Dude i just wanna say thanks to you for all the work did on the builder with us.. Me and RedDot-3ND7355, RazorX, Habib, EVERYONE WHO WAS INVOLVED IN HELPING! and not just so they could get something out of it.

(And also people like Hishamage they should be blacklisted, but in all seriousness you were good and did not deserve to bewt stabbed in the back by someone of hishimage's height)

LOL ps3ita has every right to be absolutely pissed... do you wanna know something funny? He closed comments on his video today - ON OF THEM - (his 4.50 one) because i commented on it about the chain of trust and a friend was with me.

Yes the patches are working but it has to be activated when the ps3 turns on.. try my new v1.0.3.
