HEY GUYS! As promised, here it is.
1. Matches ofw structure
2. Same size as ofw
3. Same metadata used for encrypting modules from which ecdsa checks removed (lv0's isoldr and spu_pkg_rvk_verifier)
4. Disabled 2 ecdsa checks to allow installation of cfw over (tested with my 4.55 but any should work if syscon set to 4.55)
This db ofw is EVEN MORE STEALTHED!!! So its probably the highest approach what people can get!
Finally, from igor242 (via pastie.org/pastes/8725257/text?key=acdq2ikbfxojycv2rje8a): The syscall hash check is only 1 of many sony is capable of doing. I have decided to preemptivly post just a part of relevent logs:
And a little bit more:
[01:00:40] <@eussNL_> as any string can be parsed signed to the NP server
[01:00:52] <@eussNL_> including the things they patch
[01:00:58] <@eussNL_> it means it is not stealthy
04[01:01:03] <04@igor242> kthx
[01:01:16] <@eussNL_> and as they are not patching that
[01:01:24] <@eussNL_> it means it is unstealthy by design
[01:01:45] <@eussNL_> or just as safe as a NSA aproved edition
[01:02:47] <@eussNL_> the whole "same size" mention makes also clear they have not a clue what Sony might even look for
[01:02:59] <@eussNL_> as it is obvious that they won't check only for size
[01:03:40] <@eussNL_> no one with the chromosome count between a giraffe and a sperm whale at least
[01:04:20] <@eussNL_> it is much easier to just check for hashes anyhow
[01:04:35] <@eussNL_> and as you patch 1 bit, it fails that check
[01:04:41] <@eussNL_> even if size equals
As for respect and love from you, I don't need either of that from you, I need you to follow our requirements in order to post your stuff here. One of those requirements being you not make unfounded claims of stealth. No such thing exists and it never did. It's that simple.
[01:11:18] <@eussNL_> so if they patch out a check, it is detectable
[01:11:26] <@eussNL_> and if they resigned it, it is detectable
[01:11:59] <@eussNL_> hence why the whole DB OFW is not good for your safety
[01:16:10] <@eussNL_> "use PSN without such a high risk of ban"
[01:16:10] <@eussNL_> LMAO
[01:16:10] <@eussNL_> "With this DB FW, its the same exact firmware as" no it isn't
[01:16:10] <@eussNL_> that is a nice catch22
[01:16:10] <@eussNL_> if it was the same, it would not need to be patched
[01:16:17] <@eussNL_> and if it was patched, it was not the same
[01:16:36] <@eussNL_> and if anyone would claim it is, they have no clue about what they are doing and why
[01:17:00] <@eussNL_> not that I am generally full of of clues.... but at least I don't try to sell it like I am
