I don't know, I fail at understanding why we can't emulate a disk and play diskless (I have a broken bd player..)
Before knowing anything about jailbreaking I thought we would be able to play without disk..
I'm currently looking for info about how the "loading the boot files from disk" stuff works but I didn't find anything useful
I believe the missing code is in the backup manager though (not in the payload)
Basicly I believe the playstation to mount the bd disk in a similar way to unix (/dev/bd or something similar) and then read the files needed to boot
AFAIK the backup manager fake the data position using something similar to a symlink (like ls -s /dev/bd /position/of/the/game/on/the/hdd)
Is it right?
I don't understand why the boot files HAVE to be necessarily on the bd: the boot files are compatible between different games (and that's why you can use a random bd to boot every game on you hdd); why the hell can't the boot files stay on hdd?
I really don't know where this protection is - maybe the bd player encrypt the data sent to playstation? If yes, why do certain games work diskless?
If anyone can help me understand this better I'll be very thankful
