Fix TAR v3 PS3 Homebrew App for Retail and Debug 4.0 Firmware

Sponsored Links
157w 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.

Ok, but nathans latest is still better isn't it so not so great really your fixed version, everyone should use nathnas for now I thinks.

EDIT: its not a race, why not just let one dev do it, nathan seems to know what hes talking about.

np just wanted to know if the peoples have recognized the update version.

I'll write a gui version for better handling and will also include the pkg and dev_flash version of fix_tar from nathanr3269.

But maybe he will do the same and beat me this time.

You're right, cfwprophet, I saw the download link only now. I thinked it included only the image you posted, LOL instead it contains the fixed versions of your previous release. So you fixed it before nathanr3269, I would like to thank you also if maybe I'm a little late.

Does even one of the members here have recognized that i have posted a fixed version with also permission patch before nathan has posted his version with permission patch ?

And my release also contain fix_tar's for debug's, retail 3.41, retail 3.5+>> and the new debug's + OFW 4.0

ok. nice, thankyou for explaining that risk to us as was not sure if it was only CoreOS pkg that was super risky or if this touched that, thank you.

Fix_tar doesn't cause brick, is highly dangerous with core_os pkg (this don't use fix_tar), but others if something is wrong, PS3 cancels the installation.

Thanks nathan for the fixed version. +rep

Ezio: I asked could the previous buggy version cause a brick, i mean if a pup was made and installed with the buggy version, could that pup cause a brick?

People have been making pups for 4.00 since before this was released so.. When making windows apps to mess with FW pkgs i think it must be done 100% right, releasing buggy versions that are not tested enough just isn't good enough, -rep cfwprophet, +rep nathan
