To quote: To jump right into it, I have added a lot into this version. RCO dumper SFO reader and a whole new GUI form and GUI improvements.

When the program first loads, you're going to be opted to choose the GUI, well remember the original GUI for the main screen? Well I added a new one that took out the Command prompt emulator, made the form smaller and sleeker.

Once you choose the GUI you want it will take you too the specific form, but wait, you want to use the other GUI after your done with your first selection? Well I though of that and instead of having it close after selection it stay's alive until you're done!

Changes:

  • SFO READER
  • Dump category_friend.rco
  • Dump category_game.rco
  • Dump category_music.rco
  • Dump category_network.rco
  • Dump category_photo.rco
  • Dump category_psn.rco
  • Dump category_sysconf.rco
  • Dump category_tv.co
  • Dump category_user.rco
  • Dump category_video.rco
  • Added loading bar on both GUI
  • Added dialogs to see completion
  • Add messageboxes for errors and PUP completion
  • Fixed minor bugs
  • Fixed Core_os image reader tool

Side Note: All RCO's that are dumped will be shown in the RCO folder.

To quote: This is a collection of tools for use with the files from the Ps3 and it’s games. This contains many tools, none of which I developed! I simply collected them and put a GUI to them to make it easier to use for those of us running OsX. This has been tested on 10.8-10.9.3

Tools found in this collection are: Scetool, FailOverFl0w’s tools, Reself, Make_npdata, ps2classic, ps3isotool, fixEBOOT and a few more. So thanks to all who contributed time in developing these tools including but not limited to: flatz , IngPereira , LoOzers, aldostools , baargle , fail0verfl0w, Graf _chokolo, MAGiC333X, naehrwert.

This will help you decrypt and encrypt files, unpkg .pkg’s, explore firmwares, create .pkg files and manage your games and a few more things. Make sure to click the Read_Me button first to install the necessary files to make the tool run correctly.

It will also help you install the keys and all the proper files i.e.: /exdata, act.dat, idps… to ensure that everything runs correctly. Once again thanks to all who have contributed to the scene and I hope that this will help a few people out who run OsX! Enjoy!

Today developer PsDev has updated PS3Tools GUI Edition v2.0 to version 2.1, which now includes PlayStation 3 Retail PKG decryption and extraction.

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.

Can this decrypt 3.6+ eboots? If so then we can start making our own 3.55 eboots.

Following up on his previous release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer PsDev has updated PS3Tools GUI Edition to version 2.0 which now incorporates the PS3 EDAT Tools with the complete changelog detailed below.

To quote: I collaborated now listen, PsDev back with the brand new edition. Yes, yes. Me and SnowyDew have collaborated and I added his magnificant tools to mine It was a struggle getting it to execute properly, but I finally got rid of all the errors and combined them for the best experience.

  • Changes, Decrypt and Re-encrypt edat's successfully
  • iso.bin.edat extraction
  • Decrypt eboot.pbp's / eboot.bins for further game modifiying
  • Decryption of act.dat and rif keys
  • Print coreos image info

Snowydew: so the decryption as it stands right now, an do iso.bin.edat, requires idps, rif and act.dat for the games. re-encryption i believe it needs the “fake” signed ones, as well as an idps (not sure on the idps) however the second method only requires the idps and the .rap file. this does not cover licenseing games i believe (It could, but we haven’t tested it) the re-encryption algo is in the encryption one, but again haven’t been able to test it completely (reason I was asking around on twitter awhile back)

Thanks to naehwert, snowydew, KaKaRoToKS, geohot, math and any one else I forgot.

Finally, in related news today belioc has leaked what he claims are some PlayStation 3 Lv0 Opcodes (below) and has credited PsDev for them, as stated below:

Although I am leaking this, I am still gonna give credit to who got these, that is PsDev. OpCodes (Operation codes) are the operation to be performed in a instruction set of the processor.

Here are the lv0 operation codes. A lot are unknown so it's really hard to say what function they're doing, but the function offset is provided. When I recieved the file it has about 10MB of NOP (No operation performed) about 1MB of operations being performed.

First Set:

Second Set:

Shortly afterwards, PsDev stated the following rebuttal though: Lol this is false, me and naehwert talked it over the opcodes are just a reading that is false due to the lv0 being encrypted. the BL is what decrypt the lv0. How would I dissemble a encrypted lv0?

Haha last time I share something that could have potential (it don't) with someone.

Just run the lv0 in a DisArm decoder (don't have to be DisArm) it will bot the self and tell the opcodes (that are false).

Thanks naehwert. Good bye.
