[Answered] Signing elf with ebootMOD's make_self to run over OFW help?
hi! I wish to inform you that the elf can be signed to an EBOOT.BIN with the make_self.exe of ebootFIX/ebootMOD. make_self_npdrm.exe by geohot and makeself.exe by fail0verflow don't work for me.
I mean running without packaging. the makeself by fail0verflow and the make_self by ebootMOD seems to make the same output but the second one seem to cut an entirely section (near the end). So the question for you is: "signing elf with ebootMOD's make_self can make an executable run over a OFW?" I mean... putting it on a BD...
so this bring me to the second question: "what's the difference between an original game and a 1:1 copy of that media!?" I wish to know that from when I was 10 and nobody still haven't answer me yet I often heard that's something relative to TOC and the code of the producer of the media but I wish to know something more specific

about first question if you put a signed eboot, as you said, into a BD, it doesn't work because bd drive seeks some information concerning system protection that a bd copy cannot give. In order to make it working you should patch the firmware of the bd drive, fw contained into original fw you usually use when you update your ps3. About it I read recently someone was trying to patch it, but so far nothing is known about how it ended.
About second question an original game bd contains two protections, one concerning the disc you cannot emulate, the other concerning eboot signed with keys of the fw that you can replicate with the tools and keys today available.
