    I know right, the cat and mouse chase has been reduced to the size of a small kitchen.

    So all we need is to resign homebrews with new tools ?

    Probably because the Wii takes longer time on their updates and doesn't change a few numbers and release a fix every week or so.

    Look at the Flag...
    That was fast but useless, it's more for annoying people than really securing again the console.

    And actually all those firmware updates that gives zero to nothing new it's not good for the health of PS3's flash memory.

    They can issue as many updates as they want, but the flash memory can only be rewritten about 10000 times

    PS3 uses SLC NAND which has a 100000+ rewrite life

    You're missing a few 0's... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_Memory#Write_endurance
    They're usually rated to 100,000 to 1,000,000 writes.

    But either way, 10,000 (as you said) is still a lot of updates.
    It would take 1 update every day for roughly 27 years, 4 months and 2 weeks (27.378 years) to reach 10,000. Maybe the PS4 will be out by then.

    Is it possible to update a virgin PS3 to 3.56 and then install the CFW over it or would I be better off installing the CFW then doing the 3.56 update?

    Just an off the wall question.. but how much is the l1 and l2 code been inspected? Are we any closer to knowing just what data PSN is collecting/can collect upon request? I already am leary of CFM's changing the firmware version and adding -whoever to the end.. as that seems a simply way to track a customized firmware.

    Neither. If you want CFW just install kmeaw 3.55.

    I suggest people are finding out the progress and what is going on before making dumb statements
