248w ago - This working of knightsolidus with me was supposed to be private, but now DemonHades leaked it and then Pirate posted it like a fool before work was done. We try to control it by put fake but now is too late -- THANKS FOR NOTHING GUYS!
This part is also lie, it was NOT EVER brought to public attention by knightsolidus: "knightsolidus stumbled upon this during his research and brought it to the public's attention."
He ask them to remove it from their page, they did not respect and post it more like basters!
Regard to SKFU, he is right in some parts.. I was excited of seeing new files, until I find they were only from debug like CJPC said already. Also, is true so far we only remove the HDD crypt so this not much help until file crypt is beaten.
All this is truth also of SKFU: You get a few sprx, rco and xml files, possible a few more types but those are useless unless you can remove the encryption of the file itself. But you can't yet. So the only thing you can do for example is getting the firmware part which is on the HDD. But these are only UNPACKED files, NOT DECRYPTED files. You may be able to replace several firmware files ye, so if replacing some text in the XMB or an icon is a custom firmware for you, have fun with the knowledge that this may brick your PS3 and is useless as hell.
Last, from now on knightsolidus work no more with them to stop such leakings from happen again.

Can't believe some people. I deal with idiots all day too - seems the world is full of them these days!
Anyway, personally i think this method might lead somewhere (maybe filesystem drivers or something), although i don't know too much about it.
I'd love to have my high power pc setup right now (would say normal, but not had it setup for ages!). I would dump the entire disk off in 4gb chunks then join it all together and run some scans on the data to see if i could find the toc etc.
Would also be very interesting to see what would happen if you did this for the entire disk, then wrote the results back to the disk. (Would it crash? i suspect so, but would be very interesting anyway!)
Demonpr*ck is clear evidence of that, even tho the world is full of lamers doesnt mean everyone is a lamer
[QUOTE=PS3 News]That was deleted because someone there leaked sce docs and they were trying to get a decrypted eboot on a retail hdd working with that swap method lol.. the leaker was facundoo10, or so I am told.[/QUOTE]
Ahhh SH*T, if this leads onto anything which maybe it wont but you never though, it means your PS3 must be able to emu PS2 so I would be officially screwed. Infact I might sell my PS3 and find an older one now lol but I'll wait to see what happens first.
For the first - mostlikely, they don't have any extra encryption on them (aside from the disk encryption)
Quick formatting will not work, as the whole basis of that is to essentially erase the table of contents, although the data is still there, the table is blank - making it appear empty. But, since there is still data there (and not nothing, ie 00's), it makes it much harder to attempt to retrieve.
So are you saying photos, videos and saved game data can be decrypted through a PC? What about quick formating the HDD does these make these things more difficult to decrpyt? I have attempted to restore my data because of a quick format though the data I found was mostly flash files that don't need decrypting but I couldn't find any of my other progress. So I gave the problem to solve to datatrack labs but they said the data was encrypted by the PS3. The software I tried to use to restore my HDD data was called Data Recovery Wizard from Easeus.com.
