    Hi,

    Is this only for firmware 3.41 or 3.55 as well?

    Amazing work!

    When i can keep my YDL and finally move beyond fw 3.15 will be a banner day for me personally! Linux with RSX support would be the ultimate achievement, but only with continued brilliant and unselfishness work from you and others! thx Graf!

    nice, so next step remainings are?:

    - Creating HV CFW which is capable of booting GameOS or petitboot. petitboot can boot Linux (or other OS) from HDD, FLASH, USB, CDROM or NFS (just like 3.15 did it or me on my PS3 3.41)
    - Creating a more user-friendly approach for installing Linux on internal HDD

    thanks you Graf
