We can't predict the future but all of this is substantial progress in that direction. I believe the problem lies in e fact that we still can't sign our firmwares to be installable by those on the newer official firmwares even although we can decrypt them and resign them in such a way that they will install on 3.55 consoles....hardware methods simply bypass the check on newer firmwares.
That said knowing exactly how the firmware works is huge progress towards an exploit. My feeling is the most likely order will be that we find a way of exploiting the newer firmware by reverse engineering the firmware then this will allow us to slowly wedge it open...though we don't know if or when any of this will happen.....maybe someone else can confirm my understanding is correct!
