How install Red Ribbon RC6 Linux with Rebug 4.21.1 ?
The Rebug 4.21.1 CFW can't create the OtherOS HDD partition:
It's recomended to install OtherOS using a 3.55 CFW before upgrade to 4.21.1.
OtherOS++ is supported by all REBUG REX EDITIONS and will detect your existing OtherOS HDD partition.
However none of the REBUG REX EDITIONS have emer_init.self patched (create smaller GameOS partition). We are working on a solution to this from GameOS.
In the meantime if you do want to create an OtherOS partition you have two options:
1: Use a 3.55 firmware that already has emer_init.self patched to the size you want.
2: Patch REBUG 3.55.3 REX EDITION in PS3MFW Builder
If you choose option 2 we highly recommend that you ONLY patch emer_init.self. Also the resulting PUP will only be able to be installed on 3.55 firmware as the spkg_hdr will be mismatched.
One final thing to note about OtherOS on 4.21.1 is that it function is slightly reduced at the moment due to the fact that we are not able to map memory like in 3.55 and below. The affected modules are ps3ram and ps3sbmmio.
Hopefully this problem can be addressed without having to release another firmware.
The REBUG TOOLBOX post shows the Boot OtherOS option on a screenshot. You must to use this option instead of the boot_otheros.pkg and reboot.pkg tools.
