June 26, 2012 // 8:15 pm - Today developer PsDev has updated PS3Tools GUI Edition v2.0 to version 2.1, which now includes PlayStation 3 Retail PKG decryption and extraction.

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
  • Fixed bugs and added some little features in EDAT tool
  • Doesn't take up as much memory

Also if I can port Rcomage to c# then expect that to be next release, it's hard porting c++ to c# though, but I'm trying, it has alot of code that needs converter.

Thanks to naehwert, KaKaRoToKS, geohot, Math, eussNL and of course Fail0verFlow! and anyone else I forgot.

I really can't believe on what RealPsDev wasting they his time (even if it is 5min lol), pointless app that we don't need and now someone will say *you should be grateful* and i am but not with something like this.

He even posted thread on how to dump LV0 but of course, others have to do it but no Dev who thinks he knows how.. basically same as math's walkthrough.

sorry if this sound disrespectful but we all hoping.

its not really that great app, plus if you place a OFW, it tells that CFW is there, no checking of actual files has been done.

Well, I hoped there'll be at least some CRC/MD5 checks on the CFW versions, so the user wouldn't occasionally install OFW... Oh well, pathetic

What a ridiculous ploy to get twitter followers. Is he really that needy?
