via PSGroove KaKaRoTo Creates First PS3 Custom Firmware The day everyone has been waiting for, is finally upon us. KaKaRoTo, famous for his work on the PL3 payload, has released a tool/script that converts a standard v3.55 Sony retail firmware PUP, into a custom version. The custom firmware allows the installation of PKG files, without the need for a jailbreak. Please note, this does not appear to have the necessary patches in place, that are necessary for playing backups. However, that is a very trivial detail, considering the grand spectrum of what KaKaRoTo has achieved. Stay tuned to this post, as I will be updated it with much more information, this news is late breaking and I wanted to get it out to everyone as soon as possible. Pre-made pup coming soon. KaKaRoTo's Git Via KaKaRoTo's Twitter: "First CFW working. Grab http://bit.ly/hszcH3, then "./create_cfw.sh PS3UPDAT.355.PUP CFW.PUP". Permanently adds "install pkg files" menu." "@josuaarzensek custom firmware is what you want it to be, you run the script on 3.55 OFW and you get 3.55 CFW" Video of it in action: Here's what KaKaRoTo said on his blog: [/p] Woohoo!
