Project: PS3 4K Dumped by ModRobert, CFW on PS3 Super Slim (4K)

3w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer modrobert has dumped the PS3 4K unit memory and initiated a project that aims to implement PlayStation 3 4K Custom Firmware (CFW) on PS3 Super Slim (4K) models with details below.

To quote: "After releasing 3k3y firmware v2.11 beta (with OFW 4.55 support) and losing interest in the ODE "cat & mouse" game with Sony (OFW 4.60 and 4.65), I have spent the past few weeks researching and dumping raw data in an ongoing project to extract lv0.2 keys via bootldr.

My dumps include data from most of the PS3 4k chipsets, this was *NOT* collected by sniffing a bus (or several) in a conventional way, so even if targeted key is embedded in silicon, as long as it is processed/executed internally by any kind of microcode I might be able to catch it.

At this point I don't want to reveal how the data was obtained exactly, it is a method of my own design based on several known side channel attacks. The intention is to release the method eventually.

What is required to install CFW on PS3 Super Slim (4k)?

  • Added lv0.2 to the crypto chain diagram which is how it works on PS3 Super Slim (4k).

NEW consoles only: metadata lv0.2 (signed with nonrandomfail key) is used to check lv0 integrity.

Rumor: 3K3y - PS3Key (ODD) XKey for PS3 Consoles is Incoming

101w ago - Following up on the previous Blu-ray drive emulation rumor, today modrobert has announced that 3K3y, a PS3Key (ODD) - essentially an XKey for PS3 - is incoming shortly with some preliminary details outlined below.

Still can't get too excited at requiring additional hardware to play PS3 games with the advent of PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware a few years ago though.

To quote from EurAsia (linked above): I just got word from a well known team that will make PS3 owners happy!

Watching the video and drooling!! With those few words I hope to keep you interested...

Below is a picture (via facebook.com/x360key) as well.

More info while waiting for the video: In order to retrieve the needed BD drive key, Team 3k3y (aka xk3y) will release a PS3 software tool which requires CFW 3.55, after the key is dumped the PS3 can be upgraded to latest official system update (firmware/XMB) to get PSN etc.

The team is exploring other options to dump the required key as well, more on that later.

I'm relatively sure it does support original discs as well, but will confirm it anyway. Pretty much same functionality as xkey.
