The reality of the PS3 scene: geohot is holding the entire scene hostage
The reality of the PS3 scene: geohot is holding the entire scene hostage –
Im going to make this simple.
Geohot is holding the entire ps3 scene hostage. Everyone is so glad that he did his CFW, but there are a lot of facts that are not common knowledge here. Let me get into them.
No one has the ability to actually write sony key'd packages. If you did, you'd be able to use them on kakarotos cfw which was just stock with install package re-enabled.
The reason for this, is because the keys to actually properly sign a package to look 100% identical to sonys are not possible, as a different group of engineers did that part of the security, and properly use a random, so that is never going to happen.
To fix this, geohot released his CFW that bypasses NPDRM and released tools to sign packages to work via this method and also OFW. Now, what the issue is, is he has the NPDRM keys, but refuses to release them. He used a exploit on METLDR and refuses to say how he did it. He then put out a set of keys for 3.55 and is having people use them. However, they are NOT sony signed. The digital signature is not authentic, and is 100% detectable by sony. They work on OFW 3.55, but come a new firmware like 356 or 3.60, they will not work anymore.
Geohot knows this and will be sitting on new keys to release to re-sign on new CFW, after he gets lots of attention and cries from people. So basically everyone is at the mercy of geohot from now on, because he wants the entire ps3 scene to kiss his feet everytime a new firmware comes up instead of releasing a proper method to work for all firmwares from here on out. Your XMB eboots will not work on 356 or 3.60. This was geohot's plan all along.
Also keep in mind, in the CFW, geohot put a message to sony threatening them NOT to blacklist the keys he used in future firmwares, or he will keep releasing new keys all the time. This is geohot's way of trying to keep sony to not screw up his plans. All of you guys praising him should realize how screwed up the situation is and how he is playing you for fools.
An interesting opinion........but i wouldnt go as far as saying it is "the reality" of the 'entire' PS3 scene.
It would only affect those who use geohots CFW and Sony's Updates.
