    Exclamation PS3 Back Up Theory?

    A Lot of talk about the backups being able to be played on developmental ps3 all i want to know is why can’t you take the system info from the developmental and put it on the retail via Linux

    P.S. just a theory from a nooblet but just might be dumb enough to work please comment.

    Well, simple answer no. You are not even telling how, just saying "by linux" does not help.

    Furthermore, the only way that might be conceivable is replacing the firmware on the unit, and since the firmware only works on the box it came from - it makes it quite hard!

    when you say developmental, do you mean the demo consoles in gamestops and such?

    i work at a gamestop, and as far as i'm aware the capability of the demonstration firmware is little to none, not to mention it just got updated to demo firmware 2.0 (demo firmware releases are totally separate from the public firmware releases, usually all they do is download and install game demos and trailers and such.)

    To answer: PS3 Demo units (what stores get) and PS3 TEST/Debug (what PS3 Developers get) units are different.

    Newbie or not though... Are you typing with your penis?

    Please take your time when posting here to spellcheck or write slower so that it makes sense. You posted:

    And it should have been:

    I'm sorry i meant to say more.. To start with linux on the ps3, download a disc editor that supports blu ray of course. then put in a retail game and then look at the sectors.. i have more to say i need to re think it, please remember i'm a nooblet.

    It's important to use some punctuation and grammar skills on our boards... we lets things slide here in the Newbie section, but keep this in mind when you make the 'big move' to the other areas and you'll be OK.
