142w ago - Recently Graf_Chokolo revealed that he is working on a PS3 3.55 HV CFW, which will have dual boot Linux built in.
To quote from Dukio: I plan to implement dual boot feature in HV, just like i did on my PS3 3.41, and you can boot with it either gameos or linux or some other system like freebsd. You won’t need any bootos on gameos for that. I will also patch HV and enable more features
I will do it on PS3 slim, first i will resize HDD and add a partition for Linux there
Expect more features coming in as the HV patching continues. Oh, and he is working on a 3.55 FW only at the moment, although on the newer firmware versions is possible according to graf.
Now for 3.55, on other version offsets are different so the code is the same but offsets to patch are different.
When ask about the progress of his lawsuit and if he requires more legal funds, graf_chokolo had to say this:
It's very slow, for now it’s enough i think, thanks.
I have no huge news yet regarding lawsuit but soon I think I will have.

Awesome progress, terrific work graf! I'm wouldn't worry about a 3.61 or whatever patch. Those who are in the know already are not going to move past 3.55. It would probably be a requirement to setup a dual boot system. That really would be the best of both worlds.
CFW so we can do what we want while offline (I really only want to run emulators) and an unmodified partition so Sony doesn't wet theirs pants. One can dream...
