176w ago - Today Jack Chen aka anita999 has shared a PlayStation 3 IDA IDC hypervisor dump script on xorloser's blog (linked above) alongside a PS3 Debug / Test Firmware version 3.41 leak from Blackpen0 there as well!

For those curious, the IDA script is used to extract the protection page list of process obj in PS3 Hypervisor dumps.

Downloads: PS3 IDA IDC Hypervisor Dump Script / PS3 Debug Firmware v3.41 / PS3 Debug Firmware v3.41 (Mirror - Required UnRAR Password Below)

To quote: For those who are new to HV reversing like I am. Here I made a quick IDC script for those interested in tracing the process protection pages to realize the VA and RA address mapping being used by the process.

You must execute the HV_DUMP.IDC from xorloser first, then apply this IDC later because it requires a opd_table to be defined first. and it’s for 3.15 HV only because that’s the only HV dump I have. process 0 is not extractable. There seems some data missing in the process object of process 0.

199w ago - Although many have sold their Nintendo GameCube to upgrade to a Wii console, according to crediar the GameCube homebrew scene isn't dead as demonstrated in a Starfox Assault backup proof-of-concept iSOLoader video below!

Back when I owned a GameCube, you needed a mod-chip and could only run backup games burned to disc so it appears things have come along over the years on Nintendo's next-gen machine.

The POC video's caption simply reads: "The impossible just became possible!"

Finally, HERE is the USBGecko Log for those curious how it works. Check out the video below and long live the Nintendo GameCube!

550°
199w ago - Today Nintendo has released Wii System Menu version 4.3, which like past updates isn't homebrew friendly, and so Waninkoko has released a new Firmware Updater to allow users to update their Wii consoles without jeopardizing homebrew channel applications.

Download: Wii Firmware Updater v4.3 / Wii Firmware Updater v4.3 (Bug Fix)

Below are the changes Wii System Menu v4.3 introduces:

• Deletes the Homebrew Channel and DVDX, title IDs HAXX, DVDX, JODI, DISC, and DISK.
• Now uses IOS80.
• IOS254 stubbed BootMii is deleted.
• Fixed Bannerbomb less stupidly this time.
• Added IOS58.
• HackMii Installer Userland+Syscall IOS exploit removed
• ES_AddTitleFinish now checks the signature (Trucha Bug Restorer and similar won't work anymore)

Those who didn't use Waninkoko's application above may encounter "Wii Error:004". According to Nintendo, this error code indicates the system is attempting to load unauthorized software....
 

Nintendo Wii E3 2010 Report, New Zelda Video Game and More!

200°
200w ago - Below is a report from the Nintendo Wii E3 2010 press conference, which unfortunately debunked the rumor of a Wii HiFi HD console announcement.

The first game "Zelda: Skyward Sword" was shown with huge technical difficulties (video below). The wireless controllers were not being received by the Wii and the presentation was cut a bit shorter than planned.

Then a new Mario game was announced called "Mario Sports Mix" which features Mario, and all of the characters we associate with him, playing games like basketball, Hockey, Dodgeball, and volleyball.

Then Nintendo introduced Wii party. Wii party allows families to play each other using their own personal Miis created by them.

After that a game by Ubisoft called "Just Dance 2" made its announced comeback to the Wii. Then a game which no one had heard about since E3 2009 was announced with gameplay and that is "Golden Sun Dark Dawn".

A huge announcement came when Nintendo showed an actual group of gamers being asked about a game which had not been mentioned yet.

That game, after the group said it invented multiplayer was revealed and it is "James Bond Goldeneye". It will be released this holiday season...
