And that right there tells me there is something that can be done with software that this turd of hardware is hiding.
Oh yeah? the connection probably has a purpose. like controlling the board to mount a new image most likely. the USB port probably just supplies power to the drive. that ribbon/dongle probably does all the comunication with the device and I can assure you software can not make a physical drive emulator. How the hell could you even kind of think this? yes software can emulate and do everything this device does thats well known. the point is the way it works lets this hack be used on OFW once you are set up. It's not homebvrew it's not special software its a physical piece of hardware that emulates the disc drive. The only downside here is that it will only work on consoles that can be hacked right now.
