Uncharted 3 PS3 Patch 1.08 Incoming, Save Your Cinema Files Now

250°
126w ago - Today Naughty Dog developer Eric-ND has announced that the Uncharted 3 PS3 patch 1.08 is incoming, however, he warns that users should save their Cinema files to YouTube before it goes live.

To quote from his post on the official PlayStation board: Save your Cinema Files now!

Hi, The next patch (1.08) is coming very soon. We'll have a full list of all the changes that will happen as soon as it's been fully tested and signed off. One very important item we want to inform you about right now is your cinema files.

As soon you update to the next patch all previous cinema files you had will not work and will crash the game. In other words any cinema files you recorded pre-patch 1.08 won't work once patch 1.08 is installed.

Therefore we recommend that you upload any cinema files you currently want to save to YouTube.

As for the exact timing on the patch we'll keep you updated here on the forums and via the Naughty Dog Blog as well as on our Facebook and Twitter. For now it'll be best to get in the habit of uploading your favorite cinema files to YouTube as often as you can.

Please let us know in this thread if you have any questions. Full details on the next patch are coming soon!

350°
128w ago - Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation Vita developer PsDev has made available a Multi PKG Tool which now allows users to decrypt and extract PS3, PSP, and PS Vita PKG files.

To quote: This Tool can decrypt and extract Playstation Vita, Playstation Portable or Playstation 3 retail pkg.

It uses the PSP/PS3 AES key that is used to decrypt and extract PSP/PS3 retail pkg. However, No longer can Playstation Vita PKG over beta/retail 1.00+ be decrypted and extracted with the PSP AES key.

AES Keys used

I would like to give a big, big, big thanks to Mathieulh, Because I used his AES Engine to decrypt PS3 retail pkg, Without that it could have taken me way longer to make this tool.


 

PS3 HIP2HIS - PARAM.HIP to PARAM.HIS Changelog File Converter

350°
131w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer deroad has released a PS3 HIP2HIS PARAM.HIP to PARAM.HIS changelog file converter application and related documentation below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

To quote: This is a new software to convert a PARAM.HIP file to a PARAM.HIS (HIS are used by the PS3 as a change-log file).

It can be viewed by going Game -> Triangle -> Update History
This file needs to be located in the same folder as the PARAM.SFO ( /dev_hdd0/game/TITLE_ID/PARAM.HIS ).

Finally, from ps3devwiki.com/wiki/PARAM.HIP:

This file is used to display the changelog texts of a HDD game (category HG), game patches (category GD with APP_VER), and gamedata (category GD without APP_VER). Texts are displayed under the option "Update History" when pressing triangle over his icon.

PARAM.HIP files are the "source" file, contained in the root of a Install_Package.pkg. When the package is installed the system adds at the beggining of the "source" file 10 bytes containing his timestamp (date and time when is installed), and copyes it in the install folder as PARAM.HIS.

PARAM.HIS files can be updated by consecutive installations of more .HIP files over...

1300°
132w ago - Here is my first PS3 4.10 CFW (Custom Firmware) / MFW (Modified Firmware) which includes the Install Package Files option in the PlayStation 3 XMB for those interested.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] ( Warning: Read Notes below before installing!)

For those curious, this PS3 CFW / MFW is a modified 4.10 [Register or Login to view links] via PS3MFW Builder intended for installation on PS3 3.55 Retail consoles.

Changes:

1. Custom Coldboot
2. Kiosk/Shop XMB restrictions have been removed so PlayStation Home/PlayStation Store work fine.
3. Modified to allow installation of retail signed packages

Notes: DO NOT install this unless you have an E3 flasher or Progskeet type device to downgrade your PS3 to 3.55. Unfortunately 3.55 signed PS3 homebrew does not install/run. Also be aware it doesn't load any PlayStation 3 game backups so you will need to have the game disc to play them.

To Unlock the XMB: Hold...
 

Video: Adding 'Install Package Files' on PS3 4.00 Dev_Flash Mod

1300°
136w ago - Below is a video demonstrating my PS3 4.00 Dev_Flash modification, which simply allows users to install Retail signed package (PKG) files from the PlayStation 3 XMB.

Note: This modification does not allow the installation / usage of unsigned content / PS3 homebrew etc. This is purely a convenience hack and is aimed for use by those who have hardware flashers which allow dual boot.

After technodon's work creating a modified kiosk dev_flash which lets you install retail signed package files. The restrictions of having to use kiosk firmware inspired me to find a way to add "Install Package Files" for retail firmware.

This is hack does the following things:

  • adds "★ Install Package Files" and "★ /app_home/PS3_GAME/" to "GAME" on the XMB (allowing the user to install retail package files anytime they want)
  • adds other debug functions which are small but still there
  • does not give access to "★ Debug Setting" (reasons for this are explained below)

Installation instructions:

This installation procedure is the similar to technodon's original dev_flash hdd swap procedure

For this...
