      It is the hexadecimal number of units they must sell before they can break even and stop posting garbage all over the internet to boost sales. Put up or shut up fellas.

      I have ordered a dongle of x3max. I hope that its true what was told the last weeks. If its so is like to order much more. I think, when its true, their work vote to be paid. No matter what anyone else might say.

      I feel for you mini, but the best practice is to only buy things when there is concrete evidence of promised features and functionality. Lots of people make vaporware on the internets. Some of them even excel at selling it too.

      miniudavid, dont worry about the naysayers. Regardless of if they have 3.50 first or not (for if it comes out anywhere, everyone will have it eventually) your new dongle will be just as good as anyone else. The naysayers, just like a little mellow-drama.

      Im hoping these numbers lead to something significant. But, im fine where we stand right now on the break scene. I hope any new exploit is held out for as long as possible. I would like to able to play some of the great 2011 releases when its released.

      And we all know, as soon as any exploit is found, it will be patched in days/weeks, and sdk will be updated. And within a month all games will require an update.

      But I hope this is something good.

      I too hope something pans out from them. Breaks for future firmwares would be nice.

      Would these numbers be some sort of markers for offsets in firmware to allow our breaks to work on 3.50 (in the same way changes were needed to make them work on sub-3.41)?

      from ieder-zijn-meis on psx-scene.

      Try reading what I've said So far everyone is reading the sequence in left-to-right, top-to-bottom order (just like plain English) and assuming that's all there is to is. But a computer depending on the algo. used can make thousands different interpretations solely on a 4x5 matrix and basic XOR
      Remember the PS3Yes HEX sequence which first was posted as /the/ USB Dongle Key and later turned out to be unusable for PSgrade unless first hussled, XORed etc.?

      Actually I wished it to X3Max (and because they like 5x4 matrixes, they should have no problem reading it from a non horizontal reading direction )

      You definitive would need more than 20 bytes to enable anything like that (ISO-wrapper, Filesystem translation both need alot of code, just peek at the NTFS readonly sourcecode available for Linux,DOS etc. plus to have it loaded at boottime you'll need CFW )

      If you have followed the jailbreak scene then you would understand that you are posting rubbish. NTFS support is not coming and tbh not needed. ISO support? Well if you can manage to get an iso then you can probably manage to burn it as well, and guess what? It was discovered months ago backup disc could be used. Why would you need ISO support if you backup LEGALLY? Stop taking guesses and make relevant posts.

      I hope this means their close to releasing their 3.5x solution. It could be a spoof code for their solution you never know ?? i'm just guessing over here

      Just start your own PS3 hack site, this way you can write your own "useful" comments on your own site

      Hitler wasn't a Commy btw. Start learning something at school or something.

      Few things are truly needed, but the fact remains that dumping all your games to one single external HDD would be far more convenient than having to keep some of them in the internal one.

      Again, what would you rather have? Thousands of small files to manage, or one single file? If you need to use the FTP for some reason, it'd be much faster as well.

      FTP servers on the PS3 don't even use multiple sendstreams at the same time, but if it would, I rather have several small files than one giant one of up to 50GB to archive and transfer
      A few years back the same thing happened at the PS2 with HDL and there/then the solution used was to split the data to large to fit inside a filesystem block across several blocks (very much the alike with the split files we use with ComGenie/4Gsplit, Open Managers etc. - the only thing that is missing now is a way of transparantly mounting the splits as a single file to enable playability without transfer to internal)

      What I would like is a way to make sure the dump is correct and complete, like MD5/SHA1/HMAC_SHA1 etc).
      Not everyone has a bluray in this PC or wants to stress the PS3laser, so I guess downloading the games they have is a very viable and legal solution for them. With discless support, alot people with a broken bluray can still enjoy playing the games they payed for. For me every hour the laser isn't used, is an hour added/saved to the lifetime of my PS3 and an hour less my games need to be outside their safe archive environment.

      ISO support or burned discs have nothing to do with legality imo. Unless homebrew is made that is specifically made for piracy and piracy only (lets imagine a program with a search box with a large banner above it saying "free games" and when you fill in "Killzone" it downloads and unpacks the torrents of the game of choice) Even so, the enduser is responsable, you could never know if the user hasn't got a boxed Killzone.

      btw: playing burned discs, swapping etc. could be done years before jailbreaking showed up. There is no need for ISO support, you can just extract the files to a single folder and mount them.
