150w ago - Today kmeaw has made available a video proof-of-concept of his upcoming HPR, a PS3 homebrew network PKG repository which includes a built-in PKG Installer alongside BM (Backup Manager) Enabler LV2 V5 PKG followed by BM (Backup Manager) Enabler LV2 V6 PKG.

Here are some POC details thus far from kmeaw via IRC:
Homebrew PKG Repository (HPR) is currently a WIP but runs on a PS3 with a built-in PKG installer, basically, it is a very simple embedded Web browser that can install PKGs.
It uses HTTP to download PKG files and supports a small subset of HTML, as the builtin PS3 browser is much better than this one in displaying HTML but it cannot install PKGs although a complex markup for package descriptions isn't necessary.
Finally, he has also made available a first version of PS3 View of HPR above for those who wish to give it a try!

Brilliant - I presume this is along the lines of cydia for the iphone. Looking forward to getting kmeaw's cfw on my 60gb fat model tonight when i get home.
I am a little out of touch and i am currently using a psbreak dongle that could nto be updated so i have had to stick with 3.4.1 with backup manager and open manager - can anyone tell me whilst i am on the subject if all my games in their current locations will be seen by the cfw and multiman ?
The playstion 3 has to be the most exciting peice of equipment on the market at the moment. aren't we doing sony a favour. this machine is going to be awesome and is awesome. Things can ONLY get better, there will always be piracy.. always has been people still buy games, and i can only see what's happened with ps3 as being a really good advantage for all of us. it's a real exciting time for ps3.
