    PS3 HDD Decryption Tut revised

    Post  Dm430 on Tue Jun 29, 2010 11:13 am

    Hey Guys its Dm430 here agin with a tut on decrypting the ps3's HDD.


    Ok always use the formula below becuase this will give you the right hex..!!!

    ok so i spent like 4 hours just looking for pattrens in the bin file and relised that there are bout 100 difrent repeats not fun now doing some math i figured out that you devide 2147483648 by 512 and you will get 4,194,304 repeats have fun

    the video is up just click its thumb nail to play

    Ok this was really my bad but when you go to decrypt and the dummy file is not big enogh its becuase you havent found the dummy file.. or you have not restored the MasterImage+Dummy_To_Decrypt_xxx.bin to the hdd thanks to donny_boy1189 for pointing that out

    What You Need

    * PS3
    * one hdd Two recomended
    * ps3 hdd studio 2.8
    * external encloser/docking hub
    * Winhex

    OK so now that you have all these thigns im going to warn you its not easy but its not hard. those tuts you see all over are just pure crap i mean they dont even know what there talking about the just copy and past out of the read me well i will too becuase im lazy but im going to clarafie some things and also supply a video tut.

    • 00 The Hdd (use Prepare Hdd section), it's better you use a little hdd to do such operations. Warning, your HDD will be FORMATTED! be CAREFULL to chose the right one!

    • Unplug the ethernet connection to avoid receiving network messages if you have the automatic login option enabled.

    • Plug the hdd and turn on the console.

    • Format the Hdd as requested.

    • After the reboot Login with a user (if you have more than one) and always use selected one.

    • Disable the Information Board.

    • Turn Off the console normally

    • Unplug the Hdd and create a merged Image (#FIND & MERGE# section) naming it: MasterImage_To_Encrypt_xxx.bin
    (where xxx is the console FW version).
    Ok this is pretty self exclaitory format the hdd and plug it in to the pc then use the merg tab and creat a file called MasterImage_To_Encrypt_xxx

    ================================================== =

    • Create a Dummy file, just leave the default size ad it is (214748364, browse to your pendrive and click "Create Dummy File".

    • Copy the dummy from the pendrive to the PS3 HDD (in Music section) and create a merged Image (#FIND & MERGE# section) naming it:
    MasterImage+Dummy_To_Decrypt_xxx.bin (where xxx is the console FW version).

    This is pretty obvous too but gen the dummy99.mp3 to usb drive (in fat32 format) then copy the dummy file to the ps3's music section storing it on the ps3's hdd. then unplug the hdd and make a new merged image named MasterImage+Dummy_To_Decrypt_xxx

    • Open MasterImage+Dummy_To_Decrypt_xxx.bin file in winhex and seek for a dymmy sector: it's easy to understand where dymmy starts,
    all the dummy sectors are equals (1 sector = 512 bytes), you just have to seek the whole hdd scrolling it down until you see a repetitive pattern different from the initial one (a fast method is to go at the middle of the .bin file, there should be the dummy).

    Note: Set Winhex this way: VIEW > RECORD PRESENTATION
    : put the 'v' in all 3 checkmarks, then fill these values:

    "First Record at offset": 0
    "Record size in bytes": 512

    Remember to select a good background color in winhex options (Options > General) or you won't notice where a sector starts! This way each sector will be displayed in an alternate color.

    • Create a Dummy Data Partlogs using #FIND & MERGE# chosing option "Find all HDD sectors starting with these 16 bytes".
    You'll obtain a partlog dummy data, keep it cause it will be needed lot of times.

    ok once you have the MasterImage+Dummy_To_Decrypt_xxx.bin open it in win hex there should be a sector that has all the same at the top ignore this look for a large repitive pattern toward the middle or the bottom it depens on drive size.


    • 00 an Hdd (use Prepare Hdd section) different than the one that you use to encrypt/decrypt (so a second one that could be big).

    • Format it with ps3 and download the PSN data you want to decrypt (or install a game data package or whatever you want to see decrypted).

    • Attach it to PC, go to Find&Merge and use the option "Find al HDD sectors containing dtata different from 0x00" you will obtain a partlog-DataToBeDecrypted.txt and a partlog-DataToBeDecrypted.bin, the last one is the data do be decrypted, already merged.

    • Restore the MasterImage+Dummy_To_Decrypt_xxx.bin to an hdd that you will use only to encrypt/decrypt. to restore see the #RESTORE A MERGED IMAGE# Label below.

    • In Decrypt Step 1 select the PS3 Hdd where you have just restored MasterImage+Dummy_To_Decrypt_xxx.bin. select the merged file obtained from the operation above (partlog-DataToBeDecrypted.bin) select the Dummy Data partlog obtained in #PREPARE HDD# section. Push Do process, the data will be copied in the hdd in place of the Dummy file.

    • Now attach the Hdd that you just patched into PS3, copy the dymmy file from hdd to a Pendrive.

    • Now attach the pendrive to the PC and select: "Decrypt Step 2":
    browse to the Pendrive Dummy99.mp3. select the same merged file you selected in the step above. chose an output file, it's the decrypted result. select the Dummy Data partlog obtained in #PREPARE HDD# section. Push Do process, you will obtain a merged decrypted file.

    ok so now you format the ps3's hdd, then download the patch or files to be decrypted hook it up to the pc and make a new merged image called partlog-DataToBeDecrypted. then you restore the master image with the dummy becuase the dummy gets replaced with the partlog-DataToBeDecrypted. then just follow the im lazy
