Komi77, that could be a RAM issue. Try running the program as admin, by right clicking it, and run as admin.

It's still 'BETA' for a reason damn.. No need to make a remark like that.

Now that it's been broken down, they can begin work on rebuilding which brings us one visible step closer to accessible (legit) homebrew development.

Good to be moving away from Sony SDK in a sense, not everyone knows where/wants to look for such things. Still can't get over how exciting things have gotten for us ps3 owners lately!

CJPC,

We are hoping and waiting to turn our retail consoles to debug machines.. We expect more useful homebrews like the FTP soft because so far you gave the very important app to study the internal files... You're the man in the mission impossible (Now it's Possible thanks to you and the others).

With this soon or later we might see jailbreak dlc or psn games. It is at least the first step in that possible direction.
