198w ago - About as exciting as recycling the PSN bypass blocked again news, today Engadget reports that Kevin Butler has inadvertently [Register or Login to view links] (now removed) the PS3 METLDR Root Key- specifically the HMAC Dongle Master Key that GeoHot first posted before Sony took legal action for hacking the PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: "Oh, honey. Sony PlayStation's (entirely fictional) Kevin Butler holds many (also fictional) positions within the company, but apparently none of them require him to keep up with (very real) news events. Travis La Marr (aka [Register or Login to view links]) tweeted the now-infamous PS3 METLDR root key towards Butler with the challenge to "Come at me."

What's a spokeperson to do but confuse it for a Battleship reference and retweet the entire code? Obviously someone let him in on the joke, as the tweet's since been removed. At least Sony won't have to subpoena for his info here. Geohot, we hope you're laughing."

245w ago - Just over a month ago the PS3 Hypervisor lv2 (GameOS) was dumped and GeoHot hinted that it was accomplished by commanding an SPU to load METLDR.

While this is definitely a step forward, he still doesn't specify what the read/write u32 functions are... or which functions to add to the recent XorHack release.

Those interested can check it out below, and to quote:

"After some experiment I succeded to load METLDR in spu isolation.

You need geohot's exploit to do this, because you need to turn spu relocation off (MFC_SR1[R]=0) and not let know the HV you are using a SPU (so no calls to lv1_construct_logical_spe or similar). For some strange conf, it doesn't work in HV way."
