Update: Upon further experimentation, he has now found that if you put the original HDD back in the PS3 and reformat it, your streaming options will come back again- nice indeed!
We're not sure if anything else is missing yet, but it's interesting indeed and will be explored a lot more I'm sure. Another PS3 Dev (who has an Infectus installed) plans to try a retail PS3 Firmware downgrade using this "HDD swap" method, however, he doesn't advise anyone without an Infectus trying it as there is always the chance it will allow it (as it does the Debug FW) but brick the PS3 console in doing so.

You should know better than that... this is why most of the apps and progress made is kept internal among the PS3 Devs, and they only post screenshots in the news updates.
