    From ps3hax.com
    Elotrolado have done some in
    depth tests on the PS Jailbreak
    device, here are the results:
    Main points:
    * Backup Manager CAN be
    uninstalled (his previous
    comments on this were
    misinterpreted).
    * Backups created on one
    console run on any other
    console with Backup
    Manager
    * Backup to Internal HDD
    is far quicker than
    backup to external HDD
    * Game updates already
    installed must be
    uninstalled or the backup
    fails to load
    Test Results:
    God of War III:
    File Size: 40.10GB
    Internal Backup Time: 90
    mins
    External Backup Time:
    280 mins
    Red Dead Redemption:
    File Size: 4.83GB
    Internal Backup Time: 15
    mins
    External Backup Time: 40
    mins*
    * Fails (file over 4 GB)
    Condemned 2:
    File Size: 6.43GB
    Internal Backup Time: 15
    mins
    External Backup Time: 40
    mins
    Resistance: Fall of Man:
    File Size: 15.40GB
    Internal Backup Time: 35
    mins
    External Backup Time:
    100 mins*
    * Fails (file over 4 GB)
    FIFA World Cup South
    Africa 2010:
    File Size: 7.36GB
    Internal Backup Time: 15
    mins
    External Backup Time: 40
    mins

    the only thing I find concerning is
    "Game updates already
    installed must be
    uninstalled or the backup
    fails to load"
    I didn't even know you could uninstal the updates

    uninstalling game updates is annoying.and i am a bit surprised to see rdr having a file over 4gb when the whole game is only 4.83gb(only).

    Interesting test. What this test just to examine how fast it is to backup games?

    I have a bad felling about the update stuff. Updates are installed to the HDD, and read form there when loading the games, right? It sounds like PSJB doesn't support to load anything from HDD yet while loading the games. If that's true, the compatiblity is less than 50%, because it would mean that all games that require a HDD install won't work + all games that require an update to work properly, won't work properly. Any confirmation on this from somebody with a PSJB would be nice.

    Right i missed the savegames. I don't have a ps3, does it allow to save something else than internal HDD? Until somebody who has a PSJB does a real detailed test, my feeling gets worse and worse.

    Since each time you reach a new chapter, the game has to over write the content it installed before.

    I suppose if they got ext2 or ntfs file support for the external hard disk then any loading from the hard drive(i.e. mgs4, patches) shouldn't be a problem right?

    I don't think it's lack of file system support that's causing this problem, that causes the problem that files over 4GB can't be written. I don't know what's causes this problem.

    Really? My reason is that I've been playing a lot of MGS lately. [​IMG]

    But yeah, I guess that's a better reason.

    If there's a file in the game that's over 4gb you have to dump it to the internal hard drive.

    All this is fine and well... BUT...

    Backup Manager is just a utility from the SDK.

    There is also a "BD-ROM emulator" which may prove useful, and if the source for these tools exist, they will undoubtedly be improved or incorporated into new loaders. The backup manager was never intended to be used as a piracy tool.

    PSBJ allows PS3 owners to run unsigned code. That means HOMEBREW, with FULL ACCESS to the PS3's system. Media players, emulators, browsers... it will be wide open if the SDK makes an appearance in "the usual places" and the jig finally makes it to market.
