Games All the recent hackery news regarding the Playstation 3 has culminated in the inevitable: the first custom firmware for the Playstation 3. KaKaRoTo, its creator, did not release his custom firmware; in fact, he released the tools so you can modify your own Playstation 3's firmware update package. The feature set is extremely limited - but that's kind of the point. He left most of it untouched, and refuses to implement anything related to piracy.

The thing to remember for all of us US based enthusiasts is that any form of copyright circumvention falls under the DMCA.

As it is now I'm hoping that this falls under the recent decision from the Library of Congress on iPhones that jail-breaking for homebrew is legal.
