Ok...Ok... -- I really truly getting tried of all these Master Key Threads!
But the only reason I posting this is because it is better then forever spending my day and nights deleting and merging silly threads regarding it, and even worse when people like x3MAX go and post a silly 20byte HEX string in a weird "secret" picture which by the way is totally against the real copyright holder and currently under review by the original holder for a DMCA takedown notice!
Now this key is totally different then the one currently used by all the cloners in the downgrader dongles, which all are programmed using the >AAAA device id key.Originally Posted by Mathieulh
But the only thing it is useful for is making your own new 20byte device id key, for your own custom dongle, which you have decided to have it outputting as >DEAD to the PS3, or >F0F0 incase in the near future Sony revokes the current >AAAA device id with the new v3.60 firmware coming out in 2011!
Merry Xmas Everyone!
News Source: TwitLonger: By the way in case people missed it, this is the dongle master key!
UPDATE: As for why, Mathieulh decided to re-tweet the original key found by Kakaroto back on Dec. 7th, remains to be mystery as it been confirmed by many developers this key can't be used to make other keys for other device ids, even tho it is a "master" key! It seems he has now admitted his "mistake" via Twitter.
