Software dongle emulation?
Software dongle emulation? –
I'm no hacker, but after reading all of this stuff about PSGroove and everything I was wondering if it could be possible in a near future to use this exploit without any other hardware than a PC or laptop.
I was thinking maybe I could just plug a male-male USB cable between my laptop and PS3 and run some software on my laptop than basically emulates the PSjailbreak dongle.
Like I said, I'm no hacker, but it sounds quite possible to me, what you guys think? Can anyone with more knowledge about this stuff comment on this?
I'm just curious... If it can be done, maybe someday we could all simply download some software and plug our computers right into the PS3 to enjoy some homebrew and maybe even some backup manager for those with less ethic
Because you need a device that can BECOME a device.
A PC or a LAPTOP is just that an HOST for devices!
I know, but EMULATE was the keyword here! It must be possible. Again, I'm no hacker, but I work as a java developper and I will definitly look into the usb API for for the fun of it. I will probably not be able to figure this out myself because I'm more into web development, but I really dont see why it couldn't be done.
I know for sure that the Sat TV guys are able to emulate some dongles using PC software so it can probably be done the same way.
Anyway, I'm just curious and I find all this stuff pretty cool. Well, I don't even want to play backup games or run homebrew, this stuff is just plain cool
I softmodded my Wii for the same reason. Now that everything works, I barely turn it on once a month!
I just read the news on the front page "OpenPSJailbreak Port Project For PSP", so I guess it's only a matter of time before someone makes a port for PC now!
