To quote, roughly translated: Here's a little house to hide and restore the contents in your IDPS dumps easily program. This so you can upload and post them on the net (for verification, patch ...) without the risk of being robbed that precious IDPS.

In fact, nobody should ignore the risk of theft when a dump is upload on canvas. Even if all precautions are taken (send link by MP, addressed to trust...), from the time your dump is hosted publicly, any search engine worthy of the name will be able to find.

Especially if the file name is self explanatory. In short, the quick fix is ​​to change (hide) the IDPS in the 'dump before the upload. PS3 IDPS Hiding Tool does just that.

Features:

  • Compatible with NOR dumps (for E3 flasher dumps it is best to do a reverse byte with Flowrebuilder before using the program.)
  • Compatible with NAND dumps "interleaved" (not compatible dumps gross)
  • Do not take load dumps converted DEX (with Target ID 0x82 on EID0)
  • Mask only the last seven offsets the IDPS to allow generic data available (Target ID, SKU, chassis).
  • Extraction and preservation of the IDPS in a separate file
  • Restoration of the IDPS from a backup file or from the original dump

Below is also a Hide IDPS Before Sharing a PS3 Dump Tutorial by littlebalup (via logic-sunrise.com/forums/topic/62525-masquer-lidps-avant-de-partager-un-dump/?p=733762) roughly translated, for those interested:

Some forum members have perhaps had the unpleasant misfortune of being robbed after their IDPS uploaded and shared their Dump for verification or otherwise.
Here is a simple tutorial on how to hide the IDPS in a dump in order to share it on the net without risk of being robbed.

I recommend to all forum members to refer to it before asking anyone to send you a dump.

I described two methods. The first is a traditional method of editing and modification of the Dump with HxD. The second method uses my app "PS3 IDPS Hiding Tool" that automates manipulation.

Although the use of "PS3 IDPS Hiding Tool" is more convenient and fast, I strongly advice to start with the first method to understand the principle.

METHOD 1: Hide and Restore the IDPS with HxD

Prerequisites:

  • A Dump NOR (not "byte reversed" preferably) or Dump NAND "interleaved".
  • HxD editor (available here: mh-nexus.de/en/hxd/)

1. Make sure you have several copies of your dump before starting any manipulation.

2. Edit one of your Dumps with HxD.

3. Go to the offset 0002F070 (for NOR), 00080870 (for NAND). This line represents your IDPS:

4. Copy the entire line, paste it into a txt file and save. This will be your backup IDPS to reinject it later if necessary.

5. Change the last 7 Offsets line (last 14 characters), there as "FF" as below:

s3nint3!
6. Go to Offset 000303D0 (for NOR), 00081BD0 (for NAND). You will also find your IDPS:

s3nint3!
7. As before, change the last 7 Offsets line (last 14 characters), there as "FF" as below:

s3nint3!
8. Save the file with a recognizable name "Dump_sans_IDPS.bin" genre.

You can now upload and share this new dump without fear of someone stealing the IDPS
It may be checked and patched by those to whom you send it without any back up error (due to this mod at least) without any problems.

If you get your Dump modified or patched by a Third party, do the reverse manipulation in order to inject your IDPS before flashing.

METHOD 2: Hide and Restore the IDPS with PS3 IDPS Hiding Tool

Prerequisites:

  • A Dump NOR (not "byte reversed" preferably) or Dump NAND "interleaved". Dumps converted into DEX (with Target ID "82" in the EID0) are not supported by this Tool.

The program analyzes the Dump, displays and compares the IDPS present at both addresses (see Method 1).
