Then I booted the computer and waited for the right time to power it off, and then the memory chip I had wired had a static 'snapshot' of the memory just before it was turned off. Now it was just a simple matter of dumping the RAM to a computer and save as a file.
Ok, that was 15 years ago on a simple 8 bit system, and I have no idea if this is even possible on ps3 memory chips. I haven't worked with hardware since but I just wanted to share this idea.
i know it sounds stupid but i had the same idea but didnīt post it... and i think that i read somewhere that the ps3 copy the keys to the ram but delete it quickly and with this method we can power off the ps and the ram holds the data
