Thanks for the note, I'll keep that in mind and add it to my review. I personally will continue to use the BM, but if I were to install this chip for some other people, I'm sure I'd run into a few that would be completely thrown off by it just because they would be expecting the sony browser and mindless loading.

Here is my reasoning behind that statement - right now I have my CC chip set to auto start the hard drive when the machine boots up. That's great for when I have HD Loader set to load from the HDD when I press the L1 button, simulating what people are used to with the MI chips. Here's the catch though - let's say I throw in a standard game disc or DVD movie - I don't want the hard drive to load. I only want the HD to spin up when I press L1 to launch hdloader, or any other app of my choosing when that button is pressed. If I could make that happen without the need for the BM, then every system I chip could be fitted with a CC chip. I would only stock MI chips for people who I know expect that feature. Right now not having the HDD load automagically with the BM then requires a completely extra step for a user to turn on the drive, then load HDLoader from the BM. Just pressing a button at boot up is much easier I think.
Let me know if you would like any help with the documentation for the chips - I could give you a hand if you'd like.
