PS3 AsBestOS V1.2 Installer: Install Linux on Slim/FAT

Today, Kmeaw and company, have updated AsbestOS loader to version 1.2. The new release no longer requires a network setup to install/setup. Support for "Fat" PS3 models also arrived earlier today.

Quote from Kmeaw:

kmeaw: latest version is v1.2
kmeaw: it can work without ethernet cable at all
kmeaw: however it still supports ethernet booting for developers that would like to experiment with their own kernel builds

How To:

5. install lv2 patcher v9 or higher: (111.43 KB);

6. attach an ethernet cable, connected to a network with a dhcp-server (just for the initial boot, it can be a SOHO router - just anything with DHCP); (NO LONGER NECESSARY IN ASBESTOS 1.2+)
