    Was talking to someone who was developing something for the pixi, but it wouldn't work with insmod at the terminal. Keeps saying -1 Device or resource busy. He told me that it seems the pixi can only have 1 gadget loaded at a time, and rockhopper was built into the kernel, so he didn't know how to turn it off, since initctl emit G_ROCKHOPPER_REMOVE doesn't work. Any ideas? I came here because I knew it would be the best chance if it's possible. (Or finding out if it's something else.)

    You are correct, the rockhopper module will prevent the loading of any other modules that attempt to use the usb port. I have worked around this by recompiling the kernel and specifying to compile rockhopper as a module.

    This is the only solution I know of but is a bit of a pain since you can't really expect casual users to load a new kernel + modules just to run your software.

    I think a better solution would be for Palm to release the next kernel with Rockhopper compiled as a module.

    So you got PSFreedom working on your Pixi then?

    If you have a guide I'd be more than happy to try it

    I don't have a ps3 and haven't touched PSFreedom. If you folk are interested in disabling the rockhopper module then get kernel compiles setup as per Custom Kernels - WebOS Internals and then change the line in your .config:
    CONFIG_USB_ROCKHOPPER=y

    to this:
    CONFIG_USB_ROCKHOPPER=m
