I'm trying to use one of the feature of the debug firmware, the BD emulation tool, to overcome my broken bluray player.
If you're on Rebug you should install the Rebug Selector and switch to menu 2.
After that you should go to Settings > Debug Settings > Blu-ray Disk Access and set it to BD emulator (USB)
After that you should have "PS3.BluRay.Disk.Generator.and.System.File.Edi tor-FF" and, precisely, the Disc Image Creator for playstation (R) 3.
This tool let you build an image and write it to an external usb hdd which could be used with the blu-ray disk access.
The problem I've found so far, is that I can't select any external usb hdd from the program (but I've been able to generate a .emu file from it)
Does anybody know how to burn the image to an usb hdd?
I hope that after having loaded a nearly empty image we could fake the blu-ray check and launch the titles which need a disc inserted to be run.
