Am I the only one having a hard time keeping up with the scene at the minute? So much is being released and so many people on different firmwares.. it seems like a giant clusterf*ck.
In comparison with the (awesome) early days of PSP homebrew, Im finding it difficult to keep track of what really is being accomplished. Maybe its just me.. but Ive been signing in everyday to check on developments and its a tough scene to keep pace with.
I remember back on the PSP, You either stuck with firmware 1.50 (homebrew capabilities on official firmware) or jumped to DAX's custom firmware (loaders, compression, custom themes, updated official features and recovery utility). Good times.
I understand the PS3 scene is still maybe in early stages... and the releases can all be considered proof of concepts and trials, but really.. Geohot, Waninkoko, kakaroto and Wutangrza firmwares (with many users on these different firmwares), signing for those respective firmwares, the different tools released only for specific firmwares, lawsuits, constant crying for backup managers, eboot signing with keys etc . . . it feels like the ultimate goal is lost in the shuffle.
I made a post in one of the help sections not too long ago because the amount of off topic discussions within threads are just getting silly. The best help I could recieve was being pointed towards another irrelevant thread. I dont blame the long serving and decent contributors to the site either, they have to put up with the same sh~t. The Dreamcast and PSP scenes didn't suffer half as much as what the PS3 scene does.
I just want to know if anyone feels like they are on the same boat. Between the rapid CFW releases, tools, bricks, messy threads, noobs and cries for Backup managers...
