OtherOS now?? –
From what I have read the main reason the whole hacking the PS3 started was because Sony removed Linux. Thats fair. I can understand that. But now how many of you who have downloaded the firmware,the first thing you did was go check to see If you could play backup(pirated) games rather then try to install LInux.OK..I see one hand up from the guy back there in the 143 row..
you can have otheros back. you have to downgrade to 3.15, but its there.
it will take a lot of work to be able to bring it back to current firmwares because its not there. also, otheros doesnt work with the new revision of RSX chips in the slim's so it wont work for those anyway.
also, (if they are still working on it) fail0verflow was planning replacing the highest possible boot level (bootldr, lv1, lv2 im not sure) with a linux bootloader of some sort.. time will tell.
AsbestOS is still being worked on. Who would want to use the crummy OtherOS that Sony supplied, considering they locked us out of 90% of the functionality (no access to certain memory addresses, no access to the video card, etc). Marcan has been working full time on this since f0f, and we should see a .PUP we can flash soonish.

I think when Marcan finishes that, I'm gonna try complete my PS3 laptop idea.. That'll be fun, fully functioning Linux laptop, reboot and it's a PS3!
