OtherOS Supported on “3.21” courtesy Geohot?

A few days ago, Geohot vowed ps3 owners not to upgrade to 3.21 and said he’s working on a workaround that will allow you to continue to play games online as well as keep your Linux partition.

Known for his exploits on the iPhone Geohot has definitely had his fair share of attention on the internet & this new development is sure to attract more. He posted a video on youtube demoing his custom 3.21 firmware hack while still having install OtherOS feature available in system settings. No release date for now but expect another announcement soon.

This is what he had to say on his blog,


Here is a video demoing my “custom firmware”. I would have added something showing off the new features of 3.21, but oh wait, there aren’t any.
This can be installed without having to open up your PS3, just by restoring a custom generated PUP file, but only from 3.15 or previous. It’s possible this CFW will also work on the slim to actually *enable* OtherOS; I’ll know when my infectus gets here.
No release date yet, use the proxy hack to play online with 3.15
Note to the people who removed OtherOS, you are potentially turning 100000+ legit users into “hackers.”
