(Q2)Also, how does creating CFW 4.x help users who already have CFW 3.X (I may be wrong, but I am guessing access to PSN depends on a different set of keys and not lv0 and that sony can change the keys with every update)?
(A1) You need to wait because you cannot use the door
that 3.55 used to exploit the FW. 3.56+ has checks to ensure no modded FW pups are installed, it just throws up an error now to prevent installation.
Once a new door
is found to open the PS3, then you can do what you want.
(A2) It doesn't really
benefit 3.55 CFW users, it just makes it easier to pirate without patching files. From the newest decrypted vsh.self we can have PSN on 3.55, we get game patches any way from unSANE and DUPLEX, so I see no need to update IMHO.
Sony moved everything around last time, whats to say they dont do that again and re-encapsulate the keys once more.
