53w 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.

Hello, could you look at pictures of the motherboard to show what is responsible for turning off the console? I console when started, then clicks as disabling and off.

Tried to change the power supply too, put another motherboard everything works. What happened to my motherboard don't know.

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
