i was just enjoying a chat about red power, a lot of back and forth going on fake not fake, 300 dollars impossible it will be around 100 dollars one of the admins mentioned.
Not sur eif he is in on the scam cause that is what it is, so do not expect anything new fixes or dongle anytime before xmas we are in standby mode folks, there is several teams that are trying to become a whole new team together so they can be on same wavelength but some stay true to their original ps3 scene no scamming.
So wait it out gents it will be worth it, there is gonna be a big blowout next month just remember this cheers.
money is the root of evil in this. devs will likely succumb to them just to get some money rather than keep information like this free and open source. i mean, charging for piracy is the most ironic and stupid thing, yet people allowed it to happen. if you're gonna get something, buy the game and support developers, not people just looking for a buck.
this is not their job, but their hobby. yes, devs like deank and the sorts should but that's why they do this in their spare time and have real jobs. if they're respectable, they get noticed.
you can change it. convince people to not get the dongle or any dongle.
Dongles really hold back the scene and had us all throttled. If we didn't get their product, we were left in the dust. When their product had no use, they completely disbanded their product cause they didn't care about their customers, only profits and stopped supporting it outright. Hacking shouldn't ever look like there's a monopoly. It should be about sharing info or competing to make the most out of a product. It just was about piracy and profits, along with this product.
Multiman is at least way more than that. It can back up games, it can play them, it has a beautiful interface, it has a browser, etc. These teams don't really make much and just rely on other people's work without giving credit.
the closest thing i have to a dongle is an e3 reader, and that was only to save me from a semi brick. when humans try to hold information for the purpose of power it will always cause development to slow or even stop. but as the creator of whatever, it is and should be their decision what to do with it. its the outcome of their decision that they have to learn to live with.
Multiman is probably the best homebrew i have ever scene on any platform. but in order for Deank to keep it so up to date and current he has to make decisions all the time. hes already updated it to work with 4.25 so hes obviously had access to a cfw or a dongle in order to prepare multiman to be ready to work upon its release.
if he did release anything then the other developers would lose trust in him and then he wouldn't be able to keep his project (multiman) so great and current
Following up on the previous update, today the BlueDisk CFW Team (aka E3 Team) have announced that users will need to dump and expose your PS3 EEID (using the EID0.bin generated by their dumper below which requires using their DRM-infected CD Key scheme) and send it to them, and they will send back a 4.25 PUP CFW with strings (yet to be specified) attached so be cautious!
From cfwprpht: Lv0 is resigned and the most of you know what that means. But anyway something good, they don't have 4.00-4.11 priv key. They still use 3.55 but first we need lv0 static key or we find a other way.
From keytor69: CDKey app does perform a check online at 18.104.22.168.CUSTOMER.KRYPT.COM port 8090, notice the word CUSTOMER and not USER.. won't be long before everybody needs 4.30 CD Keys and then get to see the real cost of things.

We advise everyone to continue using the free CEX EBOOT patch fixes, free DEX updates or simply be patient until a true PS3 scene group or user cracks their useless CDKey protection scheme or leaks the 4.00-4.11 keys.
Finally, rumor also has it a free PS3 CEX / DEX CFW 4.21 will be arriving soon based on deank's recent multiMAN v04.07.01 Full (20121021) update so have faith in the PlayStation 3 scene and wait for free alternatives that do NOT require a lameass CDKey which should be a no-brainer anyway, eh?
Update #2: The BlueDisk CFW CDKey security protection has now been cracked by PS3 scene developers with details added above. Additionally an Italian site (mynewsportal.it/scena-ps3-cfw-4-25-bluedisk-rilasciato/) has released 4.25 Cracked, however, some users (with Flashers) have reported it to be fake as right before installation they receive a corrupt data (8002F15E) error.
Since then the the PS3 LV0 has been resigned and the keys are now available so it won't be long before free legitimate PS3 CFW v4.21 / v4.25 / v4.30 are released!
