News/release from raing3
Here is a simple app which starts dumping data after reading the first 8192 bytes. It dumps exactly 256kb of data. This should be sufficient for dumping most IPLs from the Memory Stick, I know RainMotorSports is apparently working on an app to do it. But I got bored and started learning a little, the program isn't all that great as it doesn't actually dump just the IPL it dumps any other data after it until it reaches 256kb however IPL installer apps should still be able to write this data back without causing problems in most cases. Please don't critisize the quality of the app this was both my first app for the PSP and my first app in C++. If anyone could assist in fixing up the following issues it would be also be greatly appreciated:
- The application doesn't detect the size of the IPL, just dumps 256kb (slightly larger than the original pandora IPL).
- The program does not go directly to the IPL sector, it first reads 8kb of data before it gets to the IPL (this wastes time and looks stupid).
- The rubbish size may have to change when using different file system etc. Not sure but if the size of sectors change it probably will have to change.
