108w ago - A few weeks back details and payloads for Dumping PS3 Per Console Keys surfaced followed by news of a PS3 Metldr Exploit, and today PlayStation 3 developer xx404xx on IRC has shared his PS3 Metldr / Per Console Key0 findings thus far.
[xx404xx] lol wtf you can write to metldr!!!!!!
[xx404xx] 0x17014 - Write eEID/Write metldr Holy crap, it writes passed data to the region of FLASH memory where eEID or metldr data is stored !!! And GameOS is allowed to use this service !!! Do not experiment with this service if you don't know what it does or else your PS3 will not work anymore !!!

110w ago - PlayStation 3 developers have been busy recently working on payloads for dumping the PS3 per console keys, as once the per_console_key_0 is obtained with full EID decryption dongles and burned BR-D's may be a thing of the past.
Below are details from sphinxkoma and the PS3 Wiki (ps3devwiki.com/index.php?title=Talk:Per_Console_Keys) on dumping the per_console_key_1 via Kaz... it's only a matter of time for per_console_key_0 which unlocks everything we need.
To quote: PS3 Per Console Keys
EID crypto is very complicated, it is done so on purpose. first of all EID0 isn't decrypted with one key, and one algorithm alone. it is decrypted in several parts which use different algos and keys. the keys are all derivations of a per console key (per_console_key_1) which is stored inside metldr and copied by it to sector 0 and never leaves isolation. that same key is a derivation of the per console key (per_console_key_0) used to encrypt metldr and the bl in the first place as well.
isoldr clears that key from sector 0 before jumping to the isolated module. but before doing so it encrypts it with another keyset and stores it in a buffer so that the isolated module can use the new crafted key. since the operation is AES, if you know that keyset you can decrypt...
112w ago - Today SCEE Manager James Gallagher has shared a video trailer and interview with Dust 514 on how it will change console shooters forever below!
To quote: We haven't heard a great deal about DUST 514 since it was shown at E3 2011, other than that it's a first-person shooter connected to the vast sci-fi universe of PC MMO EVE Online, and that it's coming exclusively to PlayStation 3.
When developers CCP made the trip from Iceland to London to outline their vision for this new addition to their immensely popular EVE universe, I came out of the meeting amazed at the scale of the project. Suffice to say, DUST 514 is not just another shooter.
After the meeting, I interrogated Brandon Laurino, Executive Producer at CCP, to find out exactly why PlayStation 3 owners should be getting excited.
PS.Blog: With EVE Online, CCP already has a huge, engaged community. Why are you now trying to break into the console FPS market?
Brandon: EVE Online is an incredibly deep MMO and, for better or worse, that comes with a typical perception that it is complicated. The common joke is that you have to overcome a 'learning cliff' to get involved.
Part of the thinking behind DUST 514 is to address those preconceptions; we accept that there is a barrier...
