63w ago - Following up on yesterday's update, today we are saddened to report that Duowan editor ShouFaDi (aka The First Emperor) has now updated his post stating that Red Power is now being called Blue Disk, and that a DRM-infected PS3 USB dongle will be required to use their Custom Firmware (CFW) version 4.21 unfortunately.
Below is the update, roughly translated to quote: "The group changed its name to Blue Disk, and declared that a USB dongle with a system may use personal guess Unplugged dongle may get in his CFW the Well when songce said not sell dongles, now renamed the idea to sell the dongle I swear.
I really do not know before sell dongle, but the host songce no dongle and I swear that in addition to the received outside the of the team songce host, no charge other belongings, and even water did not take a sip! And drove past their city's oil money or Ida dig orz
In fact, to be honest, not to mention being like crack as a PS3 lovers to hear messages like natural new crack will be very excited, even if it went to another city to pick up samples also nothing to complain.
Not to mention the other also specialized exclusive news but as write such sentences play a multi-media platform, new message, new dongle, as long as the evaluation of the value of the same will do just seize the fear of some people with ulterior motives rival station vulnerability, incitement Member denigrate the next.
Members looked decided it... my posts anyway, only to ensure that it wants to bring an objective evaluation..."
Current Developments for PSN Compatibility:
The team is currently testing PSN access on their console. From there testing REACTPSN isnt compatable with the CFW and gives the error 80029514 when you try to connect to PSN using the FTP exploit. FckPSN logs onto the PSN Store but gives you 80710A06 error if you try to login with a PSN ID but allows you to create the account.
Some more roughly translated updates are also posted HERE for those interested with a better translation by itsbighead available as well. Also The First Emperor went on a bit further to apologize for duping his viewers here (bbs.duowan.com/thread-28977354-1-1.html), to quote roughly translated:
"Again - I mean swear to God, I really do not know before is to sell the dongle, but the host songce no dongle and I swear that in addition to the received outside the of the team songce host, no charge other belongings, did not even water to drink! Drove past the oil money in their city or Ida dig orz
In fact, to be honest, not to mention being "like crack as a PS3 lovers, hear a message like new crack will naturally very excited, even if it went to another city to pick up samples no complaints not to mention the other also specifically said to exclusive news and as a multi-play media platform, new messages even if it is a new dongle, as long as the evaluation of the value of the same will be done.
Write such a passage is just afraid to seize the vulnerability of some people with ulterior motives rival station, incitement Member defame the next.
Then, Blue Disk (RED POWER) discussion, vent it in this post reply: Blue Disk (RED POWER) prohibit new open new topic related no open posts necessary (and decided by the Moderator whether there is necessary to start a topic), and offenders delete, gag those without treatment - whether it is praise or scolding equally.
To show our appreciation for everyone's enthusiasm and concern, we've decided to work with our distributor at taobao (Chinese equivalent of Ebay - olygame.taobao.com) to bring you firmware update service at a super low price 98 RMB (around 15USD). To express our gratitude to our dear users, we've also decided to offer an upgrade from BDCFW 4.21 to BDCFW 4.25 for free.
Features of CFW 4.25:
1: Support games up to 4.25. No eboot fix is needed. Get original game backup and play right away.
2: Support PSN
3: Support internal and external HDD.
4: You can downgrade to 3.55 , or update to latest OFW in the future and then later newer CFW (upgraded via PUP file on USB, no hardware modification)
5: No external USB device is needed to boot BDCFW 4.25
This leaves open (2) potential scenarios to explore, as follows:
Once word spread of the Red Power Team's PS3 4.21 CFW, the folks behind the useless Cobra / True Blue dongles cut a deal with the Chinese to wrap their code into another for-profit dongle (which was also done with PS Downgrade, followed by the useless dongle files being leaked, converted to hex, and ported even more for free!)
This was just another marketing scheme perpetuated by the con-artists to get some free publicity all along, similar to what was done when the PS3 JB2 (TB) dongle was first released announced... only this time it was done under the guise of a Chinese Team instead of an Indonesian Team.
In either case, it appears to be handled by the same group with the same devious mastermind and ironically (or not) multiMAN v04.06.00 already supports the new PS3 4.21 CFW despite deank previously stating he wasn't in bed or on their payroll even though educated PlayStation 3 scene developers such as CrashSerious saw through the obvious smokescreen and knew better all along.
Finally, a brief PSA (common sense really, eh?): It's important not to let hypocritical scam-artists take advantage of you, a perfect example would be sites riddled with paid sidebar affiliate links peddling dongles who claim they stand for open-source while directly profiting off DRM-riddled dongle sales at the same time.
Contrary to what they would like people to believe, dongles are only used to line their greedy pockets - no dongle is required to play PS3 games (as is evidenced when DUPLEXremoved the TrueBlue PS3 USB dongle DRM protection, by all the N0DRM releases, by the awesome PS3 DEX progress and when the Damage Inc Pacific Squadron WWII PS3 3.55 / 3.41 EBOOT Fix author openly admitted, to quote: "Everybody with a DECR and extra hardware to dump the RAM can get his hands on those decrypted EBOOTs."
There are much more important things to spend money on in life than useless dongles that will continue to be replaced with newer versions to maximize profits whenever the opportunity arises, so instead have a little faith with patience towards the real PlayStation 3 scene developers and before you know it everyone will be playing the same PS3 games for free.

checking aim, how lame... trolololo
oh.. take aim from their cfw
and place it to the recycle bin
^ that would be step 1
the most important
i don't have that
then grab aim from 4.25 ofw
i have /dev/null
that's good too
then you need some pup maker
e.g. ask kamel
you need to rebuild coreos pkg
and pup itself
man... all these clueś... are you telling us to get the cfw, and insert the AIM manager from ofw into it?
see.. im the best
this step will remove the eid0 binding
you guys are actually the best
but there is a problem with spkg
... Giving them your EID0 could give them access to your PSN account.
well I was just gonna tell you how to install it without having to send them an email, but meh I must be a fool
naehrwert> kids wont listen
nah i'm not interested
i just find the whole cdkey thing funny
yes its a bit different from what we are used to
but theres no charges for anything
not yet , its not DRM now so why is ps3hax portaying it so
hey bubba get around to making that cid yet
its me BTW
probably they wanted to to expand theyr beta testers army
i just extracted the new vfw 4.25 with pupview
Anyways. if you asked or are going to ask for a key
compared to the ofw 4.25
they send them around 12 midnight
allmost all files are recrypted it seems
mara they used static keys
they have the lv0statickey
except first 2 dev_flash_001.tar.aa.2012_09_07_142848 files
just woke up Ps3haxer33420
i would think they somehow hacked some boot files, dumped everything unencrypted, and recrypted it
i bey they use these eidś to crypt it with perconsole keys, so only the person on that eid can load the fw
personally it wouldn't bother me as long as they aren't charging too much. in saying that, there's no way I'm trusting this mob. when I saw that you gotta download and all that I thought "stuff that". I'll wait too.
I agree with you that this sort of stuff should be free. cfw is meant to be a combined effort to take back what sony has taken from us in my opinion. I think the developers should choose the developers they work with more carefully. choose a side so to speak.
