Enabling Homebrew

From PS3 Developer wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are currently several ways to enable homebrew on a console.

Prerequisits[edit]

  • You require Firmware 3.55 or below, if you have higher than this, than you will need to look at Downgrading Firmware
  • You cannot currently run homebrew on some of the later slim models, and none of the new CECH-30xx models.

Methods[edit]

Geohot Jailbreak[edit]

While outdated, this original jailbreak can still be used to jailbreak your console.

This is not a fully modified Firmware. It is simply a patch that allows you to run code.

It installs like any other CFW etc.

Dongle Jailbreak[edit]

Using an AVR/PIC or other active USB device with running specific code to exploit the USB descriptor (only works on 3.41 and older).

Linux[edit]

Just install Linux and run apps on it.

Since 1.60 up until 3.20: official supported as OtherOS.

Since firmware 3.21 up until 3.55: no longer official supported, but made possible with modified firmwares, see OtherOS++ and AsbestOS (http://marcansoft.com/blog/2010/10/asbestos-running-linux-as-gameos/).

BD Java[edit]

Browser based[edit]

Homebrew: Java, Javascript based

Jailbreaking: Right now, there are no exploits for browser. It's pretty basic one too, kind of IE6 for PS3, even mobile pages sometimes won't be shown correctly (Example: http://m.deviantart.com)
