106w 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.

i'm still on 3.55 and my friend gave me his ps3 to upgrade it on 4.30 .. i personally tested everything this tool has to offer...
i'm pleased to say that everything works perfectly... tried running 3.55 HB on 4.30 at 1st and it gave me error but after resigning them with this tool, it worked perfectly and same with the Disk and PSN game eboots... and vise-versa
but it seems some games cant be fixed for 3.55 using this tool (Black Screen + freeze) they need Special Fixz...
1. Turn on control flags switch as default.
2. Auto-change control flags switch when 4.21+ alt switch is changed.
3. Fix resign NPDRM SELF/SPRX option, previous version not working.
4. Update instructions.
