    PS3 CFW Folder Checker Homebrew App and Source Code Arrive

    Sponsored Links
    This weekend PlayStation 3 developer PsDev has released a homebrew application called PS3 CFW Folder Checker along with the source code as well, followed by Check_PKG and HashCalc by eminem451 with details below.

    Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] by eminem451

    From the included ReadMe file: Just place the .exe file in your flash drive where you have your folders and cfw setup run it and it will tell you if there is a typo, the foldername correct, the pup name correct and then if so it tell you your ready to go.

    Took me 5 min.

    From eminem451 also comes Check_PKG (linked above), who states the following:

    Hi, a quick tool to check if your PKG is not altered. This will verify a single PKG file or a whole directory.

    Options:

    There are x86 and x64 version in the zip, use the one you need.
    • check_pkg: only return a code (0 = OK, anything else = ERROR), more usefull for dev using other app calling it.
    • check_pkg_dbg: same as "check_pkg" but outputs messages.
    • check_pkg_dbgc: same as check_pkg_dbg but PAUSES after any errors when checking directory and has a progress bar, better of the 3 releases for common user.

    Check_pkg_dbgc is recommended for common user. Use this after downloading a PKG to be sure it is not corrupted.

    Update: I updated my software, it now handles debug PKG better, and can check ECDSA signature from retails one.

    HashCalc

    Hi, I made a little app (linked above) to calculate hash from files. i limited it to a few algo for this edition, let me know what you think of it.

    Info: Drag and drop file on it will save time.
    • If you are on win8.1, right click on hashcalc.exe, unlock.
    • This app handle mode than 200 hashing algos; i locked it for this edition (SHA3, MD6, BLAKE...), making it easier for everyone.
    • With this app, you can compute MD5 or SHA1 of any files, it may help you checking PUP's MD5 for example.

    HMAC is available on full version, tell me if you need it.

    Info: Not all algos are listed alphabetically, it's normal, i sort them myself, sometimes alphabetically and sometimes by genre, there is no problems with it.

    On 21/12/2014, removed French version, removed X64 Version, this way, there only is one version. A few bug fixed.

    Version 1.1.3: Unlocked PS Debug PKG Hash, there are many hashes in debug PKGs, first one is stored at offset 0x80, use my app with this algo and set size to 0x80, check then hash in file at offset 0x80, if it matches, PKG is OK, else it wasnt built correctly or was altered.

    I noted that, debug PKG made by proper tools (SDK ones) have good hashes, a few others, i think made by that ugly python script dont. Any PKG made by make_pkg_npdrm (official) has these hashes correct.

    EAHash Unlocked too, a md5 derivation used in some game saves.

    Update 1.1.3 Changelog:
    • Added PS3 Debug PKG Hash algo, EAHash, and a few UI bug fixes.

    What a ridiculous ploy to get twitter followers. Is he really that needy?

    Well, I hoped there'll be at least some CRC/MD5 checks on the CFW versions, so the user wouldn't occasionally install OFW... Oh well, pathetic

    its not really that great app, plus if you place a OFW, it tells that CFW is there, no checking of actual files has been done.

    I really can't believe on what RealPsDev wasting they his time (even if it is 5min lol), pointless app that we don't need and now someone will say *you should be grateful* and i am but not with something like this.

    He even posted thread on how to dump LV0 but of course, others have to do it but no Dev who thinks he knows how.. basically same as math's walkthrough.

    sorry if this sound disrespectful but we all hoping.

    100%. IIRC, some dev had an app that cheks Update.pup for the version.

    If someone really needs this, anyone can write such app for path checks and identifying CFW version, even me (just say so, it's half an hour job in any programming language, except assembler ).

    But I really do not get involved in this, because I can see this PsDev tweeting over the world that I've stolen his "idea", etc, etc, all this PS3 scene drama, you know the drill.

    you can already get the code for it on MFW source. Not really that hard to integrate it to this, but anyway it's pointless.
