Sooo, this seems to be how this works. Sony makes games, encrypts them and sells them. True Blue steals debug eboots from Sony which are unencrypted, then encrypts them to work only in combination with True Blues DRM. Other companies copy True Blues DRM and sells them at a cheaper price. True Blue is outraged that someone is cutting into their illegal market and threatens users of this other product with catastrophic data loss.
Any way you look at it, that is extortion. There is zero moral justification for this. True Blues producers are selling access to stolen goods, then crying foul when someone copies their crowbar.
Sure, a lot of talk and no work ...
Which is for example the EBOOT REORC??
Deletes nothing, do not believe ...
I have heard of a user reporting he was using the JB-King 2.5, and his internal HDD was reformatted. In other words, it might be more than just a scare tactic, but infact a proper warning to users about what is already in place in their CFW.
This is pretty pathetic. Their shitty DRM dongle gets cloned because they failed to protect it well enough so now they attack consumers because they have no way of targeting the cloners themselves.
I'm betting this is their way of getting people to buy a "TB2" which will likely follow soon. How else can you be sure you won't get your HDD wiped? I'm sure there are a fair number of people who believe they have a genuine TB that have a clone. Who's going to want to take a chance shelling out $60 for a TB if they can't be sure it's original? The answer would be "buy TB2", it's the only way you can be sure.
TB = ****tards
Well, if they offer support for both dongle, that could be okay. If they do like PS3Break 1.2 did and only have certain things that work on the latest dongle, then that does not sound fair. I mean, why would they need to?
the TB fakes can only have 2.3/2.4 update (as JB2USB) so I'm sure they would know from the get go (won't work on TB CFWv2)

False. Sony and M$ will do this themselves when they stop used games on their next systems. Lack of vision and creativity are killing game development.

I gotta admit that I may be guilty of being a "giggling maniac fool" when I am playing a new TB cracked game! -- Sorry couldn't resist the joke! :)

But yeah, you know what messes everything up, including the game industry, the money.
I can see TB wanting to protect their and PARADOX's work. They do not have to release EBOOT patches, but they do. Why support the other guys, when TB/PARADOX is doing the work. I think if these other guys were actually releasing EBOOTS, perhaps they would not be such a concern to the TB, as it could actually help the market, instead of inflate it with more useless dongles.
If you have been around the scene as long as I have, then you already have a pretty decent dongle collection.
