PSFreedom is Now Ported to the Motorola Droid Phone!


189w ago - According to girlsname on PSX-Scene.com (linked above), PSFreedom is now ported to the Motorola Droid phone!

It is compiled against 2.6.32 kernel, so make sure your rootfs is from a ROM that uses that kernel. It was tested on CyMod6 but anything from that kernel should work.

Download: PSFreedom Motorola Droid Port / Droid Freedom Update

To quote: This port was really done as a collaboration between a bunch of people. Too many to name but if they want a mention let me know and I'll oblige.

Instructions:

Copy boot.img to sdcard

Copy psfreedom.ko to /data/ on root of device

Boot into recovery mode and via adb cd to sdcard and run "flash_image boot boot.img"

Restart device normally and run Terminal Emulator.

In terminal type "su" then enter

Then type "insmod data/psfreedom.ko"

Follow normal PSJB steps

Notes:

Droid must be rooted for this to work.

Your phone will not be able to charge or use USB of any sort other than JB when flashed with this kernel.

It is highly recommended that you make a backup of your current ROM. This will allow you to easily restore just the working Boot partition via Nandroid->Advance Restore later

Use the shortest USB cord you can find as it helps with timing

Timing may be a bit wonky so it might take a few tries. It does work though.

So i have a droid, and a bum blu-ray drive on my ps3. I own SC4 and would like to play it again. With this from my phone do i need to use a modified descriptor.h, or is this ready to go for playing backup's through backup manager?

Sounds like an awful lot of stuff to go thru to do this! I hope that whenever they release an iPhone/iPod port, it wont be this difficult! I doubt it would... hopefully just be a cydia package... hopefully soon we can find out!
I doubt that it will more difficult than this port (which, really, this port is not difficult to work with). I just wish that a port for the iPhone/iPod/iPad (or whichever of the Apple devices they are going to release it for) is released soon. These are the most popular devices, yet one of the last ports to be released.
