November 20, 2010 // 1:12 am - Today Dark_Monkey of German site (linked above) has posted a video of what he calls MFW - the first running ModFirmWare for Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

There is no release yet, but below is the proof-of-concept video and some details, roughly translated as follows:

After a few days I've finally done it:

A stable current with MFW Homebrew channel although with a few bugs but zlib is also only in Betastatium.

Have fun with the video. Download will come in a few days!

As always Gildete: You can keep all my Rahtshriebfaler

Now I read that it does not have extra CFW MFW rather someone and then something :-(

Download is available in a few days... For normal users, of course, only USBLoader loaded and final.

It's exciting times for ps3. New methods and hacks are breaking all over now and the cat and mouse games have begun. Personally I'm following this particular development closely

Wait til CFW is released, there'll be a 1000 page topic for those trying to install it and breaking their console.

If you can't wait for CFW - get a job, get a hobby, get a girlfriend, whatever... just be patient for everyone's sake. It's not fun having to read thru 30+ pages of brown cigars to get to the facts.

Sorry for being blunt. Just woke up...

I'm glad somebody said this. I thought it was a nice idea what he has done here with modding the menus. What's wrong with that? If it's not for you then don't use it. No need to flame the guy over it.

It's annoying how some things are just never good enough for people. Negative comments only serve to discourage developers from releasing their work.

before this starts into a flame thread against this person. he did not say that this is a CUSTOM Firmware. he also did not said what he all did. don't put him words in his mouth or in the text who are not there.

he calles it ModFirmware. which is deffenetly NO CustomFirmware so stop blame him for this video.

Everyone started little. and like all the backup managers getting more and more style updates. also he wants to make the normal xmb more backup friendly. like he showed in this video. he renated the tv to hombrew. included some startup icons. and so on.

dont blame him for things he not did.. i tell you again.



ps.: sorry for capslook but i know that many people dont read the whole text. so i made the important parts in capslook.

I agree with you guys.. i don't think this is nothing but pure attention seeking agenda.
