190w ago - Today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer S0uL of DemonHades has shared details on discovering the PS3 Firmware 3.6+ Keys, which comes a few days after Sony PS3 hacker Mathieulh leaked the 3.6 X-Platform-Passphrase stating that the PSN passphrase changed in version 3.70.

To quote, roughly translated: Hello demons,

Well, this is a tutorial for discovering the keys of 3.6 + made ​​by S0uL and DemonHades (thanks for the info and review Demon) for all guys who think it is easy to discover the keys.

Requirements:

  • A brain;
  • Electronic Hardware expensive:
  • KNOWLEDGE plate design;
  • KNOWLEDGE SMD and BGA;
  • Oscilloscopes High Frequency;
  • KNOWLEDGE ASM CFP
  • KNOWLEDGE in the Architecture of the PS3;
  • Patience.

Let's go see the whole process:

To have the keys, we need to have the decryption LV0. The desempaquetea LV0 is in RAM, and is decrypted with the key bld. There, the keys are already in the SPU, which is like a safe, impossible to enter (are isolated from the outside).

When the loaders and lv are already loaded in the SPU, the lv1 clean all traces of the lv and loaders decompressed in memory. But who gives the order to clean? The lv1, so it is playable in an exploitable version!

To solve the problem, you need to make a lv1 modified to copy the area of ​​interest, the memory of LV0 and put it somewhere else, to then remove it, thereupon continue its routine cleaning and mapping. Thus, we have the memory LV0 safe. And so the LV0 gets exposed to everything.

From there, we have the appldr, which needs to be decrypted with the LV0, and with that we have "keystore".

Well, it's so simple to discover the keys? I do not think so

Exactly, it's not a tutorial, lol.

This would probably help a PS3 developer though.

They only released an overview of how it could be possible to obtain the 3.60 keys - there's no need for the question as to whether it's "fake" or not because it is a method, which either works or doesn't.

My guess is that it will work, and that it will take some time to implement or before any result is seen.

Most of us just want to be able to play new games and don't want to lose our backups.. all I just want is to customize my PS3 and the ability to back up my games to my hard drive..

We all know that a new CFW will come out evantualy.. but there are some people in the scene who are stagnating the process.. and thats the main reason most people don't like certain devs in the ring..

Not to mention the wrath of $ony!

Saviour is right. It will come, if and when it comes. People have no business whining about a new CFW. We're lucky we have what we have! Well, some of you... I have only 1 PS3 in the house and it was upgraded by mistake. I can't wait to get a CFW or an E3 etc, so I can downgrade LOL

A lot of people don't like Math because of this very reason, he doesn't share any information he has with anyone else. Some don't like him because he allegedly releases other peoples work and doesn't credit them/passes it off as his own.

Others don't like him because he's annoying and says "I know how to do x/y/z" but doesn't say how, or releases redundant information as if to say "I knew that information months ago".

I don't like him because he likes to think his e-peen is as big as the dick that we all know he really is Best of all he always takes a moral high-stance on piracy and uses that as his excuse as to why he doesn't contribute to the scene.

Agreed! DH and the guys he works with deserve a lot of appreciation and people need to understand that the stuff they are doing is NOT easy, NOT cheap and most of all it is NOT quick to implement!

A new CFW may arrive because of the hard work and effort these guys are putting in, and people need to learn to be patient with these developments.
