This theory is supported by the fact that TB manufacturers are building a new dongle (with new security), there are two reasons to make this:
.- To protect his future firmware updates (TB dongle firmware i mean) from other clone manufacturers
.- Or they think his method has been "leaked" internally to other teams and soon will be leaked publically (or they have proof that can be reverse engineered from other cheap-security clones)
The first reason is good enought to explain this new TB dongle... but only if they have something more to add to the eboot.bin method to run newer games
But as i said... this is not a good enought reason for a consumer to buy the dongle, you cant say to your customers "you need to buy a new model because we want to cover our asses against clones"
Nobody will buy it, at least while the "old" TB keeps working (and if the old eboot method is released publically there will be more games working with the "old" TB)
But something makes me think the real reason is the second one, they want to move appart of the old security methods (reDRM)... because they fear a possible scenario where all the "second generation" dongles are hacked
