Running PSP Games (ISOs) and Homebrew as Minis on PS3 Guide


Sponsored Links
69w ago - This weekend zecoxao made available a guide on running PSP games (ISOs) and homebrew as Minis on the PS3 console.

This news comes after the PS3 / PSP Remote Play guide, GamerSuper and Snowydew of Gitbrew's early PSP / PS3 development.

To quote: A little bird reminded me that the [Register or Login to view links] ([Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] by element) / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]) is based of Juan's code. once again, I'm deeply sorry if i haven't given the proper credit to that amazing person. It'll be left in the header of this post for people to see.

From pink1:

  • 1st - You need to get the batch file, Edat Tool GUI, a rap file (I made one full of 0s), PARAM.SFO and a PSN PSP game.
  • 2nd - Extract the pkg with pkgView and copy the the eboot.pbp to the same file as the batch file and run the batch to get your ISO.BIN & MINIS.BIN.
  • 3rd - add the titleid and the title to the PARAM.SFO you downloaded.
  • 4th - Run Edat Tool GUI set it just like the pic but with your Content ID and encrypt your ISO.BIN & MINIS.BIN to ISO.BIN.EDAT & MINIS.EDAT. Put the PARAM.SFO in the ULUSXXXX folder the eboot.pbp back in the CONTENT folder and the ISO.BIN.EDAT & MINIS.EDAT into the USRDIR from the pkg you extracted.
  • 5th - Repack the extrated file back into a pkg with aldostools ps3 tools and install.

Apologies... Cleaned up. OK, so here's how it works: On each mini, there are two files called ISO.BIN.EDAT and MINIS.EDAT. There's also another one(the game) called EBOOT.PBP

Decrypting ISO.BIN.EDAT will generate a binary that contains the following: ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Iso.bin.edat#Minis_iso.bin_structure

Decrypting MINIS.EDAT will generate a binary that contains almost the same, except that it is much smaller because it only contains a small header and the encrypted version key (i'm going to add the info to the wiki so don't worry)

Now, there is a program, with included source code, based on libkirk ([Register or Login to view links]), that does all the hard work for us and decrypts the EBOOT.PBP. just rename EBOOT.PBP to NP.PBP and it'll decrypt the eboots contents for you.

If you want to compile the stuff you need libkirk.a (above) and to get that you need cywgin or gcc or mingw (or any c compiler available).. you can compile it with cygwin. place it on the /lib folder under cygwin and use it to compile the other project.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (Precompiled Executable) / [Register or Login to view links] (this one spits out the table but the block offset and block size are big endian, don't forget to rename your EBOOT to NP.PBP) / [Register or Login to view links] (Precompiled Executable) / How to Change Your PSP Mini's Logo Tutorial

That program will also generate the header (in big endian) and the version key (exists per pbp). Let's take care of the MINIS.BIN first. it has a random 16 bytes of data. if we decrypt that data with this specific key using aes-cbc

We will get the version key. That takes care of MINIS.BIN and we can forge our own if we want with another eboot.. let's go now to ISO.BIN

The header there is the same as the generated header from the decryptor, except byte swapped in some places (again, little endian in ISO.BIN and big endian in np_header.bin) header taken care of, we go to the table (lots of hours on this one guys)

This is divided in 4 parts (cmac of block using another key, offset of block relative to np_header and size in bytes of encrypted and compressed data)

Finding the block offset (tp[4] in code) and the block size (tp [5]) in the code was easy, as well as the padding bytes (tp [6] and [7]). the hard part was the cmac, which is now taken care of (the link for the modified tool is here: [Register or Login to view links], take notice only the first block cmac is generated) First version (fetches the cmac of the first block and passes it to cmac.bin) <- kinda lame though, cmacs are now possible to generate.. we're missing one last part, the encryption of the version key in MINIS.EDAT

You'll notice that in that code, there is a key in npeg.c. that is the minis1 key.. now we have proper cmacs. Very nice

What's missing now is to find an iso and make it an eboot, and use the information of the eboot and put it on ISO.BIN and MINIS.BIN, then repack the edats (using KDSBest's tool), create a pkg and test it.. for packing isos into eboots the closest we have is fake_np (also in libkirk). For those of you who want to test these kirk tools, check the link under the minis table information. And that's it.

Tutorial (PSP PSN EBOOTS)

Here's the tutorial btw.. it's incomplete because the edat packing doesn't work that well (we need to forge EDATs properly using Juan's indications and sources, c++ would be optimal for this, maybe just C)

1. get eboot.
2. decrypt it with npdpc v2. you'll get header.bin, table.bin, version_key.bin and the iso
3. swap the endianess on the necessary offsets (u32 swap32);
4. merge the new header with the new table and call it tmp.bin
5. fill bytes from offset 0xB0 to 0x100 with zeros (0x50) of the file
6. rename the file to ISO.BIN
7. get the first 0x40 bytes from ISO.BIN and copy them into a new file called
tmp2.bin
8. get version key.bin and encrypt it with aes-cbc 128 using ps3 minis2 as key with 0 iv, and output to a file called tmp3.bin
9. merge the files tmp2.bin and tmp3.bin into a new file called MINIS.BIN
10. pack the BINs into EDATs (signed as free content)
11. repackage with EBOOT.PBP, ISO.BIN.EDAT and MINIS.EDAT into correct place.
12. Test the new package.

Note: I forgot that the header isn't checked by PS3. This'll make things a lot easier

Requirements

  • EBOOT.PBP of the game;
  • npdpc v2 (via [Register or Login to view links])
  • EDAT packing tools (properly working that is - WIP)
  • openssl

1. decrypt EBOOT.PBP with npdpc v2. you'll get header.bin, table.bin, version_key.bin and the iso
2. compile arnold's tool (see below for details)
3. run the binary like this

3. get the first 0x40 bytes from ISO.BIN and copy them into tmp.bin;
4.Type:

5. merge the files tmp.bin and tmp2.bin into a new file called MINIS.BIN
6. pack the BINs into EDATs (signed as free content)
7. repackage with EBOOT.PBP, ISO.BIN.EDAT and MINIS.EDAT into correct place.
8. Test the new package and report here.

PS3 Minis Header Endian Swapping Sample 0.0.1 by arnoldbronson

Hi all, This is some code that will change the endianness of certain entries within the header and ISO block table of PS3 minis.

I wrote this with very short notice and very quickly. There may be silly mistakes and stuff that just doesn't make sense. With that data that I was provided, the app works fine. If this ends up being of no use, I don't mind. It's not particularly fascinating anyway.

Hello to all PSP Devs, PS3 Devs and zecoxao. Tested under gcc i686-apple-darwin11

Download: pb.arnoldbronson.comli.com/index.php?show=91

From szczuru comes a few videos of PSP games running on PS3 below who states via libretro: Note to any prospective devs - console hacking scenes are predominantly multi-level marketing scams run by vapid wannabe 'entrepreneurs'. 'Buy a Cobra now, buy a True Blue a year later, buy an ODDE device a year after that' - all by a guy who knows 'XOR'. (aka xorloser aka loser aka CitizenX of Paradox)

Package with instruction and files for DEX:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror)

PACKAGE DOES NOT CONTAINS FILES FROM SDK/GAMES. Tested on Win7 SP1 x64. Updated version - previous has a bug. New version of package for DEX below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

PSP2PS3 version 1.5 Changelog:

  • Added compatibility with CEX FW (EDAT Tool GUI included)
  • Added make_package_npdrm from Aldo's Tools
  • Added ability to transfer package created by MAKE_PACKAGE via FTP to PS3 (package will be transferred to dev_hdd0:/packages)
  • Added ability to extract PKG and copying eboot from it to PSP2PS3 dir
  • Auto generating correct PARAM.SFO
  • Added ability to enable/disable compression in ISO2EBOOT
  • ISO2EBOOT will ask that EBOOT.PBP could be used as DONOR

PSP2PS3 version 1.6 Changelog:

  • MAKE_PACKAGE:
  • Added ability to change GameID (eg when user want to make few packages using one placeholder)
  • Added ability to use PIC1/ICON0/SND from source (original ISO or ISO generated by MAKE_EDATS_[CEX/DEX])

PSP2PS3 version 1.7 Changelog:

  • SIGN_EBOOT - Old (unsigned EBOOT) will be kept as EBOOT.OLD
  • Replaced EDAT Tool GUI with new one - only 2 clicks to make EDATs
  • Replaced old npdpc tool with new one (mongoose) which doesn't need Open-SSL and other tools (swapper/minis_bin)
  • Replaced make_package_npdrm with psn_package_npdrm
  • Added UMDGEN to PSP2PS3 package (in tools directory)
  • FIXED: Generating package with proper CID (based on GameID)
  • FIXED: few minor bugs

PSP2PS3 version 1.7.1 Changelog:

  • Few modifications by Aldo (aka aldostools)
  • Added a default placeholder folder (created from tools\PSPP00000.7z) and fixed a couple of errors.

PSP2PS3 version 1.7.2 Changelog:

  • Couple bugfixes
  • Added check for exist load_tmp/save_tmp/open_tmp directories in placeholder

  • FIXED: Starting EDAT Tool when user chooses to unpack iso
  • MAKE_PACKAGE:
  • FIXED: Issue when function sleep doesn't exist in system - pause will be used insted of it.
  • ISO2EBOOT:
  • Extension in output filename is now required
  • DONOR.PBP isn't required anymore. Replaced fake_np with one which doesn't need DONOR //thanks to Aldo (aka aldostools)




You can edit ISO2EBOOT.bat

to

To enable compression iso to PBP (so if you have DONOR ~1.1G you could inject into it iso ~1.2-1.3GB but i have sometime issues with this compress option so i don't use it - my placeholder is Dante's Inferno)

Just convert PS2Classics with -dex variable instead of -cex. For now we can't run PSP games/custom minis on CEX (EDAT encryption issues) so if you want to play PSP games on PS3 you have to convert your console to DEX. If you have eid_root_key it'll take you ~2minutes to convert you console for the first time then any next convert DEX<->CEX (on same FW) takes ~30sec.

Changes:

  • Now when user want create pkg - question to input CID will appear then package.conf will be created with this CID.

Example: Use Fake np ver 1.0

DONOR.PBP is game from PSS which size is ~1,5GB (eg Dante's Inferno, LocoRoco 2) Basically you can create EBOOT.PBP up to 1.8 GB if you have sufficiently large donor. You can also use -c switch yo compress data in EBOOT.




If you receive this error, try with -npdrm1 instead of -psp:

Next test results:

  • Crazy Taxi Fare Wars - Kicks back to XMB after choosing game
  • Dissidia 012 Duodecim Final Fantasy - Black Screen after Minis logo
  • Killzone Liberation - Black screen after devs logos
  • LocoRoco [EUR- before i've tested US] - Black Screen after Minis logo
  • Mercury Meltdown - Black screen after Minis logo
  • Patapon 2 - same as in 1st part - choosing new game will crash the game

And the last... LocoRoco2 - Game WORKS REALLY GOOD - only one issue - movies have ONLY SOUND.

Special thanks to ErikPshat and members from pspx.ru for help!

From doobz comes a [Register or Login to view links] ([Register or Login to view links] by daxtsu) of code to converting PSP to PSP Minis (CEX) followed by a [Register or Login to view links] (switch -dumpiso to save ISO with BINs) from $n!pR with a brief guide below:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (Compiled version and all the tools needed with a mini tutorial) / [Register or Login to view links] (New package with simpler instructions)

Here's my mini tutorial:

  • Run fake_np on iso you want converted [fake_np -b DONOR.PBP isoname.iso EBOOT.PBP]
  • DONOR.PBP is EBOOT.PBP of a PSN PSP title
  • Run batch.cmd
  • Run EdatToolGUI and enter the following information:
  • Type: 00 Version: 02 Flags: 0C
  • Input file: ISO.BIN and output as ISO.BIN.EDAT
  • Open rap of DONOR.PBP or create dummy rap (32 zeros in HxD)
  • Type content ID of rap (ie. UP1004-ULUS10160_00-0000000000000000)
  • Click encrypt
  • Change input to MINIS.BIN and output to MINIS.EDAT
  • Click encrypt
  • Copy ISO.BIN.EDAT and MINIS.EDAT to TITLEID/USRDIR/ of iso (ie. Brave Story ULUS10279/USRDIR/)
  • Copy EBOOT.PBP to TITLEID/USRDIR/CONTENT/ (ie. ULUS10279/USRDIR/CONTENT/
  • Open SFO Editor and change TITLEID to that of iso (ie. ULUS10279)
  • Change Title to that of ISO (ie. Brave Story: New Traveler)
  • Right click TITLEID folder (ie. ULUS10279) and click Make PKG

From harryoke comes a PSP2PS3 DEX Package Guide, as follows:

1. Obtain PSP game in PKG format, obtain make_edata_npdrm.exe, make_package_npdrm.exe and put them in this directory. Install Open-SSL also (binaries in Windows directory).

2. Extract it using PkgView to this directory (thisdir\ULUSXXXXX\USRDIR ect)

3. Move EBOOT.PBP from ULUSXXXXX\USRDIR\CONTENT to this dir.

4. Open PARAM.SFO in THIS dir and edit GameID/Name to ID/name of game from step 1 and copy it to ULUSXXXXX dir (replace old file)

5. If you want to convert game from step 1 go to step 6

5a. If you want to create EBOOT.PBP from ISO file:

  • Copy ISO file here
  • Rename EBOOT.PBP in this dir (from step 3) to DONOR.PBP - IMPORTANT! DONOR.PBP (game from 1st step) MUST BE BIGGER THAN ISO FILE
  • RUN ISO2EBOOT

6. Run make_EDATs

7. Run make_package

8. Copy package and install it on PS3 (IMPORTANT! If you have "Package Manager" [eg in Rebug FW] and you want to install package you'll see only "Please Wait" message. Wait till message disappear then go to Package Manager -> PlayStation Network Content and install your package from there).




This tools works ONLY on DEX. Tested on Rebug 4.30.2 DEX.

From aldostools: This is a VBS script that I made to auto fill the values for EDATs. Maybe it could be integrated to the script (it is already using the CID from the RAP of PS2 Classics Placeholder to anything you want).

Finally, from BlackDaemon comes a guide and some additional test results (on PS3ITA 4.21 DEX):

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

How it works:

1. Unpack archive contents to any directory.
2. Grab provided prx file (from "!tested" folders), place it to root folder and rename to DATA.prx
3. Run "SIGN.BAT", and grab EBOOT.BIN
4. Using UMDGen open any psp game image and replace EBOOT.BIN to this one (path PSP_GAME/SYSDIR)
5. Save image as iso, and using fake_np make eboot.pbp.

Update: Below is an updated Running Homebrew on PS3 via PSP Emulator (Minis) Guide by BlackDaemon:

1. Download and install Minimalist PSPSDK (sourceforge.net/projects/minpspw/ or [Register or Login to view links]).
2. [Example] Go to "C:\pspsdk\psp\sdk\samples\gu\beginobject" directory and open "Makefile" using notepad (or another editor).
3. Add "BUILD_PRX = 1" string there and save it.


4. Using command line go to directory and type "make".


5. Download PrxEncrypter from above, and extract it somewhere.
6. Grab beginobject.prx, and copy it to PrxEncrypter directory.
7. Rename it to DATA.prx and run SIGN.BAT.
8. Open any PSP image using UMDGen and replace EBOOT.BIN in PSP_GAME/SYSDIR with generated one from PrxEncrypter directory.
9. Save image as iso and using fake_np convert it to eboot.pbp
10. Proceed next steps to pack it as minis, like regular PSP game.

Following up on their previous update, today Italian PlayStation 3 developers at BiteYourConsole have updated their PSP Minis on PS3 application dubbed PSPMinis / PS3Minis / Bite to version 1.3 followed by v1.3a with the changes below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror #2) / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror #2) / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] by aldostools / [Register or Login to view links]

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: [Register or Login to view links]

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 v1.7.4 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.

You don't extract the iso... do step 1 ...then OPEN ugen go to file...OPEN the iso find the eboot in sys directory extract to the folder... run sign eboot if it says its a elf just exit and run iso2eboot ..if it says completed and doesn't say elf drag the modified eboot back into ugen and overwrite.. next run iso2eboot then step go to step 2... pretty much self explanatory from there on in.

i'm using v1.71 of sz's tool
