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.

Finally in related news, following up on his previous revisions today nevik has made available [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] (Windows) stating the following:

If you repack any .PKG with they will install on 4.11 DEX. I have had a great deal of fun learning TCL TK and some python to try and make this tool as easy to use as possible for those who don't want to install Macports. Read README and how to use included.

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!

hmmm... to be short



its not really that great app, plus if you place a OFW, it tells that CFW is there, no checking of actual files has been done.
100%. IIRC, some dev had an app that cheks Update.pup for the version.

If someone really needs this, anyone can write such app for path checks and identifying CFW version, even me (just say so, it's half an hour job in any programming language, except assembler ).

But I really do not get involved in this, because I can see this PsDev tweeting over the world that I've stolen his "idea", etc, etc, all this PS3 scene drama, you know the drill.

I really can't believe on what RealPsDev wasting they his time (even if it is 5min lol), pointless app that we don't need and now someone will say *you should be grateful* and i am but not with something like this.

He even posted thread on how to dump LV0 but of course, others have to do it but no Dev who thinks he knows how.. basically same as math's walkthrough.

sorry if this sound disrespectful but we all hoping.

Well, I hoped there'll be at least some CRC/MD5 checks on the CFW versions, so the user wouldn't occasionally install OFW... Oh well, pathetic
