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!

If mathieulh thinks we won't find anything useful in this dump, he could share his godly aryan master race dump with us...

Would be interesting to get a dump from a debug console, to compare and to know from where the fw updater knows that die update isn't for retail. Or is it already known ?!?

Haha, now that's becoming interesting!

Guess who will need to release his info if he wants the kudos for it. If he does not release information, he will need to fear that somebody else gets the honor for the same work.

Well i think its Mathieulh habit you know as now hes calling garbage to other people's hard work. tell me guys did you ever see any contribtion in PS3 scene from Mathieulh? at least i haven't seen any till yet.

Mathieulh is surely jealous with JaicraB and DemonHades bcz they have done something for the scene they have successfully dumped the lvl2 and leave it, if they didn't dump it cleanly or completely but at least they have shared it with public/scene which Mathieulh have failed to do.

I do believe that warm boot attack was used to dump LV2. Now since some of the XMB content was overwritten by Linux, that means a more minimalist Linux is needed.

I mean the smallest Linux distro with Cell support will do the job better right?

i think someone who can do this dump (i can't do) should try to update the retail ps3 to debug update and then see where he gets the error so after that he should dump the level2 immediately and find out what did ps3 look for when its updating before gets the error.
