Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. OtherOS was a feature available in the first versions of the PlayStation 3 video game console that allowed other operating systems, such as GNU/Linux or FreeBSD, to be installed on the system. This feature was made unavailable in newer models and removed from the oldest ones through a firmware update by Sony. The "Other OS" feature is disabled by firmware version 3.21 but still runs on older consoles that have firmware 3.15 or lower. However, on March 30, 2010 George Hotz (aka GeoHot) stated his intention to create a custom firmware for the PS3 to counter this move, warning gamers not to update their systems until he finds a way to keep the OtherOS option on the PlayStation 3. Hotz in July 2010 left the PlayStation 3 hacking and iPhone jailbreaking scene.
