May 23, 2011 // 1:41 pm - Today anonymous PS3 hackers who call themselves No_One have released a Dual Firmware PDF document that may bring 3.6x+ Key Decryption and new CFW to Custom Firmware fans.

To quote: 05/23/2011 For Immediate Release: The beginning of dual-firmware PS3: PS3_Ed2.pdf The technique outlined in the .PDF will help people learn more about 3.6x firmwares.

The solution relies on the implementation of a second NOR/NAND Flash. Some technical limitations have been identified. But time will help us to remove them.

The information in the document is still theoretical for the moment, however please post results from your testing.

We believe knowledge and information wants to be free. Learn what you can and help contribute to making the PS3 scene a better place. Released by No_One.

It's fake dude. Next time you find keys like these copy and paste them in google, you will see at least 1 thread (from any PS3 hacking site) with a person who has already asked if it was real.

I didn't realize the whole duel booting would lead to finding the keys. But if it does I think that is amazing. And as for the final stages to that project I am excited about it.

Here is another PNM Project Update from No_One stating that it is now in the final stages, with both NOR flash sockets now working and soon a full tutorial on how to use PNM to find currently unknown v3.60+ keys on newer PS3 firmware versions.

To quote:

Hi mates,

I wanted to announce that PNM project has entered its last stage. PNM is now wired to the motherboard of a SLIM PS3 : DYN-001.

The first results are fine. PNM is correctly powered by the PS3 itself. Much better, PNM is now capable to power on/off automatically the PS3.

Firmware is choosen using a jumper. Here is how it will work (very soon):

  • remove the power cable
  • place the jumper to choose Firmware #1 or Firmware #2
  • connect the power cable

And then the PS3 starts automatically without human interaction. Let me clarify some points read here and there.

I never promised the 3.6+ public keys! I just said that PNM will allow to find them nothing else.

This project is a hobby. I work as fast as I can. Please stop the lame remarks concerning the delay!

I will come back soon with the final video demonstration.

It allows the end user to have official firmware for online play and use while maintaining the ability to have custom firmware for linux and homebrew.

This is pretty much what we've all been waiting for, well, at least half of it. A dual boot to use OFW access PSN (I'd sure like to get that stuff I already paid for!) and an updated custom firmware to run backups to cut the load times... that and be lazy and not have to switch the disc. I don't suppose he's ever given a rough estimate of when he'll be done?
