141w ago - Today PS3 hacker Mathieulh has tweeted some new details on dumping LV0 from PlayStation 3 3.60 Firmware and obtaining the new keys, followed by Ps3WeOwnYoU claiming he has already reproduced it to confirm it works.
Below are all the tweets, as follows:
xShadow125 You can update from your own pup only from 3.55 or lower, unless you have an exploit.
xShadow125 Of course that should be fixed in upcoming lv0 revisions anyway (By moving the ldrs to the top of lv0)
xShadow125 You run the 3.60 lv0, then you switch the nor, and pull the cell reset line, and you dump the extra KBs where the loaders are.
xShadow125 Basically you have a nor with 3.55 (or lower) lv0 and your own small lv1 code that does the dump, and 3.60 lv0 on the other.
xShadow125 You wont get all of lv0 but the part with the loaders shouldn’t be overwritten.
xShadow125 You can actually get all the 3.60 keys/loaders without knowing lv0 keys by dumping lv0 from ram with dual nor and signed lv1.
To those planning on building a 3.56+ pup for whatever reason, the files attributes changed, the group and user ids for the files as well.

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.
