June 10, 2012 // 9:33 pm - Following up on his previous updates, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer Heden of DeLiGhT has made available the source code for his PS3 SELF / SPRX Decrypter v0.6 BETA homebrew application below.

Download: PS3 SELF / SPRX Decrypter Homebrew Application Source Code / PS3 SELF / SPRX Decrypter Homebrew Application v0.6 / SELF SPRX Decrypter 0.6 - Source PKG.rar (Mirror)

To quote from the included ReadMe file:


12/04/10 - V0.5B - Initial BETA Release

  • Decrypting internal PS3's SELF/SPRX files [BETA - The decrypter hangs on some files]

12/12/10 - V0.6B - Second BETA Release

  • More stability (no hangs anymore)
  • Much more files can now be decrypted
  • 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 not yet capable to decrypt all files (coming soon !)

Some devs asked for the sources. I decided to release them. This tool may help to decrypt system files on DEX consoles

Greetings fly out to (no order):

  • Rupan (nice works dude !)
  • CrashSerial
  • Defyboy
  • Kakaroto
  • NDT
  • eussNL
  • Mas
  • Naehrwert
  • rms
  • The others I've forgotten...

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!
