Soo, you use a Hardware Flasher to flash the patched dump back to the PS3, which enables installation of CFW? Thats pretty cool. Is that what PS3Xploit does? Sounds somewhat like XBOX 360 exploitation, in which you read the NAND with a NAND-X or JR-Programmer V2, then modify the NAND and then reflash it with the programmer. Thats just the beginning of exploiting, whether it is JTAG or RGH, but this first step atleast sounds like No FSM Patching.
