For the PS3 FAT: Turn off the power switch found at the backside of the console.
Step 2: Plug your USB jailbreak and Power ON the console and immediately press the “Eject” button. Console should show two LEDs turned-on.
Now, the USB LED should turn green, this indicates that you are good to go as the PS Jailbreak has been successfully loaded.
If it turns red: This usually happens when the Power and Eject button sequence wasn’t performed properly. Start over.
Step 3: Hold on while it boots, when done, plug-in the external USB storage device (pendrive or HDD) which has the “Backup Manager” setup to the console’s USB port.
Step 4: Open the “Game Menu” and select the option “Install Package Files” and then select “manager.pkg”.
This will install the “Backup Manager” application that does all future tasks.
When done, scroll down to “Game Menu” and run “Backup Manager”
Step 5: Fearlessly, insert the game BluRay dvd in the drive which you want to backup. Press “O” on joystick and you will be prompted on where to keep the backup — Options being internal HDD or the external USB drive.
Running Games from Backup
Insert any game Dvd (to fake loading process) and run “Backup Manager” in the “Game Menu”. Press “X” to play the selected backup game.
Inside the “Game Menu” you will see a list of games you have backed up. Select the game, and run it without having the disc in the console’s drive.
IMPORTANT: At all times, keep the PS Jailbreak USB Modchip connected to your console as long as you are playing backedup games.
Enjoy the freedom.
