Cannot you run CoD MW2 on your ps3 with cfw? I don't have it, but I think there is no problem to run this game, simply press SELECT+START on multiman or select BD mirror.

I'm assuming it checks for the presence of a Cobra USB before allowing the functionality, or are they just not functionally available (can select stuff but nothing happens)?

Also, how is the progress of cloning the Cobra USB going??

Yeah I think it's harsh removing the PSN category, but at the same time it's pragmatic and logically makes sense as there is no use for it while all CFW's are offline only.

actually I though 1 playstation store icon was enough PSN category still has one, why they thought we needed 2 I do not know.

Props to Cyberskunk (and evilsperm as well) indeed... I guess it does hint at it in the changelog above: Added Package Manager to "The Homebrew Channel" (thanks to Team REBUG [Cyberskunk and Evilsperm])

also not mentioned in the article above, I got Cyberskunk's permission to use the Package Manager code for this release.

this is cool its embedded in the firmware but sucks that we still need the cobra dongle.
