PS3 Hypervisor LV2 (GameOS) Dumped and Publicly Leaked!!


211w ago - Update: JaicraB has now shared a second (36MB) dump and update, details and the download link are available HERE and the guide is being worked on!

Today JaicraB (linked above) with the help of DemonHades have done what GeoHot failed to do, dump and publicly leak the PS3 Hypervisor LV2 (GameOS) for the entire PS3 scene to begin reversing and examining for new holes, exploits, etc!

But wait, there's more... they also plan to share a guide soon detailing how the LV2 dump was done (see HERE for the LV1 dump leak) so that everyone in the PlayStation 3 development community can join in on the fun!

This is indeed refreshing news in comparison to a lone glory hound out only for himself instead of the PS3 scene, seeking attention while blinded by his own e-fame from the notion that others in the community are just as capable, if not moreso, as will surely be demonstrated in coming months.

BIG PROPS to both JaicraB and DemonHades, you guys deserve it and we are honored to see your willingness to share with everyone to further PS3 development. You truly are shining examples of what the scene is all about, and you will be remembered for this.

To quote, roughly translated: "DHorg friends because that is in luck, and I DemonHades and JaicraB we have dump the LV2 (supervisor) thereby obtaining ps3 kernel very soon we detailed the dump.

Jaicrab a pleasure working with you friend.

Best to all! A week ago I started to dismount for the first time a PS3 and install Linux without any experience. My only goal was to teach people to change the cooling of a PS3. Gradually I was calling attention to the world of SCENE and a week I give the LV2.

This concludes a long afternoon with only one thought. DemonHades Thanks for sharing your experience with me and spend the whole evening with me and discuss check for teaching me everything you know in two hours. The truth is that without DemonHades would have been almost impossible. A great and wise person.

After an entire afternoon leading a project in mind, we could dump the LV2. We had read access of the last session before entering XMB Other.

I promised. It will explain the method to follow if you want to do you the same. Enjoy it!

Next step? The next step is Inmagine. First of all tomorrow if I can I will explain the process of how to do it.

It is not a simple dump LV2, but a dump of the entire session previously opened in XMB. What you need to debug the dump way to make things not to mix the session Other and so we can analyze everything that we run in XMB.

This dump was made with an upper size LV2, which contains trash otheros session mixed with XMB. The LV2 area is intact, are the first 36 megabytes, which is lv0, LV1, LV2.

You open a door and you find 50 more, each new door you can open 50 more doors. Choose your path to investigate and share it with everyone."

Finally, pictured below is the IDA Pro SPU processor module in action!

I was going through the dump with a friend and found something interesting, It's probably been looked at before, but if it isn't then at least I can say I contributed something... lol.

Possible key or ID of the BD Drive:

If that would be so easy, many bank-accounts would have been hijacked. The SSL is not hack-proof, but serious pages uses comlex methods of validating connection. MITM have been known so many years now that it should not be an option.

However naive users can be fooled by page look-alikes but these cannot been certificated properly. (also possible malicious redirection...)
Exactly although i have seen some great look-a-like facebook hi-jack pages lately lol.

In regards of using (any) "unverified" or nontrusted DNS servers - it is indeed impossible (directly) to do much via DNS server itself ... BUT - who says it will not redirect the certain specific services / downloads / etc. (apart of the much needed version bypass) via his own servers to do some sniffing, eh?

As unfortunatelly using several "local" bypass methods the connection / program was pretty unstable with getting disconencted all the time and not even being able to connect to some games online at all (e.g. Everybody's Golf: World tour / Hot Shots Golf) I'm using that proxy on 2 of 3 of mine PS3s (not working for one with fw 1.50 neither any of the proxy programs so far) and all I can suggest is to remove your creditcard details linked to your PSN account and change your passwords often and keep them long and strong. It does indeed use https communication so chance of any of your details are pretty slim but still - better be sure than sorry.

A bit of OT - anyone still uses PS3 with some of the lower FWs (2.00 or 1.50 or similar) to go online? If yes - can you please at least briefly direct me to teh right direction for mine 1.50 (UK) one? I believe it SHOULD work with proxy if the "correct" version file is supplied but after several attempts to do so and all failing I'm a bit sceptic now ... Any help will be much appreciated.

try this for your 1.50 FW Issues:

No, you don't in case of SSL-traffic MITM-attacks also work nicely with forged/faked certificates.
