Resistance: Fall of Disc Based Encryption


Sponsored Links
342w ago - We have been revisiting the aspects of the Blu-Ray disc encryption today. As we know every executable is encrypted, and those executables that are placed on game discs are encrypted once more.

This second layer of encryption can be quite the bother, as it hinders our efforts to explore the console. So we have created a tool that runs on Dev machines that automatically dumps the main encrypted file (EBOOT.BIN) to a PC, or Memory Card.

The PS3News.com EBOOT.BIN dumper may be publically released in coming days, it is ready to go and is installable as a PKG, however it will only work on a Debug/Tool console!

This file is void of the Disc Based layer encryption, it is just a SELF. The SELF is encrypted as well, however we are much more familiar with the SELF file format, than with the randomness of an EBOOT.BIN.

Below is a picture of the utility, as well as screenshots of the following files, in their SELF form. The files were taken from Resistance: Fall Of Man:

EBOOT.BIN 9.15 MB (9,602,456 bytes) / game.self 8.22 MB (8,625,856 bytes)

Looks Exactly the same as a Retail unit (60gb with card slots)
Some come with TEST on the unit, some with ProtoType.
Some with nothing to tell its not a retail box.

But these have most functions of a retail unit Disabled
like CD playback, DVD playback as well as Blu Ray movies disabled.
Oh and the card slots are disabled.

but they have many other Software capability's that a retail unit doesn't have.

Ah, I left the studio the week after we got those models in sadly.

hello guy's, keep it on

is it possible that ps3 load key from an original disk and then we load a game iso, something like devhook on psp ?

and what's your program for hack ps3 ?

They don't have a hack for PS3. They have a development PS3, like the ones that are used by studios to make the games.

Hey, PS3news guys, is this one of the ones that looks roughly in the shape/size of the retail PS3, or the gigantic black rectangular ones? Just curious - all this talk of the dev kits has me nostalgic for my days in the test department at EA Sports.
