Coddec released

Finally we’ve decided to release coddec to public. Well, it is not actual coddec we use “in-house” but a very first working version of it.

Source and binary are provided. Please don’t ask for documentation or how to use it, I think it is very straightforward. There is a little bug which fires exemptions in some cod files – it is easy to fix it so we’ve left it there for you :)

Coddec

Enjoy

    You will find this download mirrored at the Collaborative RCE Tool Library too, in case the RapidShare link has expired when you read this.

    hi drbolsen,

    have you reverse engineering the Javaloader.exe protocol communication (USB communication)?

    please contact me via email,
    where should i contact you?

    thanks

    how do u use this coddec?

  5. pitito says:

    Indeed I would correct the bug if I’d know how to build it:

    ./net/rim/tools/compiler/exec/Comparator.java:7: net.rim.tools.compiler.exec.Comparator is already defined in this compilation unit
    import java.util.Comparator;
    ^
    ./net/rim/tools/compiler/exec/Comparator.java:9: cyclic inheritance involving net.rim.tools.compiler.exec.Comparator
    public interface Comparator
    ^
    ./net/rim/tools/compiler/exec/c.java:18: net.rim.tools.compiler.exec.c is already defined in net.rim.tools.compiler.exec
    static class c
    ^
    Note: Some input files use unchecked or unsafe operations.
    Note: Recompile with -Xlint:unchecked for details.

    Fantastic! It works! Is there a way to turn off the output on the screen? I think it might be slowing coddec down.

  7. dandin1 says:

    When looking at the decompiled headers of public non-static methods, it would seem there’s an added parameter at their begenning, of the same type as the class. For example, BasicEditField.getTextLength() shows up as getTextLength(net.rim.device.api.ui.component.BasicEditField);. Is this a bug or simply the way the VM works internally?

    Also, is there a trick to manually resolving classes that show up as something.class#27?

    I’ve yet to take a look at the code, so my questions will probably sound stupid to me once I do. ;)

  8. Compu_guy says:

    Just wondering if there is something out there to translate the bytecode to standard java language. I have an arithmetic problem that I can’t quite follow in the bytecode.

  10. Dr. {B0lsen} says:

    Cristian,

    That is a normal behavior of the tool – a valid cod file must start with FFFFC0DE tag (-16162). Check your file whether it is a working BB app.

    • sheep says:

      i have some valid cods file worked, but they are not starting with FFFFC0DE(-16162).so what do you think about that?
      BTW,may i have one new coddec you haven’t released it to public?
      i am form China.like to crack berryable apps.
      thank you!

  11. Dr. {B0lsen} says:

    Compu_guy,

    Yes, we have an advanced version of the coddec which can decompile cod files. However we don’t have any plans at the moment to release it to public.

    Cheers

  12. Dr. {B0lsen} says:

    dandin1,

    In the provided example is how JVM “internally” passes a “self” parameter to a method. Hint: check get_name, get_name1 and get_name2 methods to find out how to present a method in a standard, not internal way ;0)

    something.class#27 – hint: check getNonLocalClassDef method in coddec.java. The idea is to use ordinal of class (i.e 27) as an index to find the name of the class.

  14. Prabhu says:

    Hi,

    Got a doubt regarding application permissions. I am signing my application but still it asks the user to save the application permission. Is there any way to by pass it so that our app will work without user manually setting the permissions.

  15. pyrex says:

    what is the point of reversing? If i reversed a theme i made, can i make it more advanced? Using the blackberry ofcourse? I dumped the .cod junk into a .java file, what comes afterwards now?

  16. divus says:

    I would like to say thank you for such an awesome tool!
    However, I do have a question; I used coddec on a .cod file and one of the lines I am trying to understand is this:

    invokevirtual_short net.rim.tools.compiler.codfile.Identifier@0( )

    is that an unknown method being called or am I missing something?

    Thank you in advance for any help you may have to offer!

  18. Dr. {B0lsen} says:

    Check this line:

    at net.rim.tools.compiler.codfile.DataSection._ifaZ(DataSection.java:590

    that is exactly the bug I’ve been talking about. You need to change “if” statement to resolve that then re-build the code again and it should work fine.

    Cheers,

  19. fibrechunks says:

    I’m having two issues with coddec with regards to the codfile.DataSection.getClassRef error

    1) “Version 6″ of CODFile has a new member type that is a subclass of MemberRef, that is 8 bytes long (contains an additional offset to something that appears similar to the _typeListOffset but I don’t know what it is yet)

    2) You said to change the “if” statement and re-build the code. Are you referring to:

    (in getClassRef)
    1652 if(at1 == null)
    1653 throw new IOException(“no class ref found at offset: 0x” + Integer.toHexString(__offset));
    1654 else
    1655 return at1;
    — modify this to return getNullClassRef?

    (or in _ifaZ)
    589 {
    590 net.rim.tools.compiler.codfile.MemberRef j2 = new net.rim.tools.compiler.codfile.MemberRef(__input, this);
    591 __codFileVector.addElement(new net.rim.tools.compiler.codfile.FixupTableEntry(__input, j2, 2, _aliasesFlag, flag1));
    592 }
    — extend the skipBytes logic into this portion of the if-statement.

    It doesn’t seem like adding support for the new 8-bytes MemberRef, or adding byte skipping, would work for my codfile.

    I can see classref offsets in the hex, but they just aren’t where I would expect.

    Any more hints? :-)

    • Paul Calderon says:

      Did you solve this problem, maybe you have the file modified, if you did, can you provide the datasection.java file to compile, or maibe you can send the compiled solved version.

      Thanks

    dr bolsen, excellent work mate!

    after searching the net inside/out for signs of berry movement i was pleased to discover your work. i almost began to think that no one had interest on the subject.

    i’m able to get a valid s/n on numerous berry apps with another method.

  22. Myraddin says:

    Anyone has an idea what this function does?

    public final int verifySlack(int i)
    throws IOException
    {
    int j = i – 1;
    int k = (_offset + j & ~j) – _offset;
    for(int l = 0; l < k; l++)
    if(readByte() != 0)
    throw new IOException(“bad slack byte at offset: 0x” + Integer.toHexString(_offset));

    return k;
    }

    It never reads anything and always returns zero :D
    Could be written as:

    public final int verifySlack(int i)
    {
    return 0;
    }

    Am I right ?

  23. Myraddin says:

    I cannot get it to work.
    It always misses the second MEMBERFIXUP struct :(

    (regarding net.rim.tools.compiler.codfile.DataSection._ifaZ(DataSection.java:590)

    The first struct is read properly but the second one is missed by exactly one byte (proven by using 010 editor with your COD template). I tried to ‘rewind’ backwards by one but it doesn’t work (and will probably break other code).

    Any hints for the if condition you mentioned needing a change?

    “exemptions in some cod files – it is easy to fix it so we’ve left it there for you” && “that is exactly the bug I’ve been talking about. You need to change “if” statement to resolve that then re-build the code again and it should work fine.”

    That is a bit arrogant, isn’t it? It’s very nice tu publish your work for free, it’s even more generous to include the source code for every one to learn and use it, however it isn’t so nice to publish a piece of software with a known bug _and_ without the known fix. It’s a waste of a lot of people’s time. (Add to that that there is no build file or build script, so everyone wanting to use your stuff would have to get acquainted with your code, figure out the fix and create a build file.)

    I have also published some open source stuff on the net and when anyone found a bug or even a biit of incompatibility (think j2me implementations…) then I felt compelled to fix it. Just because by publishing your software you make a promise that it will work and you motivate people to invest time into trying to use it. :(

    I ran across this tool while trying to find a way to export thumbnails from Blackberry COD files for themes. I’ve got your tool working on my Mac, but I’m not seeing the actual images extracted. Is this something broken in my version, is this not part of the software. Could it be added? I’m building a BB theme hosting site, and would like to be able to extract the thumbnail upon file upload.

  48. Aviator168 says:

    I am hoping this tool can help me to figure out the GSM packing format (RIM uses a different one than the standard VoIP packing order) for audio capture as newer CDMA phones DO NOT support audio capture in PCM format and I need the audio to be in PCM for speech processing. Without this information, I won’t be able to decode GSM recordings and that makes my software won’t work with those newer CDMA phones.

  49. roger says:

    haha, i’m betting dr bolsen is already regretting posting this.

    first things first: the flashid mismatch is because you’re trying to decompile a cod equivalent of a jar. try unzipping your cod file with any zip program, you’ll see it works fine. then try decompiling the cod files within the first cod file.

    second: i think he was referring to the if belonging to the else where the error is thrown, around line 590. a bit before that, you need to add a ! before the flag in the if condition i think. that should be all. or you can read above and apply the patch.

    makes me wonder what most of you are going to do once they have the assembly code…

    I tried the regular one and the patch one and nothing is working. Please detail how you would get this working from compiling the patch to running this program

    how to run the coddec.patch ?

    • sam says:

      Hi,

      Just unzip coddec files to a directory.Place the .cod files to in same directory.Open run Ms-Dos batch file in notepad just edit the path u have extracted the codec file.Now open Command Prompt and just cd to directory(where u have extracted).execute batch file.Thats it you can get your java files.

    Some of the most convoluted instructions I’ve come across.

    Why Dr. Bolsen can’t you just make available the patched/working version. It would have saved the economies of our respective countries loads of man days.

    It doesn’t work as it is and I can’t get the patches to be applied!

      Doesn’t appear Dr. Bolsen looks at his website/blog anymore. His last post was just over two years ago.

      I can’t see how anyone could get this to work in its current form.

      I’d be instrested in a comment/repsonse from “Jack Black” and “Sooby Doo”, who aledgedly have decompiled a COD file to Java! I think Dr. Bolsen will turn out to be the “Ghost” in all those Scooby Doo cartoons, trying to frighten away the Java developers!

  58. franc says:

    Where can i find the coddec.patch now? The Link on dontstuffbeansupyournose.com is dead.

  59. Lironhel says:

    First thanks for the amazing job,

    I was able to decompile a simple hello world but this was with one .cod file, is this code handles several .cod files ? what should be done to add support?

    Thanks Liron

  60. Shoaib says:

    Hi,

    I am able to decompile the .cod file but it is showing in Java Bytecode format. Please any one can help me how can I convert into Java Source code.

    Thanks

    Any idea appreciate.
