208w ago - A few weeks back graf_chokolo announced that he decrypted PS3 Firmware 3.50 and work on a free public PS3 Downgrader was underway, followed by a PSGroove Payload update to decrypt PKGs from PlayStation 3 PUP Files with today's update including the OtherOS.self and Lv2diag.self from a PS3 Service JIG decrypted!

Download: Decrypted Lv2diag.self from PS3 Service JIG (Teaser)

To quote via xorloser's blog, linked above, on the PS3 appldr interface reversal progress:

graf_chokolo says: Guys, i know you are waiting for the USB Dongle Master Key from me I have got now 2 fat PS3 with HV 3.15 but unfortunately no SX28 development board yet to exploit it

But i was not idle and the last and this week i was working on reversing of self decryption. And now i'm able to decrypt SELFs and SPRXs on my exploited GameOS by using HV calls only and no GameOS functions at all I reversed the interface to appldr which decrypts SELFs on GameOS 3.41.

So you won't get bored until i get the USB Dongle Master Key, i will make my findings and my source code public very soon and you will be able to decrypt your favourite games and programs by yourself :-) Let the fun begin, guys

Here is a "small" teaser of decrypted Lv2diag.self from service JIG

You cannot decrypt isolated SPUs with appldr, i think, because they are decrypted by isoldr.

I'm able to decrypt hdd_copy.self from 3.42 but not from 3.50

otheros.self decrypted

What can I say, I am extremely proud and impressed with your work. I am proud because I Know how hard this console nut was to crack, and I appreciate all the work and personal time that you spent to do this.

You have enlightened and inspired some home-brewers already and more will follow soon. You will be known in the forums as one of the first successful pioneers in the field of decrypting and creating working 7th gen console home-brew apps!!

This is incredible! I dream of using my third party ps2 discs again. I wonder how long from this date in time it will take before a custom GUI editor or component editors will be available.

Time will tell. I wish you the Best of Luck.

Thaa they never would lock out here self. Remember back on psp and pandora. They also dont have killed the service mode. Just found a way to block US out of service mode. And the same will happen for ps3 with time.

We need to find out as much as possible about the system. So that even future updates and patches cant kick us out such easelie. Like on psp.Even on the new GO there are exploit's and the aknowledge based on the primäre hack of old psp have lead to all this.

I dont believe they would go down the route of changing JIG hardware, I think they would change the response challenge in the firmware itself, then update their JIG dongles.

Sony wouldn't lock themselves out of their own consoles (obviously)... unless this is a similar incident to when they removed OtherOS support.

LOADS of people whined, Sony metaphorically slapped everyone with the excuse "We did it to protect everyone's best interests..." more like "We did it to cash in on future hardware & to ditch the freeloaders from our system (Linux Users!)..."

Who exactly is the 'Everyone'? A small group of autistic aliens that sony keep locked up for game testing & feed them on crack & sushi?


Why wouldn't they "lock themselves out" of the consoles if it is the only way to kill this hack? Right now they are ahead, but if the system is fully hacked with CFW and easy downgrade from any FW then they might just kill the jig entirely. M$ spent billions on their warranty extension as a result of poor designing and they were able to still do well.

Sony can spend more on their repair for in warranty and out of warranty repairs by developing a more cost intensive and invasive approach. The jig is just a diagnostic tool, not something that is vital to their business like having a system that is not hackable for basically free and by anyone with very basic skills.
