December 4, 2010 // 12:37 am - As a follow-up to the Infectus and E3 Card Reader PS3 Downgrader news, today the PS3 Break Team (and the PS3Key/EcliPS3 Teams) have also confirmed they have a PlayStation 3 Downgrader for 3.50 Firmware consoles incoming.

Below is a picture, and the announcement from their site, linked above:

Currently, news spreads on Internet regarding some brand dongle companies have capable of downgrading PS3 firmware from v3.50 to v3.41.

PS3Break dongle is ultimate testing. It will be officially launched in the next few days! please expect together !

So it appears all of the PS JailBreak PS3 modchip clone devices will utilize the PS3 downgrader functionality, and here is to hoping a free version also surfaces soon.

Rumor: PS3 Master Key / Device Key Finally Uncovered?

Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and drop by the PS3 Hacks and PS3 CFW forums for the latest PlayStation 3 scene and PS4 Hacks & JailBreak updates with PlayStation 4 homebrew PS4 Downloads.

I'm seeing posts all over the place flaming this guy so bad, and it's a shame. I wish the scene would be a tad nicer to these guys. Same thing happened when someone in the 360 scene figured out how to play AC brotherhood and NFS HP using any drive firmware and doing a dash and game update in a certain order which bypasses the AP 2.5 checks, while installing the required Kinect dash.

The guy posted in the forums and and there was a hundred pages of flaming and calling the poor guy an idiot until someone actually tried it and it worked. I was able to do the same process to my 360 and was playing the new games before the new LT flashes were released... and I don't even need to reflash due that exploit which was awesome.

I don't think this guy would make such a ridiculous claim unless he has it, and it's perfectly plausible for him to not want to release it, being the way he is getting flamed, so be nice people. He'll dig his own grave if he is lying

He didn't say he brute forced the entire file, he said he compiled a list of null terminated possible 'key sets' and processed those.

From the blog:
I didn’t use brute from 0 to FF^20. From the dumps I had made full of 20 byte arrays terminated by 00 I generated little more than 8,100,000 byte arrays of 20 bytes. That LIST was then transcended via the loop and located the correct key. Forget trying to bruteforce 255^20.. I would die before a key was found.

I'm not saying he did or didn't find a key, just stating how he claims to have done it...

True, but at least we get to play all these recent game releases requiring 3.50... not that we have a lot of good games since then however

When he shows it, what can we do with that key (Let the jailbreak work on 3.50 or make a CFW)?

I'll believe it when I see it. I think he's holding it back because he doesn't have anything.

It is not impossible, just very improbable. That, or sony, or the hacker used a string compare instead of a regular compare. (Nintendo did that for their code, effectively shortening the key to 4 digits, making it brute forcable). A regular compare compares N digits of a string. A string compare compares either N digit or up to the first 0 (whichever comes first, because a 0 terminates a string, not a key).

Take two values: (in byte values)

1: 01 02 03 00 05 06 07 00
2: 01 02 03 00 15 16 17 00

A regular compare will not match these, but a string compare will.
