this is literally bad news for consoles that can't downgrade way to 3.41.
but if someone is able to make a homebrew app that can decrypt eboots using PS3 with these sprx involved and use them to decrypt the eboots, so everyone will be happy.
Why is this bad news? We may soon get 3.6+ support without buying a dongle.
Also, you can pretty much downgrade any PS3 now, it's called buy a flasher.
Have you managed to decrypt a single eboot then?
It doesn't matter what certs you have, any newer retail eboots have been encrypted with new keys, there is NO way to run those files without decrypting them first. The keys are NOT in sprx files.
To even start on a project like this you'd need an exploited 4.0 console taking RAM dumps and trawling through them, there is NO chance splicing together a few sprxs will make an older fw decrypt a newer eboot because the entire chain of trust was changed in 3.60+
Changes in firmware 3.60
Lv0 has now been changed, LV0 now appears to encapsulate all of the Loaders (appldr, isoldr, lv1ldr, lv2ldr). Now in order to break the chain of trust we need to be able to decrypt/exploit LV0 (or bootldr which loads LV0).
I would also like to offer my time/services as a beta tester. CECHA01 with 256MB NAND available with downgrade dongle ready to downgrade to 3.41 or lower if needed. PM or let me know!

If your under 3.55 you can very easily downgrade to whatever you like. I downgraded a console the other day to 2.30 then went back to 3.55 without any problems.
Its not bad for any CFW console. As they said its just a few files swapped to get games working so just replace them with the firmware your on 3.41 or 3.55 or whatever CFW firmware your on.
I knew it would be that easy but I don't know if replacing those files will kill it or not. If it doesn't do any real harm them I will do it manually as I like the CFW I'm on currently. I made it the way I want using PS3MFW and some things need to be done manually.
Yeah it isn't that easy, the loaders were all moved inside lv0 from 3.60 so without breaking the bootldr it can't and won't work for decrypting new games.
any news about 3.73?
but who cares if someone got them first... you can still get them, and you can get the upcoming ones too...
Wait this sounds nice but also wrong. The sprx's for the decryption is correct but in order to inject them on a lower firmware you need to decrypt them and resign them with for 3.55 right?
How you do it if you donīt know the 3.60+ Keys?
