Talking [working] psfreedom v1.5 with service mode (ie downgrade)

what's new:
before updating or downgrading read this http://psx-scene.com/forums/f6/warni...layback-72562/

STOP DOWNGRADING RIGHT NOW!
IF YOU WISH TO SAVE YOUR BLU-RAY PLAYBACK!
UNTIL A WORKING CONFIRMED SOLUTION IS FOUND!



service mode (ie downgrade) This will not allow downgrade from FW 3.55


http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14923408/psfreedom_1.5.zip

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14923408/psf...alt_zimage.zip

insmod psfreedom.ko jig=1 to enable service mode

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK DON'T TRY TO TEST IT IF YOUR NOT PLANING ON DOWNGRADING I HAVE JUST WIPE-OUT A PS3 TRYING IT OUT AND HAD TO REINSTALL 3.41
ps3 downgrade how to

1. start android
2. open terminal emulator (programs/dev tools/terminal emulator)
3. type su
4. type cd sdcard
4. type insmod psfreedom.ko jig=1
5. plug phone into PS3
6. Turn on the console using the same boot method as all other jailbreaks: Press power then immediately press eject.
7. ps3 turns on then off automaticly.
8. disconnect your phone and turn on console to make sure you are in Factory/Service Mode. You will see a huge red box on the screen saying Factory/Service Mode.
9. Turn the PS3 off again.
10. Load any blank FAT32 USB flash drive with 2 files in the root directory:
  1. Modified 3.41 PUP
  2. Lv2Diag.self (File 1)
These must be the only files on the USB drive and must be placed in the main (root) directory.
11. Insert flash drive into the last USB port to the right — the first USB port in from the right side if you’re facing the console. Turn the PS3 on and you will see a black screen but the PS3 HDD light will flash.
12. The process takes 3-4 minutes for the system to install the old firmware. Towards the end, the power button on the console will start flashing green and then your console will power off.
13. Remove the flash drive and turn on the console, you will still be in Factory/Service Mode. Please verify you have downgraded successfully to version 3.41 by going to “System Information”. Turn the PS3 off.
(Optional) – If you wish to downgrade to any older firmware you can follow steps 4, 5, 6 using any regular firmware PUP. (You do not need to use modified custom firmware now that you are on 3.41).
14. Insert USB flash drive back into your PC and delete the PUP and Lv2Diag.self file (File 1) and copy the other Lv2Diag.self (File 2) to the root of the flash drive.
15. Insert USB flash drive back into the same USB port on the PS3 and power on your PS3. After 10 seconds it will power off.
Remove USB flash drive and turn on your console again. You will be out of Factory/Service mode and back in retail mode with your chosen firmware version installed. You will need to go through and configure everything again — PS3 video, audio etc…

FAQ

do i need to Plug USB to PC and Sync my device (until the end of sync in pc screen)?
no thats not necessary any more

do i need to restart android every time i want to jailbreak?
no you don't once you run insmod you can jailbreak as many time as you like (just make sure your phone is not in sleep mode)

can i disconnect my phone after jailbreaking?
yes you can

What's the difference between "Hermes" and "PL3"?
I don't really know a lot about Hermes payload as i've never used it but some people say that it has better compatibility with discless mod however as i have never used his payload nor have i used discless mod and Hermes payload works only on fw 3.41

can i use Hermes payload with psfreedom?
Hermes payload isn't Natively supported by psfreedom but with a little bit of work it is possible see here

how can i use Asbestos?
see this

how repeatable is this hack?

it varies from one person to another. out of 8 tries "unknown USB device inserted" came up only once with v1.3 fw3.41

can i login to psn?
the latest build (v1.3.1) enable fw 3.41 and 3.15 to go online

is it safe to go online?
i don't think so, not yet anyway, you should wait until the hack is implemented correctly

can i use Hermes payload to go online?
yes see here

is v1.3.2 safer then 1.3.1?

no it is NOT

be warned that you will probably be banned and sony may break you ps3 use this with caution


USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. 2 users initiated the deactivation and could not perform reactivation. This does not mean it will happen to everyone however it should be noted we are on unchartered territory here. No one knows if or when this may end or the bans may come.

what are insmod, rmmod, lsmod?

insmod installs a loadable module in the running kernel. (to load psfreedom)

rmmod
unloads loadable modules from the running kernel. (to remove psfreedom)

lsmod shows information about all loaded modules. (to show you if psfreedom is running or not)

what is firmware spoofing?
read this


where can i find more info on jailbreaking?

How to




Extract the archive on your sdcard (replace zImage/modules)

boot in WinMo. (not necessary any more)

Plug USB to PC and Sync device (until the end of sync in pc screen) (not necessary any more)

Run HARET and let it totally boot in Android WITHOUT UNPLUGING USB FROM PC
Unplug USB


Switch off (back switch) PS3 or unplug if slim

In Android Terminal > su > cd sdcard > insmod psfreedom.ko

Plug raph/Diamond to PS3

Switch on PS3

Power > Eject

if works correctly When XMB loads, under the "Game" menu there will be two new options, # /app_home/PS3_GAME and # Install Package Files.

The .ko for 3.41 gave me an 'invalid module format' when issuing insmod...

EDIT: False alarm:: Must have been a copy error. Recopied, module loaded fine.

Testing now.

Works perfectly. I was a bit stumped to start...it jailbroke on first attempt (very unusual for me )...But then backup manager and openmanager would load, but weren't working - ie they weren't actually loading BDMV.

However, a quick bit of googling told me this was due to the move from syscall 36 to 35 - and that either GaiaManager (google) or the new release of OpenManager need to be used, as they've both been updated to use syscall 35 (from hermes v3 and PL3).

Installed GaiaManager - everything is working beautifully.

Asbestos how to

first you will have to read this

and you also need gscript to run this command

Code:
insmod /sdcard/asbestos/psfreedom.ko

cat path to stage1.bin > /proc/psfreedom/payload

cat path to stage2.bin > /proc/psfreedom/asbestos_stage2

e.g.

Code:
insmod /sdcard/asbestos/psfreedom.ko

cat /sdcard/asbestos/stage1.bin > /proc/psfreedom/payload

cat /sdcard/asbestos/stage2.bin > /proc/psfreedom/asbestos_stage2
a script + stage1.bin and stage2.bin is attach






thnx gwon for the feedback. forgot to mention the need to update the backup manger will add that to first post

Hermes payload how to
to use Hermes's payload you will need the original psfreedom witch you can find in this post you will also need gscript lite (can be found here or android market)
and the zImage and modules from psfreedom_3.41_v1.3.zip(they are already included in Hermes_payload.zip) this way you can have both pl3 and Hermes
now the actual how to
Quote:
download and extract psfreedom_3.41_v1.3.zip (from first post) to root of your sdcard (not necessary if you only want Hermes)

download and extract Hermes_payload.zip to root of sdcard (there should be two new folders one called hermes the other is gscript)

in gscript press Home Button add script > name it psfreedom pl3 or what ever >
in script box write
Code:
insmod /sdcard/psfreedom.ko
> save (make sure that'use su' option is on) this is for pl3 (not necessary if you only want Hermes)

in gscript press Home Button add script > name it Hermes payload or what ever >
in script box write
Code:
insmod /sdcard/hermes/psfreedom.ko

cat /sdcard/hermes/hermesv4.bin > /proc/psfreedom/payload
> save (make sure that'use su' option is on) this is for Hermes payload

(if you use the new keymaps then use center button instead of home button)

you can add all your script to your home screen by pressing the menu button (home or center button) add shortcut > gscript > (name of script you want to add)
those two script are already included in Hermes_payload.zip under gscript folder you can add them to gscript by pressing 'Home Button add script > load file'

to switch from one payload to the other all you have to do is run 'rmmod psfreedom' in terminal or write a script for it in gscript and after you run it you can choose the other payload with out restarting you phone.

FYI the command 'cat /sdcard/hermes/hermesv4.bin > /proc/psfreedom/payload' can't be used with the newer psfreedom.ko and that why you need both the old one and the new one

download link Hermes payload

hermes + psn patch (thnx to bigd5783 from psx-scene for providing the bin)


hermes + psn patch rapidshare



hermes + psn patch + 3.50 spoofing

hermes + psn patch + 3.50 spoofing bin only

be warned that you will probably be banned and sony may break you ps3 use this with caution

I can confirm it is working on touch pro with Froyo cyanogenmod 6.
But I think I lost wifi while upgrading to your version
