Ok i just got home from work and was hoping to see some more developement but ohwell.
So you have found out that they messed the tools up on purpose and that there is no way to sign them back? That sucks.
I know that math said it can be done and that its pretty easy if you know what you are doing but he will NOT share his info. It really sucks and i wish he would but i dont think it will happen.
Also after we unself the ps1_emu.self where and how do we look at it to see where and what needs to be changed? Im using evilsperm's linux image with all the tools allready in it and setup.
Im not sure if i am up to date and dont know how to check either. If you can shed some light on this then i will do whatever i can to help get this going. Ive been in all the threads that talked about it trying to get it going and so far this thread seems like the most promising.
Tried make_fself, make_fself_npdrm and tried loading first PL3 payload and then the ps1_emu.self made with those tools. Always the same error. If something must be done by editing ps1_emu.self we're on a dead way until somebody finishes those tools... but there must be a way wtf... easier than we could expect IMO
To tell you the truth i think its because all the ppl bashing him all the time. The dude can be a dick but hey, who here can say they cant either?? I mean he was releasing alot of info on shit and then ppl start running that mouth. The dude contributed way more than ppl give him credit for.
But back ot, ive decrypted the ps1_emu.self and im seeing some calls to libsysutil_game_ps1emu.sprx and libsysutil_sysconf_ps1emu.sprx. Do you think there is anything in there that is used to check whether or not the game is valid?
Im home for the night and aint really got anything planned so long as the wife stops bitching and the kids dont frive me crazy.:p Im gonna keep looking at this stuff and see if those 2 sprx files have anything interesting in them. If they do then i think that i heard that those CAN be encrypted properly but im not sure.
Ok well ive been switching back and forth between the evilsperm virtual box and windows so i said to hell with it, everything im trying to do i need to do in the virtual box so im now doing this from there:p.
But i just tryed to unself the sprx files and they do not decrypt like the selfs do. Does anyone know of a good way to decrypt them so we can take a look at them and see if they hold anything valuable?
Pretty sure mathieulh did get this working and loading from bin files off his hdd so it is possible, might be worth chatting with him and see if he lets anything slip or hints to how its possible, he's not the arsehole people make him out to be :)
Just compile f0f tools with cygwin. No need to VM.
Yea well i cant ever get him to answer me on mirc especially when there are all sorts of them "internetz bullyz" on there that wont stfu.
And yea i know i can do it from windows but for this kind of work its much easier and better on linux imho.
But i just wish we could figure something out. Ive been looking and looking but i dont have the skill of the knowledge to do it by myself. I wont give up though.:D
Ok i made a twitter account just so i could see if i could get him to help us out any. I really dont think he will but i gotta try.
Does anybody else in here no of ANYONE that can shed some light on this subject.
Hey guys. So, after CVortex told me what to ask for graf_chokolo, i sent an email and below is the question by me & graf's answers.
1. The easy way to patch HV so it believes that backups are originals?
Does HV check it ? I didn't see anything about that in HV, but maybe one of HV processes checks it, maybe storage manager, i guess. Do you know which HV service is used for that ?
2. Is there a way to use ps1_netemu to load the ISOs we want?
No clue, it's GameOS app, i'm HV hacker. Send me the list of lv2 syscalls it uses, i will check which of them uses HV services.
3. Will your method to decrypt drm selfs would work on ISO.BIN.EDAT?
What is ISO.BIN.EDAT ?
So, what should i answer? Feel bad i can't reply him with good one :(
