Please be patient guys, iím working day and night on HV reversing and Linux booting
Regarding dual boot GameOS+Linux, yeah, itís definetely doable, iím implementing it currently
Regarding dual boot GameOS CFW + GameOS OFW, is also doable, but harder. In both cases we need a custom HV. All HVs are nearly the same in all firmwares from SONY, and i know it very good and can add functionality, patch or remove it however i want.
Booting Linux from VFLASH/HDD or decrypted LV2 kernel from VFLASH/HDD is just a small proof to SONY how good i know your HV
Or should i say now my HV
Without patching HV you cannot get GameOS rights on 3.15 with Linux. So custom HV is still needed. And that is exactly what iím doing right now, creating custom HV. And with original HV from 3.15 you wonít be able to communicate with Update Manager or Dispatcher Manager e.g.
Just booted petitboot from VFLASH on my 3.41 PS3
Created a new VFLASH storage region of size 16MB and stored there uncomressed petitboot compiled by me with openwrt
I only patched HV, didnít touch any Linux files
Sorry marcan, i will stick with petitboot
I intend to install Debian Linux on this weekend on my HDD
Greetings to SONY
OtherOS is back
But now with GameOS features. Stay tuned.
Dual boot GameOS+Linux is close
Look at that piece of dmesg output guys
ps3disk_init:588: registered block device major 254
ps3_system_bus_match:354: dev=7(sb_01), drv=6(ps3disk): miss
ps3_system_bus_match:354: dev=6(sb_02), drv=6(ps3disk): match
-> ps3_system_bus_probe:365: sb_02
ps3disk sb_02: ps3stor_probe_access:70: 3 accessible regions found. Only the first one will be used
ps3disk sb_02: First accessible region has index 1 start 524312 size 130611352
ps3disk sb_02: ps3da is a Hitachi HTS542580K9SA00 (76319 MiB total, 63775 MiB for OtherOS)
3 accessible HDD regions
All GameOS regiosn are accessible
I guess i wonít have sleep on this weekend. Sray tuned.
Here is the complete dmesg output: http://pastie.org/1528974
And RSX works with petitboot
Guys, someone compiled latest openwrt, i didnít manage because gcc couldnít build. If someone knows what is wrong with gcc for powerpc64 in openwrt please contact me
Hehe, i should take care where i install my Linux or else GameOS wontí boot
Yeah, iím cross compiling it on x86 Linux.
Holy crap, guys, unbelievable
petitboot can read UFS filesystem of GameOS UNENCRYPTED
I have access to all GameOS HDD regions.
Here is a snippet from ďhexdump -C /dev/ps3da | lessĒ: http://pastie.org/1529241
Stay tuned, itís certainly not the last good news from me
Holy crap, allmost all VFLASH regions are accessiable
ps3flash sb_03: ps3stor_probe_access:70: 5 accessible regions found
