PS3 Hacker named "graf_chokolo" has managed to install Gentoo Linux on his PS3 Slim internal hard drive.
That's cool but it serves no purpose other than to show he did it.
so? does it run better compared to pc? I don't think so
That's what I just said, it's cool that he did it but it serves no purpose as it would be better on PC.
this is pointless at best!
So the reason of the jailbreak - to get back removed features - has ONLY JUST come out? Proof that the jailbreak was for piracy, nothing more.
These "U MAD?" meme has ran its course.
Apparantley graf owns over 100 legit games, it was people using the code to make up backup managers, he never inteded/wanted to use backups.
i hope graff gt a job a sony i mean that guy did most of the hardwork for hacking the ps3, dont get me wrong i dont support hacking, but if any hacker should work for sony it should be graff>hotz
you're an idiot. AsBestOS and other linux methods have already been released in the jailbreak a long time ago. This is just graf's method.
is that ok, putting something back on the PS3?.. I dont know. Edit: this is a question
So if it won't help people pirate ps3 games (apparently), it's only purpose is using Cell for intense number crunching without buying kit off IBM? I had no idea that hardware hackers cared about things like that... You can just buy a graphics card at less cost than a ps3 and run computations on that with more gflops under the hood. Is he just trying to prove a point?
Is he just trying to prove a point? Basically yes But only that he could do it. No real point other than that.
Took them what 3 months and it took only 1 week to get pirated games to run on ps3. Yeah this shows it was definatley done to bring other os back...
Or maybe it's just easier to get a console to boot media it already recognizes from another source? This guy basically had to add something the PS3 Slim never had to being with the other OS function in a primitive form.
um BS much go back to watching the press conference failoverflow had
Lol, isn't this the guy that was full of **** a while ago, when he claimed to have cracked the new firmware, with people like KaRakators or whatever his name is laughing that he actually believed himself?
I think you are thinking of Mathieulh. That guy is full of it.
huh, people really want to have a nice slow chugging linux on their PS3. I tried to install ubuntu back in the day on my PS3 before the removal. Complete shit, ran like a turtle, no flash support, obviously it didn't have any graphics drivers either so no games of any kind except maybe chess. The best thing you could do on it was run some old Sega genesis roms which was not worth it.
Relax guys, it's called proof of concept. Sometimes you do these things just to see if it can be done. Sometimes you do it to exercise your own skill. Sometimes you do it for the e-peen. Either way, THIS type of hacking, at least, doesn't hurt anyone.
It doesn't, but it's unfortunate that for 1 person that does it without wanting to hurt, there's 100+ others that look for malicious means and for themselves.
I just hate it when people say "what's the point?" Yea, there might be better, more efficient ways do do it, but then you're completely missing the point. It took me forever to port linux kexts to mac so that I could triple boot my Sony laptop. Not everything is working, some things that ARE working aren't working that well, but that's not why I did it.
