This exploit relies on the fact that RAM is not cleared on reset of the CELL processor.

Simply pull the cell_reset line on the processor for around 60ns and the cell will reset without clearing RAM and begin the boot process again. This hack is largely useless except in special circumstances. From version 3.15 it's completely useless.
