Question for anyone who updated to 3.56/3.60
Question for anyone who updated to 3.56/3.60 –
If you install this update over top CFW with installed homebrew, do the homebrew apps remain on XMB?
I know they wouldn't run as the geohot NPDRM pseudo-key they are signed with is blocked and we obviously can't patch OFW kernel yet, but do the homebrew icons remain, just that launching them obviously would fail?
Just had some idea with the talk of 3.60 exploits, and I remember with dongles if you booted without dongle your stuff is still there (and on the hard drive so would remain after an update), you just can't run it.
Which had me thinking, as geohot had said he had the real NPDRM key, that with the real NPDRM key (if we had it), we could properly sign an app on 3.55 CFW, and this app could have the ability to install more packages, that with this properly signed app/pkg, we then can install any OFW over top of our CFW and the app still remain. This would give us an entry point into that CFW (we still wouldn't be able to peek-poke without modded 3.60 stuff). But this seems like short of Sony making their updates seek and destroy apps upon update (with the real NPDRM key we could make new keys so a blacklist wouldn't work).
This seems like the easiest way into 3.56+ for now (though 3.56 and 3.60 are totally worthless now but future updates may be useful/required for new games). It has to be possible to get the NPDRM keys as geohot's signing key came from them.
I just updated from 3.41 to 3.55, and all the packages stayed.
Same here, but I'm wondering if they did anything to 3.60. Probably not as they'd have to put code into the update to delete stuff from HD (and stuff had stealth versions).

Codyqx4 you got a excelent point!
