The custom firmware released here is merely to enable the Install Package File on any firmware without the use of a dongle. It negates the need to run signed packages in service mode.

I think something different will come out to enable backup loaders and homebrew tho....something that wont even require a custom firmware. Then when everyone is enjoying signed BMs and homebrew packages...someone reputable will come out of the blue with a fully functional CFW, purely cosmetic.

I see that could be wrong, but now that 3.55 CFW can pkg install and may also have a master key, just supposed to sign a backup manager and running on the games?
Or elimination of the 3.55 jailbreak to run the backup to block?
It was literally a couple of games during the 3:41 screenes black and this is because the JB is a memory book from that point of these games should be. Now, if you have to go without a JB, then this problem would also be abolished.
So would it be safe to upgrade to regular 3.55 and play Brotherhood online? As I understand it, upgrading regular firmware shouldn't be an issue at the moment as they can overwrite it with CFW.
You can upgrade to 3.55 to play online but lose jailbreak at the moment. I'm waiting this out myself for a better solution. We're not gonna need jailbreak dongles here in a short while.

eah so i just tried it out thinking i could go back to OFW3.55 but no luck.. am i missing something here?
There is a perfectly working NTFS implementation called ntfs-3g that is entirely open source.
