    CJPC, I understood that if we upgraded our console, we're still able to downgrade this is good news for us, meaning we can still hold down our Other Os, thus we shouldn't worry to use the new firmware right?

    I think you misunderstood - at the moment no, there is no way (short of a legitimate Sony PUP) that will allow you to complete a full downgrade (CoreOS and all).

    Yes they are different! You can't install it becouse its CORE OS CHECK!

    CORE OS in Retail AND DEBUG firmware are DIFFERENT!

    So COREOS tha installed on RETAIL/DEBUG PS3 are checking every boot!

    I think yes. Would be nice if tools were leaked... like CEX,DEX and Dongle/USB Dump Common... leak it baby

    ^ with a little bit of digging its actualy quite easy to find... i even found download links in this forum...

    if people are really intrested in service mode i would suggest that you do a little digging there is little documentation on it but it is out there!

    the only problem that i have found with service mode is that we can't get them out of service mode once they have been put into it...

    I can assure you that what is out there is not enough to put a console into service mode, at best the stuff floating around allows for some basic diagnostics. Of which that software needs to talk back to Sony servers for some authentication challenges as Sony keeps a nice big database of Serial Numbers / BD drive #'s / Mobo #'s / Mac Addresses.

    grabbed off twitter:
    # @darknesssword you can use the exploit to load and use lv2ldr in order to decrypt lv2_kernel.self

    # @complex the method is either using a coldboot based attack or using lv2ldr to decrypt lv2_kernel

    Mhh, yes. It depends on which Dongle is used...there are different types of Dongles... like HASP or Sentinel... and you can BruteForce the WP key... but careful... some USB Dongles deactivates with BruteForce... Does someone know what excatly it is for an USB Interface / Dongle ?

    Does someone think about hacking and dumping the sql database ? No not me, i can't.

    But it would be useful to get this tools, to try and understand. Thats why i believe they should get leaked. More tools out, the bigger the chance to get homebrew running. I think i have to look out for that tools... i want to test something on my 60GB Some IBM Docs are out... but the tools for the service mode would be interesting.
