OtherOS++ Newbie Questions
Hello, I hope this is the right section for this.
I am interested in enabling OtherOS++ on my Rogero 4.40 PS3 Slim. (Had 3.55 Kmeaw, enabled QA Flag, Installed Rogero 4.30 and then updated to Rogero 4.40)
From what I've read, what I need to do 1st is use Rogero's downgrader to 3.55, then edit a Rebug 3.55.x REX firmware in firmware builder to allow for a Linux partition allocation, followed by installing the edited FW.
Then I need to use the Rebug Toolbox to actually allocate the space for Linux, and then install the newest Rebug 4.30.2 REX, install Petitboot from it, and then finally use that to install Linux itself.
*Please correct me if I am wrong. the info I've found on google isn't very clear, and this is the 1st time i'm trying it, and don't wanna brick the ps3.
*I also wanted to ask what is the best Linux distro to use, in case one's PC suddenly died and one cannot currently purchase another.
I want to use it mostly as a basic desktop, browsing the web, downloading torrents. (If possible, also watch videos, listen to music, though push come to shove I can do that in GameOS with Showtime).
*And is there a distro that allows using the RSX Enabler kernel patch to actually accelerate basic desktop operations.
*In case there is a detailed guide that is relevant (not 2 years old etc), I would love a link as I couldn't find one.
