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.
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?

But the another (maybe better?) boot loader is good too. With this you can install Megabox and play on emlators (MAME, SNES etc.)

What exactly does this thing do? Play PS3 ISO yet or it is just another thread to get our hopes up?
