156w ago - Since the release of PS3 Firmware v3.55 there is no sense in keeping the master key a secret any more - it has been released, along with unencrypted payloads, and a promise to release the source-code by PS3YES for a free PSGrade PS3 downgrader.
Remember PS3YES were the first to release that PSN Hack that lasted a week on their Chinese forums!
Also sadly v3.55 is out so you can only use this great release to Downgrade v3.50 or LOWER firmwares!
NOTE: Importing the HEX to other devices using current payload converters will NOT work!"

If I create a new profile the problem disapears. When i downgraded back to 3.41 all the profiles on my system were present but were renamed to *User 1, *User 2 etc. I renamed the profile I normally used, with all my game saves listed, it may be this that confused poor old jap fatty. It still would be nice to have a more elegent soloution but at least the downgrade path works and I am grateful to the those clever devs.
