a links section to tidy the main section up. Ive also added new content including ps3 xil for those who want to use it to add custom channels and tidy up the ps3's main XMB or if your CFW has removed them, then they should be available again. I've also changed the update to a direct link but most of my time and effort has been focused on the movies section.
I decided to release this update a little sooner than I was going to, so remember I'm working on this everyday, so keep checking for updates but remember it can be a slow process and I'm working alone. So please be patient and if you have just installed this update remember to also download and install a theme so everything is up to date.
