KaKaRoTo Introducing PL3 and 3.01 firmware


I’ll announce two things, first, let’s talk about PL3.. PL3 is a new project I started in order to have a common repository of payloads that can be used by any ‘jailbreak’  implementation. I got tired of copying payloads from PSGroove, and I had some nice changes in mine that I thought the PSGroove project could benefit from, so I thought I’d create a single repository that both projects,PSFreedom and PSGroove (or any other similar projects) could use.

You can find it in github, so don’t hesitate to submodule it and use it.

Second important news… I’ve bought a new PS3 just for homebrew. Thanks to all who donated money so I can buy it (I didn’t get enough donations to pay for it, but enough to help me). I bought this PS3 used and it came with firmware 3.01! This is good and bad news : I can’t use PSFreedom to jailbreak it, so i’ve put on hold any improvements for it, however, it will allow me to actually port PSFreedom to older firmwares! My plan is to get the jailbreak working on 3.01, then move on to 3.10 and 3.15 (depending on how hard it is, i might skip 3.10).

Another good news is that after 4 days of  work, I was finally able to dump the LV2 memory from the 3.01 firmware, and now all that remains is to find the right offsets to patch, and port PSFreedom to 3.01, so all those who are still using this firmware version, you will soon be able to jailbreak it! Once I’m done with that, I’ll try to do the same with the 3.10/3.15 firmware versions!

To dump LV2, I used a trick and algorithms found by marcan42, so big thanks goes to him, as well as many other people who helped me out, RichDevX and Aaron in particular. I used RichDevX’s idea of ignoring the JIG and bruteforcing the address in which the port1 descriptor gets stored until I get a hit, then use that payload to dump lv2, then find the right JIG offset for that particular firmware from the dump. Marcan’s trick was to send the data through the ethernet cable by using LV1 only hypercalls, and it worked!

Now the latest git version of PL3 has a new ‘dump_lv2′ payload which you can use, it is firmware independent, and only uses LV1 hypercalls, so it should just work… It will dump all the lv2 memory through ethernet, so fire up wireshark, save the dump to a .pcap file, and use the tool in PL3/tools to extract the memory dump from the .pcap file.

In other news, I will soon upload to Ps3utils an .idc script that will search and find the syscall table, and correctly resolve all of its functions and name them properly.. maybe even have it automatically find all functions of a dump in order to save time creating procs in IDA. I’ll let you know once I’m done with it.

    All arrangements needs to be confirmed on paper, with full details from the print sizes included from the package,
    full costs, along with the duration from the photographer’s presence.
    The images out of this special day really should not be trusted to someone doing it for ‘extra
    money’ or like a favor to you. adsense_ad_unit += ‘<a class="adsense_abg" href="' + google_info.

    For price factor, you can check out the price packages with the services available from photographers online or you can ask from local sources about the charges of the
    photographers. How a lot of experience can you specifically have in wedding
    photography. If you’re working out of your respective home, you can a percentage of your respective mortgage and utility fees towards the Cost
    of Doing Business.

    So, it is advisable to do proper research and select the right rehab center
    that offers right treatment and has experienced & qualified professionals.

    In 2005, the “Addictions Recovery Measurement System (ARMS),” was published – describing the following
    7 life-functioning therapeutic activity dimensions for progress outcome measurements.

    Since many battling addictions lose their job over them, it’s good to know
