204w ago - 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.

Download: PS3 Ed2.pdf / PS3 Ed2.pdf (Mirror) / PS3 Ed2.pdf (Mirror #2) / PS3 Ed2.pdf (Mirror #3) / PS3 Ed2.pdf (Mirror #4) / PS3 Ed2.pdf (Mirror #5) / PS3 Ed2.pdf (Mirror #6)

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.

Not this again.. *Sigh*

It's fake, these fake keys have going around the internet for like over a month. It doesn't take many brain cells to write up fake keys then claiming it to be the 3.60 Keys.

You know why modchips take time to research? Because its not as easy as throwing a switch, some flash memory, and a resistor on it and calling it a day. Anyone could have looked up the public datasheets for the flash memory 5 years ago and done this. Wanna know why they didn't? Because its dumb and it won't work.

Indeed but surely in the real application you'd use more complex circuit - at leas some additional capacitors or logic flip circuit controlled by pushbutton with LED indication etc. etc. etc.

Also - in regards of various FWs on hard drive - if anyone would go through all the troubles piggybacking the flash they can also have two hardrives and switch those (most probably only while powered off) also by a "switch" ...

I think its alright to kill a ps3 or two for the sake of the greater good.

Wow... Does anyone have knowledge of circuits? You CANNOT do a NAND or NOR dump while the console is in operation using hardware. It requires the console be off and unplugged and doing so while on could seriously damage (if not immediately fry) your ps3.

We know for a fact that there is a hole in that is possible to find by reversing how the spus work. Why can't we just get a couple of talented devs, who know how to reverse focused there instead?

The only real use i see in this is just to obtain the 3.61+ keys in order to boot newer games under some cfw ... be it a cfw or a mfw. Joe Shmo won't want to do this solution considering how involved it is. In fact ... since you have to ruin a ps3 (or find a bricked one) to even do this ... why not just keep one on ofw and one on cfw ?

If this aids in getting new fw keys and if all of the offsets are patched during boot-time ... then we might have very completely pwnd the system ... considering someone actually goes through the lv0 flash to get the new keys (every time a new ofw is released).

Either way ... seems much simpler to perform on a fat than a slim. I hope to see a 3.61 flash somewhere in the wild within a few days.

Is a software hack still going to be available for 3.6 or is it going to require an external hardware device?

Hooray some more progress! Now just disappear before Sony finds you!

But its great to see some more progress towards the 3.6x firmwares.

Really something to look forward to especially for this upcoming psp remaster thingies.
