The games are encrypted with the public key, and then decrypted by a private key inside the PS3 firmware.. Even if there was a key in the eboots (and there most likely is not), it would be the public key handed out to companies to encrypt their games. I see no reason that Sony would ever hand-out the private key that no one else than the PS3 should know (as only it should be able to decrypt the retail eboots), to the gamecompanies.
So then does that mean that if there was a key to encrypt the games then if you knew what the key was you could mod/hack the game using itself? I'm just wondering
