EDIT: Make sure you get V3, I introduced a bug with a last minute change. Sorry.
The attached rar contains 2 batch files, replace.bat and ReencryptUpdate.bat. It will reencrypt 3.6 game updates to 3.4 updates so that they are usable on 3.55CFW.
I have tested it fair bit but obviously use at you own risk.
It relies on the following tools
scetool.exe 0.2.8: get it form their website or elsewhere (must have the latest 3.6 keys file, 0.2.7 may work)
PARAM_SFO_Editor and Pkgview:
These 2 can be found as part of the multiMan Base package.
Go look at the multiMan thread and you will find it.
can be foud in Deank's EBOOT Fix Tool 0.5 (first post in this thread)
You need to have the following directory structure:
To use it the pkg file MUST be in this same folder (sorry will fix this when I get a chance)
You can then just drag and drop the .pkg file onto the ReencryptUpdate.bat
It should then unpack it, modify the PARAM.SFO file, re-encrypt the EBOOT.BIN and repackage it back up.
It will add the a "-original" to the end of the original pkg file and a "-3.1" to the end of the patch pkg file.
The resulting pkg will not work if the original update contains any self files. I am look into fixing this, but at the moment the only one I have find is Portal 2 and the scetool can not read the headers of some of the self files. So little point me look furthur at the moment.
Any questions ask, and good luck.
oakhead69 I have tried looking in the multiman thread for the param editor and oakhead69 but I can't seem to find them.
Coolness thanks! Now I just gotta find the pkgview and I'll be set :D
It should be in that download.
WRC 2 FIA World Rally Championship 2011_BLES01442 n Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion XL_BLUS30834 via ReencryptUpdate
1) What firmware are you running?
2) How do they fail? (Black screen, error code if so what code, other)
3) Are these the only 2 games you have tried?
4) Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion XL (BLUS30834) is a 3.6 game. Does the game run when you patch the normal game EBOOT.BIN? i.e. without the update.
5) I do not have the game Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion XL (BLUS30834) does it have any self or sprx file in the game or the update?
I will check out the WRC 2 FIA World Rally Championship 2011 (BLES01442) this evening.
One thing you could try is changing the update to a 3.55 from a 3.4 could be worth a shot.
To do so change the following 2 line in the batch file
call ..\..\replace 03.6000 03.4000 PARAM.TMP >> PARAM.SFX
call ..\..\replace 03.6000 03.5500 PARAM.TMP >> PARAM.SFX
and in the call to scetool change the parameter
Thanks for the feedback.
EDIT: Tested WRC 2 works fine for me on TB firmware.
At first you get a white screen for quite a while then
you get a white dolby digital screen then others that can not remember etc etc.
EDIT 2: Also tested Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion XL it also works. Another boring sideways scrolling button basher. Nice graphics though.
Oakhead what do we do if the file does have .self files in them?
Once it does I will maybe update my batch file to handle the self/sprx as well.
Alternative is do the whole process manually as I was doing before I wrote this script file.
Meanwhile, I am working on a couple of fixes to my script.
1) Renaming of the pkg file not always working correctly. (FIXED but not updated, not a major problem)
2) If the original EBOOT.BIN is compressed, then compress the re-encrypted one. (Working on this) DOS Batch files suck, Perl or Python is so much better.
