157w ago - Earlier today the PS3Break PS3 Downgrader was announced, and now the x3Max Team has made available a video of their PS JailBreak clone PS3 modchip dongle in action running PlayStation 3 homebrew on Firmware 3.50 without downgrading!
To quote from kbx.org (linked above): I was talking to one of the support staff from x3max and they notified me about their new downgrader which they are going to release later today. They have provided me with a video which shows the x3downgrade. I will update the blog when they send me files.
Seems like they got an device which can run homebrew on 3.50 but i think they are releasing an downgrader as well as the support guy told me.
Finally, from the video's caption: The 3.50 firmware is now Jailbreaked, no more need to downgrade !
The dongle can launch homebrews on PS3 with 3.50 firmware, without downgrade !

Yep, all these companies buy and sell the codes as they are available... although unconfirmed, rumor on IRC has it the reason for the delay in a free solution is so that it gives the companies who paid the big bucks for it a chance to get theirs to market first as tryerps3 above also suggests.
So none of you noticed that there's the downgrader, and the hombrew enabler on 3.50... and they're all holding back on a "fully free" release because now the devs realize they can make some serious cash from being "sponsored" by an online modchip/JB/dongle store, hence the "waiting"?
