CFW = Custom Firmware.

Using CFW will allow you to run .pkg files, which install things to your PS3 that you normally wouldn't be able to install. (Such as emulators, backup managers, etc.)

So yeah, basically like a JTAG, but you can install CFW using a USB.

He did not give any date and also he said that it would not allow for backup managers to run but he never said anything about .pkg file managers being on it.

CFW -
Custom Firmware, it allows you to run un signed codes that allow you to access the root of your PS3 where the patchs, updates are stored.
