Theoretically we could use a Flash drive to do it. All they'd need to do is change the pointers in Backup Manager from dev_hdd0 to something like dev_usbflash0 (or something to that effect). Question is, why would you want to? Unless you either A) have a REALLY big flash drive, or B) intend to use the flash drive for Homebrew apps, theres not much point.
well.. i can get at least 10 16'G flash drives a day from my work, so there's another option
and for my Q: Does anybody working to apply the OS iphone to jailbreak the PS, or i'm waiting for nothing? thx
Can i use my PC (usb port, conroller) instead of JailBreak or SmartPhones to "jailbreak" my PS3.
No. If it was possible it would be useless to attempt to sell PSJailbreak or even port it to anything. Everyone could just hook up their laptop and be done with it. But it doesn't work like that. If it was possible you would know it also. It would be EVERYWHERE. There would be a bazillion tutorials on how... but there aren't any because it doesn't work.
Now my question I haven't been able to find an answer to...
Will this be able to be used to install other firmware? I have a demonstration PS3 and would like to get the demo firmware off if possible... I figure if this can allow custom firmware it should be able to put on normal firmware other than what is already on the ps3.
I plan on trying to jailbreak the demo model to see if it is even doable, but I don't want to mess with my retail ps3. the demo model however can't connect to PSN anyway.
The demo firmware can not be overwritten with ANY standard methods... formatting it. Going into the debug menu and resetting it back to factory. Redoing the file system.
It is obvious some of those won't work because it doesn't touch the kernel or whatever is holding the firmware, but if the jailbreak can allow access, then I want to try and change the firmware.
