    The USB Master Key of the PS3 has finally been found, thanks to the PS3Yes team. It has been confirmed working with PSGrade. Also Mathieulh has confirmed it with the following tweet (removed by him):

    Yet another fake Master Key?
    WiiBricker: It wasn't. It was leaked.
    EDIT: Seems it is real.
    O.P. They string is copywrited. Please remove it so gbatemp isn't shutdown.
    Remember people google is your friend.

    Currently it can be used to downgrade 3.50 systems. More isn't known right now by the public.

    Removed key as requested [​IMG] can't paste the source right now, 'cause i'm on my iPhone (kinda slow [​IMG])

    Ps: note that this isn't THE master key. It is the USB master key.

    Turns out its fake. The real key was obfuscated and people simply thought this was the right one.
