I think this dongle is real and what this development team has discovered is basically different from what Duplex team uses to decrypt games. In my opinion, the guys behind this dongle have probably found an exploit to get new 3.60+ keys.

True Blue PS3 JailBreak 2 (JB2) Payload is Released for Free!
Previously we reported that the PS3 JB2 True Blue Dongle was being reverse-engineered, and on this memorable day (11/11/11) PlayStation 3 scene developers have now released the True Blue PS3 JailBreak 2 Payload for free alongside an UnPKG'd / UnSelf'd version of the JB2 Dongle Updater PKG!
For those who missed it, the PlayStation 3 JailBreak 2 (JB2) Pin-Outs and Schematics were also made available recently, and PS3 developers (some of whom already have the PS3 3.72 Keys) admit it won't be long before the dongle is completely reversed.
Upon examination by PS3 scene developers, the True Blue JB2 dongle appears to be (as suspected) using PS3 Debug EBOOT files which allow newer Firmware games to run on PlayStation 3 3.55 Custom Firmware with the JailBreak 2 Payload essentially being an NPDRM Debug EBOOT file.
The UnSelf'd EBOOT.BIN Visible Plaintext reads as follows: "After the process has completed, your PS3 will be running system software version 3.55. After the update, your PS3 will have new features available and will retain compatibility with all previous software, however, you will be unable to revert either your PS3 or the dongle to an earlier software version"...
This appears to be a warning to those seeking to change PS3 Custom Firmware versions, however, as an interesting note from the Wiki (linked above) it used /dev_hdd0/vsh/tmp.bin as temp.
Although there is more work to be done, including dumping newer JB2 versions with PS3 HDD and Blu-ray support and decrypting the Actel Chip's True Blue 2MB Payload so that it can be ported to other devices, calculators, phones and older USB dongles as PSJailBreak (via PSGroove) and PSDowngrade (via PSGrade) were it shouldn't be long with the combined effort of talented PS3 scene developers.
Update: The LV2 dump payload at 0x7f0000 has now been decrypted for those following!
Hey fellas And right in time seems, on 11/11/11 hehe Tired to wait a METLDR miracle, i finally found on my beloved asian store a blue dongle..
Well, let's start talking about the size.. It's huge, and heavy. Sadly, was not updated, so just able to work with BDR. Seems soon my store will find an update for HDD funcionality, they are not so much interested on tiny boxes, too many troubles with those indonesian BDRs, and too many customers!. I tried to buy a BDR too, Resistance 3, but was a soldout, the only game available was GOW collection volume 2. Nah I can wait few days.
Curious: the owner told me i can play some games from hdd, with my dongle, either if not updated. Like MW3. I will try soon, if true. Obiouvsly you need the indonesian CFW, or your dongle will not turn on (seems broken, it's not) with kmeaw. I will update this thread soon
A more interesting update, is surely about clones And maybe the 11/11/11 real event The same store , offer me an alternative: a chinese dongle! Ye, chinese dump! It's exactly the same of True blue dongle, 10 dollar more cheaper.
Beware: the chinese dongle is exactly the same of the old version of True Blue, works wit BDR. Unknown if will be released an update for HDD backups for this curious dongle. I hope soon i will be able to make a picture of the chinese dongle, if my beloved store allow me
