Well, what if we had a disc/USB with what the PlayStation thinks is just an add-on by the beautiful Bathesda studios???
Surely new scripts/meshes/textures would then be automatically copied into legit folders within the PS3 with no need to jailbreak...
I have the gamebryo lightspeed game engine (skyrims game engine) so, the question is, what would it take to tell Mr PS3 it has a new skyrim expansion to import?
I realy hope this made sence... And that it's in the right area, to be honest it could have gone in a lot of places, but here sempt most appropriate.
Thanks for reading.
i'm no expert but think about it:
1, How are you going to sign the modified update/pkg to be installable without legit keys?
2, How could you redirect the update server to look for your hacked content without modding the original game?
(maybe through game save hacking, but I doubt the save data contains the update paths.)
3, You cannot instal a PKG without the "install package" option... again only on jailbroken/debug machines.
4, You cannot modify the installed update patches/legit DLC on a legit unjailbroken PS3 even after they are installed legitly, let alone before they are installed.
5, PS3 will not accept a modified (unsigned) disc, and we do not have the keys. If we did we wouldnt need to jailbreak to burn our own backups...
