PLEASE READ CAREFULLY THE DOCUMENTATION BEFORE USING PSNPATCH. BE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT CAN BE DONE WITH PSNPATCH. NO WARRANTIES ARE GIVEN. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. DON'T USE PSNPATCH FOR PIRACY. PSNPATCH AUTHOR CONDEMNS PIRACY.

DESCRIPTION:

This is a small app made by KW and inspired in the works of stoker25 (psidpatch) and user (psnope).

The major objective is to spoof the console Id and disable cfw syscalls extensions in order to make your system more "safe" to go into the psn. (Note that MORE safe doesn't mean IT IS safe!). Additionally, you can also install RAPs and EDATs and unlock psn game demos. Starting from psidpatch simple interface with the functionalities of psnope. New algorithms specially made for CFW disable and valid user account search.

There is also an alternative stealth version disguised as BLJS10018 (NBA2K8 Japanese version). The stealth version and BLJS10018 cannot be installed at the same time !

Major Functions:

  • Spoof IDPS (console ID) *;
  • Spoof PSID *;
  • Disable cfw syscalls (emulates official firmware) *
  • Deletes game launch history (deletes the records of the last games used);
  • Install RAPs and EDATs.
  • Unlock PSN (c00) game demos.

* these actions are temporary until next system reboot. All functions are firmware version independent (4.XX and Cobra 7.0).

How to use:

Just install and run. A simple interface will guide you through. Optionally you can install a prx plugin that runs in the background and do all the "spoofing" and CFw disabling from the xmb by means of a simple shortcut (read below).

CFW DISABLE / REMOVE SYSCALLS

You can execute the app directly after install. This will allow you to remove cfw syscalls and delete execution history. Removing syscall will simulate a official firmware version improving protection level against PSN bans. Note that after doing this, some homebrew programs (like multiMAN) will refuse to execute. Just mount the game backup you want BEFORE using PSNPATCH to disable cfw. After CFW is disabled you can play the mounted game backup but cannot mount another one. This "cfw disabling" will only be active until next ps3 reboot.

Press TRIANGLE (3 beeps will inform of the cfw removal success). If there were NO BEEPS it means that the CFW WAS NOT DISABLED!!!

Psnpatch uses 3 complimentary algorithms to improve cfw disabling success rate.

SPOOF CONSOLE ID (IDPS):

If you want to spoof idps and psid, you need to the edit the PSNPATCH.cfg file
(see example).PSNPATCH will scan locations in the following order:
"/dev_usb000/psnpatch.cfg"
"/dev_hdd0/game/PSNP11001/USRDIR/psnpatch.cfg"
"/dev_hdd0/game/BLJS10018/USRDIR/psnpatch.cfg"

Press SQUARE just to spoof both idps and psid.

"ALL IN ONE":

Press CROSS to do a "ALL IN ONE": Spoof idps and psid, disable cfw syscalls and delete execution history. (3 beeps will inform of the success disabling cfw). You can even start psnpatch and keep X pressed until you ear the 3 beeps, bypassing the user interface and back to XMB !

INSTALLING RAPS AND EDATS:

When PSNPATCH starts, it will search for the first valid user account (usually it will be '1', but it can be a different value).
Place RAPs and/or EDATs in the folder configured in PSNPATCH.cfg (usually /dev_usb0/exdata/ in a usb stick placed on the right most ps3 port).

Press L1 - a log will be displayed on-screen listing the processed games by file type

Note 1: Advisable not process more than 20 files at the same time (if you sign more they will not appear in the log).
Note 2: Once the RAPs and EDATs are installed, you can remove them from the USB stick.
Note 3: RAPs and EDATs are installed in one user account but available to all users.
Note 4: RAPs are installed with the current IDPS (original or spoofed) and will only work with that IDPS active!
Note 5: EDATs are IDPS independent

UNLOCK PSN GAME (C00) DEMOS:

PSNpatch can unlock game demos of c00 type. For each unlocked game there will be created a new EDAT.

Press R1 - A list of unlocked games will be displayed on screen.

QUICK USE

If you don't want the user interface, just execute PSNPATCH and keep pressed CROSS or TRIANGLE until 3 beeps and get back to the XMB.

FIRMWARE VERSIONS COMPATIBILITY:

PSNPATCH should be compatible with every 4.XX version. It is independent of the CFW "flavour" (rebug, rogero, habib, steve, etc). Tested with 4.21, 4.25, 4.30, 4.41, 4.46, 4.50 and 4.53. It should be compatible with future firmware releases, as it uses standard syscalls to process the spoofing method. It does the cfw disabling by searching and disabling the known "unofficial”syscalls 6,7,8,9,10,35,36 - and some "others" for Cobra Equal to every 4.X firmware until now. The remaining functions deals with the ps3 file system and are also compatible with every firmware version.

TESTING IF PSNPATCH WORKS WITH YOUR SYSTEM:

IF you want to be sure psnpatch works in your system:

  • Edit pasnpatch.cfg to define new idps and psid. Put it in the root of a usb stick and place it in the rightmost ps3 usb port.
  • Run psnpatch keeping CROSS pressed until you ear 3 beeps or got back to XMB.
  • If the system beeped, it means that the cfw disabling was successful.
  • You can re-run psnpatch. It should give you an error complaining about cfw syscalls not found and it will display the current idps and psid values.
  • You can also run Multiman, Irismanager or any other syscall-dependent homebrew: they will all complain about an unsupported firmware version

COBRA SYSTEMS and PLUGINS:

  • Cobra systems are also supported (running in any 4.46 and 4.53 habib cobra editions) with a list of additional functions.
  • If the cobra firmware has the stealth extensions installed, it will use them for improved security (see bellow).
  • In cobra systems there is also an option available to install plugins and add-ons.
  • PSNPatch interface can install and remove:
  • PSNPatch plugin (disable cfw / spoof idps & psid / deletes history / unloads from memory);
  • Cobra stealth extensions;
  • webMAN 1.26 special edition (a re-compiled versions that unloads from memory with psnpatch);
  • XMB webMAN support (add "my games" and remove "app_home" from );
  • PSNPatch plugin can be called with L3+R3+R2;
  • 3 seconds, 3 beeps, and it is done !
  • After disabling syscalls the plugin unloads itself from memory;
  • webMAN special version based on official 1.26 included. It unloads itself from memory with PSNPatch when syscalls are disabled.
  • If you have a previous version of the above plugins, remove using psnpatch interface, and re-install again with psnpatch.
  • After installing the plug-ins, they will stay resident in memory until being unninstall from psnpatch interface.
  • You can remove psnpatch application after installing the plugins !

PSNPATCH plug-in disables CFW, deletes execution history, SPOOFs idps and psid, and removes itself from memory. PRESS L3+R3+R2 in XMB to activate. PRESS L3+TRIANGLE+R2 in XMB - safety options for bad plug-ins: it disables ALL plug-ins (renames boot_plugins.txt) and reboot.

COBRA STEALTH extensions (optional):

I've added 2 opcode extensions for cobra that allows an higher stealth approach - when called, the extensions will remove cobra's syscall table protection, allowing a PERFECT syscall table reconstruction (mimic a OFW one). Use ONLY with your correct cobra version (any 4.46 or habib's 4.53 cobra editions). This change is made at stage2.bin level. As it is VERY sensitive to manipulate both ps3 flash memory and cobra's stage files, psnpatch can do this for you. It was tested toughly many different configurations without any issues. But, again, without any warranties!

REMEMBER !

Never execute any homebrew WHILE connected to the PSN ! And the safest way to keep being banned is to be offline!!!

PIRACY

PSNpatch condemns piracy! Use PSNpatch only for legally obtained games and content.

WARRANTY

PsnPatch comes with absolutely NO WARRANTY. Use-it at your own risk.

THANKs

  • stoker25 for psidpatch.
  • user for psnope.
  • deank for webMAN and multiMAN.
  • cobra authors for the MOST FANTASTIC firmware add-ons there are.
  • habib for your weeks of HARD WORK in porting cobra to 4.53 !
  • flatz, fail0verflow, snowydev, JuanNadie, EXE.trim.ALL, and all other for EDAT signing algorithms.
  • all others I've not listed: Without you, it would have been impossible !

PSNPatch Noob FAQ

Q: What can I do with psnpatch ?
A: Psnpatch allows a safer (less "banneable" ) connection to PSN when using a CFW (custom firmware).
To do so, it "masks" cfw (simulates an official firmware version) and deletes all traces of homebrew (unlicensed ps3 software) been used in your console. If this is what you want to do, just run psidpatch pressing TRIANGLE until you ear 3 beeps - or wait for the user interface to appear and follow the on-screen instructions.

Note: If you want to play online, you should mount any game backup you may need BEFORE using psnpatch. After using psnpatch, it will NOT be possible to change the mounted backup UNTIL next reboot. You can also use psnpatch to do a temporary change of your console's ID (IDPS and PSID) and install RAPs, EDATs and unlock psn game demos.

Q: How can I confirm that CFW is properly masked ?
A: PSNPATCH does the test for you. After masking CFW it makes the proper testing and beeps if they were successfully.
You can do other tests until you trust psnpatch : just call multiman or iris manager - if the cfw is properly masked / disabled, you will get an error with both applications.

Q:But my console is banned ! what can I do ?
A: If you have the ConsoleID (IDPS) and the PSID from another unbanned console, you can "spoof" that console unbanning you current one.

1. Edit psnpatch.cfg file (see example that goes with psnpatch distribution) and apply the proper values.
2. Place psnpatch.cfg at the root of a usb stick.
3. Place the stick in the rightmost port of your ps3.

Q: How can I obtain an unbanned IDPS and PSID ?
A: Usually by having another (tipically dead / ylod) console and accessing its flash memory in order to get the IDPS and PSID.

Q: I don't like pressing so many keys. I will like to do a "all in one" idps & psid spoofing, cfw disabling/masking and execution history deletion. Can it be done ?
A: Yes ! Run psnpatch and keep CROSS pressed. Wait for the beeps and getting back to the xmb.

Q: I have here some RAP files and also some EDAT files. What are these ?
A: They are license files to allow you to execute certain PSN games or DLC (downloadable contents).

Q: How can I use them with psnpatch ?
A: Just place them in a exdata folder in a usb stick. Place the stick in the rightmost port of your ps3.
When running psnpatch, press L1 to install RAP & EDAT files.
After installation, you can remove the files from the exdata folder.

NOTE: RAP files are connected to the current console ID (IDPS). If you installed a RAP with a spoofed IDPS, the game will only work when that IDPS is spoofed in memory.
NOTE: I suggest you have a user to install content for one IDPS, and another user to run content of another IDPS.
NOTE: Oppostite to RAP files, EDAT files are system and user independent. Just install and play !

Q: In the readme.txt it says that PSNPATCH can unlock game demos. How ?
A: Simple: Just press R1. All PSN game demos (C00 type) will be unlocked.

Q: I have a 4.46 system that shows a black screen when playing the newer games. What can I do ?
A: Probalby those games are signed with the new 4.50 keys. Simply use psnpatch and press L2. A menu will allow you to choose were to scan for games, including a usb port. Note that usb port 0 is rightmost one. After patching the needed games, the ps3 will reboot.

Q: What does mean the cobra stealth extensions ?
A: These are a set of new opcodes specially designed to make a perfect cobra cfw "stealthing".
When these are installed and psnpatch "disable cfw" option is activated, it is virtually impossible to detect that a cfw is running. Note that this only work in 4.46 cobra editions and 4.53 habib cobra editions. 4.46 system can be of any author known at the moment, but for 4.53 only HABIB versions were tested.

Q: Are there any additional PSN unban suggestions ?
A: A couple of points I've compiled:
1. Stay off-line !
2. Stay off-line !!
3. Stay off-line !!!
4. Never configure your ps3 to auto-connect to psn on boot time;
5. Use psnpatch BEFORE connecting to the psn;
6. DON'T use any homebrew AFTER connecting to the PSN;
7. If you already connect to the psn with a firmware version (ex: 4.50) never try to connect with a lower version afterwards - this will mean INSTANT BAN !!!

Q: What is the XMB ?
A: It's the PS3 menu !

Q: What is a Ps3 ?
A: Well... If you're asking this, you should not be reading this document

Q: You say that "Psnpatch condemns piracy". So, why have you made psnpatch ?
A: KW had a PS3 which Bluray player was damaged for playing disc games. He had to wait for 30 days to receive a "new" reconditioned (repaired) ps3.And was afraid of getting again the same problem. Some time after this, started the cfw wave.

According to the laws of KW country, he has the legal right of doing a backup of legally obtained material (for personal use only). So, he decided to have his ps3 with cfw to play his (long list of legally obtained) games from the internal HDD - sparing the BR drive.

Some time after, He needed to replace the ps3 HDD for a bigger one, but Sony decided to ban his psn account and his console's ID. During the HDD switching he lost all the licenses of the legally obtained psn games !!! So he made this tool, sharing it with the community. Hoping that the ones that will use it, will do it for the same reasons.

So being in somewhat the same predicament (have a brand new CECHA01 fat that was stored in-the-box on OFW 3.15 since '09. It has now been successfully updated to Rogero CFW 4.46 v 1.01 with MM 4.53v4, & Showtime.)

just want to transfer/SYnC trophy/gamesaves from valid PSN account since the blu ray broke on NON-jailbroken PS3.

The only game installed so far gt5... since I was a level 40 A&B this would be impossible without connection to psn. SO whats the alternative, (short of using a bruteforce extraction/dycrypt/rebuild/etc..)

Is it possible to update/install OFW4.53 OVER Rogero CFW 4.46 with qa flag enabled, go to psn, sync trophy gamesaves THEN reinstall Rogero CFW 4.46 WITHOUT HAVING TO USE/INSTALL a hardware flasher??
