      There are a lot of catches with this it seems and I have yet to see reports of it working. While it is supposedly OtherOS without the hardware restrictions imposed it's still not as ideal as Sony giving it back as an official function of the firmware for those with just one console.

      This, it's ok for someone with two consoles, but for those with just one who want to also play e.g. portal 2 or online you damned.

      That said, I'm still glad Linux is being worked on, once I feel comfortable with the tools (let everyone else be the guinea pigs or for new releases) I plan to hack my old console and put this on.

      edit:
      Also, to the anti-hackers, are you complaining for legitimate reasons or just being ignorant e.g. confusing CFW hackers with the PSN hacker?

      Yeah same, This is a remarkable achievement and once they sort out hard drive partitioning instead of VFLASH I have a Slim (nicknamed Hackstation 3) ready and waiting for this.

      Thank YOU! well like Tech and TD I won't be installing this just yet, but I'm grateful somebody's actually taking care of the problem... and given the sh*t storm it's pretty safe to assume sony will just look the other way and leave this alone. Actually, well... you just never know with sony, just when you think they can't get any dumber they find a way to surprise you, so let's not discard the idea they'll send the CIA, FBI, NSA, Navy Seals, and the Green Berets to a few houses.

      This goes without saying, I don't know whether it's balls of steel or just lacking in common sense, but regardless graf has been focused on bringing back Linux to the ps3. Still, I'm not sure if this was graf's actual work, or someone else taking notes from his work.

      As ignorant as those posts make them all look, let's try to keep the insults down.

      If you want to play Portal 2 online get a PC. If you want OtherOS/Linux get a PC. If you want to hack.... make Syria/Freedom the goal instead of piracy/greed.
