is there any way to get around this? like make it look authenthic
my guess is that it's signed with a key that only sony has. however, i'm sure that in the future, a homebrew firmware flasher will exist. who knows, maybe the sony flasher will be hacked to allow any firmware to be flashed.
a flasher already exists to flash a portion of the firmware (PSPersonalize) so doing the whole thing is not far off IMO.
