    KaKaRoTo Creates First PS3 Custom Firmware
    The day everyone has been waiting for, is finally upon us. KaKaRoTo, famous for his work on the PL3 payload, has released a tool/script that converts a standard v3.55 Sony retail firmware PUP, into a custom version. The custom firmware allows the installation of PKG files, without the need for a jailbreak. Please note, this does not appear to have the necessary patches in place, that are necessary for playing backups. However, that is a very trivial detail, considering the grand spectrum of what KaKaRoTo has achieved. Stay tuned to this post, as I will be updated it with much more information, this news is late breaking and I wanted to get it out to everyone as soon as possible. Pre-made pup coming soon.

    KaKaRoTo's Git

    Via KaKaRoTo's Twitter:
    "First CFW working. Grab http://bit.ly/hszcH3, then "./create_cfw.sh PS3UPDAT.355.PUP CFW.PUP". Permanently adds "install pkg files" menu."

    "@josuaarzensek custom firmware is what you want it to be, you run the script on 3.55 OFW and you get 3.55 CFW"

    Video of it in action:

    Woohoo! Things indeed ARE staring to get interesting!

    Great News, I'm just going to sit back and watch how everything unfolds before even thinking about installing something like this.

    If we install the CFW can we revert back to the OFW as we please?

    Awesome for gamers.

    Sucks for Sony and PS3 devs.

    The homebrew explosion is going to be incredible.

    It doesn't suck for them THAT much. Piracy isn't really as bad as they make it sound. And Homebrew would only boost the sales of the PS3.

    Yeah they're gonna be the laughing stock of the video game industry. However, that doesn't mean their console won't sell a whole lot more. Screw playing backups I want the homebrew. Maybe, we'll finally get a 99% accurate N64 emu now that would be awesome(looking at you PJ64.)

    i agree with you 100%

    psp and ps3 hacking just took over the internet and gbatemp
    everyone is talking about the psp and ps3
    no more ds/wii/xbox
    just about sony fails and what hackers are going to do in the up coming months


    why cant someone just dump the psp keys (kirk keys) so hackers can use them? (dumping in the sentence = public release)

    Can anyone confirm to me that piracy isn't as bad as the companies make it look? Or am I just deluded?
