Today CJPC has assisted blackb0x with their latest release, dubbed PS3 LV2Dump v0.7a which enables PSGroove users to finally dump the PS3 LV2 GameOS for examination!

Download: PS3 LV2Dump v0.7a

Previously JaicraB with TeamHades dumped the PS3 hypervisor LV2 (GameOS) and revealed how it was done, however, the dump was not clean and so work resumed until today.

To quote from the included ReadMe file: "This application will dump all accessible LV2 memory on a jailbroken retail PS3.

To run this app, place lv2dump_07a.pkg on a usb memory stick. Install the pkg. Then run LV2Dump from the XMB. It should run for approximately 20-30 seconds, then it will exit back to the XMB. There will now be a file named LV2.BIN in the folder /dev_hdd0/game/




You can access your dump by copying the file out with your own code, or the FTP application.

Before attempting another dump, delete the LV2.BIN that is in /dev_hdd0/game/ as the next dump will append to the file if it exists.

The dump is right around 8MB - which will let you take a look at the PS3's kernel.

Expect more tools from us in the future for the PS3."

I asked the guy on the phone if I could get my ps3 back with firmware 3.15 or lower (it had 3.01 on it at the time and I was trying to update to 3.15 until got the firmware upgrade loop failing at 72%), and the person on the phone, after speaking with the manager, said that my PS3 will come back with the latest firmware. I was pretty pissed. I actually told them that I would sue them if it came back with higher than 3.15.

I do have an old Ps3 Jap fw: 1.31 with EE inside. Some people are probably thinking as i do and probably wonder themselfs, is that possible to turn my Retail into a Debug ? as it's not a matter of hardware.

Well, I am impatiently waiting for my PS3 to come back from sony repair. I hope I'm not on the latest firmware when I get it.

But damn. I ordered a teensy++ on sep 6th and chances are I wont see it until christmas time. That blows. I'm going to have to have my buddy come over with his iphone like 10 times a day. That will suck.

You will need some sort of Jailbreak device, whether it is homemade (teensey etc) or a clone in order to install the ftp homebrew and lvl2 dump .pkg file as they are unsigned!

I think the guy asking for someone to upload a dump to look at was requesting as they have neither a homemade jig or a bought clone.
