PSFreedom is Now Ported to the Motorola Droid Phone!


Sponsored Links
203w 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.

Updated instructions and files for Droid Free: psfreedom.com/wiki/Motorola_Droid

Droid Freedom Update: [Register or Login to view links]

Requirements

Motorola Droid running a compatible ROM (check list below)
Droid-Freedom kernel (Thanks to Fat Man and Sick Boy!)
Shortest Micro-B USB Cable possible
PS3 Firmware 3.41

Installation Instructions

Copy Droid-Freedom.zip to SD Card

Reboot phone into recovery

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, AS YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RESUME NORMAL USB FUNCTIONS IF YOU DO NOT:

Select Nandroid and Backup to make a backup of your current rom

Choose "install zip from sdcard"

Select "choose zip from sdcard"

Scroll down until you highlight Droid-Freedom.zip and select it

Choose "yes" at warning

After install finishes reboot phone

Your USB will now function as PSFreedom and PSFreedom alone

Then, simply follow the normal PSFreedom instructions:

Turn the switch off in the back of your Playstation 3 or unplug the power cord.

Then plug in your device and plug in the power cord of the PS3 or flip the switch back on.

Once you have that done, quickly press the power then immediately after press the eject button (as fast as you can).

You will know it work when it takes a slightly longer time (about 5 seconds more) to turn on.

The PS3 should boot up and you will see two new options in the games portion of the XMB (cross media bar).

That's it, you've rooted your PS3, and you are ready to install Homebrew applications!

You can now safely disconnect your device and return it to normal operation mode while enjoying this exploit.

Removal Instructions

Reboot phone into recovery

Select "nandroid"

Select "advanced restore"

Choose the nandroid backup that you made previously

Select "Restore boot"

Select "Yes - Restore Boot"

After restore finishes, reboot phone.

Notes

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.

The timing seems to work better if you dont have any other USB devices plugged in.

For some reason the file was not copied to /data. I have it working now, thanks!
