- Below is an update from our Team AC1D ongoing thread
on how current PS3 games work on lower Custom Firmware.
Finally, after a long period of a scene that got riddled by money hungry dongle suppliers we uncover this big scam and show you how things actually work.
First of all, none of the code the dongles use comes from the creators. All files used come directly from higher PS3 firmwares. This works by using plugins / SPRX's who are basically just drivers, from a higher PS3 firmware.
To get games to work, you need to use the files from higher firmwares, that games require. Those plugins we are talking about, also have the decrypt information stored in them that the games use to work.
Some of the newer SPRX's are compatible with older firmwares and can be used on older firmwares quiet easily. All you need to do is place them in the right folder and that's it.
Of course this procedure doesn't work with all the games quite so easy, some of the 3.6+ games load right away, others need some fixing. This fixing is done by patching the SPRX's to work with the lower firmware. Porting the drivers, so they can work with lower firmwares should be the easiest...
