Project: Dual Boot PS3 - 2 NOR Flashes with Switch for Brick Recovery

1100°
129w ago - I want to give everyone the heads-up on my Dual Boot PS3 (2 NOR Flashes with Switch for Brick Recovery) project and try and get some feedback...

For the last few days I've been busy unbricking/downgrading etc. The spare time I've had has gone into designing my own Dual NOR expansion board for the PS3

Basics are this: It allows you to install 2 firmwares - one on either NOR which can be easily enabled/disabled via switch on the mod board. Initially the NOR expansion will need flashing (Dump NOR 1 & flash NOR 2 with the image)

Could be used as a "Brick Backup" if for any reason you brick your onboard NOR, you have a second image on the expansion.
Primary use is of course to Dual Boot firmware without needing to use your programmer all the time - initial program would be a one-off.

Can be quite useful, hence the reason for designing it. I am quite aware of the fact there are other products available which function the same. This is my own design which is a fair bit cheaper than the current Dual setups.

Once final thing, please bear in mind this is a VERY early prototype atm and still in testing. More than likely there will be a few changes along the way, but updates will be regular (finally got my head round Cadsoft)

I've attached a 3D sample picture......
 

Project: PS3Jig v1.00 PS3 Factory / Service Mode Jig Modifications

1300°
130w ago - Last year a PS3Jig v1.00 PS3 Factory / Service Mode Jig dongle for Sony PSP was released by Brandon Wilson, and today I have made available a PS3Jig modification that attempts to support all PSP models followed by Test 4.0 for those interested in experimenting and sharing your results here.

Download: PS3Jig Modified by Nabnab / PS3Jig Modified by Nabnab (Test 4.0)

I need people who have a PSP (even PSPGo or PSPStreet) it suppose to work on every PSP now, i use a dongle ID = 4444

Also I need you to post your result (even if it doesn't work for you, please let me know, it's important)

This is a test to boot your PS3 into service mode with the help of a PSP. Like i said all the PSP is compatible and all the PS3 users can test...
 

Project: Cobra and True Blue PS3 Dongles, TB EBOOTs Examined

1500°
130w ago - As a follow-up on our previous article with the spirit of Operation: Mongoose in mind, we are continuing to examine both the Cobra and True Blue PS3 DRM-infected dongles and TB EBOOT files, and welcome any help with this project from other PlayStation 3 developers in the scene!

First let me tell you the following explanation is not a theory or any rumors, it's actually how the USB dongles work to allow different things.

We heard many rumors / theories about the process of the Cobra / True Blue but I didn't see anyone give any big answer about that (I'm not saying I would give you the big answer but the explanation how it works and how to make this possible)

Cobra / True Blue Part 1

Both dongle use syscall / payload (after a big investigation, both dongle also follow the work of graf_chokolo and the functionality of the dongle can be ported into a CFW (not a good idea from some devs I guess)

Cobra / True Blue use a lv1_wrapper (syscall implementation) that can allow to use subroutine function into kernel mode call....
 

Project PNM Stand-Alone Mode for PS3 NOR Flash Mangement

1200°
151w ago - As a follow-up to the previous Project PNM news, here is another update from PlayStation 3 hacker No_One below.

To quote: Hi mates, I wanted to give you news concerning the PNM project. I really missed time. But I just finished what I call the "stand-alone mode". In this mode, we can do everything concerning the NOR FLASH mangement.

Here are the functions working now:

  • copy memory
  • dump memory
  • update memory
  • display memory CRC32
  • read memory
  • display memory details

PNM is now working with 2 NOR sockets and 1 "virtual" one which is the PS3 embedded memory. It means for example that now we can dump/update the PS3 NOR like any flasher, but also copy its content to another FLASH and so on...

Next step now consists in wiring the PNM board to the PS3. This is what I call the "PS3 mode". I will do it next week

I will of course give you details, some nice pictures and maybe a video. We are not so far to be capable to dual firmware the PS3 and do some nice progress in FLASH decrypting.

Have fun !
Cheers

PS: For people...
