Im pretty sure it by invite only and sony know the I.p of the ppl who they want using it. Saying that I've got the Home software from a mate of mine on memory stick so im going to have a mess about with it today and see if i can get it to work.
Heard you can install it but needs to have a update then just freezes as your not on sonys system. But sod it im doing it.

let us know how u get on with this. i find it a bit strange on sonys part that this is able to be installed from a usb stick, when this cant be done with any other games

i will get back to u on that. going to have a hunt around and see if it works first, dont want to install it if i cant do anything with it.

maybe if the OP checked the threads he makes we would know how successful this was.

anyway, to the OP, if u ever check this thread again. just format your ps3 hard drive in the settigs menu. that will get rid of everything on the hard drive though. for any other programs or games on the ps3, you just press the triangle button then press delete.

Just take it back dude tehy won't notice. And if they DO just say either a) it appeared after the 2.4 update and that's when you had the probs (LOLZ) or b) say you where in the BETA at one point - they can;t exactly check.

Deedie : As far as I know you CAN just about hack your wayinto Home but it can screw your box and/or balls you up for future firmware updates - as home leaves some love in your firmware.

Cheers all
