Hello,

I recently made this guide on how to mine Bitcoins using Verement's Cellminer. The guide goes over how to set up the PS3 and install Debian. The guide is written for PS3s running firmware 3.15 and lower although I'm sure it could be adapted for jailbroken PS3s. Here are the files you'll need:

http://www.multiupload.com/64EOVGBF76 - The Guide
http://www.multiupload.com/YK1OH4TM0O - Pre-Compiled Cellminer for Debian Wheezy - 2.6.39‐2
http://www.multiupload.com/62SFTW9FGU - Debian Installer

Follow the directions in the guide and you should be up in no time at all.

Credit should be completely given to Verement - he is the Cellminer king. I just made the guide and changed some of the files.

You will only be getting around 22 megahashes. Not too much but if you have a PS3 that isn't doing anything, it might as well be mining.

The PS3 has very minimal power consumption when it is mining. The cost to mine with a PS3 is negligible. It's not going to make you a ton of money by itself but if you have some other miners and you want a kick, the PS3 might be your game.

Is it worth building a PS3 mining farm instead of a farm using ATI mining rigs?

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!

Would be interesting. Check Google for Folding@Home and Password Cracking specs.

Minimal power consumption? Are you sure? Did you try an power consumption meter?

The PS3 will consume between 90-120 W under full load. I guess consumption is in the eye of the beholder.

After some reading, if you have an older PS3 then it will consume more power, usually up to 200W. Mine uses anywhere between 90-120 though.
