First of all select if you want to unscramble or re-scramble your dump.
The first option is the first you have to use, it unscramble your flashes and interleave them in order to obtain a readable and extractable dump.
Once you modified the unscrambled dump (you can swap files or change some data) the second one allow you to deinterleave the flashes rescrambling them as the original ones are (otherwise dump won't work).
- BYTE REVERSE AND EXTRACT AN 80GB DUMP FILE -
Our very own Courier dumped a 80Gb Flash yet! It's completly different from a 40/60 Gb dump, it's already interleaved.
With this option you can extracte the kernel files from this kind of dumps.
- FILE SELECTION -
"Flash 0" (TOP): Is the flash0 dump file, warning, many USA dumps use the way around names, so if your dump is USA you should try to load Flash1 here instead.
"Flash 1" (BOTTOM): Is the flash1 dump file, warning, many USA dumps use the way around names, so if your dump is USA you should try to load Flash0 here instead.
OUTPUT (INTERLEAVED) file: It's the interleaved file that the tool produce using the UNSCRAMBLE option.
INPUT (INTERLEAVED) file: It's the modified interleaved file from witch the tool rebuild the new flashes (0/1) that you need reflash on PS3.
- ANALYZER -
It's the option that add to the log what's contained in the flashes blocks, the info is in this format:
On the Left there is the OOB block unique data, on the right (after the ==>) there is the analysis, so what the block contains.
It's fully working only for dump versions 2.40/2.41 and it's very slow, it's an alpha debug option.
- GENERATE NEW ECC -
Using the Option "Re-scramble modified dump then de-interleave it into two new flashes." you can enable this flag, so the new modified and rescrambled flashes will have ECC fixed (thanks to RPS for the Algo).
- FORCE BAD BLOCKS ECC CALCULATION -
This option shouldn't be checked unless you know what you're doing!
PS3 don't expect the ECC of a bad block to be good, it's safer to keep it as it is.
- GENERATE AMOXIFLASH DIFF FILE -
Bushing is working on a feature for Amoxiflash (a tool to flash nands fo Wii, XBOX360 and PS3) that will allow you to flash only the differences from the original flash file.
This will allow you to save time while trying some ps3 hacks attempts :-)
This tool need the .net framework 2.0 in order to work: most computers should have it installed yet, by the way here is the link in case you wonder where to get it:
okay, now will they be working with retail ps3's and people with no infectus?
His flow re-builder is primarily for Retail PS3's, and it also does work with Debug Units.
As for not needing an Infectus, at the moment that's impossible. The only way to access the hardware is physically, hense the need for the Infectus, or some other method, like pulling the flash chips from the PS3, and dumping them into a $$$ reader.
Nothing personal, but the SEARCH is your friend, this has been answered many times before, in the NEWBIE section. I'd check it out if I were you.
My heartiest congratulations to NDT for making this breakthrough ... I would have loved to try out this program, but I don't have an Infectus .. I have a few questions though ... NDT, assuming this program works some serious miracles, should we look out for some custom PS3 firmwares on the horizon ?? ... Secondly, would there be some way in the future to use the hack without having an Infectus ??
