  • Fixed the hang problems when shutting down and rebooting.

You need to connect the PS3 to the internet, open a lxterminal and download the file:

wget https://redribbongnulinux.000webhostapp.com/downloads/online-update-2013-01-30.sh

Note: When you turn off the PS3 if the red light is blinking, don’t worry. Now a syscall is used to simulate a problem and to turn off the PS3, but actually everything is ok :).
