He also tweeted the following: In fact it decrypts most of the application selfs the 3.15 appldr key decrypts updaters too Looks like the isolated secure loaders aren't that secure anymore eh ? Looking for the curve list now. Ok so now if you can calculate K You'll also need to use a pre 3.40 lv2ldr but that's kinda obvious. By your lv2 I obviously mean custom firmware (for instance replace lv2_kernel) with a linux kernel. (of course you still need to flash it) Just one last thing, if you decrypt 2 lv2_kernel, you can calculate m then k, if you get k, and the keys I tweeted, you can have your lv2. btw those keys also happen to decrypt the ps2_emu binaries if anyone cares.
P.S. The self revision is located at 0x00000009 in the self header, it defines the key set in use.
Run this as a 2nd stage from metldr. Listen for mail
As usual, there are no release dates ever. But pretty cool eh? It's a real loader.

if sony were going to keep otherOS it would have been included in the slim, the minute the decision to remove it from the slim was made it was the end of otherOS. Oddly enough what happened with the first major update after the slim was released? otherOS was removed.
also people don't flame geohot because his work is rubbish, they flame him because he's an arrogant douche.
