The only reason why I wanted custom firmware was for back up loaders. Now you most likely won't believe me but out of the millions who use it to pirate games I actually back up my own LEGIT games. It's the reason why I like the 360 so much because you can put them on the HDD. But no, sony would rather have your damn BD break so you have to spend 100$ to get it repaired!
I updated due to impatience from f*ckpsn and I regret it. Alright I admit. I did pirate a COUPLE games. But just to try them out. All my games are legit. I don't agree when people get all mad at pirates when I would think the masses are much more poor than people in the video game industry. If someone pirates black ops. It's not going to make the company shut down.
If sony just gave us the damn features to have games ON THE CONSOLE instead of loading from BD I would have NO NEED for custom firmware. My god, they diden't act like this when the PSP was hacked. They did not act like this when dongles for PS3 were made. I don't even think me getting a damn dongle would help either would it? curse you 3.56!
