Or maybe some rich guy found a sony member / manager who selled him the encryption keys but also do not want to make it publicly?
I dont say that it is available for the community but i belive that some one allready have done the job.
And by the way... a dev ps3 can play games (e.g. pkg) from hdd.So game dev´s must have a tool to pack the data / iso to pkg. Or do you belive that they every day send files to Sony there for they will pack it for the dev´s?
There will be ppl out who well known about pkg encryption and / or have a tool. And if not this than there will be hackers with a DEV PS3 and DEVKit for PC and with this both things they will be able to build pkg files.
One of those
At this point it will be more importend to get the signing keys than to crack the encryption of a pkg file.
What will you do with the files of the encrypted pkg without the abbillity to sign the rebuilded pkg?
Or if i remember right than one of the dev´s sayed that the retail keys will be present on a dev ps3 and they will be also present in the newer FW´s.So why not Vice-Versa?
Meaning, maybe the dev keys are also present on a retail konsole. Becouse they do not produce two different consoles.The hardware of both are the same (a little bit different but not importend). So it only depends on the FW and maybe some things we dont know to this time, such as flags.
But since we have the newest flow rebuilder with ecc correction we are able to change a little bit the pkg´s in the fw.And ps3 needs a hdd to run but really importend data will not be stored on the hdd. They importend data are in the flash (older versions, since 80gb works different). Why? Becouse we could change the hdd, format it and use it. But the data what the ps3 needs on the hdd to run MUST be in the flash.
Some one tryed to swap the pkg files between a dev and retail console and fix the ecc?
