To quote: It's about time for another update to my program, this time around I added a scetool section. It has 3 new options with one favorite thanks to andreus for a script that I use, I also update the SFO Reader tool and fix some bugs. See official changelog below.
PS3Tools GUI Edition v3.2 Changes:
Just to elaborate some on the auto EBOOT.BIN re-signer, just put the 3.60 EBOOT.BIN in the root of folder run the tool it will decrypt it and re-sign it for use on lower Firmware.
- Added scetool section
- Show curent keylist
- Decrypt EBOOT.BIN up to 3.60
- Decrypt and resign EBOOT.BIN automatically
- Fixed SFOREADER bug
- When ever you get a output it autp copys to clipboard
- Minor bug fixes through out program to make it run a little more fluently.
Note: Dropping a SPRX file and clicking decrypt will not decrypt it, nor error out, but report success and magically delete the SPRX file from the folder it was in.
Soon after the 3.2 release, he released 3.3 (via psx-scene.com/forums/content/releases-2479/), but claims it will be his final update, and the source code will be also released in the near future. To quote:
It has been fun making this program, it has gone threw 12 awesome updates. I'm sad to stop working on it, but I'm happy to see what you guys can continue to make it into. I will release the source code, but not today.
Lets leave that for another time and focus on this release. This is also the most stable version, all features have been tested not only by me but other people too, (Dcnigma, Industerialcode) and all features work properly.
v3.3 Final Changes:
There is a new way that the file system works. There is a individual folder for all the tools (PUP Tools, scetool, Core_os Tool ect) And when you want to use the tool just place the file in the correct folder and use the GUI. This system is cleaner and allows me to not use as much code.
- SCETool v0.28 added
- New keys added to keyset
- New script for EBOOT resigning
- New file system layout
- Removed do it button
- Now everytime you select a option from one of the drop down menu it does that option right away
- Removed SELF tool
- Every option has its individual message box completion of operation
There is a script in the scetool folder called fix. This script is what can be edited to your standards for the EBOOT resigning. I did this so if you want to sign for 3.41 ect or change compression or anything just edit the script and run the GUI no need for new update, much more efficient.
There is no more "Do It" button, since I change the way the files are modified I thought I will just make every option a button it self, is when you click the option you like from the drop down menu it will do the operation. Note: After click may take a sec for the operation to start be patient.
FOR /F "tokens=1,2 delims= " %%A IN ('scetool.exe -i EBOOT.BIN') DO (
if [%%A]==[ContentID] set CID=%%B
scetool.exe --decrypt EBOOT.BIN EBOOT.ELF
rename EBOOT.BIN ORIGINAL_EBOOT.BIN > NUL
scetool.exe --sce-type=SELF --compress-data=FALSE --skip-sections=TRUE --key-revision=0A --self-auth-id=1010000001000003 --self-add-shdrs=TRUE --self-vendor-id=01000002 --self-type=NPDRM --self-fw-version=0003005500000000 --np-license-type=FREE --np-content-id=%CID% --np-app-type=EXEC --np-real-fname=EBOOT.BIN --encrypt EBOOT.ELF EBOOT.BIN
