3k3y Ripp3r v1.01 Setup and User Guide: Windows software for ripping/decrypting/reencrypting PS3 disks. The user manual is included in the archive.

Changelog [2013-02-01]:

  • Fixed a bug that affected encryption/decryption of very large files.

From zecoxao: I bet people didn't even touch the implementation of libeeid that naehrwert left us, and then these guys come, use flat_z's code to get the eid_root_key on hackables, and grab the necessary part of the code from [Register or Login to view links] to generate the eid4_key from it and decrypt the eid4. Bunch of freaking losers.

People, if you're that desperate to get the drive key (which is in eid4) just memdump eEID, get your eid_root_key with flatz's package and use my program which is adapted from naehrwert's code. you can even see for yourselves what's happening in the code. Don't forget to rename the eEID you get from your console's NOR/NAND to eid (without an extension) and place it on eid folder. same as key and iv (split them up with a hex editor).

You can then try that program and compare your decrypted eid4 with the pkg's dump, and realize it's the same crap.

Here we can see the keys used by the ripper (taken from: ps3devwiki.com/wiki/BD_Drive_Reverse_Engineering#Program and ps3devwiki.com/wiki/BD_Drive_Reverse_Engineering#Information_about_EID4):

The keys are in eid4, and yes, we DO need to decrypt it, or else Sony would be the biggest bunch of retards.. the eid4 key is used to verify the cmac hash of the first 0x20 bytes. Naehrwert's code seems to prove this:

omac1 basically spits out the digest of the secure communication channel keys. if you compare the digest with the last 16 bytes of eid4, it should match

Corrected some info. and apparently i was mistaken when i thought that 3Dump.bin contained the eid4 ENcrypted. it contains in fact eid4 DEcrypted. You still need to auth with the bd drive. that's the part Cobra/E3 figured out. we can do this normally with hacked consoles, but not with unhacked consoles.

So the ODE dumper package dumps the DEcrypted eid4, correct? now i understand. i was confused because i thought you said the eid4 ENcrypted was the same as 3Dump.bin.

3K3y Key Dumper

Here is the Key dumping Application to on a Ps3 with CFW. This will only work for Fat consoles. You must have a FAT32 USb stick in the first port on your PS3, it will generate a file called 3Dump.bin This is what goes on your micro sd card, or loaded into the Ripper application.

Please note you need Peek and Poke enabled in your CFW to run this app, this is usually enabled by default. Cobra CFW doesn't allow you to run this file so you will need to flash to something else if you are on this.

From jarmster: The eid4 from running libeeid is a decrypted dump. The 3dump.bin is exactly the same. The eEID_Dumper.pkg dumps the encrypted eid4. And from the wiki: EID4 is of size 0x30 bytes: 0x0-0xf bytes = 1st key, 0x10-0x1f - 2nd key, 0x20-0x2f - CMAC-OMAC1 of EID4.

From haz367:

should be different.. correct..?

From zadow28 on the 3K3y PKG file: pastebin.com/79V2KdTK

I'm not into VS very much, maybe the devs can have an look. It's the visual source/assembly code for the x3key ps3 software for pc. got there keys and even shows there iso disc codes, plus a lot more. I'm not an visual expert, so maybe there are some visual experts here. shows how the x3key acts like an Bulk. etc

The iso for x3key are crypted, so they only play with there tool.. the source for encrypting the iso are in there too.

From Abkarino (via Zadow28) comes the 3K3y Ripper (PC Software) hacked source code recovered, as follows:

You could build your own hardware interface to connect PS3 BD-ROM Drive to your PC to rip your games. The 3K3y special hardware is in only a cheap PATA To USB converter board with some modifications, and you can do it yourself. Also you could directly connect your PS3 Drive to your PC by soldering it to PATA bus a.k.a IDE cable and modify the power socket only. You can use the old leaked BD-ROM drive service manual for pinout (ps3devwiki.com/wiki/ODE).

This is a quick and dirty release for 3K3Y Ripper application including the full recovered source code. So you can build/modify your own version. All you will need is: .Net Framework Runtime v4.0

Message to 3K3Y Team: Do not stole glevand's work again Also do not forget to protect you applications using a good .Net protector like .Net Reactor to prevent me or any body else from recovering your codes. Hope that will help someone to do something useful in the future.

Regards.

Products developed by our team members, such as Xk3y, Wode, and Wiikey Fusion have outsold products in direct competition by a factor. The same thing goes for many of our other products such as Qoob and Wiikey.

The question many people are asking about it compatibility with various firmwares and PS3 models. Let us state the facts here, which are true for 3k3y as well as any other PS3 ODE:

Key extraction

Currently a firmware <= 3.55 is required for drive key extraction. We are very close to completing a relatively user friendly hardware method for extracting keys from PS3's on any firmware. Until we have it working in a commercial environment we will not promote this as a feature, even though it is very likely to happen in the immediate future.

As of now there are no PS3 ODEs that works with a PS3 that cannot be put on 3.55 firmware for key dumping. Period.

Compatible models

3k3y was developed for the fat ps3, which is supported out of the box. Now when the hardware is finished we will start working on adapter boards for the Slim models which do not have the drive controller integrated on the motherboard.

Once that is done we will look into whether is it possible to make an adapter board for the Slims with integrated controller that can be installed with a reasonable effort.

Super Slim

Due to the size constraints and different interface (SATA instead of PATA) we have developed a super small hardware especially for the Super Slim model. Final testing and release will commence once we have hardware key extraction working.

ISO file format

3k3y, as well as any other sane ODE uses a full ISO file. Scene releases were in this format up until the jailbreak dongle came along. Currently it is more popular to release the decrypted file system, as it may be smaller than a full ISO.

However, decrypted file system backups lacks essential data necessary to emulate the disk properly and are very easy for Sony to detect on PSN. In fact Sony has made a public statement warning PSN users about this. We are currently looking into the possibility of creating software to recreate the ISO from decrypted dumps, but this is WIP.

Game Ripping

This is an essential feature as the full ISO is needed. We have high speed hardware that connects to Mac or PC and dumps a full size ISO in no time. Its right here and now.

An upcoming firmware for 3k3y will include in-system disk ripping, but disk ripping with 3k3y or any other ODE will be extremely slow compared to using our dedicated hardware.

To avoid delays and missing out on sales please contact us ASAP. Both 3k3y and Xk3y are time consuming and labor intensive to manufacture. We need timely forecasts to avoid disappointments.

Additionally, the first 3K3y ODE iSO release appears to have surfaced under the name PlayStation.All-Stars.Battle.Royale.READNFO.ISO.PS3-TL with details below from the PS3 NFO file:

From CaptainCPS-X: Size difference between old ISOs and new ISOs - From my experience coding my personal (unreleased) disc reading library for Windows, from what I understand, I will assume that the size difference its because the ISO is not really created following the ISO9660/MODE1/2048 (+UDF/Joliet/...) standard, but probably created as ISO9660/MODE1/2352 (+UDF/Joliet/...) or BIN (binary). So each sector will have 'synchronization data', and 'Error Check Data', found on Discs to allow recovery / re-creation of sector data in case of Disc Surface damages and such.

Such 'extra' data located on ISO/MODE1/2352 BIN (binary) disc images is not so evident on regular old school CD (700mb) images, size of the ISO/MODE1/2048 version of it will always be less. I bet they didn't even include a .CUE file as well, since they are "probably" not following any standard.

Anyway, ISO9660 disc images in binary form should always be named .BIN and include a .CUE file. There is a probability that I am wrong, maybe it is some kind of new ISO that doesn't follow any Standards (I really doubt it ), but I will try to acquire the released "ISO" to verify it myself. I hope that if my theory is right, these release groups choose to release future disc images as BIN/CUE, just to avoid any confusion with already circulating ISOs.

Reason to Release new "ISO"s - I doubt that the reason of releasing such "ISO"s is because Sony could detect regular ISO/MODE1/2048 (LOL ). The Cobra Optic Drive Emulator, was probably designed to read data as the real BD-Drive reads it, so when it cannot find the original 'synchronization data', 'header', 'error check data', etc... it will most probably give read error.

Just to confirm my point, I made a custom disc image following ISO9660/MODE1/2352 standard of "BCES01435-[PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale]", and the resulting size is 6.75 GB, very similar indeed to the one released by "TL" group. If I made the custom disc image as ISO9660/MODE1/2048 then the resulting size would be approx. 5.84 GB.

I just need to acquire one piece of the release made by "TL" and I will be able to confirm if the ISO is a BIN named and published incorrectly without proper CUE. The difference between their size is approx. 13.48% [ ((6.75 - 5.84) / 6.75) * 100 ]. So if this difference rate is same in all PS3 disc images ripped as ISO/MODE1/2352, then a 40 GB game would have approx. 5.39 GB more when saved as BIN/CUE. SeeYa!

Still can't get too excited at tearing apart a PS3 console, soldering tiny wires inside and requiring additional hardware to play PS3 games with the advent of PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware a few years ago though.

Below is the 3K3y Firmware v2.10 and v2.11 Public Beta with details from ModRobert as follows:

Download: 3k3y_v2_10_public_beta.zip / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / 3k3y_v2_11_public_beta.zip

Notes for 3K3y Firmware v2.10 Public Beta:

For now, while waiting for 3k3y isotools swap disk support, you can use the Cobra ODE Bypass 4.55 tools to create swap ISO file.

Burn with ImgBurn, use quality BD-R, Ritek worked fine for me. I've read some claim BD-RE will work, but not in my tests, I tried with Verbatim BD-RE (rewritable) and it failed. Also, make sure you use an original game disk which is single layer (25GB), check the Cobra Anti-ODE security bypass manual for more info.

Setting SWAPTIMEOUT over 30 seconds made the PS3 XMB freeze, that is the reason I limit it to 25 seconds. If you get freeze problem in XMB, try lowering the value, or remove the SWAPTIMEOUT setting in 3key.cfg, then it will default to 15 seconds.

The remote display will show "Load SWP disk" or "Load PS3 disk" when the time comes, you need to quickly open the cover/lid and swap to the requested disc and close the cover before SWAPTIMEOUT reaches zero, if too slow the PS3 XMB will detect the open cover switch and give error, in this case try to start over, if that also fails, power off the PS3 and restart.

If you don't own a 3k3y remote you need to pay attention when the motor stops, but this can be tricky, hopefully someone with a remote can post a video on YouTube so you get an idea how the swap is done. During game updates the BD drive can stop without actually requiring the swap disk, if so just leave the PS3 disk in there when updates are installing on the XMB screen.

When installing a PS3 game update there will be several swaps between SWP (swap) disc and PS3 (original) disc, also, after a game has an update installed on the PS3 hard drive, there will be one extra swap to insert original disc during normal gameplay.

If you manage to screw up the swapping, or if it fails by itself, turn off the PS3 super slim using power button and start over. Pay attention to drive motor sound and be careful, since it can spin with open lid theoretically due to the cover switch handling by 3k3y. If a PS3 game update was installing during a bad swap you might have to delete it in XMB, because the update file can be corrupt (signed with the wrong disk loaded).

3K3y Firmware v2.10 Public Beta Changelog:

  • Cobra 4.55 ISO tools supprt, COBRAISO=Y setting added to 3key.cfg

3K3y Firmware v2.11 Public Beta Changelog:

  • Fix for 3Dump.bin users on OFW 4.55, game updates and quit game works, FIX3DUMP=Y setting added to 3key.cfg.

thanks again

Also the 3K3y v2.08 Beta for PS3 Super Slim is announced:

After a few busy days of developing (and hacking) I'm proud to announce 3K3y v2.08 Beta.

3K3y v2.08 Beta PS3 Super Slim (4k) changelog:

  • OFW 4.55 swap disc support with game updates working
  • No wire/soldering required for cover switch handling
  • SWAPTRICK=Y setting added to 3key.cfg
  • SWAPTIMEOUT=xx (between 5 - 25 seconds) setting added to 3key.cfg
  • Optional LANGUAGE=P0T setting added to 3key.cfg, giving P0T-NOoDLE font on the remote display in English (Thanks Sir Garbagetruck aka Lastebil for the heads up)

This list might change before public beta and final release.

UglyClicker is working on the swap disc support in 3k3y IsoTools, so that should be ready in time for public release.

Unfortunately my attempts to solve the 'game update' and 'quit game' freeze problems for 3Dump.bin users (who have drive key) failed, so I doubt any fix for that will make it into this release.

3K3y Users: Stay Away from OFW 4.55, 3K3y IsoTools v1.34.9 Out!

To quote from modrobert: After reading the news about Cobra ODE failing for some PS3 models I sacrificed a 3k3y 3KR (3KS-R) install on a PS3 Super Slim (4k), updated to OFW 4.55, and it failed to load GTA5 after that (just hangs in XMB)!

So, for now, don't update to OFW 4.55. Only 'pass-thru' mode works so far in my tests on OFW 4.55, will try some more games.

Users with older fat PS3 consoles have reported success with 3k3y on OFW 4.55, so this seem to affect newer consoles, as Team Cobra suggested.





IsoTools 1.34.9 by UglyClicker

As requested by a vast amount of users, here is the update notification for the new version of IsoTools.

The new version will automatically install when you open IsoTools. As of now, only version 9 IRD files can be uploaded, you can also download the package manually:

Download: IsoTools-1.34.9.rar / IsoTools-Binaries-1.34.9.zip

1.34.9

  • Fixed exception when ejecting a disc

2014-02-12: Do NOT update to firmware 4.55

As many of you already know, Sony released update 4.55, which apparently blocks the 3k3y, Cobra and E3. We are looking for a solution. In the mean time, do NOT update, and monitor the forums for progress.

2014-05-06: 3K3y: Firmware 4.55 update

We have been looking into a solution that doesnt require a boot disk, but unfortunately we have not had any success yet. We will now make an update (with swap) for 4.55 users.

Hello everyone, there is a method to change the psn id on the console with 3k3y?

I've already tried IDPs dumper but nothing, I also tried to install psidpatch from multiman but it did not work. What can I do?

Below are the IsoTools 1.34 - IsoTools 1.34.6 & 1.34.8 updates from UglyClicker alongside 3Key Firmware 2.07, as follows:

1.34.3:

  • Updated IRD version to 9, no changes, but a lot easier method to calculate the hash
  • Fixed auto upload IRD file
  • Manager ISO now contains PS1/PS2 games as well
  • Fixed video while mounting a game (thanks Harryoke)
  • Extract ISO now also extracts zero byte files
  • Fixed crash after extraction
  • Create ISO (homebrew) now always creates a correct disc, even with a small amount of files (couldn't open the disc in IsoBuster for instance)
  • Add support to make an empty update region (saves 256 MB of zeroes). This only works in homebrew/manager isos when no update file exists.
  • Add a check to fix invalid marked ISO files (encrypted while data is decrypted, and vice versa)
  • Added sortorder on none/date/filename while creating manager iso (in settings)
  • Fixed boolean arguments in isotoolscon
  • Fixed wrong path in IsoCreator under Mono (when running under linux)
  • Added JB Validator to validate a JB rip against an IRD file (same process when you create an ISO with IRD).
  • Fixed IsoMenuCreator
  • Merged IsoMenuCreator and IsoTools:
  • IsoTools only supports PS3 isos (interface limitation, not a code limitation)
  • IsoMenuCreator supports both PS3 and XBOX isos, xk3y firmware still needs support for this

1.34.4 - Bugfix release:

  • Fixed issue with 3K3Y Manager and > 50 games
  • PS1/PS2 game detection improved

27/11/13 - 3K3y firmware update 2.07:

Note: If you ever want to generate the latest gyo.db in real time (3k3y.com/ird_files/gyo) and update your 3k3y with the file it generates.

Download: 02.07.zip

New Features:

  • Improved handling of PS3 Extra menu ISO
  • Support for PS3 4004
  • Improved handling of PS3 Extra menu ISO (logical partition)
  • Removed requirement for PS3 boot disk when loading PS3 Extra menu
  • Dont eject disk when console sends stop/start cmd (308R/310R)

3k3y firmware UPDATE v2.07:

Instructions

1. Extract the files "rootfs", "uImage" ,, "3key.cfg" and "gyo.db" (the fpga updates are not included in this update. If you already did the latest fpga updates from 2.02 or bought your 3k3y recently you don't need to update again. If your FPGA is not up to date please download 2.02 and use the fpga from there. Why is it left out? People are not reading and doing the wrong updates so this will filter some of them out!)

2. Open 3key.cfg with Notepad and configure it if needed. If you do not wish to change the settings on your 3k3y then you do not need to edit OR update your 3k3y with this file, leave it out!

2.1 Add the files to the root folder of a Flash Drive or HDD. (Make sure to "eject" the drive properly from the PC, it may otherwise cause corrupt files)

3. Connect the Flash drive or HDD to your 3k3y remote and wait for the 3k3y to start the update.
3.1 The remote OLED will now display "UPDATING - PLEASE WAIT" for about 35 seconds. (Do not turn off your PS3 or disconnect the remote while updating. FPGA updates will take a little longer)

4. Once the update is completed, the OLED will display "UPDATE COMPLETE - RESET" Reboot your PS3 and the 3k3y should now be updated to the latest firmware.

5. That's it! Continue to enjoy using 3k3y with the new features!

NOTE! If you use the same drive as you store content on to do the update with, then its recommended (not needed) to remove the "rootfs", "uImage" & "3key.cfg" and any other files from the root of your drive after a firmware update. Since keeping them there will cause the 3k3y to check the files if they are a newer firmware version then stored on your 3k3y micro SD card, and because of that take longer time for your HDD to be recognized.
