sure it killed my TV. So I'm trying to get it to just power on at the moment. I'll post later if I can get my TV to work and try this method, I can see it working and being possibly easier if done right...

Remember to rename your GAMEZ folder to VIDEO or the PS3 won't find your games anymore. It should still launch but the games list will be empty.
I haven't tried yet, but I believe hex editing all GAMEZ entries to VIDEO in the eboot.bin file should cause it to backup to the VIDEO directory on the internal hd too. Instead of renaming you would have to delete the GAMEZ folder from the internal (using the ps3ftp server to make any necessary backups first.)
Then I assume you could rip a new game internally with the new ninja backup manager and it should show up in the VIDEO folder on the internal hd. You could then also move any backups you made with the ftp server back to the internal hd in the VIDEO folder. Please note I haven't tried any of this myself as my TV's dead right now. Also, instead of the custom DNS, you might want to just setup you internet connection properly and then just disable it when necessary.
Well I'm gonna go back to working on my TV, I'll check back later.
I haven't tried this yet, I was planning on it today with a different demo. However a storm came through here overnight and I'm pretty
