To quote: The major addition is a Retail PKG decryption and extraction tool. I also removed the extra tools as it wasn't needed, and wasted space, most external programs are gonna be taken out and be coded so it's internal. That way space, folder size and your Computers memory is more free.

I need to thank math because, this uses his AES engine and without it I would have had to code one on my own. (Don't worry I had his permission). It was truly a pain incorporating this into my program, much harder than the EDAT tools.

Changelog v2.1:

  • Decryption of Retail PKG
  • Extraction of Retail PKG
  • Bug fixes
  • Removed external programs
  • Fixed bugs and added some little features in EDAT tool
  • Doesn't take up as much memory

Also if I can port Rcomage to c# then expect that to be next release, it's hard porting c++ to c# though, but I'm trying, it has alot of code that needs converter.

Thanks to naehwert, KaKaRoToKS, geohot, Math, eussNL and of course Fail0verFlow! and anyone else I forgot.

To quote: CHANGES:

  • Added Dev_flash and Dev_flash3 dumper
  • Removed conf editor
  • Removed space wasting buttons
  • Added other tools section
  • Cleaner GUI
  • No extra tab screen
  • Faster
  • Less memory by about 4mb

BUG FIXES:

  • No more random cmd box popping up.
  • Fixed memory issue
  • Fixed permissions glitch

FEATURES:

  • Can unpack any PS3 firmwares dev_flash.
  • Can unpack any "PS3" Firmware up to date. Gets really fast after first or second use.
  • A console is built into the program showing you the exact log a cmd would.
  • Can Decrypt PS3/PSP retail PKG files (Signed by sony installable via OFW).
  • Can readself of, Appldr, lv0, lv1ldr, lv2ldr, isoldr, EBOOT.BIN or if any of the things that you want to read are not listed on a button you can run a custom command to do it, for example: aim_spu_module.self just type that in where it says input and it will read it. So any file that is possible to use via readself, can be done in a fast manor 1-2 sec.
  • An awesome Core_os_package tool that can decrypt, extract and encrypt the Core_os_package.pkg all in about 1-2 sec.
  • Sign pkg for 3.55 or 3.41
  • UnSELF a file.
  • Build SELF a file.
  • Whenever a tar file is modified, it's permissions need to be set, this tool can do that for you. fix the tar file for the following FW. retail fw up to 3.72, debug fw up to 3.72 and retail and debug fw 4.0.

HOW TO USE:

Lets use a example: If you want to unpack a ps3 update just get the PS3UPDAT.PUP (Don't change the name of any file in ps3 FW keep original) and put in tool folder, run my program click unpack and it will unpack it.

So like if you want to fix tar make sure the update_files.tar stays the same name and put in the main folder where program is located.. same for anyfile keep the original name. So it's pretty simpe just drag the file that you want the tool to do something with and keep the original name.

Here is a video I made (I am pretty bad a videos) to help it' a tutorial that covers everything. If some one else could make a better one that would be awesome. THIS VIDEO IS FOR THE BETA VERSION. STILL HELPFUL





NOTES:

PS3Tools GUI Edition will create two new files for the Core_os_package. "decrypted_core_os" and "CORE_OS_PACKAGE_ENCRYPTED.pkg" don't change the name of the decrypted one or else you won't be able to encrypt it.

The Appldr from 3.60 + firmware has been encapsulated in lv0. So we must first access the lv0 (not yet decrypted). In firmware 3.60-instead appldr is independent of other processes. If you change the system so that the install package files installs games appldr using of the firmware 3.55 (which we know keys), so installing a backup managers, which mounts the boot path of the games and then uses the appldr of the firmware 4.00.

That system uses 2 processes appldr, the 3.55, which installs the homebrew, and appldr (that of the Sony OFW) who starts the game 4.00.

A CFW obtained with a scrum of the various self of the core_os (4.00 and 3.55) but with a bit of reprogramming, so that uses two processes, depending on the function

BETA Tester Thoughts: Tested by jhax78

All those command line tools that takes loads of time and sometimes commands that you need to understand will be replaced by this 1 click tool, even a trained monkey could extract repack sign with this now.. it's taking literally 3 seconds to extract a pup resign or whatever you need to do.

I'm no dev but like to poke around in stuff and i think more ppl think like this with this tool all that is just peanuts now.
