bottom line, this so called method to extract your key is done by a hardware to intercept it, and you can bet that the lv0 keys have managed to make this job easier for Cobra so they can figure how to intercept it.
and Like I said before, if you have a big issue with drm/secrets or whatever, then why did you purchase a ps3 on the first place? in case you haven't figured this out yet, this console is heavily drmed, by hardware and software.
Im not only talking about small time 5 minute e fame seekers. Im talking about people with good dev skills that get paid into silence and let their greed get in the way of whats best for the scene. As for the questioning of my purchase, state any alternative commercial product in the world that can do everything a CFW ps3 can do including PS1, PS2 and PS3 playback and I'll admit you are right. Until then for obvious reasons your argument is invalid.
On a side note, this is a hacking scene site and the enemy of hacking is reDRM (at least these days). Thats why alot of people here frown upon reDRM dongles and people who buy them because they are supporting the enemy in a sense.
You know who we need in this scene? Solid Snake to infiltrate and get the private keys from Sony and Otacon to do the hacking.
