http://ps3wiki.lan.st/index.php?title=PSJa...rse_Engineering Reading from above I see that this psjailbreak dongle exploits ps3's check for the original dongle... So is this or the ability to install backup manager blocked in 3.42 firmware? Some people tell that the bug that dongle exploits is inherent to the current hardware revisions of all ps3s... Is that true? If Sony patched the actual code that this dongle software exploits then how 3.42 compliant dongle will be? This time emulating the actual dongle with all the security stuff? If not than how they can market it offering compatibility with future upgrades? Even if they emulate the actual dongle then there is the possibility of removal of that feature by Sony, isn't it? edit: forget it, it seems Sony only fixed game os patching part of the exploit... actual hole in LV1 seems to stay intact... edit2: oops, complex... it seems the issue is similar to boot2 update released by nintendo.. Sony can update it but it's risky..
