90w ago - Following up on the RAP2RIF and RIF2RAP PS3 homebrew utilities, today the Italian PlayStation 3 developers at BiteYourConsole have made available Rap2Rif & Rif2Rap v1.02 followed by some similar apps from eminem451 with the changes outlined below.

Download: Rap2Rif & Rif2Rap v1.02 / R2R.zip (Mirror) / R2R+edat v1.0.1 / R2R+etat_v1.0.1.zip / R2R+edat / R2R+etat.zip / frwl.zip by zecoxao / rif2rap.exe / rif2rap_x64.exe by eminem451

To quote, roughly translated: Here comes a new update to the utility windows Rap2Rif & Rif2Rap that brings us to version 1.2 solving several bugs found in Windows XP. You may recall that the utility is used to convert the file has Rap file in Ref and vice versa.

Changelog:

  • Fixed several bugs on Windows XP.
  • Added Content_ID2edat by type C00 demo.
  • Addition scan the directories.
  • Enter the file act.dat & IDPs in the DATA folder and launch the utility rap2rif & rif2rap to fix this symbol c00 enter a demo. PARAM.SFO pkg file or a file to be generated. edat.

From pink1: Here is a tool I put together. It's pretty much rap2rif, rif2rap and an edat fix tool for C00 type demos. Put your act.dat & idps in the data folder and you're ready for rap2rif & rif2rap. To fix C00 type demos input a .pkg from a C00 demo or the PARAM.SFO and it will output the fixed .edat.

Update: This (R2R+edat v1.0.1) is a small update to R2R+edat, it fixes edats being a byte short & should speed up pkg2edat a lot by only decrypting the first 5MB instead of the whole pkg. Put your act.dat & idps in the data folder and you're ready for rap2rif & rif2rap.

To fix C00 type demos input a .pkg from a C00 demo or the PARAM.SFO and it will output the fixed .edat.

Update #2: This (R2R v1.02) is an update to R2R+edat v1.0.1. I've fixed some bugs on XP added Content_ID2edat for type C00 demos and added directory scanning plus a lot of little fixes I don't remember. Put your act.dat & idps in the data folder and you're ready for rap2rif & rif2rap.

To fix C00 type demos input a .pkg from a C00 demo or the PARAM.SFO and it will output the fixed .edat. A huge thanks to catalinnc for testing & letting me know about the problems on XP.

Update #3: zecoxao has also released an ACT.DAT and RIF generator stating the following, to quote:

Download: frwl.zip

Hint: try to figure out what those initials mean

Update #3: From eminem451: Hi, here is my own rif2rap app, use it to generate raps files from rif, i know it already exists, but my app can handle directory directly, saving time.

I hope this will help people for generating raps (psndl for example). Don't hesitate to zip your raps and share it.

Did any one get any success on installing the dlc? I got all the chrome line cars, but these packs won't work.

I am having the same issue. Been trying all sorts of things and nothing seems to be working. Currently I am using update 2.11 because I have no intentions of going online. Have you had any luck?

Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developer NiceShot released Simple RIF Purchase Date v1.0 with details below.

Download: Simple Rif Purchase Date (build 1).rar

To quote: Simple Rif Purchase Date

Author: NiceShot!

11/8/2013

Initial Release: Build 1

This first version will only tell you the purchase date of the PSN game by loading the rif file, very simple.

Credits: This software is dedicated to Ada who gave me the initial idea.

Big thanks go to Swizzy who really helped me develop it (you've been a great friend, I will never forget you) Also would like to thank TeaM_X_TudO, TeaM_AC1D and PS3Hax.

Special Thanks to: Sileandro, X6465, Sandungas, Zecoxao, Harryoke, Xvistaman, eussNL.

My wife and daughter too hehehe. Stay tuned more releases to come.

Also below are some VSH Patches RIF Bypass by Joonie with details as follows:

Download: vsh_patches_RIF_bypass.rar

aldostools and sandungas recently asked me if I could do some reversing of MLT's rif bypass patches. If you are not familiar with this, you can check this article as a reference: http://www.ps4news.com/ps3-cfw-mfw/ps3-4-40-cfw-by-miralatijera-with-reactpsn-rif-license-bypass-out/

The original source is EOL (elotrolado.net/hilo_update4-cfw-4-40-miralatijera-system-manager-1-1-core-3-2-0-integrado-qaflag_1880798)

So I gave a shot, and there was positive result, basically I tried porting MLT's 4.40 VSH patched to REBUG's 4.41 vsh, so far only tested on retail VSH. [4.41.3 REX]

If any of you interested in this research, would you guys like to give me some help? I heard the report saying his rif bypass has some bugs and that was why he stopped porting to 4.5x+. PS2Classic can be bypassed also according to his note, but patching in ps2netemu required.

I remember his teaser video of PS2 ISO loader, I think he was able to do it also. I'm going to upload my sample files including original MLT's 4.40. I'll also ask habib about this research, he may improve some asm codes of this patches.

If you want to try this on REBUG 4.41.3 you need to do following:

1. Install REBUG 4.41.3 REX Edition (don't do it via Recovery, this has the same bug as REX 4.53.1 , it fails to install at 52%)
2. Launch toolbox
3. replace vsh.self.cexsp located in dev_rebug/vsh/module/vsh.self.cexsp, with vsh_rbg_441.self from the package.
4. Activate REBUG mode, and then change XMB menu type to "Retail"
5. Close Toolbox (it will reboot)
6. Then try some PSN contents (old PSN games, PS1 Classics and etc)

I tried one c00 demo type game, it worked as unlocked (Tmnt series) and tried another one Street Fighter HD, it gave me error 80010009.

I'm going to try porting this to 4.65.2 REX, see if that works. Probably a lot harder than porting it from 4.40 to 4.41, because its asm code should have a lot of changes (mostly bl). I also included TXT file that has all that hex patterns of those patches. It was quite a lot. Anyways, I think this is good founding
