Do you think they'll release a TuT on how to connect the drive to the pc? Because if they did, that would be pretty sweet! So i'm guessing they connect the power of the blu ray drive to the ps3 and solder some wires to the blu-ray's board and solder the other side of the wires to a sata cable which goes to the PC right? Just guessing...

I hope this time JaicraB & HadesTeam will crack this beast once for all or at least make it loads backups.

I just downloaded it and i'm about to answer your question:

A 594KB file about CDS file system areas

We've seen the last 2 before, but not the first one. I don't have a good hex editor, but I did import it into a text editor and it appears to be a lot of metadata.
