Download: IDA_Spu_Debug.rar

To quote: I had some spare time this weekend, and i have been reading up on my Python. So i set the goal for adding debugging support for SPU proccesor in ida, since the procs. is written in Python.

Download the package at the bottom (linked above) and overwrite the files in ida dir.

You can edit the line in gdb_arch.cfg if you dont have ida in c:\ida

to what ever you have.

You have to have Python installed correctly. See techbliss.org/threads/setting-up-ida-with-pyside-and-pyqt-it-makes-big-difference.211/ for help (there are finished packages there somewhere).

First set system environment setting: itechtics.com/customize-windows-environment-variables/

149w ago - Today PlayStation 3 hacker Slynk has posted on his new blog some basic PS3 NPDRM information alongside a PS3 IDA (Interactive Disassembler) Tutorial for developers.

Download: IDA PS3 Plug-Ins & Loaders / IDA

Recently he has been working on some PS3 QA Flag developments, and below those interested can find both the PS3 IDA Tutorial and NPDRM details.

From his page: PS3 + IDA Tutorial

Extract the contents into your IDA folder. I don't take credit for these plugins and loaders.

Loading a File

There are two file types I'll teach you to load. SPU and ELF files.

SPU files can only loaded in IDA 32bit mode. When you load IDA choose "Go" and drag the file onto IDA. Make sure elf is highlighted at the top. In processor type, choose "IBM SPU Cell Processor: spu." Click set. Click OK. "Undefined or unknown...blabla" yes. You should be good...

168w ago - Here is another open source PS3 SPU IDA Analyzer Module for PlayStation 3 developers.

Download: Open Source PS3 SPU IDA Analyzer Module

I didn't know about Jack Chen aka anita999's IDA SPU module until yesterday evening.

So we were actually working on the same.. Anyway I had to finish what I started, and saw that our internal structures defer quite a bit..

If you are interested, binaries and MIT licensed sources can be found here: http://code.google.com/p/ida-spu/

This is a IDA processor module for the IBM Cell Synergistic Processor Unit (SPU) (that can be found in the PS3 for example).
