To quote, roughly translated: BiteYourConsole releases to the public a new update of Bite, this is the version 1.3 which contains many good news.

The program allows you to play your backups on ps3 psp. This new update using the program PSP2PS3 arrived at version 1.7.3a, below you will find the changelog and the various features of the program.

Changelog:

  • MOD Aldo alias aldostools
  • Simplified the procedure to process the PKG with a simple click
  • Automated procedure
  • Added theme music
  • New GUI (Form of PSP)
  • Added "select" button to create a PKG file for console DEX.
  • Adding a video guide directly from the application, viewable by clicking on the circle
  • Adding English version
  • Increased compatibility for games

Features:

  • Possibility to convert our backup PSP for PS3
  • Possibility of extracting the files PKG
  • Possibility of converting a file format ISO CSO
  • Possibility to create a PKG file from an ISO file
  • Ability to create a PKG file (Console DEX)
  • Ability to raise or lower the music volume with the + and - just like on the PSP
  • The ability to create pkg file for games over 700 mb

Guide:

Enter a file format CSO, ISO or PBP renaming it 'NP' in the program window, click the X button in the PSP, you can see a video guide by clicking on the rim.

From this screen, we can extract the files from a PKG convert a CSO to an ISO file or create a PKG placed directly from an ISO file, also clicking button we can select the steps console DEX.

In the program we have also added a musical theme, you can edit the buttons indicated by the arrows.

Video Tutorial:





Finally, from aldostools: I uploaded a new "mod" of PSP2PS3 1.7.3d. The problem with the save is caused by the load_tmp/open_tmp/save_tmp folders. They fix some games like LocoRoco Midnight Carnival, but also can affect the save of other games like Dissidia: Final Fantasy.

Download: PSP2PS3_v1.7.3d_CEX-DEX.7z

So, the script now asks if you want to add or not the load_tmp/open_tmp/save_tmp (if you press ENTER when prompted, the default is NO)

Bruteforce Edat 1.0.3

It's a dev klicensee bruteforcer that can be used to find the klicensee used on edat files. It uses BuC's dev klicensee validator to test the potential keys. The tool works in a similar way as Scetool/Bruteforce tool used to find regular Klicensees.

Changes in v1.7.3d mod by aldostools:

  • Fix: Added option to include or not the load_tmp/open_tmp/save_tmp in the placeholder (The load_tmp/open_tmp/save_tmp fixes some games like LocoRoco Midnight Carnival, but also affect the save of other games like Dissidia: Final Fantasy)
  • Added support for context menu: run "Right_click_context_menu - CSO & PBP.bat" as administrator
  • The PKG now uses the original name of the CSO
  • ISO2PBP.bat now uses the old version of fake_np 1.0 if the ISO image is smaller than 133.4MB (this helps to speed up the conversion & makes the PKG smaller)
  • Disabled the question about upload the PKG to FTP (it can be enabled commenting the goto ftp_no in 3. MAKE_PACKAGE.bat)
  • Improved the speed of MakeEDATs.exe (now should work better)
  • More bug fixes

Changes in v1.7.3e mod by aldostools:

  • Fix: Added option to include or not the load_tmp/open_tmp/save_tmp in the placeholder (The load_tmp/open_tmp/save_tmp fixes some games like LocoRoco Midnight Carnival, but also affect the save of other games like Dissidia: Final Fantasy)
  • Added support for context menu: run "Right_click_context_menu - CSO & PBP.bat" as administrator
  • The PKG now uses the original name of the CSO
  • ISO2PBP.bat now uses the old version of fake_np 1.0 if the ISO image is smaller than 133.4MB (this helps to speed up the conversion & makes the PKG smaller)
  • Disabled the question about upload the PKG to FTP (it can be enabled commenting the goto ftp_no in 3. MAKE_PACKAGE.bat)
  • Improved the speed of MakeEDATs.exe (now should work better)
  • More bug fixes

Changes in v1.7.4 mod by aldostools:

  • Added resign method suggested by Celebratesparta. Thanks to Romangelo for the more clear tutorial (posted below).
  • CSO2ISO now calls SIGN_EBOOT.bat instead of 1b. ISO2EBOOT.bat
  • SIGN_EBOOT.bat now extract EBOOT.BIN from NP.ISO, decrypt EBOOT.BIN, resigns EBOOT.BIN and add EBOOT.BIN, BOOT.BIN and blank OPNSSMP.BIN back to ISO
  • Added: WQSG_UMD_R31.exe, eboot_decrypt.exe to tools folder
  • Removed save_tmp/open_tmp/load_tmp from root folder of template
  • Extended wait time on MakeEDATs.exe

With the new process I could even resign games patched with Prometheus.

Some games that previously didn't work for me, that now work are:

  • Vanguard 1
  • Hot Shots Shorties Blue Pack / Green Pack

I haven't tested more... but it seems the compatibility is really improved. Brief Guide:

1. Download and extract PSP2PS3_v1.7.4_CEX-DEX
2. Run Right_click_context_menu - CSO, PBP & PKG.bat (with administrator privileges)
3. Right click on a CSO and select "Convert CSO to PSP2PS3", answer some y/n questions and wait until the program finish.

If you have an ISO, put it in the PSP2PS3 folder, rename it as NP.ISO, run 1b. ISO2EBOOT.bat, answer some y/n questions and wait until the program finish (if you want to resign the EBOOT.BIN in the ISO, rename the ISO to NP.ISO and run SIGN_EBOOT.bat).

If you have a PKG for PSP downloaded from PSN, right click on the pkg, select "Convert PKG to PSP2PS3", answer some y/n questions and wait until the program finish. If you have the EBOOT.PBP already extracted and signed, put it in the folder, run "2. MAKE_EDATS_CEX.bat", answer some y/n questions and wait until the program finish.

PSP Emulator Tutorial by Romangelo

1. extract EBOOT.BIN from the game ISO
2. use eboot_decrypt.exe to make BOOT.BIN from EBOOT.BIN
3. rename BOOT.BIN to EBOOT.BIN
4. use SIGN_EBOOT.bat to sign EBOOT.BIN
5. put it back to the game ISO
6. convert the game to PS Mini

Update: Here's my tutorial for people who still can't do it (using FF3 for the example):

1. extract EBOOT.BIN from FF3 ISO, using WQSG_UMD
2. put EBOOT.BIN in the same folder as eboot_decrypt.exe (from DNRiper) then run eboot_decrypt.exe, you'll get a BOOT.BIN file.
3. delete EBOOT.BIN (to avoid confusion)
4. rename BOOT.BIN to EBOOT.BIN
5. run SIGN_EBOOT.bat (from PSP2PS3 1.7.3a), you'll get a signed EBOOT.BIN
6. extract OPNSSMP.BIN from FF3 ISO, open it in hex editor, delete everything and save it as a 0 byte file. (you can keep this file and use it with the other games)
7. put the signed EBOOT.BIN and the 0 byte OPNSSMP.BIN in WQSG_UMD (with FF3 ISO opened) then close the app.
8. convert the fixed ISO to PS Minis.

To quote, roughly translated: After a very short time since our last release we have decided to release to the public a new version of our tool for Windows PCs called Bite, to version 1.4 (Extreme Edition).

The tool allows you to convert and transform your files with a simple click, and in turn transform your PSP games in PKG and launch on PS3 with CFW.

This new update adds lots of news! Now the meter will be installed from the setup, no more folders improvised, we have integrated a video player, a mp3 player, in fact clicking on the button shaped like a musical note we can load our favorite song, and many other innovations that we're going to see here followed by the changelog.

Finally, in related PS3 homebrew news today PlayStation 3 developer $n!pR has made available PSP2PS3 Toolkit GUI with details below followed by a few updated revisions, as follows:

Download: PSP2PS3 Toolkit.zip / PSP2PS3 Toolkit - v1.10.zip / PSP2PS3 Toolkit - v1.20.zip / PSP2PS3 Toolkit - v1.20a.zip / PSP2PS3 Toolkit - v1.30.zip / PSP2PS3 Toolkit - v1.40.zip / PSP2PS3 Toolkit - v1.40.zip (Mirror)

Ok so while running batch files is fun and all I decided to make my own tool. This is just an early build I've been working on which creates the basic file structure. You still need Adolstools to create the PKG file for now.

Basic how to:

  • Browse to ISO, the program will automatically find the CID
  • Enter the Title ID you want to use
  • Click Make Package
  • Right click the folder created and click Make PKG

ToDo:

  • Add option to copy media files from ISO
  • Add option to use EBOOT.PBP from PSN
  • Make PKG file

There is a conflict between multiMAN and PSP/MINI's Gameplay. When the "Enable Dynarec" is turned "ON" and multiMAN is launched, then exited and a PSP/MINI Game is then launched. It will result in a BLACK SCREEN FREEZE (no mini's logo appears).

To avoid this issue do not run multiMAN prior to a PSP/MINI game or Turn OFF the Dynarec within multiMAN setting located in the XMMB view near the bottom of the "Settings" Column. Some people may of thought some titles were unplayable via the Mini's emulator but actually were victim of this conflict so be sure you to re-check your converted games if you had this option enabled.

PSP2PS3 Toolkit v1.10 Changelog:

Added:

  • Copies media files from ISO by default
  • Make PKG file

ToDo:

  • Add option to use EBOOT.PBP from PSN
  • Add option to use custom media files (psn_package_npdrm requires ICON0.PNG)

PSP2PS3 Toolkit v1.20 Changelog:

  • Added option to use EBOOT.PBP from PSN
  • Added option to use custom media files
  • Bug fixes in PKG creation process
  • There was a bug in PARAM SFO Editor which has been fixed in v2.8.5

PSP2PS3 Toolkit v1.20a Changelog:

  • Added save game fix option

PSP2PS3 Toolkit v1.30 Changelog:

  • Added support for PKG files

Just a side note: For retail packages it will scan and use the full 36 character content id, instead of just the 9 alphanumeric CID. eg. Instead of using placeholder UP1004-ULUS10160_00-0000000000000001, it'll use UP1004-ULUS10160_00-GTAVICECITYST000.

PSP2PS3 Toolkit v1.40 Changelog:

  • Added PSP Remasters support

Finally, from aldostools comes PSP2PS3 v1.7.4 for CEX / DEX (linked above) with the changes outlined below:

For GUI lovers / black box (DOS window) haters, here is a new version of 1.7.4a with a quick GUI (ps3_minis.exe)

Changes in PSP2PS3 1.7.4a mod by aldostools:

  • The GUI supports drag & drop, CLI and browse dialog
  • File types supported: pbp, pkg, cso and iso
  • A nice progress bar is displayed while the file is being processed.

The GUI is an initial release and issues are expected.

Changes in PSP2PS3 1.7.4b mod by aldostools:

  • Added option to create EBOOT.PBP with no compression

Changes in PSP2PS3 1.7.5 mod by aldostools:

  • Updated with ps3_minis GUI v1.3 (mainly minor changes to the GUI. Compatibility should be the same as 1.7.4)

Try to do that and tell the results. It didn't work for me.
Still get error on some games but it seems to be saving the data anyways. Almost like it's mounting the "card" to save and then "removing" directly after it finishes.... odd, but yea it's saving data and working.

Tested with Dissidia and Infected.
