The now famous, graf_chokolo, gave a crash course on his decryption payload, today on IRC. Our good friend Heden happened to be in attendance, and provided us with a log from the chat. This should come in handy, for folks needing clarification in getting his payload to work.
i see... this could have been done neater but its better than nothing
So this does mean that the code for the otheros is still in the driver of the ps3. Then i'm right with that they have patched it out from kernel.
We will see, one step after the other.In a few we will dump the whole flash including all boot files and also we will decrypt them to be able to bring back otheros. (if its possible)
Big thx to grafchokolo and his payloads and also for teaching me how to use his tools.
Oh and to all others sooo nice sceners they tried to direct us in the wrong direction... i'm maybe no learned coder..but im' also no noob and i hack consoles with love from heart.And if i need a reall coder to get the thing done, ill find one and do it.
I'm sure the code is still in there, why would they bother removing all of it when they can just remove the menu options for launching the formatter, installer and setting the boot flag. When it was taken out the system was still locked up so they didn't have to worry about scraping every piece of code out.
But why all the interest in otherOS? can't people just downgrade or use asbestOS to get it back if they want it back that badly.
Still looking forward to seeing whats in those SELF's and how appldr really works
I for myself think its the kernel or the lv2.self.If im not wrong then i have read a post some where, where all boot files of a debug was be listed and there was also a lv2debug.self.And for what i know the service jig use a lv2diag.self.
Anyway i'll try to compile psgroove with grafchokolos bootstrap and first dump whole flash and then ill try to decrypt with his payload.
Thats reall great
I knowed it. The debug strings for debug system settings, debug update settings along some more are in the kernel. Also i'm pretty sure that otheros is patched out of kernel. So dumping and decrypting some debug and retail kernels from diff versions will be main goal to enable the missing options.
