If you are downloading and installing YDL 6.1, you may have noticed that there are two ISOs available on ydl.net and on the public mirrors:
Download this DVD if:
- You are installing on a newer PS3 model. This includes the 80GB PS3 (Model Number 98015 and later) and the 160GB PS3 (Model Number 900006 and later).
Download this DVD if one of the following conditions is true:
- You are installing on a supported device other than a PS3
- You are installing on a earlier model PS3. This includes PS3s with Model Numbers preceding the 80GB PS3 (Model Number 98015) and the 160GB PS3 (Model Number 900006).
If in doubt...
If you are not sure of your PS3 model number, we recommend downloading the yellowdog-6.1-ppc-DVD_20081119.iso. If you encounter an issue where you are unable to boot into YDL, download the other ISO (yellowdog-6.1-ppc-DVD_20090201_NEW_PS3.iso) and follow these instructions to install the update.
