i think eboot.bin is specific per game so that wont work, but then again i guess its possible that it could be generic too. worth a try.

Can someone run the following test please. Using backup manager backup 2 games to external HDD.

Connect hdd to pc.
Delete eboot.bin from game B
Copy eboot.bin from game A to game B folder.
Connect hdd to ps3 and try to run game B that now is using game A eboot.bin

If this works then it should work from ISO downloaded from the Internet I guess.

Anyone test and report back thanks!

That's a good question. It really wasn't worth anything!

Stupid typo error. I mean is NOT working.

The procedure will be in this order :

Step 1. Take an "old" game ISO file.
Step 2. Extract the ISO with any compatible program in your PC.
Step 3. Delete the included Eboot.bin
Step 4. Take the PSJB dumped Eboot.bin from the same game.
Step 5. Transfer the game to your External HDD.
Step 6. Plug the External HDD to your PS3 and Play !!
Step 7. (Optional) Recreate the ISO with the "new" Eboot.bin and keep it somewhere for archive purposes.

So the conclusion is that you don't need ISO2JB at all !!!

Working? I don't see any post that confirms this as "working". I know there's chat about injecting the EBoot.bin decrytped files but I see no confirmation this has worked or is working. If there is then please show me differently. It does make sense but I see no proof unless I missed something.

But we said that the ISO2JB "method" is now working. Eboot.bin files are encrypted, and only the PSJB dumping method can decrypted them.

Thats why i said to gregl for his phrase "after using this iso2jb program" that he dont need it at all.

OK now ?

That may be true but this is about getting actual downloaded ISO game files to work. Nothing to do with actual PSJailbreak game dumps. We already know actual rips from PSJailbreak games work from Backup Manager.

I think most true computer/gamers know that in ISO format you wouldn't need to use the ISO2JB program to extract the game files. The only ones that probably wouldn't know how to do this is the newbie computer people. Thanks!
