It may work depends on if it has an elf file in the game and when its triggered. If not if you have a ps1 game use can use the independance exploit then install free mc boot that way but a ps1 game is a must for the trigger disc. Sksapps has guides how to do this or ill install it to your card free of charge. There are means to use a pc to install the exploit but you must have the official ps3 usb memory card adapter. This is how I do all my installs.
