Now it doesn't need root key to vmc stuff and now vmc decryption and encryption is working great, added ISO9660 checks and LIMG check and creation. Thanks to flatz, aldo and many others.

To quote, roughly translated: Good friends here I leave the last revision PS2Classic with the new changes and additions by me with the help of Flatz and aldo.

PS2Classic Final Changelog:

  • ISO9660 Check
  • LIMG Support (Check / Creation)
  • VMC Decryption / Encryption fixed with the help of flatz by making new py script to rehash stuff so i can port it and now without. the need to use a root key to encrypt or decrypt your vmc's, thanks to aldo too by helping me in the process.
  • Now you see the progress being maded by decryption or encryption, so is more easy to wait.

It will rehash every change in the blocks and now it should work. About encrypting and decrypting ISO.BIN.ENC or CONFIG nothing changes about user commands because all the change was internal, so is the same.

If you don't want to use this cmd version is better to wait to the new version of Aldo Gui tool because it will have this added and some better gui improvements. Thanks to flatz, aldo and many others helping in the process.

Here also included something for those who want to modify or ripearlas isos more easily and are functional in the PS3. The process is very easy and simple using Expert 1.3 since the 2.0 version tends to have flaws with these images ISO9660 corrupting and ends.

Ripping or modification of any PS2 game

1. Crack the ps2classic ISO.BIN.ENC with great command line or GUI aldo.
2. Expert Runs 1.03 and continues to work the following order:

  • Extract LBA
  • Extract files (It will extract every file from the game in a folder with the iso name)

Now you can make your changes to the game(But obviusly you cannot just delete stuff because the LBA has an order you need to make some dummy file and rename it to the file you want to delete for example), you can mod everything too if the game have some modding tools for sure like gta sa, vc, etc.

  • Rebuild files (Now it will make a ISO with the game folder extracted previusly modified)
  • Rebuild LBA

3. Just encrypt that Game ISO modified with new tools like this new ps2classic command line tool or with new Aldo gui Ps2classic tool with new changes (Because this tools will now remake the LIMG section too). Now use the new ISO.BIN.ENC on the PS3 and check your changes.


From CrUmp comes a PS2 ISO Renaming Tool called PS3CTool v1 (linked above) for PS2Classic v 1.0 with details below, as follows:

I only test with my mac. if you install python 2.7 on windows this should work too. i don't know if it's ok to put key file in this, so I didn't include it. put your ps2.key file in the same location, and include this folder in your $PATH like:

PS2 ISO Renaming Tool for PS2classic v 1.0 - PS3Classic: To encrypt PS2 ISO to PS2Classic image.

The best way to play your PS2 games on your PS3 console is to convert them into PS2 Classic Games. With Multiman and PS2Classic container, you can have unlimited PS2ISOs loaded into your PS3. With [gameID] Game Title naming convention, Multiman will download the game cover if avaliable.

This tool finds gameID from within PS2ISO, and compare with online database to rename the ISO file names

This script works with ps2classic command line tool to make it more convenience to convert mass ISOs.

To rename ISO file with sonyindex.com database entry, in '[DISCID] FILENAME' format

ALL: in a folder to process every ISO under that folder, including subfolders. It will move ISO files to current folder, and re-name iso filenames against the database entries.

Finally, from u$er comes some proper PS2Classic Tool binaries (linked above) who states the following:

Hey there, i've compiled a set of PS2Classic binaries for you based on the latest changes. if you don't like using cmd-line apps, you can replace the one in PS2Classic GUI with this one.

Update: Cobra ODE, shipping February 2013! The Cobra Team are famous for their Cobra USB device which brought tons of unique features to the PS3 scene!

Now we're proud to announce the imminent release of our Cobra ODE device, which again will be at the forefront of cutting edge innovation for PS3 users.


  • Play all PS3 games
  • Play PS2/PS1 games on backwards compatible consoles
  • Solderless installation on all FAT consoles and 20xx/21xx SLIM consoles
  • Easy and fast installation for 25xx series SLIM, 3000 series SLIM and 4000 series SUPER SLIM consoles

**** Designed by the team who brought so many firsts to the scene!
*** 3000 series SLIM and 4000 series SUPER SLIM hardware supported from launch
* Manufactured at a high tech facility = superb quality

Models supported:

  • One hardware revision supports all.
  • Our hardware has been designed to both fit inside and interface with the Super Slim version of the consoles, as well as the SLIM and older FAT systems.
  • If you upgrade at any time from a FAT to a SLIM or a Super SLIM, then there's no need to buy a new device....
  • Support for the newer consoles such as 25xx, 3xxx and 4xxx to run ISO's will be included at release.

Game Ripping:

  • Functionality will be added shortly after release of the device via a firmware update.
  • Ripping speed will be almost as fast as that reached by connecting drive to PC and users will benefit from the convenience of a hassle free game ripping experience! Rip games directly on PS3 to an external USB HDD in ISO format.
  • Additionally we will provide a PC app at time of release of the product to market which allows conversion of JB game dumps to ISO format, so users can simply download games from the net and convert them with our app. The app will patch additional data required to create necessary ISO format.

From deank of the Cobra Team: The EBOOT.BIN (and other .self/.sprx files) for disc games are signed as regular non-NPDRM executables (like RELOAD.SELF, SHOWTIME.SELF included in mM/RetroArch/etc).

If mM is started via ISO on OFW + ODDE it will have exactly the same functionality as it had on 4.xx OFW DEX few months ago.

If they release a tool to convert a folder to a proper ISO then you can pack any homebrew which is properly written and path-independent. If the homebrew requires access to the PS3 filesystem for temporary storage (like saving/reading settings, caching stuff) it will have to create a proper game-data folder for itself and work with that path (basically the app must follow the standard ps3 conventions for disc games). mM already has this support for over an year when I experimented with discBOOT and burned a disc with multiMAN as a game.

Here is an example of how a converted homebrew looks (in this case mM):

You'll still have to convert your games to ISO files. I already mentioned that in such environment mM would behave like on OFW DEX (no peek/poke and other stuff), but it would still allow for launching Showtime, RetroArch, copying stuff from/to network, FTP... I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Finally, from [Register or Login to view links]: Have fun decrypting EID4 ('drive key') on non d/g models
