Odds are when the 3.66 keys (if it happens since this scene blows ****) a dev will simply make a pkg or method to input the keys into current 3.55 CFW
The reason people wont make a 3.66 with the keys is because you need more than just the keys to allow piracy/back-ups/whatever you anti-piracy moralfags wanna call it, you need an exploit and possibly if someone is able to get the keys they may be able to make a CFW using that same exploit but that is NOT always the case.
Making a CFW involves more than just making the keys, you have to change the way the firmware works, disable security, etc and I'm sure Sony has put in back-up measures into the new firmware incase someone did just get the keys.
Is that a detailed enough description?
I agree with how you feel, I've been wanting a new CFW for awhile, and I agree with that anyone who doesn't simply doesn't get how important it is to the scene, I used to get flamed for saying the scene will die without the new keys and now...everyone says it and it's true but honestly...posting in EVERY news post about the 3.66 keys won't bring them any faster.
The sad truth in NOTHING posted on this site within the past 3 months has been news indicating that we are any closer than the keys than before except maybe the duel firmware and honestly odds are that that will only allow us to run stock 3.55 and 3.66/3.70 on one ps3 but it wont allow the backup of new games.
Basically, scene sucks, its dead we're ****ed.
We may get lucky and someone will develop something, but honestly the odds are slim.
It's back to 2d homebrew games pretty much.
My advice beat all your backups and upgrade to 3.55 sometime next year if there is no way to play new games.
If you're already on 3.66...give up buy a 3.55 ps3 or just give up on backing up games...its over move on.
If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything.
