the TB fixes: how do they work? and do i need a spoofer
the TB fixes: how do they work? and do i need a spoofer –
usually comes with a pkg only. what doe the package do?
ALSO, the 3.41 nad 3.55 fixes usually include a eboot and param.sfo along with a package. what does each thing do?
ALSO what good is a spoofer? do i need one? i am on kmeaw but i have read around some threads in which spoofing was needed for the pkg fixes to work????
pkg's install files to the game cache folder, usually a new eboot and one or two other files (that were encrypted with 3.5+ keys). It's kind of like just replacing files yourself but easier (I think).
The eboot is basically like a windows exe. param.sfo holds the copyright info and a little line teling the PS3 what firmwre is needed, these are edited to replace it with a 3.41 etc. Any other files are basically game data but because the retail version of them has been encrypted with keys higher than 3.5 CFW is unable to open and read them, the cracker/patcher just (I say just, I'm sure it's not that easy) decypts them using higher keys or some magic then re-encrpyts them with 3.41 keys.
I could be very wrong with all of that, but that's my understanding,
Oh yeah, no, you don't need any spoofer, just the game and the fix (and a TB if you want to use TB fixes, but their kind of redundant now, ever since groups started fixing the fixes).
half-arsed lazy modder
In Windows parlance, a pkg file would be an installer. DCgh0st is correct in his description.
thanks. so if they give an eboot, it means they edited it to run correctly with the signed crap? not relaly sure what the eboot exe that they provides does for the fix

what's the point of them if the pkg file adds all these for you?
