Version 0.2.9

  • Plaintext sections will now take less space in metadata header keys array.
  • Added option to specifiy a template SELF to take configuration values from.
  • Added option to override the keyset used for en-/decryption.
  • Fixed NP application types.
  • [Firmware Version] will now be written to control info only.
  • [Application Version] will now be written to application info only.

Finally, from ben.ss7: Here is a scetool v0.2.9 which has zlib1.dll and the data folder embedded within the exe, which means it doesn't require you to have zlib1.dll and the data folder for keys.

The original scetool source code hasn't been touched and it shouldn't have any issues. The keys which have been embedded in to this exe are:

  • NP_tid
  • NP_ci
  • NP_klic_free
  • NP_klic_key
  • NP_sig
  • metldr
  • bootldr(lv0)

If any user wants me to embed all the keys up to 4.31 PM me. Enjoy

Update: From TheUnkn0w via IRC: Updated my sce_encrypt tool, supports drag and drop decryption, added a checkbox for compression and fixed a few bugs Just paste it into your scetool folder and run, makes decrypting/encrypting files far more easier.

Version 0.3.0

  • Added option to specify the data path

From toolboy2012: Hi Guys, So, I decided to make one more nice update to the SCETOOL, so we could seriously clean up that "::makeself{}" routine.....so I added one more command, so that we could dump the specific fields we need to save off from the original SELF header, so we can re-create it with the same data (rather than build these enormous lists of authids, vendorids, etc!)

So now the "SCETOOL -w" command will dump the specific header info we need to PS3MFW, (example is below):

So I dump the following fields:
1) KEY-REV
2) AUTH-ID
3) VENDOR-ID
4) SELF-TYPE
5) VERSION
6) CTRL FLAGS
7) CAPAB FLAGS
8) COMPRESSED

So, there are a couple of new routines I had to add in my "ps3mfw_base.tcl", and the updated "scetool.exe"....

so feel free to take what you need... so my new ::makeself routine utilizes these fields, all read into a global array... and the routine is now much simpler/cleaner.

Note: I still want to review the "self-app-version" & the "self-fw-version" fields in the SCETOOL, and see where exactly they actually reside in the SCE headers, as I would like to get them 100% copied over as well, right now I'm setting both to the "version" field (ie 3.55, etc)

SCETool Unofficial Update by Gamma Argon: Unofficial minor update to scetool.

1. in release of official scetool firmware version was not added to control info when re-signing non-NPDRM eboots (functionality was already coded but not used).

Please note: you may notice some difference between an original self and a re-encrypted self (header size, key table). These changes are the same for official scetool and the unofficial update.

OS: windows, requires standard windows dll's only (vc).

It's just a great tool, a bit difficult to use for the average user. It is a multi-tool based on the fail0verflow tools and mainly it allows to encrypt/decrypt any elf/self with the known keys so far. I'm very glad the coder naehrwert makes it pubblic for all developers and not. I take this opportunity to thank him publicly.

what does the tool actually do though. I see my comment from the last update is just there.

I wouldn't really want to repeat myself, but yeah.. should have that info in there.

yeah, that happens more often than naught on the site... I always see when new releases of software come out, but it's always assumed that we already know what the previous release did...

Yeah, I wanna know what this does too. Should be said clearly there, I clicked this link for more information but there's nothing here.
I know what a SELF file is, but what does this do with them?
