PS3 SelfTool v1.0 is Now Available!


261w ago - To quote xorloser: I've finally gotten around to finishing my SelfTool for manipulating Self and Sprx files. Self files are like exe files for the PS3 and Sprx files are like dll files for the PS3.

Among other things, SelfTool can be used to print out information stored in the file in a readable format to make studying them easier.

NOTE: This DOES NOT enable booting of copied games in any way. It also does not support decrypting or encrypting of self/sprx files. It is really only useful for those who are interested in looking a bit deeper at self/sprx files.

Great news, but does any of you guys know where to find the xextool mentioned in the text file included? I somehow think it is part of the $DK
He updated his page to a blog-style, so the old link (http://www.xorloser.com/XexTool_v5.2.rar) is dead atm but if you check the Google cache (http://74.125.95.132/search?q=cache:iNVWRobuYxMJ:xorloser.com/+http://www.xorloser.com/&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us) you will see the following about it:

For those curious, this is simply the 'PS3 version' of the XexTool, which should handle all aspects of a SELF file.

How do self files on a PS3 game disc differ from a self file in a system update?

I tested a few self files from firmware updates and the warhawk dev self and all I got was "access denied" so Im guessing there is a slight difference in the self file.

Is that correct or am I doing something wrong?
Works fine here

here is a self from 2.60 updat.pup
