    Recently Gitbrew told us about their partial RSX driver in the works. Today they have tweeted about the release of FreeBSD LiveCD supporting resolutions upto 1920×1080 with the obvious partial RSX driver (PS3 “graphics card”).

    This is for those interested in Linux on their PS3, nothing related to CFW or PC games running on PS3.

    Their site might be hammered at the moment with high download amounts, but you can download the ISO for the CD right HERE. To learn how to get OtherOS++ on your PS3 read THIS.

    The awesome glevand has managed to get wlan working on slim PS3′s using using the OtherOs++ function, here is a quote from the source:

    Wlan now working on slim ps3s. http://git.gitbrew.org/repos/?p=ps3/ps3linux/ps3-jupiter.git;a=summary Linux based for now. Freebsd and petitboot with wireless to come next.

    You remember when Gitbrew asked for donations and said they would release the RSX drivers for the PS3, they later released a few documents with information regarding the RSX, which led to a certain someone starting a conspiracy theory, claiming that “Gitbrew were scamming people” yaddy yaddy ya, which led some of Gitbrews followers to question Gitbrews integrity, people were blinded to the real story, durandal and glevand were working hard on releasing the RSX driver, but durandal was quite ill, problems with gall stones/kidney, which resulted in him being rushed to hospital, but this didn’t stop the uncalled for hate and abuse, anyhow, i will stop with the ranting and give you this awesome news, brought to you exclusively at PS3HaX by our very own daxgr, here is a quote from the offical thread:

    Well I am pleased to announce that RSX Driver for FreeBSD is released. The RSX driver is the product of hard work by durandal and glevand, who gave up many hours to accomplish this. So here you go, the link for the RSX driver: http://git.gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/linux/ps3rsx.tar.gz

    On a side note, may I add that contrary to public belief for 5 YEARS, the RSX doesnt not rely on DMA to process graphics, but rather uses PPU instructions to push objects to RSX VRAM. So… yeah another breakthrough by the team who scammed everyone…. Gitbrew.

    PS: To all those who started complaining about this noble effort to enable RSX on OtherOS(/++) , such as “gitbrew is a scam” or “they are just SDK samples”, check out the date of the file.

    Gitbrew was always about developing things for developers AND users alike.
    Sadly, users don’t always appreciate the effort, a simple omission to include the release URL, that was due to durandals medical condition and glevans personal issues, seems to be enough…

    Well keep that in mind, Gitbrew gave their word to release a RSX driver and succeeded; anyone who had cared to browse glevands directory WITHIN 24 HOURS of the donations would have seen it.

    Regards,
    daxgr@Gitbrew

    I will say on behalf of PS3HaX, on behalf of the decent PS3 Scene members and even on behalf of the haters, THANK YOU GITBREW :)

    Stay tuned for more exciting updates, right here at PS3Hax!

    Noob FAQ:

    • This will NOT lead to any new CFW or CFW 3.7x
    • This is like the “driver” to the PS3 graphics card
    • Its mainly for DEVS and not the average joe.
    • This is a LINUX RSX DRIVER.
    • If you don’t understand any of the terminology in this post…its probably not for you (unless you are willing to learn).

    Update 2:
    So there is some discussion/confusion about what the actual release is. Various devs around the scene are currently saying the following: The release is for Linux (as clarified already), and not for FreeBSD. Also this isn’t a TRUE driver in essence rather it is a Linux kernal module; the mappings to the RSX.

    In a nutshell, this basically gives you a more enjoyable experience on Linux on the PS3 (graphics wise). We will now be able to use the RSX gpu for graphics insetad of having to emulate from the CPU. This does not mean you can play World of Warcraft or install Windows 7 on your PS3.

    UPDATE 2:

    RC5 has been released, to quote:

    Published Release Candidate 5 with the following changes:

    • Fixed restart and shutdown problems.
    • Fixed repositories list needed for distribution.
    • Online updates available from the official distribution repositories.
    • Fixed hostname problem.
    • Added GFTP as FTP manager.
    • Added a keyboard configurator.
    • Fixed some problems with wireless connections on fat models.
    • Network-Manager-Gnome is now the default network manager.
    • Gnome-Bluetooth is now the default bluetooth manager.

    The download link is available at the project wiki.

    Online Update

    You can upgrade the Red Ribbon installation from the online official repository, you don’t need to reinstall the distribution from CD.

    This update is only designed for the RC 4 or lower with all previous updates.

    You need to connect the PS3 to the internet, open a lxterminal and download the file:

    wget http://redribbon.sourceforge.net/downloads/online-update-2011-09-01.sh

    Then, you can execute it:

    sudo sh online-update-2011-09-01.sh

    And wait until finished.

    If while executing it asks:

    You are running a kernel (version 2.6.38-powerpc64) and attempting to remove the same version. This is a potentially disastrous action. Not only will /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-powerpc64 be removed, making it impossible to boot it, (you will have to take action to change your boot loader to boot a new kernel), it will also remove all modules under the directory /lib/modules/2.6.38-powerpc64. Just having a copy of the kernel image is not enough, you will have to replace the modules too.

    I repeat, this is very dangerous. If at all in doubt, answer Yes. If you know exactly what you are doing, and are prepared to hose your system, then answer No.

    Do you want to abort removal now?

    You must answer NO.

    Some users like r04drunner from Elotrolado think the standard Linux distro’s for the PS3 have some limitations…so what does he does? Builds his own. The Debian Based Linux is called Red Ribbon, its actively being updated and below are the features it offers (and growing).

    This build can be ran via LiveCD or through media/HDD storage (recommended). Full tutorial and features can be found at read more link below.

    Features: (more…)

    dudu.clx from a french ps3-scene site has released a script for making it easier to install Linux on the Playstation 3. He also created 2 videos and planned to tweak the script a little more.

    Google Translation:

    PS3A linux-box v1

    The linux installer for ps3 otheros++ consists of a series of scripts that will run from petitboot once otheros++ partitions created correctly (success create_hdd_region.sh).

    It will be regularly updated to correct, improve and offer some support still more versions of Linux.

    You can find all the help around with linux on ps3 guide!

    You can find out all he offers through the changelog:

    Changelog v1

    - Installer available in three languages​​, English, French, Spanish.

    - Basic Installation debian and ubuntu.

    - Installation at the option of pre-compiled kernel or compile it yourself.

    - Choice of 4 modes of starts for Debian and Ubuntu (normal, full_HD, normal + wifi + wifi full_HD).

    - Choice of light configuration, or custom for Debian and Ubuntu (and many office applications).

    - Choice of evolution of Debian MintPPC.

    - Choice between versions for ubuntu hardy, hardy, intrepid, and maverick maverick.

    - Choosing to migrate to Ubuntu or Kubuntu Xubuntu (when choosing his office).

    - Configuring the wifi for FAT (ubuntu and debian).

    - Installing Fedora Core 12 with Cell SDK preinstalled (text only).

    Changes planned:

    - Fixed script and successful installation of Gentoo.

    - Added post-install Debian for Red Ribbon.

    - Added installation of Mandriva, Arch Linux, OpenSUSE, OSX Leopard.

    - Added a setup script in Fedora Core 12.

    - Choice of installing the IBM Cell SDK for debian and ubuntu.

    - Added support available from the script.

    - Design and Theme PS3A Adding a Linux Box for Debian / Ubuntu.

    - Integration into petitboot.

    Use ps3a linux-box:

    Prerequisites:

    - Have a PS3 with a CFW OtherOS++

    - Have set the hard drive

    - Restart the PS3 petitboot.

    use:

    - Go to the shell and type:

    Code:
    wget http://dev.ps3-addict.fr/ps3a/ps3a.sh
    chmod a+x ps3a.sh
    sh ./ps3a.sh

    Use ps3Et instructions! Just enter a choice from a list, the rest just happens!

    To illustrate how it works, I’ve made ​​two videos:

    Installing ubuntu hardy in 13 minutes, via telnet:

    ps3a-lucid-telnet.mov - YouTube

    Configuring the installation of ubuntu hardy, directly on the PS3:

    ubuntu-lucid-ps3a-2.mov - YouTube

    For setting up your Harddrive you can use Rebug OtherOS Prep Tool or one of many tutorials around the net.

    Up until now there has been a lack of code samples and no proper documentation that is open source for the PS3′s RSX “Reality Synthesizer”.  Homebrew has been forced to make due with use of the CELL Broadband Engine and it’s many SPU’s which has limited what can be done, keeping homebrew stuck to simple games and emulators of older consoles.

    Well that is going to change.  Thanks to the great group of developers that are  Gitbrew and thanks to the people who donated to help this become a reality.  With the release of the documentation, we will see  great improvements to homebrew and emulators.  The games should improve greatly too.  So keep you eyes on what will be happening in the future.

    To stay on top of what is happening with Gitbrew and their work, you can find them on irc.gitbrew.org:6697 ssl #otheros or  if you to would like to donate to them to show your thanks, you can find the links to do so on their home page gitbrew.org

    It is almost a year since the PS3 was hacked, it has been a time full of excitement and a time full of drama, it has been a time filled with court cases and lawsuits.

    It all started of in August 2010, when a little device was released, this device enabled game back ups and home brew on the PS3, Sony where hot on the heels of any one selling such devices, the original device, retailed at $100+, but clones soon emerged which were cheaper, around the same time open source versions began to appear, PSGroove from Mathieulh and his team, PSFreedom from KaKaRoTo, all these methods needed some sort of hardware and was only compatible with firmware 3.41 and below.

    At the end of December 2010 a group known as fail0verflow, exposed the PS3′s lack of security, this brought on a chain of events, including the PS3 Keys being released and eventually a CFW for 3.55 consoles, this then lead to GeoHot who had released a CFW, being sued by Sony, so things died down for a little while.

    An extremely talented developer/hacker known as graf_chokolo worked loyally on bringing back the OtherOS function that Sony stole from its customers, graf was only interested in the OtherOS function, he was only interested in bringing back, what we as PS3 owners payed for, he didn’t care about backups or the GameOS side of the console, his work was completely honest, but this wouldn’t stop Sony pestering him and unfortunately he was also sued, whilst he was fighting Sony he continued to work on the OtherOS function, but he was continually harassed by Sony, he was even raided on one occasion, so his work was put on hold.

    That’s where a new group of talented people came in, when we first heard of them, it was a member under the nick of glevand, who took on graf_chokolo’s work and brought OtherOS++ to the PS3, so it is my pleasure to post this interview i had with these awesome group of people:

    (Q.1)
    When and why did you get involved in the PS3 Scene ?

    Durandal - Me personally? I dabbled in a few things here and there that’d make a long and boring story, but it was when Sony began their aggressive litigation at the beginning of the year that Snowy and Das convinced me to help them with this new endeavour. We wanted to create a community safe enough that we could welcome any dev team, even when nobody else is willing to assist them. One of the unintended consequences of this is that we have a lot of very talented devs doing a lot of awesome stuff, so a lot of cross pollenation goes on between projects.

    Snowy - I’ve been in other scenes just partly / mostly testing out things and debugging stuff for developers. I heard about the ps3 stuff from fail0verflow and tried seeing what i could do to help out further. After graf_chokolo got raided for the first time i tried to help him a few days later. We were both shocked that no one offered him a shell to their ps3 and from there it just started to development into more stuff.

    (Q.2)
    So you are the creators of Gitbrew.org, what was your reason for creating such a site ?

    Durandal - After Mr. Hotz had his pleasant visit with Sony’s attorneys, a lot of sites pulled their resources out from under a lot of very good communities. We decided someone should take a stand, and set up a community with an infrastructure that allows safe communication and free flow of ideas. All of our servers are in secure datacenters, and I know the owners of most of them. Since I used to do forensic work, I set them up in such a way that if a server is compromised or seized, very little usable information can be pulled from it. Really about all anyone could do is come after me personally.

    Snowy - After most websites were getting either taken down or data was being removed due to dmca, we had to find a secure place that we could give to other developers that couldn’t be touched. It worked out pretty well and we’re still going with it.

    (Q.3)

    How big is your team and who are they(No names have to mentioned of course) ?

    Durandal - As far as the core team that keeps everything running, there’s only a handful of us. There are numerous groups with really awesome devs working on a lot of cool stuff, but we’re not allowed to give out any information on the number of people involved.

    Snowy - Everyone helps everyone so far, because of that a lot of stuff gets done behind the scene. It just takes awhile for some stuff to be released.

    (Q.4)
    You guys keep working hard, and give us brilliant work, so how did you feel when GeoHot gave in to Sony ?

    Durandal - Thanks… it’s nice to see we’re being noticed. As far as Mr. Hotz is concerned, he’s just an attention loving sellout. Maybe one day he’ll do seminars with Kevin Mitnick and HB Gary. To be honest, I don’t really think about guys like him. I’d rather stay focused on actually innovating.

    Snowy - I don’t agree with it, but it’s his life so you can’t really stay mad at him because of his decisions.

    (Q.5)
    Some sites received DMCA take down notices, do you receive many and if so does legal action not bother you ?

    Surprisingly we haven’t received one yet. Personally, I’m a tad disappointed. Guess we’ll have to wait our turn. As far as it bothering us, the way you deal with that kind of annoyance is to out annoy them.

    (Q.6)
    You used the work started by graf_chokolo, do you still have contact with him, if so do you know how his court case is working out.

    Durandal - He cheers us on from time to time. I don’t think we can say any more than that until after his case is decided. I did have one very inspiring conversation with him when this all began. I promised him that as long as he was willing to keep up the fight in the court room, gitbrew would keep doing what we do best. And when Sony finally grows tired of pestering the guy, there’s definitely a place for him in our dev team.

    Snowy - Yup, starting out was weird for setting stuff up, but after that I made sure I could help him in any way possible for development purposes. Graf, I have to say without you the scene wouldn’t be the way it is now. A lot of devs respect you because of it. Thank you for everything you’ve done man. Stand your ground and you will win, we’re behind you 100%

    (Q.7)
    What are your opinions on the PS3 Scene, the devs, the end users, Sony etc.

    PS3 Scene: I can only speak about what I’ve seen. It’s, well…different from the communities I came from before. There’s some really awesome groups out there, but I think a lot of it’s too focused on sensationalizing things like the keys Mr. Hotz leaked.

    The devs: All I can say is the PS3 community is lucky to have the level of talent a lot of these guys provide. Graf, KaKaRoTo, Mathieulh, tuxuser, etc are all guys I’d be honored to work with on any project for any platform. Maybe one day Sony’ll get bored of annoying them so we can get them all together under our roof. ;)

    The end users: Haven’t really had a reason to think on them much. Though more and more are using our solutions as an alternative to the official PS3 firmware.

    Sony, etc.: There’s no reason to speak ill of them. They do more to alienate their own community than I could ever do with any words I could write. They’re not alone, either. Too many companies place a monopoly on innovation when it comes to their platforms. It’s funny that Microsoft’s Xbox is probably the least restricted platform currently. I guess they learned their lesson by trying to fight Linux developers.

    (Q.8)
    When the likes of Sony Fanboys see people that do your work, they immediately lumber you with being a “Pirate”, what would you say to them to convince them that piracy and homebrew/linux are not the same.

    To be honest, I wouldn’t waste my time trying to justify myself to the lot. Sony does a better job of giving us positive PR in front of the fanboys than we ever could.

    (Q.9)
    What projects do you have planned for the future.

    On the PS3 we’ve got a few projects going on. Expect to see a suite of tools for blu-ray drives in the not so distant future. Also, there’s a good chance you’ll be seeing a linux video driver that makes better use of the RSX. I’ll also be furthering my work on distributed cluster computing on the PS3 and other platforms.

    In our other communities, expect to see more utilities for the kindle, and a lot more in the way of android development. Also, I’ve brought in a couple of my old friends to develop security-oriented tools for various platforms. Long story short…there’s very little we don’t have planned for the future.

    (Q.10)
    Several consoles are being released in the near future, the PS Vita and WiiU, do you plan on working on them ?

    If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be gitbrew…

    ——— ——— ———
    ——— ——— ———

    There may be a few more additions to the interview, but from what is posted so far, you can see the passion, you can see the dedication these guys have, everyone of you that have OtherOS++ on your PS3, should be very thank full to these guys and the work they continue to bring for our benefit, you can be guaranteed that they wont sell out either.

    With the interview over, i would like to personally request something from each of you and that is to send the guys at Gitbrew a little donation, it can be as little as $1, if one hundred people donate only $1 each, that’s $100, which helps a huge way to covering server expenses and it shows that you appreciate the work they do.

    To donate, please follow this link.

    For those following the developments of Red Ribbon Linux, an online repo is now available so you no longer have to install a new distro for each update.

    r04drunner has posted on his blog the following instructions:

    Now you can upgrade the Red Ribbon installation from the online official repository. You don’t need to reinstall the distribution again with every new CD published.

    This update is only for the RC 4 or lower, It will be included on the next release of the LiveCD. The changes are detailed at the project wiki, on Change Log section.

    You need connect the PS3 to internet, open a lxterminal and download the file:

    wget http://redribbon.sourceforge.net/downloads/online-update-2011-07-05.sh

    Then, you can execute it:

    sudo sh online-update-2011-07-05.sh

    And wait until finished.

    If while executing it asks:

    You are running a kernel (version 2.6.38-powerpc64) and attempting to remove the same version. This is a potentially disastrous action. Not only will /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-powerpc64 be removed, making it impossible to boot it, (you will have to take action to change your boot loader to boot a new kernel), it will also remove all modules under the directory /lib/modules/2.6.38-powerpc64. Just having a copy of the kernel image is not enough, you will have to replace the modules too.

    I repeat, this is very dangerous. If at all in doubt, answer Yes. If you know exactly what you are doing, and are prepared to hose your system, then answer No.

    Do you want to abort removal now?

    You must answer NO.

    Thanks to tenshou for news tip!

    Many people (the more advanced hackers), already know this but there still is some blurriness on what Linux OS works on 3.55 and what does not.  For those of you who are living under a rock the last few weeks, OtherOS was restored on post 3.15 consoles. OS is basically a program in which will let you turn you PS3 into a computer. It allows you to run some programs that you wouldn’t be able to without OS. Some popular ones are Linux and Ubuntu. Various information, tutorials on installing Linux can be found here.

    And as of right now, it seems like the PS3 firmware 3.55 will run most OS out there. As you can see in the chart below, there are still some OS that have NOT been tested for the 3.55 firmware.

    Chart from Gitbrew:

    If you want Gitbrew to try an OS that is not listed, let them know. Also, if an OS is not listed and you are certain it works, message them and they will add it to the list.

    It has been quite a while since we have heard of the awesome PS3 Developer, graf_chokolo, yesterday he posted this on his blog:

    Hi guys, no money left anymore. Going to jail soon probably because i cannot pay court costs.
    But i’m ready to stand up for everything i said and go to jail for that too. It’s not important to win, more important is to show them that we are ready to fight, that they cannot scare me off easily. Yeah, i’m ready to go to jail for my believes and my principles.
    Most of people probably think that all computer and kernel hackers are weak kids, hiding in a cellar, eating pizza whole day, writing software and looking for attention :-) Maybe, but that’s NOT me. And i will get out eventually and continue my work. My work means very much to me.

    The folks over at Gitbrew have tweeted that they have managed to get Petiboot/Dualboot working on 256 mb NAND ps3′s (“phat” PS3s). A guide is expected to release soon, but great news for all you hardcore-Linux fans out there.


    For more information on how to boot GameOS/OtherOS on your Slim/flash-PS3s check out the original thread here. We will keep you updated when the guide is released.

    cyberskunk has released two very useful PKG’s, one called Boot OtherOS++, which as the name suggests, boots OtherOS and OtherOS prep Tool, which prepares your PS3 HDD for installing Linux, here is a quote from the source:

    OtherOS Prep Tool is used to prepare your system vflash and install petitboot ready to install Linux. IT DOES NOT INSTALL LINUX. For tutorials and videos on how to install Linux head over to gitbrew.org. OtherOS Prep Tool is based off of graf_chokolo’s and glevand’s source and is a one or two step solution to getting petitboot up and running and on your way to installing Linux on to USB or PS3 Hard Disk. At the moment it only supports 3.55 but we will add support for lower firmware soon.

    REQUIREMENTS
    16MB NOR PS3 (Model CECHH or Higher)
    3.55 OtherOS++ enabled firmware installed

    (If you want to use REBUG 3.55.1 grab PS3MFW Builder 0.2 Portable
    from here with the tasks pre-selected to add OtherOS++ support)

    FEATURES

    One Step Prep if installing OtherOS to USB Hard Disk

    Two Step Prep if installing OtherOS to PS3 Hard Disk

    Resize vflash to 6 different sizes

    (Original, 11GB, 22,GB, 43GB, 65GB and 83GB)

    Create or Delete vflash region 5, 6 and 7 separately

    Create or Delete ALL vflash regions at once

    dtbImage.ps3.bin included in pkg (no need to have it ready on USB)

    Install different dtbImage.ps3.bin from USB

    Checks that vflash region 7 create matches vflash size

    Detects and displays current vflash size on start up

    Auto matches new size to current size on start up

    If you can use PS3MFW Builder 0.2, then you can add OtherOS++ support to your Rebug CFW, the rebug guys have released a .tcl task file, here is a tutorial on how to use it:

    CREATE OTHEROS++ ENABLED REBUG FW:
    If you want to OtherOS++ enable REBUG we have provided the .tcl task file for patching the Lv1 Hyperviser with PS3MFW Builder 0.2. It is the EXACT patch_lv1.tcl from gitbrew.org minus the lv1 memory mapping as it is already patched in REBUG. We can not take any credit for the task file or PS3MFW Builder 0.2 Portable. We have provided them at the bottom of this post for your convenience as we didn’t fell releasing a new PUP just to add these patches was necessary.

    1: Add the .tcl file to the tasks folder of PS3MFW Builder 0.2. It will appear as OtherOS++ Lv1 Hypervisor patches for REBUG in the task list.

    2: Deselect ALL tasks except OtherOS++ Lv1 Hypervisor patches for REBUG.

    3: Use REBUG firmware as your input firmware.

    4: Select output directory and filename.

    5: Click on Build MFW

    6: Rename output PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP and install on the PS3.

    OR

    1: Download PS3MFW Bulder 0.2 Portable Win32 from the bottom of this post

    (All of the tasks have been pre-selected for you).

    2: Click on ps3mfw.exe

    3: Use REBUG firmware as your input firmware.

    4: Select output directory and filename.

    5: Click on Build MFW

    6: Rename output PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP and install on the PS3.

    Your new REBUG PUP will have the same OtherOS++ compatibility as OtherOS++ CFW.
