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."

Actually - nothing else right now, I will leave it to the talent of other devs as plenty of the system info is now out in the open.

Hmm, custom firmware which could bring back OtherOS to firmware! Maybe even bring OtherOS to PS3Slim... and the PS2 emulation that the 80GB model had
