yeah but online players will be forced to update to connect. Whatever, pretty sure everyone knew online was never going to last for CFW. If you're planning on playing online you shouldn't be using CFW and if you're not going online just don't update
I doubt, there was many (if even any) online players with CFW anyway before this patch (Meaning indeed since 3.56 / 3.60 FWs)
Frankly, for existing games the "fix" is easy - simply don't update beyond the 3.60 encrypted patch - most of the fixes and additions are for the online play anyway and as you're most likely not using online it shouldn't really bother you.
I don't know about you but I think that it was rather kind of sony to include the 3.60 keys. that way hackers can decrypt them and use them to modify newer eboots for us to run backups with kmeaw haha.
