Ipod Games DRM hacked

Recommended Posts

A guy on this site found a way to get rid of the iPod games DRM, I didn't try it myself yet because I'm having some troubles writing the modded firmware. Try it and don't forget to post your results (here and also on the other forum).

Good luck

I've tried this and a few other methods on my 2nd gen nano, but they never showed up in the games menu =\

I would try this, but rapidshare is being {censored} and saying I reached my limit. If anyone has these, can they send them to me?

You could always back up your Apple firmware using one of the utlities on the IpodLinux Project's website. That's what I end up doing before fiddling with anything; easy to restore back to normal.

I confirm it's working, I updated the firmware from windows with ipodwizard and copied the game files at the right place, also disable autosync for games in iTunes to prevent it from removing them. So far I have 3 games working and the rest should come quickly

Interesting, but I'm afraid to mess around with my iPod's firmware. I've done minor hex editing before, but his instructions might as well been in Chinese to me.

 

I'll wait a little while and see what happens.

Here is a step by step guide to put the 4 cracked games onto your iPod on a Mac. This is all other peoples information, I just put it together, the only thing I figured out myself was the firmware update. I couldn't figure out how to update the firmware without restoring the iPod, I'm sure someone here will know how to do it. Proceed at your own risk. It worked great on my 5G iPod.

 

--------

Go into iTunes, open your iPod, go to the games tab, and uncheck the "syncronize games" box. Then click apply.

 

Download the cracked Games from: Do NOT link to illegal/copyrighted files.

Rename the "Games_RO.exe" file to "Games_RO.7z", extract it with a program called "BetterZip"

 

Download the cracked firmware (5G only, not 5.5G) from: Do NOT link to illegal/copyrighted files.

 

To update the iPod with patched firmware:

go to /Applications/Utilities/iPod Software Updater/

right click iPod Updater 2006-03-23

select "Show Package Contents"

go to Contents/Resources/Updates

delete "Firmware-13.6.1.1"

unzip Firmware5GPatchedByBadBlox.zip

move Firmware5GPatchedByBadBlox.bin to Contents/Resources/Updates and rename it to "Firmware-13.6.1.1"

open iPod Updater 2006-03-23 and restore the iPod

 

 

To view the hidden files on your iPod, open terminal and type:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

then:

killall Finder

 

Copy the extracted Games_RO folder to the iPod_Control folder on the ipod.

 

To hide the hidden files, type these commands in terminal:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE

killall Finder

 

Thats it.

The topic has been deleted in the forum I pointed, but if you search a little you'll find another topic about it. ATM 12 games are decrypted and all working perfectly on my 5.5G

    • Cool! Do you have a link? Googled and didn't see anything yet.   Never mind... you're quick! I just noticed you updated it on the 1st page THANKS!!!!!!
    • I resolved the problem. Just set this coding in your config.plist:   "

    • I guess having pre{max-height: 500px;overflow: auto;} in CSS was too much for IPS Devs' tast.  Until an admin has hands on this, you still can use stylish plugin to accomplish it.     In fact, it is pretty easy than it appears - Just apply a simple click on the codebox (it will highlight it), then 'delete' key.
    • all the possible frequencyes i have added seems to work fine at the moment, i have added a lot of different frequencyes to support better all kinds of professional applications, inclunding strange sampling rates and goes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz, unfortunately 192 khz does not seems to work even on cards which should support it like the audigy rx, but other frequencyes just works fine and at the moment i have tested only the sound blaster audigy rx and the audigy sb0090 (1st gen audigy) and i can confirm that all the frequencyes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz does work on that card, so i think that such frequencyes should work on all the audigy 2, 2sz, 4 cards as well, tomorrow i will test with my sound blaster live! cards and i will let you know, but here are also some photos (pro tip: use cmd + alt/opton + 4 and then press space to make a screenshot of a single window):
