Exactly! Publishing information on how to run backups without a concrete exploit and way for us to run homebrew code will only close another of what few doors we currently have. Without a way to run homebrew selfs there should be 0 talk of backups, especially given the fact that you can't decrypt a disc with a retail console without first having an exploit. This is TOTALLY AND UTTERLY counterproductive to everyone.
I hope (an pray I am not the only one) to see all these posts and threads nuked by days end... the longer (even this small bit of info that's been posted) it stays up the greater the likelyhood that this door will be closed for good.
BIG BROTHER is always watching... and they roll out updates on a very regular basis.... so ask yourself if you want them working on security patches for things like this that leak to the internet,.. or if you want them working on features instead, and let scene devs work on their security in private?
My guess is most here would choose the more responsible option and keep everything private till we can take over this console and finally get the fun and homebrew 360/Wii users enjoy on a daily basis.
