Syscon packets[edit]

Device Access Service (0x03)[edit]

EEPROM write[edit]

Purpose: Write block of data to EEPROM.

struct __attribute__ ((packed)) dev_access_request_t {
	uint8_t cmd; // 0x01
	uint8_t padding[3];
	uint32_t offset;
	uint32_t size;
	uint8_t data[0];
};

struct __attribute__ ((packed)) dev_access_response_t {
	uint8_t status; // 0x00:OK, 0x03:Wrong offset, 0x04:Wrong size, 0xFF:Error
	uint8_t data[0];
};
  • Although this service is not used on Slim and some Phat consoles anymore, it is working.
  • It seems it have the same restrictions as NVS service.

EEPROM read[edit]

struct __attribute__ ((packed)) dev_access_request_t {
	uint8_t cmd; // 0x00
	uint8_t padding[3];
	uint32_t offset;
	uint32_t size;
};

struct __attribute__ ((packed)) dev_access_response_t {
	uint8_t status; // 0x00:OK, 0x03:Wrong offset, 0x04:Wrong size, 0xFF:Error
	uint8_t data[0];
};
  • Although this service is not used on Slim and some Phat consoles anymore, it is working.
  • It seems it have the same restrictions as NVS service.

};

struct __attribute__ ((packed)) get_temperature_response_t {
	uint8_t status;
	int8_t temperature_hi;
	int8_t temperature_lo;

  • Temperature in celsius: sprintf("%d.%d", temperature_hi, (temperature_lo * 100) / 256);

Configuration Service (0x12)[edit]

Get XDR configuration[edit]

Purpose: Used at bootloader during initialization.

struct __attribute__ ((packed)) get_xdr_config_request_t {

	uint8_t id; // 00:2, 01:4, 03: 8, 04:10, 05:12, 06:16, 07:20
};
  • Clock frequency = core clock multiplier table[id] * reference clock.

Log Info[edit]

Each of the times a request is made that involves Auth1+Auth2,there is a communication made to eeprom for read/write. It goes like this (case for backup_srh):

  • Read initial 16 bytes of eeprom once (packet 0) (0x10)
  • Read 32 bytes following 20 times (packets 1-21) (0x280)
  • Auth1 established
  • Repeat steps 1 2
  • Auth2 established
  • Repeat steps 1 2 for finding key?/validation?
  • Validation/Finding Key established
  • Final Packet(s): Read EEPROM Location/Write to EEPROM Location/Do Other Tasks

Notes:

  • Initial bytes are constant and never change from phat to phat
  • Following bytes are perconsole (EID1 most likely)
  • Steps that don't involve sc auth1 auth2 such as reading eeprom using nvs service or checking syscon status (probably stored in RAM, because true value is in EEPROM encrypted) have no packet activity
  • initial bytes value: 99 D9 66 2B B3 D7 61 54 6B 9C 3F 9E D1 40 ED B0
  • we haven't tested bootldr init yet, but we think it might be different from the others...
