September 12, 2011 // 3:20 pm - 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

Sorry to say but what kind of guy is this Math anyway?!? I really doubt he is a nice helpful patronising guy in real life... to have CFW keys and PSN would be superb but why didn't he share it ?

We only can hope DH is mor giving and will share the keys with us for 3.6x and 3.7x

If he says no PSN because of cheating that's OK.

But hope dies last , wow we have no new keys for over 9 month. I really understand now why most other scenes only smile over the PS3 scene.

Just some quotes:

DemonHades:
Hi, first... that no is a tutorial, is a aclaration for the people say "posible cfw 37x and bla bla"

Explain at little words "no is easy"

Other think,that don't is the same mathieulh (destroy and laught scene) how for example it..

Mathieulh:
Since this is now obsolete I guess I can share it : X-Platform-Passphrase c4ce4023bd7e0345feeb0dca80caf487a03b4545a8230a5d41 fe9855 For 3.60

That man is stupid? want a trophy to the more retard? laught all people show a video and now publish a obsolete pass and nothing say nothing.

Well,we method is using sockets ram and using the jfw (have hacked system signatures at lv`s) put dump the ram, is false needed a dual nand for dump the keys (it want that retard you mind, for no advance at hack 360), but with a exploitable fw how 341, put build a basic lv1, what only dump the region on uncompress bld,lv0(appldr signed yes,but unpacket lv0)

We method is different, no use dual flash...use or 2 ps3 or socket switch ram.

1saludo,and now put continue applause that man and flaming me... and i wait respect at that community diff how is a "aclaration" and "hype"

EvilS0uL:
Why did we done this technical tutorial ?

The answer is simple. I want everyone to know that GETTING THE DAMN APP KEYS IS NOT EASY, BECAUSE I STILL CAN HEAR BS COMMENTS THAT GETTING THE APP KEYS IS EASY AS HELL AND IF "THE DEVELOPERS WORKED HARD ENOUGH, WE WOULD BE ALREADY IN CFW 3.70".

Regards,
S0ul, from DemonHades

Correct, you can add more keys to the appldr keytable (just like Sony do when they update their firmware).

This would allow you to decrypt (read: play) 3.6x games on 3.55 CFW.

What the keys do not allow you to do is create a 3.6x+ CFW.

When the keys are discovered can't they just be implemented into say Kmeaw 3.55? Or would the firmware have to be started from scratch?
