February 4, 2012 // 5:04 am - Following up on the previous update, this weekend Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Calantra has released a homebrew application to find PS3 Keys dubbed Lv0 Assault followed by updated versions below.

Download: PS3 Lv0 Assault v1.0 / PS3 Lv0 Assault v1.1 / PS3 Lv0 Assault v1.2 / qtintf.dll (Required)

To quote, roughly translated: LV0 assault is an application that uses the contents of any file type to search for valid cryptographic keys to decrypt files encrypted with keys LV0 metldr * or *.

What it does:

The operation of this program is not based on the use of the techniques of "brute force" is limited to just keep trying all possible keys of 32 bytes that can be found in a file.

We can get:

If by chance the key LV0 appear in theory you could decrypt the file LV0 content updates and versions higher than 3.56 contain changes which in turn contain the long-awaited keys.

That does not do:

  • It is used to decrypt any file type.
  • It serves to create any CFW.
  • There used to play GT5 and to play for PSN.

Notes:

If we find the key delv0 ideally, the most dense file-level data as possible, these files are those that are compressed or encrypted. It is also very useful for finding keys if you have memory dumps from the localstore.

It should be clear that it is extremely difficult and unlikely to get the key LV0 by this method, but it's better than sitting in front of the screen waiting for the prophet down the mountain with the solution to your problems. The more people looking the better.

This program is experimental and is based on a complete utility that I used some time to locate and catalog keys. There are more explanations in the file "readme" that comes with the program and contact addresses.

How to use:

Click on menu "search for" select the lv0 to find lv0 key, metldr to find metldr key.

Thanks to:

Al the ps3devwiki contributors, Team Fail0verflow, Kakarotoks, at all of them for share their knowledges

Last of all, execuse me a lot for my bad english.

Regards, Calantra.

Waninkoko's back.. lol the race to hack 3.6+ f.w is on.

From twitter.com/#!/hackingblack:

hackingblack: Just discovered the 3.60+ app keys on this JB2 dongle IRC user Falcon donated to me.

hackingblack: Isn't releasing things anonymously just great?

hackingblack: My cfw requires no dongle.

Only issue with that statement is what do the new want to be JB're do ? you can only JB consoles 3.55 or less. that means that is an always decreasing supply of those. a new exploit would allow newer consoles to be JB'n. And then they can decide if you want to stick to 3.73 or 3.55 or what ever version you so love

And secondly, just for the thrill of achieving the unattainable.. raising the bar.

But please don't please crib out of ignorance.

I'll come when the title says something like: "New 3.73 CFW Released!" or "Keys to decrypt/sign Eboots released!", something which may happen in a year.
CFW maybe never. Something working, maybe Surely not games, now.

no need for new CFW IMO, just release keys for 3.6+,3.7+ games and everyone is happy.

Why do we need new CFW, if current works with decrypted 3.73 eboots just fine? (and one could even add "decrypt" feature directly to BMs, for lazy people, the way it works now with permissions)

So the new "unhackable" console can be hacked, but only if we had the keys, which can be obtained by using math's method, a method he refuses to share. So basically sony only patched a little in the new console so all we know is that it is hackable. But anyone knows anything can be hacked into eventually, so does this news really bring us closer of cfw 3.73?

Would be a nice xmas gift for devs to release such a thing, but we probably have a better chance of finding a lump of coal under the tree.
