Guide to Compile PSN NPDRM Games for PS3 Custom Firmware


Sponsored Links
159w ago - Following up on the previous PSN game decryption news, today mallory has made available the PS3Tools NPDRM source code for reactivating PSN content followed by a brief guide from the included ReadMe file below for PS3 Custom Firmware users.

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] and [Register or Login to view links] (Compiled by nathanr3269) / [Register or Login to view links] by granberro

From the included PS3Tools NPDRM ReadMe file:

Based off of gitbrew's 215d8903bc86539ca1da53519e2ac10eeafc4c27 ps3tools. .git folder not included to protect senstive info about the author. Sorry about the messed up tabs, TAB = 4 SPACES 4 LYFE!!!

  • Add the files in the npdrm_keystuff folder to your ps3 keys folder.
  • Create a file with your console's 16 byte IDPS in the 'idps' file in your ps3 keys folder (e.g. ~/.ps3/idps).
  • Copy your PS3's exdata folder containing your act.dat and rif files to your ps3 keys dir (e.g. ~/.ps3/exdata/act.dat). Compile and have fun with your LEGALLY purchased NPDRM games!
  • Also works on free games without exdata/idps.

Apologies for any existing bugs in unself. Adding these changes to unself2 is left as an exercise for the reader.

Thanks:

  • fail0verflow for the orginal tools
  • JuanNadie for figuring out NPDRM
  • euss for his endless hours of work on the wiki

Why didn't you beat me to the punch, Team PS360? I didn't need to reverse a single instruction! It isn't that hard...

v2 info:

  • Added npdrm magic to unself2 and readself2
  • unself2 doesn't like the metadata section with type 3 in my game.
  • This section looks to be some kind of linking information. Here is a snippet: crt0190002crt1190002libaudio_stub190002libaudio_stub190002

I haven't yet looked around to see if this is type of section is documented anywhere.

v3 info:

Unself2 now ignores metadata sections of type 3 instead of aborting. Additional help with any remaining bugs would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sorry if everyone got the impression that these unself/readself modifications can, by themselves, "reactivate" your NPDRM content. These are just the first steps in the process. To those who say this is useless because you need act.dat and rif files: unless you can get unencrypted (debug) or easily decrypted (free, demos) PSN content, the only way to get the unencrypted files is by decrypting it with act.dat and the content's rif file.

There are no "crypto fails" here, proper decryption with the true keys is the only way forward. Using the NPDRM algo with the right keys is the only way to decrypt unless you let GameOS do it for you and hook into GameOS to either grab intermediate keys or dump decrypted content. Using hacks to restore the NPDRM decryption info to jailbroken PS3s is only a partial fix.

For instance, unless you patch vsh or set the SRTC to some time in the past, some content (even non-demos and non-trials!) expires until you log into PSN and reauthenticate. Sorry about your "technical difficulties", Team PS360. You should L2IRC.

Finally, from granberro comes PS3Tools NPDRM PKG Tools Fix V2 (npdrm-fix_v2) which includes changes, as follows:

I'd like to share with you my fork of failoverfl0w and geohot tools. I have fixed some bugs on fl0w tools and added all NPDRM stuff as well as mallory did.

What's different then?

  • unself (unself2 should not skip type 3 section IMHO) is able to save the key/iv used to encrypt the NPDRM and patch the eboot.elf for 3.41 consoles.
  • make_self_npdrm2 is able to encrypt elfs with the key/iv extracted by unself and, theoretically being accepted by OFW>3.55

With those tools, I've been able to "downgrade" LBP2 updates 1-4 and install them on a CFW 3.41.

Here are some more releases from non-official persons, but working fine.

Release: Silent Hill.PSN.PS3
Platform: PS3
Size: 295 MB
Group: N/A

Silent Hill is a survival horror video game for the PlayStation and the first installment in the Silent Hill series. Published by Konami and developed by Team Silent, a Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo group, the game was released in North America in January 1999, and in Japan and Europe later that year. Silent Hill uses a third-person view, with real-time 3D environments. To mitigate limitations of the hardware, developers liberally used fog and darkness to muddle the graphics. Unlike earlier survival horror games that focused on protagonists with combat training, the player character of Silent Hill is an "everyman".

The game follows Harry Mason as he searches for his missing adopted daughter in the series' multiverse, which consists of alternate dimensions based on the series' eponymous fictional American town; stumbling upon a cult conducting a ritual to revive a deity it worships, he discovers her true origin. Five game endings are possible, depending on actions taken by the player, including one joke ending.

Install note:
1.Copy files to FAT32 USB Key/USB Disk
2.Install Silent Hill.pkg
3.Install Fix UP9000-NPUJ00707_00-FIX0000000000000.pkg
4.run it from xmb and enjoy in this great classic hit!!

Release: Guilty.Gear.PSN.PS3
Platform: PS3
Size: 187 MB
Group: N/A
Guilty Gear is set in 2D, similar to Street Fighter and The King of Fighters, but is fast-paced and focuses more on the use of combo techniques. The game features 10 characters and three hidden characters. It uses a six-button layout: Punch, Kick, Slash, H-Slash, Dust and Respect. Combat is one-on-one set in best-two-out-of-three rounds.

It uses a "tension" gauge, akin to Street Fighter Alpha's Super Combo techniques, in which characters can input certain commands and activate special-moves called Chaos Attacks. It also features an air-combo system, comparable to Marvel vs. Capcom's "Aerial Rave", allowing combos to be performed on airborne opponents.

Guilty Gear features instant kill techniques called Destroy Attacks, that can be activated after a Murder Outbreak attack successfully lands on an opponent, effectively ending the match.

The game also has a feature called Chaos Mode that is activated when a character's health is at the half-way point (yellow bar). A red aura will surround the character and he/she is able to perform unlimited Chaos Attacks

Install note:
1.Copy files to FAT32 USB Key/USB Disk
2.Install Guilty Gear.pkg
3.Install EP4037-NPEF00060_00-GGUILTYGEAFIXENG.pkg
4.run from XMB and enjoy in another classic!

Release: Crash.Bandicoot.PSX.PSN
Platform: PS3
Size: 468 MB
Group: N/A

In the tradition of great 3-D action jumping games, Crash Bandicoot is probably the PlayStation equivalent of the groundbreaking Nintendo 64 title Super Mario 64. Now repackaged as one of PlayStation's Greatest Hits, this top-selling game takes you away on a tropical island adventure that is filled with precarious enemies and challenging levels. Our spiky-haired hero Crash needs no weapons to survive the harsh jungle. Instead, he jumps, jogs, and spins his way through numerous lush and downright fun environments.

With 26 levels spanned across three tropical islands, Crash Bandicoot is sure to amuse old gamers as well as new. Crash must rescue his girlfriend, Tawna, from the evil clutches of Dr. Cortex. Along the way, he can gather fruit for extra lives, smash boxes for random prizes, and gather tokens that can be used for bonus rounds. Numerous big bosses block your path, which also includes more than a few risky jumps that require split-second timing. Crash Bandicoot's impressive graphics and strong gameplay have already won over many hard-core and casual gamers. While this PlayStation classic has already spawned two successful sequels, the original version remains a worthy purchase--particularly at the sub-$20 price.

Install note:
1. Copy files to FAT32 USB Key/USB Disk
2. Install PGA5yT6jn7idW1Eq58oGboyYhxg952ja38ThmBcbCD742gfjt4LFM4KLKOPQcbJ6H1OW1nDASSV2KiCVFaBspHBKOphbJMTm4YsrQ.pkg

Release: Resident Evil 2 DualShock Version
Platform: PS3
Size: 759 MB
Group: N/A

Resident Evil 2, known as Biohazard 2 in Japan, is a survival horror video game originally released for the PlayStation in 1998. Developed by Capcom as the second installment in the Resident Evil series, its story takes place two months after the events of the first game, Resident Evil. It is set in Raccoon City, a Midwestern American mountain community whose residents have been transformed into zombies by the T-virus, a biological weapon developed by the pharmaceutical company Umbrella. In their escape from the city, the two protagonists, Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield, encounter other survivors, and are confronted by William Birkin, the mutated creator of the even more powerful G-virus, a variation of the T-Virus. As usual all credit to EXEtrimALL.
