To quote, roughly translated: Here's a little house to hide and restore the contents in your IDPS dumps easily program. This so you can upload and post them on the net (for verification, patch ...) without the risk of being robbed that precious IDPS.
In fact, nobody should ignore the risk of theft when a dump is upload on canvas. Even if all precautions are taken (send link by MP, addressed to trust...), from the time your dump is hosted publicly, any search engine worthy of the name will be able to find.
Especially if the file name is self explanatory. In short, the quick fix is to change (hide) the IDPS in the 'dump before the upload. PS3 IDPS Hiding Tool does just that.
- Compatible with NOR dumps (for E3 flasher dumps it is best to do a reverse byte with Flowrebuilder before using the program.)
- Compatible with NAND dumps "interleaved" (not compatible dumps gross)
- Do not take load dumps converted DEX (with Target ID 0x82 on EID0)
- Mask only the last seven offsets the IDPS to allow generic data available (Target ID, SKU, chassis).
- Extraction and preservation of the IDPS in a separate file
- Restoration of the IDPS from a backup file or from the original dump
