Hi Foo - upon launching the application by itself from the bin folder, it opens and closes right back up again immediately.

The same scenario for launching it with Cygwin. I just noticed you have Skype, may I add you? It'd really help me out to talk about it in real-time!

Best regards,
Chris

Why don't you put the EXE in the bin folder?

Dear all,

While this may be a novice query, I'd greatly appreciate some help in understanding this application: PS3 PUP Unpacker & Decrypter v2.2; linked at the bottom of this post.

I'm trying to extract a .dat file from a PS3 game backup archive, but in doing so, I get the following error: No such file or Directory -- and when I do get the folder to be recognized, it tells me that it doesn't know the command.

The explanation doesn't go into detail on the actual download page for this application, so I'd be grateful for anyone's contributions for knowledge of how this program works.

Many thanks!
Pooketz

No the pup key is still the same and i'm doubt that sony will change it. But could be.

i have a quick try on the program , and i have the following error:

PUP Unpacker & Decrypter v2.2
By Evilnat

Selected Mode: Unpack/Decrypt entire PUP (All Mode)

- Unpacking PUP file...
- Unpacking update_files.tar...
- Decrypting PKG files...
- Unpacking PKG files...
- Decrypting UPL.xml.pkg...
- Decrypting CORE_OS_PACKAGE.pkg...
- Unpacking CORE_OS_PACKAGE.pkg...
- Decrypting ps3swu.self...
- Decrypting SELF files of CORE_OS...
- Decrypting default.spp...
perror: No error
header decryption failed

the OFW i used is 4.0+ ( just download from $ony)
i know the above say that i need the key to decrypt it , but :

1) if a PS3 is at 3.55CFW, it can upgrade to 4.0+ of course.
2) 3.55CFW should not have key of 4.0+
3) but the PS3 unit should work , and so is that key = this key ? as required to unpack 4.0+ PUP ?

thanks all , i know this is hard to have all these work done ~ great job ~
