He also tweeted the following: In fact it decrypts most of the application selfs the 3.15 appldr key decrypts updaters too Looks like the isolated secure loaders aren't that secure anymore eh ? Looking for the curve list now. Ok so now if you can calculate K You'll also need to use a pre 3.40 lv2ldr but that's kinda obvious. By your lv2 I obviously mean custom firmware (for instance replace lv2_kernel) with a linux kernel. (of course you still need to flash it) Just one last thing, if you decrypt 2 lv2_kernel, you can calculate m then k, if you get k, and the keys I tweeted, you can have your lv2. btw those keys also happen to decrypt the ps2_emu binaries if anyone cares.

P.S. The self revision is located at 0x00000009 in the self header, it defines the key set in use.

[Register or Login to view links] released the PS3 METLDR keys:

PS3 3.41 METLDR keys:

GG SONY!!!!!

I'm in your console borrowing your metldr keys

Finally, [Register or Login to view links] also shared geoldr, to quote:

Happy New Year!

Run this as a 2nd stage from metldr. Listen for mail

As usual, there are no release dates ever. But pretty cool eh? It's a real loader.

they are both uint8_t, I think you lost a char while copy/paste, tested on ps2_emu.self and worked fine.

I always get 'Bad file structure or read error (line 2953). Continue?' and other random warn on ida 6.

Still they aren't 3.55 keys so we still can't play the newer games.
