August 24, 2012 // 5:50 pm - Following up on the previous update, today I am releasing my True Blue USB dongle PS3 ELF dumper which works with any PlayStation 3 Firmware greater than 3.56 to dump the encrypted TB EBOOT / ELF files once they are loaded.

Download: True Blue USB Dongle PS3 ELF Dumper / True Blue USB Dongle PS3 ELF Dumper (Mirror) / True Blue USB Dongle PS3 ELF Dumper (Mirror #2) / True Blue USB Dongle PS3 ELF Dumper (Mirror #3) / True Blue USB Dongle PS3 ELF Dumper (Mirror #4) / True Blue USB Dongle PS3 ELF Dumper (Mirror #5) / True Blue USB Dongle PS3 ELF Dumper (Mirror #6) / True Blue USB Dongle PS3 ELF Dumper Source Code / True Blue USB Dongle PS3 ELF Dumper Source Code (Mirror) / UTEBOOT (DUMPEDBOOT.bin and DUMPEDBOOT1.bin) by arnes_king / Mass Effect 3 BLUS30853 RAMDUMP by gibson25 / TB ELF Dumper v2 (np_trp_prx.rar) / TB ELF Dumper v2 (Mirror) / DUMPEDBOOT PoC by mellss

Tested on:

  • Original 355 -> ok
  • True Blue CFW v2 -> ok
  • ...

There are some bugs (size of dump ...) but it works. It's ELF dumper from memory and it work with True Blue cfw v2 and any 3.55 firmware because it doesn't use lv2 peek/poke.

Warning: It will not brick your ps3. But I am not responsible for any damage.

HOWTO:

  • Enable dev_blind with multiman
  • copy libsysutil_np_trophy.sprx from /dev_blind/sys/external/external to dev_hdd0/ and rename it "orignal_libsysutil_np_trophy.sprx"
  • copy my modified "libsysutil_np_trophy.sprx" to /dev_blind/sys/external/
  • load a True blue game from multiman
  • exit multiman
  • run your game
  • wait few minutes (if you get black screen after 3 minutes reboot ps3)
  • exit game
  • go to ftp
  • in dev_hdd0/ there are your decrypted DUMPEDBOOT.bin
  • copy and rename it with another name.

Howto uninstall patch - Two ways:

  • You could uninstall this patch by replacing modified libsysutil_np_trophy.sprx by orginal libsysutil_np_trophy.sprx
  • Or update in recovery mode

Thanks to: Ps3dev

Brief Guide:

1 - Install TB ELF Dumper first as stated in its readme file.
2 - Start Multiman, it will make a dump of multiman eboots, so you must delete it first by browsing to dev_hdd0 then delete all DUMPEDEBOOT.BIN files you found there.
3 - Back to multiman game selection then select any TB game then launch it.
4 - Start the game from XMB then wait for some times until game start.
5 - Exit game now then start multiman again then browse to dev_hdd0 and now you must found a decrypted game dump.

From PlayStation 3 developer deank (via pastebin.com/avcM5iuU) comes a revision as follows:

Download: TB ELF Dumper v2 (np_trp_prx.rar) / TB ELF Dumper v2 (Mirror)

[Register or Login to view code]

Changed:

  • Doesn't stop dumping when it reaches embedded ELF
  • Dumps 35MB of RAM in one write call (so it takes ~1 second)
  • Dumps are saved in /dev_hdd0/RAMDUMP-##.BIN where ## is from 00 to 99 for 100 sequential dumps
  • Doesn't really require the original sprx, since loading never succeeds anyway
  • Tested: dumps mM, Beyond Good&Evil HD PSN...
  • Rebuilding the original 'elf' takes few minutes if you know what you're doing

Finally, from mellss: I tested shadoxi patch, in ofw 3.55 dex and 3.55 cfw it work fine (but like he said some buggy with size of dump). And also let him time to dump all memory!!! (it take for me around ~10 - 20 min !!!)

Proof Of Concept:


I make a fself EBOOT.bin (4.11 dex) which load reencrypted (flself) shadoxi patch and YES his patch dump my eboot and also some 4.11 dex lib sprx !!! So if someone can run shadoxi or deank patch when a game is running we can get decrypted 4.xx EBOOT.

I think TB team load the decrypted eboot to another offset in memory, that's why some of people get ps3 crash when TB was plugged. But, We can get this new offset by editing shadoxi exploit and print the address of a variable (stack address) to get the new one.

I do not know, by what miracle guys have run Batman Arkham City on TB CFW, it gave me black screen all the time, and I tried with and without disc, with and without patch, with and without dlc... etc.

1) Then I tried to make a PSN-like package to run it with the TB unplugged (you remember good old times, eh?). After 2.5 hours of converting NPDRM-update-like-pkg signed with debug keys with hard-as-nutshell-to-decrypt eboot, I finally managed to create a pkg. It run, but at the install it hanged.

2) So, I made another (obvious) solution in half an hour - reencrypted eboot, so you can replace it directly over your game dump and play happily on any 3.55 CFW (included TB) without problems (haven't tried dlc's on TB CFW yet). Tested on TB CFW v2 with dongle plugged.

Instructions:

1. Replace ebbot in your game's dump directory with this: http://www.sendspace.com/file/3u2rb5 (THIS IS NOT AN OLD EBOOT, IT'S CONVERTER!)
2. Run the game, allow it to install data, start new game, when you'll regain control of Bruce, while moving the character, you should press PS button and chose "Exit game"
3. Start multiman, copy "PATCH" directory d/l from here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/8yp618 to your hdd0/game/BLUS30538/USRDIR (game install directory)
4. Start the game again, wait till another install finishes, enjoy!

No old semi-working patches were used, it's a real deal, patched to run in a way for TB users, who have troubles launching the usual style.

Come on guys, I sacrificed some precious hours of sleep (it's 4 AM here), I deserve some +reps

Here is another update from the TB site:

23 - 7 - 2012

The True Blue team will soon be launching an updated version of our dongle, hence our silence and lack of news/updates. The changes include a new style casing to help differentiate clones from the authentic True Blue dongles. The new version dongle will be compatible with EBOOT patches released to date, whilst existing authentic True Blue dongles in the market will continue to be supported in the same firmware releases.

You can expect a spate of EBOOT releases shortly after the new version dongle is released. We also plan to include a lot of extra features for our loyal True Blue user base in upcoming firmware releases. which will also function seamlessly on existing authentic True Blue dongles.

We would also like to bring to our potential customers and existing users attention that the website: truebluejb2.cc is selling FAKE dongles. We are in no way associated with them nor will we replace or support their fake dongles.

Information received suggests that they have not yet cloned our new style packaging, so large qty's of devices in the market which do NOT come packed in the packaging detailed below (30-5-2012 news) are most likely fake. We will continue to monitor the situation daily.

The upcoming new firmware releases will also block the clones and help users differentiate fakes from authentic dongles.

Upcoming firmware releases will block these fake devices and furthermore EBOOT's will not support the clones. PB2 and JBking clone devices will also be blocked in the future and will not function correctly with our upcoming features!

We thank our customers for their continuing support and hope you will enjoy the coming features and EBOOT patches.........

The clones sold by truebluejb2.cc can be differentiated by checking the PCB inside the casing using the guide below, as previously posted in news.

very crazy stuff, i think you will probably need kind of update, or adapter, or something for the true blue to work, the pieces just do not add up to me.

Ouch! Please don't make another dongle

If they did make another dongle for high rocket price then, I guess I have to say goodbye to PS3 and welcome 360

I'm afraid that if True Blue really releases a new dongle soon, they won't release any more eboot for the dongle, as it already has a lot of clones, and they probably want to sell more from their new dongle...

TrueBlue (JB2) will stop production and another dongle will be released according to LighTake's site:

True Blue JB2 was stop producing and a newest replace product will be released in July, please pay close attention to TB official site news update in recently days. Any questions just contact sales for help.

A newer replace DRM dongle with build-in ndw function will be released July 20th.

Q: Does the old TB dongle compatible with the new one?
A: Yes! our supplier said the old TB will still get support on updating so that it can play new games as the new dongle. If there is a change, I will advance notice.

Q: What's the name and function of the new dongle?
A: It's still a mystery currently, I will update immediately if I heard something from our supplier.

We have confirmed that the new dongle is still called True Blue (aka JB2 / TB), but it was changed new packaging and add more function in it. What's the new technical support? I am sorry we don't know currently except compatible with the old TB eboots.
