PS3 Precompiled Toolchain for Win32 (01-24-2010) is Available


Sponsored Links
238w ago - With the recent GeoHot PS3 Hack news, we missed a PS3 Precompiled Toolchain (for Win32) update that Ifcaro released a few days ago.

His previous PS3SDK update was back in 2008, so it's definitely welcomed for those seeking to compile their own PS3 homebrew such as the "Hello World" OtherOS BLD sample (pictured below).

Some notes, roughly translated: Have long had compiled the toolchain ps3 and ps3sdk of mc and when I thought I had put it here, but did not want to put it to you test. Today finally I decided to test the hello world and it worked.

So here I leave the PS3 Toolchain & PS3SDK of mc. I have converted the elf to a bld and have run the hello world I managed to compile the toolchain and ps3sdk on windows with mingw. Then I went to compile the examples and I have generated an elf.

Package precompiled toolchain with the PS3 and the ps3sdk draft of mc. Tested on Windows 7 and Windows XP. gzip it and rename it to otheros.bld .. then it should work on the PS3.

You can convert the ELF to a BLD (although you need to convert the ELF to raw binary using "ppu-objcopy -O binary" before gzipping it), but if you have an otheros partition on your harddrive (formatted as EXT2/EXT3), it's more convenient to use mcload, which can run the ELFs directly.

Looking at it, try copying the folder "C:\ps3dev\ps3sdk" to "C:\ps3sdk" and giving it another go.

You could muck with the environmental variables etc, but try the above first - it may prove to be easier!

Thank you boss. I have found the book at B&N but it's $60 and my semester just started so I'm going to have to see if it's really affordable for me right now. Might buy a used one. I noticed it was from 1995, so I assume it's dated? Since it is basics my guess the basics haven't changed much in 15 years in that case?

Nobody ever said it was... did you even read (or understand) any of the previous posts?

That is exactly why topics like this are posted in the PS3 Dev section... to keep the "OMG exploit" kiddies out.
