    PS3 Hypervisor and Bootloader Dumped

    PS3 Hacker CJPC has managed to dump the PS3 hypervisor and LV1 and Bootloader LV0 via PS3 RAM. He has provided a brief explanation of what he did and a download file to the exploit can be found in the VIA link:
    We are happy to report that the PS3 Hypervisor LV1 and Bootloader LV0 are dumped from the PlayStation 3's RAM after getting our SX28 Hardware a few days ago, utilizing code for glitching and mashing buttons for hours - the exploit eventually will get triggered!

    We tried a few different ways to dump out the real memory - the biggest "problem" was the fact that you can't just simply use File I/O code in a kernel module. Furthermore, you can't call the lv1_peek function from user mode either.

    Luckily, resident DEV kakarotoks was up to the challenge. After some trial and error (and too many PS3 crashes!) he made a kernel module which maps the "real" PS3 memory to a device in /proc. The /proc area lets the kernel and userland interact some.

    Basically, the device /proc/ps3_hv_mem is created when the kernel module is inserted. Once it is inserted, you can use dd to read the device. By doing this, the device gets passed arguments, which is passed along to lv1_peek - which in turns reads out the real memory.

    Be advised, don't go beyond the PS3's upper memory limit. At around 260MB, the PS3 tends to crash - it does not like trying to read beyond RAM limits! So, for usage:

    First, run the exploit, and get it triggered and working - that's the hard part!

    Next, download the attached file, inside are three files, a Makefile, the ps3_hv_mem.c and a pre-compiled version. Stick these in a folder, and run make. It will then compile a kernel module for you (ps3_hv_mem.ko, or use the pre-compiled one). Then simply type: sudo insmod ps3_hv_mem.ko

    Enter your password and check /proc for a ps3_hv_mem entry, or your dmesg. If it is there - let the dumping begin!

    You can dump out the PS3 Hypervisor and Bootloader (and the rest of the real memory) via dd. You can use the command:

    dd if=/proc/ps3_hv_mem of=PS3_Memory_Dump.bin bs=1024 count=10K

    That command will dump out 10485760 bytes, or about 10MB - which nicely includes the goodies like LV0 and LV1. Finally, you can also increase the count, which will increase the amount dumped (multiply by blocksize).

    I like that the PS3 is not hacked but hate that there is not enough access to it to make linux worth having on it. Also not being able to play PS2 games (all regions) and all region PS1 games also sucks. If the system was able to do that then it would be perfect or near perfect. I don't want stuff like a iso loader witch will promote pirating of games. That would make the PS3 like gaming on a PC or PSP. By that it will make the devs not want to make as many games for it cause the games will be pirated to the point it will drive up developing cost. In turn less games will be made for it the same as for the PSP and PC.

    I'd love to play some Zelda! :D

    Honestly, I'd be happy if an Isoloader never comes out.

    Wether anyone likes to hear this or not, one WILL be released because they ALWAYS DO. Piracy is quite a reluctant bastard.
