Man I wish Mathieulh would just stfu, all we've heard from him is bragging that he's done this and that and figured it out, and it's nice to know it can be done but no-one likes a smart-arse, especially when they wont share.
Given the fact how Sony have gone hard after the likes of graf etc. I'm perfectly OK with Math doing what he does. It's his own discovery, and he's entitled to do what he wants. I'm also highly appreciative of the contributions that the devs make, despite many of these obstacles.
So this new dongle requires CHANGING our current CFW JUST so we can play SOME newer games from special BD-R from Indonesia. WOW, I'm not impressed!!
With our current CFW 3.55 we still can do a lot (Play Backups, Media Player for Movies from USB, PS1 games from CD-R Any Region, 12 Emulators for 1000's of Roms, Rip DVD and BD movies, PSN Games, Etc. And for those with backwords compatible PS3's you can play PS2 ISO and with Cobra you can even play them from USB)!
And the scene has been great and functioning well for the past 8 months especially that the devs worked on fixing 3.56 games at first then got to deal with 3.6x Keys and after only for the past 6 months. So NO HURRY - we will get our keys sooner or later.
For those wanting to play newer PS3 games released after FEB 20, 2011 when the new 3.56 FW came out and 3.6x, 3.7x updates afterwords, here is the list of 35 playable games on CFW 3.55 using eboot and pkg patches since, and up until today:
