Play PS1 backups on Jailbroken PS3?
Play PS1 backups on Jailbroken PS3? –
Can I make use of the PS3's built-in PS1 emulator and play backups?
Not at the moment. The PC PS1 emulator called PCSX has been ported to PS3 though, as PS3SX:
It's not perfect yet. I've only tried Crash Bandicoot with it and it ran too fast lol, not the usual complaint one has for emulators. The source code was released recently, and the dev released a list of planned improvements.

No, that's not for backups - it's an older app that fixed the JB method for allowing PS1 and PS2 *originals* to work whilst in JB mode. Back in the days of the dongle/payload stuff, running JB stopped PS2 games from working (you didn't even get the option; no PS2 DVD icon, no PS2 Virtual MC) and that fix was put out to remedy it.
This doesn't matter any longer as CFW/MFW has allowed PS1/PS2 originals to play even in JB mode.
