    Since nobody has done this before i decided to do it myself. basically scetool is a much better frontend than the fail0verflow tools, and i wanted to use it on pupexplode instead of the regular tools. but Sony left some 0 byte self/sprx on their PUPs (probably links to other selfs), so i got myself into wondering how i could bypass that issue, since scetool would segfault when trying to decrypt nothing. so i just decided to make _read_buffer return NULL when the size of the file would be 0 and when decrypting the file, if it was NULL, it’d just error out instead of trying to decrypt.

    This is my own version. @deroad has another, but i figured i would make an attempt at coding myself.

    here you can see the code:

    Thanks zecoxao and deroad :)

      Perhaps this should be front paged

      no need to frontpage. i'm having issues with it. it works fine in pupexplode, but i don't know why, it doesn't work when individually tested

      edit: nevermind, you're ok to post it. i'm guessing that these old firmware ros that i have here have really old keys and formats that scetool doesn't accept. most recent firmwares accept it fine

      So it works fine in pupexplode, but it doesn't work when individually tested?, you mean per key?.

      2 bugs I found.
      1) Meta info IV is not properly displayed.
      2) Game Spu selfs are not correctly rebuilded, like this one: rawspu_gcmdraw_spu.self
      np_klicensee=55DD480A0C0C56F84F8A2D01E03D5BDF

      that's probably not related with what i did, since i only changed util.cpp and main.cpp, and very few lines of code in them. i'm guessing those bugs already existed in other versions of scetool.
