Besides, if you want to use the QA flag, you have to have a valid QA token, and you have to be on a specific firmware range. Now, whatís so special about the token is that itís generated in a funny way, I am not going to disclose that here. But, remember, PS3 hypervisor can also make tokens. But these tokens.. donít do /anything/ except just unlock the QA repository node.
Besides, the fancy menu requires a very weird key combo on the Sixaxis, and it only works on retails. On debugs, it just removes all restrictions.
Remember, the QA flag in Syscon also requires a valid token. (reiterated again.)
So, in the end QA flagging = (Piracy*Warez)++;. Donít do it.
What is a QA flag?
I am sorry for the unstable camera, I only have two hands and the options are hidden and require (along with the actual flag) a crazy button combo to pop up. (I kid you not)
Sorry I am not telling you how to do this, please do not ask.
Yes, this video is real
@dantezteam Itís an UNMODIFIED RETAIL FIRMWARE.
@KaKaRoToKS For various reasons, one of them being that you can warez with this, and the flag stays even after updating.
@KaKaRoToKS The QA flag happens to remove a bunch of restrictions that have the side effect of preventing you to warez.
@dantezteam The console is QA flagged, The firmware checks for this flag and will enable special features when it finds it.
@dantezteam Basically itís what Sony themselves use to allow special debugging on their consoles and loosen restrictions.
@KaKaRoToKS By the way, Advanced QA flag enables downgrading, just my 2 centsÖ xD
