3w ago - Following up on the previous update and recent PS4 ISO game dumps, today Microsoft hacker C4Eva announced he dumped the first XBox One game Call of Duty: Ghosts with details below.
To quote, roughly translated: C4eva, the person behind the XBox 360 hacking with iXtreme firmware, has announced that it has managed to dump the first Xbox game One from a Blu-ray disc, the Call of Duty: Ghosts.
No more information given, for example, if it has done with a Blu-ray ordinary or had to modify its firmware, as needed at the time with the XBox 360 DVD.
Obviously this does not mean that the burden of backups on the new console from Microsoft is close or anything like that. But one thing can not live without the other, they pararelos paths, and always arrives before the dumpeo of the games that the possibility of loading.
In fact, as the day came to be uploaded (within three months or within 3 years) this dump is not worth and you have to patch it, for example. But as a curiosity, there it is. He states:
124w ago - Following up on his previous update, PlayStation 3 hacker No_One has now announced that the PS3 3.60 Slim NOR Flash has been dumped via PNM board socket and the 3.6x keys may be coming soon.
To quote: Hi mates, I'm going to be on vacations for 3 weeks. I just wanted to tell you that PNM project will be stopped during this period.
But, i've some great news for you. I successfully dumped a 3.60 NOR flash using one of the socket ! The second socket has been validated too. We are not far from our main goal : "jailbreak again the PS3" !
Here are some snapshots:

Today Dertyp at PSX-Scene (linked above) reports that KaKaroToKS has dumped the PS3 LV1 syscalls, and plans to update his payload soon to allow other developers to dump the calls.
To quote: For Those Of You Who Are Asking What This Is:
level-1 syscalls are used to call hypervisor functions. On a PS3 the hypervisor is known as as "lv1? (level1) since it is the lowest level that runs directly on top of the hardware. The operating system is executed on top of this and is known as "lv2? (level2).
The two common operating systems are GameOS which PS3 games run on, and OtherOS which is usually used to run linux. Since both OSes run on top of the same lv1 hypervisor, they use the same set of hypercalls which has been partially documented here.
KaKaRoToKS Recent Tweets:
FINALLY able to dump (over eth) all lv1 calls!! Will push it soon!
To everyone misunderstanding: no lv1 access, all I did was be able to dump the "call trace" of lv1 hypercalls. same as payload_dump_syscalls
172w ago - A few days ago we saw the inside pics of PS JailBreak, and today SKFU (linked above) has posted that PSJailbreak is both detectable and bannable on PSN along with Mathieulh confirming confirming that GeoHot's exploit was used and that PS JailBreak can be easily dumped.
He went on to state: "Actually they used the geohot hack to get code with lv1 privileges running on the console, they then used this to 1. Dump lv1 2. dump the spm syscall table (that's after quite a bit of lv1 reversing to even figure the spm exists) 3. Use the actual spm syscalls to trick the spu into calculating the proper response for the dongle id of their choosing.
Without those steps that all require geohot's hack, they could never have gotten their dongle to successfully identify as a jig and they could never have triggered their hack.
The psjailbreak basically exploits the update manager which is the code that does the dongle auth located inside the spm itself inside lv1.
We don't have the payload it sends though because we don't have a dongle to sniff...
192w ago - Update: JaicraB has now shared a second (36MB) dump and update, details and the download link are available HERE and the guide is being worked on!
Today JaicraB (linked above) with the help of DemonHades have done what GeoHot failed to do, dump and publicly leak the PS3 Hypervisor LV2 (GameOS) for the entire PS3 scene to begin reversing and examining for new holes, exploits, etc!
But wait, there's more... they also plan to share a guide soon detailing how the LV2 dump was done (see HERE for the LV1 dump leak) so that everyone in the PlayStation 3 development community can join in on the fun!
This is indeed refreshing news in comparison to a lone glory hound out only for himself instead of the PS3 scene, seeking attention while blinded by his own e-fame from the notion that others in the community are just as capable, if not moreso, as will surely be demonstrated in coming months.
