Sponsored Links
224w ago - The first version of an open source toolchain for PS3 is available today courtesy of ooPo, meaning a possibility to create PlayStation 3 hombrew without requiring the Sony SDK.

Download: Open Source PS3 Toolchain

From the included ReadMe file:

What does this do?

This program will automatically build and install a compiler and other tools used in the creation of homebrew software for the Sony PlayStation 3 videogame system.

How do I use it?

1) Set up your environment by installing the following software:

autoconf, automake, bison, flex, gcc, make, makeinfo, patch, subversion, wget

2) Add the following to your login script:

export PS3DEV=/usr/local/ps3dev
export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/bin
export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/ppu/bin
export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/spu/bin

3) Run the toolchain script:


Where do I go from here?

Hi all,

I have got 2 questions:

1. How do you actually setup a program like CodeLite to use the compiler and linker?
2. Do you need to use the make_package_npdrm.exe from the Official PS3 SDK to package the program or is their already an open-source version?

How about this time also support Windows as a development platform, I for one don't want to have to switch between linux and windows.

With this toolkit (compiler, linker) you can create ps3 (lv2) executables, by using the C sources and header files from the (official) ps3 sdk.

But you cannot release anything that is using the C sources and header files from the (official) ps3 sdk legally..
