Graf Chokolo Shares PS3 LV2 Kernel Decrypter PSGroove Payload

Sponsored Links
210w ago - Scene release group blackb0x have returned today with a PS3 homebrew application that will come in handy for PlayStation 3 developers and JailBreak users called the b0xloader SELF Loader.

Download: b0xloader SELF Loader 1.0 for PS3

The PS3 SELF loader will load the files directly without the need to package them. Just FTP them over to your PS3 or place them on a USB stick and load them.

From the NFO File: b0xloader - SELF Loader 1.0

A Simple SELF launcher for the Playstation 3.


Initial release


  • Install the package to PS3
  • Select a Fake signed SELF from the menu and press X to launch.
  • Enjoy.

The SELF you are launching must be "fake signed" for it to launch, if not it will bring you back to XMB, This is good for quick testing your development/test builds without repacking to a PKG every time. Future support will be added for non-signed SELF/ELF's

"The age of miracles is past."

Greetz to DeLiGhT


12/9/10 - b0xloader 1.0
10/2/10 - FTP Server 1.2
9/25/10 - FTP Server 1.1b
9/23/10 - FTP Server 1.0b

I for myself think its the kernel or the lv2.self.If im not wrong then i have read a post some where, where all boot files of a debug was be listed and there was also a lv2debug.self.And for what i know the service jig use a lv2diag.self.

Anyway i'll try to compile psgroove with grafchokolos bootstrap and first dump whole flash and then ill try to decrypt with his payload.

I'm sure the code is still in there, why would they bother removing all of it when they can just remove the menu options for launching the formatter, installer and setting the boot flag. When it was taken out the system was still locked up so they didn't have to worry about scraping every piece of code out.

But why all the interest in otherOS? can't people just downgrade or use asbestOS to get it back if they want it back that badly.

Still looking forward to seeing whats in those SELF's and how appldr really works

So this does mean that the code for the otheros is still in the driver of the ps3. Then i'm right with that they have patched it out from kernel.

We will see, one step after the other.In a few we will dump the whole flash including all boot files and also we will decrypt them to be able to bring back otheros. (if its possible)

Big thx to grafchokolo and his payloads and also for teaching me how to use his tools.

Oh and to all others sooo nice sceners they tried to direct us in the wrong direction... i'm maybe no learned coder..but im' also no noob and i hack consoles with love from heart.And if i need a reall coder to get the thing done, ill find one and do it.

Guys, i'm able now to decrypt all SELF upto 3.41 firmware using appldr directly without HVCALL 99 Just decrypted vsh.sekf from 3.15 firmware with this method. I will make everything public very soon And then you will see the low level interface to appldr. It's partially hidden by lv1_undocumented_function_99

Guys, look at wahta i have found in sysconf_plugin.sprx
OtherOS support is still there

Here is a snippet from sysconf_plugin.sprx 3.41:
