To quote: BwE NOR Validator v1.16

Application MD5: A9D0B21E8C0452EF00EFC48DA79D974C

Changelog

  • 1.31 - 27/05/2013 : added eid4 + fixed bug in entropy (note: possibly final version, unless adding firmware revisions/new consoles)
  • 1.30 - 21/05/2013 : completely rewritten eid, cisd, ccsd + added more validations to it, upgraded other minor validations. all due to upcoming nand validator (note: possibly final version, unless adding firmware revisions/new consoles)
  • 1.28 - 15/05/2013 : completely rewritten cvtrm validation + added more validations to it, upgraded/perfected entropy (possibly final version, unless adding firmware revisions/new consoles)
  • 1.25 - 13/05/2013 : added entropy check for metldr/bootldr (possibly final version, unless adding firmware revisions/new consoles (From EussNL: Entropy is used for checking encrypted sections, like metldr/asecureloader and bootldr, which because of their encryption will have high entropy. When knowing the entropy of other sections (based on known good dumps), it can be a good prediction of the validity of it without interpreting or decrypting it.)
  • 1.24 - 06/04/2013 : added more information to suit newly discovered ps3 data, improved validation, added a tip for bad md5's, removed version forcing (possibly last release).
  • 1.23 - 29/04/2013 : improved validation, added 4.41 ofw information
  • 1.22 - 16/04/2013 : added 115 more validations + changed statistic range for bootldr + other small boring changes
  • 1.21 - 11/04/2013 : patch3 error fix.
  • 1.20 - 10/04/2013 : added new console data, removed 3.56 patch (replaced with 4.40), added protection against using old validator, changed corruption check (again!), added quick info for console.
  • 1.19 - 09/04/2013 : changed metldr statistic range, minver check (to suit refurbished ps3s), corruption changes
  • 1.18 - 08/04/2013 : upgraded cisd/cell_ext_nor_area/metldr validations to suit unique metldr.2 revision, changed corruption output (again).
  • 1.17 - 08/04/2013 : changed repetition check, changed corruption output, bugfix
  • 1.16 - 02/04/2013 : added rogero's 4.40 patch, changed options, added 25+ md5's, changed stats range and id check

BwE NOR/NAND Patcher 0.01 has the same exciting features as my validator, only - less.

Patches 3.55/3.56/4.40 on NOR or NAND. Validates CoreOS and maybe TRVK. Does that without a loader/chiptunes and all in the console. Faster than other my validator and other patchers.

Found any bugs? Let me know. I just made this for giggles so its bound to have something wrong.

BwE NOR/NAND Patcher 0.02

  • Fixes the E3 flasher style (swapped) dump issue.

BwE NOR/NAND Patcher 1.01

  • Another bugfix update.

Finally, below is a WIP (via pastebin.com/DUivneHz) BwE NAND Validator, as follows:

BwE NAND Validator

This all in one validator/patcher will patch for 3.55 and will output the results of 2799+ validations via HTML.

  • 1.02 - 09/06/2013 : bugfix for patcher (did not fix enough) + added some more MD5's (CFW)
  • 1.01 - 28/05/2013 : bugfix for patcher (mistake from using old nor code)
  • 1.00 - 27/05/2013 : first proper/public release (because I am lazy there will be no loader!)

Can you please verify for us that your power cable connector is properly inserted into the connector. Usually the gold contacts have a hard time making the proper connection. Please let us know if you even get the stanby (red) light.

Thank You

Following up on the previous updates from BwE, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer sinsizer has made available PS3 NOR / NAND Statistic Beta for those interested in validating and checking their PS3 NOR / NAND dumps.

To quote: Features:

  • NOR/NAND statistics
  • NOR/NAND patching
  • NOR/NAND byte swapping
  • NOR/NAND infos
  • NOR/NAND validation
  • NOR/NAND extraction
  • DATECODE check

This tool works different than other validators. Instead of outputting a full log, it will output an error.log, if validate is checked. But see for yourself.

Always patching 3.55 is recommended to see if the patched statistic is right/green. ckp_management_ID values have to be equel as well as per_console_nonce (should be stated in error.log if not). There is one easy rule! If the error.log contains an entry, your dump is definitly broken!

Ros section is excluded from validation. Why? It's easy to repair, the hole section gets patched anyway and it leads to the rule above.

For NAND all known sections gets checked. But a big part is not or only rarely documented. So the hole part after cvtrm, cell_ext_os_area, OtherOS and unreferenced area at the end won't be checked. It's very important that you have look at the statistics and the “corrupt block count” of flowrebuilder when interleaving.

It's always recommended to check dumps manually with an hexeditor, and using other tools for validation, to be as save as possible! As long as it is not possible to decrypt the full dump, it's impossible to validate it to 100%. Keep in mind this is only beta.

Update: From sinsizer:

  • Added 4.46 patches
  • Some small changes

OFFSET: 0xF00896 --- VALUE: 0x20 --- 0x00 BLANK AREA
