"On April 1, Sony removed one of the PlayStation 3’s
original features, the option to install an alternate operating
system such as Linux, with its latest firmware (version 3.21).
Today, one man claims to have reinstated that feature.
"Hacker George “Geohot” Hotz says he has, as
promised, implemented a workaround that will let users enjoy the
most recent version of the PS3’s firmware while keeping the
“Install Other OS” option available. The catch, before
homebrew and Linux enthusiasts get too excited, is that if
you’ve already installed 3.21, you’re out of luck."
