46w ago - Following up on his PSN / SEN Enabler and Disabler v4.31, PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Nathan_r32_69 (aka nathanr3269) has released a PS3 PUP's Syscon Changer v1.0 followed by v1.1 and v1.2 for those interested with details below.
To quote: Hi friends, i'm here again with a new tool to make it easy another task, this time to change PUP's syscon, for for example, install a lower PUP on higher firmware, like Downgrader PUPs does
USE IT WITH CAUTION - ONLY FOR CFW FOR NOW
Its to easy to use, only chose your PUP file, select syscon version and click on "Start", if all goes fine you will have a new file named "NEW-PS3UPDAT.PUP"
Hope you will find this tool useful and contact me if you see any issue, meanwhile i'll back to finish SEN Enabler v5.0 and other research
Finally, from Cyberskunk: Basicly this changes the firmware version in the info0 of the CORE_OS_PACKAGE.pkg so the PS3 thinks you are installing a higher CoreOS.. Same way the '999' Downgrader works.. And NO.. It will never downgrade 3.56+ OFW.. Ever!!
To do do this you would need to exploit the OFW and try to stop it from checking the spkg_hdr.1 files or return success (if you had an exploit like this you could do a hell of a lot more than just installing firmware)
OR Some disgruntled employee at Sony would need to leak the private key for spkg_hdr.1 files. This private key can no longer be calc'd and it is not, never has been nor will ever be in the firmware. Sorry to burst any bubbles of people thinking it will happen sometime soon..
New version v1.1 released: PUP file must be where you unpack the program
Fixed some issues while unpackin Core_OS and creating spkg files, must work fine now
Fixed all previous bugs
Added executable to install the variable of the keys

HeyManHRU: Thanks, it's the same one I have (minus all the trailing zeros) so I'm going to assume it still works. I'm also going to assume that Rebug has to be in normal when I install SEN Enabler. But before I go online should Rebug be in normal mode or Rebug mode? This is where I'm unsure.
I haven't tried it yet because, as you said, I don't want to get it banned so I want to make sure I do everything right the first time. Right now I'm on Rebug 4.30.2 REX spoofed to 4.41 with multiMAN 4.40.00 base, and I've been on PSN only once a few months ago when the firmware version was 4.41, so I'm not banned (*knocks wood*). This is my plan:
1. Update Rebug to 4.46.1 REX
2. Install multiMAN 4.46.01 base CEX STEALTH (Does it work with Rebug?)
3. Change Rebug mode to normal and install SEN Enabler
4. Change Rebug back to Rebug mode or leave it in normal mode? (This is where I'm confused)
5. Go online
I'm only gonna be online for about a half hour or so for a few days, so I'm hoping that if I do it right I don't get banned in that short time.
i installed the wrong one that was suppose to be for the 4.40 rogero on the 4.31 cex rogero and now when i open it it doesn't show anything tried to do the safe mode and try to restore settings etc or to press system update or anything it just do nothing it stuck there
