If I had the keys I wouldn't release anything either. Make a release so I can get sued and a bunch of cry babies can steal Battlefield 3?
Talent is not something you gain by work, it's something you either have, or you don't. It really is that simple. You can practice to hone talents, no question; That way you become more skilled at what you do. If you don't have a talent for something, no matter what it is, or how much you work at it, you will not become talented. You will learn something, you will get better at it, but you will never be as good as someone who actually has "the knack" in that field. Mathieulh acts like what he is doing is easy, because to him it is. He pretends that everyone else can do it just as easily as him, while really knowing it's not the case, since nobody -- not even with hints and "help" -- comes even close. Talent is the reason why Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi make millions a year, while you (pressumably) and I, both play for Pub-Teams (think Bar, not "public"), even though we train as much as them (or in my case more, since I love football, and for years my life consisted of playing it for 7 hours a day).
What the keys are to be used for, is really none of my, your, or anyone elses concern. In the end it just doesn't matter. He doesn't need a reason to not release anything. I don't care if he doesn't, I truly, honestly, don't. I have a homebrew capable PS3, and one to play new games with. Yet I barely touch them anymore. If he doesn't want to do it, he doesn't have to. It's his work, he gets to do with it whatever he wants. But does that mean that I, as an objective onlooker to his persona, can't comment on it? No, no it doesn't. I call it how I see it. My gripe is with how I perceive him, through this interview. It's filled with contempt for his "equals" in the scene, and reeks of arrogance. Comments like "graciously provided," show unwarranted self-importance out the ying yang. Since when do people do this for fame? He speaks of amesia; is he afraid that people will forget what he once did for the scene? Back in my hacking days I would release an exploit, and was happy that I was forgotten within a week or two. The public will never kiss your ass for what you did. Never. If you wanted it any other way, however, you would do what you do for the wrong reasons. We used to hack because it was fun, a challenge, and because information was meant to be free for everyone.
We have a method to downgrade, correct. But it's complicated, expensive, and not very user-friendly. There is apparent need for an easier alternative. We used to have a cure for fever and other health related problems, it was called "bloodletting." It worked, but wasn't ideal. So people thrived to find better cures, and as soon as they found an alternative, shared their wisdom with the world, and brought the process along. Here we have someone that already is a step further, but wont share his findings with the world. It's not exactly the wished outcome. The way he goes about it, makes it all the worse.
Don't talk about getting in legal trouble, please. He's already taunting sony, and showed videos of him actually breaking their protection once more. That's enough for them to go after you, I would say. Furthermore releasing docs on how to circumvent the protection, described in detail without an actual automitation, can easily be released anonymously. There's hundreds of ways to do that. He wont do it, for whatever reason, which I am okay with. He doesn't have to, as, again, he doesn't owe anyone anything. But that wouldn't stop anyone that actually had the intention of sharing knowledge.
This interview, and further research, shows that this guy loves the attention. By the way, not wanting credit for help in scene projects, when you later on talk about doing just that, means nothing. Because this way you not only tell people that you help, but also try to make yourself look like you're being generous and "humble," while being just the opposite.
