that's pretty sweet. Only 1 problem... I'm not going back to 3.41. I hate messing with eboots. Sorry cobra, you're a few months late.

With the PS3 already being wide open, why would people PAY for something that will end up being FREE like the rest of the PS JailBreak and PS Downgrade "exclusive" features anyway?

As always, once it gets into the hands of PS3 hackers these new features will end up being ported to existing JailBreak methods, CFW, etc.

there's no proof anywhere this thing even works let alone a single retailer or release date.
