April 19, 2013 // 6:53 am - 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 statistics.zip (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 <--this is not normal, but it doesn't brick your console.

OFFSET: 0xF20020 --- VALUE: 0x000002000000004000000000 --- CELL_EXTNOR_AREA <--- you can find this check in line 1522, add this value or delete the check.

Update 2: Changelog: minor changes to the GUI (allows adding new patches to the patch folder). Thx to 3absiso and ChazLJ for testing.

Download: dumpstatistic.rar

How to extract the patch file for future CFW's (extracting/decrypting coreOS)

Tools Download: cos_extract.rar

  • Extract CORE_OS_PACKAGE.pkg with pupview.exe from the firmware.pup.
  • Unpack/decrypt the CORE_OS_PACKAGE.pkg with fwpkg.exe
  • Copy the new file to the patch folder.

IMPORTANT!

You have to use "ros" somewhere in the name. Otherwise it doesn't get recognized as patch.

Update 3: From sinsizer: The tool patches now ros and rvk if a corresponding rvk patch is placed in the patch folder. If no rvk patch is found, it will only patch ros.

Naming convention for patch files:

  • ros_whatever_without_extension1
  • rvk_nor_whatever_without_extension1
  • rvk_nand_whatever_without_extension2

In the example you can see that it will patch ros and rvk for nor. For nand it will patch only ros, because the revoke patch has another name. All patch files have to begin with the red names.

The tool will be released without patch files from now on. You can download the patchfiles here: ps3coredump.eu5.org

PS3 Coredump - All Files are in readable format! (000000000FACE0FF00000000DEADBEEF) or (IFI)
All tools, which use these files, should automatically detect the input format and swap the byteorder, if needed.

In future updates a small downloader will be integrated, as well as some other features regarding c2d and keyextraction from eid.

PS3 NOR/NAND Statistic Download: dumpstatistic_low_res.7z / dumpstatistic_low_res.7z (Mirror)

From Swizzy on the Win XP port (linked above): What I did was download the latest one then I decompiled it and fixed a few minor decompilation errors and re-compiled it with .net 4.0 as target instead of .net 4.5. I tested to make sure it runs in Windows XP on one of my virtual machines, however... I didn't check that all checks etc. are ok, but they should be.

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 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!)
