Great news :PlayStation-3-backups-running –
Dutch blog PS3 Sense reports that hackers have succeeded in loading backup games (view here) in the PlayStation 3, following an almost forgotten feat that was once promulgated by self-proclaimed hackers of Team ICE.
While German hacker and Team ICE member StreetSkaterFU demonstrated via video (view here - requires Apple Quicktime Software) how the feat was accomplished, in a surprising turn of events, PSP homebrew sceners Alek and Mathieulh confirmed that the exploit was actually doable and real.
A full video in Apple Movie format was released demonstrating how StreetSkaterFU was able to get Warhawk to run without the Blu-ray Disc. Despite the quality and size of the video, the developer claims that this demonstration is not fake. Take note, however, that both StreetSkaterFU and Alek say that this is just a proof of concept for the moment.
Moderator FreePlay of the QJ.NET Forums says that the exploit is actual pretty simple. But according to FreePlay, the exploit is only doable if you have a second hard drive handy and have a good sense of timing.
Discussions are currently going on at the forums, but the mechanics of the exploit or its processes have not been revealed. Stay tuned for more updates.
too much pages with a little time cannot read all ..but i think its fake like all others
From what I understand it does in fact work but it's a pain in the ass. You need 2 notebook hard disks and have to do some stuff then swap them just to load the backup. Waste of time.
When they make a HDLoader is gonna blow ppl minds!
How about this one?
It's an advancement in the nuts and bolts of the hacking techniques (specific to people with an Infectus or some other external flashing apparatus), not an exploit. It's good, but it's not a fundamental breakthrough.

because it's a pretty low-level stuff. and one of the first ways to unbrick a ps3 if you've been tinkering with its flash too much.
When we look back at all the exploits we have found for systems in the past, it always starts out a pretty crazy idea, that gets refined into a stable way of doing things. Especially when we look back at projects like the xbox's audio exploit or the tiff exploit for the psp back in the day. It starts out an idea like, "I wonder if I can cause an overflow with an modded audio or image file or even something crazy like a modified savegame, or quickly swapping a pressed cd with a burned cd...". I wouldn't doubt that some of these exploits were found by mistake just fooling around with their consoles.
This could start out massively complicated and big pain in the backside to do, but if a 3rd party hardware manufacturer somehow made a kit for doing it (case mod with switches for doing the hard drive swap or even advanced pcb for automatically doing the swap when it detects the proper timing for the swap to take place) it could turn into a very legit way of doing things.
But we will see what becomes of it.
