A few questions about HDs
A few questions about HDs –
Sorry for being new but i have looked all over the site looking for information on this haha.
So i recently purchased a usb board ATAVRXPLAIN-ND. I have downloaded all the files for it and everything. seems pretty self explanatory.
My question is whether i can plug a external into the open usb slot thats not taken up by the dongle and the ps3 will recognize that and i can have backup manager backup files to that drive to play them off of?
I saw a few posts kind of mentioning it but no one really said for sure if it was possible.
Also while im here when an update comes out for PSGROOVE how easy will it be to upgrade to that?
Yes, an external drive can be plugged into another available USB port. However, my understanding is that you can only plug it in AFTER the exploit has run since the dongle must be the only USB device plugged in in order for it to work.
I assume that when a new version of PSGroove comes out, you just erase and re-program your USB device the same way you did originally, but using the new hex code for the new version. I can't imagine how else you would do it.
AH ok thats what i figured. i was reading something in the PSjailbreak faq about harddrives. as long as the file parts are not over 4gigs it will work.

Hmm...now I'm not so sure about the hard drive thing. According to Pacote-san in the massive PSGroove thread (p.108, post #2697 (PSGroove)), he's got them both plugged in at the same time with no problems. But regardless, you can definitely plug in a USB hard drive in the other port, but you may or may not have to wait until after the exploit has run before plugging it in.
Oh, and for the PSGroove update thing, don't take my answer as gospel. That's just how I assume it would work, but obviously I can't know for sure since there's no update yet
I should point out my PS3 isn't jailbroken yet; I'm still waiting for my Teensy++ from PJRC Everything I know (or think I know) is from reading through that PSGroove thread.
