April 2, 2010 // 7:44 pm - Update: JaicraB has now shared a second (36MB) dump and update, details and the download link are available HERE and the guide is being worked on!

Today JaicraB (linked above) with the help of DemonHades have done what GeoHot failed to do, dump and publicly leak the PS3 Hypervisor LV2 (GameOS) for the entire PS3 scene to begin reversing and examining for new holes, exploits, etc!

But wait, there's more... they also plan to share a guide soon detailing how the LV2 dump was done (see HERE for the LV1 dump leak) so that everyone in the PlayStation 3 development community can join in on the fun!

This is indeed refreshing news in comparison to a lone glory hound out only for himself instead of the PS3 scene, seeking attention while blinded by his own e-fame from the notion that others in the community are just as capable, if not moreso, as will surely be demonstrated in coming months.

BIG PROPS to both JaicraB and DemonHades, you guys deserve it and we are honored to see your willingness to share with everyone to further PS3 development. You truly are shining examples of what the scene is all about, and you will be remembered for this.

Download: PS3 Hypervisor LV2 (GameOS) Dump [48.0MB (50,331,648 bytes)] / PS3 Hypervisor LV2 (GameOS) Dump [35.2MB (37,000,000 bytes)]

To quote, roughly translated: "DHorg friends because that is in luck, and I DemonHades and JaicraB we have dump the LV2 (supervisor) thereby obtaining ps3 kernel very soon we detailed the dump.

Jaicrab a pleasure working with you friend.

Best to all! A week ago I started to dismount for the first time a PS3 and install Linux without any experience. My only goal was to teach people to change the cooling of a PS3. Gradually I was calling attention to the world of SCENE and a week I give the LV2.

This concludes a long afternoon with only one thought. DemonHades Thanks for sharing your experience with me and spend the whole evening with me and discuss check for teaching me everything you know in two hours. The truth is that without DemonHades would have been almost impossible. A great and wise person.

After an entire afternoon leading a project in mind, we could dump the LV2. We had read access of the last session before entering XMB Other.

I promised. It will explain the method to follow if you want to do you the same. Enjoy it!

Next step? The next step is Inmagine. First of all tomorrow if I can I will explain the process of how to do it.

It is not a simple dump LV2, but a dump of the entire session previously opened in XMB. What you need to debug the dump way to make things not to mix the session Other and so we can analyze everything that we run in XMB.

This dump was made with an upper size LV2, which contains trash otheros session mixed with XMB. The LV2 area is intact, are the first 36 megabytes, which is lv0, LV1, LV2.

You open a door and you find 50 more, each new door you can open 50 more doors. Choose your path to investigate and share it with everyone."

Finally, pictured below is the IDA Pro SPU processor module in action!

They wouldn't mention it if it was a big deal. it's most likely a very pointless and harmless security problem.

Nice, though I think for now it's just about opening those 50^50 doors

Can anyone tell if this is of any signifigance for SLIM owners?

here is some thing interesting perhaps something that should be looked into?

"A security patch was added to address security vulnerabilities that may occur when playing MP4 format video files."


my only question is why tell us about a security vulnerability when thay know we're hot on there trail and thousands of people held off the update because of all the latest finds and dumps on there system...

perhaps something like the Tiff exploit?

if so if i recall corectly the tiff exploit allowed us to load games that were forcing us to update firmware something like this would be of major significance to those of us holding off on FW updates awaiting to see what happens in the scene.

This is AMAZING!!! I hope that this will enable the creation of other OS on the slim, to encourage development and experimentation! (and more than 10gb hdd space)

I can't seem to extract the files from that second dump getting the following errors:

! J:\Documents and Settings\admin\Desktop\ Unknown method in lv0lv1lv2_2.bin
! J:\Documents and Settings\admin\Desktop\ No files to extract

either way keep up the dumps sony has dicked with us for the last time its time to show them us the consumer are the ones that are boss not them.

i'm just hoping what ever hack method comes up won't include opening my system or soldering anything thatll be really disappointing but what ever it takes to stick it to the man.
