Use the actual spm syscalls to trick the spu into calculating the proper response for the dongle id of their choosing.
Without those steps that all require geohot's hack, they could never have gotten their dongle to successfully identify as a jig and they could never have triggered their hack.
The psjailbreak basically exploits the update manager which is the code that does the dongle auth located inside the spm itself inside lv1.
We don't have the payload it sends though because we don't have a dongle to sniff...
