    Basically it is the same as Kakaroto's firmware except it can run UNSIGNED homebrew on 3.55 which btw is awesome [​IMG]

    Cool! [​IMG] But can this only be installed from lower firmwares, or could you install this from v3.55 OFW?

    Possibly from the lv2diag version but not the pup version. Unless there's a way to spoof the version the PS3 reads without changing the actual firmware version it installs (i.e. no files are different in the flash for Sony to spot)

    depends on if you do it from regular or recovery mode.
    for recovery purposes they allow flashing a same-version firmware from within recovery mode.
    recovery mode is activated by holding the power button on a PS3 untill it turns on and off again, and then holding it again untill you get a double-beep(so you get *beep*...........*beep*...........*beep**beep*)
    from that menu you can reset PS3 settings, and upgrade/reinstall the firmware.

    can you actually do anything with this firmware? also it seems you don't need to reinstall the firmware at all, just plug in a device and the icon appears on the menu?

    Yes you can! This is basically a Jailbreak without the device or the backup loader. This will install and run any and all current PS3 homebrew (emulators etc.). He didn't show himself installing the firmware, he just plugged in the flashstick and installed that PNG viewer to show it worked.

    Nice, but isn't it better that we run signed homebrew on an unsigned firmware, than unsigned homebrew on a signed firmware?

    How would you be able to install the Un-signed cfw? Also, it's easier to just run Un-signed homebrew on signed firmware 'cause you only need one signed firmware whereas you'll have a lot of signed homebrew.

    The unsigned firmware would just be the official sony firmware.
    My point is, wouldn't it be easier to install homebrew that's legally signed?

    You mean it would be better to run signed homebrew on the OFW. The problem is that the XMB doesn't include that all important "Install Package" option which is basically what these CFW add. The reason Geohot unlocked the signing is so that all current homebrew will function bar the Backup loader

    Well since you only need one signed firmware, it would be easier then having to have every homebrew developer to have to sign their homebrew first. But then again I have no idea how long it takes to sign the software.

    this means open manager will not run on his CFW correct?

    That's what he's trying to do at least.

    But it's pretty likely that someone will use the freely available keys and tools to create custom-firmwares and documentation to enable piracy.

    It's very nice to think though that there will be custom firmwares that strictly only enable homebrew.
