A quick update tonight with a few more details about the upcoming Eboot.bin Dumper utility. It dumps the Eboot.bin from your original PS3 Game disc, and strips the disc layer of encryption, so it is a less-encrypted SELF.
The program is simple to use: first install the package to a TEST/TOOL PS3. Then insert a memory stick in the PS3 and run the program. Upon completion, remove the memory stick and read it in a PC.
You now have an EBOOT.BIN that is void of the disc layer of encryption! There are still a few add-ons that can be made such as dumping to a PC, however that may be done down the road. Below is a picture of the BETA version of the XMB info screen for the utility.
Furthermore, we have noticed it's a bit easier to dump some of the system memory via GDB than our own custom code.
Why? Well check back on that, but we have already found a decrypted
sprx in memory, and that was only after a few seconds of looking.. so some good things are to come soon!
