[Answered] PS3 hacking questions
Hello all, thanks for stopping by on this post.
I'm new to PS3 hacking but I wanted to get a few things straight before I start off messing around.
1. Does it go like this, PKG -> EBOOT -> SELF -> ELF (ELF being the the decrypted form)
2. Is it possible to actually put your own executable code in a modded retail PKG and make it run?
3. Is #2 possible on a retail PS3 without using a dev console?
4. I heard at around 2.8 there was added support to stop PKG editing, does this mean it is best to try on a firmware before that?
It does, except an EBOOT == a SELF , just renamed.
No, you can not - best bet is to use a DEV console to make a DEV package with your own code - you can not modify a retail package.
What was done was HDD editing of the installed packages actually, they added some additional DRM checks to ensure you actually installed the item.
Haha, thank you so much.
