I have a quick question for anyone willing to field it: I'm pondering ways to distribute signed pkg files to a ps3, and I'm wondering if you could use the PSN Download Manager/booster, and send the signed file over to the psn in lieu of the actual demo or game downloaded.
I assume it hashes the file for an md5 sum or something to prevent this. However if not it may be a fairly simple way to get signed homebrew on a legit system.
edit: tried it. Got an 80029564 error. Damn. As a followup, I'm reading from Kakarotoks that geohot's signing tools are incomplete and don't actually sign the pkg itself, only the self files. which would explain the failure I am experiencing trying to get the ps3 to accept an unsigned pkg. His close sourced MFW apparently patches out the PKG check.

No, sadly due to spammers making BS posts and then editing them a few days later to include their spam we have no plans to change the editing permissions. We can override them though for members who need it (such as we did for deanrr) so that they can update their posts, lists, etc but not just for users who want to be able to edit in general.
and the elf i got from using unself.exe tool from fail0verflow. thing is, i can sign an eboot.bin with the fail0verflow makeself, however it seems invalid since the file is 4kb bigger than the original eboot.bin and if i try sceverify it says:
perror: No error
using WinXP sp3 here, dunno if it makes any difference.
