    Post Guide: PS3 Backup Tool Reloaded - NO 99% ERRORS!

    Sponsored Links
    OK, do you remember the OLD PS3 Backup Tool? I've updated it, and now you can successfully write mixed backups on your PS3.

    The new method mixes not all parts like before, but only half. Doing so, the PS3 recognizes the backup and restore, not only the "Integral" part, but even the part (50%) you added.

    So the new formula is:

    archive.dat + archive_XX.dat = INJECTOR
    archive2.dat + archive2_XX.dat = DATA TO WRITE

    You need the INJECTOR to begin the Write process. If you don't add Archive2.dat to your backup the PS3 writes the INJECTOR only. You need to create yourself the INJECTOR, in fact, it's unique for backups. If you have an old INJECTOR you can use it.

    Here's a video demonstrating the process, with a guide below:





    == HOW TO ==

    1) Switch on your PS3
    2) Go to Settings -> System Settings -> Backup
    3) Connect a USB Drive or a Memory Stick to PS3
    4) Select it in Backup utility
    5) Make a Backup
    6) Copy it to your Desktop
    7) Delete backup from the USB Device or Memory Stick
    8) Connect it to the PS3
    9) Delete something in your PS3 (To make backup smaller)
    10) Backup again and copy the 2nd backup to your desktop
    11) Delete backup from the USB Device or Memory Stick

    Now you have 2 different backups on your desktop.

    1) Copy archive2.dat and archive2_00.dat from the bigger backup to the smaller one (see picture below).

    2) Copy the Mixed (Bigger + Smaller) backup to a USB Drive or Memory Stick in:

    X:/PS3/EXPORT/BACKUP/XXXXXXXXXXXX/

    (XXXXXXXXXXXX is the number of your backup)

    3) Restore the Mixed backup from your PS3 (Go to Settings -> System Settings -> Backup -> Restore)

    4) Once restore is complete, your PS3 has the files from the two Backup in HDD.

    That means the PS3 writes files in the HDD, even if the backup is mixed with another. That can be useful in further hacking when you need to write a file in a directory, for example the Game directory.

    Congrats on finally getting this sorted out Giulio19992 and +Rep!

    I just checked, and your original attempt was 170 days ago... so it's GREAT you don't give up easily, no matter how long it takes.

    He said it here, to quote:

    So in summary, no it won't let you run PS3 back-ups on the PS3 right now... however, it is a way to write files to specific locations on the PS3 HDD which is just another step in the right direction.

    Oh Cool! Can anyone confirm/try it with this new version? I've missed my chance to download GT prologue/HD demo, and I've tried using the proxy thing, but it won't work....

    If this method can install pkg files, that'll be awesome!

    We already have a workaround for this, and it's much simple, but tnx for your investigation
