YDL 6.2 uses kernel v2.6.29 (64 bit), between other upgrades that boost performance, you can download it now from the public mirrors, this is one location:

Thank you Jim for the reply, i thought the new kernel was needed because they blocked PS3VRAM.

I hope they release in the future a new version with compatibility, or a new ps3vram.

PS3VRAM locked in newer PS3 Models?

It seems that on 80GB PS3 (Model Number 98015 and later) and the 160GB PS3 (Model Number 900006 and later) you cannot boot the system if you have the PS3VRAM enabled at least on YDL 6.1 What changes in the hardware could cause this? more info http://us.fixstars.com/support/solutions/ydl_6.x/update_k...

I did try the new version and it works now with YDL, and noticed that it boots to the menu a lot faster, bluez isnt implemented yet, i guess it will come as a loadable module option in next version... Thanks again.

Indeed the YDL 6.1 dvd uses yaboot.conf, i hope it could be added in the future (i guess petitboot sources could be helpful for this), i will be waiting for your new ps3boot as its very useful, its NICE that you managed to add bluez!
Thank You!!!
