How to Load METLDR in SPU Isolation Mode on PlayStation 3


Sponsored Links
232w ago - Just over a month ago the PS3 Hypervisor lv2 (GameOS) was dumped and GeoHot hinted that it was accomplished by commanding an SPU to load METLDR.

Today dondolo let us know that simone has detailed how to load METLDR in SPU isolation mode on the PlayStation 3 and included some [Register or Login to view links].

While this is definitely a step forward, he still doesn't specify what the read/write u32 functions are... or which functions to add to the recent XorHack release.

Those interested can check it out below, and to quote:

"After some experiment I succeded to load METLDR in spu isolation.

You need geohot's exploit to do this, because you need to turn spu relocation off (MFC_SR1[R]=0) and not let know the HV you are using a SPU (so no calls to lv1_construct_logical_spe or similar). For some strange conf, it doesn't work in HV way."

Great news indeed and i hope someone from PS3NEWS native DEVS could dump the lvl2 (gameos) using this method.
CJPC said he would once the missing details are available (what the read/write u32 functions are, which functions to add to the XorHack, etc) so no worries.
Very nice when for example CJPC managed to do this, he must leak the dump
Definitely, the lv2 dump needs to be in the eyes of more than a select group of people who keep all the useful things internal and then whine when people want updates. There are countless others willing to help out without the egos or hypocritical anti-warez stance.

SkyOfHitmen: Nice to see you around... I'm sure you're aware that what GeoHot last posted was parroted from loser, who helps talented folks like GeoHot when he has the time but doesn't wish to get involved in scene BS.

Anyway, whatever you may contribute will be welcomed of course!

People seem to blame me for not giving infos, but i cant (and wont) as long as i dont have solid ones to give. Like 'Boss' already mentioned, Hitmen is known for passing infos that are checked, tested and somewhat "ready to use", and no "hey, look at me, i understood the public available pdfs and can do some code" ... anyways, still searching/trying around ...
You are not the bad guy in this game. The french man and egohot are holding back informations...
