My personal opinions on this, is if they cannot get past the 3.55 barrier, then its already dead.

yeah the 3.55 does indeed makes this one dead in the water.... and i was right the device itself reads file system that's a nice thing... but meh... one point does bother me... how can this run ps2 games... its disabled in the system itself.. i know BC units do work but they are old... its not like cobra that runs payload and uses syscalls.. a pass through device only does so much but only to a limit its built for... and the linux thing... so it runs linux mounts image sends commands bridge redirects and ps3 reads... using jtag is interesting.... whats missing... for me at least... does it emulate the drive firm or it actually hardware... either one of them is kinda nice if you have a way of dumping it why not write it back to the original drive as well.. as long they both use the same flash type... heh thinking to much again.. lol :3

I seriously hope for it being dead in the water. This is only a piracy device, proving Sony right.

Xbox 360: Slim untouched with a faked 320 GB harddrive for XBL, phat with LT 3.0, played Halo early, so going on live would be an instand ban, also with a faked 320 GB harddrive
PS3: Untouched 160 GB Slim, 60 GB Fat with latest Rogero and 160 GB internal harddrive.
PSVita: hardly ever play it
GameCube: Black with a Viper chip installed. With gameboy player. Trying to get a Wavebird controller.

whats the point then.... if you stay on 3.55... you don't need this device lol... multiman with bdemu and a payload will take of it lol... now if youre on say 4.25 you can use this device... but then the whole 1:1 copy you need the original game... im pretty sure if you use the ps3gen you can build 1:1 copy of your backups lol... this device is not worth it if you use lots of homebrew... sure it can be ideal for DEX running games with less hassle but meh.. still not worth it..

but you wont be playing all the new games lol... not unless you install the eboot fixes... with a price of xkey its cheaper to do RGH lol... multiman is all you need really it has ftp built in so just upload the game into the hdd and run multiman then just pick the game from the list and play... almost the same as drag and drop... i never had a problem to ftp to my ps3 with speeds of 50-80mb/s on 1gb link using cat6 cables with a 1gb switch box or a 1000 base router.... playing halo 4 and forza horizon w/o using a single disk is great i say lol

showtime v4 can use usb... hell it can even run movies from media(cd/dvd/bluray).. you dont really need to upload it anywhere lol.... imagine all the porn collection you have with all them files just sitting on a single 50gb bluray that showtime will play once it inserted into the ps3 hehehehehehe "inserted" >_>

For RGH you need skill, for xk3y you don't. That's the only reason the xk3y is so popular.

im not trying to argue but price vise rgh is cheaper... you can get your xbox done for about 60 bucks... i used to do them for 50 bucks... lol... if you're quick you can do 5 to 6 units a day... you dont even need to hack the drive... you will hardly use it anyway... if you get it installed by someone id still prefer rgh/jtag

Yeah I owned an RGH Console that had the TX DemoN installed, and it was quite the unit! xk3y is just a little too expensive in my eyes, and I wouldn't mind having this for a PS3, but I have the superslim system now, and it's on the 4.25 Firmware, and I highly doubt it can be downgraded to 3.55 since it came shipped with 4.20.

Oh well...

Xkey can also be used online which for me makes it the better option :-)

There are even slim versions that can't be downgraded past 3.6, so I highly doubt the new superslim can be downgraded to 3.55.

The new super slims? They say to stick with 4.25 in case a downgrade is made for it but i doubt it.

if there was an option to bypass syscon we all would be downgrading ps3s by now no matter what version it is.. there's some progress made to be able to install rebug 4.21 on 25xx models using a flasher.... 3k 4k models still wont allow it due to metldr.2 and having lv0.2.... any model under 3k and 4k can be be installed with 4.21 cfw using a flasher as long its not having metldr.2 and lv0.2 and under 4.21 as base fw...
