Whether they like it or not, 1.1 will be in the wild so they might as well just come off it. Ironic that individuals who profit from a device that enables copyright violation (among other things) think they can protect their own software from being "violated" for open-source use!
Software which, I might add, was made using sony's copywrited sdk! (AFAIK) Sony couldn't stop the scene, they sure as hell can't either.
Why would they release the BL v1.1 which is locked to work only on the psjb devices... when no one has any psjb devices in their hands yet?
I have no doubt someone can RE the backup loader to unlock it for use w/ psgroove.. but why would the psjb people give it out today when no one has their device yet? seems silly I'm starting to doubt that any PSJB will make it to resellers.
Last Friday they confirmed they were shipped to resellers. As of today at 2pm EST , none of the Canadian Resellers received it.
I'm just going by what they have in their news section of their site, which says it would be released on or before the 15th.
It's already 1PM 16th now (USA East Coast), so either they had some problems with their "solution" or they lied to get more customers to buy their product.
If they are scared to release the update because the device may not be in everyone's hands yet, then they must be scared that it will be reversed to PSFreedom/PSGroove. They already have the old version on the site, so why not the new version?
At this point it doesn't look like spending $120 is a good investment in the official product, until they can prove the "future support/updates" they love to use to justify their price.
They must really be ex-sony exployees considering they offer release dates that get pushed back If you don't know when an update will be ready, then don't give a release date!
I just wanted to make peeps aware that there are a huge amount of scammers expecially on youtube who promise backup manager v1.1 up to Backup manager 2.0.
Just watch out as they are after your money or your details for email scams etc. Nothing concrete has been released anywhere yet don't trust anyone saying they have it or coded it themselves even for a few bucks.
