33w ago - Following up on the recent PlayStation 4 Reballing developments, today Italian PlayStation 4 developer -Criscros- (aka criscros1989) reports he has dumped the Macronix MX25L25635FMI-10G and Macronix MX25L1006E PS4 NOR flash memory ICs (OFW 1.05) using SPIway and a Teensy++ with a ZIF socket.

HERE are some pictures, and to quote, roughly translated: I can communicate with much happiness that I have just dump the NOR flash memory MX25L25635FMI-10G Macronix, Macronix MX25L1006E and the new home console Sony PS4.

Everything was done by unsoldering the 2 memories and read with SPIway the Teensy++ via ZIF for power that I used the Teensy++ using the same controller without problems.

  • Here a picture of the motherboard PS4 SAA-001
  • The 2 Flash memory
  • Teensy++ motato on Flash
  • SPIway action
  • An analysis of NOR-10G Macronix MX25L25635FMI
  • and one of Macronix MX25L1006E

As you can see you can already distinguish the Magic Headers.

A special thanks to Judges for SPIway and Zeruel85 for taking me on this adventure.

Personally I think Sony have done this on purpose... SPI flash are pretty common in most devices. Dumping the console FW isn't the challenge, decrypting/extracting it is a different story.

We'll see what's in store. I would imagine the same could be possible in the future - rewriting the coreOS section of flash to unbrick/restore the system.

Still waiting to get my hands on a PS4, there's none left here in the UK

Just looked at those screenshots, the second flash can be ignored - USB-SATA controller FW (also present on the PS3 slim JTP-001 & JSD-001 boards)

The 256Mb MXIC SPI is the device of interest
