epk2extract is a tool that can extract, decrypt, convert multiple file formats that can be found in LG TV sets and similar devices.
NOTE: To unpack epk v2 and v3 you need proper AES and RSA keys for decryption. To get them you will need to dump them from a running TV.
NOTE: To decrypt PVR recordings you need a dump of the unique AES-128 key from your TV
|epk v1||First version of epk format, not encrypted and not signed|
|epk v2||Introduces signing and encryption, keys needed|
|epk v3||Introduced with WebOS. Keys needed|
|Mediatek pkg||UPG/PKG files used by Hisense/Sharp/Philips (missing Philips AES key) and possibly others|
|Philips "fusion"||Upgrade files used by some Philips TVs|
|lz4||Slightly modified version with header magic|
|lzhs||Special compression for MTK bootloaders (boot.pak, tzfw.pak), uses lzss + huffman|
|lzhs_fs||LZHS compressed filesystem used in MTK Upgrade files for the external writable partition (3rdw)|
|mtdinfo/partinfo||LG Partition table format (mtdi.pak, part.pak)|
|str/pif||PVR recording format that can be found in netcast models|
|sym||LG Debugging symbols. Can extract function names and addresses to an IDA script file (idc)|
Although epk2extract is only tested on LG firmware files, you may use it to extract other files like a general unpack tool, as long as they are supported according to the table above.
epk2extract isn't designed to repack files
If you wish to repack modified files, follow the openlgtv wiki/forum, and do it in a Linux environment (no cygwin)
Don't repack files extracted in cygwin environment
In any case, you do so at your own risk

|lzhsenc||Compresses a given file with lzhs algorithm|
|lzhs_scanner||Scans a given file to find lzhs files, and extracts them|
|idb_extract||Extracts Image Database (IDB) files that can be found in LG firmwares|
|jffs2extract||Extracts JFFS2 images. Supports various compression algorithms|
apt-get install git build-essential cmake liblzo2-dev libssl-dev libc6-dev
urpmi git task-c++-devel cmake liblzo-devel libopenssl-devel glibc-devel --auto
After building, epk2extract can be found in ./build_<platform>/
Devel -> gcc-g++, git, cmake, make Libs -> liblzo2-devel, zlib-devel Net -> openssl-devel Utils -> ncurses
The build script automatically copies required shared libraries to the ./build_cygwin/ folder, so you can use epk2extract standalone/portable without a full cygwin installation.
You can build the test build, which contains compiler optimizations, with this command
The Test build is orders of magnitude faster than the Debug build
Put *.pem and AES.key files in the same directory as the epk2extract binary.
Run it via sudo/fakeroot to avoid warnings (while extracting device nodes from rootfs):
fakeroot ./epk2extract file
Or use partinfo.py (deprected)
python partinfo.py part.pak
