Playstation 3 has entered into a new world of homebrews, with Kakarato announcing the first build of PS3 Custom Firmware, but for now it doesn’t do much, it just adds an option of “Install Package Files” in the Game XMB menu. The important bit is that now with fail0verflow tools and PS3 root key, custom firmware can be created for any version of PS3, be it v3.41 or the latest v3.55 firmware.
Using the PS3 utilities available at fail0verflow github you can create custom firmwares but it requires Linux, But don’t worry downloadable PS3 Custom firmware’s are already available and more to follow soon.
