Flash Dumper & Writer
(thanks bguerville)

    v2.0.2
  • Updated To Support 4.85 HFW (thanks Joonie)

  • v2.0.1
  • Updated To Support 4.84 HFW (thanks Joonie and Habib)

  • v2.0
  • Freeze issues - Fixed
  • Occasional bad dumps - Fixed
  • No beeps & shutdown. Replaced by a graceful ROP chain exit & return to browser. This gives the opportunity to the user to dump after patching & validate the dump with littlebalup's py checker. As long as the user does not shutdown/restart, it's still possible to recover from bad patching.
  • Support for usb port 0,1,6 + sd/cf/ms cards.
  • Multi firmware support on all dumpers (4.10+) & DEX support on 4.81.
  • HDD editions for all dumpers & flash writer where a picture file placeholder is used for read/write operations.
  • Javascript refactoring for performance & efficiency.
  • ps3xploit.com will host the 2.0 update, no need for 3rd party sites.

    v1.0 (Thanksgiving 2017 Release)
  • Supports Direct OFW to CFW patching for All Phat and 2xxx Slim (minver 3.56 Dec 2010 and lower)
  • the NOR/NAND writer will just copy 3Mb of CoreOS data to both ros0 & ros1 in the flash memory.
  • There is only one version released for 4.82. The same hex patch file can be used on nor & nand.
  • It's as safe as possible, with a check for usb device & patch file making the exploit hang instead of corrupting flash if file is not found.
  • In case of corruption (extremely rare but could always happen), it's only a partial brick because no per console info ever gets erased so a hardware flasher could still be used if ever a recovery reboot was impossible.

  • Developers:
    #define SYSCALL8_OPCODE_IS_HEN 0x1337
    using this if return 0x1337 its hen
    ADVANCED POKE:syscall8(0x7003, addr, value);

    BDMIRROR:Managunz FTW!(please use Cobra payload because by default its MULTIMAN)

    NOTE:mounting dev_blind will actually mount dev_flash. change files directly from dev_flash instead or hdd0/plugins/CFW/

    Kernel Mode returns 0x53434500 on success to user webkit 0x8a000000. its good to measure HEN success. right now hen is already close to or is
