From what I thought as well the backup manager decrypts the eboot.bin
so have you tested your backup game after ripping it through ftp?
I plan to use this method with bigger games. I ran out of space on my current PS3 HDD so I ordered a 500gb HDD for my PS3. Has anyone notice that some games run slower on an external HDD? I had this problem with Madden 11 so I transferred to the PS3 HDD.
I tested this. For Heavenly sword it only copied across ~300MB or something. This doesn't work...

I compared the folder size of the dump with the BD data, and they were the exact same size, but when I try to launch i get the 8001003e error. it says I must insert GOW3 game disk.
Did you have a game disc in the PS3 drive? There has to be a retail game disc in the drive but it doesn't matter what game. This is just my guess!

I will try some other things and cross my fingers.
yes indeed it does

well dude thats not going to work because when u dump the disc using ftp u r dummpig it encrypted and the game will give u eboot error but the backup manager will backup the game and decrypt it so thats why it will not work but check this i think it will help a lot
Play ps3 backup games from the disc thread check it it in the General Jailbreak Discussion
