How to Load METLDR in SPU Isolation Mode on PlayStation 3


Sponsored Links
249w 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."

All I want is a media player that runs locally on the PS3, linux is fine, and I hope this eventually leads to that.

Great news and keep up the good work.

Great news indeed and i hope someone from PS3NEWS native DEVS could dump the lvl2 (gameos) using this method.

This is quite exciting. I've been reading all the going ons on here for the past month or two, and seeing all the drama that geohot and the others are creating with their "I can do it, but I'm not going to show you how" mentality (what is this? Elementary school?). It's awesome seeing the rest of you guys make progress on here like this!

France sincerely apologizes for Mathieulh. We're absolutely sorry about "him".

Seriously.

i hate this guy, i believe that his way to act, is out of minds order, even for
God is difficult to understand him. in the {i hope next} future, when ps3 will be hacked, nobody will remeber at him as a part of this project, we will remeber about someone who like to feel important watching himself to the mirror. btw it appears strange to me that now the piemontewireless page have been posted in Mathieulh's twitter page.

btw, it's very strange the choice to post that documentation page on piemontewireless, that is an unknown page. there are lot of sites, like this, there lot of wikies, so i do not undestrand the choice of this guy to pubblish his research on an almost unknown site, i'll try to track him down, hoping to see him posting on this forum some day

to protect and serve boss
