PS3 Eboot Dumper Preview and MEMore! 200°
January 16, 2008 // 2:52 pm - A quick update tonight with a few more details about the upcoming Eboot.bin Dumper utility. It dumps the Eboot.bin from your original PS3 Game disc, and strips the disc layer of encryption, so it is a less-encrypted SELF.

The program is simple to use: first install the package to a TEST/TOOL PS3. Then insert a memory stick in the PS3 and run the program. Upon completion, remove the memory stick and read it in a PC.

You now have an EBOOT.BIN that is void of the disc layer of encryption! There are still a few add-ons that can be made such as dumping to a PC, however that...

Revised PS3 Boot Information 250°
December 13, 2007 // 2:37 am - Our Resident DEVS have revised the PS3 Bootup procedure, with some more interesting information.

asecure_loader is not at start of the NAND. The first 512KB also is skipped, or actually any 512 block of FF is skipped.

Furthermore, the asecure_loader differs per box, possibly encrypted with a per-box key. Files of course are not in clear, that suggests that at every step an encryption/decryption is done.

The boot loader in IDA does not look microcode for IDL, maybe it's encrypted with cpu key (the IBM secure boot/asecure_loader), that can explain also why...

EVE Online Update Wipes XP BOOT.INI 50°
December 6, 2007 // 3:53 pm - Installed the latest EVE Online update earlier today? Don't reboot your computer! The update apparently has a "bug" which results in the deletion of your BOOT.INI startup file on XP systems. No big deal, aside from the fact Windows won't boot with this file missing.

CCP has removed the update as of 4 A.M. GMT today. However, if you are running XP and have downloaded and installed the update before said time, then your BOOT.INI is most likely long gone.

As for steps to remedy this problem, first check to make sure the BOOT.INI file exists:

If you are...

PS3 Development Discoveries: Week 1 100°
November 8, 2007 // 4:47 pm - Each week or so we will post a brief report from the resident PS3 Devs here, and below is one for this week:

The PS3 Boot-up Procedure.

The SCC (Super Companion Chip), made by Toshiba gets the PS3 started up. It reads asecure_loader from flash, and loads it into SPE in isolation mode. The Flash reading is interesting, as the data on the flash chips are interleaved, so the SCC merges them, among other things.

asecure_loader is then decrypted and ran, and it brings up lv1ldr. The keys for self decryption (among other things) are most likely accessible...

Normal Boot Loader for Pandora's Battery Released for PSP 50°
September 11, 2007 // 5:25 pm - Booster of DevHook fame has released a normal boot loader utility for anyone who has converted a PSP battery to Pandora.

Download: Normal Boot Loader For Pandora's Battery

Essentially, what this tool can do, is write a special IPL to any Memory Stick PRO DUO (no, 32MB sticks won't work) so that when inserted in conjunction with a Pandora's Battery, the PSP will boot to the XMB as normal. Quite useful if you have any spare memory sticks laying around.

How to install:
