if u would read the post where the first cfw came out u would see that this it not the case if im not wrong. otherwise you wouldnt have to repackage all the homebrew because they are unsigned code

What I mean is that they have the masterkey, can control en brew anything they want. So if they want a firmware that runs a "Micheal Jackson"-signed brew only, they could.
For that matter, they can create a cfm that runs anything. Signed and unsigned... or turn it into a cappucino machine.
Personally I dont think they should work on a method to keep the psn function alive. Because Sony will fight against it sooner or later. I think we need a cfm without the ability of psn and being banned. Sony will win that fight anyway.
What I find confusing is why a signed backup manager alone would not work. I will try my best to explain and i am only putting this all together from comments and news over the past 2 weeks, if anyone can assist with this in noobish terms it would be appreciated.
Here I go:
The Jailbreak dongles tricked the PS3 into running unsigned code. Therefore the console would run anything so to speak.
Now, Sony's private keys have been released to the world. What this means is that and software that is signed with this key will run on any retail PS3 as the PS3 assumes it is signed by Sony therefore the console no longer needs to be tricked yes?
With the above in mind, if a backup manager was signed (by what the PS3 assumes is by Sony) then what else needs to happen? Would the PS3 not give the software access to whatever it wants (i.e syscalls etc) becuase it assumes that the software is legit?
The unsigned version seemed to get access to everything it needed when loaded on the PS3, why not a signed one? Is it fair to say that the dongle made the PS3 assume the backup manager was signed?
Thanks in advance.
My thoughts exactly.

I know how to debug, reverse enginner, create keygens, patches and etc for windows/mac systems...
In my humble opinion, (i dont know how the ps3 arch. is), i think that the dongle loads an app on ps3 memory and patches some address, remove some software checks, NOP some address, patch some JE JNZ to JMP, redirect calls...
So, if there is anyone interested in create an custom 3.41 firmware already patched (dongleless), catch the failoverflow, waninkoko, and all other tools to unpack/pack/sign firmware pups, decrypt those files, unpack, study the dongle patching code, patch those files wich you extracted, pack again, crypt(?) and sign the pup.
I dont support piracy (download games), but i would like to backup my games to hdd and play online. If is there some tool to backup the game to hdd, the game will only run if you had the blueray disc. You only can run the game if YOU made the backup of it.
hugs from brazil.
ps: Please, sorry if I tell anything wrong, its just my opinion.
ps2: sorry for my english. its not good at all.
Good enough. At least you have the decency to master another language (like I do)

The "big" PS3 hackers won't do something to allow the piracy. But someone did it to the iPhone, someone did it to the PSP and someone will do it to the PS3. I wish I have this knowledge.
edit: sorry bad english, i'm brazilian (another one xD)
Just one thing i don't understand. Custom firmware does not allow to play backups yet, right? can i boot CFW with ps3key to enable playing backups? s3up:
