Yeah, a MANolo posted this before in this very forum, but any proof has surfaced yet.
So just especulation for the time being.
Honestly I dont see what the big deal is about getting banned from the Psn, Except for losing stuff you purchased online, Besides that if you can run unsigned code I am sure that the Console Id is contained in the "Flash", So I am sure someone will just write some program as a console id spoofer.
Spoofing the Console Id before could not be done b/c sony uses SSL and TLS Encryption when logging into the PSN.
there is way to much speculation regarding what sony "are/will/could" be doing to users who use this device. the same thing goes for how the device opperates. one thing is for sure you wont be able convert a standard flash drive to be come a PSJB device.
unless people have any thing productive to offer the community, it might be best to just wait unil the devices are in the publics hands.
There is some special downgrade packages for debug and test units. Since the dongle turns the PS3 into a fully functional debug mode, is it possible to use the downgrade packages to, well, downgrade the firmware and/or fully convert a retail unit into a debug unit?
Would it not be possible to make a downgrade firmware work since it doesn't have to be signed though.
It can run unsigned code and it makes all debug options available AND functional (install pkg file will only work on REAL debug/test PS3's, not on pseudo hybrid retail-debug consoles). I'm pretty sure, even if it's not confirmed yet (I think), that the dongle was used in retail consoles and not debugs, or else it would be pretty useless for most of us as there was already a way of running backups on these units, although it required more effort than with the dongle.
