Sponsored Links
137w ago - Following up on his previous revision, today PlayStation 3 developer PsDev has updated PS3Tools GUI Edition to version 2.6 which now includes PS3 CEX to DEX functionality as outlined below.

Download: PS3Tools GUI Edition v2.6

To quote: Hi everybody, here to release my new update.

PS3Tools GUI Edition v2.6 Changes:

  • Added CEX 2 DEX
  • New Interface
  • Fixed PKG decryptor button
  • Fixed EDAT Tool button
  • Removed second GUI form
  • Minor bug fixes and code changes to perform better

I have been asked a lot recently to add in a debug PKG decryptor because all I had is a Retail decryptor & extractor. Well I did, but last minute checks, I noticed it was not performing the way I wanted it too.

So instead of releasing faulty code/tool on my program and say it works half way, I'd rather withdraw the feature until a further update when I can have it working properly to my standards and what should be most.

PlayStation 3 CEX to DEX:

This whole CEX to DEX is going around, I felt like adding it to GUI form had to be done so, I jumped on band wagon and did it. When going to use this Make sure you have a CEX Nor flashed named "CEXFLASH.bin" and the eid_root_key.bin in the program folder.

Run the tool and it will output a DEXFLASH.bin... easy as pie. Note* opensll required!!

Thanks to naehrwert, KaKaRoToKS, andbey0nd Math, HsRiena, geohot, eussNL, zecoxao and ofcourse the MAIN team I cannot forgot. Fail0verFlow also tthousand for always helping with everything, you're awesome buddy I never give you enough appreciation and thanks!!

Finally, from Sony PS3 hacker evilsperm:

I will not be going into detail on how to compile the metldrpwn or how to compile and use libeeid. Oh and if you don't know what scp is go google it because im not gonna be getting into all that, this isnt a spoon feeding tut

1. dump nor (from xmb, hardware flasher, or petitboot) if from petitboot you will need a flash drive or external hdd. make sure you hold on to this backup or your FUCT if something goes wrong.
2. extract nor (f0f tools or the windows nor unpack)
3. install rebug otheros++
4. install rebug otheros++ preptools
5. boot into petitboot
Now this is where it will start to get tricky because you will need to either scp files or use a flashdrive/external hdd, I use scp because its fast and easy
6. READ eEID : dd if=/dev/ps3nflasha skip=$((0x2F000)) of=/cex_eid.bin bs=1 count=$((0x10000))
7. scp cex_eid.bin to your computer
8. cd / rm cex_eid.bin
8. scp your metldr to the PS3 from your computer
9. run the metldrpwn on your metldr and dump the eid_root_key
10. scp your eid_root_key from your PS3 to your computer
11. use libeeid or whatever that other cex>dex tool is and convert your eid to dex (using the cex_eid.bin > dex_eid.bin)
12. scp your new dex_eid.bin to the PS3
13. WRITE eEID: dd if=dex_eid.bin of=/dev/ps3nflasha bs=1 seek=$((0x2F000)) count=$((0x10000))
14. reboot
15. if you're not bricked you will still be in cex FW just install DEX fw and poof your done

LAST WORDS OF WARNING:

If you brick its 100% you're fault and you didn't follow the instructions the the letter, or you just did something wrong all together. Don't ask me what went wrong cuz I won't have a clue nor do I care if you brick seeing I warned you to have a hardware flasher just in case.

Sorry if that sounds harsh but if you don't think you can do this then you shouldn't be trying to mess with your nor in the first place because YOU CAN PERM BRICK!

Rename the .bin's for use with this gui...

Note: After booting to gameOS from petitboot (just after writing the nor, which only a very small section is actually changed) it is still booting the cex firmware that is installed. It isn't on debug fw yet, so there are no debug options. All this does is allow you to install a debug firmware.

Following up on his previous release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer PsDev has updated PS3Tools GUI Edition to version 2.0 which now incorporates the PS3 EDAT Tools with the complete changelog detailed below.

Download: PS3Tools GUI Edition v2.0

To quote: I collaborated now listen, PsDev back with the brand new edition. Yes, yes. Me and SnowyDew have collaborated and I added his magnificant tools to mine It was a struggle getting it to execute properly, but I finally got rid of all the errors and combined them for the best experience.

  • Changes, Decrypt and Re-encrypt edat's successfully
  • iso.bin.edat extraction
  • Decrypt eboot.pbp's / eboot.bins for further game modifiying
  • Decryption of act.dat and rif keys
  • Print coreos image info

Snowydew: so the decryption as it stands right now, an do iso.bin.edat, requires idps, rif and act.dat for the games. re-encryption i believe it needs the “fake” signed ones, as well as an idps (not sure on the idps) however the second method only requires the idps and the .rap file. this does not cover licenseing games i believe (It could, but we haven’t tested it) the re-encryption algo is in the encryption one, but again haven’t been able to test it completely (reason I was asking around on twitter awhile back)

Thanks to naehwert, snowydew, KaKaRoToKS, geohot, math and any one else I forgot.

Finally, in related news today belioc has leaked what he claims are some PlayStation 3 Lv0 Opcodes (below) and has credited PsDev for them, as stated below:

Although I am leaking this, I am still gonna give credit to who got these, that is PsDev. OpCodes (Operation codes) are the operation to be performed in a instruction set of the processor.

Here are the lv0 operation codes. A lot are unknown so it's really hard to say what function they're doing, but the function offset is provided. When I recieved the file it has about 10MB of NOP (No operation performed) about 1MB of operations being performed.

First Set:

[Register or Login to view code]

Second Set:

[Register or Login to view code]

Shortly afterwards, PsDev stated the following rebuttal though: Lol this is false, me and naehwert talked it over the opcodes are just a reading that is false due to the lv0 being encrypted. the BL is what decrypt the lv0. How would I dissemble a encrypted lv0?

Haha last time I share something that could have potential (it don't) with someone.

Just run the lv0 in a DisArm decoder (don't have to be DisArm) it will bot the self and tell the opcodes (that are false).

Thanks naehwert. Good bye.

We need 3.60+ keys to decrypt eboots, the parts of newer firmwares (i.e. loaders), etc... This tool lets you do everything you can do today with the convenience of using a GUI.

Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer PsDev has updated PS3Tools GUI Edition to version 1.1B adding a Dev_Flash dumper as outlined in the changlog below.

Download: PS3Tools GUI Edition v1.1B Application

To quote: CHANGES:

  • Added Dev_flash and Dev_flash3 dumper
  • Removed conf editor
  • Removed space wasting buttons
  • Added other tools section
  • Cleaner GUI
  • No extra tab screen
  • Faster
  • Less memory by about 4mb

BUG FIXES:

  • No more random cmd box popping up.
  • Fixed memory issue
  • Fixed permissions glitch

FEATURES:

  • Can unpack any PS3 firmwares dev_flash.
  • Can unpack any "PS3" Firmware up to date. Gets really fast after first or second use.
  • A console is built into the program showing you the exact log a cmd would.
  • Can Decrypt PS3/PSP retail PKG files (Signed by sony installable via OFW).
  • Can readself of, Appldr, lv0, lv1ldr, lv2ldr, isoldr, EBOOT.BIN or if any of the things that you want to read are not listed on a button you can run a custom command to do it, for example: aim_spu_module.self just type that in where it says input and it will read it. So any file that is possible to use via readself, can be done in a fast manor 1-2 sec.
  • An awesome Core_os_package tool that can decrypt, extract and encrypt the Core_os_package.pkg all in about 1-2 sec.
  • Sign pkg for 3.55 or 3.41
  • UnSELF a file.
  • Build SELF a file.
  • Whenever a tar file is modified, it's permissions need to be set, this tool can do that for you. fix the tar file for the following FW. retail fw up to 3.72, debug fw up to 3.72 and retail and debug fw 4.0.

HOW TO USE:

Lets use a example: If you want to unpack a ps3 update just get the PS3UPDAT.PUP (Don't change the name of any file in ps3 FW keep original) and put in tool folder, run my program click unpack and it will unpack it.

So like if you want to fix tar make sure the update_files.tar stays the same name and put in the main folder where program is located.. same for anyfile keep the original name. So it's pretty simpe just drag the file that you want the tool to do something with and keep the original name.

Here is a video I made (I am pretty bad a videos) to help it' a tutorial that covers everything. If some one else could make a better one that would be awesome. THIS VIDEO IS FOR THE BETA VERSION. STILL HELPFUL




NOTES:

PS3Tools GUI Edition will create two new files for the Core_os_package. "decrypted_core_os" and "CORE_OS_PACKAGE_ENCRYPTED.pkg" don't change the name of the decrypted one or else you won't be able to encrypt it.
