articbudu normally you can install over the XMB or recovery menu, but if you have an error, will go through 3.55.

DMagic1 the engraved discs must operate from the moment you blew up the anti copy protection.

"Patch Cinavia (protection removed)"

I assume that doesn't apply to movies on disc?

This is cool. Seems kind of cool but a bit complicated. I hope I can use the mode with DEX.

Really excited.
