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.

Following up on his previous releases, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer KW (via kokotonix) has updated to PSN Patch v1.06 for PS3 Custom Firmware, which allows users to temporarily disable their CFW, spoof their Console ID and more as detailed below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

To quote: PSNpatch 1.06 + STEALTH VERSION + COBRA PLUGIN for 4.XX CFW & COBRA 7.0

  • New vsh plug-in to auto boot with cobra 7.0 systems (the "true-STEALTH" experience) (see footnotes);
  • Added support for aditional cobra syscalls (these are hard to find, but it is safer to disable them also);
  • If cobra is detected the current and spoofed Firmware version are displayed;
  • This version brings news for Cobra 7.0 users. Other CFW users DO NOT NEED to update as ALL PREVIOUS PSNPatch VERSIONS are compatible with EVERY 4.XX versions (even 4.53).

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.

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 OR 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.
  • Note 2: Once the RAPs and EDATs are installed, you can remove them form 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 PLUGIN:

If you know how to install a SPRX VSH plug-in in cobra, there is one available with the PSNPATCH distribution. Forget all about instalations and choose a true stealth option. It is a great complement for WEBMAN if you want to try a real STEALTH aproach. No homebrew installation !

WEBMAN mounts games and SPOOFS firmware version to 4.53. PSNPATCH disables CFW and SPOOFs idps and psid. See additional plug-in documentation.

REMEMBER:

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

THANKS:

  • stoker25 for psidpatch.
  • user for psnope.
  • flatz, fail0verflow, snowydev, JuanNadie, EXE.trim.ALL, and all other for EDAT signing algorithms.
  • deank for webman's source code.
  • cobra authors for the MOST FANTASTIC firmware add-ons there are.
  • all others I've not listed: Without you, it would have been impossible !

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.

Launch a game with Multiman

Then use psnpatch, then play the game you loaded with Multiman
This "cfw disabling" will only be active until next ps3 reboot.

You will have to reboot to play a different game.
