Hackers haven't done much against them. They just reversed it and left us back in the dust once again.. tossing us a Tekken Tag Tournanet 2 fix and nothing else. I hope one day they'll understand how they're encouraging such cases with their 1337-secret brotherhood stuff.
DRMed dongle are produced because they know a bunch of people are going to buy those as no other alternative! There's still games that are unplayable on either CEX/DEX. About the latter..it's just a dead end in the long run, cause $ony will patch future DEX firmwares to not be installed on native CEX models.
Thanks junks278, +Rep and for the moment here are some rough translations:
1: Thank you very much and play more impartial evaluation of BlueDisk CFW4.21, Thank you very much concern and love of the domestic players.
2: handed with CFW4.21 the machine give multi-play evaluation, BD did not mention this CFW4.21 charges or not, so there is no cheating players situation. If so players misunderstanding, BD group apologize.
3: BD group before this not sold any 3.55 USB electronic dongle, please do not confuse the BD group and other bad manufacturers.
4: We understand that the players purchase 3.55 USB electronic dongle did not get good service and discontent, here we are ready to launch two versions.
A: subsequent update CFW version can not be upgraded, and can only be maintained in the current CFW version.
B: subsequent updates CFW version can be upgraded, we will adopt a free software upgrade to achieve free hardware replacement + upgrade purposes. We solemnly promise that will continue to update the CFW. The two versions BlueDisk are super cost-effective, and prices will be announced later.
5: the official release BlueDisk, there will be more surprises with the players, so stay tuned
A description of the doubt about BlueDisk
1: You can only apply in the can demote host, and upgrade from 3.55 or less. If the system version 3.55, downgrade to 3.55
2: Upgrade to the latest CFW need to disassemble downgrade again to 3.55 PUP way through the upgrade. Can upgrade to the latest OFW. Can repeated Brush.
3: Upgrade CFW bricked risk. (Do not power off during the upgrade process)
4: original games directly in BDCFW under through built-in or external hard drive to run without any modifications
5: CFW enter, BlueDisk removable, players do not need to have to keep blueDisk USB port
6: BD group will continue R & D to add more functionality to BlueDisk USB device, such as the players love the PS2 analog, standalone / network Goldfinger.
Yep indeed, and thanks for the updated translation itsbighead and +Rep!
The whole thing sounds like another MaxConArtist business marketing campaign with a twist of Chinese E3 added, and once I read "Pricing will be announced later" confirming their intention to be for-profit vs free to the scene I lost interest myself.
We will continue to post updates in this ongoing thread, but until it's cracked to play for free (as it should be in the scene) we won't be mainpaging any more of their hype/propeganda pics, videos and other crapola.
Nothing ReDRM is ever a step forward for the PS3 (or any) scene... why on earth not go open source so the community could make the most of such things, the reason is simple... greed and profit. However, once it's cracked/reversed and made free for all then perhaps... but by then it may be outdated anyway hehe.
