Normally when one releases a prototype application this is how it advances

1. A 1.0.1 version is released that fixes bugs/ increases performance

2. After about 5 or so of these releases they finally get to adding easy to implement features ala NTFS via the already released binaries

3. Add new (more advanced) features such as plugin support

4. Restart from step one and go on to step three

This is probably how this application will advance; hopefully he's not a Hermes

works great on PS3ITA 3.55 mkv support. Used mkvtools (mac only don't have a window) to split the files bigger the 4GB so the fit on Fat32 HDD.

Does anyone knows if it works on Waninkoko`s V2 CFW 3.55. I got only error

Yes it works, it was also giving me that error, then I tried repack for 3.41 version and it supprisingly works.

For you 3.41 users, I had to enable the hermes patch or whatever payload u use for it to boot, otherwise it would error 8000...
