That done the trick. Thanks Chief!
Also from aldostools: I have updated my PS3 Tools
In this version I moved all the tools to a "tools" folder. Just run the PS3 Tools Menu.exe. The titleid and md5 databases are updated.
The "PKG ContentID" application now acts as a hub for various tasks from Windows Explorer:
- Double click on a PUP to view its content using ifcaro' PUPView
- Double click on a PKG to view its content using ifcaro' PKGView
- Double click on a BIN, SELF or SPRX to view the info using scetools
- Ctrl+Enter on a BIN, SELF or SPRX to resign the file using scetools (includes 3.60 keys)
- Shift+Enter on a PKG to extract the PKG
- Ctrl+Enter on a PKG to view the PKG Content ID
- Shift+Ctrl+Enter on a PKG to repack a retail PKG as debug PKG - useful for DEX users.
- Right click on a PKG and select Make PKG to create a PKG.
Almost all the tools now return to the menu clicking on the right-top blue icon
Added drag & drop support to Create PS3_EXTRA and PS3RIP. PS3 Game Updates is included in the zip.
Note: if you need to use your own batch to resign the EBOOTs, create a file named "custom_eboot_fix.bat" in the folder of scetool.
I programmed a FixELF.exe (16kb) that does the hex replace (same as binmay - freecode.com/projects/binmay). But it is specialized for this this task if no parameter is provided, it asumes EBOOT.ELF "24 13 BC C5 F6 00 33 00 00 00 36" "24 13 BC C5 F6 00 33 00 00 00 34"
I just integrated it to my PS3 Tools, so to resign an EBOOT.BIN just double-click on it hodling Ctrl (or press Ctrl+Enter on it) and it makes a resigned EBOOT.BIN and EBOOT.BIN_ORIGINAL
It is required to run once the PKG ContentID.exe to associate the files.
