168w ago - Following up on the previous update, this weekend PlayStation 3 homebrew development group DexL0ve have made available a PS3 patched DEX LV2_Kernel.Self for CEX consoles followed by a revision below that fixes PS3 crashing issues.

Download: PS3 Patched DEX LV2_Kernel.Self for CEX Consoles / PS3 Patched DEX LV2_Kernel.Self for CEX Consoles (Mirror) / PS3 Patched DEX LV2_Kernel.Self for CEX Consoles (Fixed)

Essentially this PKG release is a patched LV2 DEX (Debug / Test) kernel for CEX (Retail) PS3 consoles based on the recent LV2 Loader release.

To quote: From my limited understanding of PS3 coding and reading the NFO file, that by using the LV2_Loader released by Team Rebug earlier, and by QA flag'ing your CEX machine, this file is basically a patched LV2 DEX kernel that will load fully on your CEX machine and thereby give you some DEX (aka) TEST machine L0VE on your Jailbroken PS3 Console.

From Cyberskunk: Syscall 8, 9, 10 are broken in this lv2_kernel.self. The patch for 3.55 CEX lv2 has been used which ends up point to the wrong offset. The kernel will still work but if an app calls those syscalls the PS3 will crash. Hopefully it was just a mistake and they will fix it..

Finally, from the included PS3 NFO File:

are you sure about this? THE JIG ?? with the JIG as yous aid we have seen NOTHING ABOUT... and now if my memory don't trick me the first "HELLO WORLD" was from GEOHOT (maybe not alone) but anyway he show to the world how to catch the problem and TO BE CORRECT he altered the hardware with a specified impulse to motherboard for exploit Hypervisor and metldr.

Don't forget "HELLO HYPERVISOR I'M GEOHOT" so alone or not alone the first one was him and of course congratulation to graf and other because they are great and helpful people probably without him\them no one had seen something about and about sure the fact that the PS3 is different from 360 is true but anyway without touch the hardware you will go nowhere, so different or not... this is

sorry for [OT]...

Don't compare the 360 with the ps3. There are huge diffrents. Two off them are metldr and bootloader. Bootloader is console, version and hardware specific and have high abbilitie to exploit the whole system.

Why you want to exploit the hardware when it allready is unofficial done ??

You may don't know but in underground bootloader allready hase fallen and exploitet but it hasen't found the way to the puplic and i don't know why they dono release it. But to come to the point of this post: PS3 is diff to 360

Oh and to correct, the first reall useable hack/jailbreak was the JIG and the JIG is a service device by sony so what exactly you mean with geohot and breaking the security ? If you ask me then the graf aka grafchokolo have done much, much more for the whole scene and breaking the ps3 securitys then egohot.

Hello Bartholomy, I'm really impressive on how many people say that a new cfw is impossible... in the past... before Geohot break the PS3 security anywone was saying that too.

People must keep in mind that is impossible probably via software (and here no doubt about...) but NOT via hardware.. have already present that hardware do what you want to do.

For example look at xbox 360 do you think that you can break it via software ? just plug a usb key and you will see xbox360 at your knee launch unsigned code ?

you can SIMPLY forget it... but they show to everyone that via hardware is the way to go... same is PS3 forget to break it via software is a LONG WAY FULL OF PROBLEMS (ECDSA) and probably you will go nowhere.

It exists someone that broke security of PS3 and XBOX360 via software without touch the hardware ? the answer is simply not!

They are within the SDK and have a additional .001 after the fw version like .400.001

if you are someday back on msn show me those downgraders plz I used the dex fw from this overview (ps3devwiki.com/wiki/System_Software) and I never seen there an other downgrader as the 3.55 my friend.

So i can compare them with the dex fw i got for those fw versions

They are already public. But it seems that most users even don't know how a special downgrader pup will be called and where they are included.

And to correct myself it's not a 3.72 SDG (how they called it) it's a 3.74.

Or it is in case of QA Flag and if the flag is set you can downgrade without the special downgrader fw. But in case sony changed the offset of the flag on 3.60 we need to use the special downgrader pup on 3.60 again to go down too 3.55 and below.

Sir, if you have 3.60 or 3.72 special downgrade so why don't you release it public!

As djpelle and cfwprophet already said, you can do all tests you want without problems.

As djpelle said, you should use downgrader dex fw only for 3.55 or lower fw.
