Even bushing from the Wii hacking scene agrees ([Register or Login to view links]), to quote:
The advantage of using the SX28 is that it can trigger the exploit a lot quicker, however, the patience comes into play when it doesn't actually work most of the time.
For example, the HTAB entries take around [51.748028] time was 0x12afa9, 0x1b per, 0, which is like 1/5 reboots.. most of the time its 0xfc000 so a a bit faster but harder to glitch.
In layman's terms, CJPC has done more button-pushing and PS3-resetting in the last 2-3 days than most people have in the last 2-3 years.
Actually, CJPC gets my vote for that... this PS3 exploit is SUPER annoying to get the timing just right so that it triggers but doesn't crash the PS3 (which means restarting each time).
