Sponsored Links
189w ago - On this Super Bowl Sunday Brandon Wilson has released PS3Jig v1.0, which is a PS3 Factory / Service Mode Jig Dongle downgrader for the Sony PSP handheld.

He has confirmed the PS3 downgrader / Service Mode Jig PSP port can be used for <= FW3.55 homebrew and works on 1001 5.50 GEN-D CFW. For those interested, IndyColtsFan84 has also made a PS3Jig Downgrade Tutorial for PS3 Firmware 3.50 and 3.55.

To quote from his page: PS3Jig is a homebrew program for the PSP that emulates the official Sony "jig" stick for entering Factory/Service mode. All you need to do is attach a USB cable between your PS3 and PSP, run the program, and turn on your PS3, just like any other downgrade/service mode method.

AS OF THIS WRITING, THERE IS NO WAY TO EXIT FACTORY/SERVICE MODE ON PS3 FIRMWARE VERSION 3.56, SO DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE THIS ON PS3 FIRMWARE VERSION 3.56 UNTIL YOU READ OTHERWISE ELSEWHERE!

Keep in mind that I'm not a PSP developer, and that I know very little about homebrew for it; my ability to answer questions about how to run it and troubleshoot any issues is severely limited.

This application is open source and has no license attached to it, so you're free to do whatever you want with it; but please don't slap your name on it and call it your own, it's just rude.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the main purpose of this?
To enter Factory/Service Mode on your PS3 using your PSP. This is typically used to downgrade your PS3's firmware version to something that supports homebrew/backups, or you can use it to unbrick some PS3s from a firmware flash gone bad.

Will this cause any permanent damage to my PSP?
Not that I know of, but don't blame me if it does.

Do I need a special cable for this?
No, you just need a standard A<->mini-B USB cable. Among many other uses, it's the cable used to charge/sync PS3 controllers. You have one of these.

What firmware version does my PS3 need to be on for this to work?
As of this writing, you need to be on firmware version 3.55 or earlier. DO NOT USE IT ON FIRMWARE VERSION 3.56 OR HIGHER UNTIL YOU READ OTHERWISE ELSEWHERE.

What firmware version does my PSP need to be on for this to work?
Honestly, I don't know. This requires kernel mode, so as of this writing (and to the best of my knowledge), version 6.35 or lower. It runs on my PSP-1001 5.50 GEN-D.

I get an error when I run it on the PSP! What's wrong?
I really don't know.

How do I get this on my PSP?
The same way you do with any other PSP homebrew. Do some reading and/or googling.

It didn't work! What's wrong?!
Try it multiple times. I have noticed through a hardware USB analyzer that sometimes the PSP doesn't send the jig challenge response correctly, despite the PSP saying it did.

Will this work on the PSP Slim? 2000? 3000?
I honestly don't know.

It locked up my PSP when I tried to exit! Why?
I honestly don't know. Pull the battery, re-insert it, and turn it back on.

What tools did you use to compile/build this?
PSPSDK.

What dongle ID does this use?
0xAAAA. It can easily be changed and re-compiled in the source. I didn't provide a UI for it because it's unlikely anyone will ever need to change it.

I thought you said this couldn't be done! And yet here it is, prick. What's with the lying?
I said you couldn't implement the PSGroove/PSJailbreak exploit on it, and that's still true. Emulating the Sony official jig stick for Factory/Service Mode is different, and the PSP can do it. I didn't see anyone else doing it, so I did.

hi nabnab i have acquired a ps3 which is a DEX machine but is bricked and would like to enter factory service mode, I have tried the psp ps3jig but as i had suspected that will only work for CEX machines running cex firmware, I was wondering if its possible to compile a factory service mode tool for dex machines that can be launched from a psp.

there are programs that allow this to happen but they have to be launched from the ps3's home menu so i was wondering if you could implement this into a jig for dex firmware?

Today PlayStation 3 developer CrashSerious has updated the previous PS3 FactoryServiceMode Tool to version 0.2 dubbed the No Downgrade Dongle with details below!

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

From the included ReadMe File: Look ma, no Downgrade Dongle v0.2

In keeping with our Red Valentines theme this month... we release another red themed app. Tonight, in our second release we bring you a second handy app that continues our commitment to the removal or the need for ANY dongles. A simple app that should likely make it into everyone's PS3 tool set. An XMB application that places the PS3 into factory service mode. Now, You can now throw away that downgrade dongle! Also, as an added bonus we've included CEX and DEX versions of the pkg.

Psgrade was ported to all sorts of devices, even calculators ... none of those external devices are needed any longer! You may now re-purpose them!

Usage:

When you run the app it will beep once and reboot if successful. Three beeps indicates a failure, report the contents of factory.txt in this thread for help. (Factory.txt will save to the USB flash if you put on in the right most USB port of the PS3.) At this point you will come back up in Factory Service Mode (FSM). Place the Lv2Diag.self on the USB the Lv2diag.self will perform its intended purpose automatically. So be aware of that feature should you not be expecting the PS3 to boot back into the non-FSM XMB.

This app will not work on any of the "reDRM" firmwares, aka Cobra or TrueBlue CFW.

1. Install the appropriate pkg for your system; FactoryServiceMode.gnpdrm.pkg for CEX and FactoryServiceMode.pkg for DEX. Leave the USB Flash Drive in the PS3.
2. Run the app and listen for the single beep, you should enter FSM automatically.
3. rename/copy the Lv2diag_exit.self on the root of the FLASH Drive to Lv2diag.self
Note: This release simply exits FSM. Do NOT use the RSOD Lv2Diag released earlier unless you have RSOD.
4. Place the USB Flash Drive in the right most USB port of the PS3.
5. Restart the PS3. When it boots up, you will be out of FSM.
6. Enjoy sticking it to the dongle makers in your own little way.

Information:

The app detects the firmware you are running on so it should work on all the firmwares supported by "one" previously. (3.15, 3.41, and 3.55. Basically, Ones that are lower than 3.56.) During creation of this tool, the open-source ps3toolchain, and a slightly modified make_self were utilized. All code is original and makes use of no previously released or copyrighted code, this Lv2diag.self is made 100% with the PSL1GHT SDK so it can be shared freely and without concern for breaking any laws in your country. So, "no sony code inside!"

FAQ:

Q: Can I use this with the RSOD fix self you released earlier?
A: You should only use the RSOD fix Lv2Diag.self to repair a RSOD PS3. Use the supplied Lv2diag.self packaged with this release to simply get out of service mode.

Q: I'm having problems... help!!!!?!?!?!?
A: Post the contents of the factory.txt, which is stored on the root of the USB flash drive where you put Lv2Diag.self, along with a detailed explanation and we will try to help you out. Without the contents of the factory.txt file... we will not be able to help.

Q: Why didn't you just name the release .self file Lv2diag.self and save us a step?
A: We intend to release more fun tools for you at some point, this just helps you keep them straight from the start.

Q: It doesn't beep a single time for me, it beeps 3 times and goes back to the XMB. Can you help?
A: We attempted to fixed this in the v.2 version of the app, ensure you have that one installed. If you do have that installed. Run the app a second time, without shutting down or restarting the PS3.

Q: I see this, "ERROR: failed to read EPROM", in the factory.txt error log. Can you help?
A: You likely heard 3 beeps. We attempted to fixed this in the v.2 version of the app, ensure you have that one installed. If you do have that installed. Run the app a second time, without shutting down or restarting the PS3.

Q: I see this, "ERROR: SS EPROM read error returned: 1, product_mode: 0", in the factory.txt error log. Can you help?
A: You likely heard 3 beeps. We attempted to fixed this in the v.2 version of the app, ensure you have that one installed. If you do have that installed. Run the app a second time, without shutting down or restarting the PS3.

Q: I see this, "ERROR: LV1 mmap hvcall 114 not available:", in the factory.txt error log. Can you help?
A: You likey have OFW (With Original PSJB Dongle even) or a reDRM Firmware. You will need to switch to a MFW to get this application to work.

Q: I see this, "ERROR: LV2 poke syscall not available:", in the factory.txt error log. Can you help?
A: You likey have OFW (With Original PSJB Dongle even) or a reDRM Firmware. You will need to switch to a MFW to get this application to work.

Q: I get a 80010505 error in factory.txt on the USB drive sometimes. HELP!?!?!
A: We noticed this on one Phat CECHG system in testing. but could not replicate it on other PS3's and it only occured after the initial run from a power on of the PS3. In this case, every time we ran it a second time the application worked with out fail. Try again and post the factory.txt if the problem persists.

Q: Could you have made this just a little easier to use?
A: Nope!

PS3 FactoryServiceMode Tool v0.2 Changelog:

  • LV2 restart logging overhauled (more verbose)
  • Added peek/poke test with error logging
  • Added hvcall 114 test with error logging
  • Copies Lv2diag_exit.self to dev_usb000 (user would need to rename to use it)

Hello Nabnab, any fresh news on the matter? Also, does newly emerged debug 4.10 FW help the project? And are those vulnerabilities still in 4.10?
