New ‘patch’ gives greater control over the PS3.
Games Industry is reporting that hackers have found a way to bring back the much fought after feature of the PS3, the ‘OtherOS’.
Cop-favorite hacker Graf Chokolo gave the OtherOS++ patch his nod of approval, saying it was “very useful for HV hacking” and grants complete control over the PS3′s memory.
OtherOS was one of the many touted features of the PS3 when it released back in 2006. The feature allowed users to install Linux (and other free operating systems) on the system and run it from console itself. However, last year in March, Sony decided to remove the feature citing security reasons, which peeved off many enthusiasts and hackers.
