Has anyone attempted an install on the 1.6 firmware yet? I notice on Playstation.com they list a couple of major changes to the process:
* The "installer" no longer needs to be downloaded from this website. The PLAYSTATION®3 system software can directly install the "boot loader" that is saved on the storage media. Note that the location of the otheros.bld file on the storage media has not changed.
* You no longer need to create a partition for the "other system" on the hard disk.
Could this mean linux is on the same partition as GameOS?
Anyway, I'll be giving it a go today and will report back my experience.
