Project PNM Stand-Alone Mode for PS3 NOR Flash Mangement


Sponsored Links
158w ago - As a follow-up to the previous Project PNM news, here is another update from PlayStation 3 hacker No_One below.

To quote: Hi mates, I wanted to give you news concerning the PNM project. I really missed time. But I just finished what I call the "stand-alone mode". In this mode, we can do everything concerning the NOR FLASH mangement.

Here are the functions working now:

  • copy memory
  • dump memory
  • update memory
  • display memory CRC32
  • read memory
  • display memory details

PNM is now working with 2 NOR sockets and 1 "virtual" one which is the PS3 embedded memory. It means for example that now we can dump/update the PS3 NOR like any flasher, but also copy its content to another FLASH and so on...

Next step now consists in wiring the PNM board to the PS3. This is what I call the "PS3 mode". I will do it next week

I will of course give you details, some nice pictures and maybe a video. We are not so far to be capable to dual firmware the PS3 and do some nice progress in FLASH decrypting.

Have fun !
Cheers

PS: For people asking why I simply didn't use a twice capacity NOR FLASH (32MBytes) instead of 2 NOR FLASH (16MBytes). This is simply because it is easy for SONY to disable the dual firmware feature using what we call the "Product ID". Original NOR has a unique product ID (16Mbytes). A simple check and you cannot anymore use PNM.

Nice work but a wiring nightmare. I hope there is a user friendly solution that will come from all this research and testing.

Here is a follow-up from varicela on PS3 Dual NAND with a Fat 40GB console: elotrolado.net/hilo_la-dual-nand-fat40g-ya-es-una-realidad_1650176#p1725815463

To quote, roughly translated: After several tests trying to take the Fat out of nand console with poor results because of the long cable and data loss, I decided to approach the issue by putting the two Nand and activating of interest.

Here I leave a picture of the folded and functional flash1 a Sem001.

Sony will always be one step ahead of hackers. But I reckon the future of PS3 hacking is dual firmware.

So, if 3.60 and up keys are hacked, I wonder how long before Sony just changes them again? And if they do, how long before they can be found again? Meh, such is life in the cfw wars I suppose. lol.
