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."

From the dump it appears the ps2 discs are mounted as /dev_ps2disc/ which will probably come in handy down the road when people start wanting to play with that. Would be nice to fix the issue of ps2 discs, and memory functions not working after jailbreak.

to my knowledge these dumps will provide us better understanding to what goes on through the xmb and we will be able to emulate it better thus enabling things we have not done before.

You should just post it for the world to see if you have made one.

If you recall the xbox360 scene a few years back, that scene was blown wide open by someone who didn't even own a xbox360! So the more eyes on these dumps the better IMO.

PS3 Devs already have LV2 dumps now so there is no need to send them anywhere... really only those who don't mind posting theirs publicly could do so for others to examine.

Not going to run this dump until it proves useful for games.

won't matter when you have hypervisor access..
