Similarly to retrieve_input_file_md5, I was looking for a way to dump a patched input file.

Basically, I would like to do the following:

  • patch the file in IDA
  • dump the patched input file to another file
  • try the resulting file in an emulator (it's a PSX BIOS)

Is this possible from within IDA ?

You can modify the code in IDA. IDA saves internally the original as well as the patched content.

Make your modifications using the sub menu commands of Edit -> Patch program

If your modifications are completed you can apply the modifications on an external file. To do so use menu Edit -> Patch program -> Apply patches to input file. It allows you to select an external file and apply the changes you have made to it.
