Video: Standalone Linux on PS3 Slim 27C3 Fail0verflow Demo

Sponsored Links
220w ago - Today PlayStation 3 hacking group Fail0verflow has tweeted news of a Standalone Linux PS3 Slim 27C3 Fail0verflow demo that Marcan42 wanted to show off during this year's 27C3 but couldn't due to the video not working.

From the video's caption, to quote: "This is what the fail0verflow 27c3 demo *should* have looked like. As it turns out, the reason why we didn't have working video and had to fall back to an SSH demo was because this Slim is too new to run version 3.15 (what we tried to run), since it does not correctly support this particular revision of the RSX. So here's the same demo, except with version 3.41, which does work."

For those who missed it, pytey of Fail0verflow was also recently interviewed by the BBC.

The video can be seen below, and here are some related Fail0verflow tweets:

Standalone Linux on the PS3 Slim demo (with video): http://goo.gl/8oZVj (this is what *should* have been the 27c3 demo, had video worked) The sniffer/flasher code is very small, it should work on just about any FPGA. The important bit is the number of I/O pins.

To all those people asking about npdrm: we're not going to work on that because it's not required to bring linux back to the ps3. You need a USB interface for USB comms (or at least a PHY, but that's a lot harder) pretty much (of course the S3E needs power and the usual stuff too)

We didn't break game security, Geohot did (by releasing metldr keys). We just did the minimum required to regain OtherOS. Sony illegally removed an advertised feature (OtherOS) for existing customers; we're only bringing it back.

Hehe, there is my Tux - again ! What an adapter he uses to make the HDD shown on the computer ? Just an SATA to USB adapter or what ? Because my PC can't access the HDD due the encryption.

a dual boot (linux/gameos) ps3 would be awesome. it's also cool to see linux booting standalone on the smaller ps3. if we can get the tools needed to make homebrew ps3 apps ported to linux on the ps3, we could have "cheap" dev stations.

OMG, that's so nice... and running on Dos partition and Linux filesystem. and future Dual-boot with Game-OS. WOW.

these guys at Fail0verflow are amazing and truly deserve more recognition for their great work.
