Finally, in related PS3 scene news Magnonymous shared an application for decrypting app load3r k3ys, to quote:
- version for 4.21 tested
- versions for 4.80 and 4.81 untested
Download: dekryptsk3ys.zip (79 KB)
An app to extract and dekrypt k3y table from app load3r. I always used k3y file distributed with aldostools, but I didn't see it around any more.. dekryptsk3ys app.e1f version.
Version input manually enables trying old k3ys on newest 7irmware release. Example 481 k3ys work for dekrypting 482.
In case they change the table prologue, this also accepts as input k3y table extracted manually instead of full e1f.
