Following up on his BwE NOR Validator and BwE NOR Patcher, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer BwE has released BwE NOR Validator v1.16 followed by v1.17, v1.18, v1.19, v1.20, v1.21, v1.22, v1.23, v1.24, v1.25, v1.28, v1.30 and v1.31 alongside BwE NOR / NAND Patcher v0.01 followed by v0.02 and v1.01 with details below.

Download: BwE NOR Validator v1.16-v1.31 / BwE NOR / NAND Patcher v0.01-v1.01 / BwE NOR-NAND Patcher v0.02 / BwE NAND Validator v1.75 (Experimental) / BwE NAND Validator v1.00-v1.02 / BwE NOR / NAND Dump Information v1.00

To quote: BwE NOR Validator v1.16

Application MD5: A9D0B21E8C0452EF00EFC48DA79D974C

Changelog

  • 1.31 - 27/05/2013 : added eid4 + fixed bug in entropy (note: possibly final version, unless adding firmware revisions/new consoles)
  • 1.30 - 21/05/2013 : completely rewritten eid, cisd, ccsd + added more validations to it, upgraded other minor validations. all due to upcoming nand validator (note: possibly final version, unless adding firmware revisions/new consoles)
  • 1.28 - 15/05/2013 : completely rewritten cvtrm validation + added more validations to it, upgraded/perfected entropy (possibly final version, unless adding firmware revisions/new consoles)
  • 1.25 - 13/05/2013 : added entropy check for metldr/bootldr (possibly final version, unless adding firmware revisions/new consoles (From EussNL: Entropy is used for checking encrypted sections, like metldr/asecureloader and bootldr, which because of their encryption will have high entropy. When knowing the entropy of other sections (based on known good dumps), it can be a good prediction of the validity of it without interpreting or decrypting it.)
  • 1.24 - 06/04/2013 : added more information to suit newly discovered ps3 data, improved validation, added a tip for bad md5's, removed version forcing (possibly last release).
  • 1.23 - 29/04/2013 : improved validation, added 4.41 ofw information
  • 1.22 - 16/04/2013 : added 115 more validations + changed statistic range for bootldr + other small boring changes
  • 1.21 - 11/04/2013 : patch3 error fix.
  • 1.20 - 10/04/2013 : added new console data, removed 3.56 patch (replaced with 4.40), added protection against using old validator, changed corruption check (again!), added quick info for console.
  • 1.19 - 09/04/2013 : changed metldr statistic range, minver check (to suit refurbished ps3s), corruption changes
  • 1.18 - 08/04/2013 : upgraded cisd/cell_ext_nor_area/metldr validations to suit unique metldr.2 revision, changed corruption output (again).
  • 1.17 - 08/04/2013 : changed repetition check, changed corruption output, bugfix
  • 1.16 - 02/04/2013 : added rogero's 4.40 patch, changed options, added 25+ md5's, changed stats range and id check

BwE NOR/NAND Patcher 0.01 has the same exciting features as my validator, only - less.

Patches 3.55/3.56/4.40 on NOR or NAND. Validates CoreOS and maybe TRVK. Does that without a loader/chiptunes and all in the console. Faster than other my validator and other patchers.

Found any bugs? Let me know. I just made this for giggles so its bound to have something wrong.

BwE NOR/NAND Patcher 0.02

  • Fixes the E3 flasher style (swapped) dump issue.

BwE NOR/NAND Patcher 1.01

  • Another bugfix update.

Finally, below is a WIP (via pastebin.com/DUivneHz) BwE NAND Validator, as follows:

BwE NAND Validator

This all in one validator/patcher will patch for 3.55 and will output the results of 2799+ validations via HTML.

  • 1.02 - 09/06/2013 : bugfix for patcher (did not fix enough) + added some more MD5's (CFW)
  • 1.01 - 28/05/2013 : bugfix for patcher (mistake from using old nor code)
  • 1.00 - 27/05/2013 : first proper/public release (because I am lazy there will be no loader!)

Following up on his PS3 NOR Dump Auto-Patcher v0.01, today PlayStation 3 developer Rogero has released PS3 NOR and NAND Auto Patcher v0.04 with the changes outlined below.

Download: PS3 Nor and Nand Auto Patcher v0.04.rar / PS3 Nor and Nand Auto Patcher v0.04.rar (Mirror) / PS3 Nor and Nand Auto Patcher v0.04.rar (Mirror #2) / PS3 Nor and Nand Auto Patcher v0.04.rar (Mirror #3)

To quote: PS3 Nor and Nand Auto Patcher v0.04

ChangeLog:

Initial release v0.01

  • Compatible with both E3 and ProgSkeet Nor dumps.
  • Checking your PS3 Nor Dump if it is Byte-Reversed or No.
  • Applying the correct downgrade patches depending on the Dump type detected.
  • Eliminating the need to byte-swap the dump in order to apply the patches.
  • Making the patching easier rather then using several programs to do it.

v0.04 Update

  • Added new Rogero CFW4.40 v1.02 patches.
  • Works for any PS3 model with downgradable metldr revision (not metldr2) including PS3 with Minver 3.56
  • No more FSM is needed for downgrading.
  • Added detection of non-downgradable "metldr" revisions.
  • Added support for Interleaved NAND Dumps (now will patch both Nor and Nand dumps)

How to use:

  • Dump your Flash many times and verify it well before proceeding.
  • Drag and Drop any Nor or Interleaved NAND Dump onto the executable,
  • It will detect the dump type and patch it accordingly with CFW4.40 patches.
  • Flash the patched image back into the PS3 Nor/Nands.
  • Restart the PS3.

If the PS3 was already on OFW4.40 then it must start normally and you can Install Rogero CFW4.40 v1.02 from XMB -> Settings -> System Update.

If the PS3 was on OFW < 4.40 then you will see the "Connect a PS3 controller" screen, and you can continue by installing Rogero CFW4.40 v1.02 simply by following the screen instructions.

Warning: This program does not check for the dump validity, you must provide a good dump previously checked and verified.

It will patch the dump image even if it's not a 100% valid dump, the program only does some minimal checks before patching assuming that the user have provided a valid dump.

Following up on the PS3 NOR Inspector v0.01 and his previous release, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer BwE has made available a BwE NOR Validator Public HTML Edition v1.01 PS3 homebrew application followed by v1.02, v1.14 and newer revisions with details below.

How-to use

1) Run the comical keygen style loader
2) Click start (and maybe mute)
3) A console will appear asking you to select your dumps (if you have more than one in the folder)
4) Make your selection and or select if you watch to patch it (either in its current byte orientation or the opposite)
5) Wait patiently
6) Read the output

Areas Of Validation

  • Statistics
  • First Region Header
  • Flash Format
  • Flash Region
  • Asecure_Loader/Metldr
  • Asecure_Loader/Metldr Corrupt Sequences
  • Asecure_Loader/Metldr Encrypted Statistics

Use at own risk! Valid dumps may be invalid - Invalid dumps may be valid. There are almost infinite variations of each dump! Have fun and good luck!

You can use getconsoleID too, and if you changed the console ID can you generate a PSID with that?

the PSID can't be found in any NOR/NAND dump, only in the "dumped" LV1/LV2 dumps from the console. there you have the PSID, so it needs PSIDPatch either way... and the 2xConsoleID/IDPS in ur dump is at offset:

NAND offset 80870 - 16 bytes ( search again the IDPS and the second one appears..) NOR offset offset 2F070 - 16 bytes (search again the IDPS ...)

maybe this helps:

PSID starts at 0x800000000044A18C in 3.41, 0x800000000045218C in 3.55. It is 16 bytes long. Two identicle Console ID's exist in memory: one which is 32 bytes at 0x80000000003C2EF0 and another which is 16 bytes at 0x8000000000452174. PSN seems to use the second one, but PSIDPatch patches both

I am not sure...
