DOE = useless!
Up to now with the keys we always will be the newest CFW.
lets accept that PS3 is almost died. $ony is no more worry about Ps3 security, like whats happened with PSP. She is most occupied to make her new console.....
and again i will be forced to buy her next console to play GOW4 - Please end the history this time!!!!
They are still trying to cash in despite all the key and CFW releases? They must really want more money.
Most of us, obviously including me had the TrueBlue before the Eboot fixes. Its not about being penny-pinching, but as mentioned above, who would want to pay when its already free?
I really don't think they could come up with a way to work with OFWs afterall how can we install the Emulator in an OFW?
I actually like the 3k3y teams idea. They have a unique way of dumping the disk. My bluray drive is beyond dead to the world. I can't wait for more details. It's always cool having more than 1 option.
With the introduction of new hardware in a scene that for the most part has been based on free software one should expect some backlash, but what these ODE devices offer cannot be done for free and even if you made your own it would cost money. There is a very large difference on how CFW and ODE play backups and even though the end result might be similar the methods of achieving this greatly differs. If Cobra's ODE can be installed on any OFW then this would open up a gigantic market and an influx of new PS3 modders. If it relies on CFW like the 3KEY then it's doomed to only support the currently shrinking market.
If it works on any firmware the hell yeah!
However, I bought a Cobra USB and they are flimsy as hell. Lets hope they make this more sturdy.
for those ODE drive solutions to work you need to be able to downgrade your console to 3.55CFW for extracting the necessary keys - that's clearly stated on 3key web-site, that means if you're on 3.6+ OFW such solution is pointless, because if you can downgrade to 3.55CFW then you will just use the new CFWs, i.e. why buy both hardware flasher and ODE, when hardware flasher would be sufficient. also, that means ODE is useless for all PS3 units that can be downgraded to 3.55CFW, i.e. that are all PS3 units manufactured in the last 2 years. so, if you ask me the security of PS3 is still very good - in case you don't have an old console that is possible to be downgraded to 3.55CFW.
now we can play save online
But i you where online once with your cfw your are schruwt
Well they can create hardware device which you will need to solder to some points and you will extract key on any firmware--like it is done on xbox---so here i think wont be a problem.
The main thing is what is better CFW or ODE?
I think they can not exist simultaneously ---must be only one thing.
I talked to devs on IRC---and they told me 3k3y sucks.
So I do not know why they said it--maybe they like when ps3 has more freedom with homebrews.
Anyway---customer will vote with its own money what they want to have in ps3.
But the question remains open -----CFW or ODE or Both ?
