To quote: My PSGroove fork is up! Functions are relocatable and it includes the USB stick apploader payload.
This fork comes with multiple payloads, which you can enable by editing port1_config_descriptor.S. All payloads have been rearranged so that they do not use hardcoded addresses anymore; you can rewrite and resize functions without worrying about offsetting others.
### Default Payload
The default payload performs the basic PSGroove exploit; it allows you to install and run unsigned packages.
### Apploader Payload
This payload makes use of the /app_home/PS3_GAME menu item. You may place an application on a USB drive under the PS3_GAME folder to run it without installing a package.
Note that simply extracting a .pkg onto the USB drive is not quite enough for a program to run. EBOOT.BIN must be slightly modified to boot properly.

here's the payloaders for easy viewing in a hex editor. as evilsperm mentions, there is a lot more going on. ive only managed so far to boot the ps3 with no proper payload at all (no install packages/etc), or boot the ps3 and and have it black screen.
lets hope psgroove team doesn't start doing this, although i'm sure they will. backup manager == your a pirate no matter how badly you want to save your ps3's laser
I actually had the files backwards and didn't realize it because of the app I use to compare files. there is more going on in the AerialX one the zeroed out one is the original PSGroove. I am still mowing over it though.
