PSP isos can now run on PS3s without a Custom Firmware
Back in December, When KaKaRoTo released his tool ps3xport as a farewell gift to the PS3 scene, he majorly underestimated how much enthusiasm it would lead to. He also downplayed the potential importance of the hack, for example for psp isos.
PSP isos – good or not?
It’s always tough to talk about events that are so closely related to “backups” on this blog. People expect this blog to stay on top of the scene news, and at the same time we are reluctant to speak of iso loading. I’m taking the plunge here because this is interesting from a technical point of view, and because there are legit uses to loading psp isos.
As a matter of fact, the tutorials below come from noone else than SkyBladeCloud, and you might remember his name because he’s the guy behind the popular unofficial English translation of Final Fantasy Type-0 on the PSP. Being able to run fan-translated games is one of the huge benefits of psp isos.
PSP isos on your PS3 – How to
So, ps3xport has been dug into by several devs on the PS3 scene, and it is today possible to run psp isos on your OFW PS3. Now, the process is fairly long as it involves backing-up the entire content of your PS3, then restoring it. Not the type of manipulation you’d like to do everyday, but still a very cool and interesting process for those of you who like to tinker with their devices.
The tools required for the process include PSP2PS3, idpstealer, PeXploit, and ps3export. Although you can download most of these from our downloads section, SkyBladeCloud included download links in his videos as well.
Enjoy the tutorials below:

Update: This does not directly work for 4.70 owners because idpstealer has been patched, but a solution is in the works for that!
