49w ago - Following up on the recent PS3UserCheat dongle hacking news, today PlayStation 3 developer zadow28 has updated his ongoing work with some reverse-engineering and payload development research on the DRM-infected Cobra PS3 USB dongle.
It's important to note that these files are not end-user friendly yet, work still needs to be done by those familiar with PS3 PPU / SPU coding in IDA Pro by other PlayStation 3 developers to further develop payloads for dongle-free PS3 scene solutions.
Finally, below are some recent related Tweets via Twitter (linked above), as follows:

Where iso_path1 is the source iso, iso_path2 is the destination encrypted iso.bin.enc and klc_path is the path to the klicense.
I just tested it (launching a regular ISO in mM, it spawns the ps2classics.self and creates the encrypted ISO + a folder structure) - everything seems ok. It needs a nice progress bar, improved I/O by using async read/write and you're good to go. It doesn't support 4GB+ files, but properly adds missing info for CD ISO files.
Basically with mM you can dump your PS2 game disc, load it in the RETRO column, it will convert it to ps2classic in a minute or two and you can load it with ps2-classics-placeholder. I'll release a test mM later.
Showtime 04.03.128 by Andreas Oman is now available (for mM and as standalone in the WEB column).
Which RAP did you use to encrypt the iso? Make sure you use 2P0001-PS2U10000_00-0000111122223333 and try again. Use a hex editor on it and look for this in the first 16 bytes- if you see instead something like JP0102-NPJD00015_00-0000000000000000 then you used the wrong one.
