To quote: Hey Everyone! Its me RedDot and im back with my team again to release you this new build of PS3MFW Builder 1.0.0!

We managed to find all the bugs about the repack/unpack/keys/tasks! Just follow them as respected and everything WILL be fine.

This is TRULY stable, and if you patch the right features you will NOT get brick/or whatsoever... I also recommend you have a minimum requirement of knowledge on modding





I hope the video helped A LOT. Credits to all the dev's that made this project possible and finished supposedly. But of course we will maybe continue to add features if new updates are released! So keep an eye on that updater.

PS: updated oldfart-lv0 task to incl Rebug-ITA/DEX style... and Cobra compatible lv0 patching: pastie.org/8580065

Update: From RedDot-3ND7355: It would seem that i forgot to put create_tar2 instead of "create_tar" for the modify_devflash_files2 My bad.. there isn't any problem in the task itself... its in the base!

Now I updated the builder! Build: 0.2.0.2 now out.

From tiefputin2: From ps3dev channel on efnet, if someone can make a tcl:

It should make sfo editing for remote play obsolete... and make disc games without sfo-enabled remote play-attribute flag finally work

From toolboy2012: Hi All, OK, fixes are done for the tcl version of the 'patch_file{}' and 'patch_file_multi{}' routines (called by the "patch_elf{}" func)

....so as I was saying before, you can use the modified function as is, if you don't need to mask any bytes/bits off, and the speed will not be changed..if anything the way I fixed it up is a bit faster, as I read the entire file into memory, then do the data searches, as the routine as it was before, read in '1' byte at a time from the file, so the routine was constantly accessing the hard drive non-stop until the function completed....

So when calling 'patch_elf{}' now, you just need to set a local var named 'mask' to either 0 or "" if not using it, as it's a required param to the function. If you need to actually set a mask, then actually set the mask string to the mask value....

As I said, when using the 'mask', the search will be much much slower, not too bad on small files, but for large files like the 'lv2_kernel' (3MB), the search takes 3mins. or more for each pattern match...

So I'm going to show a quick example below, for those may be a bit confused how this works:

1) Going to show an example for the patch "SysCall36 4.xx CFW part 2/3" (as in my scripts, part 2/3 & 3/3 I used the MASK setup)

2) In this example, I'm showing you the IDA disassem. for this section of the 'lv2_kernel' where the part 2/3 & 3/3 patches are,
comparing the disassem. for OFW 3.55, 4.46, & 4.55...

3) at the very bottom of this example, you can see the 3 'search strings', of the op-code patterns corresponding to each OFW version... when you look at them lined up above each other, you can see the op-codes that are identical, and where the differences are...

4) You can then look at the last string which is the 'mask', the "\xFF" byte in the real search will be AND'd with it's corresponding op-code byte, so in other words, if you need to 'ignore' where the differences are, then set those bytes or individual bits, in the mask, to "0"... hopefully this makes sense? if not, I can try to post another example?

(like I said, I'm working on a new 'patchtool.exe' now, hopefull this week it will be done, which should tremendously speed up our binary 'patching' time, makes much more sense to search/patch with a tool, rather than doing all that pattern matching/searching in TCL, as this stuff is where TCL is tremendously slow!)

NOTE: When ever you need to USE a MASK, the size of the 'search' and 'mask patterns MUST be exact multiples
of 4-bytes (32-bits), in order to make that search as FAST as I could. So you have to count the bytes in any of your
search strings where you want to use the mask... if you need to add bytes on to make it an even amount, but don't actually want those added bytes to be 'included in the pattern match, then just make them any value, and set their corresponding values in the MASK to be '\x00'!!

i.e., in the example I showed above, the 'search' and 'mask' strings are 16-bytes in total length (ie 4 total count of '4-byte' chunks).

From haz367: whop, that's a pro way right there... it wasn't a difficult one, the updated 455 sysc36 part3,4 (from Reddot's fork) to find manually this time, it won't beat your way of doing it tho... hmm that IDA is interesting

Awesome work toolboy!

Finally, from haxxxen: Just another thanks to you guys and toolboy2012, for making builder working again. it really works smoothly though i am using a modified version without cos auto repack and with selfrebuilder. maybe i will get isorebuilder also working next...

If i can recall right, there was already a demand of it, but after this forced latest ofw release i've took the chance and created once again a rebug spoofer update task. it will only update the spoofer for rebug mode and it will work for all versions 3.55.4 - 4.46.1.

Only problem is, it will not work as it is for the updated official ps3mfw builder and gives this "cannot find blabla.self.self" error. with my builder mod and selfrebuilder it works great, so maybe you can take a look at it RedDot-3ND7355 to make it fully working with your updated one and scetool. i have run it on all rebug versions, but only have flashed 4.21.2, so no guarantee for the others, but they also should work fine.

The task itself makes usage of the updated jailbait spoof task from euss, so it will spoof every entry in version.txt/index.dat and it will not update upl.xml. all other notes are remarked in the task, so it is selfexplanatory. it only includes the latest 4.55 version and a fun spoof of mine and can easily be updated.

And here my log for 4.46.1 (debug enabled): [Register or Login to view links]

Just a minor note on this, if you modify version.txt file with ps3mfw builder, the encoding changes to dos instead of unix. it works fine this way, but maybe there is a possibility to leave the encoding unchanged? ahh, and please ignore this rebug mode drex version. i have left it and it is only for personal usage...

Found now the problem. seems rebug have confused some things in their latest builds 4.41 and 4.46 some different question, but anybody knows what this secrect On/Off option from sysinfo is? it was medo from cmp who told me about it some time ago, but he also didn't know what it does. to get it, go under settings into system-settings->systeminformation hold L1+L2+R1+R2 and press select. there comes a On/Off message and it is turned off after every reboot.

Update #2: PS3MFW Builder 1.0.0 (Build 0.2.2.0) Official Installer Release!

RedDot-3ND7355 and B7U3 C50SS are back to share the latest update for their PS3MFWBuilder (linked above). For those that don't recall, this tiny GUI allows users to build their own custom firmwares by ticking a few boxes.

As if the creation process wasn't simple enough, that ease now extends to the installation too. Build 0.2.2.0 now includes a well-designed Windows installer to walk new users through the process. The one curious omission not found in this update is the ability to create firmwares with the 4.60 payload.

However, the developers do say that a revision is on the way to solve that shortcoming. Unless you know what you're doing, this is the kind of app to use at your own risk. Even though the building procedure is noob-friendly, any modified firmware installation technically has the potential to brick your system.

Just for fun's sake, the PUPs you make cannot be used for downgrading and do not run on OFW above 3.55.

Update #3: Update 3 of the Install Our MFW Builder.exe (linked above). This time we've updated the PS3MFW Builder have automatic configuration for your data folder which holds the keys and your TEMP folder as well!!

So settings are auto-corrected via install FROM simply installing. This includes your TEMP and data folder as stated before. Happy Building!!

About PS3MFW Builder:

Description

For those that don't recall, this tiny GUI allows users to build their own custom firmwares by ticking a few boxes. As if the creation process wasn't simple enough, that ease now extends to the installation too. Build 0.2.2.0+ now includes a well-designed Windows installer to walk new users through the process.

Unless you know what you're doing, this is the kind of app to use at your own risk. Even though the building procedure is noob-friendly, any modified firmware installation technically has the potential to brick your system. The PUPs you make cannot be used for downgrading and do not run on OFW above 3.55.

Our Goal

Make people enjoy a better privacy from Sony, we do not support anti-piracy, tho the ps3 patches included in the tasks are capable of bypassing security to do so. I am truly sorry for that -Endless

Finally we had fixed and got MFW Builder 0.3 to work and made 0.3.1

Enjoy this fix and u can add our tasks from our git

Or even your owns...

MFW Tasks (Custom)

Here are our own MFW Tasks hand made! took patterns from the 4.xx features in mfw builder v3 pre-release! If any tasks dosen't work plz report back! And if your a programer that is good in this lik Glevand then plz join us! Thanks and Enjoy!

From haz367: Someone added new patterns from rogero 450, anyone noticed his spk_pkg_rvk_verifier.self?

See: pastie.org/private/fmyhucu4dfubypv40e8yza

ipf_toolbox_pkg.tcl
Description: [4.5x] Add Rogero's IPF Stealth MM Toolbox instead of [DEFAULT] app_home / install packages task ^!
pastie.org/private/fsx3xkihemqwdxoqxhegyg

Here's my work for the otheros and POC:

lv2

lv1

default.spp

From haxxxen: Just a small task (patch_game_plugin.zip linked above) to share.. it will remove the debug message "Quit Game: No Request Event" from DEX or REBUG firmwares (the info symbol won't be removed), still searching for fake save data owner message, but not very easy to find. It seems it is hardcoded somewhere else, but not in modules.

I have found now that fake save data owner message by browsing vsh strings... I have packed both tasks into one, so you can choose both options at same time and it seperates rebug and dex firmware. it is still in old format though, sorry RedDot the info symbols will remain on both patches for manual patching:

Finally, from haz367: lv2 fixed again. Note: at least 1 of the "updated" LV2-450 patterns (copied from rogero) is causing the GLOD, need to check it more!

Anyhow... we have a winner! 450-basic patched - PS3MFW 1.0.0.0 =

  • Install from any 4.xx = OK
  • Installs and boots fine...with basic patches all working

The tasks however could use a little sorting, but all this is easy enough to fix.. here's the log just in case...
