    Default PS3 hacking slowing down?

    Hi there,

    is it only me or is PS3 hacking in general losing momentum?

    I remember those days where ps3-hacks.com unveiled another breaking news on new cfw, homebrew and the like nearly every single day; sometimes even more. Today the last news about PS3 is already two days old.

    Is it ps3-hacks.com (just to name one, since it has been my favorite blog about this topic) that simply stopped blogging everything or is it in fact PS3 hacking itself that's somehow slowing down? Or is it maybe just a subjective impression?

    Just curious...

    Hendrik

    It's plateauing of at a normal pace. What we saw in the early days was an extraordinary pace because the ps3 was hacked for the first time.

    Right, whenever development occurs is when everything will start moving again.

    Default Cfw 3.60

    Is there anyone working on 3.60. Iam thinking about going legit. Iam looking into buying a DELL'S 3D MONITOR. Let me know if anyone's working on this firmware

    You don't understand. Sony supposedly removed the exploit from 3.60

    Mathieulh probably just let the cat out of the bag with his obvious hint to the much talked bug that practically owned future PS3 firmware updates, and also the mass growth of warez leechers with the help of 3.60 app keys. Yes, we’re talking about the unstoppable 3.60+ CFWs. Provided that Sony won’t release unhackable PS3 consoles in the near future, of course.

    From the chat logs:
    X nah, not a single line of code, at least not for the implementation
    but finding the exploit itself
    is EASY
    except no one has gone looking
    I’ve seen lots of askings and whining, very little looking xD
    if someone who remotely knows spu reversing starts looking
    he’ll find it
    at the very worse in a matter of hours
    the bug is retardly stupid to begin with
    LV0, EID0, anything with coreOS imo should not be done without a hardwareflasher. Atleast with that you can undo the mess.

    yeah
    I am a bit of a red head here xD
    you keep saying that, but I suck at SPU assembly icon wink Mathieulh Explains The Loader Exploit To Obtain 3.60 Application Keys

    you’d find it even if you fail at it
    you just need to know where to look
    just look at how selfs are processed by ldrs
    and you’ll find it
    hell, I’ll help you, it’s about overflowing a certain buffer
    yes, that is what defyboy and I tried to document in the ps3devwiki : bootprocess and loader locations etc. icon smile Mathieulh Explains The Loader Exploit To Obtain 3.60 Application Keys

    well if you know how selfs are processed by loaders, it’s easy
    another hint
    it happens before the ecdsa check
    my earlier guess btw was that it was a header overflow, which gave access to the local storage

    It’s a retarded exploit
    if you want to know what it is, I’ll tell you
    the function that copies the SCE header from the shared LS to the isolated Local Store
    doesn’t check the header’s size
    o/ icon smile Mathieulh Explains The Loader Exploit To Obtain 3.60 Application Keys

    it’s just THAT retarded
    implementing it isn’t easy though
    cause loaders have failsafes and shit
    header size fail
    lol
    ?

    but now that you know, you can try it on your own
    X1 yes
    you craft a self with a HUGE header
    so it overwrites ldr code as it gets copied to the isolated LS
    and you wait the loader to jump to it
    lolol must try heh icon biggrin Mathieulh Explains The Loader Exploit To Obtain 3.60 Application Keys

    X1 it’s a total bitch to implement
    but feel free xD
    if someone pwns the bl with this and gets the keys, he’ll have my kudos
    cause finding the exploit is the easy part
    Sony’ll fix it now, but it’s not like I care much
    their “unhackable” ps3s are probably already on the way



    Some of the tidbits explaining how big the exploit is in the eyes of SONY’s M.I.B.

    why would they care about bootldr keys?
    ps3devnews etc. host metldr keys, appldr keys etc.
    X1 cause you can get lv0 decrypted
    once you get lv0 decrypted
    you get appldr
    once you get appldr
    you get 3.60 application keys
    once you get that
    you warez
    also, with those keys you can sign your own lv0, no ps3 fw update can beat you then

    yah
    you can have your 3.60+ custom firmware then
    and warez even more
    and mess with the psn again
    and so on

    Before you bashing out on me, you need to understand that this could help in some way for those who are still trying to pwn the ldrs and eventually sharing the actual hacks in the process. We know how important the keys are to Sony, so expect an anon release in the future. Hopefully, it can be done.
