PS3 NPDRM Re-Enable Tool Released

Based off of gitbrew’s 215d8903bc86539ca1da53519e2ac10eeafc4c27 ps3tools. .git folder not included to protect senstive info about the author.


Add the files in the npdrm_keystuff folder to your ps3 keys folder.
Create a file with your console’s 16 byte IDPS in the ‘idps’ file in your ps3 keys folder (e.g. ~/.ps3/idps).
Copy your PS3′s exdata folder containing your act.dat and rif files to your ps3 keys dir (e.g. ~/.ps3/exdata/act.dat).
Compile and have fun with your LEGALLY purchased NPDRM games!
Also works on free games without exdata/idps.

Apologies for any existing bugs in unself. Adding these changes to unself2 is left as an exercise for the reader.
