Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 10/29/2011

Last days i made a tech news about a new dongle jb2 that can play 3.60+ ps3 game, in fact, this dongle need to work with patched (by the team who created the dongle jb2), burned bluray game to allow games to work on ps3. So this is not really what people expect.
A BIG rumor about a Custom firmware 3.72 float around here… A senior member of claim he have a cfw3.72 in development with a video proof. This video is controversed by everybody claiming it’s a fake… We are all waiting news from the guy of
Wait and see… I’ll make TechNews post if a legit CFW is released… Again, sorry for my bad english, this is not my first language and i try to make it clear as possible.

The Scene Pyramid

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 9/26/2011

Situation: an English group releases a new movie ( DVDRip )
Take into consideration:
- In this example the supplier didn’t first drive home with the copy, but apparently uploaded from work, which is highly unlikely. But how long does it take him to get home in the example? 5 hours? 2? I therefor didn’t take it into consideration.
- There was no delay. Noone was busy, no work, no school, everything started right away.
Step 1. 0 hour.
A ‘supplier’ gets access to a new movie, he quickly ‘!dupe’ checks a IRC bot run by a friend of the group he works for. In less than a second, this irc bot searches for him the entire scene history of 4.5 million releases!
Step 2. 10 seconds.
He confirms the movie is not yet released, so he puts the disk into his pc and copies it’s contents to his hard disk. Once that is done, he starts the ssl upload to the private FTP of his group.
Step 3. 15 minutes.
The upload is done.
The group is notified in their private IRC channel either by a automated script connected to their ftp or the supplier himself.
A second dupe check is done to make sure it’s still not released yet, and the ‘ripper’ gets alarted; the race in on!
Step 4. 20 minutes.
The ripper FXPs/downloads the release to his ripbox, does a quick check and starts the encode.
Step 5.
The wait. It takes time to encode and you know your competitors could release it any moment if you’re in bad luck.
Step 6. 2 hours and 50 minutes.
The encode is done.
Sometimes the ripper checks for common problems like bad colors, errors in the sound, ghosting and other worries, but much more often due to the ‘rush’ to be first, he takes a 10 second peek and off it goes. After all, in the scene there is an advanced system to report and fix problems, something non-sceners do not benefit from, who usually remain stuck with the releases that had problems.
Now the encode is done, the ripper loads the file in the group’s auto-packer, which automaticly grabs the information on the movie from IMDB and automatically writes the NFO file while the movie gets packed. A few seconds later and it’s done.
Step 7. 2 hours, 50 minutes and a few seconds.
The movie gets automaticly FXP’d to one of the group’s ‘affils’ (affiliate sites), and from there FXP’d to the other affils. Since topsites generally aren’t any slower than several hundred Mb/s shared with only a few dozen others, and more often than not several Gbit/s, this aswell takes only a matter of seconds.
Step 8. 2 hours, 50 minutes and a few more seconds.
Final dupe check before ‘pre’, while watching the live announces of all and every new release in the scene, one of the members of the group writes the command to release, immediatly their auto-bot tells all the sites they are active in the release is now official (aka ‘pre’)!
Step 9. 2 hours, 51 minutes (What you expected me to write? ‘a few more, more seconds’? :p)
Tense? Now the madness really starts.
Right when the command is given, the bots on affil topsites send the command to all addpre channels on all nuke nets, dozens of bots add the release to their database, and within less than an second, the release is announced all over the scene!
At the same time, dozens of ‘racers’ spread the release to all topsites in the scene that want it at roaring speed, within 3 minutes the release is all over the scene!
Competing groups that lost the race by an inch immediatly grab the release to check it for errors to ‘proper’ it.
Step 10. 2 hours, 54 minutes
Final step for the group; they now grab their own release and check it thoroughly for errors. They do now, after it is released, because they already won ‘the race’ which matters greatly in the highly competitive environment of the scene. They also check now, because if they find problems, they can fix them themselves instead of having a other group release a PROPER on them.
Step 10. 2 hours, 55 minutes
Several of these topsites [1] are used by ‘leakers’ to bring the releases to you; they get send to their own private ftp and from there usually send to a seedbox on a private tracker.
Step 11. 3 hours, 10 minutes
Most private trackers now have the file.
Step 11. 3 hours, 20 minutes
Taken from private trackers like these, it starts to appear on Warez Forums and Usenet.
Also by now, the groups have likely checked the release for errors, and if there any problems, you might be stuck with a bad release if you never found out something was wrong untill you watch it
Step 12. 3 hours, 40 minutes
It starts to appear on public trackers.
Step 13. 4:30-5 hours
It starts to appear on classic P2P.
[1] Small sidenote: more often than not the owner of the FTP does not know of this behavior by one of it’s members, if they did most would stop it.


PS3 JailBreak for 3.50 and lower

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 6/26/2011

You must be on 3.41 or below to jailbreak with the PSGroove exploit (DO NOT update beyond this if you want to use this or similar exploits). You can downgrade from firmware version 3.50 or earlier by entering factory/service mode and using .self and .pup files which you can download

PSFreedom was written by KaKaRoTo to implement the original PS Jailbreak exploit, based in part on reverse engineering efforts by the PSGroove project.

How It Works?

The initial analysis by suggested that it was a Stack overflow attack. After further analist it turns out that this exploit is a Heap Overflow attack. The exploit carefully manipulates the heap by plugging and unplugging fake usb devices with large device descriptors until the device on port 4 which misreports its size to overwrite one of malloc's boundary tag.
1) plug device 1 then device 2 then device 3
2) After port three is connected, port two will be disconnected, this will cause the port two descriptors to be freed, which frees up some space between the Port One and Port Three descriptors.The heap is now prepared for our exploit.

Jailbreak PS3 on 3.55

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 6/26/2011



A new hacker team called fail0verflow was able to find a new way to jailbreak PS3, the team was able to make a small presentation at the Chaos Communication Congress which has been held in Berlin recently. The hackers team announced that they had been able to break PS security in a missive way.

Fail0verflow discovered how to calculate the security keys needed to sign off on any piece of software which essentially makes the keys to the security gate for the PS public.
Now, this prodigy hacker Geohot has released PS 3 Root Keys publicly on his own site beside thanking the fail0verflow team. He also encouraged them to contact him if they want their “next console to be secure”. From now on, developers can make their own applications, custom firmwares or even pirated ISOs without facing any kind of problems

How To: Jailbreak PS3 on 3.55 only

STEP 1: Plug a USB stick into your computer
STEP 2: Create a folder in the root of the USB stick called PS3
STEP 3: Create a folder inside the PS3 folder called UPDATE
STEP 4: Download
STEP 6: Move PS3UPDAT.PUP to the directory UPDATE that you just created on the USB stick
STEP 7: Plug the USB stick into your PS3
STEP 8: Navigate to Settings Tab
STEP 9: Choose System Update
STEP 10: Choose Update via Storage Media
STEP 11: It will say it found Version 3.55-jb
STEP 12: Choose OK
STEP 13: Accept Conditions and Install Update
STEP 14: After less than a minute, your PS3 will update, beep 4 times then shut down.
STEP 15: Power up your PS3 (You will have to do it on the console and not by the controller)
STEP 16: Your PS3 is now jailbroken!

How To: Install Packages

STEP 1: Plug your USB stick into your computer
STEP 2: Drop test.pkg into the root of the USB stick
STEP 3: Plug your USB stick into your PS3
STEP 4: Navigate to the Game Tab
STEP 5: Choose Install Package Files
STEP 6: Select the test.pkg
STEP 7: After it installs you will find the test package from geohot installed below the Install Package Files folder
STEP 8: Wait for more packages to be created by the PS3 community

Note: With the above geohot's PS3 jailbreak guide, you won't be able to play backup games or pirated games or whatever you choose to call them. You can install packages with the provided installer. More packages will be coming from the PS3 jailbreak community in the coming weeks and months.

The Masons and The Illuminati

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 4/24/2011

Freemasons first appeared as a science faction although they where devoted Christians they allowed free religion and fought the church's influence on science.At first they were a group of builders sharing amazing geometrical secrets in buildings (Their slogan) then evolved to a group of free thinkers and men of science who believed in freedom and in god (The Great Architect if the Universe). Their freedom influence was seen in the french and American revolution (Washington and Jefferson who read the Koran).
They are often mixed with the illuminati (the group who believes in a new world order) and world domination who took many symbols of the masons (like the all seeing eye and the black room during the first ritual) and even is believed to have infiltrated the masons lodges hence came the theories of masons and world domination.(Jeferson admired adam wisehopt the founder of the illuminati)

The Four Rules Of Hearts

  1. Get Rid Of Dame,Ace,King of spades.
  2. Get Rid Of Pictures with no long (small value cards).
  3. Get Rid Of remaing pictures.
  4. Get rid Of hearts.

Quantum World

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 4/24/2011

Those rules only apply on the very small and really they are beyond science fiction:
  1. Each particle exists in all quantum states until its state is measured where it assumes one value.
  2. Heisenberg uncertainty.
  3. Schrodinger's cat.
  4. (noein anime) an observer observing an event makes its probability of happening = 1 meaning it happens in his frame of observation.

Web Applications Terminology

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 4/11/2011

Web 2.0
Web 2.0 sites allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators of user-generated content in a virtual community.

Service-Oriented Architectures
(SOA) frequently pops up.Instead of developing tightly integrated, almost monolithic, applications, SOA proposes basing your systems on a loosely integrated group of services. These services are general in purpose and can be used in the context of different applications. An endpoint is the entry point for such a SOA implementation. Each service has a number of operations, each implements one action ,Designers can implement SOA using a wide range of technologies, including:
WCF (Microsoft's implementation of Web Services now forms a part of WCF)

Cloud Computing (Death Of the Desktop) Layers
  1. Cloud application services or "Software as a Service (SaaS)" deliver software as a service over the Internet, eliminating the need to install and run the application on the customer's own computers and simplifying maintenance and support, mainly the client is your browser.
  2. Cloud platform services or "Platform as a Service (PaaS)" deliver a computing platform and/or solution stack as a service, often consuming cloud infrastructure and sustaining cloud applications.It facilitates deployment of applications without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware and software layers,The Windows Azure Platform is a Microsoft cloud platform offering that enables customers to deploy applications and data into the cloud. Windows Azure Platform is thus classified as platform as a service.
  3. Cloud infrastructure services, also known as "Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)", delivers computer infrastructure - typically a platform virtualization environment - as a service. Rather than purchasing servers, software, data-center space or network equipment, clients instead buy those resources as a fully outsourced service. Suppliers typically bill such services on a utility computing basis and amount of resources consumed (and therefore the cost) will typically reflect the level of activity.

Skynet Doomsday

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 3/02/2011

Self-Unaware – The key component to a doomsday scenario spelled out in the Terminator world is the idea of self-awareness. Self-awareness is the idea that something knows that it exists. In science fiction, the consequences of an inanimate object becoming self-aware is that sees itself as an individual as much as a regular human would, going so far as to defend itself when attacked. Another key component is that it is able to formulate knowledge regardless of what its written code tells it to formulate. In other words, it thinks for itself. Any scenario that involves a situation of self-awareness would not include basic search and parse algorithms and a static data source of just text. It’s not even close to the same thing.

Nvidia 3DTV Play

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 1/05/2011

You remember Nvidia Vision which consisted of:

and a companion software with the Nvidia Vision Player and a 3D meter which can be adjusted.
But What if you already have a Full 3DTV what would you do ?? Buy Nvidia 3DTV Play with it you can:
  1. Play 3D videos without a 3D blue-ray player but only with a Blu-ray 3D player software because these GPUs support Blu-ray 3D playback with video decoding done on the CPU.
  2. Connects Nvida card work on a 3DTV withought getting the Nvidia vision kit enabling you to play 3D games not as good as playing games in semi 3D with the 3DTV only.Since the 3D effect is rendered by the GeForce GPU, 3DTV Play™ lets you increase or decrease 3D depth or turn it on and off in real time using keyboard hotkeys.
  3. Fully supports 3D video file playback from your PC using the NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ Video player.
So How It Works?
  1. Connect GPU to the 3DTV using the HDMI Cable
  2. Install the NVIDIA driver on your 3D Vision PC to enable 3DTV Play
    a)  Install the GeForce Release 260 drivers.  The GeForce Release 260 drivers include the core 3DTV Play driver features such as control panel, setup wizard, and game profiles.  
    b)  Install the 3D Vision Controller Driver.  This driver supports the 3D Vision USB IR emitters and Notebooks with built‐in IR emitters.  The 3D Vision IR emitter is
    used to enable 3DTV Play only and does not emit IR codes when 3DTV Play is operating.  
NOTE:When using 3DTV Play™ software to connect to a 3D TV, 3D Vision active shutter glasses are not used. Instead the 3D TV manufacturer's 3D glasses are used.
NOTE:(3D Vision IR emitter is required to activate 3DTV Play software on your PC)That's 3D vision specific. In other words to prove you are valid for the free upgrade you need the emitter. Those who pay for just the 3DTV Play software do not need it.
