• That is it guys!! almost full control of the Ps3 now! Hacker Extraordinaire Graf_Chokolo announced minutes ago that he successfully exploited the hypervisor through gameOS here is what he had to say on the matter:

    —Quote—
    I have just exploited and dumped HV 3.15 from GameOS :-)

    I used memory glitching like Geohot to get dangling HTAB entry but 2nd and 3rd stages are quite different. I used my knowledge about HV internals and created a simpler exploit for stage2 and stage3.

    I didn’t use second VAS like Geohot. I used lv1_undocumented_function_114 and lv1_undocumented_function_115 to exploit HV after i got a dangling HTAB entry :-)

    I will make everything public very soon and i plan to dump HV 3.41 in the next days :-)

    Happy new year guys
    —End Quote—
    we are still yet to know if any hardware is required i have already asked him this, but i think it is not!

      just be warned that the first person to ask about gran turismo or need for speed game, or any unplayable on 3.41 for that matter will have a beautiful warning! so please stay on topic.

      unbelievable! $ony = Haxored and its about time they were wiped of their smugness. Everyone who added to this completion (even GeoHotz) of this project is just wonderful to true video gamers who don't want to be limited by the communistic-like corporations.

      Not sure this will result in a jailbreak for 3.5

      Graf_Chokolo you are an insperation
      Do you have a paypal account to donate to because I refuse buy anything homebrew related, however I am pleased to donate to someone like yourself who delivers with expecting or demanding anything.
      Keep up the good work

      that mean we r not gonna need to jailbreak the system every time turn it on
      it means too that we may dosent need to connect the dongle into the usb anymore

      I am not sure what all this means. Will it help make AsbestOs work without RSX restrictions and without the need for a network shared drive? Does our existing homebrew still get restricted by the hypervisoer in game OS? Well I can only hope this leads to great things. Also very, very glad it's not another "dongle exclusive". The companies that are holding onto advancements in exchange for sales should be ashamed and boycotted!

      Sorry to be a kill joy, but can we calm down and wait for something to be confirmed?

      After all, we have had reports in the past which were fake.

      That being said, I hope it's true, Sony deserve everything they get and I hope at the very least we end up like the 360 JTAG scene where (as long as they don't upgrade officially) they are always hacked and have a decent stream of homebrew.

      Unlike the ps3 scene which (I fear) may slowly die as people want newer games.

      Did he find the master key or the usb key?
      Everybody says its the master key that he found but everything i read says its kakaroto's usb key that was in the hv dump.
      Any precision/source appreciated.

      You guys really seem to misunderstand this "master key" bit. It is of no use to end users. Furthermore, it is a "dongle master key", not a system key.

      There are already two threads in this section about this, and they are already using it. All that it does is generate new "device IDs" for dongles.

      All this means is that unless Sony changes the entire keyset, they can keep making new dongles capable of passing the system challenge/response phase to enter service mode even if Sony revokes the device ID in use now on newer firmwares. However, it does not mean they can actually use service mode on newer firmwares, the files people use for that are revoked in newer firmwares. This definitely does not mean custom firmware or anything like that. This in particular has nothing to do with that.

      In short, right now it does nothing new, and without other files, it won't. Furhtermore, this will never lead to custom firmware developments or anything of that nature.

      The hypervisor work is seperate and another story.

      thank god someone with a little sense in this thread, thanks for clearing this for people that apparently are going crazy with usb master key! and going off topic with the usb master key! this thread is far more important than the usb master key, people just doesn't seem to understand that.

      He says he's using the Geohotz memoryglitch, so for that there is a hardware alteration needed.

      I wonder if the 3.55 downgrade prevention is based on a patch or simply a revoke of the AAAA id -- now that you can create a new dongle id -- it would be interesting to see if 3.55 can be downgraded using the new id's or if they used something like an efuse to prevent it.

      its not the id that stops us from downgrading. as we can still use it to get in to service mode and out off service mode , its the files they that we used eg mod 3.41 and the other file to downgrade

      yeah i read that too, but his description led me to believe that he found an exploit on lv2,but that exploit was software related, that allowed him to use the rest of the process that geohot used. i might be wrong though he didn't answer it on psx-scene.
