    Guide: How to Compile PSFreedom's Payloads with Ubuntu 10.10

    Over the weekend Klutsh posted a simple guide on how to compile PSFreedom's payloads with Ubuntu 10.10.

    He states this is for the payloads only and is independent of devices, and his next guide will cover compiling the kernel and the kernel module which are device dependant.

    Below is the guide, to quote:

    Here's a real quick guide on getting Ubuntu 10.10 ready to compile the PSFreedom payloads.


    - A Working install of Ubuntu 10.10

    The Guide:

    First thing we need to do is install some applications through apt, so open a terminal and do the following:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    Now we need to clone PSFreedom from github to our local PC, pull it's submodules and get the toolchain installed

    [Register or Login to view code]

    Now go get a Coffee/sleep, installing the toolchain can take a few hours (6-7 hours if you are running Ubuntu in a Virtual PC)

    Ok, so you have had your Coffee or sleep and you have the toolchain installed & PSFreedom cloned to your home directory, the hard part is over.

    Now you need to edit your .bashrc file:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    Add the following line to the end of the file:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    To compile PSFreedom's payloads is simple now, open a terminal and do the following:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    That's it, you can now find the payload .bin files in the PSFreedom/pl3 folder.

    you will need to have a jailbreak device of your choice and be on FIRMWARE 3.41 or BELOW... then you can run the homebrew that the jailbreak device works with, also you will need to have it compiled correctly.

    Alternative psfmod (PSFreedom) payloads can be found here:

    An alternative if you don't want to compile it yourself.

    everything went smooth untill i tryed to "make". where in the bash file do i put "export PATH=${PATH}:/usr/local/ps3dev/ppu/bin/ "? i put it after all the text.its the only thing i could have done wrong.

    Looks like you didn't restart the terminal window after you edited the bashrc file. Close the terminal window and reopen it and try again...

    Also, the export PATH=$(blah,blah,blah).... goes at the very end of the file.

    You can press the Control Key + End go to the end in gedit... it goes there.
