PS3 Internal HDD Encryption is Disabled by Graf Chokolo

197w ago - This weekend PlayStation 3 hacker Graf Chokolo has disabled the PS3 internal HDD encryption, opening the door to possibilities such as dual-boot PS3 Firmware and using the decrypted PS3 HDD in another console.

To quote: Even without having a PS3 to work with, graf_chokolo is really active in distributing updates and fixes to his PS3 Linux gits. The latest one comes with an interesting update as you can see from his [Register or Login to view links] below. Maybe one step further to a dual boot PS3 FW?

Guys, take a look at "ps3dm_sm set_del_def_encdec_key" command. You can disable/enable virtual FLASH/internal HDD encryption with that And by patching HV process 9 (which sets ATA keys before loading GameOS) you can disable it permanently. It means you could swap your internal HDD and use it on another PS3. But you have to restore the content on it after disabling encryption because all data will be encrypted of course.

Soon i will implement ENCDEC device driver for PS3 Linux and you will be able to experiment with ATA encryption. ENCDEC device is responsible for VFLASH/HDD encryption on PS3.

For more details, see my HV page here: ps3devwiki.com/index.php?title=Hypervisor_Reverse_Engineering

And thanks to PS3 Linux fans who help me to test my ps3dm-utils Huge thanks to you guys. I can have fun with PS3 even without having one actually

And thanks to Dukio for his support with this blog and GIT repository.

Just a question. Why doesn't Graf have a PS3? I know they seized his during the raid, but is there a court order preventing him from buying/ possessing one now?

Awesome progress, terrific work graf! I'm wouldn't worry about a 3.61 or whatever patch. Those who are in the know already are not going to move past 3.55. It would probably be a requirement to setup a dual boot system. That really would be the best of both worlds.

CFW so we can do what we want while offline (I really only want to run emulators) and an unmodified partition so Sony doesn't wet theirs pants. One can dream...

Coming soon on the news page: Sony releases update 3.61. No added features, just a "security update".
