Recently the developers over at Gitbrew have been working on a number of neat projects around the PS3 Console, and we being in close contact with them, and gotten a preview of something that will make everyone more then happy in PS3 'Scene'!
We are talking about NPDRM and the v3.60+ problem. -- Previously only those with an official Sony PS3 SDK could do anything, and still in a limited fashion, and recently the developers have been able to use a heavly modified PSL1GHT setup to do the impossible, sign a package for the v3.60+ system!
What they are calling FrankenSDK, and here is example test output from the project:
$ make_package_npdrm.exe -c UP0001-TEST00000_00-0000111122223333.pkg

All they can add for now regarding the subject is they are working diligently towards opening their tools up to everyone incuding those with the mystery science console 3000 and they are now one step closer to working PUP's for v3.60 and beyond! -- Being able to use an open-source project like PSL1GHT means it will open up the playing field to EVERYONE!

Been a busy/crazy month(s)! I was gone for a whole week. Atleast it looks like some one noticed! I was actually just thinking that I had not talked to you in awhile, too...

You trust your niece? I barely trust my GF !!! (on the PS3 of course ). My niece has enough fun on Nintendo, she does not want/like Sony, aka, the 'Dark Side'. I mean really, that could be the nickname of this 'ps3 scene', right? I can hear the Empire Theme music now *trumpets, or whatever they used * Anyone know which episode we are on?
