Ya, I just banned the one dink and removed the BS posts, and -Rep'd another. Seriously people, read and think intelligently before posting ignorant and redundant questions.
This has nothing to do with an iSO Loader at all, it's just a PS3 Bootloader that allows you to launch PS3 Linux among other things. This is clearly stated in the title, article, and documentation. Anyone who thinks a PS3 iSO Loader will come before 1) a Retail hole is found and 2) a Hello World is released should not even be posting here.
Let's get this back on topic, who else has tested out the pdaXrom-NG Bootloader and what are your thoughts of it?
Who ever mentioned that this is an ISO loader?
Its a Bootloader, meaning its a Linux/Unix based front loader; nothing to do with ISO's etc, meaning this has nothing to do with pirating etc; this is a completely open and free function you can do provided by Sony.
