    12-09-2010 09:09 AM #1 [Tut] Put PS3 into Service Mode w/ iPhone/iPod.

    READ THIS FIRST:!
    This only works on: iPhone 2G/3G and iPod Touch 1G!.
    And only on PS3 with 3.55 or 3.50.. REA
    U cannot DOWNGRADE or JAILBREAK ur 3.55!
    This method puts your PS3 into Factory/Service Mode on 3.55 yes! But u can't do anything with it now atm.

    Good luck!

    How to put your PS3 into Factory/Service Mode with an iPhone 2G, 3G & iPod Touch 1st Generation!

    Step 1:

    Jailbreak ur iPhone 2G/3G // iPod Touch 1G (Google for Redsn0w or PwnageTool, or BlackRa1n. Do NOT use Spirit to Jailbreak!!) [Don't know if it works above iOs 4.1!]

    Step 2:

    U will now see on your Springboard, "Cydia".
    Open up "Cydia". First let it download all the packages!
    Tap on "Search", type: "Bootlace". And Install it.

    Step 3:

    U will nog see on your Springboard, "Bootlace", start it up.
    Now tap on, "OpeniBoot" and Install it. If it's done, tap on "iDroid" Install this too. (Can take a while!)

    Step 4:

    Go to "Cydia", and tap on "Search", and type: "OpenSSH", and Install this too!

    Step 5:

    Download at your Computer: "FileZilla FTP Client" connect ur iPhone/iPod too your Wi-Fi (Works the best).

    Step 6:

    SSH Into ur iPhone/iPod.
    At the "Host" type the IP adress. (Settings > WiFi > Arrow next to your Wifi name.)
    At "Username" type: "root" , At "Password" type: "alpine" , At "Port" type: "22".

    Step 7:

    Browse to "/Private/Var/iDroid" , once there u'll see a few File's.
    Now drag and drop the File's what u downloaded, into the "FileZilla Client" ,

    The file names are:
    "Android.img.gz" and "zImage".

    Step 8:

    Now it's al done, close FileZilla.

    Step 9:

    Turn off your iPhone/iPod.

    Step 10:

    Put the Fat model PS3 "Off" via the Switch, for the PS3 Slim users, put the power cable out.
    Connect the iPhone/iPod with the PS3 on the "Right USB Port"!
    Turn the switch back "On" , PS3 Slim users, put the power cable back in.

    Step 11:

    Now put on your iPhone/iPod. Go to "Android" (Move it via the Power Button)
    Once one "Android" , press the "Home" button on your iPhone/iPod.

    Step 12:

    U'll see your iPhone/iPod is loading file's..
    When your iPhone/iPod says:
    Waiting for Device to be ready (Or something like that)
    Press on your PS3 the "Power" button, and the "Eject" button.



    Now your PS3 will go On, but u will see only a Black Screen, the PS3 Turns "Off"
    Just hit the "Power" button, (it takes a while when ur PS3 starts up, maybe 10/15 sec or less.)
    U will now see: "Factory / Service Mode".


    Now Enjoy!

    Has anyone tried this yet to confirm that it works?

    I'm a little confused about step 7.

    It says, "Browse to "/Private/Var/iDroid" , once there u'll see a few File's.
    Now drag and drop the File's what u downloaded....."

    What files was I supposed to download? Is it just meaning to take the android.img.gz and the zImage out of the Idroid folder on the phone?
