Playstation Update Package (PUP) - Discussion/Talk[edit]

What is the part that defines, what firmware it really is?. I mean, for firmwares below 3.55 we have all the keys so whe can forge any PUP and make it appear as a +3.55, that would be a way to downgrade, without the need of a dongle and recovery mode.

I know there are version strings in pupheader,version.txt, info0, and in vsh.self.. but what is missing? What isn´t correclty set in mfw to make it pass the checks of a legit +3.55 fw?

We are using recovery mode to downgrade because, we haven´t found a way to create a legit +3.55

Adding new keys to older firmwares[edit]

patch the loaders
add keys to appldr keys index & tables
there are also npdrm keys inside appldr as well, add the 3.56++ ones
appldr,. lv2.self and game_ext_plugin need patching for new games support
vsh.self maybe too

Creating a MFW? (3.41/3.55 with 3.56 keys)


Proof of concept with added keys to appldr (and none of the other mentioned files above) : appldr 3.55 add 3.56/3.60 keys


Using fake upgrade to get lowest firmware version info[edit]

PS3_MinVerChk use on the CECHG04, using fake upgrade to get lowest firmware version info

http://ps3devwiki.com/files/firmware/MFW-CEX/MinVerCheck/ // MinVerChk.rar (1.28 KB) / mirror --- mirror 2

CRC-16: 9A11
CRC-32 (Ethernet and PKZIP): 50EE9A92
SHA-1: 1B60E0ADE8E698D9796AA78B7AD54B10E05A9B0B
MD-5: BB39828156BC7DF144E4D06D81C801AB
  1. Unrar and copy this MinVerChk PUP to your USB stick (/PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP), the same way as if it was an firmware upgrade.
  2. Insert the USB stick into the PS3.
  3. Start a firmware update like normal from XMB (Don’t worry, it will not update!)
  4. It will shortly fail and display the Firmware Base Value

Note: console needs to run at least FW 2.50? (2.30 didn't work); This only works when the minimum update version is 1.00, otherwise any minimum value lower than 1.00 reports as 1.00 using this method. DECR-1000 (0.08), DEH-H1000A-E (??0.92??), DEH-H1001-D (??0.92??), DECHA00A (??0.92??) are effectively affected by this.

PS3UPDAT.SHA[edit]

Some BluRay-Movie Discs contain firmware updates for the Playstation 3 Console. Inside the /PS3/UPDATE folder can be a file called "PS3UPDAT.SHA".

Remark @ Installation[edit]

ps3d storage region 3 on the internal harddisk (ps3dc) is used by the PS3 as temp for installing updates. When installing PUP files, the PUP content gets unpacked there, checked - the system flags the update bit and prompts for reboot. After reboot it sees the update bit set and installs the files from ps3dc without rechecking (!) -> possible attack vector for circumventing checks, like down-/crossgrading). edit-note: doesn't seem to be true, it is still checked.

ps3d - 4 possible regions :

ps3da : whole disk
  ps3db : UFS2 : GameOS
  ps3dc : FAT (2GB) : Update
  ps3dd : EXT3 : OtherOS (in the <=3.15 way)


No applicable data found - technical pov[edit]

Reasons why the playstation updating process does not recognize a pup.

  • 2) update_files.tar
    • unable to open PUP (rb)
    • unable to read first 0x30 Bytes (header)
    • unable to read further 0x20 Bytes sized segment_table (aka file tables)
    • unable to find core os package.pkg inside update_files.tar
  • 3) Unable to open Storage Region 1/2 on HDD.
  • 4) No Media present. (no success when fstat)

old crossgrading Retail/CEX to Debug/DEX[edit]

Note
For this to work your system must be below or at 1.80 for the 1.80 debug update and below or on 2.01 for the 2.15 debug update. Just use the next version up from your current firmware version for the retail update.

It's not very usefull, esp. nowadays, added for historic reasons

How to install debug firmware on retail PS3[edit]

old source: http://www.ps3hax.net/other-misc-tutorials/4808-tutorial-how-install-debug-firmware-retail-ps3-partially-hdd-swap-method.html

Tools needed[edit]

  • 1 PS3 system
  • 2 PS3 hard drives that are the same size
  • 1 retail firmware upgrade
  • 1.80 Or 2.15 debug firmware

Instructions[edit]

  1. Format both hard drives on the PS3 system.
  2. Download a debug PS3 firmware and place it in USB stick, and start the update. This will copy all the debug firmware files to the PS3's HDD-A.
  3. After copied the PS3 will restart and you will see the normal update menu which prompts you to click the button to start update. Do NOT update your PS3, but power it off.
  4. Next remove the HDD-A, and place in the second HDD, HDD-B in the PS3.
  5. Download and copy a retail PS3 firmware to a USB stick.
  6. Again as before place USB in PS3 and update the PS3 as normal but when you get to the screen where it asks for you to press button, do that but stop when it asks you to AGREE to Terms and Condition Page.
  7. While the system is still powered on and on the update screen, REMOVE HDD-B, and insert HDD-A.
  8. After swapping the HDD's continuie to update the PS3 as normal and the PS3 will install the debug PS3 firmware=
  9. Go to the settings and check firmware version and there you will also see the debugging PS3 options :)
