December 9, 2010 // 9:00 pm - Recently we reported on a 3.50 Firmware JailBroken PS3 x3Max video, and today PS3 developer xorloser has commented on the hack, as well as explaining why obtaining the hmac key for PlayStation 3 PUP files will not lead to PS3 Custom Firmware.

To quote from his blog, linked above:

"the hmac key for PUPs doesnt magically allow custom firmware. this is because all of the files that make up the PUP are signed anyway, so you cannot make custom versions of any of those files because you cannot sign them.

as for x3max supposedly working on v3.50, i call fake."

X3Max 3.5X Update

[2010/12/12]Last week the 3.5 proof of concept video was released prematurely. There has been a lot of rumors circulating and criticism from the scene regarding our 3.5 solution. Our intention was never to get the communities hopes up in order to increase sales. The X3Max 3.5 solution is real and compatible with all existing and future models. We understand the community isn’t looking for an apology but an explanation as to why we’ve yet to release the 3.5 solution.

We all witnessed how quickly the PSdowngrade was cloned – it’s crucial the same isn’t done to our 3.5 solution. We are now taking necessary precautions before releasing it to the public so it doesn’t suffer the same fate. Our group consists of experienced developers who’ve been involved in the console scene from the beginning and have worked on many different projects. The X3Max from the jump has never been about marketing hype but about pushing the envelope.

Without a doubt we’re going to continue to do this as the scene evolves. While many will label us as greedy pigs we’ve invested thousands into hardware. Truthfully as a business, one of our goals is to earn a profit while bringing the community the best development dongle that isn’t priced outrageously.

...Mathieulh, you don’t have to believe it, the video was made with a retail PS3 console. Expect the unexpected .

So they are claiming there jailbreak on FW3.5X is not fake at all .... Lets hope so

As you say, It doesn't even matter anymore cause if they release anything, the new firmware is 3.55

So this wouldn't even work.

It was made to prevent users downgrading to 3.41.

By the way do you really know that teams developing a cfw or hb or anything else for the ps3 do not use debuging to optain dumps or fw files? To assemble, reverse or hack? In case DA have not shared the source how you can say that he really hase reversed the whole fw and not only some modules that let you also do this magicaly tricks?

grafchokolo, kakaroto, DeLight do a really nice job to time and also always releasing there findings with source code and teaching us new stuff.

HMMM... may be, but we have had a lot of BS regarding ps3 up until now. That leaves me cautiously optimistic, but I won't hold my breath. Downgrading already hurt my ps3's Blu player. I have sent my PS3 to counseling for its depression and PS3's shrink says "That Your PS3 has been feeling neglected. It has been hurt very badly and is not quite ready to go through it again". .... Ha!!!

seriously though I will believe it when I see it. I hope this is the real deal though, because that is why I Purchased a ps3 any way!

I never have my hopes up until something is released! All the B.S about this and that, there is too much of it these days... Nothing is written in stone, remember that. When they say they will release this and that its all just to get people to "hype" things up and get some attention from the community.
