This is awesome! So would we be able to access the PS3 HDD and edit or replace files through AsbestOS, similar to FTP? as I can't run any homebrew on my 3.41 due to having a faulty blu-ray drive.
It's awesome !!!
With a full acces to spe and rsx, we can run all emulator and more from linux. Maybe a ftp, firefox, xbmc (let me dream ) Soon a full unbridled otherOS.
Since AsbestOS has access to all of the level 2 calls, it shouldn't be hard to implement some sort of HD access. Ideally, we'd finally get a full disc driver, but until then we could access HD through an application like Comgenie's Awesome File Manager ported to linux.
gentoox is a port of gentoo for xbox 1... yet that did not mean a lot to many xbox owners... honestly, people are porting linux to every gadget these days, and they stop at that...
I can't say i am VERY exicted for this since i only had a PS3 slim and i got that last week. So, i can't say i know the otherOS like most people here know. However, this is still great news for the scene. This could also develop other homebrew and possibly lead to other exploits for programmers to mess with. I am even hoping for a way for people to create 3d games and play it on the ps3.
and besides exploiting there are million other reasons, as for example RSX enabled.. XBMC as it was in good old xbox1 days.. and other stuff i'm too lazy to write...
