also... i had to do mkdir to have "home/user"
i did it by doing "mkdir home" then "cd home" then "mkdir user"
("user" is my user name)
and it tells me "too many levels of symbolic links"
no matter if i change directories to home/user and try to copy from there, or if i am in /tmp/petitboot/mnt/sda1/metldrpwn... i cant copy the file to the hdd no matter what i try to do.
but i didnt think you had to copy it to the hdd... can you not just "make" and "run.sh" from the usb device?
i admit it, i am not a linux guru, i have been trying now for 3 days to get this going. i have an e3 flasher and have downgrade many ps3's, but i just cant wrap my head around linux.. it will take a while to learn. tho the more i use it the more i understand it. i can navigate directories now :D and make directories. i just need a little help to get this going.
i have a valid dump from my e3 flasher in the metldrpwn folder, i just need to dump the root key so i can run it through the converter program
i think you are following my old guide lol..
and with copy i meant insert ur USB stick.. open it and copy to your user folder, it's not hard is it?
