    With the recent release of Geohot's 3.55 custom firmware, it was only a matter of time, before backups would be up and running. News is coming in that a user named Riku.kh3 has accomplished just that. He has managed to run Castlevania: Lords of Shadow from his internal hard drive, while on Geohot's 3.55 Custom Firmware. He achieved this by patching the game's main executable file (EBOOT.BIN) and making the PS3 think it's a PSN game.

    Looks like ps3 games can now be signed as psn titles and run off the internal hard drive on geohots firmware

    This is so awesome... Now I just hope something like WBFSManager comes along for PS3 games.

    But is this safe? Won't you get banned by Sony or something?

    Or they could just add games like you do on the PSP. No software junk to worry about.

    when/if this gets working on external hard drives this will be the best and no loaders will be needed

    Well, I have a shitload of PS3 ISOs sitting on my hard drive, and I don't have FTP means into a router. So having something that would trim the ISO down and then add it to the PS3 would be cool, like YACC or something. Or even just be able to load the EBOOT.BIN from the XMB like you do in PSP

    Why the need for GeoHots MFW if we have the keys?

    Unlike the PSP, with the PS3 you need to install content to run it from the harddrive. The problem is the "install" option is a debug option and is not active in normal firmwares.

    Yeah but what's wrong with KaKaRoToKS? It's safer right now too.

    Sony must be pissed. This didn't take long at all (though I didn't expect it to). And before they even started really making a ton of their money back off the PS3. Ah well.

    Pfft. He knew it was going to happen, he just didn't want to get sued.

    Bit of a noob question:

    Are we ever going to see back up loaders or anything that can be run without CFW? I only ask this, as I don't want to/can't install CFW on my PS3 due to the fact that it's a shared console, and the other person is wary of stuff such as this (I don't personally care, but he does).

    I would LOVE to be able to take advantage of great stuff such as this, but if it is all completely run through CFW, I won't be able too. I sort of thought the great thing about the keys being released was the fact that it would be able to be officially recognized by the PS3 without modification in anyway.

    Correct me if I missed something or misinterpreted information I read.

    @ Nathan Drake. Yes you can do this without a MFW, it's called a jailbreak dongle. People have just got started, give them a chance.

    That by no means means I understand why this needs GeoHots MFW.
