So if I install YDL with original bootloader then install THIS bootloader over the top will YDL still work?

This is what I got. As soon as I get to the browser I hit enter on the cd Icon that contains the iso image pdaxrom-ng that I burned, but the ps3 freezes on this screen:



I think I'm doing something wrong, but if somebody has this bootloader working already, please give me a tip or let me know what I'm doing wrong.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I Had already ydl 6.1 running pretty good on my ps3, and I just went ahead and tried installing this new bootloader, but when it loads up the screen shows just a joystick and the background.

I already followed the installation steps on this forum. The only thing I'm not sure about is the iso file. Do i have to burn that image on a disk and have it on the ps3 drive while the otheros.bld loads up??

Hopefully somebody does a step by step guide. Since I search the web but no luck yet

i had ydl 6.0 installed (didn't use it much ) and slapped the bootloader over, but i just get a black screen over hdmi.
i can change the resolution via keyboard (the controller can't connect) and the tv shows that the resolution has been changed, but it's still just black.

You need to allocate space for the OtherOS partition, so yes. However, once you do it and install an OtherOS file, you can just overwrite the .bld so no, you won't have to format each time.
