Big thanks to KaKaRoToKS for being the first with a custom firmware version :-)
I may be in the minority here, but I would much rather see us being able to sign pkgs and install them (homebrew - emulators please!), and be able to run Linux with full access to hardware then I want to see copied ps3 games being able to run. Maybe I'm getting older now, but if no one supports the developers, we won't have great systems like this.
Maybe I should clarify - a system that has potential to be great, after we remove all these pointless Sony barriers and add back features that Sony took away. I know piracy is inevitable because of this, and based on Sony removing features I think they are going to get exactly what they deserve, but Sony != all game developers.
