264w ago - Here is a video demoing my "custom firmware". I would have added something showing off the new features of 3.21, but oh wait, there aren't any.

This can be installed without having to open up your PS3, just by restoring a custom generated PUP file.

It's possible this CFW will also work on the slim to actually *enable* OtherOS; I'll know when my infectus gets here.

No release date yet, use the proxy hack to play online with 3.15

Note to the people who removed OtherOS, you are potentially turning 100000+ legit users into "hackers."

Reading GeoHot's Twitter:
# I realize most of you aren't dicks. I have some cool stuff planned, but not the time to make it how I envision it now. Keep an eye on spirit 4:46 PM Apr 26th via mobile web
# Also, I think a lot of you expecting a release soon are going to be disappointed. I have so much to finish before I work on the jailbreak. 12:02 PM Apr 26th via mobile web

I wonder if the "other things to finish" includes PS3 CFW...

i think everyone who gives up now, wasn't ever was standing 100% behind his speech.

i mean, everybody says "who, i can't wait till the first cfw is released!" but so many people now give up and say "wah, screw geohot, screw sony, i'm updating, i don't wanna wait"...

waiting for what? waiting for 3d support which is not available for games atm? waiting for spyplugins from sony which are make them able to upgrade your system witouth even knowing?

Sony knows that they have lvl2 dump and know that people are trying to get more information dumps. if anybody of them posts now much informations Sony will strike back.

i'm pretty sure that a solution is near and this is definitely worth to wait.

everyone who keeps waiting for some cfw to update their ps3s in order to get on psn and keep other os is wasting time.. if you are one who is interested in homebrew on the ps3 at all i suggest going to buy yourself a slim for PSN and keep the phat offline... it was said multiple times that 3.21oo was a one shot deal... now that 3.30 is out it may not even be possible to go the same route that geo was going with the 3.21oo. im not saying that its not possible, i just feel like it is highly unlikely that you will get both.

Lets think about the 360.. you either have homebrew or you have XBL.. you don't get both at least not for long. And just so i'm clear i'm not talking about flashing the dvd drive to play bakcups.. i'm talking about the jtag hack.. linux on the xbox.. and the ability to run unsigned code.. in order to jtag your xbox can't have been updated since 2007 (yes... 3 years ago).. MS blocked all the holes and blew efuses to block downgrading in august 08. I have 2 xbox's.. an elite for XBL.. and a used pro I use for homebrew... I'd be getting me a slim for PSN if i used it.. but i don't.. 3.15 does EVERYTHING i use my PS3 for just fine..

Please don't take this as a rant.. i meant it more to be informational because it seems like some just don't understand and keep talking about the xbox being hacked.. yes it has but no hack and live.. Don't get me wrong it will be nice if sony doesn't start banning homebrew consoles when the time comes.. but i'd be VERY surprised!

Only downside to a Debug Unit is you can't go online

I used to call him GeoHot, but now I refer to him as EgoHot because I find he has no interest in releasing CFW to us wanting to use our PS3's properly.

well i just updated mine, sick of waiting! been lurking these kind of sites since ps3 first saw the light, and now i'm just tired. sick of fake news and waiting. sick of SONY most of all.

a lot of props to the ones working there butts of for us so we can play homebrew, and get what we payed for. not sick of you, more how sony is treating us!

WILL NEVER EVER BUY A SONY PRODUCT AGAIN!

For all we know hes hit a snag in his game plan anyway, and in all honesty, this is far from an iphone so keep letting him have it until he wants no part of it anymore.

It appears some people are doing just that, not that GeoHot cares I'm sure, but it's still entertaining like the video an EgoHot fan made.
