I reopened this thread for those seeking help with the kernel module, but to follow-up on the above quote from earlier today...
We ran out of time, so I never ended up posting it in the news and we're still waiting for an answer from someone on it but for those curious, this is the leak I was referring to, roughly translated: elotrolado.net/hilo_edit-otheros-se-ejecuta-p-otheros-self-en-ps3-slim_1348709_s140
This part was new to the Devs from it: 2nd_image_writer.self
It appears to be a mix of data between an internal mode tool, and a PS3 in service mode. I'm sure when time permits we'll follow-up on it though!
Until then, let's get back on topic with discussion of the sample PS3 Linux isolated SPU loader code!
