Project: Resident PS3 Devs Are Seeking a RE Specialist

Sponsored Links
271w ago - A few months back we gave a shout out for a talented coder, and shortly after SamY was welcomed to our PS3 Dev Team!

In recent weeks we have made some significant progress with the PS3 Reference Tool, which will be detailed as time permits in the months to come.

That being said, we are now seeking someone who can help with MIPs Executable (ELF) reversals from decrypted, non-obfuscated file dumps.

A few of the resident PS3 Devs have assisted us with this in the past, but for the near future are unable to devote the time and we would like to keep moving forward at a comfortable pace.

So.. if you have experience in this area, feel free to message me (CJPC) on IRC EFnet, reply to this thread or E-Mail Us.

As soon as you have demonstrated your ability, we will add you as a PS3 Dev here and invite you to our PS3 Dev IRC channel to work directly with us.

PS: Please keep in mind, this progress has nothing at all to do with the Retail PS3 console... nobody (including us) is any closer to unlocking it, and chances are we're all in for a long wait there!

Stay tuned for more PS3 Hacks and PS3 CFW news, follow us on Twitter, Facebook and be sure to drop by the PS3 Hacks and PS3 Custom Firmware Forums for the latest PlayStation 3 scene and PlayStation 4 scene updates and fresh homebrew releases!

Got it.. and forwarded it to CJPC to check out- Thanks kakarotoks!

PS: Nah, they already did it and coded an app to expedite the process (not reversing, something else) for their more immediate work... but if yours is correct also then it will be great to know we have someone here who can assist us with RE'ing should the need arise.

Hey Ps3news,
You've got mail, the test app is now fully reverse engineered into nice C code and I just sent it to you.
Let me know what you think.

EDIT: btw, was that file reverse engineered already (or the devs had the source) and the devs want to compare my code with the one they have? Or will my RE-ing of it actually be useful (would be nice if it was useful to you) and they'll just read the code and test if the functionality is the same?

OK, I sent it to r3pek and PSPSwampy via your registration e-mail... as for the chatbox, we are doing load-balance testing this week so it's offline.

The chatbox is a resource hog (as we all know) and so the Mods now have a Forum they can use to communicate with... it may come back in a week or two though.

Really only about 10 non-Staff people used it, so that is another factor to consider for us... is it worth slowing down the site navigation for everyone just so a few people can shout out "hi" every day while the rest never use it.

As i discussed with ps3news the other night, don't think this is something I could help you out with - but if you don't mind, i would be interested in taking a look at the 'test' file - you never know

(Contact me via my profile addy)

p.s. Shoutbox gone now?
