    Graf Chokolo Decrypts PS3 LV2_Kernel.self, 3.50 Decryption WIP

    Following up on the PS3 Master Key news and his previous work, today via xorloser's blog graf_chokolo has confirmed that he has decrypted several PS3 SELF files including LV2_Kernel.self and is currently working on PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.50 decryption now.

    To quote: Guys, i was not idle again :) I'm able now to decrypt lv2_kernel.self, ps2_emu.self, ps2_softemu.self and ps2_gxemu.self from 3.41 firmware by using metldr and lv2ldr directly.

    I'm working now on 3.50 decryption :) $ONY changes something in 3.42 and 3.50 :)

    hmm some good news, kinda made my day better seeming that about 30 mins ago i just found out that sony just released a new FW patch that kills the downgrade. Hopefully we will be able to have cfw soon or jailbreak the new FW 3.55

    Whatever security flaws sony had in 3.50 I'm sure they'll patch with 3.55 - any news on the changelog?

    Maybe Graf could try decrypting the 3.55 update see what's new?

    Using it to update the jailbreak to play 3.50 games, at least that's what I think is the next step.

    Sony are just being stubborn as usual, they're fighting to an inevitable loss. They can release as many updates as they want, they'll all be countered.

    Great news, $ony will try to stop us but they can't! Sooner or later PS3 will be completely hacked. Thanks to Graf Chokolo, keep working hard, great job so far!
