249w ago - This working of knightsolidus with me was supposed to be private, but now DemonHades leaked it and then Pirate posted it like a fool before work was done. We try to control it by put fake but now is too late -- THANKS FOR NOTHING GUYS!
This part is also lie, it was NOT EVER brought to public attention by knightsolidus: "knightsolidus stumbled upon this during his research and brought it to the public's attention."
He ask them to remove it from their page, they did not respect and post it more like basters!
Regard to SKFU, he is right in some parts.. I was excited of seeing new files, until I find they were only from debug like CJPC said already. Also, is true so far we only remove the HDD crypt so this not much help until file crypt is beaten.
All this is truth also of SKFU: You get a few sprx, rco and xml files, possible a few more types but those are useless unless you can remove the encryption of the file itself. But you can't yet. So the only thing you can do for example is getting the firmware part which is on the HDD. But these are only UNPACKED files, NOT DECRYPTED files. You may be able to replace several firmware files ye, so if replacing some text in the XMB or an icon is a custom firmware for you, have fun with the knowledge that this may brick your PS3 and is useless as hell.
Last, from now on knightsolidus work no more with them to stop such leakings from happen again.

IMO, custom firmware was the best thing that ever happened to the PSP and if custom firmware was done on the PS3 then that would be the best thing to of ever happened to the PS3 but I dont know how far we are from that. Only Devs with inside knowledge can judge how far we (as a community) are from seeing a custom PS3 firmware but if I had to bet i'd say that pretty far away
[QUOTE=PS3 News]I'd say he's hinting that a $ony leak of some kind would be helpful..[/QUOTE]
I'm glad you got that out of it as I didn't. And even now I'm not quiet sure what he would like to be leaked. If I had to choose anything it would be the signing keys for retail
Kind of sad to see how people will steal work from other just to get their name into the scene. I guess it's a good thing that the PS3 hasn't been hacked yet at it's current age in its lifespan.
After watching how piracy hurt the PSP, I don't want to see it happen to the PS3. Though I think closer to the end of the PS3's life homebrew would be quite nice. All in all just keep up the good work guys, and just be cautious about who you do business with.
