141w ago - Following up on his previous update, today PlayStation 3 hacker Graf Chokolo has made available the Petitboot Tools for Linux on the PS3 console to allow the dual booting of Gentoo and GameOS.
To quote, roughly translated: Some days programming an operator of PKG, and since I have left something kinda cool, because what the public... I notice I am not a professional program and I do this with an altruistic and disinterested.
I must say it is only tested in Kmeaw 3.55, it also creates this pkg for CFW GeoHot have not tried. No need to have any program or folder keys, simply use the MagicPKG and go.
This program uses internally readself tools, unself, etc... but you need not have them.
Please, if you use it to go posting that you work and no play as well as if you ever find a fault. Thank you very much everybody.
OPERATION: The program itself has a fairly comprehensive tutorial.

141w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Lead Designer Stephen Bokkes has made available a video announcing that Free Realms hits PSN today and includes Voice Chat and PS3 Trophies.
To quote: Today, as a PS3 gamer, you should ask yourself only one question: where can I race a demolition derby car against my friends, build a fun house for my friends to come play in, battle monsters as a stealthy ninja, own a parrot and talk like a pirate, raise a dragon pet that poops hot coals, and ride a rainbow unicorn off into the sunset?
Starting today, the answer is Free Realms! That's right, Sony Online Entertainment's popular online virtual world makes its way to the PlayStation Network today and you can all play it for FREE.
Free Realms is the first casual, free-to-play MMO ever to be offered on the PlayStation Network and definitely has something for everyone to play, adventure and experience.

Check out the video below for a flythrough!
Another map that we're happy to unveil is Cesspool. Cesspool was one of the earliest MP maps developed...
