dean has made small uninformative posts and many members have asked him to elaborate on his knowledge of the cfw but he has not responded to any of the requests, so either he knows nothing about the cfw or he can not say or is not willing to.

i suggest stop asking him and wait patiently to see where the cards will fall!

my brain is barely working right now... this is hard.

uhhh... i don't like this (what we're discussing). i can't keep a thought for a minute though. deank, you need to not surround yourself with controversy like with dongles. you gotta let out a few more words; realize this, you're like a president or a leader to the ps3 scene. when you say something, it's gonna get dissected and stuff. idk what i'm talking about.

For Deank to have developed the new version with the "Added support for 4.21 CFW (CEX)" he clearly must have access to the firmware, or at the very least have testers who do have access. I think it is safe to say this is legit.

From the changelog it is interesting though as there is clearly more than one 4.21CFW in development. I would think it is unlikely these were all developed independently and just so happened to be ready for Deank to add support at the same time. Presumably some new exploit must have been shared behind the scenes among a number of developers.

Anyway I'm sure if we all wait a short while these new cfws will appear

that is what is confusing and bothering me. we can't make assumptions here, cause then consoles can be compromised. i sure hope another wanikoko brick fiasco doesn't happen.

deank, do you trust this source? if so, that's great! cause i do trust you

Well guys you should update your multiman to the new version 04.06.00

It says:

  • Added support for 4.21CFW(CEX) (syscalls 6-10 required)

and some more so i wouldn't already run around and saying CFW 4.21 will never happen.. i would assume it will happen very soon if MultiMan adds support for it ! Don't you think so ?!
