    Like people always ask why i jailbreak my ipod and i give them reasons like sbsettings, locktoplus, and other packages. What are the mods or whatever you call them that are cool to use when you hack a ps3? Why do you hack your ps3?

    Its probably 95% pirated apps. Maybe add-ons, everyone has a different reason. Do you have one?

    I dont have a ps3 either but i think the main thing people do it would be for piracy because theres not much else that you NEED to tweak

    You can hack games, like getting all challenges and the spinning skull in MW2.

    People hack because they are bored.

    The PS3 JB just came out less then a month ago to the public. It takes time, but we are working towards a huge homebrew community.

    Already ported have been backup managers, FTP transfer to save your files, restored OtherOS, and a few emulators. Also, they just created a PKG tool to make it easier to create apps.

    Now this is all on firmware 3.41 and can not be done on any other firmware, so if you buy a playstation now there is no JB and don't get your hopes up since it took 4 years to find a hole.

    Although I'm sure that's what it will end up turning into; 95% pirated apps unfortunately.
