PS3 JIG Pictures Surface, PlayStation 3 Service Mode Tests Begin


Sponsored Links
280w ago - Recently Dutch user Sinnerman has leaked some new PS3 JIG pictures on the QJ.net (linked above) forums, and has revealed that PlayStation 3 Service Mode testing is underway with SKFU.

The application pictured below is used to create registry files required to finalize the PlayStation 3 JIG (SVC-H3A606SS) process, which must contain a valid e-mail address as they are authenticated with the SCEI server.

While we await the test results (and hopefully some PS3 JIG internal pictures), some related articles on both Sony's elusive PS3 JIG and PS3 Service Mode are as follows for those who may have missed them: PlayStation 3 Service Mode JIG Set-Up Files Leaked, Some PlayStation 3 Service Mode Details and finally PS3 Controller EEPROM Dumped And Service Mode Information.

Finally, the big question.. what if PS3 Retail consoles could be converted to PS3 Debug consoles through the PS3 JIG? Well, depending on the post-modification differences if it ended up working at a certain Firmware level then you could always convert at that level, assuming that you can get around it being verified on SCE servers.

The PS3 can tell what type it is from a syscall, one particular configuration of which is "Arcade"... to date though, nobody has been able to successfully flash Debug Firmware to Retail consoles so only time will tell.

As far as I know, only Sinnerman has a JIG at the moment but I believe SKFU is assisting him (via Internet) to see if anything useful can be obtained from it... giving Sinnerman ideas on what to look for, experiment with and so on.

As to the importance of a JIG, well, this is covered somewhat in the PS3 Dev posts linked in the first post but in short some feel if the process can be replicated (overcoming all the obstacles along the way) then everyone can turn their Retail PS3 consoles into Debug ones.

Of course then they won't be able to run Blu-ray movies, etc but at least those who had the tools and knowledge could run their own code on them.

I wouldn't advise waiting on "pins & needles" as you put it though, only because (like most recent progress) if anything important surfaces it will likely be patchable and those who discover it won't release it publically.

Still, for general news updates it's interesting stuff... especially if some internal JIG pics surface.

i'm sorry, I've read this thread a few times ans i'm still kinda lost.

so far sinnerman has leaked more jig info/ pics/ tools
skfu has gotten a hold of them and is waiting till he hears from sinnerman before he releases any info.
since a pic is worth 1000 words i wouldn't dare try to decipher exactly whats going on although i do have a few ideas.

so in a nutshell, skfu has got access to a jig & we're suppose to wait on pins & needles until there's news of an update.

if someone would be so kind as to explain to me the importance of a jig to the average joe (even if it can be reverse engineered), if its to have access to a debug, it still wont do any good without an $dk, & knowledge of how to use it.

Just a thought

why do you think the major corporations have not caught onto little things like fake servers for authentication and what not?

i think yes, i have see pics about leaked jig software and something i know is visible the file APIDIO.dll require a hardware i know, i work on lan and if i recall, this file is used by CONTEC who purpose a kind of lan adapter.

Thats good , just don't feel like messing with the hardware of the beast , it bites

i have read in this thread something about iphone confusion and i know better things on iphone.. just create a fake server is maybe the solution for iphone, the fact where you just patch the exe and add line about fake server in a specific file in winoows was used to make false authentification

Both of these we probably shouldn't rehash here, as they are already covered extensively in the PS3 Debug / Test Consoles Forum here:

Be sure to check the FAQ Sticky thread there by CJPC too!

Yeah most of the time such hacks, leaks, releases are useless no offence.

Ok thats for me the first and only really thing from SKFU that can be very interesting.
Again "No offence meant" but NOW he shows what great hacker he are.In case of the last infos he posted, im sure the things he saied are true but they are useless otherwise he woud not gived away to normal users.

Than to claim me a "lame Pirate" becouse i only want backups for free and not a whole week later a leak like this.If he can finish this project and we are able to use the Service Mod and/or can make our own retail ps3's to debug one so, what he think what will we do?.....or better say the whole world?

Sure we will use backups...every single one who readed this thread will do so.

Anyway thats a real good and great project and i wish good luck to him to get this beast down.
