System Software (GUI)

The update data for debugging station has been updated at the same timing as the release of the system software 4.46. This update does not affect titles. Also, there is no change in the system software GUI.

Known Issues/Restrictions

Check menu in the Game column - Validation of a media or the file system itself cannot be performed from the Check menu in the Game column.

- When submitting a master disc, make sure to verify the disc that no error is present using the Disc Image Generator for PlayStation(R)3 or the Disc Image Checker for PlayStation(R)3.

- When performing the check from the Check menu in the Game column, if the number of result files exceeds approximately 80 to 100 depending on each check item, the file entries of the root directory in the USB mass storage run out and the subsequent check result files may no longer be stored. In such case, move the check result files to another directory.

Notes

Release 096.002

This package includes the system software update data for PLAYSTATION(R)3 debugging station. This update data corresponds to SDK 096.002.

Please update the flash memory with a file included in this package. Instructions for the update is the same as an update for a reference tool.

The following storage media can be used.

  • A Memory Stick PRO(TM) or a Memory Stick PRO Duo(TM), with a
    capacity of at least 256 MB
  • A USB mass-storage device with a capacity of at least 256 MB, which can be connected to any of the USB connectors on the Reference Tool
  • A CompactFlash(R), with a capacity of at least 256 MB
  • A SD memory card or miniSD memory card, with a capacity of at least 256 MB

Perform the following steps on the host computer:

  • Make a directory named PS3 in the root directory of the storage medium, and then make a sub-directory UPDATE in it.
  • Copy the update data to the created /PS3/UPDATE/ directory in the medium.
  • Remove the ".NNN.0xx" portion from the file name (to rename it to PS3UPDAT.PUP).

Insert the storage medium that contains the update data, and then select and launch the "System Update" in the GUI menu. Select "Update via Storage Media" for "Select an update method". Follow the instructions shown on the screen from then on.

Finally, part of the PS3 SDK 4.40.001 (110 MB) has also been leaked (linked above) with details below, as follows:

SDK440 Environment Setting

Once the package is expanded, the software for the communication processor must be updated first. Please refer to "Reference Tool Software Setup Guide" for the detailed updating procedure, and please note the following points when updating.

- If you are using the environment of SDK100 or before, please write the Flash Memory with the ebootrom included in SDK100 first.

- Please note that the operation of when updated directly from the environment of SDK100 or before to SDK440 is not guaranteed.

From haz367: A 3.65/metldr1 stuck in FSM can be exited by using the MLT4.31 COREOS for downgrade.

This is a good news and good leak, but it will help developers only since the DCER consoles is not available for every one

Following up on the PS3 DEX (DECH) 4.55 OFW Test / Debug update, today xxmcvapourxx made available PS3 DECR (Reference Tool) OFW Update 4.60 with more updates and details below.

Download: PS3DECRUpdateData.460.001.zip (152.7 MB) / ebootrom.7z (230.3 MB - EBOOTROMs with 0x40 byte header for Prototype / DECR systems) by zecoxao via BobbyBangin / E/rxxx Ebootrom Decrypter Python Script (CEB Ebootrom Decrypter) / decr_cp_toolchain.7z by flatz via zecoxao

Note: DO NOT INSTALL ON FAKE DEX ONLY REAL DECR CONSOLES, WAIT TILL SOMEONE BUILDS A CFW SO YOU CAN INSTALL ON FAKE DEX.

Credits: My good buddy who I wont mention thank you.

From the included ReadMe File: PS3UPDAT.PUP.460.001

Finally, from zecoxao: Looks like the 2_I is covered with symbols on the elfs. Nice

E/rxxx Ebootrom Decrypter Python Script by flatz

This script allows you to decrypt E/rXXX ebootroms: http://pastie.org/private/al9p0vkw3g0lgat2yeazw#4,11

Thanks:

It's here in form of release. Ebootroms are in the same format as pups.. there are a lot of types of ebootroms. This script can decrypt the external ones.. eboots are just selfs.

PS3 DECR CP Toolchain by flatz via zecoxao (linked above)

Flatz has released a toolchain that allows building elfs on DECR cp and let's you use them

Don't forget to set the path:

and to fix the relative path errors with subst: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb491006.aspx

It requires cygwin.

BIG NOTE: for the samples to work they MUST have the .elf extension at compile time, or else THEY WON'T WORK.

Update: Also below from zecoxao is a PS3 DECR 3.41 PUP with Peek & Poke and more with details as follows:

Download: PEEK_POKE.PUP (129.0 MB) / Proof / More Dumps / RootKey (works on eEID, so it's valid now for HDD dumps) / EIDROOT.7z (rootkey dumper, packed with 3.41 cex root key dumper for DECR) / DECR_MFW355.PUP / LV1 / LV2 Dumps / backup_srk_srh.bin

After trying to convince 3absiso to install this PUP on his DECR, he finally did so after downgrading today. and he can now dump the NAND, dump lv1 and dump lv2, which will let us discover more about the DECR itself.

This is a plain old DECR Peek&Poke 3.41 mfw made with mfw builder. anybody is welcome to use it. and i'm glad good old mfwbuilder works just as fine for DECR PUPs

Just a note, it has included lv1 and lv2 peek and poke.

As always, it's important to note that these PS3 Debug / TEST updates will currently NOT install on a retail PS3, and so it is intended for examination and comparison purposes only unless you own a Dev unit.

For those curious, running this updater on a retail PS3 will not damage it, however, it will give the following error before the installation completes: The data type is not supported. (8002F029)

Any news on the 4.5 update? It surprised me that it came right as R* released the GTA Online gameplay.
