    Very good my question if there is any way to undo Red Ribbon Linux or what step must be done to leave the PS3 again without anything thanks and regards.

    The only way to remove it is to completely reformat the hard drive and ps3 system itself.

    Good I have formatted the HDD and the console, I talo OFW 4.86 then install CFW from rebug 4.86 and everything is fine but when it comes to entering safe mode it does not enter this mode it enters the Linux installation I do not know because what I do is take out the HDD and format from the PC and do the installation again and now if it enters safe mode once everything is installed I don't know why by formatting the HDD from the console the Linux partition remains but from the PC it doesn't. I hope what happens will help what I say. Thanks and great regards.

    I am currently trying to install Red Ribbon linux. I tried the Automatic partitioning and does this. There is no way to do the Use Current Partitioning. Please help.

    Read steps 12 and 13 in the first post on this thread. You need the script file also.

    i recommend run "live" from usb memory stick or install to usb hdd. To install to ps3 hdd you have to get a cfw pup that allows it and then format ps3 hdd to create the partition. It not much faster than usb so its not really worth all the hastle.

    Create_hdd_region.sh is the script yes. There are different pups with different sizes. The one I used was 4.70 rebug but dont have it anymore. Im not sure where to get any now as i am only using usb now.

    Did you install the patched update i provided? That's the only way to get it to install as it partitions the drive for OtherOS++.

    EDIT: The "Create_hdd_region.sh" file is used to esentially format or initalize the OtherOS++ partition, so the Red Ribbon installer can see it to install to. All of the necessary files that are needed i have provided as a package on the first page.

    Please make sure you read all the steps carefully.

    You could try and use GParted or something to make sure the entire drive is wiped.

    How tf do I even use this? I can't install programs, so I'm stuck with the completely useless iceweasel browser, which crashes (the browser, not the ps3) when I try to load a site that isn't just text. I can barely load this site on it. I just switched to my phone to post this.
