It's hardly as elegant as a buffer overflow. It's just not a very clean hack and if you botch this you can ruin your console versus, a reinstall of firmware or even a reboot. I would rather a homebrew enabler or buffer overflow be released than me bothering solder anything to my expensive consoles. Now if this permanently GAURANTEED downgrade and PSN I would consider it but since the hardware flashers can't even do that on their Xboxes they can take their trash back there to the 360 scene where it belongs. I am not saying that this particular device is good or bad I am saying I am against this type of modification with a passion.
EDIT:These things will always be great for recovering from bricks, but if this becomes like the xbox and gets patched... how easy will it be to recover from bricks?
