To quote: 05/23/2011 For Immediate Release: The beginning of dual-firmware PS3: PS3_Ed2.pdf The technique outlined in the .PDF will help people learn more about 3.6x firmwares.

The solution relies on the implementation of a second NOR/NAND Flash. Some technical limitations have been identified. But time will help us to remove them.

The information in the document is still theoretical for the moment, however please post results from your testing.

We believe knowledge and information wants to be free. Learn what you can and help contribute to making the PS3 scene a better place. Released by No_One.

This would be awesomeness. If only so I could cheat in Agarest Zero without having to shell out $20 for DLC.

He may have been speaking of the news from the upcoming (not released yet) JFW DH PS3 Custom Firmware which mentions users being able to access their own OpenPStore on PS3 CFW that will feature similar content to Sony's PSN.

If Sony's PlayStation Network was accessible again from Custom Firmware it would be major news all over and likely patched as was done several times in the past.

With this in mind, I've searched the news to see what allowed a PSN access but I didn't find it. Can someone bring me the post that permits this? And if I understand, we can now go and play online games with our CFW?

Thank you in advance.

Great, now sony has 3 weeks to find a briefcase and do a phone call, super.

Why would some one say he's going on a 3 week vacation on something like this does not compute in my head sorry.

Don't take it against me, i really... hope i'm being paranoid (or ungrateful)!

This method can and will only ever result in the discovery of public keys. Private keys are required to sign anything.

The public keys can be used to decrypt current games. You could add the 3.6X keys to a 3.55JB console which would allow the 3.55JB console to play 3.6X games.

Forget about a 3.60+ jailbreak. You are FAAR more likely to see a 3.55CFW with the ability to decrypt/play 3.6X games.

You will always need an exploited console (read: 3.55) in order to ride the jailbreak train.

Unless someone finds a REAL exploit in 3.6X+ firmwares a 3.6X+ JB is not going to happen (which this thread is NOT at all about).

Great news (Obviously!) But will this method work for future keys?

I wouldn't know. But most people just want to play new 3.60+ games like that infamous Portal 2.

If only it was that easy
