Finally, after a long period of a scene that got riddled by money hungry dongle suppliers we uncover this big scam and show you how things actually work.
First of all, none of the code the dongles use comes from the creators. All files used come directly from higher PS3 firmwares. This works by using plugins / SPRX's who are basically just drivers, from a higher PS3 firmware.
To get games to work, you need to use the files from higher firmwares, that games require. Those plugins we are talking about, also have the decrypt information stored in them that the games use to work.
Some of the newer SPRX's are compatible with older firmwares and can be used on older firmwares quiet easily. All you need to do is place them in the right folder and that's it.
Of course this procedure doesn't work with all the games quite so easy, some of the 3.6+ games load right away, others need some fixing. This fixing is done by patching the SPRX's to work with the lower firmware. Porting the drivers, so they can work with lower firmwares should be the easiest task.
Basically all this DRM does is nothing. The stick holds some drivers, like i explained earlier in this post, and lets the system use them. The HyperVisior LV1 Patches are nothing more then redirections to the USB stick / DRM fake.
The USB stick holds some dev_flash files, the system then uses. Its basically the same thing we did in the early stages of the Custom Firmware to load modified files quick and easy.
So after knowing all this, this explains why the dongles use DRM on their USB stick, simply to not let us see that they are really just scamming us with the cheapest materials they could find and some (by now old) dev_flash files stored in it. It's nothing more, and I'm sure that TeaM AC1D will empower more things and work on more in the future then the dongles have in last months.
We love Open Source and that's why we share this information with you. This needs to be stopped and we should all join hands to finally put an end to all of this. Use this information and do what you have to do.
Our respect goes out to Kakaroto, grafchokolo, Hermes, Deank, JaiCraB, Jjolano, Stoker25, Redsquirrel87, GeoHot, Condorstrike, Team Hades and everybody else we forgot to mention here.
Don't let yourself get fooled by these dongles guys and happy hacking to everyone!

This gonna be my only and unique intervention this way (hope that everyone stop insult any devs or users) i just leave you one stuff about the plugin/drivers/module that need to be load to launch a game. don't see any proof in here, just a better attention to the process.
Before showing my interesting quote:
Appldr is a app loader (you don't need to be a master of the PS3 to know that) also don't make any sense to talk about keys when this don't have any related connection to the appldr, that appldr just load what is need to be load nothing else, you need to watch somewhere else
Now check this that you can find on the Eboot.bin of the last games as you can see it show what plugin are loaded
Apparently most kiddies here fail to comprehend that we (the Staff) don't have time for this crap and it is not welcomed on our forum. I realize other forums thrive on such drama, but we are all adults here and have better things to do with our time than babysit.
Unless you are contributing to Team Ac1d's research by getting involved, posting files, etc you should not even be commenting in this thread... otherwise your posts will end up purged.
Finally, the latest updates from cfwprophet have been added HERE for those still following.
I really had to register and ask this question because it kind of important right now for me.
cfwprophet will this cfw will be able to launch games without a BluRay Emulation? Cause I got this really cheap ps3 a few weeks ago which has a broken BluRay Drive (the motor to spin the disc won't start) and I am very curious if I will still have to repair that or if its going to be obsolete.
Its coz the other scenes actually do things and not post fake videos and talk. They actually get things done. In the PS3 scene its all faked videos and all talk and no releases. The only time we get something is when its leaked.
The devs in the PS3 scene have to GROW UP and start releasing things so people can play backups. Thats the number one reason for CFW. Its not Linux or homebrew its backups. 99% of people with a console mod is so it can play backups. If it wasn't then there wouldn't be many modded consoles out there.
EVERYONE I know with a modded console got it modded just to play backups. Most of them don't even know what homebrew is and if they do they don't have any except for a backup launcher.
Thats why when I refer to a PS3 dev its usually HER or SHE as most of the PS3 devs are WHINERS. There are the good ones like team Duplex and it looks like Team Ac1d are also good ones but others like Math are not.
