Nice way to start page8. I've gotten hold on a phat version. prepared the HDD for an OtherOS.
Given a little help (read: tutorial) I am willing to try a soft mod to dump the HV and aid the community.
It is clear that the way to homebrew and CFW is paved with joint efforts
This is actually quite simple, bit of instruction (read through it), but the actual commands are very few, most of the text is for background detail.
For starters, download this CD ISO image: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/rele...owerpc+ps3.iso
Burn it to a disk, stick it in your PS3, make sure to format the drive (10gb for OtherOS - fine), then hit Install Other OS. It will detect the bootloader (.BLD), install it, and then tell you to set the default system to OtherOS - do so (keep the disc in)
On reboot, just hit enter at the kboot: prompt, which will start the install procedure - its very straight forward, just use the default settings.
Once installed (my install took about 2 hours, and appeared to freeze multiple times - don't worry, it didn't!), and rebooted.
I ran into an issue (it started yelling about missing rootfs), the BLD was "bad", so being lazy, I just rebooted to PS3 mode, and installed Petiboot as the OtherOS (it's only the bootloader).
That detected the Ubuntu install, which then booted right up. Then proceed to login , and then start up a terminal.
Issue this command:
[Register or Login to view code]
However, to actually get any use of the exploit, you are going to have to of course compile your own code, by either editing the exploit, or adding in your own code - so it's probably best to have a working development environment!
Thanks for the tut. I want to buy the stuff to pulse the bus. What is the cheapest way to achieve this? And the parts better be ordinary stuff that can be found in an electronis shop. I can pay 70 $
+1 I saw this one! Is it working?
And what is that that is in the center of image ? Like what is the square?
And what is that 300PF and 10 nf?
And which HEF4016B i need to use? they are : HEF4016BT.653,HEF4016BP,652,HEF4016BP PDIP14
NE555 - which one? It's like a little chip with 8 legs?
Thanks for the info jayjo but I could not find that item on my country. Any alternative?
Searched as: HEF4016 and got one result.. Looking into it...
SCL4016 IC DIP ECG4016-HEF4016 ?
