Download: TrueAncestor PKG Creator v1.0

To quote: Hi, mates

I bring you another TA series app - TrueAncestor PKG Creator. I hope you will like this powerful and easy-to-use pkg tool.

v1.0 Features:

1. No more typing command line.
2. No more editing conf file.
3. Support to create more than 10 types of pkg.
4. Support to load ContentID from pkg / auto-generate ContentID.
5. Manage pkg in one folder.
6. Instructions for n00bs.

Tip: To find ContentID PSN Games (echo ContentID = XX0999-NPWR02172_00-PURCHASEDLICENSE>package.conf) for extracted games that don't have PS3_DISC.SFB for the ContentID there are three methods:

1. From PKG, you can use the creator and choose option 6 to load ContentID from PKG.
2. From EBOOT, you can open an EBOOT with a hex editor, search "NPD" in ascii, and you get it.
3. From EDAT contained in PSN game or DLC, open EDAT with a hex editor, ContentID is in the first 3 lines.

Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 developer naehrwert (with flat_z's help) has updated PS3 SCETool v0.2.7 which adds local NP license handling among the changes outlined below.

Download: PS3 SCETool v0.2.7 / ZLib1.dll File (Required) / PS3 SCETool GUI / PS3 SCETool v0.2.7 (Full) / PS3 SCETool Scripts

scetool 0.2.7 [public build] (C) 2011-2012 by naehrwert
NP local license handling (C) 2012 by flatz

Setup:

  • /data/keys : Keyfile.
  • /data/ldr_curves : Loader curves (7744 bytes).
  • /data/vsh_curves : VSH curves (360 bytes).
  • /data/idps : IDPS as binary file
  • /data/act.dat : act.dat
  • /rifs/* : *.rif files
  • /raps/* : *.rap files

Keyfile format:

Keyset example:

NPDRM key(set) names:

  • [NP_tid]: Title ID OMAC1 key.
  • [NP_ci]: Control info OMAC1 key.
  • [NP_klic_free]: Free klicensee.
  • [NP_klic_key]: klicensee key.
  • [NP_idps_const]: IDPS constant.
  • [NP_rif_key]: rif key.
  • [NP_sig]: Footer signature ECDSA keyset.

Help text:

Version 0.2.7:

  • Added local NP license handling.
  • Added option to override klicensee.
  • Added option to disable section skipping (in SELF generation).

Regarding the PS3 SCETool Scripts (linked above): This is a nice little set of batch scripts that someone made to work along side SCETool.

Use the GETSELFINFO.bat to figure out what version your EBOOT (my copy of Resistance 3 was ver. 3.65) is which helped explain why some EBOOTs couldn't be modified. Don't forget to grab the Conent ID if you're changing the EBOOT from an update.

Finally, in related news keperfear has made a GUI for SCETool stating that you will need to have at least .Net 3.0 Framework installed to use it.
