Kmeaw 3.55 PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) to Add Linux Dual Boot

Sponsored Links
194w ago - Keeping in line with the latest PS3 Linux Dual-Booting work from PlayStation 3 developer Graf Chokolo, today Kmeaw has stated the following to Dukio on his upcoming 3.55 PS3 Custom Firmware update, to quote:

"We haven't heard from Kmeaw for quite some time, so I managed to get a hold of him and it seems he might bring us another interesting release that should comes in the form of CFW. No, it's not 3.60 CFW, if you still don't get it.

I was thinking of a CFW that has bootOS integrated so it gets executed when you power on your PS3 (and switches back to GameOS on user's request via menu or ssh). It's not hard to make it. But recently I read graf's announcment that he is going to accomplish the same task. So I don't know, if such CFW from me would get any demand.

Also I got bootos-installer and lv2patcher patches from an anonymous hacker who have added 3.15/3.41 support. I'm going to merge them into my code and release the next version.

If you have any ideas about what would you like to have, please tell me."

I'd like to say: This is the great and wonderful. My Gentoo backup on flash drive is up on kmeaw 3.55 CWFW with bootOS.

Thanks for you all people working for this master piece for any who loves Linux.

yes there is demand for a dual boot kmeaw CFW... I am still stuck with OFW 3.15 in hopes that there will be a relatively clean way to boot both gameOS and linux.

I'm fine with what we have so far, but I do understand your point.

How about... Figure out how... to BOOT an unmodded PS3 back-up from a PS3 Linux distro of any sort. NOW THAT WOULD BE COOL!
