October 1, 2010 // 4:31 am - Update #2: Jevinskie has now has coded the PL3 branch to now work on PSGroove devices, evilsperm has compiled PSGroove Jevin Firmware available HERE and RichDevX has released a 3.40 (Static) Debug Payload and a 3.40 + 3.41 (Static) Debug Payload so PS3 Debug users can utilize PSGroove to dump kernels, etc.

Update from KaKaRoTo, to quote: "Philhug and I have worked together recently to make PL3 compatible with 3.15, and it is now done, working and ready for you to use.

I have just pushed the latest changes to github, so just update both PSFreedom and PL3, and define FIRMWARE_3_15 in PSFreedom's config.h and recompile. You will then be able to enjoy your unrestricted PS3 on 3.15 firmwares. Enjoy!"

He also shared an IDA Script to Automate LV2 Dump today as detailed HERE.

Download: PSFreedom with PS3 Firmware 3.01/3.15 Support / PSFreedom PL3 3.01/3.15 Update / PSFreedom with PS3 Firmware 3.01/3.10/3.15 Support / PSFreedom PL3 3.01/3.10/3.15 Update

A few days ago we reported that more PSFreedom ports were on the way, and today KaKaRoTo has announced that PSFreedom now officially supports PS3 Firmware version 3.01.

Download: PSFreedom with PS3 Firmware 3.01 Support / PSFreedom PL3 3.01 Update

To quote: "I've got some great news for those of you who have not updated your PS3 firmware! I have just succeeded in adding Firmware 3.01 support into PSFreedom. I've pushed the latest code to github and you can now download the source and compile PSFreedom for 3.01.

For now, you will need to edit config.h and change the FIRMWARE_3_41 into FIRMWARE_3_01, then recompile. However, I will soon add support for dynamically choosing the target firmware version by simply doing a : echo 3.01 > /proc/psfreedom/fw_version

I will soon add support for firmware 3.10 and 3.15, so be patient, and you will be rewarded. I would like to thank Klutsh as well as Philippe Hub who helped me achieve this port to 3.01. The new payload changes are available in the PL3 github and any project/port that is also using PL3 should automatically gain support for the 3.01 firmware.

You will also be able to enjoy some new 'tools' in PL3 that will allow you to dump the LV2 kernel as well as the decrypted ELF files of the XMB and other configuration files it uses. The ethernet dumping is also now compatible with PS3 Slim models.

I would like to thank, again, those who have donated. For the others, you can still donate, if you appreciate the work I've done. Enjoy!"

Good news! I wonder what would happen if you dump the dev_flash for 3.01 and run it on 3.41

From Jevinskie: Hello all. Sorry about the broken build last night. Apparently the port3 0x09 0x04 interface descriptors are needed, to a degree (but not as many as there originally were). I restored the port3 descriptors back to their original form.

BD emu isn't working for some reason. It is in the PL3 payloads (as syscall 36) but Open Manger doesn't want to play my backups. Can someone w/ 3.41 test my code to see if there is a firmware version correlation?

Going through it now,

* @path: The path to use for bdvd redirection
* This new syscall will redirect all file access from /dev_bdvd to
* the path specified in argument here.

This is not like the original psgroove... and that string isnt even in the descriptor.h for the jevin release.

I believe that the syscall36.h.S needs to be fixed in order to get bdvd up and running again.

Go ahead dude, but don't forget to remove \dev_flash2\etc\xRegistry.sys

I am interested in \dev_flash\vsh\etc folder

this was taken off elotroado how to fix bd emu. lokesea this is what ke I say "simply changes the Descriptor.h the following code to activate the bdvd emulation on 3.15." This allows the use of "Backup Manager" or others as "Open Manager"

this: 0x78, 0x78, 0x78, 0x78

by this: 0x62, 0x64, 0x76, 0x64

I have been told the fix I compiled works, but there is a catch =( Staying true to PSGroove it does not support bdvd emulation...

I have been going through it to see where it needs to be re enabled but dont hold your breath just yet because the payloads don't include hermes or even AriealX methods.

I have also just got a dump of a 3.15 console! I will only be giving that dump to key devs for study as requested by the person who dumped it.

I feel your pain I also have a touch pro 2 as my only Jailbreak source. I have been trying to watch the xda forums in order to get a Hermes payload on my phone but there is no activity. I believe they updated the HD2 with hermes v1 but I heard nothing on the touch Pro 2.
