    So $ony is lost now? We can edit the firmware updates and insert the payloads into that?

    If im right this would never happen if sony didnt touch/remove OtherOS, so basicly they destroyed themselves

    Yeah you are right in technical terms its inaccurate, however in the end the meaning is the same the random function is not random and therefore the key is calculable.

    Sony's RNG - Can't believe that, in the end, they got owned by such an epic human error.

    hmmm so essentially it would be possible to completley dump the GameOS (or modify it) to run str8 linux, & then be able to runs games from linux? if so that is what i have always wanted.....maybe somone could port one of the newer kernels of linux, that take the addvantage of USB disks as "system memory" (kinda how when you plug a usb stick in a win 7 pc, it asks would you like to use this disk to speed up the system (system cache/memory)
