This is pretty much what we've all been waiting for, well, at least half of it. A dual boot to use OFW access PSN (I'd sure like to get that stuff I already paid for!) and an updated custom firmware to run backups to cut the load times... that and be lazy and not have to switch the disc. I don't suppose he's ever given a rough estimate of when he'll be done?
Here is another PNM Project Update from No_One stating that it is now in the final stages, with both NOR flash sockets now working and soon a full tutorial on how to use PNM to find currently unknown v3.60+ keys on newer PS3 firmware versions.
To quote: ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/973-PNM-Project-Update-Final-Stages
I wanted to announce that PNM project has entered its last stage. PNM is now wired to the motherboard of a SLIM PS3 : DYN-001.
The first results are fine. PNM is correctly powered by the PS3 itself. Much better, PNM is now capable to power on/off automatically the PS3.
Firmware is choosen using a jumper. Here is how it will work (very soon):
remove the power cable
place the jumper to choose Firmware #1 or Firmware #2
connect the power cable
And then the PS3 starts automatically without human interaction. Let me clarify some points read here and there.
I never promised the 3.6+ public keys! I just said that PNM will allow to find them nothing else.
This project is a hobby. I work as fast as I can. Please stop the lame remarks concerning the delay!
I will come back soon with the final video demonstration.
