How to install Ubuntu 7.10 Edition v1.0 on your Sony PSP

This is a screenshot of my Sony PSP running firmware 3.95 GEN 2. I installed Ubuntu 7.10 v1.0 which was released a few days back. Unfortunately there is only a French version. Hopefully the English version will be released soon, so if English is your primary language, you may want to wait. Or just try the French version in the meantime.

This is not a real ported version of Ubuntu for the PSP. Its just another a homebrew application for the PSP.

Download and Install Ubuntu

To get it on your PSP, first make sure you have Homebrew installed, i.e. not Sony's original firmware. You need at least 3.71 M33.

Starting Ubuntu

Its in French. No worries if you don't know the language. I don't speak French either.

Enter the username. Press "start" and enter "admin" as the username.

Next enter the password/Mot de passe. Press "start" and enter "admin" as the password.-

Ubuntu should start normally unless you haven't copied all files properly.
