View Full Version : Open Source PS3ToolChain for PS3 released

September 8th, 2010, 18:24
ooPo over at Github.com has released the open source version of the PS3 Tool chain. This basically allows you to make your own homebrew on the PS3 without requiring the Sony SDK (conveniently released with the PSGroove v1.1 update).

What does this do?

This program will automatically build and install a compiler and other tools used in the creation of homebrew software for the Sony Playstation 3 videogame system.

How do I use it?

1) Set up your environment by installing the following software:

autoconf, automake, bison, flex, gcc, make, makeinfo, patch, subversion, wget

2) Add the following to your login script:

export PS3DEV=/usr/local/ps3dev
export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/bin
export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/ppu/bin
export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/spu/bin

3) Run the toolchain script:


Where do I go from here?
