Background: I bought my CodeBreaker 8.1 a week before 9.0 was released, so naturally I was annoyed. Knowing that CB7 and up has wicked encryption, I looked everywhere for a way to bypass it. I ended up figuring out this method:
(REQUIRES CodeBreaker 8)
1. Transfer CB9 elf to mc/usb/hdd/whatever
2. Load LaunchElf or some other tool that can exec elfs
3. Put in original CB8
4. Browse for CB9 elf and exec it
CB9 will recognize the original CB8 and start up.
It may even work with original 7, not sure.
Just a tip for you all
