    PS3 Hack Exploit SX28 Hardware Arrives, Bring on the Hypervisor!

    Today the PS3 hack exploit SX28 hardware arrived, so we can begin work on dumping the PlayStation 3 Hypervisor to examine!

    Up to now, both GeoHot and xorloser have successfully performed the PS3 hack while a few others simply obtained GeoHot's PS3 Hypervisor dump to study privately.

    Needless to say, the rest of the PS3 scene including most of us here, have been waiting to take a peek at the unencrypted bootloader and Hypervisor lv0 and lv1 dumps.

    We started by writing a Ubuntu Guide (as did titanmkd HERE) and attempted to use a 555 timer to obtain the 40ns pulse required to trigger the exploit, but like many others who attempted this we too had no such luck!

    Luckily xorloser shared some propered code to trigger a 40ns pulse using an SX28 chip. They are a bit harder to find, and a little more expensive (as you need a programmer) but the method is sound.

    That brings us to today, and our SX28 chips and programmer arrived - so we will be recreating the hardware, and giving this a go soon!

    It's probably safe to say that is still a ways off, mainly because all this does is dump the lv0 and lv1 so that Devs can examine them for holes to escalate privileges to lv2 for such things.

    Right on CJPC. Glad we have some "local" talent able to work on dumping the hypervisor. I'm sure you'll show it who's boss.
