Do I understand this correctly? Involving Keys
Do I understand this correctly? Involving Keys –
So this is how I understand it: With the discovery of Sony's weak security methods, hackers discovered the Root Keys and whatever else was needed to run unsigned code (or perhaps it is now considered signed?).
So this means there is not necessarily a need for a custom firmware on the PS3 since, and this is where maybe I'm wrong, you can run homebrew on official firmware since these keys can be added to homebrew?
And with the PSP Keys discovery this also means custom firmware is a thing of a past in that department as well since, in theory, homebrew devs could create programs that run perfectly well on official Sony firmware?
This would be great, as I would love to both hack my PS3 and get online to play games.
I know these findings are all very new and we are expecting some great stuff in the near future, I'm just wondering if what I've concluded is true.
Custom firmware will still be useful for getting the INSTALL/PACKAGES to work on the latest firmware and other stuff like .MKV support from the XMB or ISO loading (rather than our current files and folders method).
But other than that you are spot on. And regarding whether this is unsigned code. I like to think of it as unofficial signed code

What I'd really like is a true media center app, like XBMC. I've gone to 3.41 and programmed a Teensy++ for a JB, and held off on updating purely to be able to run homebrew code.
If it's possible to upgrade to 3.55 so I could use Netflix, I'd do so in the hopes that the root key disclosure means I'll be able to run signed homebrew in the future without the JB.
Thanks for clearing that up. I forgot that there's no way to install homebrew right now. However, it'd be great if you could use official Sony firmware so they can't block access to their network.
