Mathieulh Talks. Possible 3.56 Downgrade and QA Flaging

Post by Thatxafghanxkid » Sun Jun 12, 2011 1:46 pm

Mathieulh is back! After taking a "tweeting" hiatus, he is at PSX-SCENE discussing Possible 3.56 Downgrade with Infectus. He is also discussing QA Flagging.

From CECHA01 + Infectus thread

Yes, you will however need to patch lv1 so it doesn't check the syscon hashes. (Yes, this is a trivial patch). If you are already in service mode, that patch is not required however.

Yes, keep in mind though that only the coreos (ros) areas have to be modified, the EID, metldr, bootloader, vtrm.... areas of the nor/nand have to be the one from your ps3, if they are imported from another console your ps3 won't be able to boot.

If I told you more than this, I'd rather release the whole hack myself then, because it'd be no different.
Just my 2 cents here.

Let's just say I don't like playing with fire, I risk great by simply helping you, Sony could sue me on bogus grounds and drawn me in legal fees if they so much see fit.

Or you could design your debugger and perform some live debugging on the thing, that's what I've done. Gets the job easier by 10 folds.

self made.
