A Libre (FLOSS) Python application for unencrypting, extracting, repackaging, and encrypting PS3 ISOs
LibRay: A portmanteau of Libre and Blu-Ray
LibRay aims to be a Libre (FLOSS) Python application for unencrypting, extracting, repackaging, and encrypting PS3 ISOs.
A hackable, crossplatform, alternative to ISOTools and ISO-Rebuilder.
Note: this is still a very beta project, report any bug you see!
How to install
Note: You will need Python 3, so you might want to use
pip3 instead of
pip depending on your system.
sudo pip install libray
Clone this repository
git clone https://notabug.org/necklace/libray
Install dependencies with
sudo pip install -r requirements.txt
sudo python setup.py install
For Arch or Arch-based GNU/Linux distributions there's an option to install libray from the AUR (Arch User Repository).
You will need an AUR helper (of which there are many).
Then you will need to run the appropriate install command for that AUR helper using
libray as package name.
This will essentially automatically do the manual method for you.
libray is now installed to your path.
How do I use it?
usage: libray [-h] -i ISO [-o OUTPUT] [-k IRD] [-d DECRYPTION_KEY] [-v] [-q] [-r] A Libre (FLOSS) Python application for unencrypting, extracting, repackaging, and encrypting PS3 ISOs required arguments: -i ISO, --iso ISO Path to .iso file or stream optional arguments: -o OUTPUT, --output OUTPUT Output filename -k IRD, --ird IRD Path to .ird file -d DECRYPTION_KEY, --decryption-key DECRYPTION_KEY Manually specify key -v, --verbose Increase verbosity -q, --quiet Quiet mode, only prints on error -r, --re-encrypt Re-encrypt .iso
First off, even before you install libray, you will need a compatible Blu-Ray drive that can read PS3 discs.
On some systems (eg. Linux), you can decrypt directly from the disc:
libray -i /dev/sr0 -o ps3_game_decrypted.iso
Libray is bundled with redump keys and will automatically try to decrypt the .iso if it finds a compatible key. If not, it will try to download an IRD decryption file for your iso. If you don't have internet connection, but you do have an .ird file you can specify that:
libray -i /dev/sr0 -k game_ird_file.ird -o ps3_game_decrypted.iso
Alternatively, you can first rip the disc to an ISO file and then decrypt from the ISO file:
libray -i ps3_game.iso -o ps3_game_decrypted.iso
If libray is unable to download an .ird for your game, you could manually give it the key, if you have it:
libray -i ps3_game.iso -d DECRYPTION_KEY -o ps3_game_decrypted.iso
2. Extract decrypted ISO
Then, if you want to feed it into RPCS3 just extract the contents of the .ISO:
7z x nfs_ps3_decrypted.iso
And move the resulting folders into a folder named after the game ID into the appropriate folder for RPCS3:
- Linux: /home/username/.config/rpcs3/dev_hdd0/disc/BLUS0000

Help! I get
ImportError: No module named Crypto.Cipher
ImportError: cannot import name 'byte_string' from 'Crypto.Util.py3compat' (/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/Crypto/Util/py3compat.py)
This is due to multiple similarly named python crypto packages, one way to fix it is:
sudo pip uninstall crypto sudo pip uninstall pycrypto sudo pip install pycryptodome
If you get any other errors, or have any other problem with libray, please create an issue!
clp = compressed length prefix
python -m unittest discover
pip3 install wheel twine
- Place redump keys in tools/keys and .dat in tools/
- Run keys2db.py, ensure it made a file in libray/data/keys.db
python3 setup.py sdist bdist_wheel
twine upload dist/*
- Extract ISO (currently doable with
7z x output.iso)
- Repackage (unextract) iso
- Test .irds with version < 9
- Custom command to backup all irds available
- Unit tests
- Download .irds from vimm.net?
