Kmeaw 3.55 PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) to Add Linux Dual Boot

Kmeaw 3.55 PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) to Add Linux Dual Boot 700°
205w ago - Keeping in line with the latest PS3 Linux Dual-Booting work from PlayStation 3 developer Graf Chokolo, today Kmeaw has stated the following to Dukio on his upcoming 3.55 PS3 Custom Firmware update, to quote:

"We haven't heard from Kmeaw for quite some time, so I managed to get a hold of him and it seems he might bring us another interesting release that should comes in the form of CFW. No, it's not 3.60 CFW, if you still don't get it.

I was thinking of a CFW that has bootOS integrated so it gets executed when you power on your PS3 (and switches back to GameOS on user's request via menu or ssh). It's not hard to make it. But recently I read graf's announcment that he is going to accomplish the same task. So I don't know, if such CFW from me would get any demand.

Also I got bootos-installer and lv2patcher patches from an anonymous hacker who have added 3.15/3.41 support. I'm going to merge them into my code and release the next version.

If you have any ideas about what would you like to have, please tell me."
 

Graf_Chokolo Working on PS3 3.55 HV CFW with Dual Boot Linux

Graf_Chokolo Working on PS3 3.55 HV CFW with Dual Boot Linux 850°
206w ago - 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.
