This, clearly does not take anywhere near that long to get setup - best guess is that it is loading a self, however they have found a code exploit that will allow them to alter system data, tricking the system into running unsigned code (the fake self inside of the manager).
With this - we should however be able to run homebrew (which, is a plus!) - but of course good homebrew will take some time, will be fun however to get a genesis emu on the PS3 that works well!
