From the ReadMe File: True Blue Dongle Update v2.3

How to update:

1. Make sure your PS3 is running the True Blue "3.55-Dongle" CFW (custom firmware)
2. Copy TrueBlueUpdate-2.3.pkg from this archive to a USB flash drive
3. Boot your PS3 _WITHOUT_ True Blue inserted, and then insert the USB flash drive
4. Navigate to (Game) -> (Install Package Files), and then select TrueBlueUpdate-2.3.pkg
5. The True Blue updater will be installed onto your PS3 HDD
6. Navigate to (Game) and load "True Blue Update v2.3"
7. The updater will start, and will then prompt you to insert the True Blue dongle. Insert it only at this point, and continue. Your dongle will then be updated
8. After the update procedure has completed your PS3 will reset, and you will then be able to enjoy your updated dongle
9. You may delete the True Blue Updater from your HDD after the update is complete

Change log:

- v2.3

  • Fixed games requiring "BD Mirror"
  • True Blue firmware version is now displayed on the XMB "System Information" screen

- v2.2

  • Initial worldwide release
  • Support for running "True Blue" titles directly from HDD via standard backup managers

From Bartholomy on the update: This is what happen with Rebug TB using BD mirror. So if this is a problem of Rebug TB i hope will be fixed. For sure i'm not moving to 3.55-dongle, all my saves are ruined with fakesaveowner.

As far as I understand it, the hate for TB is because what they achieved was to decrypt newer npdrm games and what they did is they patch the games to check for the TB dongle or quit. The TB dongle does *NOTHING* other than a DRM that is completely not needed.

The torrent releases that are "TB compatible" just means that they added the DRM check that prevents them from running if you didn't buy a TB dongle. That's not any kind of help to the scene and it's people getting paid by promoting piracy.

PlayStation 3 developer [Register or Login to view links] also commented on the True Blue dongle in an interview, to quote in part:

"I can say that we don't like the disease that Cobra pushes with their Cobra and Cobra True Blue DRM replacement dongles. Ironically, they replace one DRM with another- in the process, stealing from those in the scene that did the work in the first place. Cobra offered some features that were new initially, but did so on the backs of the people before them. They made money off these people, like graf and others, and maintain no known public or private link to the scene. We find it interesting that even Cobra does not come out and claim responsibility for the Cobra True Blue dongle, but simple analysis points directly to them.

The Cobra True Blue Dongle seems to only promote theft, yet could have valid uses for those who wish to buy and play newer games on their <3.56 FW Consoles. Yet they have chosen NOT to give back to the scene, by implementing their own Cobra TB Encrypted Eboots, when keys for 3.55 and below are already known and useable by all jailbroken consoles. They have therefore instead chosen to profit from a situation that we all have been placed in by Sony's initial choice to remove otherOS and prohibit true homebrew applications in the name of "preventing piracy".

Additionally, the Cobra True Blue dongle took this one step farther by selling these Cobra TB disks- a clear violation of copyright and a threat to all of us wanting homebrew on future systems."

There is also some reverse-engineering updates from eussNL today as follows via: ps3devwiki.com/index.php?title=PS3JB2_Reverse_Engineering#Content_Releases

Note 1) : * the 28fe30 function is replaced with OFW code during exploit execution (which is why it is OFW, when there is no dongle).

That 28fe30 function mounts dev_flash, so they are in control before even dev_flash loads. When lv2 loads dev_flash, the exploit is triggered which, among the things it does, is replace the function with the proper one to mount dev_flash, then branchs to it and boot continues.

If your PS3 is higher than V3.55, sorry, you can not use this item. please use E3 flasher to downgrade your PS3 to V3.55 first.

Step 2: When your PS3 is in V3.55, you need to install the PS3 True Blue V3.55 CFW. Here is the method on how to install PS3 True Blue V3.55 CFW.The update method is just the same as update the official firmware via USB storage.

  • Extract the file, you will get "TrueBlue-3.55-CFW" folder, you can see "PS3UPDAT.PUP" inside.
  • Prepare a USB storage, create a folder named "PS3"in the root of your USB storage, then create another folder named "UPDATE" in the "PS3" folder, in the end put the "PS3UPDAT.PUP" in the "UPDATE" folder. So it is: USB storage----PS3----UPDATE----PS3UPDAT.PUP
  • Insert your USB storage into your PS3 USB interface and power on your PS3.
  • Move to the system update option and choose update via USB storage.
  • Choose the PS3UPDAT.PUP and start updating, go and drink a beer, wait until it finishes updating. Don't do anything during the update progress.
  • Your PS3 will be in PS3 True Blue V3.55 CFW after the installation.

It means you need to download the both FEAR 3 game file and also F.E.A.R.3_EBOOT_PATCH_TB_ PS3-PARADOX if you dont do this step,the screen will freeze and change black. ok i have downloaded those files and also have patched it, let's go.

  • Before you power on the PS3, just insert the PS3 True Blue and the your game HDD.
  • Login Multiman and find the FEAR3
  • Press X to login the game
  • It will take you back to XMB
  • Go to "app_home/PS3_GAME/" and click it to play FEAR3
  • Done, congratulations!

Below is a True Blue Patch Viewer from Corwin75 via French site (games-hack.fr/index.php?threads/release-true-blue-patch-viewer.6580/) for those interested. Rough translation (from ps-addict.fr/forum/True-Blue-Patch-Viewer-File-Downloader-t6296.html):

It aims to list all Eboot.bin compatible with the True Blue Dongle and to make available patches created by the various Team direct download. It also incorporates the latest update of True Blue Dongle.

Our goal is to keep it updated constantly so that each new release of patch is integrated into the app. Here are the features:

  • 4 downloads allowed then a wait of an hour to re-download
  • Update the constant soft output of each new patch
  • Download the latest update for the dongle True Blue
  • Description and display screen of the patch
  • Direct download link

If you have any ideas or advice on improving the software contact us.

This is where we need some kind of co-op with TB team and hotz. If reactpsn compatibility would be implemented in new TBCFW or dongle update, this would give us much more working space for fixing additional content.

My team sucessfully fixed several TB games DLCs with use of reactpsn. I hate use of reactpsn to play games. Fully fixed games are the way it should be. Some users don't have act.dat file for never loggin onto PSN and they are forced to use rebug. Rebug is not possible anymore with TB 2.5.

Even better option for us would be if TB team implements "peek and poke" in their CFW so we can fully fix games with help of reactpsn or ps3tools. Then the need for edited VSH.self for TB CFWv2 becomes unnecessary. If this is problematic for TB CFW stability or whatever, then some kind of "switch mode" should be available to enter "peek and poke mode" so we can do our thing and return to "normal payload mode" with DLC content fully fixed. Time to expand views.

Further more, releasing fixed update patches for TB games is necessary for all DLC content to work properly or to work at all. Releasing games with base content only if not enough anymore. Some games expand or get upgraded with DLC content. That's it from me.

  • Added PS3 firmware version spoofer
  • Game compatibility fixes

Note: remember if you are on 2.51 or 2.6 already you will need to first reinstall the old v2 CFW v2.5 first and then install the 2.61 patch on top of that (as explained in the patch readme.txt)

Today the True Blue PS3 JB2 v2.6 followed by v2.51 (ReActPSN / Cinavia Remover / Rebug Spoofer bug fix) updates have been released.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror)

24 - 4 - 2012

It has come to our attention that a small number of users may be affected by freezing at boot if using 2.6 dongle fw where they have modified their console cfw's files by installing programs such as ReactPSN, Cineavi protection remover or other such programs. The 2.6 dongle fw functions perfectly where the user has NOT carried out modifications to the console cfw. The console cfw should not be modified when running TB 2.51 cfw or 2.6 cfw, as this will cause incompatibilities which can lead to freezing at boot reported by a few users this evening on the forums.

In order to provide a feature rich experience for users we will add support for some popular programs/applications in TB CFW 2.61 which will be released within the coming days. We thank all TB users for their continued support and patience whilst we develop feature updates and firmwares.

Anyone who has modified their TB CFW and is experiencing freezing, may simply revert to 2.51 TB FW using the special fw file attached here and reinstall the 3.55 CFW DG on their console. This will compeletly fix any freezing issues. We kindly remind TB users not to modify the TB console CFW 3.55 unless we explicitly state in the accompanying notes included with upcoming TB 2.61 fw that the program/application is supported.

How to update:

1. Make sure your PS3 is running the True Blue "3.55-Dongle-DG" CFW (custom firmware)
2. Copy TrueBlueUpdate-2.51.pkg from this archive to a USB flash drive
3. Boot your PS3 _WITHOUT_ True Blue inserted, and then insert the USB flash drive
4. Navigate to (Game) -> (Install Package Files), and then select TrueBlueUpdate-2.51.pkg
5. The True Blue updater will be installed onto your PS3 HDD
6. Navigate to (Game) and load "True Blue Update v2.51"
7. The updater will start, and will then prompt you to insert the True Blue dongle. Insert it only at this point, and continue. Your dongle will then be updated
8. After the update procedure has completed your PS3 will reset, and you will then be able to enjoy your updated dongle
9. You may delete the True Blue Updater from your HDD after the update is complete

True Blue dongle firmware v2.6 has been released. Changes include:

Change log: - v2.6

  • Added PS3 firmware version spoofer
  • Game compatibility fixes

Change log: - v2.51

  • Added compatibility for revised True Blue hardware

ReActPSN on True Blue CFW v2, Update 2.61 (no previous PSN activation, no VSH mod) via ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/3353-reactPSN?p=38306#post38306 from PatrickBatman:

REACTPSN 2.0 or 2.2 install for true blue CFW v2 update 2.61 (No previous PSN purchase required the act.date file)

I havent tried to install reactPSN straight from 2.61 (you may need the VSH file route which is hazardous as you have to modify dev_blind)

1. Install TB CFW v2 and 2.51 or lower update if havent already.

2. Put your USB Thumb or USB HDD back into your PC or MAC.

3. Download both reActPSN v2.0 or 2.20 and Rebug Spoofer 4.00

4. Now extract reactPSN v2.0.rar (or 2.20) and drag reactPSN v2.0 pkg to the root of your USB Thumb stick or USB HDD, do the same for REbug Spoofer.pkg

5. On the root of your USB Thumb Stick create a folder called exdata. Whenever you get new rap and edat files drag them into this very folder (Every Time) usb:exdata/rap files. Always leave previous rap and edat files in exdata for when you reuse reActPSN v2.0 for newer games downloaded.

6. Now install the reActPSN v2.0 pkg and Rebug Spoofer like any other pkg from usb in furthest PS3 right USB port (but dont run the programs created yet)

7. Turn off PS3 and make sure that the True Blue Dongle is removed, Turn on PS3.

8. Run rebug Spoofer and spoof your ps3 (install files and activate spoofer, will reboot each time) check system info in XMB to make sure version is 4.00

9. Run ReActPSN and hold R1 (Some people say Hold Circle instead) during the restart process should only take about 20 seconds. (Holding R1 will make a ReActPSN folder on the base of your usb drive with 2 folders in it "BK0001" and "pubPSN"). Any content you purchased prior to this hack will be backed up in pubPSN folder in the form of rap and edat files (These are the very files needed for us all to activate any shared psn, dlc or psone classic games, THAT YOU OWN. If you had no previous content BK0001 wont be created).

10. Check to see if reactPSN folder was created on USB HD/STICK if not you didnt hold down R1 or USB HD is not in PS3 right port (cant use HUB at this point)

12. Copy the exdata folder contents in pubPSN to the exdata folder you created on the root of your USB drive.

13. Create a new user account on the PS3 called aa

14. Run reActPSN again *do not push anything this time (it will rename user "aa" to reActPSN v2.0 xrif xedat).

15. When it's finished your PS3 console will automatically restart again (If not restart PS3 manually).

16. You'll notice aa has been renamed to something reActPSN v2.0 xrif xedat. Thats it done.

17. Everytime you want to install new PSN , PSone games or DLC content, just go into reActPSN v2.0 ACCOUNT and rename it to aa (You can do multiple games, dlc, etc at one time, if you have rap and edat files, usb HD needs to be in PS3 right port when doing step 17, 18 & 19)

18. Download, extract rap and edat files (that came with dlc.pkg etc) to exdata folder on the root of your USB Thumb stick or USB HDD

19. Run reActPSN v2.0 (app) again, then install psn game, dlc, or psone classic pkg(s) after reboot.

20. Make sure to keep all previously activated rap and edat files in the exdata folder on Root of USB Thumb stick or HDD for everytime you use reActPSN v2.0 and also for archival purposes.

21. Plug in true blue dongle, start PS3, ReactPSN will now work for 2.51 and lower TB update Continue for 2.61 update.

22. Open rebug spoofer (app), and hit L1 + X that un spoofs (console reboots) it then go back to it and hit L1 + O that uninstalls the files (console reboots again)

23. Then update to 2.61. system info should read true blue 4.11, 2.61 (or something like that)

24. Run reactPSN (app) again, play game ("reactPSN" USB HD can now be plugged into hub if need be)

Hello, everybody! At the last time there was a lot noob news about loading TB lv2_kernel in IDA and what it really does, so I really wanted take a look at this by myself

This thing is really small, and took a few minutes for rce the "salt" of it. I spend more time writing some scripts for it

This is my clean idb [Register or Login to view links]
(I dont share my idb with comments, because its mostly Russian comments )

How you can see it uses some ofbusctaion, unconditionally branches, complex of instructions mtctr and bctrl.
When you will start reversing sub_80000000007F1114, the first thing what you will see that there is some condition of execution sub_80000000007F0F10.

Let's look this function, allocating a buffers already a good sign) You look subfunctions and see some crypt) sub_80000000007F0B1C is Tiny Encryption Algorithm
[CODE]
void decrypt (uint32_t* v, uint32_t* k) {
uint32_t v0=v[0], v1=v[1], sum=0xC6EF3720, i; /* set up */

will activate one of several effects at random intervals, such as erasing the internal PS3 HDD.


This scares me, not only will the PS3 HDD get formatted there might be some other effects for not using their dongle, who knows it might even update the PS3 to the latest firmware, or worse. Anyways for anyone with the clone do not attempt to update to 2.6 as of yet (just another remainder for those with any clones).
