How to install Yellow Dog linux on your PS3

Console Hacks

So the first thing that you need is a copy of Yellow Dog Linux which you can grab from here http://us.fixstars.com/support/downloads/ actually before I get into this, basically Yellow Dog Linux is a version of Linux that is designed to run the PS3 so essentially you can install another OS on your PS3 which is cool right?.

Anyway, now that you know that, what you need to do is select the mirror that is closest to your country, obviously mine was the Australian FTP mirror which for me opened up in Cyberduck (An FTP program for mac) if your on windows you can use Winscp from there it will open up Cyberduck or Winscp or whatever you have and you need to navigate to iso then download “yellowdog-6.0-DVD_20080207.iso”.


Ok so once you have the image either open disk utility (/Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility) on mac then put a blank DVD into your DVD drive and click burn then select your iso or use Nero if your on windows and it will guide you through the steps. (Note: Make sure you have it connected via HDMI) Once its burnt you need to:

  • Insert the Yellow Dog Linux DVD Into your PS3
  • Go to System settings on your PS3 and select the format utility then go to Format hard disk then select yes and select other as the partition setting also select quick format. ** This will delete your save games and photos etc. so back them all up **
  • After it has partitioned your drive go to Settings> System settings then go to Install other OS and it will look for the disk once it has found the YDL disk press X to confirm that it has found your YDL disk and then go to System Settings then Default System and set OtherOS as your default system when it asks you to boot OtherOS confirm.
  • Your PS3 should now start booting the YDL Disk after it reboots, once it reaches kboot plug in an external USB keyboard and mouse and enter “install_ps3_MYRES” without quotes but REMEMBER to replace MYRES with your TV resolution for e.g install_ps3_1080p
  • It will automatically start the installation process, once it has started the installation process just basically say yes to everything and just to note, Yellow Dog says that you wont screw up your PS3 partition during the installation.
  • Once it has installed just enter your desire username and password etc. and it will boot.

If you at any stage want to go back to your Game OS just enter ps3-boot-game-os then hit enter at kboot before linux boots and it will take you back to the regular PS3 software. Enjoy! :D. Also check out Tech webcast at http://techwebcast.info

  6. Tyler says:

    Hey Bilsta57,

    at the end you say “if you want to go back to your game OS”

    that meaning in order to play games you have to boot it that way?

  7. Bilsta57 says:

    @Tyler: Hey man, yeh if you boot back to the GameOS it will be set as your default OS so every time you reboot your PS3 it will go to Game OS then you change the default OS on the PS3 to Other OS to go back to Linux its fairly simple. Thanks for the comment man :D.

  8. Tyler says:


    No problem man, and also, is there any way other than nero to burn the disc? or does it have to be done through nero?

  9. Bilsta57 says:
