We report before about the unfinished version, now kmeaw, with collaboration from kha0S has released the all new asbestOS Installer for your penguin lovers. As graf_chokolo is under Sony’s watch, this is the best Linux on PS3 we can get so far.
Well folks, it’s done!
I’ve been working with kmeaw last couple of weeks in asbestOS v2.0. This release is easyer to use, and eases the installation of Debian GNU/Linux in your PS3. Right now, it’s the best way to overcome the loss of OtherOS feature.
Hope everyone enjoys it!
We have made some videos! See the asbestOS v2.0 video walkthrough
