October 26, 2012 // 12:02 am - Similar to Shark Week, this appears to be PS3 Key week with the latest additions being the PS3 3.70 Appldr (VSH.elf) Keys surfacing while a list of the PlayStation 3 version 3.65 to 4.30 Appldr Keys in SCETool format is also in development.

Download: PS3 3.70 Appldr Keys (VSH.elf) Decrypted by ItsKamel / PS3 3.70 Appldr Keys (VSH.elf) Decrypted (Mirror) / PS3 3.70 Appldr Keys (Mirror #2) / PS3 3.70 Appldr Keys (Mirror #3) / PS3 4.25 Keys by razorx / PS3 lv0 key + 3.60 + 3.70 key by Mistawes / Battlefield 3 EBOOT Decrypted by lewy20041 / Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City (REORC) Decrypted by windrider (Password: SupLeechers) / multiMAN 3.70 [EBOOT_FIX] by slarty1408

This adds to the recent PS3 LV0 (Bootldr) Keys leak, the PS3 4.25 / 4.30 Decrypted APPLDR Keys, the PS3 LV0 and Encapsulated CEX 4.30 Loaders, the PS3 4.21 LV1 and lv2_dump from 4.21 acquired by zadow28 when the Sycall table was found at offset 0x346390, the PS3 LV0 4.25 / LV2 4.25 / LV0 4.30 dumps decrypted and the PS3 4.25 Keys for MFW Builder.

Today's update begins with dosjuanes posting the PS3 3.70 Appldr Keys on Spanish site Elotrolado (linked above), followed by Chinese hacker Luckystar (via developing a PS3 Appldr Keys 3.65 to 4.30 list in SCETool format as outlined below.

From dosjuanes on the PS3 3.70 Appldr Keys, roughly translated:

From razorx: Here's the .ps3 keys i've put together (linked above) for you all just extract the zip into your .ps3 folder and your done the zip contains:

  • lv0-ctype-425
  • lv0-iv-425
  • lv0-key-425
  • lv0-priv-425
  • lv0-pub-425

From slarty1408: Hi ppl, Just thought i'd add the 3.70 keys to deank's multiMAN[EBOOT_FIX] tool (linked above) so you can fix your own eboots/games. i will add more keys as i get hold them... I have only only tested it with 1 game by the way so any feed back would be great.

From cory1492: None of the keys are decrypted. The ERK/RIV of all keys (app/npdrm/spp) in the raw decrypted appldr are decrypted before use by appldr at runtime. Look at the working 3.70 posted earlier (or any of the previous keys) pub and search it out.

From Luckystar comes a PS3 3.65-4.30 Appldr Keys WIP, roughly translated: Appldr 4.30

The extracted from appldr 4.3 from 000248A0-000260F0. The PUB is right. erk and riv incorrect. The estimated or anergistic, send a sce header to the ok.

From aldostools on Mistawes keys dump (above): 1. make sure you have this added to keys file:

2. make sure that the key revision of your SELF is 0x0016 and that it is not a NPDRM self.

I tested the keys with Saints Row The Third, and it decrypted the ELF... shift+Enter.

[Register or Login to view code]

Key Revision [DEBUG] means that your file is a FSELF. You just need to unfself it and sign the ELF with the keys that you want (eg. 0x01)

These 3.70-3.73 keys are just for retail SELF files signed with keys 0x0016. SELF files from PKG use NPDRM keys (unless they are custom made PKG created using make_package_npdrm). Yes... there used to be a tool that resigned your FSELF just pressing Ctrl+Enter on the eboot.

The current "3.70 keys" are only for key revision 0x0016 and self type = APP (retail eboot). If you have an "update/patch" eboot 3.70, it will not be decrypted with these keys, because they are self type = NPDRM and use a different key. Key revision 0x0016 is used by apps signed for 3.70, 3.72, 3.73 and 3.74.

Most of these have been confirmed by users including EussNL and ItsKamel and added to the PS3 wiki here: As always, we will update this article as new PlayStation 3 Keys are discovered and posted publicly.

So you guys are believing it? If the guy was so anxious to get it out there, it would have already been uploaded. Pretty sure the person knows how to upload to one of hundreds of file hosting sites, as was mentioned. It's been over an hour since they said "I have the file(s) necessary for installing CFW of 3.56+ OFW!!!" Sorry, but I don't buy it.

Yeah these days most people just use free file-sharing sites, especially for larger files... I usually use which uploads to a bunch of others automatically but almost of them any will do the trick as something like this would be remirrored a thousand times anyway.

That would be excellent, but I'm sure you understand the skepticism when it's coming from someone who just joined the site today, whose first post is stating you have the thing everyone has been waiting for to make CFW over 3.56+ OFW possible, but in an hour since posting have yet to upload said file... not to mention that I don't really believe that a "PS3 Scener" would need to ask HOW to upload a file in the first place. If I'm wrong, then I'm wrong. But like I said, I'm sure you understand.

i can send you the files but i wont say where i got them from... only one private key needs to be calcuated , and it needs to be signed and decrypted properly to avoid bricking installing on ofw 4.30
