In the article in question I read that Wololo was contacted by CapetLeVrai, a scene member, who managed to get PSP ISO's running on official firmware 4.41. However, before you get too excited, you do need a PlayStation 3 running official firmware and a PS3 running CFW to accomplish this. I will also add that I don't own a PSP or two PS3's. So I take this with a pinch of salt. What do you think?
About PSP ISO's Running On PS3 OFW 4.41Rumor:
The current technique will probably not blow your mind for now, as it requires you to own both a hacked and a non hacked PS3, but it could open huge opportunities in the near future if the right people decide to look into that. The basic idea is that after being installed on a CFW PS3, the iso can be transferred to the OFW PS3 through the integrated Data Transfer Utility, and will still run perfectly fine.
HOW IT WORKS:
The PS3 allows you to copy data from one PS3 to another, usually when you want to transfer all your existing content in the case you bought a new PS3. This is done by connecting your two PS3s with an ethernet cable. What CapetLeVrai did, which sounds simple enough but appears to work, was to install the game on his hacked PS3, then copy the entire content of his hacked PS3 to the OFW one with the Data Transfer Utility, and the hacked iso then simply accepted to run on the OFW PS3.
Please note I havenít confirmed myself because Iím beyond lazy and donít want to lose my OFW PS3′s content (copying from your hacked PS3 to your unhacked PS3 will erase the previous content!) but from what I can tell this is legit.
Now, why would it be interesting if this requires a hacked PS3 in the first place? Well, it shows that once installed, the game seems to be able to bypass the standard DRM security checks on OFW that should prevent it from running in the first place. Or, rather, that the hack perfectly tricked the OFW PS3 into believing the game was legally acquired. Which means that if people had a way to run a package installer on official firmware PS3s, there could be a way to install and run psp isos (and, who knows, PSP homebrews) on the latest PS3 Official firmware.
Is it far fetched? Probably. But exciting? Definitely.
Enjoy the video, in French. If you are able to confirm this and post a video on your own, please do credit CapetLeVrai for this discovery, as, as far as I know, nobody else had found that (at least publicly) before him.
