• PS3 Hacks, PSN, Uncategorized , 12.10.2011

    A PS3HaX member mallory released his tools to reactivate your legally purchased PSN games, here is a quote from his thread:

    Here is v2. Now unself2 and readself2 have the NPDRM magic too. Trying to use unself2 on one of my game stops with an unknown section type error. That section is of type 3 and it looks like it is some kind if linking info. Look in the readme for more information.

    And a quote from the Read Me:

    Based off of gitbrew’s 215d8903bc86539ca1da53519e2ac10eeafc4c27
    ps3tools. .git folder not included to protect senstive info about the author.
    Sorry about the fucked up tabs, TAB = 4 SPACES 4 LYFE!!!
    Add the files in the npdrm_keystuff folder to your ps3 keys folder. Create a
    file with your console’s 16 byte IDPS in the ‘idps’ file in your ps3 keys
    folder (e.g. ~/.ps3/idps).
    Copy your PS3′s exdata folder containing your act.dat and rif files to your
    ps3 keys dir (e.g. ~/.ps3/exdata/act.dat). Compile and have fun with your
    LEGALLY purchased NPDRM games!

    Also works on free games without exdata/idps.

    Apologies for any existing bugs in unself. Adding these changes to
    unself2 is left as an exercise for the reader.

    v2 info:
    Added npdrm magic to unself2 and readself2
    unself2 doesn’t like the metadata section with type 3 in my game.
    This section looks to be some kind of linking information. Here is a snippet:
    crt0:p190002crt1:p190002libaudio_stub:p190002libaudio_stub:p190002

    I haven’t yet looked around to see if this is type of section is documented anywhere.

    Thanks:
    fail0verflow for the orginal tools
    JuanNadie for figuring out NPDRM
    euss for his endless hours of work on the wiki

    Why didn’t you beat me to the punch, Team PS360? I didn’t need to reverse a
    single instruction! It isn’t that hard…

    UPDATE
    mallory has updated his work to v.3, here is a quote from his post:

    unself2 now ignores metadata sections of type 3 instead of aborting. Additional help with any remaining bugs would be greatly appreciated.

    I’m sorry if everyone got the impression that these unself/readself modifications can, by themselves, “reactivate” your NPDRM content. These are just the first steps in the process. To those who say this is useless because you need act.dat and rif files: unless you can get unencrypted (debug) or easily decrypted (free, demos) PSN content, the only way to get the unencrypted files is by decrypting it with act.dat and the content’s rif file. There are no “crypto fails” here, proper decryption with the true keys is the only way forward. Using the NPDRM algo with the right keys is the only way to decrypt unless you let GameOS do it for you and hook into GameOS to either grab intermediate keys or dump decrypted content. Using hacks to restore the NPDRM decryption info to jailbroken PS3s is only a partial fix. For instance, unless you patch vsh or set the SRTC to some time in the past, some content (even non-demos and non-trials!) expires until you log into PSN and reauthenticate.


    Sorry about your “technical difficulties”, Team PS360. You should L2IRC.

      Thanks to all involved this is awesome ! I am wondering can this activate DLC on my new ps3 ,since i have all my rif files & act.dat from my other ps3 ? I already have the folders made & rif files in exdata was waiting for the chance for psn but if this can activate on my new ps3 by using the act.dat + rifs that would be awesome .all i need is to get my zombie maps on new ps3 & i will never 4 get this - generous gift

      Does anyone know were the EID is located ? Can it be copied to usb with file manager ?

      [MENTION=7746]Kantraz[/MENTION] or you could learn howto use the command line tools, not that hard and youd be more than 1 step ahead of PS360Team and no longer a n00b (partialy)

      Just my 2 cents :P

      [MENTION=163760]ZOMBIEKILLAH[/MENTION] the "eEID splitter" I think is what you're reffering to? It's on the ps3devwiki at the end of the page Lunuxx linked to (HERE).

      Actually, I just noticed it's included in the original download for these NPDRM tools..

      Now the waiting searching / waiting game begins ..

      [MENTION=193016]rewt[/MENTION], And no one remembers any of the tools that gitbrew released? Or the documentation? sad.

      If anyone read the leak that "square" did, idps for cex systems are EASY to get. Hell it's even easier now then it was with those tools.

      [MENTION=32686]zombie[/MENTION], not entirely sure since the idps is usually console specific as well.. you MIGHT be able to but it would require a lot of work to actually get them working (or at least some modifying ) also, lv2patcher + asbestos launcher + a usb drive. Now you can't complain you don't have a usb drive over 1GB since EVERYONE has at least two. That is MORE than enough for linux, also petitboot can load off of usb drives as well. :P

      awesome job none the less glad to see someone is actually reading and not just "bragging". No need to name any names though. :P (not talking about mathieulh either)

      with this you can get the flash.bin and then use norunpack from f0f to extract content eg. eEID...

      I will be completly honest i already have PSN 60+ games already on my new ps3 .
      I just want my cod maps ,for zombies .If it will be that hard to activate on my new ps3 ,i will just hope DUPLEX or a better tool will come out like the XboX dlc unlocker..
      You don't even need to have the dlc tied to your xbox with that tool .. SONY sucks !

      Microsoft lets you get away with murder. Then even xp,vista,win 7 windows users 50% of windows cracked= MS they still give you support/updates ,lol
      Just shows how greedy Sony is !
      Everything for us is much more complicated than xbox ,is why i wanted a jtag to have fun with unlocking zombie maps DLC easy + homebrew as well ..

      I did find some real interesting stuff on wiki about decrypting + act.dat etc

      Thats how you can easily get your console IDPS:

      1) Dump your NOR from GameOS using dump_flash.pkg
      2) Open it in hex editor and search for IDPS using this example - http://www.ps3devwiki.com/index.php?title=IDPS

      Just search for first 8 bytes. For example: 00 00 00 01 00 84 00 09, where '84' is USA target ID and '09' is CECH20A slim motherboard revision).
      It's 16 bytes long and you find it twice. Here's example of my IDPS:



      Also, I compiled unself2, but it throws error when I try decrypt game update eboot: 'Error decrypting metadata: No such file or directory'. But I don't have act.dat from my ps3, maybe this is issue.

      So then, silly question, is this JUST for reactivating NPDRM games, or does it also apply to all the DLC we have as well (Rock Band track packs and such). And if so, would this allow us to copy the .rif and .dat files from other users PS3s and use this activator to allow us to share our DLC amongst ourselves?

      It's for decrypting NPDRM games and dlc. After decrypting you can repack it as free content and it will run on any ps3 without need for act.dat/*.rif and psn activation (like any DUPLEX releases).

      May sound foolish to ask, but is it fine to use my regular external drive with my games on it? As in using this app will not format or damage any of the files stored on this drive?

      no, it just writes a flash binary file on your drive. but there should be a readme with the pkg, so you should read it first. but i can tell you from another user it works with nand...

      Yes, but to do so you need to have already activated DLC. You have to copy eboot.bin, act.dat/*.rif and IDPS from your already activated ps3.

      [MENTION=199860]mckenziesdaddy[/MENTION] I do know this PSN cracked DLC works on a non activated PS3 or activated PS3 either don't matter = after it is cracked it is just like a disc based game =no activation needed !
      this is why cracked dlc has no act.dat ! This is why it is called cracked = No need for a act.dat for those who are wondering ... Kinda like computer software ,key checks are edited out/Removed/Patched .There is no activation key checks to stop the game or software from executing .. Similar & a example..

      actually that is not a stupid question. i think that might be worth a shot. the only thing i could think is that maybee they use their own keys like in the firmware side or something.

      Exactly! It looks like this is what Cobra team was based on some of their works, let's say that they had the idea of the algorythm just some months prior.
      Be sure to NOT delete the pkg file, I smell after this method release they're gonna change something in the contents.

      I downloaded and backed up all of there downloadable files in the hope that something may come of them on a non Cobra System.

      It's kind of obvious that they did something that has atleast to do 95% with this formula of security implementation.
      I wouldnt get surprised either if more stuff from them use security based on this algorythm, like a random guess the Cobra Backup Launcher.(Just an example, most probably it has nothing to do but it's worth the investigation)
      Like in MM before someone tried the PSOne self files how they do react with the new support we would never know that it is possible.
      I'm intrigued...
      Put also on the list that PS2 Classics use that.

      Just so you know & others if you use the dunp.pkg on a slim it took about 5min for me on a NOR 16mb .When you install then execute from XMB = Dont panic you get a black screen the whole time ! Then your PS3 will Restart & the ( Flash.bin ) will be dumped on your usb drive... I am going to do this again on my ps3 that is activated with all my DLC + act.dat & rif files all activated !

      I want to see if there will be anything different cause it is activated with allot of DLC ..

      I assume they buy there games, use there act.dat and IDPS to crack the files then repackage them as usable to everyone.

      From the looks of it, once you take the already activated content for your user. You decrypt it into a form that has NO drm what so ever, and then repackage it with a drm that doesn't have a link to anything. Think of it as giving someone a master key and implemented it directly into the software. So you can install it onto any ps3 and it would just work. (To answer most questions about this, correct me if im wrong). ps360 guys, some of you have admitted to being pirated, yet can't understand this? The hell?

      It's 16 bytes long and you find it twice. Here's example of my IDPS:



      Also, I compiled unself2, but it throws error when I try decrypt game update eboot: 'Error decrypting metadata: No such file or directory'. But I don't have act.dat from my ps3, maybe this is issue.

      Just a quick question.
      With my console IDPS is it theoretically possible to convert cex to dex?
      There was a "tut" month ago. I think the only thing missing was the console specific IDPS?!?!

      They can't do that with all of those games they released.
      It would have been unable for them to enter PSN, Activate them and get those files correct.(In the world of Hacked PS3's speaking)
      They have must done atleast more than ONE method to get these to work, everyone saperatelly.

      To conclude, I BET these should work with Cobra's PSP Manager, PSP Minis, PSOne classics (no need anymore but still worth for knowledge) and PS2 Classics.
      The content type fits the encryption algorythm they use on those specific releases.

      No, you would still need the way to convert it from a cex to a dex. Only sony has that (a sony server). that was leaked and most likely fixed/changed. so it's no longer possible (currently at least)

      I think there is some real good info in the 360 sdk ,but i am not a dev so it would take a while to figure any of it out .Some things could be easy ,i have not really looked all i know it is big sdk & i have it stashed were no internet connections can be made with it ..I don't trust it it may call home with a open connection never know look at the ps3 ?

      If you want to do what DUPLEX does there are a few steps involved (I wont get into it), but anyone can do what they do as long as you know where to look in the decrypted eboot. I'm sure someone will put together a nub friendly tool for all the pirates to go nuts and start raping PSN content. Good thing 99% of the nubs don't know all of the demo DLC download address's

      v2 info:
      Added npdrm magic to unself2 and readself2
      unself2 doesn't like the metadata section with type 3 in my game.
      This section looks to be some kind of linking information. Here is a snippet:

      I dont want to sound like a A$$ cause this is not meant to be ,but i spent $1000s on PSN not including every retail game i bought that adds up to over $4,500 without PSN games & movies etc . It is not about pirating to many of us it is about being blocked & we want what we paid for. Is there something wrong with this ?? Cause i don't see nothing wrong with taking back what is rightfully mine. I am guessing you had never bought anything from PSN ? If you did it sure will not add up to what i spent i can bet on that .

      I don't like getting robbed of my money & i don't think Banks like to get robbed either ! If someone gets robbed of there belongings = They want it back bottom line ! Not meant to be a ass this is the truth & i paid real money !
      Not monopoly money either .. Don't take this the wrong way but i am on fire when i get the feeling that somebody thinks/says we or i want to just pirate these games when my bank statements clearly will be my proof i paid !!

      Not making you my enemy ,but i am quite sick of people referring to everyone a pirate ,it is getting quite old man .. Can we just leave the Bu11$h1t word pirate out of these discussions ? It always leads there & this makes me want to close out the page ! Sorry but this is the truth I know who you are & i know you have done good ,but please understand this we are not all pirates

      I totally agree. Scene progress should be made regardless anyone's moral belief/presumption. It should always be done for the sake of owning Sony's security and do whatever (and I mean it) we want to do to unleash everything we can out of this console just like prior consoles or even current gen consoles (look at X360 scene).

      We all stand for one regardless our differences. Lets not forget that.

      i agree with evilsperm ; for example i bought Agarest Wars from psn and still have the full game plus its rif files but the act.dat "magically" disappeared when i installed an otheros++ enabled cfw.
      So, for all those in a situation similar to mine(no act.dat or rif files) this method is pretty much useless.

      If anybody wants, try that:
      http://www.mediafire.com/?2pl9obuijt8c6dg
      Please give it a shot.
      ISO.BIN.DAT is worth a look, well also the rest of the files.

      PS: If you are curious why on earth would the PARAM.SFO have enabled all Video Modes it's because PS3's PSP emulator runs at 960 x 544 & 2 x MSAA at HD resoltions but the result streches in the first and last 4 fields when using 1080p and in 720p it uses a different supersampling method that warps no pixel fields.
      Different implementations/ideas also in the rest resolutions, with a big exception in 50Hz modes since PSP can't run (at all) to anything else that an exact multiple of 30Hz.
      PSP emulator can't do a pulldown correctly so I advice using anything 60Hz mode, otherwise, you'll notice some stuttering or slowdowns that are not normal at all.

Yes, I'm taking them to court over it for either my account restored or a full refund. I estimate it at about $25,000+

      Anyway, I did backup my HDD over FTP so I have all the files. I just dont like copying over the act.dat file everytime I reboot just so I can have my LBP theme running.
      If someone could do that one theme for me thats all I want. I have all the files just not sure how to compile it so it removes the protection.

      Oh, I upgraded my HDD so i had to format and now the system doesn't recognize the new HDD so it refuses to keep the act.dat and it gets deleted on each reboot. If there was a way to keep the act.dat and not have it deleted that would be even better then I can play all my PSN games and downloads without editing each and every one.

      Thx for nathan's compiled files.
      I tried unself2 but get an error

      priv file: /home/XXXX/.ps3//app-priv-356 (ERROR)

      you need these two files

      app-priv-102f

      app-priv-356

      I don't know where to get them.

      I don't think these 2 files is necessary.
      When I succeed in depcypting disc game EBOOT, it also has these errors.
      I think I miss something else.

      how to make a idps file?
      I make a txt file and copy "00000001008E0006" in it and save the txt file.
      Then i rename the tct file to "idps".
      Is that right?

      The IDPS file must be a raw binary file like all of the other key files. One way of creating it would be by typing your IDPS into a hex editor. Careful about posting your IDPS: Sony likely remembers who has what IDPS.

      No offense taken. Can you use gdb or add some printf to the npdrm functions to see what the exact problem is? I'm interested in hearing your other ideas. I prefer IRC for development over forums. I hang out in gitbrew's #otheros. There are lots of knowledgeable people there and they allow connections from Tor. If I'm not in the channel, just shout my name. I have really good hearing.

      as long as I can get it to decrypt the eboots

      Won't you need to have bought the GAME/DLC for this to work? And as some DLC might only be available since 3.72 -> You don't have a correct act.dat file -> How are you going to decrypt it? Also why are the names of the PSN game downloads so complex? Are these used to generate the act.dat and rif file or from where are these activation files received, straight from Sony?

      NPDecrypter needs the act.dat and other activation files to work, and is only performable on the PSP that game is activated on.
      It creates a decrypted ISO copy of the original EBOOT.
      Never tried using it on demos, but, it can easily decrypt full PSN PSP games.

      No no no I don't mean that...
      I mean I bypassed the Activation Screen of that launcher on PS3, it doesnt ask you to connect on PSN to activate it, it just launches, but since no PSP game is mounted on PS3, like the user manual suggests before using the launcher, the PSP launcher app just stays idle after you launch it even though PS3 is fully responsive.

      Just search for first 8 bytes. For example: 00 00 00 01 00 84 00 09, where '84' is USA target ID and '09' is CECH20A slim motherboard revision).
      It's 16 bytes long and you find it twice. Here's example of my IDPS:



      Also, I compiled unself2, but it throws error when I try decrypt game update eboot: 'Error decrypting metadata: No such file or directory'. But I don't have act.dat from my ps3, maybe this is issue.
      Thanks for this. One question though, does the string have to start with 00 00 00 01 00, i.e. 00 00 00 01 00 XX 00 XX?

      The reason I ask is that I've dumped the NOR from my CECH2003A rev european slim (which would give me 00 00 00 01 00 85 00 09), but I find no occurances of that complete string. I do however find one occurance of 85 00 09 in the dump.

      The flash.bin dumped is 16777216 bytes. Is this the correct size?

      I'm pretty sure it launches EBOOT.PBP in 'CONTENT' folder, and cobra payload probably use some syscalls to mount your ISO instead. If you managed to launch ISO.BIN.EDAT somehow (which is NPDRM'ed EDAT, and not SELF/EBOOT as many thinks used in PS1/Minis), try replacing EBOOT.PBP with signed PSP demo (Patapon 2, for example).

      Use my tutorial to get PSP launcher to work without the activation screen, even though I doubt they will boot, still it's worth the try.
      Also mind that the game I guess it must have a ''MN'' Data Type in SFO in order to trigger the emulator. Try it with and without that option.
      In my example I tried to use Final Fantasy Type 0 Demo.
      So far it doesn't appear even on XMB...

      Tried that. It won't trigger the game to work since it contains a different game code than the SFO itself... There must be a way I can workaround that. I used Final Fantasy Type 0 demo. I wonder if that works at all with the PSP emulator, if anyone with the dongle could help me test if it works I would send him the converted EBOOT.PBP demo ISO. The launcher should recognise it with no problem.

      What way? You mean snowydew's trick? Dunno, I guess it won't work since I think it makes PS3 think it's a PS3 game. It would work ONLY if the PARAM.SFO contains a Data Type ''MN'' because this field is responsible for PS3 to know that it's a PSP game/Mini and trigger the PSP emulator. Atleast this is my guess

      Hi, my first message in the forum, i think i can help a bit with .sfo stuff

      Vikin KLM, notice the variable ATTRIBUTE can trigger some "special boot parameters" (32 "flags" to be exact)
      http://www.ps3devwiki.com/index.php?...FO#PARAM.SFO_2
      I never looked at PSN content, but i guess there must be some special ones for this

      Either way... "SFO editor v0.8 beta" (the windows version made by hellcat) has a bug that erases the last bytes of the ATTRIBUTE

      Btw... some varables can be addedd or removed, i found some ones, but never looked at PSN content
      http://www.ps3devwiki.com/index.php?...Alphabetically

      I didn't edit the PARAM.SFO, I left it intact, maybe I could prevent it from checking an activation file from making it think it's a PSN Demo or something.
      Also I found your post more usefull to the fact that I found out that there are flags on PARAM.SFO that enable Background Music and Screenshots!
      Also welcome to the forum!

      This is what i thought, when you change the CATTEGORY, the system expects a list of fixed variables inside the param.sfo
      I realized that you can remove someones (like PARENTAL_LEVEL or LICENSE in category HG or DG) and the system loads the content without problems

      But i tried to add SUB_TITLE to an HG & DG and the system ignores this variable completly (but the file works perfect)

      So there is "something" that is controlling what variables are valid in every CATTEGORY

      So, you can remove varibles (i mean not to blank them, but remove completly included header table, etc...)
      SFO editor can do that easy (but remember to check the ATRIBUTE value after the edition, because the program "blanks" the last bytes (so is disabling some of this flags)

      In resume.... if you are changing the CATEGORY you need to "mimic" the rest of the variables for this kind of content

      I never looked at this .sfo so no idea if there are varialbes with hashes, IDs or other "paired" data

      If not PS3 thinks it's a PS3 game, it doesnt trigger a PSP emulator.
      The thing is that PSP games need to get transformed to minis folder and file structure not PS3 game and folder structure. It's a common fault people did/do, myself included.
      AH!
      Note that Angry Birds is not compatible, PS3 freezes!

      The mini's logo does not show up after boot, it just black screens, then returns to XMB.

      One tip when playing with .sfo
      Note that the system stores a copy of the last launched content (param.sfo pic0.png and im not sure if some more) as a "fast access" to this content

      You need to reboot the console and run another content to "refress" the cached files and to "force" the system to load the new (edited or replaced) ones

      It's not the method, it's that IF Angry Birds show up on XMB and after the name it doesnt have that icon/logo, PS3 thinks it's a PS3 game and handles it as a PS3 game.

      It sounds like your close.
      I assume the Cobra PSP emulator is coded to mount PSPISO's from HDD0/PSPISO.
      Shouldn't there need to be a hook and redirect in the firmware somehow to this location?
      I assume this is what the cobra firmware/backup mananger is already doing for all ISO types.
      If the iso.edat.bin is really launching the emulator then you should see a PSP ISO mounted from that location,
      given that the correct redirects are in place.

      I think the .edat encryption is only being used to prevent the file from being manually decrypted.

      Yes but none of the available backup loaders can mount an ISO file plus even if they don't I don't know which syscalls it uses. If you successfully mount a game instead of a NO GAME icon the gane's icon should appear on the Launcher. Also I found out that the launcher is a homebrew Minis tittle/app... (TOIN)
      Ok now I have seen everything...

      The Cobra backup manager and or firmware together can do this, correct?
      If so its possible somehow...

      Not so sure about the icon appearing correctly meaning that the game is mounted.
      Its easy to create any installation/launch point with any icon or pics using an eboot of your choice or a properly created application pkg.
      The system will follow the parameters of a valid SFO regardless of the app or game data present.

      I assumed that the EBOOT.PBP is the emulator.
      Removing it would remove the emulator.
      If that's correct and even if its not it might mean editing the boot.bin to load the game files from some other hard coded location.

      If using the SFO with the the MV switch is all that is takes to trigger the InternalPS3 emu then what RikuKH3 suggested should work.
      You should be able to change the EMU's SFO ContentID (game code) to match the PSP game.
      Recreate the PSPemu package, install it and there should be no more complaints about the ContentID not matching the install point for that game.

      I wish I could reproduce or test any of this. I wont be able too for a few more days...

      I'm not capable of doing such thing.
      I'm not such an advanced user!
      I can provide though the fully decrypted and extracted EBOOT.PBP that this launcher has inside if you want me to.
      I would love if somebody could help me!
      Note that every EBOOT.PBP must be SIGNED not UNSIGNED like homebrew.
      I'm pretty sure this is one of the reasons why most people fail getting to work games like Angry Birds using this Launcher.
      Obviously, they downloaded a warez ISO from a random site which comes from a signed EBOOT.PBP. This ISO apart from unsigned (ISOs are always unsigned) in order to function they use patches, which cause the emulator to hang.
      If anyone wants to play a game they don't own or it's a PSN demo in EBOOT.PBP format they should convert the untouched PBP file to ISO.
      75% of the games around the net are patched for M33 which is incompatible with this emulator and 80% of them may say that they are untouched but in reality they contain some minor changes to the SFO and the BOOT.BIN files so they can be launced on a completelly unmodded (OFW) PSP, which are also incompatible.

      Couple questions though.

      Is the act.dat essential? I couldn't seem to find it in my extdata folder.

      How can we tell if the EBOOT has been decrypted successfully,
      Will Cygwin output a .elf/.self without it being decrypted properly?
      (I ask because I've seen it output one while giving errors & also at another time claim an outputted .self is not a self)

      Can somebody provide an example of the param.sfo used in "PSPmini" and "PS2classic" when the content is installed ?
      I mean... not the param.sfo insde the .pkg .... but the one that is placed in HDD after the installation
      If somebody wants to help use a private message to send the files, because i have no idea if there is private (or per-console) info there

      This can help to "mimic" (or tweak) this kind of content... and to document more variables, categories, ATTRIBUTE flags, etc...



      Btw... "PSPminis" category is "MN" right ?... but what happen with "PS2classics" ?
      There must be another category for them (asociated with different variables) and an asociated icon like the photo of the pspminis icon that VIRGIN KLM uploaded
      PS2classics = category "CL" ???? (just especulation)

      If VIRGIN KLM theory is correct (and i believe it is) this CATEGORY will be needed to trigger the PS2 emulator

      Duplex didn't buy their psn content. They used the official demo of the psn game, installed it, decrypted the npdrm eboot using the free key. And then just patched the demo to crack it to the full version. Unlike 360 xbla though they all have to be done individually though there isn't a specific byte that will unlock all games. What mallory released will let you do this too.

      PS2 Classics do NOT trigger any emulator.
      They come bundled with a specialized emulator self optimized for each game.
      The important resources are missing from 3.55's FW SDK so PS3 has no idea what these games are so they show up as Corrupted Data and we can't fix that.
      It's a feature we won't bring on 3.55 ever.

      wondering why, if it was that simple, duplex did not release like a whole bunch (like recent 10) of PSN content yet.

      according to your post, not much ressource/time is required to accomplish that.
      (legit ps3 / sniffing demo url)
      and since scene is all about "1st", one could expect that of a scene grp.

      No, Don't get me wrong. I wasn't saying it was trivial or easy. They still have to figure out the key and figure out the algorithm to decrypt the npdrm eboots. That involves way more than I know. I'm saying I looked at the decrypted demos eboots and the duplex releases and that's what they did. Usually just changing one opcode, a nop here, or a bne to beq etc. Also if you open up their install pkg in their releases you can clearly see it is installing the official psn demo of the game. Then they install cracked demo eboot that the decrypted from the demo and re/patched. At least the ones I looked at.

      Yeah, It's that the posts I did, quote after quote evolved from ontopic to kind of offtopic. I started to guess that people were getting mislead but it was kind of late, I'm sorry for that too. I actually tried the tools on it and if I didn't have used them I would have never guessed that there are different kinds of EDAT algorythms.(PS3,PS1/2 Classics,PSP) 3 different types of algorythms (All very close though). Thank to the different kind of errors I recieved with these tools, I got led to find out that this one is a PSP algorythm EDAT that is already defeated (Used on mimis and DLCs). Followed a tutorial and tada, it worked.
      My guess is that with a change those tools could completelly decrypt those files too, it seems to understand what's going on inside them but it fails on some stuff I'm not aware of...

      Late or Early depending on what part of the world your on...
      ...sometimes its hard to tell early morning from late evening...
      I like the process more than anything, these new discoveries have brought fresh air to the scene.
      I wont do IRC or Chat and don't really want to completely leave the scene, sometimes tho the BS is just too much.
      Respectable forums are all I have, but I can do just fine on my own.

      This "iso.edat.bin" is interesting in that the PS3 apparently does not reject it outright or ask for a license.
      I have the original XAI demo... its a license locked demo... so I want to compare this "defeated" one with the original.
      I am also curious to know if the license rejection is coming from the edat or the eboot.pbp
      My guess is that the edat is at least used to pass license and decryption information about the eboot.pbp.
      The MV SFO might be triggering the built-in emu its very hard to tell.
      I have experimented with the XAI demo in the distant past but couldn't do anything with it.
      Again most anything can be packaged, look and sound pretty, even appear to run but really its not doing anything special at all.
      It will be a few days before I can look at any of this.

      I know that. And the code is really comprehensive as it's written in C#.NET and has good comments in the code. I tought you could use unpkg the same way as PSP_PS3_PKG_Decrypter_Extractor_v.1.0.0.0.

      PSP_PS3_PKG_Decrypter_Extractor_v.1.0.0.0 works perfectly.

      unkpg.exe doesn't work for me.

      Why is that? Is it to extract a different type of PKG?

      perror: No such file or directory

      I put all failoverflow keys + the keys in NPDRM stuff in:

      C:\cygwin\home\USER\.ps3

      I did put EBOOT.BIN in:

      C:\cygwin\home\USER

      Yea sorry I got it :-p. I tried another one that doesn't have NPDRM and it works. Thank you guys for your patience.

      BTW Can you also extract ISO.BIN.EDAT files?

      I was going to try to unpack a PKG using these tools instead of PSP_PS3_PKG_Decrypter_Extractor_v.1.0.0.0 and even that doesn't work:

      Or you could just use ungpkg. Unpkg for firmware, etc. Ungpkg for games, etc. It's based on Math's pkg extractor anyways, and handy if you prefer using a quick cmd instead of a gui.
      Works fine for me.

      you can overcome this error by using a batch script and do first as entry:

      @set CYGWIN=nodosfilewarning

      and don't forget to set keys folder first.
      then the message should not appear and you're fine. this is because the f0f tools based on linux/cygwin environment...

      where do you get ipds code from? how do I apply it? And yeah, I get the same when trying to ebootfix "perror" and file or directory dont exist! Also I tried this CFW first on my old FAT 80gig, (LAZER BROKEN) cos i have 2 other ps3 slims and dont want to JB cfw them as i use them to play MW3 and other games online. But thinking i could dig out my old system and put games on a External was great! and so far so good. Except I get this! had enough of messing around! thinking of throwing the FAT in the trash and pushing myself to flash my Slim 160! Is that the root i should take? Is this process useless without a working BR Lazer?

      Please Help?
