PS3 IDPS Viewer Tool Homebrew Application is Released


Sponsored Links
122w ago - It's been awhile since the last IDPS update, and today I've created this PS3 IDPS Viewer homebrew application based on research I'm doing and had not planned to release the tool out yet, but if someone needs it here it is (Thanks to J-Martin for the logo).

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

What does this tool?

  • Displays the IDPS
  • Shows Target ID
  • Displays Motherboard revision
  • Save your IDPS in IDPS.bin file

Note: THIS TOOL IS SAFE

When the program starts you will see the typical intro screen, if you choose "Yes" you will see the data from your PS3, if sounds three beeps indicates that it was not possible dump and show the error message, and if all went well sounds a beep and you are able to see the data.

Automatically saves the IDPS in dev_hdd0/IDPS.bin, you must open it with a hex editor and look hexadecimal values, for example (IDPS false, I will not reveal my IDPS):

e.g Notepad

Hex Editor

The IDPS in this case would be: 00 00 00 01 00 85 00 May 87 47 64 15 A4 F6 4D AA

It has been tested on PS3 FAT, SLIM should work perfectly in also.

Finally, in related news PlayStation 3 developer naehrwert has recently blogged (nwert.wordpress.com/2011/12/24/individual-infos/) about PS3 Individual Infos, to quote:

One of the PS3′s console specific cryptography works as follows:

At factory time there is a console specific key generated, probably from a private constant value and a console specific seed. Maybe that’s the key used for encrypting bootldr and metldr. Fact is, that metldr stores another console specific keyset (key/iv) to LS offset 0x00000.

That keyset is probably calculated from the first one. At factory time the isolated root keyset (how I call it) is used to encrypt the console’s “Individual Infos”, like eEID. But not the whole eEID is encrypted the same way, special seeds are used to calculate key/iv pairs for the different sections.

And not even that is true for every eEID section, because for e.g. EID0 another step is needed to generate the final section key(set). Each of the isolated modules using such an “Individual Info” has a special section that isoldr uses to generate the derived key(set)s.

But the generation works in a way, that the section data is encrypted with aes-cbc using the isolated root keyset, so it is not possible to calculate the isolated root keyset back from the derived key(set)s, because aes shouldn’t allow a known plaintext attack.

So far I can decrypt some of EID0′s sections, EID1, EID2 and EID4. EID5 encryption should be similar to EID0′s but I lack the generation keys for that one.

Changing the target ID for what ?

As i have told in a other post: Simply changing the TargetID in the EID do not lead into a full debug console. The TargetID is spread in the segments of whole EID and they are in encrypted form. The both idps we can view without decrypting the EID segments do not lead into a full functional debug fw.

Yes you can run dex kernel and install debug fw but again it doesn't lead into a reall debug console.

Again no offence to you im just a bit frustrated of the scene. Im still working on the full convertion and make good steps. It wasn't that hard to figuer out what to do and how to do. I just don't understand the whole scene with releasing stuff that is nearly unnesessary for the end user.
No offense to you but what are your issues about having this release? this is not a competition or something like that. In the end what the end user choose to do with this tool is up to the end user choice so what is the point about always questioning the purpose of this tool when it's obviously clear what you can do with this and what you cannot?

Hell CFW why can't you just keep quite once in a while instead on rambling and dissing others ? You want to be respected from each and everyone if one follows your posts carefully, but in the same moments you bash onto others in a sort of "friendly" manner. Anyway even your friendly phrases are annoying most of the time.

You are also talking that ALL they guys who do at least put out some stuff are stupid with doing the work they do because NO one needs this stuff. Maybe some guys do it for for fun, some things are just playstuff and wont be useful for anyone that doesn't mean YOU have to bash around telling them "god are you stupid go away with your useless stuff".

We don't tell you to shut up and stay away with your useless ramblings, you just show some silly videos with horrible english... showing nothing much at all !!!! and go on how easy most of the stuff would be, that YOU can do this YOU know that others cant do this can't do that... but all that comes up from you is nothing more then putting out crap at others in one way or another.

You compare math with nabnab and expect they are the same... if one would read carefully one could see that the english nabnab uses differs not that much from yours... so i would suggest you and nabnab are the same... but that would be well acting like yourself, and thats something that is not needed anywhere i would suppose. Why can't you just be quiet if you think that something is not worthy of YOU... maybe others like that stuff.

And it gets boring to read weeks after weeks that you are accomplishing so much without showing any real facts or results in that matter... Remember that you said quite a while ago ..month i assume that BETA of your so long estimated CFW will be out in 2 WEEKS... well looks like that hot air...

Now you say your work on retail to full debug...well all that comes is talk with some info one could google with a brain ! And you go on at others what the heck they do ? that they do nothing ? well they have at least something not just talk talk talk... and they don't get at you saying things like that do they ?

And the PS3 is not for everyone just a GAMING console... maybe you should wake up yourself that not all kids want to play only !
if you would know what a real hacker would say bout that bs.... a hack modifies something to the extent that it does something it couldn't do before... in the case of gamingconsoles one thing is MAYBE playing games !... but thats ONLY one thing.
