good on you hacked2123, if you dont get ps3/wii emulator sussed itll be a mine of info while learning, whos to say u wont anyhow.
some ppl learn in a more progressive manner. altho chouonsoku is right in saying the ps3 XMB is known to be problematic, but heyy, was psp, xbox, xbox360, gamecube, ps1, ps2 cracked in a day?
nahhh, its through ppl hacking away at different aspects of it, after all it is a sport of trial and error.
good luck m8, if you cant crack ps3 look at the wii side of things... maybe ill see your nick as my son boots his first backup
