PS3 Hypervisor Dumped via Parallel/LPT1 Port with XorHack!
Today JaicraB shared with the PlayStation 3 scene a PS3 Hypervisor 3.15 lv0/lv1 dumped via XorHack using a parallel / LPT1 port as a trigger alongside source code for the application used to send the pulse.
Shortly following, he redumped it possibly due to file corruption.
Seen the thread title and thought this was a breakthru! I was trying to understand what "volvado" means and i think its "volcado" that means in english allocate so i guess he means to strip the allocated memory...
I was looking for the meaning of "volvado" and it seems he meant Volcado that means allocate so i believe that he meant to say:
Any question or suggestion are welcome in the comments. The next "chapter" will be to strip the allocated memory. Until then!
Can't help thinking sony's recent announcement about removing OtherOS might prompt MORE people to actually hack into their PS3's - the above appears to be a very very cheap way to acheive this! (Great find by the way!)
Sore foot sony? Maybe you shouldn't have shot yourself in it then eh!
PSPSwampy. p.s. Personally i won't be doing this (my soldering skills leave a lot to be desired - i'd probably have problems with the parrallel connector let alone the ps3!). But i will be keeping my linux thank you very much sony shame about the on-line stuff, but i guess i can try PS3Proxi again and if i get really desperate have a look into coding my own proxy!
I guess I understand, you run a program that sends pulses through your computers LPT1 port through the cable on pins 1 and 7 to the ram chip used, and then it will glitch the memory bus and allow the exploit to work?
