PS3 AsbestOS v2.01 Installer Now Renamed as BootOS Arrives

Sponsored Links
200w ago - Today Kmeaw has updated his PS3 AsbestOS Installer to v2.01, which is now renamed as BootOS at the request of [Register or Login to view links].

Download: PS3 BootOS v2.01 Installer

From Marcan42's Twitter: "I would appreciate it if kmeaw stopped using the AsbestOS name for his hacked up project, and released his modified source as per the GPL.

Anyone is free to modify it, but unless you're contributing to mainline, don't use the name "AsbestOS". And you must release source."

To quote: No, it's not a new application. We just uploaded a new version of our asbestos installer and decided in the process to give it a new name.

Quick release notes:

  • New name (duh!)
  • Hosting problem is solved.


  • Delete asbestOS installer, install bootOS and run.
  • Launch it from lv2 patcher.

I'll update later, with more info.

ok for SDTV users... After you run the bootos installer and it asks you to run lv2 patcher if you open up your ftp application you'll find the kboot.conf file in /hdd0/, you can change the video mode from 131 to 1 or 2 here to run it on sd tvs.

Just make sure you do it before your first boot and remember to save it. I just spotted it there now gave it a try and it works. with the kboot.conf file there you can pretty much run any net installer you want not just debian or ubuntu, im installing YDL at the minute so I might do a proper write up later if it goes ok.
