78w ago - This weekend Sony PlayStation 3 hacker naehrwert has released a PS3 SCETool based on the fail0verflow tools, an Isolated SPU binary POC dubbed Friday and some EIDTool work in progress updates for PlayStation 3 developers interested in remarrying Blu-ray drives, motherboard keys, QA tokens, etc via Twitter.
Friday (C) 2011 by naehrwert - This is a POC for a isolated spu binary. Generate a self encrypted+signed with the metldr keys out of friday.elf. Then use friday.h to write a PPU application that loads the self by utilizing metldr and DMAs your console's EID2 to the shared SPU LS. It will generate the P and S block from it, that is used to pair the BD drive to the specific console. Yon can then DMA the blocks out from the LS and send them to the drive to remarry it to the console.
Communication with the SPU is done over in_mbox and out_mbox. MSG_OUT_* is send from the SPU code to out_mbox. MSG_IN_* should be written from the PPU to in_mbox. When MSG_OUT_READY arrives the PPU should DMA the EID2 to EID2_START and send MSG_IN_READY. When MSG_OUT_GEN_DONE arrives the PPU should DMA the blocks out from BLOCKS_START and send MSG_IN_DIE.

Today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer RazorX has released PS3 CFW EBOOT Resigner v1.01 followed by v1.03 and v1.05 which is an x86 / x64 application for updating 3.55 and 3.41 CFW game files for use on 4.XX CFW.
Then the app will do the rest very simple very easy very fast and an all-in-one application however it will require you to install 7-Zip, i was going to include it into the app but then my virus scanner thinks it's a virus and deletes it because it's stupid so just install 7-Zip and your golden.
Update: I've just updated my app to v1.01 now it will retrieve the content id from the eboot and ask you if it's correct if it is enter "y" for yes and it will use it, if you enter "n" it will then ask you to enter a content id in which case you can enter whatever you want then hit enter and it will use that.
Update 2: Added a x86 and a x64 version to the zip file.
Update 3: Added the ability to patch pkg files and Added 7zip built in so you no longer need to install it
Update 4: Updated pkg section, now you can repack games/homebrew, gamedata, ps1 games & minis with the last 3 you will need to enter the contentid also you can now change the package version of any of the pkg options.
Update 5: Added contentid app and param.sfo editor app from aldostools (thank you aldostools) to allow you to find out the contentid from any pkg you gonna use and to allow full customization of the param.sfo file, all build in to this app and setup to automatically load the pkg or param your using.
Update 6: Updated pkg unpacking process so now it shouldnt have a problem unpacking anything the keys are out for. Updated script so now it no longer asks you for the version now it extracts the version directly from the PARAM.SFO.
Hint: If your having problems with the repacking of the pkg please check the contentid against the param.sfo i had problems repacking a pkg until i realized the titleid in the param.sfo did not match the titleid that is part of the contentid.
