I think this linux rocks! no hdd partition, all u need on CD
When installed how do i boot back to the ps3 os?
from System->System Settings->Set Default OS->OtherOS
This interests me alot as I use my PS3 to browse sites frequently. Thank you for this update, I have yet to make any firm decision on implementing this as of yet but this really intrigues me.
Using sixaxis as a mouse in the bootloader is a killer feature if it works. I cannot wait to get to my ps3 and try this out.
...I've installed this otheros and now when I run ps3 I only see one icon with controller! I don't know what to do now! How I can boot my ps3 os now? Why I don't see other icons in otheros? Help me!!!
Ok - now I see cd with linux and usb with linux but I can't boot it. When I press X I hear that cd is reading something but nothing happens!
So I've bricked my console?
I learned on the http://forums.ps2dev.org what you need to do to come back to ps3 os
You must switch off ps3 then press the switch on button and hold it until 3 beeps. Now you can start ps3 os :P (resolution will be set on default)
It seems that links dosent work anymore so i uploaded Pdaxrom 20090417 on public server
The reason the original link isn't working at the moment is because their entire site/Web server is down... probably just temporary though.
