There should be a command “boot-game-os” you can run from the terminal and it should reboot. Wait, trying to run that command, it says “command not found”… another WTF…
After some more digging, it turns out the command resides in the “/sbin” directory, which users don’t have access to… (even root? man…)
So we need to make a sym-link. You can do this as a regular user, but you need to “su”, then run
cd /bin

ln -s /sbin/boot-game-os boot-game-os
Then, you can just go to the “start” menu in TDL, and there is an option then to “Boot Game OS” - works like a charm, reboot and you are back to the PS3

Unfortunately when you mod a game system to run a non-supported application you face risks.

However this forum should offer some help. From what I can see formatting your drive should return the system back to its original stage. You will lose any and all data.

Can i reboot my ps3 using lenux boot disk


Yes, Ofcourse.
Instructions
    • 1 Select and download a Linux distribution to download. Your options are Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSUSE and Yellow Dog. Ubuntu and Yellow Dog have better support for PS3 than OpenSUSE and Fedora. Links are provided in the first Resource.
    • 2 Locate the boot loader included with your Linux distribution of choice and rename it to "otheros.bld" so the PS3 recognizes it. Your bootloader is either named "kboot" or "petitboot" followed by a version number.

  • Create a folder named "PS3" on the CD or Flash drive. Create another folder named "otheros" inside the "PS3" folder. These folder titles are case-sensitive--enter them exactly as they appear here.
  • 4 Save the "bootloader.bld" file in the "otheros" folder. If you are using a CD, burn it now. See the second Resource on how to burn a CD using tools included in Windows.
  • 5 Insert the Flash drive or CD into the PS3.
  • 6 Go to the "Settings" column of the PS3 main menu, select "System Settings," then "Install Other OS." The PS3 then searches for and starts installing the boot loader from the Flash drive or CD.
  • 7 From the "Settings" column again, select "System Settings," then "Default System." Choose "Other OS" from the options listed on the right.
  • 8 Burn the .iso of your Linux distribution of choice to a CD, if you want to boot the PS3 from a CD. If you're using a Flash drive, see the third Resource on how to put a running Linux installation on a Flash drive.
  • 9 Remove any disc already in the PS3 and turn it off.
  • 10 Insert the CD or Flash drive. The Flash drive goes into one of the PS3's USB ports, located on the front face, in the bottom right-hand corner. If you insert a CD, the PS3 automatically turns on.
  • 11 Turn on the PS3, if it hasn't turned itself on already. Select your Linux distribution from the boot loader menu to boot the PS3 from the Flash drive or CD.

    I bought a cricket broadband device for internet servoces and i tryed to hook it up to my ps3 via usb in the front of my ps3 and it dnt work what am i doing wrong?


    Ok-here is your problem, the broadband card (any broadband car for that matter) needs to have drivers and software installed to function- And the ps3 does not allow you to install 3rd party software or drivers - The only way you can use a wireless broadband card ona ps3 is to install linux on your system and use your ps3 as a desktop PC, however the ps3's ability to run linux depends on the model and age of your system, newer slim units (from what I have read) do not support the "Other OS" feature of its predicessors , I own a first gen 80gig with reverse compatability, and run linux (its cool) however I havent had any hands on experiance with the newer systems. if you have a home pc you can buy a router (you have to buy one that supports USB cellular broadband devices-so do some research to make sure you get one compatable with your card) and once you have your card configured to the wifi router you can use the ps3 wifi and get online that way- Bummer I know but I went through the same ordeal using an altel huwawei broadband card

    What is linux on the ps3?


    The original PS3 can run Linux using the "Other OS" option. This option was removed in the PS3 Slim. More details here:

    I have comcast high speed internet but no computer can i hook the ps3 up and still get on the internet on it.


    Yes, the PS3 had an Integrated web browser so internet access is possible with it, you can use a usb mouse and usb keyboard as well...Its not as easily navigated as a PC but it will do most things online. Another option you have is to install Linux on the ps3 by creating a 10g partition, when you do this you loose all saved game data on your system but you can do a system backup prior to installing linux. all you need is an external usb drive to back up your system. Once linux is installed you have a fully functional PC on your ps3...Neet hu...Instructional videos can be found on YouTube

    Upgrading PS3 HDD


    You can upgrade the hard drive to a bigger one just as long as it's the same physical size as the original one. The 40GB PS3 is technically capable of backwards compatibility. It's just that Sony's OS doesn't support it on that model (maybe, there will be a firmware update that will allow it in the future). If you install Linux on the PS3 (which Sony officially allows you to do), then you can install the PS1 emulator (it's called ePSXe) and the PS2 emulator (it's called PCSX2). Both of them are free to download for Linux. The only thing that won't make the 40GB model the same as the 80GB is the finish of the console, lack of built-in memory card reader, lack of built-in WiFi, and only 2 USB ports. But those aren't neccesary.
