Platform ID (or is a hardware identifyer...

  • Dont confuse with other motherboard identifyers in cISD1 section as:
    • board_id is the serial number "printed" in the motherboard. In PS3's from euro region this same number is part of "PS3 serial" in the white sticker (e.g. SERIAL: xx-12345678-xxxxxx-CECH-xxxxX [1]). USA and other regions does not list it
    • kiban_id is the barcode "printed" in the motherboard

LV2 syscall: Get OS Version, Platform ID, and Build Number[edit]

#include <ppu-lv2.h>
s32 lv2_get_platform_info(uint8_t platform_info[0x18]){
	lv2syscall1(387, (uint64_t) info);

this is what you could get:



  • 0x030550 is the PS3 version also if spoofed to another FW
  • 0x40436f6b423130 converted to ascii is @CokB10 and that is the Platform ID
  • 0xb5ed is the Build Number also if spoofed to another FW

Help Request[edit]

Dump platform info (coded by "3141card" as a standalone function for documenting purposes)

  • How to use:
  1. Plug a storage device in usb0 (USB port closer to the Bluray drive)
  2. Install and boot the app... then the PS3 beeps 3 times... then the app automatically quits and returns to XMB (there is no display on screen, this is normal)
  3. A file with the name "platform_info.bin" is created in usb0
  4. Open this file in a hex editor, take note of the Cok*** (can be readed in ASCII in the hex editor)
