Being able to install packages on current firmware is a huge step towards better things. It says you can't run homebrew, so multiman/game managers would be out, but these kind of developments are like that. One guy finds a way to do something, then another guy adds something to it, and so on. I'd wait and see what people/developers do with this but I can see great possibilities for people stuck on 4.00

With this guy releasing what's he's working on, then someone else can look at it, then change it or add to it. The whole thing is a process. It is not useless at all - ps3 4.00 development is just in early stages. Relax, wait and see what comes next

This is definately a step forwards in the race for a newer cfw, but we are still limited in our ability to sign packages and run them on 4.0(or lack there of).
If only there was a way to run the old method of authentication (no "npdrm hash algo" check) on 4.0. If only it were that easy lol
it says "developer" on the main page before you even click on the thread. This isn't designed for every day users yet
This is nothing more than adding a lock to a door, for which we still don't have a key. It looks pretty, and looks like it's doing something, but we still can't open it. It does more bad to post something like this than good because it only gives false hope. There are plenty of dev only channels and sites to ask for help.
The reason a 3.55 .pkg isntaller was useful then was because we could sign 3.55 .pkgs in a way that they would work, still not even the way the retail ones were, but good enough. So we need the keys for 4.00, then we need level access, Peek Poke.
useless for the masses but thanks for the information

.pkg is the easier part, you find the exploit first, before you can put anything on it. What good is having a way to put things on, if you can't put things on? This is like successfully putting a Sega emulator on your PS3 before having any way, or clue how, to even run it.
Don't believe me, look around, this is not the same thing that happened with 3.55 geo, just trying to save a lot of people from blowing things up and getting their hopes up.
