Videos: Debug Firmware on Retail PS3 via PS Downgrade Demo

1200°
208w ago - A few weeks back we saw a video of PS Downgrade in action, and today ANTONIOPS at Spanish site Elotrolado.net (linked above) has posted up some videos showing PS3 Debug Firmware v2.15 being installed via PSDowngrade on a 40GB Retail version 3.41 console followed by running a PS Store demo.

Normally PlayStation 3 service boxes require a proper downgrade PUP file, however, comparing the SHA1 hash of the released PUP confirms it contains nothing special (just the old 3.41) so there appears to be something 'interesting' taking place when downgrading via PS Downgrade.

To quote, roughly translated: The noise you hear when you turn on the PS3 is the reader who is half repaired.

The Debug firmware I've installed the firmware downgrade PSDowngrade 3.41 to 2.15 Debug.

At the moment can only run signed code, such as a PS Store demo.

Those interested can check out the videos below!

In related news, graf_chokolo has now detailed how to decrypt PS3 PKGs as noted HERE.

To quote: Today he's shared his work with the public, however, it still requires some work, before it is fully functional. Right now, his code still requires the dongle master key, one that is buried within the PS3 console. The good news, is zAxis feels this key can be retrieved via a 3.15 fw console.

He is asking the community, anyone with a 3.15 console, to help retrieve this key. Once retrieved, PSGrade should become fully functional. Below, is his request to the public.

210w ago - A few days back we reported on the PS JailBreak Downgrade file leak, and today Hansi of PSXCare.com (linked above) has followed up on some previous work and shared a video of a PS3 downgrading with PS Downgrade and a Beagle 480 USB protocol analyzer.

One file is a PS3Key boot, the other is a PSDowngrade boot.

The PSDowngrade is supposed to be encrypted and not "analyzeable" according to a distributor. But maybe something can be learned anyway.

Have fun!
