168w ago - Following up on the previous True Blue (TB) PS3 JailBreak 2 (JB2) DRM-infected dongle news comes a WIP update from Shadoxi on dumping and decrypting the TB and Cobra payloads below, as follows:

Download: TB / Cobra Payloads (2.84 MB) / TB / Cobra Payloads (2.84 MB - Mirror) / TB / Cobra Payloads (2.84 MB - Mirror) / PS3 True Blue MFW (172.19 MB)

I have figured out where the payload is located of the TB and Cobra dongles. You can find it at offset @360000 in lv2_kernel and 7f0000 in PS3 memory. According to the PS3 Developer Wiki (ps3devwiki.com/index.php/ReDRM_/_Piracy_dongles) the LV2 dump payload at 0x7f0000 has also been decrypted @ LV2 dump 0x7f0000 (pastebin.com/3VG76HQs)

Drag and drop payload in IDA and load it in Binary file mode, Processor type PPC.Press "C" to convert in ASM code.

First of all you need to edit the header of lv2_kernel.self (from CFW TrueBlue) at offset 0x1D, replace 36 1A 00 by 4C FC F0. And decrypt it with unself tool from fail0verflow. Open lv2_kernel.elf with IDA Pro (in binary file mode), go to offset 360000 and press "C" to convert to asm code.

TrueBlue use some HVCALL:

  • lv1_insert_htab_entry
  • lv1_undocumented_function_114
  • lv1_undocumented_function_115
  • lv1_allocate_device_dma_region
  • lv1_map_device_dma_region
  • lv1_net_start_tx_dma
  • lv1_net_control
  • lv1_panic (shutdown ps3 when TB is unplugged)

This payload do some HVCALL:

  • lv1_insert_htab_entry (map lv1)
  • lv1_allocate_device_dma_region (?)
  • lv1_map_device_dma_region (?)
  • lv1_net_start_tx_dma (?)
  • lv1_net_control (?)
  • lv1_panic (shutdown ps3 when TrueBlue dongle is unplugged)
  • lv1_undocumented_function_114 (map lv1)
  • lv1_undocumented_function_115 (unmap lv1)

We needed to dump lv2 and lv1 memory when the dongle is plugged in, so I created a modified TB CFW with peek and poke syscall. It works fine !

Finally, from the MFW_TrueBLue.zip ReadMe file: Warning this mfw can brick your dongle !!!

  • First install PS3PEEKTEST.pkg
  • Install MFW TrueBlue firmware in recovery mode
  • Start ps3peektest

If Peek Result is equal to 10 and true blue light is green -> work.

TB is TAKING TOO LONG, for releasing their NEW GAMES EBOOT and NEW PATCH for their dongle. This is a stupid method, WHY ?

Because DUPLEX get the first to CRACK new GAMES such as DARKSIDERS2 and SLEEPING DOGS.

Honesty, I hate with TB, they should work together to make new games with mod eboot so it can play it with their dongle.

NOW it's too late, DUPLEX beats DONGLE!

Currently the ones that get re-released with the DRM removed, whether this will change only time will tell... at the moment there are 2 games released above and most likely a slew more incoming from various scene release groups.

Does this mean if your ps3 is on kmeaw cfw 3.55 you can play ALL the TB cracked games, or only the ones that get cracked (eg max payne 3)?

This is awesome! Now all I need to wait for is a fixed eboot for Jak and Daxter collection, Twisted Metal, and Mass Effect 3.

Max Payne 3 TB Eboot Patch *CRACKED*

Release Info:

When we first read about the TrueBlue USB Dongle we were excited about it. Finally having a way to play FW 3.60+ games on CFW 3.55 again. What a great asset to the scene everyone thought .. until people found out that this USB Dongle was solely made for cashing in! Its only purpose was to check on the DRM the TrueBlue Team added to their 3.55 Eboots. What a shame!

DUPLEX to the rescue! Finally bury your TB dongle because we removed their unnecessary DRM and their Patches will now work on Cfw 3.55 without any dongle or special TB CFW.

Notes:

Copy the files inside the rars into your games usrdir and replace existing ones Tested on Kmeaw CFW 3.55 with Max.Payne.3.PROPER.PS3-DUPLEX more to come ...

Enjoy This Fine DUPLEX Release

From anonymous also comes another Max Payne 3 Update v1.05 [FW 4.0] Patched for CFW 3.40+ workaround as follows:

Max Payne 3 BLES / BLUS Test EBOOT and Param.sfo:

Download: http://www.mirrorcreator.com/files/RQWCQLZ7/max_payne3_patched_eboots.rar_links

  • Max Payne 3 BLES / BLUS Test EBOOT and param.sfo
  • The rar has an embedded readme with the pkg links
  • Its probably best if they have the common.sdat from the duplex release, though I am not positive.
  • They need to backup files, preferable that person has spoofing
  • Game update sfo's, don’t replace the Game sfo!!!!

From CaptainCPS-X: Here you have the PKG files for easy install of this awesome “Anonymous” collaboration! (thanks to hellsing9 to for providing with the files) This is really cool since maybe more 4.0 FW games will be patched in the future by this Anonymous person! Thanks!

FIX_340_EP1004-BLES00942_00-MP3PATCH00000004-A0105-V0100-PE.pkg (51 MB)

Installation instructions:

Here is a list of the TB releases for those who need to remove the dongle patched games and overwrite them with the PS3 scene release (Duplex, NRP, etc) fixes as they become available.

In related PS3 hacking news SGuerrini97 made available a CoreDump BLES00025 NBA2K7 (Password: BySGuerrini97) stating: Here is the Core Dump + Original self of NBA 2K7 (BLES00025). I made the dump from the original disk, i think that i can dump ALL the originals games.

Also below harryoke has outlined how he did a PS3 full core dump, as follows:

Download: PS3 Core Dump / PS3 Core Dump (Mirror)

Hello there my friends... as you may or may not know i have been looking into the possibility to get a full core dump from my ps3... a few hours ago i was sent a pm from ANON ... here it is....

Hey mate, yeh cfwprophet told something about the ram dump too. you can make a core dump on a dex. here is a quote from him:

'I say it now for the last time: There is NO fself for new games !! TrueBlue use the CoreDump function and a RSX exception to dump the games like i told the scene for over a half year.'

'Take MultiMan 04.02 which is a Retail NPDRM >> enable core dump function >> start MultiMan >> exit to XMB and be surprised'

'The Coredump function is a embended system of the debug FW and get handled of liblv2dbg. The send signal call aka send_signal_to_coredump_handler() and the trigger function are always running and CAN NOT be deactivated.'

He also said that you will get one 250MB file. there you have to search the decrypted file(s). it would be pretty sure that they use this method, because newer games wouldnt have debug eboots or fselfs.

If you open a tb eboot with a hex editor, you will see near at the end , that they stand right after the codes some passages with 'liblv2'. if you open a original eboot , you cant find passages with 'liblv2'. like cfwprophet said, the core dump get handled of 'liblv2dbg' and you can find 'liblv2' passages in tb eboots. so they use coredump pretty sure.

But the problem is to trigger a crash or so. i really dont know. i'm not a dev and dont have an idea. i just wanted to tell you this infos because i saw your post about coredump.

Here you can read more infos: ps3devwiki.com/files/documents/-SONY%20PS3%20SDK%20Documentation/360.01/cell/en/pdf/debug_support/Core_Dump-Overview_e.pdf

And here about liblv2dbg: ps3devwiki.com/files/documents/-SONY%20PS3%20SDK%20Documentation/RTL2.3.0/debug_support/liblv2dbg-Overview_e.pdf

Well i now have a few core dumps ...some were 250mb and a 500mb dump which i have uploaded including the log file...it is in rar format & compressed to 45mb

Hopefully this will lead us to the magic decrypted eboots that we all want. i hope someone with a bit more knowledge than me can use this info.

Just done a quick search of dump for USRDIR found this at address 002530E0

The video explains how to open the dongle by grabbing the plastic lip behind the usb connector with pliers an pulling towards you, Thus exposing the plastic casing... Check out the video.

How to take apart your True Blue dongle to see if you have a real or a fake one. Real easy guide to make sure is worth it. Fake dongles have a green pcb with medium size LEDs at the bottom, we're as a Real TB has a blue pcb with tiny LEDs an a actel chip (like the one in the video, if yours resembles that then its real.)
