The main draw for a debug console is simply the fact that you can freely upgrade and downgrade firmwares. I haven't checked if Rebug can enter Debugger Mode and work as a DECH for the SDK, but if it did, that's already half of the cool factor. Oh, and upgrading from 3.55 to 4.xx firmware then running a ripped game over the official BD-EMU then downgrading back to run other things, but that's stepping into the realm of warez.
Trust me, having a hardware flasher, OtherOS++ and the metldr exploit on a vanilla retail PS3 is a lot more fun than a debug PS3 on its own (a flasher-equipped debug PS3 though, OTOH...)
Portalcake pls keep away with this warez BS. This is a Video Gaming Console HACK scene. It's not a tablet hacking scene, it's also not a smart phone hacking szene. The key word is Video GAMING Console Hack scene. And even in the smart phone hacking scene you have warez in case of applications and games it self.
Then also pls keep away with rebug. Even if you change the to time change able 2 idps's and run a dex kernel on rebug... you can't use the debugger mode, you cant use target manager, you can't use the special downgrader pup's and jump between FW's as you want, you can't use BD EMU,... should i go on ??
About the metldr exploit you mentoined: You even know that this exploit is an hardware exploit ? So you need first to find out the test points on the ps3's mainboard to inject the metldr to the SPU's Local Storage directly. Do you knowed that ? Im guess not otherwise you wouldn't talk like that.
So TRUST ME if i tell you that you would have more fun with a bootloader exploit, which is actually done and ready for release but not pulically, then with your mentoined metldr exploit.
To Blade86 No its not fake but it is only the half of the truth. I get hands on a eEID of a console that got converted and i have the eEID before and after converting to debug. So i know which EID segments have changed and what need to do.
I to time also have a debug console at home that even can play BD Movies. Any one have think about that some companys produce or develope BD Movies for Sony and that they need a debug console that can play Movies ?
I have successful moddified anergistic to accept external per_console_keys and external EID segments for testing purpose. Also i have reversed some of the ps3 modules and know the non puplic eidx_iv's needed in conclution with PCK to decrypt and encrypt specific EID segments.
Actually im working on a windows app to do all that stuff for the end user. Cause even if you can decrypt EID segments with your PCK and the non puplic eidx_iv's with the aim_spu_module.elf you cant re-encrypt them. But you can do that all on a pc if you know what to do.
If you dont believe me just hunt and search for a request_idps.txt and load it into a hex editor and you will see that it is a bit more then just patching 2 idps's.
Hell CFW why can't you just keep quite once in a while instead on rambling and dissing others ? You want to be respected from each and everyone if one follows your posts carefully, but in the same moments you bash onto others in a sort of "friendly" manner. Anyway even your friendly phrases are annoying most of the time.
You are also talking that ALL they guys who do at least put out some stuff are stupid with doing the work they do because NO one needs this stuff. Maybe some guys do it for for fun, some things are just playstuff and wont be useful for anyone that doesn't mean YOU have to bash around telling them "god are you stupid go away with your useless stuff".
We don't tell you to shut up and stay away with your useless ramblings, you just show some silly videos with horrible english... showing nothing much at all !!!! and go on how easy most of the stuff would be, that YOU can do this YOU know that others cant do this can't do that... but all that comes up from you is nothing more then putting out crap at others in one way or another.
You compare math with nabnab and expect they are the same... if one would read carefully one could see that the english nabnab uses differs not that much from yours... so i would suggest you and nabnab are the same... but that would be well acting like yourself, and thats something that is not needed anywhere i would suppose. Why can't you just be quiet if you think that something is not worthy of YOU... maybe others like that stuff.
And it gets boring to read weeks after weeks that you are accomplishing so much without showing any real facts or results in that matter... Remember that you said quite a while ago ..month i assume that BETA of your so long estimated CFW will be out in 2 WEEKS... well looks like that hot air...
Now you say your work on retail to full debug...well all that comes is talk with some info one could google with a brain ! And you go on at others what the heck they do ? that they do nothing ? well they have at least something not just talk talk talk... and they don't get at you saying things like that do they ?
And the PS3 is not for everyone just a GAMING console... maybe you should wake up yourself that not all kids want to play only !
if you would know what a real hacker would say bout that bs.... a hack modifies something to the extent that it does something it couldn't do before... in the case of gamingconsoles one thing is MAYBE playing games !... but thats ONLY one thing.
As i have told in a other post: Simply changing the TargetID in the EID do not lead into a full debug console. The TargetID is spread in the segments of whole EID and they are in encrypted form. The both idps we can view without decrypting the EID segments do not lead into a full functional debug fw.
Yes you can run dex kernel and install debug fw but again it doesn't lead into a reall debug console.
Again no offence to you im just a bit frustrated of the scene. Im still working on the full convertion and make good steps. It wasn't that hard to figuer out what to do and how to do. I just don't understand the whole scene with releasing stuff that is nearly unnesessary for the end user.
No offense to you but what are your issues about having this release? this is not a competition or something like that. In the end what the end user choose to do with this tool is up to the end user choice so what is the point about always questioning the purpose of this tool when it's obviously clear what you can do with this and what you cannot?
