This is very interesting stuff. Thanks for the article.
Concerning the Vita
correction: bootloader can be changed/updated/patch when sent to sony for repairs )
bootldr is writable (located at first 256kbyte of NOR/NAND) but restricted by hypervisor to be accessed when bootldr is loaded on the memory. Can be easily bypassed under Linux by mounting the dev_flash or the use of hardware like flashers.

Ok Guys here is mine opinion----it all "lie story"--about group that worked together and knew all the info ---including keys... Its all lie. Its all bull s*it story.
It all about money and interests...
We have ps3. Appeared hack for it in 2010y.. All of a sudden a lot of groups wanted to earn money exploiting ps3-users...
At first we had sellers of Jig-usb-sticks.
Then appeared 3.55CFW and almost all sellers disappeared.
Then Trueblue appeared on the horizon to feed themselves from ps3-users...
But here nodrm-group kicked them off because they did not like that ps3 has all the time usb-stick in usb-port....
I just think that ---Bluedisk---wanted to make money from people---or wanted to make some kind of affair to ps3-users..
But I think that we have "Very Secret Organisation"in the shadows--who watches what is going on on hacking scene. We do not know anything about this organization, it is like "Invisible Watchers"--who never has to show himself to the audience under no circumstances---lets call them ---"White Knight Organisation".
This organisation has no interest in making money---their real interest is Truthfullness of Hacking.
They just wanted to restore order on hacking scene. I believe they know all the keys, they know everything about ps3. They just not interfere until they see that it is time to interfere...
They called themself Three Musketeers just to disguise its real name and real purpose of all those actions-----but actually their real name is "White Knight Organisation".
Dont ask me anything, I do not know anything...Its just my assumptions.
Now about Keys...
So as I understand---from all those discoveries can benefit at the moment only users of 2xxx and earlier models of ps3.... And still we have problem to make ps3 give us ability to install CFW from official 4.21 and not from 3.55 like it now. in other words we have to discover what does not let us install 4.21CFW on ps3 running official 4.21 FW...
It is now very fashionable to say:
Wake me up when it will be possible to install on top of official 4.21 custom firmware 4.21....
Also the most hard part is hack 3000 and 4000 models---othrwise what is the point in all this hacking if only earlier models of ps3 can benefit from the hack?
