Indi Info Manager (Individual Info Manager) is accessed e.g. in syscall 868 on GameOS


Indi Info Manager runs in HV Process 5. (from User Token Manager)

0x17001 - Read EID Data Size By Index[edit]

  • I have got access to this service through DM and tested it
  • This service is used e.g. by Update Manager, User Token Manager or Storage Manager
  • The service expects 2 additional parameters, each parameter is 8 bytes
  • I tested it with values: 0x0, 0x4 and 0x1000 for the 1st parameter. I extracted this values from HV Processes which use this service
  • The 2nd parameter is not used in a request but in a response. It contains EID size.
Index Size Of Data Description
0 0x860 EID0
1 0x2A0 EID1
2 0x730 EID2
3 0x100 EID3
4 0x030 EID4
5 0xA00 EID5
6 0x020 cISD0
7 0x200 cISD1
8 0x010 cISD2
9 0x030 cCSD0
0x1000 0xe960 metldr - size is version dependand

0x17002 - Read EID Data By Index[edit]

  • I have got access to this service through DM and tested it
  • This service is used e.g. by Update Manager, User Token Manager or Storage Manager
  • The service expects 2 additional parameters, each parameter is 8 bytes
  • The 1st parameter is same as the 1st parameter of service Read EID Data Size By Index
  • The 2nd parameter is EID Data Size that is returned by the service Read EID Data Size By Index
  • The returned data is some binary data.
  • The data returned by the service with 1st parameter set to 0x0 or 0x4 is from file eEID stored on FLASH storage device region 0.
  • The data returned by the service with 1st parameter set to 0x1000 contains string metldr.
  • E.g. EID0 data is passed by Update Manager to SPU module spu_token_processor.self when Update Manager loads and executes it with syscall 0x10043.
  • E.g. EID4 data is passed by Storage Manager to SPU module sb_iso_spu_module.self.

0x17004 - Read System Data[edit]

  • Reads data from cISD or cCSD files stored on /dev/rflash1.
  • E.g. Gelic MAC address is stored in file cISD.

0x17007 - Read System Data From EEPROM[edit]

  • Reads data from SC EEPROM
  • An index is passed to the service. The index is mapped to a specific SC EEPROM offset.

Here is the list of possible EEPROM offsets from HV 3.15:

Index SC EEPROM Offset Size Of Data Notes
0 0x48D20 6 spider.gbe0.macaddr.0
1 0x48D28 6 spider.gbe0.macaddr.1
2 0x48D30 6 spider.gbe0.macaddr.2
3 0x48D38 6 spider.gbe0.macaddr.3
4 0x48D00 4 ip_addr
5 0x48D04 4 ip_netmask
6 0x48D08 4 ip_gateway

0x17014 - Write eEID/Write metldr[edit]

  • Holy crap, it writes passed data to the region of FLASH memory where eEID or metldr data is stored !!!
  • And GameOS is allowed to use this service !!!
  • Do not experiment with this service if you don't know what it does or else your PS3 will not work anymore !!!

0x17015 - Read cISD Size[edit]

  • Returns size of data cISD that is stored on FLASH storage device region 0

0x17016 - Read cISD[edit]

  • Returns data cISD that is stored on FLASH storage device region 0

0x17017 - Write cISD[edit]

  • Writes passed data to the region of FLASH memory where cISD data is stored !!!
