0x6001 - Update Package Tophalf[edit]

  • The result of the request can be checked by reading the value of repository node ss.update.request.<Request ID> periodically

0x6002 - Inspect Package Tophalf[edit]

  • I have got access to this service through DM and tested it with PSGroove
  • This service can tell you if a package can be installed or not, the service just checks a package but does not install it
  • Packages can be updated without GameOS !!! I'm using only HV calls and communicate directly with Dispatcher Manager and Update Manager
  • I just sent a whole SCE package to GameOS through network, created a LPAR memory region and stored the file there
  • It expects a SCE package that can be easily extracted from PUP file
  • The data of SCE package can be passed either in SS packet itself or through LPAR memory of requester
  • When the data of SCE package is too large for SS packet (SS packets are sent through DM, GameOS and DM communicate through VUART that has only 0x800 bytes buffer) then the data of SCE package has to be passed through GameOS LPAR memory. The requester sends a vector of LPAR memory addresses where the data of SCE package is stored and Update Manager maps it into the address space of Process 6
  • E.g. Revoke List packages can be sent in SS packets because they are small (about 0x200 bytes). All other packages are too big to sent them in SS packets
  • The service is actually split into 2 halfs: Top-Half and Bottom-Half
  • The Top-Half is executed synchronously with service request and it sends a reply to the requester
  • In the reply sent by Top-Half a Request ID (8 bytes) is returned to the requester
  • Request ID is calculated by using SHA-1
  • After the Top-Half is done, a reply is sent to the requester but the service just checked some input parameter upto now and the passed SCE package was not really checked yet
  • The Bottom-Half is called asynchronously to the request, it does the real job, it checks the passed SCE package.
  • The result of the request can be checked by reading the value of repository node ss.inspect.request.<Request ID> periodically
  • I successfully tested this service with RL_FOR_PROGRAM.img from 3.50 PUP file and the service returned Success, so theoretically i could install this package on my PS3. But of course i want to downgrade and NOT to upgrade.

Inspect Package Tophalf Return Values[edit]

Error Code Description
0x00000000 Success

0x00000014 -

0x6003 - Get Package Info[edit]

  • I have got access to this service through DM and tested it with PSGroove
  • The service expects one additional parameter: package type (valid values are 1-9)
  • The service returns the version (8 bytes) of a package type installed

Here are the versions of packages installed on my PS3:

Package Type Returned Version Description Package Name in PUP File
1 0x0003004100000000 Core OS Package CORE_OS_PACKAGE.pkg

9 Invalid Parameter SC Firmware Package SYS_CON_FIRMWARE_*.pkg

Decrypting and Extracting Packages with spu_pkg_rvk_verifier.self[edit]

  • I have managed to decrypt and extract Revoke List Packages 3.41 and 3.50 by using SPE HV calls and spu_pkg_rvk_verifier.self
  • Important: Parameters to SPU module shuold be aligned, i used cache line alignment, don't know exactly alignment requerements. Or else some very strange things could happen. E.g SYSCON firmware was only partially decrypted when i used no cache line alignment.
  • I have also managed to decrypt and extract Core OS Packages 1.10, 1.18 Debug, 2.40, 2.80, 3.15, 3.41 and 3.50 by using SPE HV calls and spu_pkg_rvk_verifier.self but it's compressed with zlib.Update Manager in Process 6 from 3.15 uses zlib 1.2.3 inflate to decompress it after it was decrypted and then it stores the data to flash memory.
  • I decompressed the decrypted Core OS Packages with zlib.
  • I am able now to decrypt and decompress all Core OS Packages
  • The decrypted and decompressed package CORE_OS_PACKAGE.pkg looks exactly like it's stored on flash.
  • I also decrypted BD Firmwares BDIT_FIRMWARE_PACKAGE.pkg and BDPT_FIRMWARE_PACKAGE.pkg successfully. The firmware is not compressed.
  • I also decrypted Bluetooth Firmware BLUETOOTH_FIRMWARE.pkg successfully. The firmware is encrypted and compressed.
  • I also managed to decrypt System Controller Firmware SYS_CON_FIRMWARE_01050101.pkg from 3.41.
  • Core OS Package 3.50 contains a new isolated SPU module that is not contained in older versions. The SPU module is manu_info_spu_module.self.
  • Here links to PS3 Firmwares: [1] and [2]

0x6005 - Extract Package Tophalf[edit]

  • The result of the request can be checked by reading the value of repository node ss.extract.request.<Request ID> periodically

0x600B - Read EEPROM[edit]

  • I have got read access to EEPROM of Update Manager through DM and tested it with PSGroove
  • I read PRODUCT_MODE from it successfully, PRODUCT_MODE = 0x000000FF
  • The service expects one additional parameter: offset (4 bytes)
  • The service accepts only some predefined offsets
  • The service returns the specified offset and the value at this offset

EEPROM Offset Table[edit]

Here is the table of EEPROM offsets that can be accessed through Update Manager (3.15):

--> EEPROM Offset Table

0x600C - Write EEPROM[edit]

  • Writting to EEPROM of Update Manager is also possible through DM
  • Tested this service successfully with QA flag

0x6010 - Check Integrity[edit]

  • This service checks integrity of important files stored on /dev/rflash1, e.g. lv0 or lv1
  • The service is used e.g. by System Manager
  • When product mode is NOT 0xFF then check is skipped !!!
    • This check is patched to always skip, with 'nocheck' downgrader patches

0x6011 - Get Applicable Version[edit]

  • I have got access to this service through DM and PSGroove and tested it
  • The service expects one additional unknown parameter of size 4 bytes, it has to be 0x00000001 or else the service fails
    (sc863(0x6011,1,out:uint64_t,0,0,0,0,0))

Here is the return value:

00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 03 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01
00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01

BD Firmware Update[edit]

  • Update Manager in HV Process 6 updates BD firmware through ATAPI Interface of /dev/rbd0 device.
  • BD firmware is sent to BD drive by using ATAPI Write Buffer (0x3B) command with Mode 0x07 (Download microcode with offsets and save) and Buffer ID 0x00.
  • The current BD drive firmware version and hash is also stored by and retrieved from SYSCON by using SC Manager Get/Set Region Data (0x9006/0x9007) service. After successfull BD firmware update, Update Manager sends the new firmware version and hash to SYSCON.
  • BD firmware package is decrypted, SCE header size + 0x80 bytes are skipped and data beginning with copyright message is sent to BD drive.
  • BD firmware is sent packet wise, one packet is at most 0x8000 bytes.
  • After each sent packet, Update Manager checks the result by using ATAPI Request Sense (0x3) command.
  • Theoretically, BD firmware update can be done also from GameOS by using ATAPI interface of the BD drive.

Detecting BD Drive Type, Generation and Revision[edit]

  • To detect BD drive type, Update Manager uses ATAPI Inquiry command.
  • To detect BD drive generation, Update Manager uses ATAPI Mode Sense 10 command.
BD Drive Type Table[edit]

Here is the BD Drive Type Table extracted from HV Process 6 (3.15) / ss_server1.fself :
