1400°
118w ago - Following up on the recent PS3 C2D CEX to DEX Flash Patcher and PS3Tools GUI Edition v2.6, today I have released a CEX2DEX application that will allow you to extract the METLDR from ANY (NOR / NAND) PlayStation 3 flash dump and create a valid DEX (Debug / Test) flash from the given CEX (Retail) flash.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (Required) / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Runtime Libraries are built in, shouldn't require MS VC++)

Features:

  • Can be used to extract the METLDR from ANY (NOR/NAND) flash dump.
  • Can be used to create a valid DEX flash from any given CEX flash (NOR/NAND).

I will explain the two main options the program has.

1200°
169w ago - Following up on his previous update, PlayStation 3 hacker No_One has now announced that the PS3 3.60 Slim NOR Flash has been dumped via PNM board socket and the 3.6x keys may be coming soon.

To quote: Hi mates, I'm going to be on vacations for 3 weeks. I just wanted to tell you that PNM project will be stopped during this period.

But, i've some great news for you. I successfully dumped a 3.60 NOR flash using one of the socket ! The second socket has been validated too. We are not far from our main goal : "jailbreak again the PS3" !

Here are some snapshots:

  • host console with a new feature (NOR FLASH details...)
  • PNM with a NOR Flash on Socket #1
  • an extract of the 3.60 NOR dump as a proof

Cheers

PS3 Flash Goodies - Part 3: The FULL PS3 Flash FileList

250°
335w ago - With all of the recent news of PS3 retail "trickery" going on, this post got postponed (mind the pun) until today.

The image below is a snippet of the FULL PS3 Flash FileList for the PS3's /dev_flash. It should be noted that the PS3 also has a /dev_flash2 and /dev_flash3, which upon rare occasion is updated, however we are not able to access them yet due to some pesky Kernel/Hypervisor issues.

The list is quite juicy, as you can see there are plenty of RCO files, XML files, as well as assets. Even the PS3 Startup sounds are in the flash! Alongside the assets are plenty of SPRX's as well as a few SELF's.

In regards to dev_flash2 + dev_flash3, we can only speculate what is held on there, but the Kernel and HV need to reside somewhere, don't they?

In other news, watch later this week for something cool. We ripped an Official PlayStation Magazine Demo Disc, extracted a Demo of Ridge Racer 7, and after patching it, successfully got it running solely off an SD card, using the PS3's SD card slot.

And a note to those claiming to know why the Retail to Debug HDD Swap Method...
