    [Answered] Can i get OtherOS back help?


    Hello,

    I have a PS3 fat that id like to get otheros back on. I'm wondering if there is anyway to do this without risking a PSN ban. I just want to be able to install linux on my PS3 again. I've seen a lot of posts about jailbreaking and stuff but i have no desire to run game backups or homebrew. Is there a way to just unlock OtherOS?

    Thanks.

    PS: Haven't been on the site since they removed OtherOS. Thanks

    You can downgrade your ps3 to fw version 3.15, which will give you the os option back.

    Will that still let me play on PSN and watch BD's?

    no, you'd be on firmware version 3.15

    There's no way to have otherOS and PSN/ latest firmware at the minute when there is you'll hear about it
