Requirements[edit | edit source]

  • OtherOS++ with SS Patches
  • Linux Kernel with glevand's/graf's patches (red ribbon rc6 will do the trick, since it has the embedded kernel)
  • [the exploit] / [version ports]
  • NOR console with a NOR dump (the exploit isn't adapted to NAND consoles yet, no MMIO available)

  13. Make a nor dump by typing

    dd if=/dev/ps3nflasha of=nor.bin bs=1024
  15. Execute the exploit
  16. Type This
