215w 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.

Its not a command your looking for... you copy the files to the sd card itself... Connect the phone to the pc and copy the file boot.img to the sd card. and Copy psfreedom.ko to /data/ on root of device

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 advise people to use this with EXTREME CAUTION. Since when you activate this hack, it disables USB charging, you're screwed if your phone's battery runs dead and you don't have an external battery charger (which i suspect most owners won't).

You should probably put out a note to use it only with = or > say 50% battery, and immediately restore a proper kernel upon successful execution of the exploit on the PS3.

I'm sure it won't be much longer assuming the droid x has the proper USB controller.
