    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.

    If you change the Default System back to "PS3" then when you restart it will be back to the normal PS3 OS (XMB).

    If you are in Linux and wish to go back from the Terminal window, type: boot-game-os

    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 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)

    The reason the original link isn't working at the moment is because their entire site/Web server is down... probably just temporary though.

    We do mirror all releases in our Downloads section:

    The pdaXrom releases are under PS3 Linux/OtherOS here:
