PS3 Hypervisor Dump Setup Script for IDA is Now Available

Sponsored Links
253w ago - Today xorloser has shared a PS3 Hypervisor Dump setup script for [Register or Login to view links] (Interactive Disassembler), which automatically sets up function tables, resolves rtoc offsets and finds some common functions in PlayStation 3 Hypervisor Dumps for easier reversing.

Additionally, titanmkd has updated the script with a patch available HERE, and as a result xorloser has now made his more compatible with older versions of IDA and updated it yet again with peek/poke calls labeled.

To quote: "It seems someone took some initiative and made some software themselves to dump the hypervisor once they have the correct hardware and software. So for anyone who has used that and dumped their own hypervisor I present this [Register or Login to view links].

This script will setup function tables including the hypercall (syscall) table, mmcall table, OPD, TOC, GOT. It will find common functions such as puts and printf and very importantly it will fixup all rtoc references which are used to access global variables and strings.

To use the script you should extract it somewhere and then from within IDA select "File->IDC File...", then navigate to where you extracted the file and select it. Please note that this script could overwrite your previous work, so please run backup your idb/i64 file before running it. I recommend running it on a freshly created database by loading your hypervisor dump into IDA as "ppc" at ROM address 0 and then running this script as detailed above before doing anything else.

The other tidbit I wanted to share was the updates to the PPC Altivec plugin source code which I had forgotten to include in the recent releases, but which a few people have since asked for. Here is the [Register or Login to view links]. If anyone makes any fixes or adds support for new functions please pass these updates back to me so I can share them on this site."

When I run the script in IDA Pro 5.4 the script stops without any exception at the function find_opd_start.

I am new to IDA is there a step by step debugger or debug mode with extended exception printouts?
