For those who haven't been following the PlayStation 3 scene lately, now you can run PS3 game backups on official Firmware (OFW) 4.70 consoles without any ODE and IDPS using the game injection method detailed below.

This is a bit reminiscent of the PS4 PSN Trick to Unlimited Share Games and PS4 Russian Jailbreak Method using a Raspberry Pi.

To quote from tukil, roughly translated: Starting backup on PS3 OFW 4.70 Tutorial

Now you can run backup games on the PS3 OFW 4.70 consoles without any ODE and IDPS.

What you will need:
1. Open archive GAME_CONVERT.zip any archive and extract packed inside GAME_CONVERT folder at any convenient place, preferably close to the root of the drive (NOT the folder path should be long and contain Cyrillic characters and other signs such as @ & () "/ [\ ]:;! | =,)

2. If you have downloaded the game in an ISO you need to unpack it or mount a virtual drive. Of all the files we need only PS3_GAME folder, copy it to GAME_CONVERT. This also unpack the archive GAME_CONVERT.zip, containing script-BAT and utility make_npdata. As a result, you should get this:

3. We go in and check out there PS3_GAME presence LICDIR folder. If not, then read a spoiler:

Creating PS3_GAME \ LICDIR \ LIC.DAT

4. Run CONVERT.BAT, continue to enter the name of our future in the game folder NPEBXXXXX format (where XXXXX any five-digit number), click the interval, waiting ... After the completion of the script, next to the other files will be almost finished with the game folder.

5. It's time to unpack the patch (s). If the patch is not one, then you need to unpack them all and merge into a single folder, from smallest to largest, while agreeing with the replacement.

6. Copy EBOOT.BIN file from the patch to the folder USRDIR our converted games. Editing, if needed, PARAM.SFO. (Change the version of the game, and the firmware on the exact same as in PARAM.SFO patch)

7. Finished the game folder and the folder with the patch throws in "TrueAncestor BACKUP Injector \ game" and create a backup for instructions. Something like this should look ready patch folder and games.

Thanks for sharing the news here too @akela1979 I'll mainpage it for PS3 users now (y)

Also @B7U3 C50SS I did the best I could with it... for the GAME_CONVERT.zip I linked to their download attachment as I don't have an account there to mirror that file.

Freaking AWESOME to both you and @SorenAlke! :D

I will mirror them in the first post, as I try not to use attachments here much because it makes database backups take forever :p

Well, the original post was from October 16th and OFW 4.81 came out on the 31st... so I guess someone would need to try it and see if Sony blocked this recently. o_O
