264w ago - As a follow-up to his previous work, today JaicraB has updated his blog entry with a PS3 OtherOS Base Exploit and the related Source Code for PlayStation 3 developers.

Download: PS3 OtherOS Base Exploit (.BLD File) / PS3 OtherOS Base Exploit Source Code

This comes shortly after gow3forme shared a relatively larger PS3 OtherOS Exploit Module which seemed to be loaded (the command lsmod showed: exploit 10497032 1 - loading 0x000000000012000 (P+)) but nothing appeared on the video.

To quote, roughly translated: Good. Here you have a minimum base to build the otheros.bld. The BLD takes up 30 Kb and has functions to the HDD with ext2 to save the DUMP. The functions are described.

Call table incorporates LV1 and ASM functions. This ready to assemble the mechanism of the exploit. I hope this helps those concerned who did not know where to start. It has been compiled with the toolchain pdaXrom.

Yeah, but according to one of his posts, he can access a SPU to sign his code. I wonder why he hasn't done it. Maybe it didn't work like he thought.

if TeamHades gets a CFW up and running it'll most likely be run through OtherOS first and then they will try to work on getting it running through the GameOS.

This is just an assumption at the moment. Depending on the process needed to actually INSTALL the CFW (let's say the exploit trigger or using some other trick with bug in the game etc.) it might me NOT as simple as "reinstall the same" fw sadly ...

Haha, this is getting exciting. I've got a slim, so all I can really do is sit back and watch right now but hopefully we'll be able to get cfw soon!

That's one thing that will make me happy. My 60GB YLOD 4 times this year so $ony exchanged it for a slim and now I miss the 60GB. If the slim gets OtherOS it will lessen the pain of losing the 60gb a little. The next would be PS2 BC. That would make me like the slim.

How can it work on the slims when they don't have the option for OtherOS?

ok i think i get it now.. so this is a very small linux OS, or its the starting point to making a very linux OS so we can get a better more complete lv2 dump via the cold boot method.
