Max Payne 3 TB Eboot Patch *CRACKED*

Release Info:

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.

Notes:

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:

  • Max Payne 3 BLES / BLUS Test EBOOT and param.sfo
  • The rar has an embedded readme with the pkg links
  • 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!

In related PS3 hacking news SGuerrini97 made available a [Register or Login to view links] (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:

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

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

And at 05D87600

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

This dump is from catherine v1.0 and the decrypted elf starts at 0x1B6B30. BLUS30428. I'd need the original EBOOT.BIN ([Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]) 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: [Register or Login to view links]

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.

very crazy stuff, i think you will probably need kind of update, or adapter, or something for the true blue to work, the pieces just do not add up to me.

Ouch! Please don't make another dongle

If they did make another dongle for high rocket price then, I guess I have to say goodbye to PS3 and welcome 360

I'm afraid that if True Blue really releases a new dongle soon, they won't release any more eboot for the dongle, as it already has a lot of clones, and they probably want to sell more from their new dongle...

TrueBlue (JB2) will stop production and another dongle will be released according to LighTake's site:

True Blue JB2 was stop producing and a newest replace product will be released in July, please pay close attention to TB official site news update in recently days. Any questions just contact sales for help.

A newer replace DRM dongle with build-in ndw function will be released July 20th.

Q: Does the old TB dongle compatible with the new one?
A: Yes! our supplier said the old TB will still get support on updating so that it can play new games as the new dongle. If there is a change, I will advance notice.

Q: What's the name and function of the new dongle?
A: It's still a mystery currently, I will update immediately if I heard something from our supplier.

We have confirmed that the new dongle is still called True Blue (aka JB2 / TB), but it was changed new packaging and add more function in it. What's the new technical support? I am sorry we don't know currently except compatible with the old TB eboots.

i never tested my dongle updater before release, anyone else tried it? cause puss in boots seems to be the only one game that works it just happened to be the one that i tried? maybe i should start playing the lottery? lol. maybe it has some significance in reverse engineering the dongle though?

#792 - elser1 - 138w ago

i'm a little confused (nothing new there) so does this mean with the pkg i can use a tb dongle once then instal pkg and no longer need dongle?

that would be great if so and if someone would lend/hire me a dongle for a day.. LOL

Wololo's thoughts are ridiculously nonsense. Who cares if TB team will change encryption scheme. They still want us to believe if someone hacks TB, there will be no more new games. This is the same logic if we share PS3 exploits they can patch it. Who cares if Sony of TB patch their exploits. Of caurse they'll patch it, it is their job to protect their property. But if you call yourself a scene developer you can always comeup wit a new solution. This is what makes a scene The Scene.

These "It will lead to piracy" and "They can patch it" execuses are just a cover for their fear of Sony.
