Leaks, chaos and drama have been something common, and on the heels of the PSVita chaos comes the PS3s turn with both good and bad news. This event is so huge that it will completely change the PS3 hacking scene and leave Sony in the wake.

Sony will be turning in their graves today as the PS3 has been basically blown wide open thanks to other events leading up to that. In the wake of this leaves Sony in huge trouble and mostly exhausted due to the amount of progress the hacking scene has made on their devices especially with the recent Psvita PSP EMU kernel exploit.

It’s been absolute chaos in the PS3 scene for the last few days and fair enough to say has been chaotic over the last few years. Ill break down what happened and what this means for the developers and users, keep reading...

Background Information

The similarity in events is extremely blatant but its started...

Download: PS3 Lv0 Assault v1.0 / PS3 Lv0 Assault v1.1 / PS3 Lv0 Assault v1.2 / qtintf.dll (Required)

To quote, roughly translated: LV0 assault is an application that uses the contents of any file type to search for valid cryptographic keys to decrypt files encrypted with keys LV0 metldr * or *.

What it does:

The operation of this program is not based on the use of the techniques of "brute force" is limited to just keep trying all possible keys of 32 bytes that can be found in a file.

PS3 Hacker Mathieulh on 3.60 Firmware LV0 Dump Exploit & Keys 1350°
205w ago - Today PS3 hacker Mathieulh has tweeted some new details on dumping LV0 from PlayStation 3 3.60 Firmware and obtaining the new keys, followed by Ps3WeOwnYoU claiming he has already reproduced it to confirm it works.

Below are all the tweets, as follows:

Mathieulh's Tweets:

  • xShadow125 You can update from your own pup only from 3.55 or lower, unless you have an exploit.
  • xShadow125 Of course that should be fixed in upcoming lv0 revisions anyway (By moving the ldrs to the top of lv0)
  • xShadow125 You run the 3.60 lv0, then you switch the nor, and pull the cell reset line, and you dump the extra KBs where the loaders are.
  • xShadow125 Basically you have a nor with 3.55 (or lower) lv0 and your own small lv1 code that does the dump, and 3.60 lv0 on the other.
  • xShadow125 You wont get all of lv0 but the part with the loaders shouldn’t be overwritten.
  • xShadow125 You can actually get all the 3.60 keys/loaders without knowing lv0 keys by dumping lv0 from ram with dual nor and signed lv1.
  • To those planning on building a 3.56+ pup for whatever reason, the files attributes changed, the group and user ids for the files as well.
  • The new 3.56+...
