graf_chokolo has been hard at work on his Linux kernal and has released v2.6 today bringing many features and updates. The biggest update is the ability to write/read off the PS3 RAM, which can be useful for hypervisor hacking…but be warned if you dont know what you are doing you can brick your PS3! His kernel is fully supported with AsbestOS.
To quote the known changes:
- Added support of several storage regions to PS3 storage library
- Improved PS3 disk block device driver
- New drivers for PS3 NOR and 3 RAM misc driver for full access to HV memory
- Added new HV calls
- Added extra debug messages for SPU isolation
