From the included ReadMe file: Just place the .exe file in your flash drive where you have your folders and cfw setup run it and it will tell you if there is a typo, the foldername correct, the pup name correct and then if so it tell you your ready to go.

From eminem451 also comes Check_PKG (linked above), who states the following:

Hi, a quick tool to check if your PKG is not altered. This will verify a single PKG file or a whole directory.

There are x86 and x64 version in the zip, use the one you need.

  • check_pkg: only return a code (0 = OK, anything else = ERROR), more usefull for dev using other app calling it.
  • check_pkg_dbg: same as "check_pkg" but outputs messages.
  • check_pkg_dbgc: same as check_pkg_dbg but PAUSES after any errors when checking directory and has a progress bar, better of the 3 releases for common user.

Check_pkg_dbgc is recommended for common user. Use this after downloading a PKG to be sure it is not corrupted.

Update: I updated my software, it now handles debug PKG better, and can check ECDSA signature from retails one.

HashCalc

Hi, I made a little app (linked above) to calculate hash from files. i limited it to a few algo for this edition, let me know what you think of it.

Info: Drag and drop file on it will save time.

  • If you are on win8.1, right click on hashcalc.exe, unlock.
  • This app handle mode than 200 hashing algos; i locked it for this edition (SHA3, MD6, BLAKE...), making it easier for everyone.
  • With this app, you can compute MD5 or SHA1 of any files, it may help you checking PUP's MD5 for example.

HMAC is available on full version, tell me if you need it.

Info: Not all algos are listed alphabetically, it's normal, i sort them myself, sometimes alphabetically and sometimes by genre, there is no problems with it.

On 21/12/2014, removed French version, removed X64 Version, this way, there only is one version. A few bug fixed.

Version 1.1.3: Unlocked PS Debug PKG Hash, there are many hashes in debug PKGs, first one is stored at offset 0x80, use my app with this algo and set size to 0x80, check then hash in file at offset 0x80, if it matches, PKG is OK, else it wasnt built correctly or was altered.

I noted that, debug PKG made by proper tools (SDK ones) have good hashes, a few others, i think made by that ugly python script dont. Any PKG made by make_pkg_npdrm (official) has these hashes correct.

EAHash Unlocked too, a md5 derivation used in some game saves.

Update 1.1.3 Changelog:

  • Added PS3 Debug PKG Hash algo, EAHash, and a few UI bug fixes.

I figured as much based on what I've read thus far, but Thanks for the confirmation Tidusnake666 and +Rep!

Yep Boss, it's a generic encrypter, there are tons of these around net, nothing PS3-specific here.

As this is our current thread for PsDev developments I will leave this here for the moment... it appears to be a generic file decrypter/encrypter and not anything PS3-specific so I won't mainpage it, but those who want to check it out can do so.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (required)

Below are the details from the ReadMe file via psx-scene.com/forums/content/crypter-tools-released-1743/:

This can package of tools can encrypt and decrypt any file type, you can use you own key so no one can decrypt it. Unless they know the key.

The USAGE:

Encrypter:

Decrypter:

Note -- if the file has and extension on it ex: example.txt, you must add the .txt.

The Decrypter will say it was decrypted succesfully but if you did not enter the right key you will get a file damage error.

Yeah Math is holding his hand though so you can be pretty sure that won't lead anywhere.
