Jezz_X one of the devs said what i just quoted above, the thing is, they don't have the understanding of the PS3 architecture, or the cell processor and that's perfectly fine, we were just looking for a helping hand, we didn't want it done for us.
Now i wont be commenting anymore, unless its on a build of XBMC for my PC, which i use quite regularly.
Devs im sorry if you feel disrespected, i am in no way trying to disrespect you guys, because you are awesome in the work you do.

I (almost) always read my posts before I hit submit with the mindset of how the reader will interpret it. It helps me get the point across without starting a post storm.

So I've been reading that in a recent Sony update to the PS3, they have removed the option to install another OS. How would that get worked around? I don't think the option of just don't update the firmware is really viable. Also, I think it was mentioned, but this isn't possible on the newer slim ps3 models, correct?

Hopefully it will evolve into a fully working version for ps3. I have waiting for a good reason for buying one.
As for technical questions, how would you and anyone else judge the possibility to use this on the ps3 as a fully working version in reasonable time?
Also, I have heard that "install other OS" can be enabled on ps3 slim (geohot?). Anyone else know more of this?
