Lamers Have PS3 HDD Decrypted Tutorial, Sony Now Knows!


Sponsored Links
316w ago - This working of knightsolidus with me was supposed to be private, but now DemonHades leaked it and then Pirate (Shazim Mohammad) posted it like a fool before work was done. We try to control it by put fake but now is too late -- THANKS FOR NOTHING GUYS!

This part is also lie, it was NOT EVER brought to public attention by knightsolidus: "knightsolidus stumbled upon this during his research and brought it to the public's attention."

He ask them to remove it from their page, they did not respect and post it more like basters!

Regard to SKFU, he is right in some parts.. I was excited of seeing new files, until I find they were only from debug like CJPC said already. Also, is true so far we only remove the HDD crypt so this not much help until file crypt is beaten.

All this is truth also of SKFU: You get a few sprx, rco and xml files, possible a few more types but those are useless unless you can remove the encryption of the file itself. But you can't yet. So the only thing you can do for example is getting the firmware part which is on the HDD.

But these are only UNPACKED files, NOT DECRYPTED files. You may be able to replace several firmware files ye, so if replacing some text in the XMB or an icon is a custom firmware for you, have fun with the knowledge that this may brick your PS3 and is useless as hell.

Last, from now on knightsolidus work no more with them to stop such leakings from happen again.

NDT ;-)

Why don't you guys try to get the partition table? It gives alot of info about partitions and filesystems. You can try to format the HDD and dump the partition table. Then, reformat the drive, create the OtherOS partition and redump the partition table. With this you may have something to look at...

ahh yes... but, does anyone remember the inside drama of the HDLoader for the PS2?

Boss, is there any news on this one? I am hanging on IRC as much as I can but still nothing. I do not want to be impatient - just asking.

RexVF5 did you manage to get the data you were looking for?

I spoke with NDT today about this, and he said to tell you to contact him on IRC and he will pass some along for you and your friend to examine.

If you join EFnet, just /msg CJPC and he will direct you to NDT there.

Sure. What I was asking about is if such data pair (encrypted + decrypted) is readily available for others to look at. Currently I do not have appropriate equipment to do this myself - that's why I am asking so that I could relay the data to the smart guy dealing with encryption. For what I know that would be a challenge for him to try to find out what the encryption is (for example the level of compressibility can tell you interesting stuff about cipher strength).

In my opinion it would be highly interesting to have first dozen of sectors of PS3 partition decrypted - it would tell us something about what kind of filesystem is being used...

I work with guy who is a mathematician dealing with cryptography so he might have some clue as how to proceed.
