dumping your games or apps without pfs protection

Post by mr.gas » Sat Jan 23, 2016 2:28 pm

most of the work are going to be in app.db
1- add a value in table tbl_uri like the following
NPXS10000;1;ux0;
2- modify NPXS10000 eboot.bin path in tbl_appinfo to vs0:app/NPXS10027/eboot.bin
3- overwrite the modified app.db using email app and reboot
4- now use the browser to call the new uri with your target game . example :
ux0:app/PCSA00017
apparently near app will open the game manual.
5- minimize near then dump the game using the psp pboot trick using CMA (while the near app still open)
6- end of th story .. and have fun

I thought dumping files from e-mail was blocked in later firmwares?

Nice. So I'm guessing this works because Near is always in the background, so you can have PSP in the background of whatever game is launched (which has the pfs mounted)?

my problem was how open content manager app while the game still mounted .. so i tricked him to run because near app is able to keep it self running all the time in the back ground ..

It was a very smart play by doing so mr gas!
At last the near app turned out to be useful somehow :lol:
Gotta test it now, thanks for sharing this trick!

It's just for us to be able to analyze the files of the games, if I've understood correctly. Vitas won't be able to run these dumps or anything. Not yet anyway.
