Installing Petitboot
1. Put your otheros.bld file on to a USB disk, in a file called /PS3/otheros/otheros.bld. Assuming your USB disk is mounted at /media/usbdisk:

400°
270w ago - Today the first public beta release of BootMii for the Nintendo Wii console is available.

BootMii is a set of software that can be installed on Nintendo Wii consoles to provide added functionality, safety and convenience.

HackMii Installer v0.1 is capable of installing:

• BootMii public beta 1
• The Homebrew Channel 1.0.2
• DVDx

BootMii for Users: BootMii is a piece of software that can be installed as an IOS or inserted into the boot process. As an IOS, it provides a fast way to back up your Wii's internal NAND flash memory, and will eventually form the basis of a new generation of homebrew applications for the Wii.

Inserted into the boot process, BootMii provides you with a "safety net" - you can back up your entire Wii to SD in under three minutes! If you were to brick your Wii, BootMii would still run and let you restore your backup from SD, quickly and painlessly. BootMii also allows you to directly boot the Homebrew channel or other homebrew from SD, bypassing the "warning screen" and the rest of the menu.

Coders: You will have full access to both processors inside the Wii, and can inject code anywhere into the boot process. Want...

276w ago - I came across this site looking for Linux, but this looked like it would be better perhaps.

Hardware Requirements
• A computer to download and copy files on to media.
• Playstation3 with: USB Keyboard and Mouse (A Wireless USB Keyboard & Mouse is even better)
• Any of the following recording media: USB Flash or HD drive, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, BD-R, or BD-RE disc. If the PS3 has memory card slots: Memory Stick, SD memory card, or CompactFlash.

Note: Just as with any system, having both a keyboard and mouse simplifies things a lot. But it is possible to install with only a mouse, and possibly even simpler with only a keyboard!

Tip: With only a mouse it is possible to copy-paste characters from Help tabs.

Instructions
Download the PPC edition of OpenSUSE and burn it to a DVD or CD media using your favorite burning tool.

Preparing the PS3
Note: Updating your PS3 to the latest firmware is recommended before proceeding
