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.

How about Math just release the keys as he said he has them. Oh, he's a prick, I forgot...

If I knew how to get the keys I would release them.

If he gives the keys to anyone and they release it without saying where they got it from then all would be good. Sony cant sue someone if they don't know where it came from. I will gladly release it anonymously or with my name as I'm not afraid of Sony.

Nobody will go to jail over releasing the keys. The lawsuits are over. Sony isn't going to sue the person who releases the keys. IF they will then send the keys to me. I'd like to see them try and sue me for it.

There are enough people that will gladly release the keys, so there is no reason why he's holding them back from us unless he is either a liar or a real prick and wont release them coz he cant get the fame. We need someone like Graf and me who aren't afraid of Sony and will continue the work no matter what.

It's about time we forget about this loser Math and find a new dev that will actually help the scene.

That's enough from me about this. I'm not going to keep going on and on about Math or as I now name him "King Fake" as he releases nothing but says he has everything. He is the biggest fake in the PS3 scene. There you go Math, you are now on top and have a crown. King of the fakes. Yeah! lets hear it for Math!

In regards to PS3 stuff, Mathieulh was involved in several projects (PSGroove being one example as medi01 mentioned above) but releasing such things was usually a group effort rather than a solo "Mathieulh" release.

However, he did release one thing on his own I'm aware of which was the PSP / PS3 PKG Decrypter and Extractor v.

Anyway, he already said he wouldn't release anything else meaning we should probably focus on other developers resuming work from here or waiting for another 'leak' to surface rather than spending time dwelling on Mathieulh.

He was one of the guys who reversed "the original, 100% original, superduper original, don't buy it from anyone else for 25$, buy it from us, greedy mf'ers for 150$" jailbreak.

He acts as both drama queen and attention whore, but I can understand why he isn't directly releasing anything. Look at what happened to geohot or graf.

Hopefully this super duper knowledge will be leaked to devs who don't care soon. If I got 404 right, "how to do it" is clear. (please correct me if I'm wrong)

Has he ever released something? I only know him as the guy who says he has everything, but never releases anything. This makes him either a liar (because he has nothing), or a bully (because he dangles it in front of your nose but he won't release it because he's afraid or a sociopath).

Didn't it start a few years ago with the PSP and him promising a lot but never delivering anything?
