To quote: Since I now have commit access (thanks to Lantus), I can drop the 'custom' label and instead give you straight version releases.
This one I committed today - it includes all my changes from the previous three or four custom versions including a ton of additional improvements - this CHANGELOG is probably not very decipherable for the average user, but I'm going to post this here anyway since it would take too long to create a new CHANGELOG:
144w ago - As a follow-up to our previous article on PS3 EU shipments being seized as a result of an LG injunction, today GamersDailyNews.com (linked above) reports that PlayStation 3 US shipments are also be on the verge of being seized.
To quote: "In the US, the International Trade Commission has agreed to look into the matter. Four patents are included in complaint and they cover both the PS3 and certain Bravia televisions.
LG is asking to ban sale of the devices in the US market which could provide extremely detrimental to Sony’s bottom line. While this is most likely a scare tactic to get Sony to settle, their injunction win in the EU seems to have emboldened LG and seems there is some truth to their claims.

So much for "unhackable" PS3s though... I am not giving any further details about it. Sorry.
Actually the revocation list exploit doesn't allow you to exploit isoldr, you could however sign a revoke list if you had the revocation list keys and knew the sign fail, and use that to dump isoldr. Metldr does not load revocation lists.
This has been tested, how do you think I could release the lv2ldr and appldr keys ? (about 24hrs before Geohot showed up with metldr keys) This has been tested, how do you think I could release the lv2ldr and appldr keys ? (about 24hrs before Geohot showed up with metldr keys)
