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!

Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer PsDev has updated PS3Tools GUI Edition to version 1.1B adding a Dev_Flash dumper as outlined in the changlog below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

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.
