If you all really want a CFW that hard, start reading documentation about the Cell and find out a way of dumping the unencrypted bootloader. That's the main goal of the PS3 scene. And if this happens, then it is game over for Sony (until a new revision of consoles of couse).
But for now, I don't see anyone working on that. So, in short, there will be no CFW unless somebody figures out how to dump the decrypted bootloader.
Remind me again, just exactly why no devs are working on Lv0?????????
