Play stations Running Linux!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I have been poking around the internet and found you that the Playstation 3 is capable of running any form of Linux. The problem is I have the new slim model that no longer supports this ability mad.gif

Does anybody out there know how I can get around this little kink? I read up that you can jailbreak the system to put ISO loaders on it, so I will be able to simply install via disk. Then again, I also read online that you will without a doubt get banned upon jail breaking.

Dont think this is allowed but ohwell! You need to have the firmware of at least 3.55, if anything higher you will not be able to get OtherOS capabilities.

From what I know. Only the fat models supported linux. Even then, Sony sent out an update that no longer allowed linux to be on the playstation. It was a very big deal when it occured.
