Exactly. Signing stuff as retail is a Holy Grail of console hacking. This is impossible to get this mastercode, it's like a myth.

Ok, that's dissappointing. Just seems a shame to have to re-invent the wheel.

Tell you what, I didnt understand a word of that lol, but these are some very very clever guys and the faces that we didnt see behind the scenes, hats off to them too. How funny would it have been if someone stoood up and asked when we can play GT5 lol.
Seriously though, its going to be a very exciting next couple of months.
Wait I have a question, with that new exploit, will we need to do any soldering or a mod chip or anything other than a device to jailbreak the system?

It's technically not an exploit and no it requires nothing. All you have to do is get the signed files on your PS3 and run.

block what? you can use a usb stick with a signed .pup and update, if the version on the stick is newer than the version is installed. It has always been like this. If you cant connect to the internet for whatever reason, you update that way. they cant just block that method
Actually, the algorithm is not broken at all; only the implementation is. What do you think stops Sony from generating a new set of signing keys with the RNG issue fixed, and installing that new chain on new PS3s? It's still broken at the app/game level since they obviously can't revoke those keys, but I see no reason at all that they'd need to have new consoles accept the current keys for the boot modules, since downgrades aren't supposed to happen and the new firmware would be installed at the factory.
yes. But as marcan tweeted, if they roll out new keys for those critical parts, EVERY piece of code they signed would no longer work. games, apps like netflix, gameOS,... This is because the signing we do is the same as sony does. So they cant do that.
As long as sony uses the present algo to sign code, we can sign it the same way. ps3 wont see a difference between a game a homebrew. thats the whole point of signing it, right? Dont get what you mean here...
those signed files won't be available here would they? because it would be considered sony code? and the policy at psx-scene is no warez etc. ?
Looks like 1 PS3 is all I'll need.
