From Habib: I wonder why people took so much time to patch cinavia on bd and avchd (scared of sony?). Took me 5 min:
1. decrypt plugin
2. search for patch in ida (main part)
3. patch it
4. re-encrypt it
5. re-pack pup

I think rebug team is the only one who deserve trust. The source code of ps3 now is obfuscated since 3.6x, it means we have to reverse the whole code everytime a new firmware get released even just to check if something has changed.
If you don't analyze the code you simply can't check if (better say where) sony added new anti-piracy protections and this'll lead to bricks, not recognised hdd, bans...
Just to be clear this is a work that require MONTHS so if someone comes out with a cfw just a few day after the official release DO NOT TRUST HIM.
I agree with you, Habib never test his own creation of CFW !! not mention he forgot to include VSH, also he was claims his own anti-protection, we never knew, if it was the right hex code for anti protection.
