Max Payne 3 TB Eboot Patch *CRACKED*
When we first read about the TrueBlue USB Dongle we were excited about it. Finally having a way to play FW 3.60+ games on CFW 3.55 again. What a great asset to the scene everyone thought .. until people found out that this USB Dongle was solely made for cashing in! Its only purpose was to check on the DRM the TrueBlue Team added to their 3.55 Eboots. What a shame!
DUPLEX to the rescue! Finally bury your TB dongle because we removed their unnecessary DRM and their Patches will now work on Cfw 3.55 without any dongle or special TB CFW.
Copy the files inside the rars into your games usrdir and replace existing ones Tested on Kmeaw CFW 3.55 with Max.Payne.3.PROPER.PS3-DUPLEX more to come ...
Enjoy This Fine DUPLEX Release
From anonymous also comes another Max Payne 3 Update v1.05 [FW 4.0] Patched for CFW 3.40+ workaround as follows:
Its probably best if they have the common.sdat from the duplex release, though I am not positive.
They need to backup files, preferable that person has spoofing
Game update sfo's, don’t replace the Game sfo!!!!
From CaptainCPS-X: Here you have the PKG files for easy install of this awesome “Anonymous” collaboration! (thanks to hellsing9 to for providing with the files) This is really cool since maybe more 4.0 FW games will be patched in the future by this Anonymous person! Thanks!

Let's be the witness of the ruin of TB dynasty. Love & Peace! Enjoy! iF u LOvE or HATe THiS GAmE, BuY iT ;]
Here is a list of the TB releases for those who need to remove the dongle patched games and overwrite them with the PS3 scene release (Duplex, NRP, etc) fixes as they become available.
In related PS3 hacking news SGuerrini97 made available a CoreDump BLES00025 NBA2K7 (Password: BySGuerrini97) stating: Here is the Core Dump + Original self of NBA 2K7 (BLES00025). I made the dump from the original disk, i think that i can dump ALL the originals games.
Also below harryoke has outlined how he did a PS3 full core dump, as follows:
Hello there my friends... as you may or may not know i have been looking into the possibility to get a full core dump from my ps3... a few hours ago i was sent a pm from ANON ... here it is....
Hey mate, yeh cfwprophet told something about the ram dump too. you can make a core dump on a dex. here is a quote from him:
'I say it now for the last time: There is NO fself for new games !! TrueBlue use the CoreDump function and a RSX exception to dump the games like i told the scene for over a half year.'
'Take MultiMan 04.02 which is a Retail NPDRM >> enable core dump function >> start MultiMan >> exit to XMB and be surprised'
'The Coredump function is a embended system of the debug FW and get handled of liblv2dbg. The send signal call aka send_signal_to_coredump_handler() and the trigger function are always running and CAN NOT be deactivated.'
He also said that you will get one 250MB file. there you have to search the decrypted file(s). it would be pretty sure that they use this method, because newer games wouldnt have debug eboots or fselfs.
If you open a tb eboot with a hex editor, you will see near at the end , that they stand right after the codes some passages with 'liblv2'. if you open a original eboot , you cant find passages with 'liblv2'. like cfwprophet said, the core dump get handled of 'liblv2dbg' and you can find 'liblv2' passages in tb eboots. so they use coredump pretty sure.
But the problem is to trigger a crash or so. i really dont know. i'm not a dev and dont have an idea. i just wanted to tell you this infos because i saw your post about coredump.
Here you can read more infos: ps3devwiki.com/files/documents/-SONY%20PS3%20SDK%20Documentation/360.01/cell/en/pdf/debug_support/Core_Dump-Overview_e.pdf
And here about liblv2dbg: ps3devwiki.com/files/documents/-SONY%20PS3%20SDK%20Documentation/RTL2.3.0/debug_support/liblv2dbg-Overview_e.pdf
Well i now have a few core dumps ...some were 250mb and a 500mb dump which i have uploaded including the log file...it is in rar format & compressed to 45mb
Hopefully this will lead us to the magic decrypted eboots that we all want. i hope someone with a bit more knowledge than me can use this info.
Just done a quick search of dump for USRDIR found this at address 002530E0
At the end of the dump filename you see EBOOT.BIN this tells you where the crash happened... the crash that happened on showtime....the file ends showtime.self. remember have your DEX in system software mode or you wont get a dump
I'm going to upload a 2 more dumps... try comparing the log files to see if there are anything common between them...
Please grab em before links go down: http://www.sendspace.com/file/ycec8y / http://www.sendspace.com/file/vht8zn (Mirror)
This dump is from catherine v1.0 and the decrypted elf starts at 0x1B6B30. BLUS30428. I'd need the original EBOOT.BIN (http://depositfiles.com/files/dn6i70v9o / https://anonfiles.com/file/d0a27bac0230c2c1d46980d0ac428545) to get the rest of the info (and possibly reconstruct the ELF)
If the decrypted eboot is there then maybe we don't need a full dump and a 250mb dump will be ok... i hope this is the case.
You could look at a games filesystem...lets say a file called hello.sprx - replace it with a dummy file with the same filename.. this could cause a crash. even if you do not see the squares in the bottom left hand corner still check that a dump has been achieved... as a few times i didn't notice the squares.
From badhabit and sguerrini97: To trigger the core dump you could use samples/sdk/dbg/exception_handler in the 4+ sdk for example using liblv2dbg. I've compiled the exception_handler sample. Then I've made an mself (samples\sdk\lv2\multi-self) that contains as first self the "exception_handler_main.ppu.self" and as second self the original EBOOT (renamed EBOOT.self) of COD MW3 (BLES01430).
Here is it: http://www.mediafire.com/?otqtt5lq97t58be
If I'm right this should cause a core dump of both selfs. I can't test it until tomorrow evening.. If someone wants to test just update to DEX 4.20, put the files from the archive to the fileserving dir (app_home) and execute from the target manager "/app_home/mself-main.ppu.self" then wait.
Trigger a Core Dump from a Retail Original Disk (PS3 DEX 4.20) by sguerrini97
In conclusion, while it would be miraculous if Max Louarn, Paul Owen, GaryOPA et al had a change of heart and stopped profiting off the PS3 scene with useless DRM devices odds are they already have another dongle scheme in the works for newer PS3 Firmware and plan to con unsuspecting users into forking out more cash unfortunately... so remember this day folks- good things come to those who wait and patience is a virtue.

Uhmm... for what we know that Jailbreak is a copied and modified process of the JIG stick of Sony. So without pressing power and eject button the ps3 dono know to check the usb drive to get some infos and let the usb drive have access to ram and boot certain files of it. And they tel not to do so with there JB2 v3.55 and we still can play older games from HDD and some newer one from disk ?
I don't believe it but would be nice to proven wrong.
Reportedly it allows users to play v3.6+ PlayStation 3 Firmware titles including FIFA 12 on burned Blu-ray discs, however, it only allows running older PS3 games from the hard drive.
To quote: I live in indonesia, and here in my country, there is a hot rumor about new dongle called JB2 and can play 3.60+ game burned to Blank BD.. It also still can play from HDD...
It require us still on 3.55 (not cfw), use the dongle (without power eject), and it will boot the ps3, then you can insert the copied / pirated bd disc. It already being sold and my friend also the sellers already confirmed it can play FIFA 12 and PES 12 and more game coming soon

Finally, according to GaryOPA the PS3 JB2 (JailBreak 2) device is genuine and will allow games that require the v3.6+ keys to run (including FIFA 12) providing the following requirements are met:
Console must be on PS3 Firmware v3.55 (Official Sony Firmware)
PS3 JB2 USB dongle must be used
PS3 games must be burned to BD-R (Blu-ray) discs
He also states the following on the upcoming PS3 JB2 (JailBreak 2) device:
Retail Price of the JB2 dongle will be around $45
A lot more newer PS3 game titles then originally listed below are now working, and have been confirmed by one of our trusted sponsors.
