19w ago - Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developer user updated PSNope to version 1.06 (Test) with the changes outlined below.

To quote: here were some requests for an update so here you are. Sony added some checks to syscall 870 in fw 4.55, but this update should make psnope pass these checks removing cfw calls should work again.

New Test Features:

  • Output content from the community log files (enable the debug_log option if you're running cex fw)
  • Cleanup community log files based on blacklisting. no idea if its useful or not...

No cobra fw support (and no plans to add support it in the future)

Anyway, i'm not really interested in updating PSNope anymore and if you want to play online with cfw i recommend to:

  • restore ofw syscall table
  • clean up all history and log files
  • restore ofw explore_plugin.sprx, nas_plugin.sprx and explore_category_game.sprx

There is no tool which supports all of these atm. oh, and don't spoof anything. PSN can check in theory if idps belongs to console, syscall table matches fw version, syscall table is not ofw, fw allows installing debug pkgs with broken signature, etc. no idea if they actually do these checks but they gather lots of checksums from your console each time you log into psn.

Prior Changelogs & Q/A

PSNope v1.05:

  • psid spoofing
  • Cleanup boot_history.dat etc.
  • Delete boot_history.dat etc.
  • Beep to indicate successful rif creation

PSNope v1.00:

  • Activate PSN content
  • Spoof idps
  • Fake ofw (remove cfw syscalls)
  • Firmware independent i.e. no version specific offsets

Q&A (from v1.05)

Q: I want to activate PSN content. How to get started?
A: 1. create the folders psnope\lic\ on your pen drive
2. put the rap files of the content you want to activate into the "lic" dir
3. plug your pen drive into the rightmost usb port of your ps3 (/dev_usb000)
4. run PSNope

Q: Do i need the "aa" account to make it work?
A: No, you don't.

Q: How can i enable changing my idps?
A: open config.txt, change "spoof_idps=0" to "spoof_idps=1" and set "idps=" to the idps you want to use

Q: Where does it look for config.txt?
A: It looks for config.txt in the following places and uses the first it is able to open:
1. /app_home/config.txt
2. /dev_usb000/psnope/config.txt
3. /dev_hdd0/game/BLES08890/USRDIR/config.txt

Q: I spoofed my idps and and activated some content. Why doesn't it work?
A: Because your idps is part of the decryption algo. Please set "use_spoofed_idps" to "1" to fix it.

Q: Whats a ".klic" file?
A: Its a decrypted ".rap" file. PSNope supports these as well.

Q: How can i disable certain System Calls that may be detected?
A: remove_cfw_syscalls=1

Q: Will PSNope work on future CFWs?
A: It should work as is, because there are no version specific offsets being used (unlike the others).

Q: Is there any chance my console could get bricked by PSNope?
A: Nope no changes are being made to your console's flash.

Q: Can I use the source code or parts of it in my own projects?
A: Sure, as long as your project is open source.

Please have a look into config.txt. Enabling or disabling the new features should be pretty much self-explanatory.

This sounds like a PSN TOOL Upgrade...

Even though i have everything running already, this tool may come useful in the future since it apparently works on "any" firmware

Greetings to: ps3dev-net

Also above is PSNope with a Free Console ID (via biteyourconsole.net/scena-ps3-psnope-con-consoleid-free/) with details below, roughly translated:

"So many people have encountered several difficulties to run the homebrew PSNope, we thought of leaving a preconfigured version. Fortunately the Consoleid that it uses is Free (also used on the classic ps_unban ), but will eventualy be banned, try to use it until it is no longer valid.

Note: Extract all files with winrar and copy in pendrive, if you have already installed the version of PSNope you must remove it and install the one in the file psnope.rar.

Now start the homebrew PSNope, that after a few seconds of processing, will take you back to the xmb, from now you can connect to the PlayStation Network."

Finally, from Rautz comes a guide on How To Use PSNope as follows:

Here's a little usage guide I wrote for someone else this morning that I may as well post up for anyone else that is still having problems. Its a rough guide but it should get you on track.

Requirements

  • A PS3 file manager of your choice
  • PS3Nope pkg.
  • act.dat

How to use

After installing PSNope you want to open a file manager and check which of your PS3 accounts has act.dat.

You can do so by going to /dev_hdd0/home/000000xx and opening the exdata folder. After finding an account with act.dat make note of which number it uses eg /dev_hdd0/home/00000008

If none of your accounts have act.dat you'll need to go to the store and grab an EA game online pass, since they are now free. If you are getting errors stopping you from downloading then try creating a new user on the PS3 and sign in on that user. There are probably other safer ways to create act.dat I just dont know them.

On your computer open up the config.txt file and edit it according to how you wish to use PSNope:

If you have a look at the config.txt you can see that I've chosen to have raps associated with 00000015 highlighted in italics, this was the only account at this PS3 that had been activated(act.dat in the exdata folder).

Spoof the idps

If you like playing online and using tools that spoof your console id and PSID then you you'll want to be enabling the option I have highlighted in bold.

Enable = 1
Disable = 0

At the moment this option doesnt act as some sort of PSN ban workaround like some people think it does, it is an option so that if you choose to use a tool that spoofs, idps, PSID, and mac address like SEN Enabler then your games wont break compatibility(since PSNope relies on idps to decrypt rap files).

Enabling this option before activating this content will allow you to use SEN Enabler whilst still enjoying the PSN games. Note that you will need to use the same spoofed idps for both tools. A future version seems to be on the cards to allow PSID spoofing so this will be a proper all in one tool in that respect.

Activating the content

If you've used ReactPSN before your find this part unnecessary since it is the same procedure(apart from your folders used on the usb.

On your usb your rap files go into this path I highlight in underline in the config example. dev_usb000= the right most usb port.

Install the game packages onto your PS3

Once your raps are in the right folder and flash drive is in the correct port, run the app. It will black screen for a sec or two(I only activated 5 raps, I'm not sure how long a pirates folder would take to activate) and return to XMB without rebooting.

Your games should be ready to play now. Tested working with:

  • Metal Slug
  • Crazy Taxi
  • Alpha Mission 2
  • Capcom vs SNK 2(PS2 Classic)
  • Some UC3 DLC

Thanks u$er for releasing this nifty tool.
