Ok let me try to clear this up with the best of my knowledge at the current time. I don't think there's anything here for the average user. Nothing has been released that allows you to do anything significant at this point in time. Infact its so insignificant that people are wondering whether its real or not. I will hold off on any personal judgement of the situation however things honestly don't look very good.
We'll just have to see if giulio will return tmr and try to clear things up.

Now I know everyone has probably heard about this 'PS3 Backup Exploit BETA' which i can understand how it may be misleading with the word backup in there but please know that backup in this case refers to the function of the ps3 backing up your files like your saved games etc.

The beta released is supposed to demonstrate, inserting a pkg (sort of a ps3 program, or more correctly the package containing the program) from the debug console into the backup of a retail console and then restoring the backup on the retail console including the said pkg from the debug console.

I know it may sound confusing, but read it slowly, i'm sure you'll catch it. Now this is useless to everyone except devs who have to decide whether its totally useless or can be further developed.

Also the proof of concept (i.e. the beta) isn't even proven, because we can't seem to get it to work properly at this time.

I thought this package included in the re-pack has also been modified in a certain way to make it work ie. not just any package will work.... at least not without modification...

I'll explain what I have read here in the forums...

You backup your complete system to an External HDD and when you have the backup you connect it to your computer and ADD .pkg files(that you get from other systems like GAMES from the psn) to the backup you just made. After you have modified the backup you restore your system from this backup and you will get your system plus the .pkg file you just added(that could be a game or any other .pkg).

The tricky part here is that even though you are injecting .pkg files to the system, is to see if we can find a way to add a .pkg from a debug system or something that could break the ps3 hypervision. Thats to my understanding.

The .rar contains a trojan, but there is a repackaged one available in the same thread.
