Copies your system backup, copies and renames the .pkg file, and then copies the files in the correct order to get the Corrupt icon on your ps3..
Edit: Looks like GIO25 beat me to the reply by 1 minute

does any1 of the more experienced ps3 devs think that this will ever lead anytime to a first hello world on ps3?
this whole "project" seems very weird to me and looks like it won't lead to anything useable...

It seems many are misguided that there is one project only to hack the PS3, this simply isn't the case as now others are getting involved.. which is really good news indeed.
Most of the PS3 Devs are busy with their own projects and have little time to get involved in others projects, while balancing life, jobs, education, family, etc in the mix.
In summary, when the lead PS3 Devs here have news/breakthroughs they will post on it as they always have... but during the time between their progress updates is when other projects are great for those who enjoy tinkering with the PS3.

Some Clarification for the uninformed...
Right, so i haven't actually tried this myself yet (would have to swap out my 320gb for my 60gb, format etc!, haven't had time) but i have been reading recent news/forum posts etc...
1. This tool simply takes a backup of your PS3 and manipulates it so that when restored back to your PS3 again you will have a corrupted icon showing up. (nothing more, nothing less)
2. This isn't of much use to the general public (yet).
3. No, it isn't a dam iso loader!
4. NO, IT ISN'T A DAM ISO LOADER!
This project is here to see if the concept is viable, or if any problems are encountered. As stated elsewhere it is for investigative purposes for future projects.
If you want an iso loader - don't bother with this as it is of no use to you at all! (although your testing may help lead to full access to the ps3, which may in turn unfortunately lead to piracy on the ps3)
(wow, haven't posted like this for ages!)
p.s. Wanna know what something is for - why not read previous posts on the subject, you never know they might contain useful information!!!!!
