There has been written that with NPDRM fixed, homebrew will work but backup managers like multiman won't. Now I'm confused because as far as I know discless games are played through backup managers & if they won't work then how can we play from hdd? Please explain me.
Simple put. Breaking NPDRM will allow homemade programs to run, here in is also included backup managers... HOWEVER, breaking NPDRM to get our programs to run, does not mean that our programs are allowed to do anything they want just because they can run. They can only access and do the same as other PSN games - nothing else, and normal PSN games/apps can for instance not use system calls to modify the RAM. We will need to patch the lv1 to be able to use backup managers. The reason for the need to patch lv1 is that patching the lv1 gives us access to some normally restricted system calls, for instance those that allows us to peek(/fetch/read) and poke(/store/save)) in the ram
See lv1 (the hypervisor) as the operating system on a computer.. What KaKaRoToks is doing, is allowing us to run our programs on the computer, and he has already figured how to install them. What to do next, is get administrator rights on the computer, to make our programs capable of accessing whatever they want :]
Ethos to boost the above: I got an A in Unix operating systems
