158w ago - After creating Simple AVCHD Manager - the first AVCHD manager for a jailbroken PS3 - some of the other programs I have been exploring had the requirement for a file selection screen in common, so i decided to create a simple file manager utilising a pointer like Multiman and added some other useful functions.
169w ago - Today CJPC has assisted blackb0x with their latest release, dubbed PS3 LV2Dump v0.7a which enables PSGroove users to finally dump the PS3 LV2 GameOS for examination, followed shortly by a PS3 LV2 Dump for those interested to examine!

192w ago - As promised, today JaicraB has revealed the PS3 Hypervisor LV2 (GameOS) dump method and circuit used to allow the PS3's memory to persist while booting into OtherOS, which then allows dumping of the memory.
This was apparently on a CECHG model system with board model SEM-001 1-875-384-21
To quote, roughly translated: DemonHades / JaicraB Extraction Method:
First of all, be careful if you're going to attempt this, I am not responsible.
It's about keeping the RAM alive when moving to OtherOS. To do this the ram must be fed at all times so as not to erase the data.
Overview map Refer to the First Image below.

This area is sensitive. At that point we had settled with two resistors together. You have to remove it (remove it, but you could also cause a short circuit). It has 4 legs. At this point it tells the RAM and the integrated MOSFET turns off.

197w ago - Today we have some news from Spanish PS3 developer DemonHades (linked above) of their ongoing PS3 Hypervisor and Bootstrap lv0/lv1 examination, and news of CodePlay's Offload: Community Edition which is now available free for Cell Broadband Engine devices.
To quote: "The Offload tool suite provides the Offload tool as well as a full Windows based GCC SDK, enabling the easy offloading code to the SPUs on the Cell Broadband Engine.
It also includes integration with a Cell Broadband Engine enhanced Eclipse CDT, and the Offload Player Debugger, for executing and debugging code on the target Cell Broadband Engine hardware. Offload: Community Edition is free to use for academic research and commercial projects, subject to licensing conditions."

198w ago - Today xorloser has shared a PS3 Hypervisor Dump setup script for IDA (Interactive Disassembler), which automatically sets up function tables, resolves rtoc offsets and finds some common functions in PlayStation 3 Hypervisor Dumps for easier reversing.
Additionally, titanmkd has updated the script with a patch available HERE, and as a result xorloser has now made his more compatible with older versions of IDA and updated it yet again with peek/poke calls labeled.
To quote: "It seems someone took some initiative and made some software themselves to dump the hypervisor once they have the correct hardware and software. So for anyone who has used that and dumped their own hypervisor I present...
