Sponsored Links
199w ago - Today MultiMAN's deanrr has made available new PS3 EBOOTMod and EBOOTFix Tools, which allow users to decrypt and re-encrypt newer PlayStation 3 executable files for use on older PS3 Firmware versions.

To quote: Here is an updated version of the tools. They now handle properly SPRX files. (thanks to belmondo for the hints!)

There are few important fixes (about path with spaces and wrong byte change which may cause crashes and also fixed PARAM.SFO in RETAIL to be DG type). Don't use previous versions I posted. This package also includes multiMAN 01.16.11 (TEST UPDATE#5) which handles properly SPRX files during SHADOW COPY.

ebootFIX now produces TWO separate folders:

One is [NPDRM] - to be used as PSN-styled game to launch from XMB (to be used with multiMAN's shadow copy)

The other one is [RETAIL] - it will generate the full game structure with all subfolders + all EBOOT.BIN / *.self / *.sprx files.

[NPDRM] has a PKG file to be used with multiMAN's shadow copy.
[RETAIL] can be used to directly replace the files in your original game BACKUP.

Let me know if it works properly for you.

Short readme for ebootMOD and ebootFIX:

ebootFIX: Drag and drop a PS3 game folder to ebootFIX.exe.

For example drag&drop

X:\GAMES\MY_GAME\PS3_GAME

or

X:\GAMES\MY_GAME\PS3_GAME\USRDIR

or

X:\GAMES\MY_GAME

to ebootFIX.exe. ebootFIX processes whole game folders and produces two output folders:

[NPDRM] - folder - content ready to be installed as PSN-style XMB game:

You will find two PKG files in the folder. The tool will decrypt and sign all executables (EBOOT.BIN and other .self / .sprx files) to make them compatible with lower firmware versions. Follow the generated INSTRUCTIONS in [NPDRM] folder.

[RETAIL] - folder - all files which you can replace in your original backup copy to play the game via a Game Manager.

ebootMOD: Drag & drop a file (EBOOT.BIN, .self or .sprx) to ebootMOD.exe. It will decrypt and sign the file to make it compatible with lower firmware versions. The generated file will be saved in the same folder with the original, prefixed with "MODIFIED_".

More options available via command-line.

Steps are simple and anyone can manage to create PKG for any game he wishes.

1) Drag&drop PS3_GAME folder of your game to "ebootFIX.exe" application
2) You will get a ready to use PKG file
3) Install it on your PS3 and start the game from the XMB.
4) Get your game on your PS3′s INTERNAL HDD
5) Start multiMAN, go to FileManager (select+start)
6) Browse to your game backup, select PS3_GAME folder and press [R3]
7) multiMAN will create some links/shadow copies for your game (no space needed)
8 ) Exit multiMAN and start the game from XMB

You can find eboot_FIX application in the first post of multiMAN's thread. Once the program completes you'll get an instructions (.txt) file if you don't understand the steps above - read the .txt instructions.

Example: Colin McRae Dirt (1) doesn't work from a backup. So if you drag&drop its PS3_GAME folder to ebootFIX.exe you'll get two folders:

  • [BLES00095] [RETAIL] Colin McRae DiRT and
  • [BLES00095] [NPDRM] Colin McRae DiRT (HDD) with files:

1) [BLES00095] Colin McRae DiRT (HDD).pkg
2) [BLES00095] Colin McRae DiRT (HDD)-FW_355.pkg
3) [BLES00095] Colin McRae DiRT (HDD).txt (instructions as posted below)

To use this tutorial you will need a Windows PC and PS3 with multiMAN 01.16.12 (or newer). Please follow these steps exactly in this order! Do not skip or reverse the steps.

INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO USE NPDRM VERSION (PSN-like boot from XMB):

[PC] folder generated: "[BLES00095] [NPDRM] Colin McRae DiRT (HDD)":

!) [PS3] Delete all GAME DATA you may have on you PS3 system for "Colin McRae: DiRT" game!

1) [PC] Copy the generated PKG file to the root folder of USB stick or USB HDD:

-> for firmwares 01.90-03.41: "[BLES00095] Colin McRae DiRT (HDD).pkg"
-> for firmwares 03.55- : "[BLES00095] Colin McRae DiRT (HDD)-FW_355.pkg"

2) [PS3] Install the PKG file from [* Install package files] menu on your PS3
3) [PS3] Open multiMAN in file manager mode on your PS3 system (press SELECT+START)
4) [PS3] Browse to your game (on internal HDD) and press [R3] while PS3_GAME folder is selected
5) This operation will create SHADOW copy of "Colin McRae: DiRT™" to: -> /dev_hdd0/G/E00095 and -> /dev_hdd0/game/BLES00095
6) [PS3] Exit multiMAN
7) [PS3] Launch the game directly from "Colin McRae: DiRT™ (HDD)" icon on the [GAME] column in XMB
8 ) [PS3] If prompted to update the game to newer version - cancel the update

!) You can use [BLES00095] [MODIF] files directly with your game if you decide not to use the (HDD) PKGs, but you will have to rename them to the original names and replace in your game backup folder OR just use files from:

[BLES00095] [RETAIL] Colin McRae DiRT folder.

INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO USE RETAIL VERSION (with a game manager):

[PC] folder generated: "[BLES00095] [RETAIL] Colin McRae DiRT":

1) Replace all files in your original game backup with the contents of the [RETAIL] folder
2) That is it

*) DISCLAIMER: Use this application ONLY with legally owned content!

Finally, another guide from Rogero, to quote:

I have written this small tutorial on how this package should be used, this was tested a lot in the last few days and is working fine with games that requires FW 3.56 where the "eboot.bin/self/sprx" files needs to be properly patched for the games to run on FW <= 3.55 (and for future versions like FW 3.60 the required keys can be added to the package and EbootFIX.exe will work fine too)

To use this tutorial you will need a Windows PC and PS3 with multiMAN 01.16.12 (or newer). Please follow these steps exactly in this order! Do not skip or reverse the steps. (This will work for any 3.56 game and not only "The Tomb Raider Trilogy")

1- Get a copy of the game with original/untouched files on your external USB HDD or on your computer HDD. Note: you can always keep an untouched copy of your game as a backup in case something goes wrong.

2- install the latest EbootFix package with latest multiMAN from here: [Register or Login to view links]

3- extract the downloaded package content on your PC and install the included multiMAN update on your PS3. (multiMAN 01.16.12 or newer is required)

4- from the game folder on your USB HDD/PC, drag and drop the [PS3_GAME] folder onto the EbootFIX.exe (careful here, not on EbootMOD.exe but on EbootFIX.exe) it should start scanning and processing the needed files. It takes about 4 ~ 5 minutes for "The Tomb Raider Trilogy" to finish. Once finished, you will have 2 new folders in the same folder of EbootFIX.exe :

"[BLES01195] [NPDRM] The Tomb Raider Trilogy (HDD)" and "[BLES01195] [RETAIL] The Tomb Raider Trilogy"

5-Copy the content of the folder "[BLES01195] [RETAIL] The Tomb Raider Trilogy" and overwrite the original games files.

Now it have the patched files & you can play it from any backup manager like a normal game. If you want to play the game in retail mode = using a backup manager then you're ready and you can stop here at this step.

Note: "The Tomb Raider Trilogy" is a "Black Screen Game" and it needs to be on external drive + launched with "Select+x"

Steps 6 to 15 are now needed only to play the game from XMB:

6- Copy the game to your PS3 internal HDD.

7- [PS3] Delete all GAME DATA you may have on you PS3 system for "The Tomb Raider Trilogy" game!

8- [PC] from this folder "[BLES01195] [NPDRM] The Tomb Raider Trilogy (HDD)"

Copy the generated PKG file to the root folder of USB stick or USB HDD:

--> for firmwares 01.90-03.41: "[BLES01195] The Tomb Raider Trilogy (HDD).pkg"
--> for firmwares 03.55- : "[BLES01195] The Tomb Raider Trilogy (HDD)-FW_355.pkg"

9- [PS3] Install the PKG file from [* Install package files] menu on your PS3

10-[PS3] Open multiMAN 01.16.12 (or newer) in file manager mode on your PS3 system (press SELECT+START)

11-[PS3] Browse to your game (on internal HDD) and press [R3] while PS3_GAME folder is selected
This operation will create SHADOW copy of "The Tomb Raider Trilogy" to:

--> /dev_hdd0/G/E01195 and
--> /dev_hdd0/game/BLES01195

12-[PS3] Exit multiMAN

13-[PS3] Launch the game directly from "The Tomb Raider Trilogy (HDD)" icon on the [GAME] column in XMB

14-[PS3] If prompted to update the game to newer version - cancel the update

15-say Thanks to Dean and Belmondo for their efforts & enjoy your game.

To run a game without exiting to the XMB go to "game settings" on the game you're on and select "Direct boot".

I upgraded from multi man 1.16 to 2.09.

I used to be able to choose to run games directly from multi man, or be brought back to the xmb to run it there. some games only worked this way. now that i updated to 2.09, those games aren't working.. is there a setting I'm missing? can i direct boot from multi man to run these games? an example of one was GTA 4 would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, regarding version 2.09.00 I have question about "Direct Disc Access" mode. I am confused. It seems to me that the bulletin have conflicting items... from my understanding, when DDA is turn on, you can rip BD movie, launch ISO PS3 backup (*3). But you cannot backup PS3 Game Disc even with it turn on (*3). But (*1) says you cannot create ISO backup ... UNLESS DDA is turn on. That means that when it is turn on, you should be able to backup? Then again, (*0) says that you can back up PS3 game.

So can you create PS3 ISO in any case? Can someone clarify for me?

Also in (*2) what does it mean by "same functionality"? Is it referring to (*3) (rip BD movie discs, launch games,...) or there are any extra functionality that I missed out?

Thanks in advance.

Well I put some iso backup files in the game folder on my external hdd and thought I'd see what happens when launching from file manager but it just won't work (yet).

Think we have to be a little more patient as I read something about Dean working on a new kind of eboot fix which will create a PKG that will run straight from XMB without need of MM.

Or perhaps I totally misunderstand what he is saying. Lets just see what the future brings.

Ain't got a clue what "paxil" format is but FF9 is one of the protected ps1 game so if you make a dump (one way or the other) of that it will most likely need a patch.

Dvd movies is usually encrypted (and region locked) and you need something like Dvdfab to decrypt it. Dvdfab can probably do all you need but personally i like to mess around with Dvdshrink and use ImgBurn to burn.

I did notice that too but I assumed it meant you can start the game from XMMB but it will run the game from disc. Anyone else tried this already without disc? Otherwise I'll just give it a try when I have some time. Kid's playing Toy Story now so it will take a while
