And here we go :-) Linux is officially back on PS3 3.41. It?s even better now :-)
It has all GameOS features, it has access to all HDD, VFLASH and FLASH regions. It can communicate with Dispatcher Manager, Update Manager, SYSCON Manager, it can run isolated SPUs, and of course RSX :-)
I uploaded some screenshots of the Debian distribution i installed on my PS3 HDD. The Debian distribution is a just normal PPC64 Linux without any modification, all i changed was my dutifully and beloved Hypervisor :-)
I modified the Hypervisor so far that it boots the Linux bootloader petitiboot from VFLASH and petitboot loads the Linux distribution installed on a HDD region. And what is better than Linux to boot Linux ? :-) I practically implemented Dual Boot feature GameOS+OtherOS in the Hypervisor :-) Linux is not the only OS which can be booted like this from PS3 HDD.
Now we don?t need GameOS anymore to run our code, no need anymore for SELFs and we can start now programming our own games on PS3 on Linux :-)
I will make everything public :-)
And greetings to SONY :-) Hand me over the maintance and implementation of PS3 Hypervisor :-) I will improve it and maintain for free :-) We all will benefit. HV hacking is great fun :-)
Here are some screenshots:
PS: Compiling now my own Linux kernel on PS3 itself :-)</p>
