PS3 Alternate OS Question


#1

I’m interested in installing another OS on my PS3 but I would like the PS3’s default OS to remain as the default OS. I’m new to this.

When you install a new OS, does the new OS become the default OS or do you have to start up the OS from the PS3’s main menu?


#2

I’ve been wondering about this as well.

I do know that the PS3 can run a version of Linux that will let you DL MAME.

But I am not a computer person at all. I have no help for ya, but I will be keeping an eye on this thread. :slight_smile:

No, theres a feature after you install the other OS to go into Options, and load into that separate other OS. Restarting the PS3 and Booting into that OS.+

Thanks dude. Good stuff.

I have an orginal 60g PS3, with all the Backwards compatablitiy, etc. I dont want to risk messing that up, but a buddy of mine recently got a newer 40g, and he doesnt like it and wants to trade it in, but I might buy it off of him for the same price he can sell it for used.

Anywho, thanks again for your post, ULOVEMIKEROCH :smiley:
