Na, The only way for this to work this way (guessing) is for it to keep a log somewhere its not going to be deleted, best place for that is the nand, where the firmware is kept.

If you delete manager and unplug dongle before you go online, will it still be detectable?
Ok, so let's say that it is detectable by Sony (even if you aren't using it online).
The biggest news to me about this is the ability to run unassigned code. So it still opens the door for homebrew and possible cfw right? Doesn't this still open up the system? Shouldn't the devs/others be excited just to finally be able to look in all the nooks and crannys of the PS3?
While I appreciate the urgency for running backups, I've heard almost nothing about any possiblities of homebrew yet. Hb could lead the way to much greater things (including running backups.. just look at the wii).
And so the other shoe falls. I was afraid this was too good to be true. Lets just hope that this will at least open enough room for further compromising of the PS3 to take place, and fully open the system to homebrew developers and end users alike. I for one will be disconnecting my 3.21 system from the 'Net to prevent any automatic patching while we wait for either a free clone tool or a super cheap alternative. I still see the potential for this to pave the way for a massive PS3 homebrew scene and possibly further system exploitation.
I'm sure hackers will find out how to make games stealth. The Xbox 360 mod scene started like this as well.
