That's cool but it serves no purpose other than to show he did it.

so? does it run better compared to pc? I don't think so

That's what I just said, it's cool that he did it but it serves no purpose as it would be better on PC.

this is pointless at best!

So the reason of the jailbreak - to get back removed features - has ONLY JUST come out? Proof that the jailbreak was for piracy, nothing more.

Apparantley graf owns over 100 legit games, it was people using the code to make up backup managers, he never inteded/wanted to use backups.

i hope graff gt a job a sony i mean that guy did most of the hardwork for hacking the ps3, dont get me wrong i dont support hacking, but if any hacker should work for sony it should be graff>hotz

you're an idiot. AsBestOS and other linux methods have already been released in the jailbreak a long time ago. This is just graf's method.

is that ok, putting something back on the PS3?.. I dont know.

Edit: this is a question

So if it won't help people pirate ps3 games (apparently), it's only purpose is using Cell for intense number crunching without buying kit off IBM?

I had no idea that hardware hackers cared about things like that...

You can just buy a graphics card at less cost than a ps3 and run computations on that with more gflops under the hood.

Is he just trying to prove a point?

Is he just trying to prove a point?

Basically yes
But only that he could do it.
No real point other than that.
