    OtherOS pdaXrom-NG Bootloader v0.1.1 for PS3 Linux Available


    Back in January, the initial OtherOS pdaXrom-NG Bootloader v0.1 for PS3 Linux was released.

    Many were confused that it was some kind of "iSO Loader" for PS3, but to clarify it is not. What it is, is a Linux-based OS Selector front-end for the PS3.

    Today Sashz has made available pdaXrom-NG Bootloader v0.1.1 along with the source code, however, an actual changelog is not posted yet.

    Download: http://wiki.pdaxrom.org/downloads/PS3/bootloader/pdaXrom-ng-otheros-0.1.1.bld / http://wiki.pdaxrom.org/downloads/PS3/bootloader/src/ps3boot-0.1.1.tar.bz2 / http://wiki.pdaxrom.org/downloads/PS3/livecd/pdaXrom-ng-ps3-26022009.iso

    Installation
    -Download bootloader 'pdaXrom-ng-otheros.bld', rename it to 'otheros.bld'.
    -On your USB stick or CD create the directory /PS3/otheros/ and copy 'otheros.bld' file to it.
    -Insert CD or a plug USB stick into PS3 and go to System->System Settings->Install Other OS. PS3 should find and install bootloader.
    -Go to System->System Settings->Set Default OS->OtherOS to boot up with pdaXrom-ng bootloader.
