111w ago - Following up on the initial PS3 JailBreak 2 news comes various PS3 CFW JailBreak 2 and JB2 Updater details today including the examination of an EBOOT.BIN from the Driver: San Francisco Blu-ray Disc in comparison to one from an official PS3 Game (BLES00891) Disc with developments on reverse-engineering the PS3 JB2 file dumps and more below.
To begin, whyudie states the following on the PS3 CFW JailBreak 2 and JB2 Updater for PlayStation 3: I just wanted to share this CFW. This CFW is intended more specifically for Jailbreak 2 dongle only. Most likely will not run well without that dongle. Perhaps some developers out there could investigate this CFW, and develop it even better.
If anyone out there want to install this CFW on your PS3. Do it at your own risk!!
JailBreak 2 Dongle Features
Can play backup games that require firmware 3.60 + (Direct boot just like the original games)
Only burned BD Disc format with some patches will work. For now, there's no info how to make a backup iso to work with this CFW.
Can play backup games from the HDD. PS3 games with FW 3.55 or lower (via internal or external hdd)
Reportedly it allows users to play v3.6+ PlayStation 3 Firmware titles including FIFA 12 on burned Blu-ray discs, however, it only allows running older PS3 games from the hard drive.
To quote: I live in indonesia, and here in my country, there is a hot rumor about new dongle called JB2 and can play 3.60+ game burned to Blank BD.. It also still can play from HDD...
It require us still on 3.55 (not cfw), use the dongle (without power eject), and it will boot the ps3, then you can insert the copied / pirated bd disc. It already being sold and my friend also the sellers already confirmed it can play FIFA 12 and PES 12 and more game coming soon
