According to users on IRC, PS JailBreak PS3 game dumps are now hitting the Internet, however, according to PS3JailBreak.com a Sweedish Web site reports that not all PS3 game backups are working currently.
To quote: "Its been well known that games that feature files over 4gb will not work on external hard drive (due to fat32 limitations). So it's quite possible thats why these games don't work. We'll keep you posted."

That's not the point in my eyes. Personally i want to keep the internal hdd as close to original as possible. so i want to backup my games to an external hdd. and my thoughts are just about the 4gb file-limit. if i have an external hdd with the ps3 filesystem i don't have problems with those files. the folder where the games are saved could be set by the backup manager itself. i don't want to copy files from internel to external or vice versa. all i need is an external hdd with NO CONTENT on it that get's recognized by the ps3 and doesn't have the 4gb file-limit.
Then why not just install them internally? There's no 4gb limit if you do that. Also, backup manager won't be able to find discs you backed up to your internal if you take it out and use it as an external, as it looks in a different directory for external hard drives.
I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before but maybe i've an idea about solving the 4GB issue: Maybe you could install the hard disk you want to use as an external one nto the ps3, let it format the whole drive with the ps3-filesystem and then put it back in an external housing. it's a simple idea, but maybe it'll work. haven't tried it. If nobody has, i'll try it when i get home.
