surely the psjb (or whatever finally gets released!) will allow for downgrading since it turns a retail into a debug (which has the option to downgrade) making the necessity to have an exact model with 3.15 becomes redundant?
It doesn't convert it to a full debug (hence the lack of Debug menu options), it merely allows for unsigned code to be ran. But as anyone knows, once you open the door, the flood begins. Look at what happened with the Wii scene after Team Twiizers discovered the Trucha bug and the Twilight exploit. Nintendo couldn't hope to stop it even if they tried (which they have, and failed. Miserably). I have a feeling that Sony will be in a similar position shortly, like they are with the PSP scene.
I gotta say, I think I'm one of the few people actually looking forward to seeing what can be done with PS3 Homebrew in the near future, and not just the same old generic ISO loaders or emulators that plague most opened systems (not to say I'm not looking forward to ISO loading or what not). With the power contained under the PS3's hood, the sky is literally the limit.
I envision in a year's time, there will be tons of progress in the realm of restoring old Fat features on Slims, RawkSD-like openness for Rockband-like games, media improvements, direct-to-disc BD Ripping of movies, and who knows what else. Exciting times are coming.

I myself am going to hold off buying a Teensy board like everyone else i'm going to wait until Mathieulh actually releases something and don't wan't to waste £25 on a board which i'll have no use if its not the right one and Mathieulh was just bs. I need hard evidence that this will actually work before buying anything.
The Teensy is a complete USB-based microcontoller development system, in a very small footprint! All programming is done via the USB port. No special programmer is needed, only a standard "Mini-B" USB cable and a PC or Macintosh with a USB port.
* USB can be any type of device
* AVR processor, 16 MHz
* Single pushbutton programming
* Easy to use Teensy Loader application
* Free software development tools
* Works with Mac OS X, Linux & Windows
* Tiny size, perfect for many projects
* Available with pins for solderless breadboard
* Very low cost & low cost shipping options
yeah i regretted rushing to get the psjailbreak. but that was only on the pretence that i would get it a week after i paid - 3 weeks later and nothing. all i've gotten is news on clones and now this.
if i've now wasted $30ish dollars on this teensy++ it's a lot better than the $170. i have no real regrets for the refund.
i have faith in mathieulh and if all fails, i'm sure there's a solution
NOW i can wait.
i'm in the same boat as this, i have money, and dont give to tosses about clones or free versions etc etc i just want the damn thing and i dont give a crap how much it costs etc cause for me its value is unimaginable in terms of what i can get out of it.
i'm REALLY EXTREMELY pissed off that its been 3 weeks since i pre-ordered (ordered it almost straight away as it came up) and now were seeing all this other crap come up and still NO DISTINCT word on when ACTUAL PAYING CUSTOMERS are going to recieve one of these things other then just "SPECIAL" people getting them.
it's really all getting out of hand, i was more then happy to pay the price for the original unit, hell give the guys some credit for figuring it out they deserve the money as far as im concerned.
but now with all this other crap coming out, its looking more and more like a big scam especially with the fact that both the jailbreak and the "clone" website are registered to the same person its just plain fishy.
all these delays, clones, etc is just ridiculous, its going to be good for the end user eventually, but i feel with all this stuffing around, sony will have figured away to stop it before people actually even get there hands on one.
hell look at how quick sony were to jump on putting injunctions on selling them down here in australia, they know the thing works or they wouldn't be doing that so quick. they will be hard at working finding away to stop this and by the time people get the units it could be to late.
