I really have no idea what KaTaRoKo has or has not done.
My guess is that he is exploiting the Backup and Restore process of the PS3.
I am waiting for a PS3 to return from repair to test this old exploit that allowed the "installation" of any package on any PS3.
I just didn't want to announce anything without testing it first.
So anyway since no one is talking to me I might as well share it with everyone.
Google: PS3 Backup Tool Reloaded
You will see the original exploit.
I have been working on this for the last few months, so when I read that "K" announce his "jailbreak"
I really thought it was the same thing or some variation of it.
Money is a ***** when you dont have it
and a spare OFW PS3 is really the best way to test and use it.
I spent sometime creating the second half "backup packages" ready for anyone to use.
But again useless for homebrew... so none of the apps would work.
I wouldn't play any duplex games and connect to PSN using this.
That could result in a PS3 Hardware and or PSN account Ban.
The entire processes, not included here, would allow the capture of all PS3 and PSN account data without risking a ban.
That was the whole point imho... not CFW or Backup Managers.
This is the THEORY so far:
In short it uses a mixed backup from one PS3 to another.
By Mixing backup files from an OFW and a CFW PS3 it's possible to install any package on any PS3.
So its really not "installing" anything... and it worked from OFW to OFW way back then...
and of coarse it could always be done using an old backup of CFW PS3 data to OFW on the same PS3 without anything special.
There are 4 files created in the Data Backup processes:
The first 2 are unique to the PS3
The last 2 are generic and can be used on any PS3.
Successful Injection Restore Must INCLUDE
4 specifically created backup files:
1. From the OFW 3.73 PS3 (Target PS3)
archive.dat and archive_00.dat
These are unique to each PS3.
They will be large based on what is already saved on this PS3.
Game saves, themes, PSN account info.
I recommend creating it on a freshly formatted PS3.
The files are very tiny this way.
2. From the CFW PS3 (Source PS3)
archive2.dat and archive2_00.dat
These are generic to every PS3
This should only include the apps and or games you want to inject or "install."
They will be roughly the same size in data as the packages installed on the PS3.
3. Mix the backup files and perform a Data Restore of it on the OFW PS3.
If it works that's your "jailbreak" for 3.73 sort of.
That is one of the ways that I saw but the folding
e/proxy method was the one I thought most likely to still work
