To quote from the included ReadMe file:


12/04/10 - V0.5B - Initial BETA Release

  • Decrypting internal PS3's SELF/SPRX files [BETA - The decrypter hangs on some files]

12/12/10 - V0.6B - Second BETA Release

  • More stability (no hangs anymore)
  • Much more files can now be decrypted
  • GameOS utilizes files to make the console work (I won't give details)
  • These files (SELF = EXE, SPRX = DLL) are stored in /dev_flash
  • This tool enables to decrypt these SELF/SPRX files
  • Such a decrypter will only help people who know what they do
  • The application is not yet capable to decrypt all files (coming soon !)

Some devs asked for the sources. I decided to release them. This tool may help to decrypt system files on DEX consoles

Greetings fly out to (no order):

  • Rupan (nice works dude !)
  • CrashSerial
  • Defyboy
  • Kakaroto
  • NDT
  • eussNL
  • Mas
  • Naehrwert
  • rms
  • The others I've forgotten...

i didn't dig into binary, but i suspect this app does following:

1) loads self/sprx by usual way, as it would be load for execute.
2) dump memory occupied by loaded self/sprx into the file.

since, in (1) it has to execute self/sprx it may produce may side effects and it depends if selected file can be executed in current environment or not...

It's like file dumper on windows which loads protected executable and then tries to dump it into file producing in most cases non-working executable, so manual work is required to make it work.

Same here. I think all this app does is executable the sprx/self and then grabs the data off the memory. I haven't gotten a single a file decrypted..

IMO it's easier to just use Graf's payload...

Thanks! Time to play


bdp_disccheck_plugin.sprx - PS3 simply locks on black screen
bdp_BDMV.self - decrypter shows first two ================= lines and does nothing.
bdp_BDVD.self - same as above

For the last two I can press [X] and exit to XMB. For the 1st one - hard reset only.

Tried some of those in /sys/external and /sys/internal and it worked...

If you can't download attachments it may be due to a setting on your browser, such as a security one or a .zip/.rar file extension association issue.
