PlayStation 3

Yesterday we told you about a group of hackers who figured out how to hack the PS3. Now that the PS3 has been hacked, the first custom firmware for the console has been created. Frankly speaking, the custom firmware doesn't really do much, baby steps I guess. The hacker, KaKaRoToKS, wrote on his blog,  "Thanks to the tools made by the fail0verflow team (and thanks to sven in particular for his work on the pkg/unpkg tools), the first 'Custom Firmware' is now available for the PS3!"

Due to obvious legal and copyright issues KaKaRoToKS has opted to not post his custom firmware online. Currently the firmware only offers minor additions; with the firmware you can add "install package files" to the game section of the Cross Media Bar. KaKaRoToKS ended his blog with "eventually we’ll get some more options added to it in the future. This is just starting to get interesting!"

Do you support hackers trying to test the limits of the PS3, even if it leads to playing pirated games?
