Previously JaicraB with TeamHades dumped the PS3 hypervisor LV2 (GameOS) and revealed how it was done, however, the dump was not clean and so work resumed until today.

To quote from the included ReadMe file: "This application will dump all accessible LV2 memory on a jailbroken retail PS3.

To run this app, place lv2dump_07a.pkg on a usb memory stick. Install the pkg. Then run LV2Dump from the XMB. It should run for approximately 20-30 seconds, then it will exit back to the XMB. There will now be a file named LV2.BIN in the folder /dev_hdd0/game/





You can access your dump by copying the file out with your own code, or the FTP application.

Before attempting another dump, delete the LV2.BIN that is in /dev_hdd0/game/ as the next dump will append to the file if it exists.

The dump is right around 8MB - which will let you take a look at the PS3's kernel.

Expect more tools from us in the future for the PS3."

Too bad Sony was fool enough not to allow this in the first place.


what Sony should have done is allowed this to happen and with the installing the games to the hdd, make it so you have to register the game to the specific console and that console only so you can't use it with another console.... so... to bad so sad, they lost

But when you install the update, you click "agree" to TOS (and after 3.21 there was new TOS).

Now, when they install the latest firmware themselves, aren't they agreeng to the TOS on yours behalf? Maybe they even have the right to sell your house on your behalf? Nonsense. I'd sue them nevertheless lines in the manual. You didn't give them right to agree to the things you don't want to.

Another thing is, in many cases you might not even get back the same console, but a refurb. With refurbs, they can and will do as they please. Hate to give ya the bad news, but you're screwed legally.

You could not have said this any better 100% right on everything xD

I agree. That would be a waste of time and money. If one was to check their [Register or Login to view links] they would see:

You understand and acknowledge that any time SCEA services your PS3 system (either within the Warranty Period or under a separate service arrangement), it may become necessary for SCEA to provide certain services to your PS3 system to ensure it is functioning properly in accordance with SCEA guidelines. Such services may include the installation of the latest software or firmware updates, or service or replacement of the PS3 system's hard disk or the PS3 system with a new or factory recertified product. You acknowledge and agree that some services may change your current settings, cause a removal of cosmetic stickers or system skins, cause a loss of data or content, or cause some loss of functionality.


The only thing that can come from threatening to sue them if they update your firmware is they'll get a good laugh out of it.

Hell yea I'd call and raise some hell over this they have no right to force a firmware update upon you and if they dont comply then maybe contact a lawyer you might actually have a case against sony at that point. This is why you should find someone local to fix your PS3 from now on out should anything happen.

I'd kick a HELL from them - tell them that upgrade is OPTIONAL and that you've chosen OtherOS against the Online / PSN access and that you wan't your PS3 back in the state you gave it to them (e.g. with the same or lower FW) ...
