128w ago - TeaM_AC1D in the wild, from one of our newest and highly skilled members KDSBest we have something nice for the scene - a PS3 SPU emulation pre-alpha module that allows x86 PCs to emulate the SPU.

Hi Community,

I wanted to contribute to the scene , so I coded a tool that might help the community our members and fellow dev's. This Tool is intended for dev's so please be careful if you don't know what you do. I will not be held responsible for any harm.

My tool is a emulator for PS3 modules (e.g metldr), it is in pre alpha stage but I thought, it would be great to get some community feedback.

How to use:

Not all SPU Commands are implemented yet, but it is easily extendable and I will make it support DMA, all SPU Commands and SPU Mailbox soon.

First open a .kds file. Check out the metldr.kds to see an example. The rest is like a normal debugger. If you put dumps of your reversed functions in the KnownFunctions folder, it will detect it and mark that function for you.

Just for example Mark the whole cellSpuAesDecryptCbcCfb128 function in HexView in IDA -> Right Click -> Save to File. Name the File "cellSpuAesDecryptCbcCfb128" without extension and copy it to the KnownFunctions Directory of the Emulator. Now all similar functions get automatic detected!

"Step" Executes next command, "Run" runs till breakpoint (Breakpoints are not implemented yet). Debug SPU Code in Windows.

Any questions? Just get back to me at twitter

Stay tuned

PS: Thx for MK and cfwprophet (Team Acid) and of course to fail0verflow for anergistic, which helps a lot with it and even uses some functions of them.

Andrew it says in the title, it is for SPUs to be emulated on PCs. So yes, PS3 code on PCs so to say.

could you please explain in layman terms what's this emulator for: it is for PC to emulate PS3 code (I rather doubt) or is for PS3 to emulate PC code?

thanks in advance

Just an "SPU" emulator ??

Well for better understanding... all the isolated modules of the ps3 ARE just SPU ELF's

What does this mean ? You can emulate the PS3's module's like metldr, isoldr, aim_spu_module, fdm_spu_module, aacsmodule.spu, cprmodule.spu, and so on.

Additional it can decrypt the header of the elf and show the commands and system calls used without the need to first reverse them.

Hope that make some things clear.

SenteX does anyone really need to answer that for you, i don't think this is intended to be an actual ps3 emulator, just an "spu" emulator as stated.
