OK the answer is yes & no one made it to work... let's hope EussNL continue his progress into the RE story.
Well two fold really - if this worked, you'd think it would have been tried and released weeks ago (when the payload was dumped). Furthermore, it's safe to assume that TB's payload has quite a few security features to ensure a legitimate dongle is connected (let alone any possible crypto features)!
1. Though the 2.3 payload upon execution does relocate itself to 0x80000000007f0000 then continue execution, the USB descriptor is still present, at minimum those 0x20 bytes would need to be removed, or accounted for during the initial execute. multiMan has no facility for this.
2. The initial EBOOT.BIN.elf does contain the 2MB flash contents for the dongle, BUT that would need to be carefully extracted (and has been, it too is available on the ps3devwiki), again multiMan has no facility for this.
3. The creating of the folder and copying the files into it was just to make this fake seem more real with additional steps. multiMan has no code to ever look inside that directory.
4. The fact of the matter is that the source code for multiMan was available, and there is NO provisioning in multiMan for "additional" payloads of any kind, the values possible in the .ini file are hard-coded. It is well documented what payloads work with multiMan, and multiMan will only work with those payloads.
[kamel-] older versions of mm did aparently let you use a custom payload
[an0nym0us] kamel-: that just makes it funnier.
[an0nym0us] it appears 01.13.01 thru 01.13.04 had that support, which did not last very long
it annoys me that idiots troll with this bs.. i feel for you that get your hopes up when these idiots do it.. just play your old games until you can save for a psn console and a few awesome online games. i feel its the best way, as its been said time and time again, and you don't have to rely on anyone else then.. it sucks if you cant play the new games on and offline as they really are the best ever.. please santa give everyone 3.7+ cfw for xmas.. LOL
