I love when people say can't because in life almost allways you can no matter what it is as long as your smart and try.
I also just stated this... Try rereading my post... I stated that it is IMPOSSIBLE (as in NOT POSSIBLE!) to change the console key therefore if they by some miracle could change the bootldr they can go ahead and change as many times as they feel fit to. Unfortunately for them I still know my key and can change it back when the update is done. They cannot block this, it would require them to physically come to my house disassemble my PS3 and change my parts.
I agree it would be helpful, in fact after posting I realized the easiest way for us to get the 3.6x+ keys safely could be to enable dual booting because we'll have the ability to explore the 3.60 side of the boot from 3.55 side. Thus skipping the need to solder and edit from that end. Also if I'm not mistaken waninkoko released a flash creator that will create a dev_fflash (that will not conflict with dev_flash), I'm guessing that would be a great place to start
