Since my wifi does not work on my PS3 anymore, I'm assuming I'm going to have to do the advanced users method. Is there any other way I can get the klicensee?

That's the only way of finding it unfortunately. Do you have a router? Perhaps consider getting an Ethernet cable and connecting that way.

Tried that... well not to router but to my laptop. The cable lights up for 10 seconds during startup. After that... doesn't work. The internet test passes if I'm within that short time interval.

I think it's clear you need to first figure out your hardware issues with your PS3 before attempting customs. You're welcome to keep trying here, but this is not a PS3-centric forum and you'll get little to no support because we barely have anyone on here that even owns a PS3, much less be able to offer support with modded PS3 hardware issues.
Get the hardware issues sorted, solid WiFi connection. Then try customs again :)

There are ways around this. Look into either SEN enabler or PSNpatch, one of these should get you back online to at least download the Free Pack.

Also this weeks release for PS3 will be a bit late, as we are currently testing the new audio format. Once it's ready to go, I'll upload this weeks release, and start converting the previous weeks to the new format.

I had to resort to other methods that I won't discuss to retrieve it...would it be possible to convert xbox 360 jtag DLC to ps3 on ps3 converter? Or is there encryption that prevents this? Also, how is the new audio method going along?

I'm sure you're not asking if / how to illegally convert official DLC content to PS3 instead of, you know, supporting the company that gave us the game and buying it. I'm absolutely sure that's not what you're asking. Cause I would hate to have to ban you and what not.

Support HMX. Buy official content.

I don't have any methods to even download the DLC on my PS3 since wifi and ethernet is absolutely broken on the PS3. If you have any ideas to fix it then that would be great. The only other way I could think of which I'm not sure is even possible is to take off DLC from a RROD Xbox to PS3.

Your inability to purchase content because of whatever is not an excuse to pirate DLC. Buy a new PS3, buy a wireless router, fix your ethernet port. Not our problem.
But make sure you understand this. No more discussion of pirating anything or it will be the last time you post on here.

This is a legit question. How to pirate stuff is not.

Alright fair enough. I'll look into purchasing another PS3. Sorry for the trouble I've caused. Is there any updates on fixing the pausing for the custom songs?

Yes, yesterday's release of C3 CON Tools now has that fixed. You'll have to give TDCMark some time to re-up the fixed songs to the DB or you can use the PS3 converter yourself in the meantime.

Hi guys,
thanks so much for realising customs on PS3 and for the amazing PS3-converter! I don't think it's useless work like anyone said here...

Because I have collected so much HMX-DLC for my PS3 game there was no way to turn to XBOX360. So I decided to switch to PhaseShift in the past.
But with the possibilities you gave me I want to start jailbreaking my PS3 now.

I'm from germany and use a PAL device. But on the other hand I use the US-versions of all RockBand games including all dlc and import-keys. Of course, I have an US account to purchase DLC (otherwise the DLC wouldn't work with german DLC).
That's why I'm a bit confused on how to jailbreak my console the best way for using customs in RockBand 3 (US).

Do I have to care about encrypting anything to play the customs or can I easily convert the rb3cons to PS3 with your converter and transfer it to my console, because I'm using the US-version of RockBand?

And which CFW should I install on my PS3 to get the best results? As I read it should be "Rebug 4.21" but does that count for my PAL-PS3 with the US game as well? :shobon:

Thanks in advance for your help! :)

Since you're using the NTSC version of the game and NTSC DLC, you should have no problem installing customs! I recommend using the latest version of C3 CON Tools to convert CONs to the PS3 format using the "PS3 Converter" option, as currently the PS3 versions on the database are an old format that do not allow pausing (I will be fixing that shortly).

As for jailbreaking your PS3, it all comes down to what model of PS3 you have (from what I've read, your PS3 is NOT jailbroken already correct?). I'm no expert on the subject of jailbreaking, but you can only install Custom Firmware (CFW) on 3.55, which means you have to downgrade to that firmware. Downgrading means you need a hardware flasher. Off hand I can tell you that the new 4xxx Super Slim series and the Slim model 3xxx series can NOT be downgraded unfortunately.

Like I said, I'm not an expert on jailbreaking, so best to read this guide if you need more info.

If you do have a 3xxx/4xxx model PS3, you may want to look into a ODE (Optical Drive Emulator) such as the 3k3y or the Cobra ODE. This still requires hardware modifications however.
PS3 Customs are a go!

FOR ALL PS3 USERS: The pausing and practice mode bug has been fixed! The last two weeks of customs should be on the database in the next hour! Hooray! I'll update the original thread to note which weeks are fixed, and which ones are not. Also, if a song isn't fixed on the database, feel free to grab the CON file and use the PS3 Converter yourself.


Moving on...After seeing this...

My PS3 since wifi and ethernet is absolutely broken on the PS3.

dang...my ps3 is banned....

And realizing that it really isn't a good idea to be going online with a CFW...I bring good news! Take a look at the original post, and you'll find "Initial Setup: Option 2". This should allow for customs without having to go online to download the pack :) If you need a way of moving stuff on to your PS3 and can't use wifi/ethernet (*hint*007shinobi*hint*), you should be able to with MultiMan or Comgenie's Awesome Filemanager.


For PAL users: I've updated the section so the installation of customs is clearer. I may have discovered a method that would do away with this section all together, but I would need someone with the PAL version of RB3 to verify. If anyone would be willing to do a simple test for me, please let me know! Like I said, it would make customs on the PAL platform WAY easier.

Thanks for your quick reply! :derp:
I have a PS3 with modell code CECH-2104A, which means I'm on the safe side on jailbreaking it.
And thanks for your hints regarding jailbreaking a PS3, but I think that will not be a big thing to me to be done.

The only thing I want to know is which CFW would be the best to be installed to run RockBand 3 the best way.
Shall I use "Rebug 4.21" or doesn't it matter which CFW I use to run RockBand 3 with custom songs support?

And thanks again for your great work! :excited:

Ah my apologies, never answered that part of your question. Doesn't matter which one you use really. When I had my CFW PS3, I preferred being on the highest CFW, so that I could use a program like PSNpatch to go back on the PSN store. I think Rogero makes a 4.55 CFW, and I've never had problems with Rogero in the past, so I'd go with that one.

Edit: Here's a link to it: http://psx-scene.com... ... -cfw-4183/

I guess, using the highest CFW would be necessary, because I need to download my purchased DLC from the PSN store...
So Rogero 4.55 sounds good to me! :)

I will leave a message when it's done and RockBand 3 (hopefully) works fine on my PS3...

By the way: Do you have a substitude for your broken PS3 now?

Good stuff, make sure you use something like PSNpatch to be on the safe side :)

I bought a 3k3y for my Slim, I'm just waiting for it to be installed (I don't have any experience with solder, otherwise I'd do it myself). Should be back and running in a few days!
