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

#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

Example from decrypted lv0

Offset(h) 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F
000379C0  47 6E 6F 00 00 00 00 00 43 6F 6B 00 00 00 00 00  Gno.....Cok.....

Shr = Shreck (shr =
Cyt1 = Cytology (cyt1 =, cyt2 =, cyt3 = 083.006)
Cok = Cookie (06-2E)
Gno = Gnome. Probably the Zego BCU-100, references can be found in the 'try_cpbusy' script inside the CP update for the DECR-1000 (gno = 2.00)

Help Request

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)
