Props to jd200 for the news, and from the author: Hello guys, I'm working on a tool called PS3 ISO2JB.
This tool will allow your backed up PS3 .iso images to be extracted properly and automatically, then played via Backup Manager.
More news coming once tool is finished. Our forum for it check http://teknogods.com
1. Run tool
2. Open your backup .iso
3. Make folder called GAMEZ in your external USB HDD
4. Extract ISO in GAMEZ (do not make any subfolders!)
5. Run Backup Manager on PS3 with USB HDD plugged in
Required: Jailbreaked PS3 with backups enabled, External USB HDD.
This release is beta quality. If something breaks, review any
pertinent comments on teknogods.com, then email me as a last resort.
Include all log files and a detailed description of problem and
how to reproduce it.

so is this correct.. when you use the backup manager on a jailbroken ps3 to dump a game to your usb HDD its decrypts the eboot.bin..??
but on all the PS3 ISO rips on the interwebz the eboot.bin is encrypted..?? so all we need to do is just replace the encrypted eboot.bin inside the iso with the decrypted one and the ISO can be extracted to your usb HDD to work with the backup manager..
or am I mixin things up here..??
Every report I've seen suggests the tool itself runs and does what it says it'll do (creates the file structure, etc) but when you go to actually play the game it will not run because the eboot is still encrypted... so it's a step in the right direction but not a solution at this point.
