    I thought they were building tools before they released the exploit. They essentially did the same as the last release (left it for pirates). I was sure they didn’t want that.

      Yes, it’s possible: Install disc version – install patch – dump game/patch – make fake pkg for game/patch. But you can only install dumped patches. You can’t install an official patch over a dumped game.
