PS4 1216 Firmware brick

Postby zakwarrior » Wed Jun 27, 2018 5:01 pm

Hi everyone,

So i just got this ps4 today and looks like a firmware brick, it's doing a blod with 3 bips
So i dumped the nor
Image

Extracted it to look it's content and got this
Image

I notice that it's coreOs is only 10 223 616 Bytes when the coreOs of a normal dump is 26 738 688 Bytes (all the nor dumps i got always have 26 738 688 as coreOs)
Image

Was wondering why and when i looked up some info about the coreOs i found that it was located from offset 3C0000 to 1D3FFFF and is 1980000 long (26738688)

So then i took the full nor dump and selected the bloc from 3C0000 to 1D3FFFF so i could look into of this ps4.
I found that from 9C0000 to CBFFFF (in the coreos file) is missing data
Image

Does anyone know if i can get this PS4 back working ? Can i inject a coreOS from a working ps4 of the some mobo kind and firmware rev ?

If someone wants to look into the dump of the ps4 you can download it >>>>here<<<<

Thanks for the help

you could try and patch it with a different coreos - let me know what it does!

if you need help patching I could do it for you

furthermore, have you gave thought to the dumping process being faulty? such a large section that is nulled is congruent with bad dumping.

also, what is with all the gear for flashing the chip? you went a bit overboard - have you looked at this: http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps4/SPIway

i just clip on to the chip, easy!
