PS3Tools GUI Edition v2.1 Out, Retail PKG Decryption and Extraction

1000°
94w ago - Today developer PsDev has updated PS3Tools GUI Edition v2.0 to version 2.1, which now includes PlayStation 3 Retail PKG decryption and extraction.

Download: PS3Tools GUI Edition v2.1 / PS3Tools GUI Edition v2.1 (Mirror)

To quote: The major addition is a Retail PKG decryption and extraction tool. I also removed the extra tools as it wasn't needed, and wasted space, most external programs are gonna be taken out and be coded so it's internal. That way space, folder size and your Computers memory is more free.

I need to thank math because, this uses his AES engine and without it I would have had to code one on my own. (Don't worry I had his permission). It was truly a pain incorporating this into my program, much harder than the EDAT tools.

Changelog v2.1:

  • Decryption of Retail PKG
  • Extraction of Retail PKG
  • Bug fixes
  • Removed external programs

Video: Rebug PS3 CFW 100% Booting Debug on a Retail PS3 Unit

139w ago - What started out several months ago as a PS3 Retail to Debug WIP Project is slowly nearing completion, with GaryOPA receiving word from PlayStation 3 hacker Cyberskunk alongside a video of Rebug PS3 CFW 100% booting in Debug mode on a Retail PS3 console.

To quote: In this video you can see the PS3 first booting and then BEEPING. This is normal, if someone installs an full official DEBUG PUP via Service Mode on a Retail Console.

Next you see Cyber booting on his PS3 using a USB Jailbreak Dongle! This time the PS3 boots-up and is a fully 100% DEBUG firmware, no crashing or beeping, loads right into the XMB!

This is all possible by the Codename: REBUG team developing their own "custom payload" loaded for usage on the old v3.41 Jailbreak dongles!

From Cyberskunk: Hey Gary, The vid we sent you uses a dongle to boot the DEX COREOS on retail console as we thought that to be more conclusive since you can mimic the DEX XMB quite easily..

We can however boot it without the dongle but before everyone gets excited being able to boot the DEX COREOS and getting all of its functions up and running without rehashing (converting) your console are two completely...
