Lo! It would seem that “Other OS” will return to the PS3, albeit in an unofficial capacity. (Do you honestly think Sony will ever sanction the return of “Other OS”?) Well-known tinker graf_chokolo says he’s brought back the option to install other operating systems, and that it’s “coming soon.”
Says Mr. graf_chokolo:
My approach will enable OtherOS to have the same access rigths as GameOS, it means access to Dispatcher Manager, Update Manager, VFLASH, HDD encryption/decryption, isolated SPUs and RSX of course.
GameOS is only good for games, for PS3 development and hacking is Linux or FreeBSD with GameOS rights are a lot better. And i want a clean approach for booting Linux, not like AsbestOS, it’ not very clean.
Sounds like a full-on Linux installation to me, which is all that people ever wanted.
