Woods for the trees.
Guys the problem here is quite simple and histrionic diatribes such as this one miss the mark entirely. The 'scene' will continue to stagnate while it is fragmented. You have the majority of PS3 owners on the latest OFW having no access to homebrew or piracy, and only the hardcore pirates or homebrew developers remain on 3.55. The only market then for homebrew developers is a sea of pirates, a community which is unlikely to be as engaged or reciprocating as a community composed of both pirates and those purely interested in homebrew (and the many who fall in between). For most people "two PS3s" is not a viable option - or people wouldn't be compelled to pirate in the first place. Homebrew development will only be worthwhile with a dedicated user and developer community, which is impossible with the current OFW/CFW fragmentation. The dongle makers will always be around until this era ends, and words will do nothing to stop them. They are empowered to continue their nebulous machinations by the same veil of protection through which CFW was made possible. To make dongles redundant, and to reunite the community and reignite the scene, the only answer is a regularly updated CFW. It's not about piracy, it is about a userbase. The halcyon days of homebrew development were only possible when everyone was in the same boat. One of those boats is falling behind because the honest seaman are jumping overboard. It needs to speed up, lest it will be comandeered by pirates of the very worst kind.
