The only thing I'm not sure about is the iso file. Do i have to burn that image on a disk and have it on the ps3 drive while the otheros.bld loads up??
Based on what little info I could find, I believe you are right... assuming you can launch it via disc from within the Bootloader.

I Had already ydl 6.1 running pretty good on my ps3, and I just went ahead and tried installing this new bootloader, but when it loads up the screen shows just a joystick and the background.

I already followed the installation steps on this forum. The only thing I'm not sure about is the iso file. Do i have to burn that image on a disk and have it on the ps3 drive while the otheros.bld loads up??

Hopefully somebody does a step by step guide. Since I search the web but no luck yet

i had ydl 6.0 installed (didn't use it much ) and slapped the bootloader over, but i just get a black screen over hdmi.
i can change the resolution via keyboard (the controller can't connect) and the tv shows that the resolution has been changed, but it's still just black.

but to install this do i need to format my hdd and is it required every time i want to install a different bootloader?
You need to allocate space for the OtherOS partition, so yes. However, once you do it and install an OtherOS file, you can just overwrite the .bld so no, you won't have to format each time.
