The same filesize does not mean it's the same file. With that said, from the comments i've read so far, it still doesn't work with modern warefare (not sure if any other non-working games are working).

Quick Summary:

1. None of the major updates were released. (NTFS, PS2, PSX, OTHER FIRMWARES)
2. Reported date that this back-up manager was created is Sep 2. ?
3. Lots of users already reported that there is terrible play-back with-out Blu-ray
4. Custom Pay-load is supposed to be released which you will have to pay for.
5. Insert more problems here

Overall I think people on here will understand the contribution made by the PS3 hacking community over the last few months has completely surpassed the PSJB development team.

I tried it and its not that good. I tried 3 games with the NO DISC option and none worked.

So far OpenBM 2.1A is the best as all games I've tried worked.

There are only 2 games I cant get working at all. Brutal Legend and Tomb Raider Underworld.

Looks like they blew their deadline again (20th) cause I'm seriously NOT blown away by that news You would have thought they'd of learned from their last announcement...Don't set yourself deadlines cause your credibility takes a severe beating when you miss them!
