    make_self_npdrm makes valid NPDRM selfs from elfs
    it does not contain any info on decrypting or removing NPDRM
    NPDRM is required for interoperability of our homebrew applications
    package_finalize turns your debug packages into psuedoretail packages
    psuedoretail packages install on a geohot jailbroken PS3

    i'm excited to see what you will create

    Whats the problem with the keys anyway? They're just a bunch of numbers. Even Team Twiizers posted the common key of the Wii on their hackmii blog...

    It's just a precaution, it's not that hard to google anyways. I like gbatemp here so i don't mind them being safe.

    I have to agree with what someone else posted earlier though, the way Geohot's behaving, if people go along with it, isolates the homebrew environment into something that he can control, Geohot verified homebrew for Geohot verified CFW.
    I don't like that at all, homebrew is a collaborative free endeavour, not something for Geohot to moderate like this.

    With many people capable of making their own CFW, what Geohot will be doing is creating a compatibility split amongst homebrewers.
    What about Kakaroto's homebrew only firmware? What about another potential CFW that allows piracy? Should they not be running Geohot's signed homebrew?
    That might be what he thinks, with his anti-piracy stance.

    I agree with you totally, I'm just excited for something of this development! I'm all for universal homebrew, and I for one don't want a GeoHot CFW only thing either

    Is that so? Sounds a lot more convenient.
    Still worried about Geohot's homebrew signing tools not working on all CFW, but it's already possible for someone to test that .pkg PNGviewer that Geohot published on Kakaroto's CFW.
    Someone? Go do that.

    What I really hope from this is PS2 emulation or restoring backward comptibility. I hate having to switch between my PS3 and PS2.

    As long as they don't contain comercially-copywritten code, yes. Homebrew is fine.
