Over the weekend the PS3 got a little something for OFW (original) 4.70. It’s now able to play backups (pirated games) without needing to downgrade or use a ODE thanks to Russian site pspx.ru and user tukil for this post. The really good news is it works on the newer PS3 slims which can’t be downgraded to use a CFW and the only option for those PS3 are ODE (optical drive emulator).
What you will need:
- The Disc version of the Game and the Patches for it!
- Converter: GAME_CONVERT.zip
- Injector: TrueAncestor – The BACKUP Injector
- Hex Editor: HxD – The Hex Editor is Freeware
- make_npdata: (Complied version inside GAME_CONVERT)
- PkgView: (Latest version 1.3 is needed)

Here are the instructions that were translated by Google on how to do this.
