Struggling with the offset patch engines on masm32


Recommended Posts

r0ger

hi guys , i was patching an app called Macrorit disk partiton expert. Then i wanted to test the patcher by using the patch engine coded by Jowy, inserted patch offsets and the patterns, got the CRC32 number from dup2, and when i tried to patch, my patcher got same crc32 error even though it was the correct one :

.data

MSGTitle	db	"PERYFERiAH`z generic patch",0

PatchAborted db "aborted.",0

CRCFailed	db	"sorry, wrong version or already cracked.",13
		db	"patch aborted .",0

		db	"make sure the app has the correct version",13,13
		db	"patch aborted .",0

                             ;

then i've tried the one that Xylitol coded and yes, it says that "bazinga, succesfully patched" but when i opened up the app it still says "Server Edition (Unregistered)" on the splash screen , this one is from the patch tempate , i wanted to test that one too:

then i patched Advanced find and replace 7.8.1 too , and same errors i get... any suggestions ?

You posted this one very recently.

Please be a bit more patient ;)
Reversing requires [a looooooooooot of] patience.

 

First question.

What do you mean with

Quote

my patcher got same crc32 error

?

Do you mean the patcher gives you '

sorry, wrong version or already cracked.

?

You have:

invoke GetFileSize,hFile,0	; gets the size of the file
cmp eax,FileSize
jnz _wrong_size	; if its size is different than the app then it'll jump to this subprogram.
cmp eax,FileCRC
jnz _wrong_crc	; if its CRC32 string is different than the app then it'll jump to this subprogram.

Why should file size match FileCRC?
You missed the actual code that computes the CRC ... :)

Second question

Quote

when i opened up the app it still says "Server Edition (Unregistered)

Try to debug the application and see if your patches are actually applied, or the application might be able to detect your changes.
Did you try to apply the patches with an hex editor and see if the app acts the same?

Tony

...
patch RAWOffset1,Byterepl1,2 
patch RAWOffset2,Byterepl2,2

 

You have defined 3 patches, all of them 1 byte in size. But you apply only 2 patches, each 2 bytes in size.

Makes no sense. ;)

yeah, now i actually applied 3 patches in every one byte in size , and still didn't patch the app...

yes that one...

btw now i will post a crack template with a new effect i've found.
