Principal possibility to "Emulate" PSP Games/.pbp!
sorry im a noob,
take the eboot.pbp from psp, encrypt it, then make an iso.bin.edat and minis.edat?
how do you make the iso.bin.edat and minis.edat
and what about the other files, or are those just like icons, pictures, not important to the functioning of the game?
No, the problem is how to create a iso.bin.edat and a minis.edat because the .edat's are ( I think ) the "protection" for the Minis.
( read this http://www.fileinfo.com/extension/edat ) and no one ( of us, I think ) know how to make this files for an eboot.pbp.
And yes, the other files ( .png's etc. ) aren't important.
Where could I find a PSP Mini game at? I have a few ideas that i'd like to try out to get it working. Any PKGs or would I have to use my PSP and transfer?
okay. First -> A PSP Mini you must download with your PSP from the PS Store.
If you want to download a PS3 Mini ( not real a PS3 Mini, this is just a PSP Mini which will be emulated by the ps3) you have to download it from the PS Store on the ps3, if downloaded on PS3 then it is an .pkg file
When you have installed the MINI on your PS3 you must search ( with OpenFTP for example ) a NPEZ...... Folder ( for European MINIS ), don't know the position on the HDD0 but I think it's HDD0/game ....
So, I suppose a few things need to happen. We need to see if hex editing (or other tests if you will) will break the edat encryption (which is more than likely) and see if the eboot.pbp signature is the same as what it is on a PSP. I suppose an easy way would just be to transfer it to a PSP and try to natively boot. Wonder if I can find a PKG of a PSP mini.
What You describe it's completly useless... I belive everyone saw what is inside these PKGs, PSARs etc. but still no one beated NPDRM (or I should say: everyone who achieve this don't want say how to do it...). Everyone who do this and i ask have the same faces like totems from Rapa Nui... No offence. ;]
BTW: In fact that PS3 emulate Minis doesn't mean she can handle "big games".
Mh, I can open the edat's with an hex editor, but I haven't the time to search for the signature...
But if someone want
I think the first step will be comparing.
Comparing what's the same in the .edat's
2. Step is how to edit a edat for a other EBOOT.PBP ( tested -> if you take the arctis mini in the Angry Birds folder and delete the angry birds eboot -> doesn't work, blackscreen)
When Step 2. doesn't work we have to find a way to create the edat's xD
The most, I know, want to play there .ISO'S ( big games, what ever ) on the ps3. But this isn't what I want. I want to play PSP Homebrews on PS3.
Lamecraft on PS3 for example. I think this will be great!
