Resistance: Fall of Disc Based Encryption

350°
340w ago - We have been revisiting the aspects of the Blu-Ray disc encryption today. As we know every executable is encrypted, and those executables that are placed on game discs are encrypted once more.

This second layer of encryption can be quite the bother, as it hinders our efforts to explore the console. So we have created a tool that runs on Dev machines that automatically dumps the main encrypted file (EBOOT.BIN) to a PC, or Memory Card.

The PS3News.com EBOOT.BIN dumper may be publically released in coming days, it is ready to go and is installable as a PKG, however it will only work on a Debug/Tool console!

This file is void of the Disc Based layer encryption, it is just a SELF. The SELF is encrypted as well, however we are much more familiar with the SELF file format, than with the randomness of an EBOOT.BIN.

Below is a picture of the utility, as well as screenshots of the following files, in their SELF form. The files were taken from Resistance: Fall Of Man:

EBOOT.BIN 9.15 MB (9,602,456 bytes) / game.self 8.22 MB (8,625,856 bytes)

PS3 gets unofficial regional user faces

50°
340w ago - McBacon was playing around with the XMB options and noticed that you can change the happy faces in the user menu but there is no regional icons options.

He expects that this was probably due to Sony not encouraging multiple accounts across different countries but he himself has gone on and created small custom ones.

To quote: So I was messing around in the XMB and noticed that you can change the little happy faces in the Users menu, but I was shocked to see that Sony didn't include any regional icons.

They probably don't want to encourage multiple accounts across different countries, but as most of us at GAF do so I created these little custom ones.
