But, at least the fruits of your work would be helpful for others to take a look at, sure it does not need to be a public release, but it should really be seen beyond a handful of people, especially considering the fact that some of them are not the most skilled individuals around!
I mean - we have been working on the box for ages (from a different angle) with plenty of interesting results, although none as astonishing as yours. Most of our work has been on the development kits, which of course are not easy or cheap to come across. But they love to leave things live, like the System Controller's UART and JTAG lines - let alone other interesting tidbits.
In that, things of course get kept quiet, nobody can really use some of the stuff we found, like one of the PS3 TOOL's AES encrypt/decrypt keys, or commands to send the System Controller.
Nevertheless - awesome work, I know your not up to sharing your exploit, but, like myself, I know a few very talented people who would love to get a look at your LV0/LV1 dumps!
