How to put your PS3 into Factory/Service Mode with an iPhone 2G, 3G & iPod Touch 1st Generation!
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!]
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.
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!)
Go to "Cydia", and tap on "Search", and type: "OpenSSH", and Install this too!
Download at your Computer: "FileZilla FTP Client" connect ur iPhone/iPod too your Wi-Fi (Works the best).
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".
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".
Now it's al done, close FileZilla.
Turn off your iPhone/iPod.
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.
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.
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"
