97w ago - Sorry for being quiet the last few days guys, but I'm still working on things for AC1D CFW and also found some changes to newer PUPs so I have modded the source of KaKaRoToKS Fix_TAR to reflect this in the Fix TAR v3 PS3 homebrew application for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware.
Also what Mathieulh has stated about the 3.55 / 3.56 tar owner id, owner and group is simply BS. It hasn't changed up to 3.72. Debug tar's have diff info but on 4.0 Retail/Debug it's the same.
There for i fixed the original source of fix_tar (owner id from 0001752 back to 0000644), modded a fix_tar_debug and modded a new fix_tar_v3 which also works on retail and debug fw.
fix_tar = retail fw up to 3.72
fix_tar_debug = debug fw up to 3.72(?)
fix_tar_v3 = retail and debug fw 4.0
Have Fun -cfwprpht-

1. It isn't right. The first version of nathanr3269's fix_tar had the same bug (I don't like to call it as bug, simply the permissions missed on the original source code) of the cfwprophet version, I explained both cfwprophet and nathanr3269 via pm what was missing since I worked on the same thing few days ago.
2. Both cfwprophet and nathanr3269 are very good developers, so they don't deserve any offence, but only respect from community.
3. This tool is only useful to the developers, so please you don't complain about it.
Yesterday I tested fix_tar by cfwprophet and it works perfectly.
They are both the same and by they way in case of its not a race, i agree but this thread would be started of me so why not let it do by me ? Also please explain why he knows what he talk and i'm not ?
nathanr3269 No offence meant to you mate Great work and thx for the info about pkg and dev_flash.tar
