December 4, 2010 // 9:05 pm - A few days back graf_chokolo released a PS3 SELF Decrypter PSGroove payload, and today Heden of DeLiGhT has released at PSGroove (linked above) a PlayStation 3 SELF / SPRX Decrypter application followed by an update below.

Download: PS3 SELF / SPRX Decrypter V0.5 Beta / PS3 SELF / SPRX Decrypter V0.6 Beta

To quote: Unlike graf_chokolo's method, DeLiGhT's application does not require a special payload to decrypt.

Simply place the SELF/SPRX you want decrypted into /dev_hdd0/game/DCRY00001/USRDIR/SOURCE/ Then run the SELF/SPRX DECRYPTER from the XMB, and finally retrieve the decrypted files from /dev_hdd0/game/DCRY00001/USRDIR/DESTINATION/

From the ReadMe File: SELF/SPRX DECRYPTER - V0.5 BETA

12/04/10 - V0.5B - Initial BETA Release
- Decrypting internal PS3's SELF/SPRX files
[BETA - The decrypter hangs on some files]

GameOS utilizes files to make the console work (I won't give details) These files (SELF = EXE, SPRX = DLL) are stored in /dev_flash. This tool enables to decrypt these SELF/SPRX files. Such a decrypter will only help people who know what they do The application is stable enough even if it hangs on some files.

Howto :

First, install the .PKG provided in the archive.

- Put the file you want to decrypt into :

- Launch the decrypter
- Get the decrypted files from :

The current version decrypts only one file per launch.

Make sure to have only one SELF/SPRX file in /SOURCE/ directory

This decrypter does not use the grafchokolo's payload nor HV syscalls.

Thanks! Time to play


bdp_disccheck_plugin.sprx - PS3 simply locks on black screen
bdp_BDMV.self - decrypter shows first two ================= lines and does nothing.
bdp_BDVD.self - same as above

For the last two I can press [X] and exit to XMB. For the 1st one - hard reset only.

Tried some of those in /sys/external and /sys/internal and it worked...

If you can't download attachments it may be due to a setting on your browser, such as a security one or a .zip/.rar file extension association issue.

Try this link and report back what happens exactly:

I believe this tool has been available already long time ago, but author didn't want to share it. Just because graf_chockolo is close to provide the same, this guy released it just to be the first

I think there are many such secrets in somebody's pocket. But they won't be opened before somebody else will close to do the same.

Anyway, i appreciate to this author for such useful tool!
