WHERE can I get those files from? PS3MFW fails as it can't find the files.

How do I extract them from the debug firmware? I have the debug firmware just don't know how to get those files out of it.

Even with a 3.60cfw you still can't play online as you need 3.66 or whatever its up to now to play online. A 3.60cfw will be to get around all the 3.6+ firmware games that are now out.

It's your choice. Either upgrade to play online or a cfw to play backups.

If you want to play online do the update. Even if the 3.60 is released SONY will eventually disable PSN access for it. You may get a week or a few weeks of online play and then you'll be writing here again "Should I wait or update???".

Not sure if it's the exact same, but the last Rebug update did include "Cinavia protection disabled" under the features listed. This is likely just "new" for those using the MFW app to build their own vs a PUP-released CFW.

Now this is useful!!

Can't wait for a good 3.55 cfw that makes use of this.

A second / used PS3 is the safest bet for playing online, this way you don't have to update your JailBroken PS3 to do it and don't have to wait for a new PSN hack to surface. Most of the PS3 hackers doing CFW updates also aren't into getting them to work online, so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for one if you play online a lot and miss it.
