    I dunno. I wouldn't trust it until Nodex is finished and until multiple trustworthy people confirm it.


    EDIT: I'm more prone to think April Fools day joke than anything, though.

    The post is edited with "Do not install this firmware"...why not remove the links as well? And tell why it shouldn't be installed after you directly reported on it as news? :glare:

    Anyone with common sense would know this is fake, obvious April fools joke (and if not, why pick dates so close to april fools to release it?)

    And if this does damage to anyone's console, it won't be a very funny april fools joke either...

    update says for some phat ps3s its working and bcz its only MFW it only switches on but cannot play homebrew or similar.
    probably kakaratoto has already reached this position but its about the bypassing of signatures thats now needed for this firmware. BUT atleast something nice and new.

    If it was real, what would be the use of a hacked firmware unable to run homebrew?

    Leads to further development? Basically making at least some kind of documenting and releasing it could help others find out and solve where he failed to succeed. Ah the greatness of the Internet :)
