For those who missed it, the PlayStation 3 JailBreak 2 (JB2) Pin-Outs and Schematics were also made available recently, and PS3 developers (some of whom already have the PS3 3.72 Keys) admit it won't be long before the dongle is completely reversed.

Upon examination by PS3 scene developers, the True Blue JB2 dongle appears to be (as suspected) using PS3 Debug EBOOT files which allow newer Firmware games to run on PlayStation 3 3.55 Custom Firmware with the JailBreak 2 Payload essentially being an NPDRM Debug EBOOT file.
The UnSelf'd EBOOT.BIN Visible Plaintext reads as follows: "After the process has completed, your PS3 will be running system software version 3.55. After the update, your PS3 will have new features available and will retain compatibility with all previous software, however, you will be unable to revert either your PS3 or the dongle to an earlier software version"...
This appears to be a warning to those seeking to change PS3 Custom Firmware versions, however, as an interesting note from the Wiki (linked above) it used /dev_hdd0/vsh/tmp.bin as temp.
Although there is more work to be done, including dumping newer JB2 versions with PS3 HDD and Blu-ray support and decrypting the Actel Chip's True Blue 2MB Payload so that it can be ported to other devices, calculators, phones and older USB dongles as PSJailBreak (via PSGroove) and PSDowngrade (via PSGrade) were it shouldn't be long with the combined effort of talented PS3 scene developers.
Update: The LV2 dump payload at 0x7f0000 has now been decrypted for those following!
Expect good things from this, hopefully soon it'll be open-sourced and implemented into a PS3 CFW or into multiMAN, for that matter. http://www.ps3news.com/forums/images/smilies/icon10.png
