hm, i don't think keys were ever leaked from sony. most of the time they were derived or extracted from hardware using various reversing techniques.
i am wondering how exactly did that happen now.
Yes now i can play like a boss ^_^
Actually you can install modified PUP files for firmware 3.56+ with one important caveat - you can only do it once.

So you can create a custom 3.60 PUP using the existing tools, and you can install it on top of 3.55, and then you can only install OFW after that because we don't know how to create these signatures, yet. These keys may help the effort to figure out what's going on in more modern OFW, and how to fool the new PUP installer.
(Note that when I say custom 3.60 PUP I don't mean in the sense of a CFW like kmeaw, because I don't think the firmware has been deciphered to that extent to enable the scene devs to run unsigned code, but you can do things like replace the SSL certificates and then get annoyed because you accidentally used a 3.60 based fw to make your mfw and ruined your hacked ps3...)
so if people start uploading these fixes to places... they would work? or is it per console,
ive had rebug for over a year now and had a trueblue(bricked)... so now i bought an jtag xbox to play some games... but now does this mean i can play?
Yes, the private keys were changed in firmware 3.56, and the bug was fixed.

I see. I didnt know that, thanks

its not piracy if you dont own a sword or a parrot
from the initial comments, i can assume that these keys will not decrypt a 3.60+ game, so thanks anyways, iŽll stick to my other methods in the meantime.
lets see how this develops and what can be done with it. If not, all we have to do is wait for E3 to release the keys for higher FW and start modifying the eboots (if what they claim is real and there is no catch)
You assume wrong. You can indeed decrypt 3.6 games.
