Text below is selected. Please press Ctrl+C to copy to your clipboard. (⌘+C on Mac)
  1. Install OtherOS on HDD (for all PS3 models)
  2.  
  3.     All tools are located here: http://7track.org/~glevand/public
  4.     Users who installed OtherOS on VFLASH region 7 previously should read below
  5.  
  6. You will need the following...
  7.  
  8.     Usb Keyboard or Telnet/SSH access
  9.     CFWXXX-OtherOS++ (CFW 3.41, 3.55, 3.55 22GB)
  10.     setup_flash_for_otheros.pkg
  11.     install_otheros.pkg
  12.     boot_otheros.pkg - sets boot flag to boot otheros
  13.     create_hdd_region.sh - a script to create the hdd regions
  14.     dtbImage.ps3.bin.minimal (NAND) - rename to dtbImage.ps3.bin
  15.     dtbImage.ps3.bin (VFLASH)
  16.     reboot.pkg - reboots the ps3
  17.     optional - boot_gameos.pkg - sets boot flag to boot gameos
  18.     optional - enable_wlan_on_fat (Fat PS3 Only)
  19.  
  20.  
  21.  
  22. NOTICE: All the tools should beep everytime they are ran. If you don't get beeps during one of the steps below then stop doing anything make sure your doing everything correctly and then contact me via IRC at OtherOS++ support: irc.gitbrew.org (ssl) #otheros using your IRC client or using this link
  23.  
  24. ALL PS3 MODELS ARE SUPPORTED!!!
  25.  
  26. 1. Install the latest CFW 3.55-OtherOS++ (If you already on 3.55 you should install 3.55 OFW first via recovery and then install the above CFW via recovery)
  27. 2. When installation is finished, go to recovery menu and choose "Restore PS3 System" This will format your HDD
  28. 3. Install all PKG files that you downloaded above
  29. 4. Now your GameOS should use only the half of your HDD unless you downloaded the 22gb firmware file (Currently working on a better approach)
  30. 5. Run setup_flash_for_otheros.pkg (for all PS3 models)
  31. 6. Reboot the PS3 normally (Important the next programs wont beep if you don’t)
  32. 7. Now run install_otheros.pkg. make sure the dtbImage.ps3.bin is on the root of the usb drive It will typically take 15 to 30 seconds to run.if it doesn't beep try a different usb port (NAND owners should use dtbImage.ps3.bin.minimal, rename it to dtbImage.ps3.bin).
  33. 8. Now run boot_otheros.pkg.
  34. 9. Now run reboot.pkg.
  35. 10. You should be in petitboot now. It has a grey/black background with a few options. Exit from CUI to shell. To make life easier for you, connect to your PS3 with a telnet/ssh client. as you are required to type a lot depending on what distro/kernel you decide to install and copy and paste will save you a lot of time
  36. 11. From the telnet shell type the following without quotes, “/tmp/petitboot/mnt/sda1/create_hdd_region.sh”
  37. 11. When that is completed type “reboot” without quotes
  38. 12. We need to use the grep tool for this so type “grep -i | dev/ps3” wihout quotes.
  39.    You should see now new HDD device on petitboot, /dev/ps3dd.
  40.    That's your OtherOS HDD region.
  41.    Don't touch any other HDD regions if you don't know what you are doing. Use only ps3dd
  42.    device for your Linux installation. Use parted to partition it and create GPT partition
  43.    table on ps3dd. GPT is supported by both, Linux and FreeBSD.
  44.  
  45. Be warned, if you damage your GameOS HDD region, GameOS will reformat HDD and
  46. remove your Linux HDD region in the process. You have to do the above steps again.
  47. Don't mess with GameOS HDD region and GameOS won't mess with your OtherOS HDD region.
  48.  
  49. --------------------------------------------------------------
  50. For users who installed OtherOS on VFLASH region 7 previously
  51.  
  52. You have to restore your VFLASH before doing the above steps.
  53. Be warned, this step is NOT for NAND owners.
  54.  
  55. 1. Install my latest petitboot
  56. 2. Boot petitboot
  57. 3. Run script restore_vflash.sh
  58. 4. Reboot. GameOS should reformat your HDD again.
  59. --------------------------------------------------------------
  60. Partitioning of the PS3 Drive
  61. 1. In the shell of petitboot type without quotes “parted /dev/ps3dd”.
  62. 2. type “mklabel gpt” without quotes.
  63. 3. type “mkpart primary 0 2GB” without quotes (created 2GB partition for swap).
  64. 4. type “print” without quotes (this shows you how much space left you can partition).
  65. 5. type “mkpart primary 2GB [the rest of the hard drive here] without quotes (e.g. mkpart primary 2GB 21.6GB).
  66. 6. type “quit” without quotes.
