Also, why would Sony put a firmware version check into the firmware if they did not care about downgrades?

Since you posted that sony doesn't care for CFW then the update won't happen so i will believe this when i see it. For the guy who posted above master737373 dude stop sucking up to people it makes you look bad.
*sigh* this is why I don't like explaining anything. I get attacked for putting knowledge out in the scene.
Hash checks have been out longer than custom firmware. There only a couple of thousand ps3's on cfw compared to the 70+ millions consoles they've sold. That's a small number. Again, they only patch cfw because the producers threaten them to.
Cheesethief, you're close about the repairs thing. They don't lock syscon away for many reasons.
And baileyscream is right. I'm putting it right in your face. He's not sucking up, he knows how much knowledge I have.
