March 25, 2011 // 3:07 am - Recently Graf_Chokolo revealed that he is working on a PS3 3.55 HV CFW, which will have dual boot Linux built in.

To quote from Dukio: I plan to implement dual boot feature in HV, just like i did on my PS3 3.41, and you can boot with it either gameos or linux or some other system like freebsd. You won’t need any bootos on gameos for that. I will also patch HV and enable more features

I will do it on PS3 slim, first i will resize HDD and add a partition for Linux there

Expect more features coming in as the HV patching continues. Oh, and he is working on a 3.55 FW only at the moment, although on the newer firmware versions is possible according to graf.

Now for 3.55, on other version offsets are different so the code is the same but offsets to patch are different.

When ask about the progress of his lawsuit and if he requires more legal funds, graf_chokolo had to say this:

It's very slow, for now it’s enough i think, thanks.

I have no huge news yet regarding lawsuit but soon I think I will have.

WOW! i never thought that would even be possible! dual booting! #winning! LOL

That means we can have CFW as well as OFW running, so we can just switch to OFW if we need to use PSN, etc. For playing backups offline, we just switch to CFW.

He's russian/ukranian, just lives in Germany, as far as I think.

He's name is Alexander Egorenkov and he's fluent in russian, so... duh!

Would this help to fix the 3.56 HDD issue?

Dual booting 3.60 and 3.55 could be possible with this ?
