    So this seems very promising. It continues on to say that the MultiMAN update hasn't been fully tested with the CFW yet, but since it hasn't been released to the public yet that makes sense.

    I'll be keeping a close eye on this one. ^_^

    Oh boy I can't wait for the shit storm this is going to cause. Glad it's coming from china, doubt sony can sue anyone there. I was just reading about this on another hax site I frequent.

    The multiman is ready to update right now but I wont update it until there is 4.21 cfw available at first. I understand that you must have 3.55 CFW for 4.21 CFW to work properly. Again, since he said there will be no need a dongle at all however chinese link said it is going to be one or might be. According to this: Red Power now called Blue Disk, DRM-Infected PS3 dongle required. *CONFUSION*

    well heres the reply about what it says

    得到RED POWER的人员回复—— 系统只能在3.55刷,刷机风险与3.55升级到官方4.21相同。

    Google translate didn't do a great job of it, but my guess is that there's a risk of it installing as 4.21 official and then failing the rest, thus making you stuck on 4.21 with no hope? Not sure.

    EDIT: Okay, so the iffy-ness of this is starting to set in. The YouTube Video they have of it running has a GLARING cut in it. 1:07, place your mouse cursor on the right edge of the screen when they're just about to skip the opening video. Then when the main menu of the game pops up, you see that it no longer lines up because they cut the video to a more zoomed in view. To me, this seems iffy.

    I understand that to play the intro video and logos it would have to work, but that cut in the video makes me think something's up. I hope I didn't post this info too soon. >.

    Still, blatent video cuts like that greatly reduce credibility nowadays. Especially with something as touch as PS3 hacking. Personally, I don't see why they couldn't just start over and make sure they got the whole thing in one cut, but that's just me.

    Ease your doubt and just wait. Right now, Deank is the faithful of Multiman so he said its real. He knows something that we don't. :)

    Its not mine.. Deank's Multiman is announcing and it's update is available right now. For me, I won't do it until 4.21 CFW is available first. :)

    I will believe it when I see it, on top of that it doesn't look promising if dongles are already being talked about.

    also this from PS3 hax:

    http://www.ps3hax.net/2012/09/some-problems-with-red-power-debunking-or-just-fighting/

    like I said it doesn't look good and it seems you have to PAY to use this new cfw.

    a new CFW? that's interesting, but it seems suspicious to me.

    So, it's not a real custom firmware 4.21.
    You can't update from any

    Yes cyan makes much sense.
    What I am guessing is that the exploit is used for the 3.55 to make the system "open". Using that hole other things (ie. 4.21 cfw) are brought in but keeping the hole intact. If you update to ofw 4.21, the whole is already covered hence the illegal goods cannot come.

    Maybe this cfw has integrated the keys and some features but not everything from 4.21. I think I remember them saying homebrew apps (others) don't work.

    wouldn't mind if a custom firmware turned up now. the idea of being able to run my own games off the hdd is appealing

    Even if you are able to install this from OFW 4.21, most people (like me) are on 4.25 now anyway >_>
