February 4, 2012 // 4:04 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.


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.

My god what drama this scene generates! Now i'm not going to slate Math or anyone who hasn't released stuff for the PS3. They have their reasons. I understand people's frustrations that they want to play newer games without updating (Not all of us are pirates in this world!).

If I knew a damn thing about how the PS3 worked and had a damn clue where to start with all this info I would give it a go and try and make something happen with my PS3. Unfortunately like a lot of people here I have no clue. I am waiting for another dev to step up, who can remain anonymous and release some good stuff so I can go back to playing the latest games and keeping emulators.

Uhm, no. It's slow, it's under control of Dev elite, it's a mirage. Just don't lose the hope some of them will just release something as anonymous again. Be ready to see a Math post about how trash is the scene, and full of traitors obiouvsly, if happens

Where, sorry.

Ok Ladies & Gents & all the others... Here's my 2 cents to the scene :

Hold to your chairs.... I know from a pretty good source that the team behind the recent discovery of the 3.6+ keys is a team by the name A.I.A. and the main coder in the team is... you won't believe it... his name is : Karl Pilkington

That's right . I couldn't believe myself but its already confirmed in the ususal IRC/tweet/forum scene by his fellow mates in the team Ricky and Steve. Well and they've already released the keys to the public, so lets catch them

He cant, he doesn't have it.

look at every time some thing is hinted at being possible, he comes along and says "yes its possible i have done it, but i wont tell you as it could lead to piracy" (even in the case of things like QA flagging that doesnt even lead to us using our retail copies let alone piracy)

then when something comes out iits always "yep thats the method i used months ago" or if something is released with out hints to it prior "I knew this method and told others it im disapointed they leaked it" its growing old fast. the ps3 scene is dead we have to admit it so many false hopes.

but qa flaging!! nope leads nowhere, demon guys new firmware allows new games to run!! wasnt that due for release in october? oh well. dual nands!! ok that sounds cool but what happened to it? true blue!! nope it uses debug eboots metldr exploit!!! that apparently is old news and of no use but i seen this video on youtube!!! its fake... and on and on and on. face it guys time to go to ofw, sony win we lose.

oh and i'm sure some one will say "you have to decide between homebrew + linux or games its one or the other as it should be update to 3.21 for the latest games or stay back for other os"... oh sorry no that was when sony did that and everyone was in an outrage... i mean some one will say "you have to decide between homebrew + linux or games its one or the other as it should be update to 3.73 for the latest games or stay back for other os"
