3.55 resigner help –
Im (just for now and due to the TON of PSN games I have) sticking with 3.55.
Does anyone have the current best way to fix current games for 3.55? I see there are different programs to do it but also noticed they only deal with eboots and when I DL ones that are fixed by pros they contain more then just an eboot.
Essentially im looking to backup my copy of Ni No Kuni US version.
It's pretty easy to do... if you use an FTP program, you can pop into the directory over FTP, drag the Eboot.bin to the PC, run the resigner, and drag/drop it back. I always renamed the file on the PS3 over FTP to like Eboot_355.bin first, in case the new resigned one wasn't going to work. I used to use "TrueAncestor EBOOT Resigner v1.5" (or greater). Use option #3 NPDRM. It's really easy. I guess you can even try out the process on 3.55? I'm not sure, but I think the resigned Eboots will still run on 3.55 too.
So FTP in
Drag eboot over to your PC resigner program
Over FTP, rename the orig Eboot to eboot_orig.bin
drag it back (it wont ask to overwrite since you renamed the original eboot to eboot_orig) and you are done, it should run. It takes only about 1 minute for each PSN game you have. Oh here's another tip. Over FTP, you can VIEW the SFO file to see what game directory you are in (it's a binary file, but has readable text in it, like the name of the game, etc).
EDIT: The Eboots were all I needed to resign on my PSN games. Note, this process also works for older apps like Blackbox FTP, SNES 9x, etc. Like in the case of SNES 9x, i dont think there is a resigned version you can download. Before anyone says it, yes, I switched to Retroarch, which seems to work perfectly, like SNES 9x did. But I left SNES 9x on, in case I wanted to compare someday.

It launches the brute force but it can never find a key.
Anyone feel they are an ace at resigning eboots/sprx for 3.55?
IMO, resigning newer games for 3.55 isn't worth the trouble anymore. Some fixes do not work well (have bugs) and some games I believe will not work at all on 3.55. I think it's past the point to where you would be better off resigning your Eboots to 4.xx. I stayed on 3.55 longer than most myself -- until a couple months after Rebug came out with 4.21. I started running into the issues I mention about games not getting good fixes for 3.55, and, why take all that pain of patching, not to mention patching all the UPDATES too! On 4.30+, all the games work perfectly, and all the updates do too. Take a couple hours (or a day) to resign all your PSN stuff, and you'll be glad you did. But, I'm not answering your question, so if anyone can help with getting recent stuff to work on 3.55, please chime in.
PS -- For some reason I read your original post wrong, I did think you were asking about resigning to 4.xx. Sorry I was a bit backwards on what you were looking for!
Gotcha! First off thanks for the info!
Not heard of any games not working with 3.55 at all... Even the latest ones getting patched work great on 3.55 Either way, im sure you are right.
Ok so then few questions.
What are your exact steps for updating? Im currently on 3.55 True Blue edition. Is it just a straight update through recovery? I have a launch 60gb.
A step by step would be greatly appreciated
Once its on the latest FW, I need to resign everything. I know how to FTP into the box just fine but what am I resigning? I installed the PSN games via package files. And my ps3 games are just the folders. Are the eboots the ONLY things that need to be resigned? Im confused a but why even it would need to be resigned as 3.55 is an earlier FW then the newest.
Thanks for the help!
Ahh, I see what you mean about not having the original Eboots... any eboots (and other files) that you replaced with True Blue patches will not work without the dongle /TB CFW. So this will be a big problem. Of course, all the PSN stuff will be okay, and can be resigned. On the PSN stuff, like I said, all you need to resign is the Eboot.bin. But on the games, all the files that were patched would have to have the originals replaced. So you may decide not to update after all with many of your games needing to be re-installed. On the other hand, you will keep getting in deeper if you keep patching for 3.55, and eventually down the road you will probably wish you had switched over and gotten rid of TB firmware.
To update, you would need to put on Rebug 3.55, then from there, load the Rebug Toolbox and Enable QA. Then make sure no disc is in the drive, and do the update to 4.xx. I'm on Rebug 4.30 with the rebug 4.41 spoof (it has Cinavia protection removed) and everything works on it. Or you can do the 4.41 Rebug (but it doesn't have Cinavia removed). Cinavia is a protection that affects playing certain movies on the ps3 (usually 1080p MKVs of movies). If I had to pick one, I'd say the latest 4.30 rebug with 4.41 spoof would be the way to go. Anyways, then you just do the update normally from the XMB after setting the QA enabled (or, you can use recovery mode -- thats what I did).
Hope this helps,
Gotcha thanks for the info:
So my steps would be
1 - use recovery mode to install rebug 3.55 (should be able to coming from TB FW right? The TB dongle should be REMOVED during this right?)
2 - At this point, ALL the games that have been 3.55 patched and the PSN games should work right? Like pretty much be just like I had it (with the exception of the TB games not working)
3 - Use recovery mode to install 4.41. after enabling QA
4 - At this point I need to replace all the original eboots on the ps3 games correct? Since all games I have on their are pre 4.41, they should all work with the ORIGINAL files right?
5 - Use a tool to resign the psn games?
This seem about right? (I have a media center box so I could care less about Cinavia) Any worries from coming off of the TB firmware or recovery mode should take care of all that?
Someone that has updated from TB might chime in here and verify that it's fine to update from TB 3.55 to Rebug 3.55 with no issues. From what i REMEMBER reading it should be fine, but I don't know for sure. I would think the dongle should be removed, but I'm not sure how the TB CFW works. You may have some luck searching the site on updating True Blue firmware.
After you get on Rebug 3.55 everything should still work except the ones that are patched for TB CFW.
Then use Rebug Toolbox, set QA to enabled. Then update to Rebug 4.41 Lite. You will have to update Multiman too, it supports 4.41 rebug
Okay, now on 4.41, all the ORIGINAL DISC based games should work (no TB stuff in there). It will all work with no patches or fixes... (4.41 IS the latest OFW) as well as all updates for the games. But the PSN stuff, most if not all of it will have to be resigned for 4.41. See my first post on that again =)....... So yep, you have it right! Good luck!!
