176w ago - Today MysticHades has posted a video on YouTube of a MotorStorm PS3 hack that has once again surfaced (it originally hit Elotrolado.net and PS3News.com this past November), demonstrating an exploit used to run PS3 backups.
Below is a roughly translated version of the French tutorial with a better English translation by stef1578HERE:
Currently, due to time constraints, I will not detail each step, I just put the key actions you need to do.
REMINDER: ONLY VIRGIN BLU-RAYS FUNCTIONS, DVDS DO NOT WORK
NOTE: GAMES PS1/PS2 INCOMPATIBLE WITH THE EXPLOIT
Step 1: Install Ubuntu on your PS3 (or kubuntu)
Step 2: Install Windows XP on Ubuntu
Step 3: Install CloneCD on Windows XP and connect to network another PC so has seen in My Network Places. I do not know if AnyDVD HD is necessary, but I installed it for me
Step 4: Open CloneCD, select new image, insert the game, select "Protected PC Game", change the extension to ISO.
Step 5: Ripper Blu-Ray on PC via network favorites.
Step 6: Burn with ImgBurn (or CloneCD) in 1X on the PC or has been ripped game
Here is the original Spanish post, roughly translated:
DEMONH seen... was waiting for the right moment to break the news but good to say it and so we can finish with such nonsense condensed crellendo people who are still superior.
PS3 backups load thanks to an exploit discovered when it is considered necessary is to upload a video showing the event. My way of working will protect this exploit and not give details of how this occurs so that might not make the same mistakes of the past.
You have to patch both updates as other functions, the iso is not worth anyone... It requires a different process than those generated in linux are not worth keeping the encryption layer.
The exploit creates a CheckStop that generates a reboot and does not load everything back into memory but the function of pre patched disk and run the new copy.
The models are tested 40/60/80. The games tested are 3, Killzone 2, Burnout Paradise and PES 2008.
And this is all for now I will not talk any more about it and I hope this thread remains to discuss the jtag, because if I opened this investigation was to help people who have my same problem... broken plate reader pior testing.

what bothers me the most is that even it WAS real, he's taking too much effort to prove it's real. I mean it's already his 6th video (or what?). If I was being the one that discovered an exploit or hack or something for the PS3 and I knew it worked I would:
1. Never come up with the news at the beginning of a new year (nor the 1st of April, like the boss said).
2. Only post the news once. Whether it's a video or not. If people don't believe you. It's their problem. I wouldn't waste more time to prove that it's indeed real.
3. Write and include a clear tutorial and mention the cause of all of this.
4. And certainly not post it on public spaces like friggin' youtube, where Sony has it's patrols as well.
