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

Here are the compiled hex's for most AVR boards. If you have a Atmega16u4 you are SOL for the time being as psgroove has been refusing to compile when that board is selected for some reason:

This is only for Firmware 3.15

datalogger also submitted this but I'm just adding it here instead of making a new thread for it... KaKaRoTo released an IDA Script to automate LV2 Dump from his Twitter: IDC script released.. dump LV2, and run the script on it in IDA, the follow the instructions. Enjoy!

I have attached it below and will link it in the first post now.

Some people wanted to keep the otherOS so they kept there fw below 3.15 up untill this point the jailbreak only worked on 3.41 now they to can have that joy of a jailbroken PS3 and keep otherOS.

Also a big if it might possible to bring otheros back to post 3.15fw.

I'm confused... isn't 3.41 newer than 3.15?? the latest ps3 fw is 3.50... why would they add support for an older version of the firmware when we need 3.50 support to be added instead?

jevinskie ( has coded the PL3 branch to now work on Psgroove devices. Attached it his uncomplied branch just edit the makefile to match your device settings and compile.

Yea, if anyone could compile this for the TI-84 that would be great. I'm in the same boat as you here.

But if anyone could point me in the right direction I could try to put it on the calculator myself. i would be willing to try if anyone could post some directions or something. I am fairly new but I would like to contribute.

Off-Topic: Whats the difference between PSGroove, and PSFreedom?
