A lot of Rumors have flyed around the Vitas Game Card. Some of them could be proven wrong with the work of motoharu which he released on Github and is available for everyone. One of thoes said rumors was about the GameCards pinout, which is also linked right down under here.

Pinout

Pinout
Pin Signal Description
1 VCC Voltage
2 GND Ground
3 CLK Clock
4 D3 Data 3
5 D2 Data 2
6 D1 Data 1
7 D0 Data 0
8 INS Detection Pin
9 CMD Command
10 GND Ground

HW Reversing

motoharus write up is simple to massive and to detailed to retype everything here. Instead we'll link to his github. We'll also fork his work. So if the site is someday down, call us and we'll fix it.


Game card is a standard MMC card. Pinout is different, however it complies with MMC card.

Partitions

Game card can be accessed with SceSdif module. It has the following partitions:

code type name desc
0x9 exfat gro0 Game Card
0xD raw Some data

Card initialization

Card initialization consists of two steps:

  • Standard MMC initialization.
  • Custom CMD56 initialization.

CMD56 is a command that is used to transfer vendor specific data from host to card and back to host.

Second step is crucial and is required to be done before host tries to read any data from the card for example with CMD17.

Standard MMC initialization

This step is performed by SceSdif.

Part1: Card identification (SD, MMC, SDIO)

  • 40 00 00 00 00 95 - CMD0 - GO_IDLE_STATE
  • 48 00 00 01 AA 87 - CMD8 - SEND_IF_COND
  • 45 00 00 00 00 5B - CMD5 - IO_SEND_OP_COND
  • 77 00 00 00 00 65 - CMD55 - APP_CMD

Part2: Card initialization

  • 40 00 00 00 00 95 - CMD0 - GO_IDLE_STATE
  • 41 40 FF 80 00 0B - CMD1 - SEND_OP_COND
  • 42 00 00 00 00 4D - CMD2 - ALL_SEND_CID
  • 43 00 01 00 00 7F - CMD3 - SET_RELATIVE_ADDR
  • 49 00 01 00 00 F1 - CMD9 - SEND_CSD
  • 47 00 01 00 00 DD - CMD7 - SELECT_CARD
  • 46 03 AF 01 00 43 - CMD6 - SWITCH (ERASE_GROUP_DEF)
  • 48 00 00 00 00 C3 - CMD8 - SEND_EXT_CSD
  • 50 00 00 02 00 15 - CMD16 - SET_BLOCKLEN
  • 46 03 B9 01 00 2F - CMD6 - SWITCH (HS_TIMING)
  • 46 03 B7 01 00 2D - CMD6 - SWITCH (BUS_WIDTH 4)

Custom CMD56 initialization

This step is performed by SceSblGcAuthMgr.

SceSblGcAuthMgr uses SceSblSsSmComm API to send F00D Commands to call Kirk services 1B-20. Game card can be accessed with device index 1

Initialization consists of 20 packets total. There are 10 request and 10 response packets. Each packet is sent or received with CMD56.

  • 78 00 00 00 00 25 - CMD56 (REQUEST)
  • 78 00 00 00 01 37 - CMD56 (RESPONSE)
