Sorry to sound like a noob, but what does Quality assurance mode allow us to do exactly? I know I won't be able to help making the app or anything, but I'm just curious.
To Sony claiming you can stick the Hdmi cord in the usb port and magically play pong on a 32 bit display is legally as bad as Pirating Uncharted (Joke lol)

Cant really be happy about this, not helping me i just like the Development and if he helped then thats SUPER!
Well yea your right there just to stupid and set themselves up for failure. theres Steps one could take to be completely anonymous from the Internet so they can do as they please with the slightest chances of being traced.
yea a list of what we could do would with a qa flag would be cool
Grandy you'll the man

i own a 77' Pontiac Trans Am. (PS3) GM (Sony) designed the Pontiac Trans Am. i paid for the car and now i own the car. GM decided that the 77' trans am should have a 403 in it. (OFW 3.61) i decided i wanted a custom 454. (3.55 CFW) i put one in and GM isnt chasing me down i can alter the design of this car all i want and still sell it as a firebird. in fact i am forced to sell it as a firebird since thats what it is on the title. granted i cant take it to a dealership and have them work on it because they wouldnt know what to do with it but they wouldnt sue me. also, for the sake of argument if it wasnt so old and the warranty was still valid i would have voided that as well. The car is perfectly capable of breaking the law if i choose (pirate games) but its not illegal for me to modify the car so it can.
that is a proper analogy for your modding PS3 vs cars argument.
oh and this next part isnt directed at you, but to anybody out there who used the modded ps3 vs the buying a gun and shooting a person with it. its pretty much the same correction. although there is a little more regulation involved in modding a firearm (for obvious and unrelated reasons) you are allow to modify a firearm.
But what about the claim being made that once youre QA flagged, you can update to 3.60+ and retain your flag and superuser abilities? Wouldnt that eliminate need for the new keys? Or is that claim just not accurate?

I know im not gonna be the gueniea pig for that one. I only have 1 PS3.
If you cant actually retain QA Flag after updating... cant even use this on CFW, only OFW... cant run unsigned code, cant upgrade to anything new, or downgrade to anything we cant already downgrade to...
I really dont see how this is useful. My hopes and anticipation for this are slowly receding.
And I dont understand why people who are doing this now, who have OtherOS on their machines... are giving up their OtherOS and reverting to OFW... just to do nothing they couldnt do already with their CFW and OtherOS.
Seems pointless. Except MAYBE to those who updated to 3.56, and stayed waiting for something like this... but thats IF it even works on 3.56, or will allow you to downgrade from that.
And if thats the case... this would only be useful to someone currently on 3.56.
Otherwise we're still on the key hunt. Which... means we're in the same place we were before all this QA flag hooplah.
And also - completely off topic... but whoevers mass negative repping me... for I assume my post about Matt... Please get a life. And get over it. Thanks.
Lol -56 rep, for defending a person. Isnt that something. Some people really are ignorant and intolerant. Guess thats what I get for posting here.
Any new findings is great but i believe more in the theory of using two nands with a switch. Nand 1 cfw 3.55 and nand 2 3.6x ofw. Possibly use otheros or a signed pkg dumper to dump contents of nand 2. The nand is setup as flash 0 to 3. flash 0 would contain the keys to the ofw and other impertinent info. Just an idea after examining the psp nand and xbox 360. Im gonna give this theory a try next month. I have already found a brand new nand for the ps3 same exact one found in fat ps3.
useless post –
go on sonys web site and look for someone who cares..

And Honestly you devote your lives to hacking the ps3?
it's sad that you and other spend so much time on this rather than having a life.
ps3 is fun sure, but its also fine the way it is, Other Os feature that has been removed (sucks i know)
but its for the better to stop game piracy, when people can run homebrew on their ps3's they can copy games. when good old george released His cfw immediently people wanted to try and copy games.
and sure you can say i dont want to pirate games i want to use hombrew and maybe you wont,
but there are people who will. front doors have locks to keeps Criminals/ theives ect out. i wouldnt ever break into some ones house why have locks? ... same thing.
GET OVER IT PS3 IS WHAT IT IS.
This websites not useless. Its use is to supply us with information and the newest developments in the scene. Which it is certainly doing.

Im happy with my PS3. My 3.55, homebrewable console. Doesnt mean I wouldnt like to push it further. I always do. Thats why I hacked it to begin with.
"Sony PS3 - It only does... what we'll let you do with it"
No Sony. It does everything im capable of making it do. And I intend to keep doing so, and adding to my list of things I can do.
