111w ago - Following up on PSP2PS3 v1.7.3 for CEX / DEX by szczuru, today Italian PlayStation 3 developers at BiteYourConsole have updated their PSP Minis on PS3 application dubbed PSPMinis / Bite to version 1.2 with the changes below.

Download: PSPMinis / Bite v1.2 / PSPMinis / Bite v1.2 (Mirror) / PSPMinis / Bite v1.2 (Mirror #2) / PSPMinis / Bite v1.1 / PSP_EBOOT.rar by Agrippa90 / PSPcipher.7z (Can't decrypt some tags) by lex3a / PSP MINIS 1.1 GUI by israyel

To quote, roughly translated: Based on the frequent releases of the developer szczuru for his excellent work PSP2PS3 arrived at version 1.7.3 we have decided to release a program that simplifies the steps to follow.

Drag a file EBOOT.PBP, a PKG file to be extracted or an ISO file in the window that you see in the program. Click PspMinis PspMinis CEX DEX or according to your console.

From this screen, we can extract the PKG file included above, to convert our ISO file EBOOT.PBP, or if we can create an EBOOT.PBP file ISO.BIN and MINIS.bin. The program creates the game in PKG format to install on the PS3 in 3 simple clicks of the mouse. Convert, Create, Build.

Batch files have been translated into Italian for a quick and easy understanding.

1.7.3 PSP2PS3 Changelog:

  • MAKE_EDATS_CEX: Starting EDAT when the user chooses to unpack the ISO.
  • MAKE_PACKAGE: Fixed an issue when the sleep function does not exist in the system.
  • ISO2EBOOT: DONOR.PBP the file is no longer required.
  • Fake_np replaced, support for files larger than 728 mb, no longer requires the donor file thanks to Aldo (aldostools).

Changelog 1.2 Bite program:

  • Adding psp icon in the program.
  • Adding sounds to mouse clicks on the buttons.
  • Fixed other minor bugs.

From szczuru: PSP isn't needed anymore to decrypt EBOOTs I'm testing this method since morning and working ok.

Download JPCPS and in Options->Configuration-> Crypto TAB enable 'Extract decrypted EBOOT.BIN files to TMP folder' option.

Then load encrypted EBOOT.BIN using "Load file" option. Decrypted EBOOT.BIN will be saved in TMP directory.

From $n!pR: In Dev C++ you can just install the zlib package. aldostools, is there anything stopping us from using the real SFO info from iso in the EBOOT.PBP (Title and CID)? Instead of DONOR.PBP's SFO info? Editing the src of fakebig_np you provided...

From aldostools: Well the code is not mine and I haven't tested it, but looking in the .h files, I guess it could be possible to replace in UCES00310.h, the static bytes listed below with some values received from a parameter (unless some of the other bytes contain a hash of the headers):

From zecoxao: i don't know if this has been told, but simply EBOOT.PBP is enough rename, no need for NP.PBP on npdpc v2.

Another "mod" based on the awesome work from szczuru (BRAIN) 1.7.3. I have been trying to streamline the procedure to basically 1 single click: put the file (pkg, cso or iso) in the PSP2PS3 folder and run the proper batch.

Download: PSP2PS3_v1.7.3a_CEX-DEX.7z

The "MakeEDATs.exe" will fill the CID and press the buttons automatically and auto create the PKG. It is a "beta" that is focused on the PSP conversion for CEX, so the DEX procedure could not be working. If there are not major issues, I could be integrating this to the Windows context menu of the ps3tools collection... if szczuru is ok with that.

Using my "mod" 1.7.3a are 2 steps:

If your game is in CSO format:

1. put the .cso of CC:FF7 in PSP2PS3 folder (make sure there are not other .cso)
2. run "1b. CSO2ISO.bat" and wait until it finish.

If your game is already in ISO format:

1. put the .iso of CC:FF7 in PSP2PS3 folder and rename it as NP.ISO
2. run "1b. ISO2EBOOT.bat" and wait until it finish.

Here is another "mod" v1.7.3c: Download: PSP2PS3_v1.7.3c_CEX-DEX.7z

Changes:

  • Added support for context menu: run "Right_click_context_menu - CSO & PBP.bat" as administrator (In my tests currently CSO context is worked, for some reason PBP didn't show. I will add ISO to the context menu later... this is still a WIP)
  • The PKG now uses the original name of the CSO
  • ISO2PBP.bat now uses the old version of fake_np 1.0 if the ISO image is smaller than 133.4MB (this helps to speed up the conversion & makes the final PKG smaller)
  • Fix: Added option to include or not the load_tmp/open_tmp/save_tmp in the placeholder.
  • Disabled the question about upload the PKG to FTP (it can be enabled commenting the goto ftp_no in 3. MAKE_PACKAGE.bat)
  • Improved the speed of MakeEDATs.exe (now should work better)
  • More bug fixes (this version still doesn't use the CID as command line parameter from pink1... I will check it later)

Only EDATs and PKG should have the same Content ID. The content id of the EBOOT is not validated by the PS3.

In my tests:

  • EBOOT CID=Syphon, EDAT CID=Brave, PKG CID=Brave ---> OK
  • EBOOT CID=Syphon, EDAT CID=Syphon, PKG CID=Brave ---> Black Screen
  • EBOOT CID=Brave, EDAT CID=Brave, PKG CID=Brave ---> OK (but requires Brave from PSN)

From pink1: It doesn't get the contentID straight from the PBP first it dumps the BINs with mongoose.exe and then reads it from ISO.BIN with:

From BlackDaemon comes a video demonstrating a possibility of Minis on SEX-based MFW. To quote:

Let’s back a bit in time, when Kakaroto was making his HEN for OFW 4.xx. He said, that he was able to install pkg’s but can’t run it because it requires proper SELF signature. Minis doesn’t have any SELF files inside and could be packed as free content.

Well, i have done one experiment – on CFW 3.55 i installed those packages, updated to SEX-based MFW by TechnoDon and tried to run installed pseudo-minis. See, what happened on video (sorry for quality, unfortunately PS Vita can’t record it better). I have flasher, so it not a problem for me to go back to normal CFW.

From israyel (via naha09) comes the first English version of Bite 1.2 / PSP2PS3v1.7.3a CEX-DEX with details below, as follows:

Download: PSP MINIS 1.1 GUI

PSP MINIS 1.1 GUI Changelog:

  • Fixed issue with buttons and no resources
  • Made simple with menu strip
  • Also fixed directory issue need to be extracted to desktop

Finally, below are the initial PSPMinis v1.1 details for legacy purposes, roughly translated as follows:

We are pleased to present our latest project by BiteYourConsole, PSPMinis 1.1. The program contains all the files with bat (batch file contains a sequence of commands to the command interpreter system, usually Command.com or Cmd.exe).

If the program is drag an EBOOT.PBP, a PKG file to extract or file you want to convert and click DONOR.ISO our choice, whether to convert the title for the console or the console CEX DEX.

From here we have two possibilities, if we have an ISO image file we can convert an EBOOT.PBP, we can also extract a PKG file exists in the directory, the program will automatically extract the file in bytes.




Or if we have the EBOOT.PBP we can convert to our PS3, we can create an infinite number of packages with the ability to be able to change the ID PKG. The PKG file that is created can be found in directory Bite or in the tools folder.

Following up on their previous revision, Italian PlayStation 3 developer Francesco Lanzilotta at BiteYourConsole has updated the PSP Minis on PS3 application dubbed PSPMinis / PS3Minis / Bite to version 1.5.1 with the changes outlined below.

Download: Bite 1.5.1 (Setup) / Bite 1.5.1 Translation.rar‎ by RazorX

To quote, roughly translated: Bite H&E 1.5.1 Released

After a week, we at BiteYourConsole.net we release a new version of Bite that today comes to version 1.5.1. Bite h&e, this is the name of the new version which is for homebrew, emulation & why we decided to integrate three of the most popular emulators of the scene.

The three emulators are the famous PPSSPP of the PSP, which boasts numerous titles, the ePSXe regarding the PSOne and PlayStation 2 emulator, PCSX2.

Attention: the emulator ePSXe and PCSX2 BiOS need to operate, the bios for these emulators is owned by sony, unfortunately we cannot provide support on copyrighted material.

We wanted to totally change the menus, which as you can see from the pictures they approach remarkably in similarity to the XMB (XrossMediaBar), the graphical user interface developed by Sony.

The Homebrew section now is invoked by an external application that is easier in targeted projects.

Changelog:

  • Improved graphics from Flash, total compatibility on almost all operating systems.
  • Added three home sony psp emulators, psone and pstwo.
  • Added Bite, prompt new external program to develop homebrew for our ps3.
  • Fixed several minor bugs of the previous version.

Function Keys:

  • By clicking the Home button will return to the main menu
  • By clicking the circle next to the musical note pkg files possibly created will be moved to a folder called fact PKG from where they can be easily copied.
  • By clicking on the minus key will delete all temporary files that the program creates at the moment of conversion.

Finally, below is BiteYourFirmware - The Ultimate PS3 Custom Firmware Collection also from them with details as follows, roughly translated:

Download: BiteYourFirmware - The Ultimate Custom Firmware Collection

Today we decided to release the first collection of custom firmware for our beloved ps3, never search the Web, usenet and immediately ready to be installed on the console.

The program begins by giving us a nice video presentation with just claims of our blog, a way to repay us for the long time spent in execution.

The various custom firmware will be presented along with their code md5 (Message Digest algorithm 5, which means this is a cryptographic hashing algorithm) which have been checked thoroughly.

There are 12 of the most famous are the classic custom firmware kmeaw, the more secure and stable Rogero, but also the Rebug for the most geeks, in short, a fine collection of custom firmware to always keep on hand in order to avoid long searches.

  • Download directly without waiting.
  • Extract the contents and copy the PS3 folder on the stick, immediately ready for installation you have to do.

Can we use this to exploit 3k?

Is true or fake that we can run unsigned minis on ofw by "Transfer data utilities"??

Following up on their previous revisions, Italian PlayStation 3 developer Francesco Lanzilotta at BiteYourConsole has updated the PSP Minis on PS3 application dubbed PSPMinis / PS3Minis / Bite to version 1.5 which now includes PSP homebrew support in the changes below.

Download: Bite 1.5 (Setup) / Bite 1.5 (No Setup) / Bite 1.5 (No Setup) (Mirror)

To quote, roughly translated: Released Bite 1.5 with support Homebrew

The team BiteYourConsole is back in the evening releasing the new version of Bite with support in the realization of homebrew.

In this new version there are two good news, we have added the possibility to create backup with the new method remaster and the second novelty, we can, through steps dictated by Bite, convert PSP homebrew to run them on the PS3.

Interacting with Bite is simple, we can directly use the PSP console, the console because every button has its own function.

Bite Functions:

  • Down Arrow and Up Arrow: Opens and closes the console, is used for the construction of homebrew.
  • Left Arrow and Right Arrow: Opens or closes the help function.
  • Home button: Returns to the menu selection.
  • Volume function keys: Use the plus and minus buttons can decrease or increase the volume (if you load an mp3 file).
  • Circle button: Opens the folder where installed Bite.
  • Musical Note: Open the audio file (mp3)
  • Select button: Used to upload files cso, iso, eboot.pbp or files pkg.
  • Start button: This function is not available.
  • The keys angle handpiece squared circle eg: Generic buttons, used for various functions.

Once created, we can decide whether to pick them up files from the folder where they are created, in this case click on the Select button and copy the files so created, or through the transfer ftp server on PS3, the files will be saved in the package and installed with multiman with the bubble function, this function may still have some small bug, we will try to fix in a future release.

In the tools folder we can find a file backup_bat, use it in case some files can become corrupted, you can intervene by pulling back the batch files used by Bite.

Attention: For proper operation of Bite do not change the installation directory, in the version No Setup Bite extract the folder into the directory 'C: \ Program Files'.

Fist the Emu has not enough rights. Second crash or buffer overflow will cause the HV to panic (freeze)

So ... lets do a quick assessment ... we have psp iso execution on OFW ... could we theoretically run homebrew somehow or crash the pspmini emulator and give us supervisor control ? Seems to me like something like a HEN is possible if we can orchestrate a crash or buffer overflow on OFW system?

Everyone wishing they didn't update past 3.55 shouldn't update until this is further explored. I know not all ISO's work but perhaps we can engineer one.
