    PS3 Hypervisor and Bootstrap lv0/1 Examined by Demonhades

    Demonhades has posted today progress/findings of the PS3 hypervisor and boostrap (lvl0/level1).



    To quote:
    For those who bear on our community and this study shall know the hypervisor and bootstrap, but for new and newcomers who want to know about the safety features on ps3, and is protected as it manages the hypervisor (hardware manager) believe that interesting reading this list.

    Then I leave it here hypervisor dump that I have gone and published it to all make a good background paper on the hypervisor and the bootstrap

    Here you will be added all the features you get in a list, if you see that are already discussed here, and exposed them to not only need to copy them from your valleys and fast
    You can view the full (rough English translation) examination at the discuss in forums link, or the more organized version at the VIA link (in Spanish).

    Using existing exploits, would it be possible to install a homebrew firmware, or do we still need to find some way to bypass a bootloader signature check?

    To the best of my understanding, we need to:
    Step 1) Find a way to use the geohot hack to modify the firmware of a vulnerable PS3 to allow the running of unsigned code, so that the geohot hack doesn't have to be used every time you reboot.
    Step 2) Find some way to get the step 1 exploit to work without the geohot hack (for people with slims or people unwilling to mess with their hardware)

    [ Possible Step 0) Use reverse engineering to find a flaw that lets you get game level access on an unmodified console to enable homebrew without step 1 and 2. ]

    It's my current understanding that step 1 has not yet been achieved. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Very interesting but still nothing we didn't know about already :-/

    Things are slowing down. It looks like metldr (also known as asecure_loader) can only be loaded using the memory hack. So people who are trying to load it without the hack won't be able to. The system pukes a "load failed" with RC=1 at you. It appears metldr needs to be loaded using the channels / registers (all credit goes to Skywalker of Hitmen and GeoHot for confirming this).

    There must a special kind of state inside the registers to enable the SPU to go into iso mode with metldr.

    I'm looking into some of the "inbetween" channels of the SPU LS which are communicating trough DMA with the System Memory (XDR).

    For people who are not begging for ISO loaders: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/po...y/pa-celldmas/
