• Homebrew, PS3 Hacks , 26.03.2011

    Busy day at the PS3 scene this weekend. PSX-Scene member known as “user” has release a tool that allows hypervisor debugging from GameOS.

    Features:

    • Enable debug for some HV services
    • -Patch Dispatch Manager policies (allow everything )

    To quote author:

    it can enable debugging for various HV services (Storage Manager, SYSCON, etc.), but you need to trigger these services yourself.
    you could for example enable Storage Manager debug, exit the app, insert a game, boot into linux and dump your ram.
    search your dump using grep or whatever you like for “HW:”.

    excerpt from the above example:

    1864931:HW:inquiry:SONY    PS-SYSTEM   302R4151                   :4151

      The bootloader cannot be updated, as such the bootloader keys that decrypt lv0 cannot be changed on existing consoles, thus they remain the same since 1.00

      The metldr keys arenít the keys that sign metldr, they are the keys that are stored within metldrís binary.

      In fact metldr and the bootloader arenít selfs, as such they are signed and encrypted with different algorithms than the rest of the ps3 binaries.

      I see a lot of nonesense regarding lv0 so let me clarify a few things for you:

      1. lv0 isnít a loader itís a ppu binary

      2. Lv0 isnít encrypted per console and can be updated with the rest of the coreos

      3. Lv0 is decrypted by the bootloader, there is no such thing as a lv0ldr.

      4. The bootloader keys cannot be updated/modified on EXISTING hardware

      5. lv0.2 is NOT a binary, itís a new metadata for lv0 which is to be decrypted and verified by a new bootloader (which is to be available on future ps3s), it is NOT used by the current bootloader (and thus in current playstation 3 consoles)

      General rule applies... if you have to ask what it's for, it isn't for you.

      Some top comments here, definitely anything technical posted on the front page needs to have comments blocked. It just becomes a noob frenzy of "can i used this to play online" or the classic just posted :P

      Probably no time soon. We have a long ways to go to get a custom firmware on 3.60. If you want to play online with your friends then update and stop b*******. Sony will more than likely ban you anyways even if there ever is a 3.60 CFW.

      Time to start banning the idiots, these posts are painful to read with all of the irrelevant crap. Mods, seriously.
