December 2, 2010 // 9:03 pm - Today Jack Chen aka anita999 has shared a PlayStation 3 IDA IDC hypervisor dump script on xorloser's blog (linked above) alongside a PS3 Debug / Test Firmware version 3.41 leak from Blackpen0 there as well!

For those curious, the IDA script is used to extract the protection page list of process obj in PS3 Hypervisor dumps.

To quote: For those who are new to HV reversing like I am. Here I made a quick IDC script for those interested in tracing the process protection pages to realize the VA and RA address mapping being used by the process.

You must execute the HV_DUMP.IDC from xorloser first, then apply this IDC later because it requires a opd_table to be defined first. and it’s for 3.15 HV only because that’s the only HV dump I have. process 0 is not extractable. There seems some data missing in the process object of process 0.

I am working on a different IDC script to extract the pages to a new file in order to get a file which RA=VA so I can analyze the code more easily. Here is the output for process 6 extraction from the dump I have.

This is great news, i'm assuming the Wiimotes are Bluetooth so there may be a possibility to use them on the ps3? i wouldnt want to go out and buy a move controller for this haha but i'm sure it will be worth it regardless, until then i'll keep jamming on my snes emulator and waiting to hear news on a dreamcast emulator, great news, well done

PS3 Media Server works really well for me, it plays everything with subtitle support.

It's basically impossible to emulate a PS2 accurately on a PS3, for the simple reason that the VU has 1024-bit memory access at a comparable bus speed to the EIB 512-bit memory access on the PS3. So, in general whilst the PS3 is far more powerful than the PS2, the PS2 beats the PS3 for raw fill rate.

I never bought a wii because the multiplatform games are better on PC/PS3/360 anyway, but the bad thing I couldnt play all the mario games and now finally I can play those wii exclusives en old gamecube games!

wouldn't expect psp emulator any time soon, the pc versions still in early stages and doesn't run many games.
