Rebug Team has released PlayStation 3 v3.56 version spoofer to stop or prevent your PS3 from automatically updating to the latest 3.56 firmware.

3.56 Version Spoofer does exactly what it says and can restore back to 3.55 if needed. It was never intended to allow PSN access but to stop the system from updating to 3.56(I made it shortly after KaKaRoToKS had his false alarm).

Once the PS3 is spoofed it will stay spoofed until it is uninstalled.

Press CROSS to INSTALL 3.56 Version Spoof (the status will change after 15 – 45 seconds telling you to reboot)

Press CIRCLE to UNINSTALL 3.56 Version Spoof (the status will change after 15 – 45 seconds telling you to reboot)

Even though the official description by the Rebug team states that PSN access isn’t allowed, but fortunately, ARVI at PSX-SCENE has come up with a way to use this with KMEAW jailbroken custom firmware 3.55 by spoofing it to 3.56, and keeping the access to PSN.

Here’s how to do it:

TOOLS NEEDED
3.56 Spoofer DOWNLOAD
F*CK PSN DOWNLOAD (instructions, tools & CER27 to setup F*CK PSN are in this download)
LV2 Patcher V9 DOWNLOAD
