Can you please verify for us that your power cable connector is properly inserted into the connector. Usually the gold contacts have a hard time making the proper connection. Please let us know if you even get the stanby (red) light.

Thank You

Following up on the previous updates from BwE, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer sinsizer has made available PS3 NOR / NAND Statistic Beta for those interested in validating and checking their PS3 NOR / NAND dumps.

Download: NOR_NAND_Statistic_BETA.rar / NOR_NAND_Statistic_BETA.rar (Mirror) / PS3_NOR-NAND_Statistic.rar (Non-Beta) / PS3 NOR-NAND Statistic.rar (Mirror) / dumpstatistic.rar / dump (corrupt coreOS file) / PS3_NOR-NAND_Statistic_fixed.rar / dumpstatistic.rar by sinsizer / dumpstatistic.7z (Win XP) by Swizzy (Requires .NET Framework 4.0

To quote: Features:

  • NOR/NAND statistics
  • NOR/NAND patching
  • NOR/NAND byte swapping
  • NOR/NAND infos
  • NOR/NAND validation
  • NOR/NAND extraction
  • DATECODE check

This tool works different than other validators. Instead of outputting a full log, it will output an error.log, if validate is checked. But see for yourself.

Always patching 3.55 is recommended to see if the patched statistic is right/green. ckp_management_ID values have to be equel as well as per_console_nonce (should be stated in error.log if not). There is one easy rule! If the error.log contains an entry, your dump is definitly broken!

Ros section is excluded from validation. Why? It's easy to repair, the hole section gets patched anyway and it leads to the rule above.

For NAND all known sections gets checked. But a big part is not or only rarely documented. So the hole part after cvtrm, cell_ext_os_area, OtherOS and unreferenced area at the end won't be checked. It's very important that you have look at the statistics and the "corrupt block count" of flowrebuilder when interleaving.

It's always recommended to check dumps manually with an hexeditor, and using other tools for validation, to be as save as possible! As long as it is not possible to decrypt the full dump, it's impossible to validate it to 100%. Keep in mind this is only beta.

Update: From sinsizer:

  • Added 4.46 patches
  • Some small changes

OFFSET: 0xF00896 --- VALUE: 0x20 --- 0x00 BLANK AREA
