• Warning: Do not update for firmware 3.60+. This hack is now patched on future  firmware versions and no way to go back. There currently is now way to bypass PSN. You can use a PSN alternative known as XLink-Kai.

    With the latest developments on the PS3 scene, it seems that Wutangrza has finally managed to get backups to run on PS3 fw 3.55 with his CFW (custom firmware). Now to lay out a few ground rules before I go on with this tutorial. Please understand that there are 3 different main CFW floating around right now. They are Geohots, Wutangrza, Waninkoko and kmeaw CFW; feel free to read more about each one and learn about them before contuning with this guide. Please note that the Waninkoko has a high rate of PS3 bricking so it is not recommended, where as the Wutangrza CFW or kmeaw CFW (what this guide will cover), almost no reports of bricked PS3′s have been reported. So if something went wrong, you didn’t follow the directions below.

    This guide will teach you how to install kmeaw CFW, how to enable the use of backup managers and play backed up (legal) games/homebrew and connect to PSN. This guide works for almost every other current CFW (minus the files). This guide is for educational purposes only.

    Lets get started….

    Step 0

    • Download the original PS3 firmware 3.55 here or here.

    Update your PS3 to the original PS3 firmware 3.55 (regardless of what CFW your currently are).

    Step 1

    In this step we will create the patched custom firmware. You can either make your OWN patched CFW or download a prepatched one. Due to legal reasons we will not link the prepatched PUP in this tutorial, but you are free to “google” it. Just make sure you know the source of the prepatched PUP and the MD5/SHA1 match up. We will show you how to make your own (windows).

    • Download the required the files for CFW here.
    • Download the original PS3 firmware 3.55 here or here (same as the one your downloaded in Step 0)
    1. Extract the kmeaw_cfw_lv2.pkg.rar folder and copy the original PS3 3.55 CFW (PS3UPDAT.PUP) inside the your folder (see screenshot)
    2. Open command prompt (Start > CMD)
    3. Navigate to your folder (type in cd C:UsersAdminDirectory to kmeaw_cfw_lv2 folder and press Enter)
    4. Once there, type in the following exactly as shown in bold:
    5. bspatch PS3UPDAT.PUP PS3CFW.PUP patchfile

    6. Let it run and do the patching, then you should now see a “PS3CFW.PUP” folder in your folder.
    7. Delete the original PS3UPDAT.pup and rename “PS3CFW.pup” to PS3UPDAT.pup
    8. You have now created your patched CFW and are now ready to update.
    9. Before proceeding please make sure that the MD5 should be the following (or for any you find online):

    Original FW PUP md5 before patching: ca595ad9f3af8f1491d9c9b6921a8c61
    Patched PUP md5 after patching:      2be5e87a22bf1e7f48e98fcabd38977b

    Step 2

    Time to install the custom firmware. This step is pretty much standard for all/any patched CFW file you may be using. Copy the newly created and renamed PS3UPDAT.PUP to your flash drive (/PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP). And now update your PS3 firmware as normal via XMB.

    Note: If you get a error saying that your already at the latest update and it kicks you out, then you need to update your PS3 CFW via RECOVERY mode. TO boot into recover mode read THIS.

    I got that error first time going through so I went ahead via recovery menu to complete the process.

    If you see this on your XMB then the CFW installed properly:

    Step 3

    Now that CFW is installed its time to get the backup managers to work.

    • Download Kmeaw Patch here

    This is a PKG which you install via PKG option in XMB. You have to run this whenever you want to run the backup manager (per restart). This PKG does certain things I will not go into that allows backup managers to run with this particular CFW. It is likely that backupmanagers in the future will build this feature in so do some research on this once this guide gets a bit dated.

    Step 4

    Install a backup manager (must be signed), I recommend and am using Rogero manager v7.8:

    • multiMAN  (DOWNLOAD)
    • 2.1 (DOWNLOAD)
    • Rogero BM Manager v7.8 (DOWNLOAD)
    • Simple AVCHD Manager – (DOWNLOAD)

    Some notes on backup managers - you must have any original PS3 game inside and you must boot from XMB.

    And there you go, you should have backups + PSN now running on your PS3 :)
    Please reply back with any questions/helps and your results!

    UPDATE:

    If your having black screens popup while playing a game via BM then chances are you have an issue with “file permissions” in your internal HDD. To fix this, download THIS pkg file into your Flash Drive or External HDD, and install it, run it once, the screen will go black and then it’ll go back to the XMB, then you should be able to run all your games properly.

      This FW+PKG hasn't worked for me with either Resistance: Fall of Man or Resistance 2. When I try to run Resistance 2 I just get a black screen with a single X on it. If I wait, nothing happens; if I press X my PS3 reboots. Anyone have luck with either of these games?

      Should I update to OFW 3.55 first? I am on 3.41.

      I know there must be a newbie link in this forum but my question truly pertains to this tutorial. If I am still working on a 3.41 console that has never been updated nor connected to psn since the 3.41 patch what would be the best options for myself, If I still wanted function of my BD device and wanted to possibly run homebrew app in the near future?

      Should I update to 3.55 via psn and then follow the process here (albeit I will wait until the proper patches come out) or update by other means and if so what are other directions to take for updating?

      Now the big question. If i was to venture down this path, is this new exploit done via a standard fat32 usb or is this still being done using a usb key board?

      Thanks to everyone and long live the brave enough to experiment.

      Sam out...

      Which BM manager?

      And to everyone else, yes update to OFW 3.55 regardless of which firmware you are at currently. Added that as Step 0

      I just got it to work, nobody ever mentioned that when prompted with the "Not all games work directly from MM, return to XMB?" that you have to go back to the XMB and have a disc in the PS3 and the disc will be changed to the game you're trying to load. I have it working fine now. Working great now on a release date 60gb fatty. You should definitely mention this in the tutorial, I was stuck on this for hours and I know a lot of other people have been stuck on it as well.

      Thank you Pirate, you have given a great tutorial. Now hopefully it will be quiet around the other articles with people constantly asking how to get the updates even though the information is already there lol. Its great you've added this buddy. OK before I go I think you've made an error by saying you recommend Rogero BM Manager v7.8 as a backup manager as its not been signed for this cfw yet, apart from that its great. Take it easy

      This works a lot like the 3.41 jailbreak just no dongle. Rogero is highly recommended. I backed up my copy of New Vegas and it did not run under MultiMAN (kept getting .ini errors.) Ran rogero and it works just fine takes updates and freezes less than the disc. I am a happy man knowing I can keep my disc free of scratches.

      Everything installed properly for me, but I can't get any backups to run. I have tried Little Big Planet and MW2 on MultiMan, Gaia Manager, and Rogero Manager and after selecting the game it seems like it's working (it goes back to the XMB and shows the games as a disk.) But when I select */app_home/PS3_GAME or the disk it boots to a black screen and freezes. I have to turn off my PS3 from the back to unfreeze it. Before you ask, yes, I ran lv2.pkg first. Anybody know what's going wrong?

      Have you ever played those game before? Properly worth trying to remove the saved game data. If it still does not work try putting in an original game disk before loading. Interested to know if this works.

      Quick question guys, this might sound noobish but I am a noob at this. Anyway, I modified my own 3.55 pup with the original one. I followed all the steps and successfully created a CFW PUP. I even checked the hash MD5 thingy too and it matched. Now, I placed the file in my USB which is FAT32 and plugged it in my ps3. I then tried to update through mass storage device yet my PS3 says "no update file blah blah found". I tried it both on regular and recovery mode. Any tips or advise? it would be greatly appreciated.

      Yeah, I ripped them myself. I tried making a new user and trying the games again and I still get a black screen. Could the file paths on my usb be the problem? I haven't adjusted anything and the backup managers read it fine. Or maybe it's the game update data? Not sure what to do!

      you need a cd in the drive. when you come back to xmb again boot from the CD/BD icon and not from the home/ps3_game... this should work for some games like cod:black ops..

      Make sure there's a disc in the drive, load the game from your BM. You will ALWAYS be taken back to the XMB. Scroll up to the disc icon in the Games section, and it should say the name of the game you just loaded. Click this, and as long as you did everything else right, it should load the game.

      Does this CFW / BM / patches etc boot backups for 3.5 & 3.55 properly?
      I have been using 3.41 and dongle and don't want to bother with any of these alternative firmwares until I see that they are working properly.
      There seems to be a thousand different methods to get these games working in any of the recently released CFW's but my two questions are:
      Do the games now launch as easily as 3.41 with JB dongle?
      Do they actually work properly?
      I'm sorry if I have come across a little blunt but I have been closely watching and reading all the forums as of late with the releases of the CFW's etc, I know its still very early since a lot of ppl have installed 3.55 and patches etc but still seems like a lot of stuffing around to get games working.
      I have a personal collection of 41 games and the only games that I have not been able to get working under 3.41 are:
      Gran Turismo 5
      Monster Jam path of destruction
      Sega mega drive ultimate collection
      I have tried all the eboot patching etc and they just refuse to work but I am not willing to update to newer firmwares until I see some good results.
      Please feel free to advise on anything I might have missed somewhere and good information is always appreciated and if there comes a time that I can help with any info I will.
      Unfortunately somebody always seems to beat me to it.

      Thanks in advance..

      Use Rogero Manager v7.8...does not work with Multiman

      Also for those having issues make sure you follow STEP 3 and run the PKG once installed.

      Its obvious this is going to be the CFW that wins the race,i know Geohotz is clever etc but come on,up against the RZA,GZA,Method Man,ODB (RIP),Ghostface Killa etc etc.

      Not sure if I can help stxbox360, I am waiting on 3.41 also.
      But you should be able to run GT5 (without updating the game to v1.05) on 3.41. Have you tried the "PL3_FIX" homebrew app?

      Is that the app which fixes the file permissions etc?
      If so yes tried that.
      It did make some of the games that disappeared in the backup manager when I enabled mem patching re appear but sadly the best I can get out of GT5 is a glowing GT logo and no HDD activity and then it crashes and I have to restart it.
      I would be willing to give one of these CFW a test run if I knew that these games would work.

      Fair enough. The other thing I did that made it work/stop crashing was to FTP the original .SFO and let the backup manager patch it for me.

      Yes, you can. Just boot into recovery menu and install official firmware from there. You might want to delete any installed packages or folders created by said packages beforehand, as you won't be able to once you restore.

      To everyone else, I can confirm blu ray and DVD video playback as WORKING, just in case any one was hesitant about trying this because of previous playback problems.

      I got GT5 working perfectly on Waninkoko's custom firmware. It works even with 1.05 update. Using multiman and booting with a game disk.

      But Waninkoko might be a little risky to install thow. It was working for me but you better check the compability list before installing or you might end up with a brick.

      Remember to use the original EBOOT.BIN, and not the 3.41 patched one

      Will you be able to provide a step to step guide on how you installed the game?
      Di you copied the retail folder (BLESxxxxx) under dev_hdd0/GAMES?

      Can you tell us what are the steps? I copied three games and starting from BD icon after patching every thing but black screen or going back to XMB.

      Thanks, yeah tried patching SFO manually and also letting multiman do it as a matter of fact I tried all the released backup managers to no avail.

      And to josvadolla:
      My PS3 seems to be one that will be ok for waninkok's CFW but have just been very hesitant to try just in case I have any issues going back to 3.41 if it doesn't work out.
      There is only a few games that I have issues with I can live without GT5 and wait a bit longer.
      Hopefully there will be a major breakthru released where the CFW is as good as it has been on the PSP as in relaiablity etc

      Yes, i copied the game under dev_hdd0/GAMES using Rogero Manager. Rogero Manager seemed to work better than multiMAN. I did not patch any of the games. I just launched with "BR-Required" from Rogero Manager. After, it took me to the XMB and launched the game from there.

      As for the step-by-steps, i just followed this guide. after patching the lv2, i launched Rogero Manager and tried different settings to see which settings worked.

      I have a fat PS3 with a broken BD. Am I **** out of luck with this hack?

      I'm on 3.41 with GoldenAVR atm, but would like to play without the dongle and boot from remote instead of having to walk up to the PS3 every time I boot it. Not a big deal, but I like to have "the latest"

      Hmmm

      You have to run this whenever you want to run the backup manager (per restart).
      this sounds not so nice... that would mean I need to keep my usb dongle plugged in almost all the time.

      can someone tells if with this firmware in a ps3 with dead BR drive, the games will work? or the people in this situation have to wait?

      cause, its not clear if the black screen its resulting from not executing the patch at start, or if's for not having a disc in the drive...

      No, you just have to install the pkg and after that you will have the icon on the xmb and start it once from there everytime you start your ps3. Only need dongle to install the pkg

      Works great on CECHB01 with 256mb Nand
      OFW 3.41 < OFW 3.55 via XMB software update via USB Storage
      OFW 3.55 < CFW 3.55 Kmeaw via System Recovery Mode via USB Storage
      Install LV2 Pkg and managers via XMB via USB Storage.
      run LV2 Pkg before running managers... works like butter on toast.
      Thank you for the means of freeing this door stop of a machine of 4 years...
      can't wait for a real media center in the likes of XBMC on PS3...
      Sony should be praising these people because sales will jump when finally the PS3 really does do everything!
      could be my new favorite device of 2011!

      And to Sony if you're reading this...
      If you had left the system open with full access to features from the get go...mods could have made great media players and hombrew that would have run in Other OS free from any implement on you because linux is open source...
      Greed has changed you from the days of the Betamax and Walkman.
      Both devices were made to both play and copy media...
      in fact you could call it a revolution...

      That's correct. But at every PS3 (re)start I need to install this again, and again...
      Btw... does it mean that app_home/PS3_GAME/ directory won't show up till pkg installation? Or it's visible all the time, just you can run the Backup Manager?

      First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who made this possible. Thank YOU!!

      I have the 60gig Fat CECHAO1 model. I was using the dongle with FW 3.41 and UPGRADED to Kmeaw CFW!!

      After a few nerve wrecking moments, everything is working!

      The games that are not working are those that have been modified to work with fw 3.41.. I have restored the original eboot.bin to those games that were not working and now they are up and running with no problem!

      OFW 3.41>OFW 3.55 via Restore Mode>Kmeaw CFW 3.55 via Restore Mode>Geohot CFW 3.55 via XMB>LVL2.PKG>Multiman= 100%

      don't know if they can see it...
      im sure the PS3 logs something that they can read if they wanted to...
      so regardless of when you ran any form of mod or dongle at some point... online or not... im sure they can keep track if they choose...
      just enjoy the service until the point comes when there is a ban hammer...
      if it comes...

      when you unrar the kmeaw_cfw_lv2.pkg.rar you are left with a folder that is called kmeaw_cfw_lv2.pkg
      that is the pkg that you need to install
      at least that's what i did and everything worked perfect.

      ok, here are the main questions people are asking, that DON'T seem to be getting answered.......

      1. If someone is on 3.41 with a JB dongle, do they REALLY need to do this??

      2. Will the games that have been backed up on 3.41 still work on 3.55CFW??

      3. What actual code/hack is used?? Does this use Geohot, Wutangrza, Waninkoko or someone else's code/work??

      Also, i have seen people saying about going 3.41 > 3.55 OFW > 3.55 CFW with peek & poke > 3.55 CFW Geohot on top, so u then have peek & poke enabled and the benifits of Geohot firmware too. I am loathed to try this as everything is working fine for me on 3.41 with my JB dongle, but obviously all the new "STUFF" that is coming out is all being done for 3.55CFW, i dont wanna lose everything i have done on 3.41 just to be on 3.55CFW..........

      @DJ_3Sixty
      1)No but you will get back PSN functionality.
      2) Yes they should but if you have modified the eboot then you will need to put them back to original or to 3.55 if you are going to install them as pkg's.
      3)Its all based on Geohots patch of the 3.55 OFW.
      the patch is applied to on top or in addition to the OFW so each patch can be used by itself making its own CFW or can be patched onto an existing CFW
      hope that helps.

      thanx for all the info
      one last little thing, keep reading about THIS BM or THAT BM working or not working, all the games i have backed up are on my external except ones that HAVE to be on the internal for file size reasons, will i have to convert them all to .pkg type or is there a BM that does actually work with THIS CFW and will do exactly the same job as it does on my 3.41 JB?? i have tried reading and there are so many conflicting reports that its hard to know what to do.

      I am following the thread (very good), and I still have two doubts (perhaps
      the doubts of many others).

      1-With this one-CFW installed, you need the dongle to work?
      2-With the installation of CFW, you can go back to 3.41?

      Anyway, is there a good reason to swap to Kmeaw now? And if I did am I correct in saying you would go back to OFW 3.55 via recovery, apply Kmeaw via recovery and then the patch etc?

      You only need to install it once and it will always be on your xmb and you can run it from there and the app_hom/PS3_GAME/ is visible all the time even without the pkg

      no it wont erase your hdd. Your game-saves and stuff should remain. the emu's that use the 3.41 syscalls will probably not work but most of them have made 3.55 pkg's or will shortly im sure. good luck

      one last little thing, keep reading about THIS BM or THAT BM working or not working, all the games i have backed up are on my external except ones that HAVE to be on the internal for file size reasons, will i have to convert them all to .pkg type or is there a BM that does actually work with THIS CFW and will do exactly the same job as it does on my 3.41 JB?? i have tried reading and there are so many conflicting reports that its hard to know what to do.
      I'm using Multiman works great. 82 games installed on external I have only tested 12 only 3 have not worked but that was due to me modifying the Eboot to make it work with 3.41 JB. Replaced the modify Eboot with original and they all worked! I'll report later on the status of the remaining games! Multiman is my personal preference I'm not saying it better, it works for me!

      I answered your question above already.
      when you unrar the kmeaw_cfw_lv2.pkg.rar you are left with a folder that is called kmeaw_cfw_lv2.pkg
      that is the pkg that you need to install.

      Add me to the group of people that have no games launching. They all just go to a black screen.

      Running a 80gb (non-backwards compatible), and I followed all the instructions to a T. Launching the lvl2 pkg works fine and allows me to load the backup mangers, but all games just go to a black screen. I have tried OBM, MultiMan and Rogero and a number of games, but all have the same issue.

      Install a backup manager (must be signed)
      on psx-scene they are saying that homebrew does NOT has to be signed in order to run on this kmeaw CFW. which statement is now wrong?

      My BD drive is broken so I can only launch games from app/home. Does anyone know if this is possible with Wutangrza + Geohot, which is what I'm currently running. I can't see app/home anywhere, so I'm guessing that feature is not yet in place with this cfw.

      Did you installed Geohot CFW 3.55?
      I did the following:

      Original FW PUP md5 before patching: ca595ad9f3af8f1491d9c9b6921a8c61

      It won't quit back to xmb, it just sits at this black screen with what look like stars moving around....the only way to stop it is to completely power down..

      I did have the Geohotz CFW on the system, but when I decided to do this I formatted the drive and started again.....

      I'm gonna try one more time, I'm gonna re-format....Install the OFW, then Install the Kmeaw CFW, The Lv2.pkg and see what happens....

      since I put my cfw folder on my desktop it is so. (Also I named my cfw folder "kmeaw_cfw_lv2"), so it may be different also the ComputerUser is different.
      Code:
      cd C:\Documents and Settings\"ComputerUser"\desktop\kmeaw_cfw_lv2
      once you get in that directory just copy and paste this,

      A decent question. Most likely outcome is you won't be able to play it if sony put a new OFW on the disc. I can only guess that there will be workarounds each time sony update but that is a hopeful guess only!

      just a quick one.. (btw nice tut!)

      i currently have Geohotz JB on my phat ps3.. and i LOVE how you can just have a list of your backed up games on the Games menu in XMB but you cannot update the games i'm guessing that by using this new CFW and the Backup Manager, like previously on 3.41 with the dongle, you can update games again?? but is there any way of having the games on XMB AND update them too like we used to with 3.41 and backup manager?!?!?!

      thanks! :D

      yes i have but almost every post is the same thing atm....... "can not get rogero manager to work", "blank screen" ect...

      a tutorial or link on how to use the back up manager would help me and most other people on this thread.

      Hello,

      first of all, many thank for the work and for this tutorial.

      I would like to know the following:

      - Does it work on Ps3 fat 80gb ?

      - I already have OFW 3.55 (updated through PSN some weeks ago), should I overwrite the FW ?

      - Later, if I want to use warranty (and so - revert all the process), can I install the OFW and the PS3 stays exactly as before this process?

      - Which is the backup manager that provides more compatibility ?

      Thanks in advance.

      Thanks a lot for your tutorial.
      everything worked for me perfectly.

      BUT:
      when I start any application, like for example my Original Borderlands directly from bluray without any BackUp loader, or Flow, I've got a really annoying background Noise/Sound. it's just loud.

      when i'm in XMB, everything works fine. XMB button sounds are normal.
      so is the Musicplayer.
      it only seems to appear at games and homebrews. :/

      any suggestions?

      edit: i've just got the standart "fat" ps3 version. neither slim nor the 60GB.

      have you tried to run the Fix Permissions pkg from Waninkoko?? i have seen on forums saying that backed up games on 3.41 giving you a black screens will work after installing this PKG

      OK, I had some issues with this, Black screen, not returning to xmb to name the two most annoying things....So here's what I did.....

      I formatted my (spare) hard drive, that previously had Geo's CFW.....
      I then installed the OFW......Then checked that games returned back to xmb....
      Then from xmb System update I installed the Kmeaw CFW..again loaded a game and checked it returned to xmb......
      I then installed the Lv2-v2.pkg....ran it and checked Lv2 and game returned to xmb...
      I then installed Rogero backup manager....Shut down system and restarted...
      Ran the Lv2.pkg then installed Ridge Racer 7 to Internal HDD...
      All working OK......

      The reason I did it this way was because I suspected that I was trying to install everything all at once and/or an install of Geo's CFW was not clearing properly....
      Dunno if I was right just know that now it's working, so all those with black screen probs, this might be a fix for you aswell......

      right, what you need to do is download the OFW 3.55 at top of this page then install that in recovery mode(as it wont let you install it normally now) then when that is installed,

      download (if you havent already) the CFW and install this in recovery mode

      This should work fine

      get the programm called "digestIT 2004"
      just install and rightclick your file.
      choose digestIT 2004 and Calculate MD5 Hash.


      @all: my sound problem seems to be solved.
      just played with the audio settings a bit...turned on Multiple AudioOut (dunno the correct english name...) and now the noisy sound is gone.

      That ps3_update is not for the game, it is the firmware update included on each disk so that ps3s with no internet can be updated.

      Everything works but Rogero will still not play games from the HDD. Grant you, I've only tried two games that I own; backed up Williams Pinball and Hot Shots Golf. They load from the disc fine, but through Rogero they will not.

      Not asking for help or anything, just letting people know, its a pain. I not giving up tho, I dunno the model of my slim off hand but its a 120GB slim.

      Black screen problem on my cech2504B (320gb). I successfully install lv2.pkg, then I go to either multiman or rogero.
      with rogero, it seems that there is a problem with eboots, as I get a notice which ask if I want the program to fix it (I get that with pes11). With heavy rain, which I copied just now, I don't get that notice. On both cases though, I go back to XMB, start the game from the blu-ray icon and then I get the black screen. And yes, I have checked the br-required button.
      With multiman same thing happens (there doesn't seem to be any br-required button, right?). I answer no to the "do you want to launch the game right now?" question, go back to the XMB press the blu-ray icon and I get the black screen. With multiman some games get me by themselves back to the xmb.
      One more thing. My tv switches automatically the resolution. So, when I get the black screen, it changes from 1080p to 720p, as it would normally do.
      Any ideas?

      Nope, none modified. I also copied the games back again from the originals to be sure.

      One interesting note, nba2k11. On launch it always brings up a ps3move screen. It still did that in this case, and then went to the black screen.

      Well I take back my earlier post, to a point. Williams Pinball still would not work. HSG does work, but it needed the original disc to run off the HDD, just as loading point only tho. Attempting others.

      This may be a noob question or a repeat one, please do not ban me if this was asked, but we still can't run PS3 games off an external drive? I honestly have a lot going on, I just didn't have time to look the answer for myself yet, so again I sincerely apologize if it offends anyone.

      Thanks,

      unrar them in the SAME folder as the other files, not separte ones, It should look like the picture PIRATE posted.

      I'm currently on 3.41 and thinking of updating
      Just two questions:

      When updating from ofw 3.55 to this cfw through recovery mode, will all data on the int hard srjve be erased?

      I'm currently using open manager 2.1(unsigned of course), is there any reason why i should shift to multi man? And will switching to multi man mean I would have to relocate games on my int HD to a different path?

      And sorry but here's an extra question:

      Should I update now or wait for something better? It seems that this cfw still has some kinks that need to ironed out( black screens, pots not wanting to install, etc.) or do these problems have more to do with user error?

      Follow through the directions. You need to install Official PS# 3.55 FW, then install Kmeaw, then the LV2 patch, then backup manager and you are good to go. You didn't explain enough of what you did in your clean install for people to help you.

      i decided to clean install everything from the begining. so what i did is
      removed the ps3's storage disk and putted it into my pc to format it
      did the format ntfs and putted the hard disk back to ps3
      started the ps3 and got the black screen "press ps button to continue" and did that
      i had loaded before the original 3.55 firmware into a usb stick under the file PS3/UPDATE/
      pressed start and select and the system formats the HDD
      after that it asked me to press again start and select with a loaded firmware 3.55 or later so i put the usb stick on the 1st usb port and letting it do the job
      it reached the 100% then restarted and i faced again the black screen which asks me to push ps button to continue and then on the upper screen i read... the the system could not start and above press start select to install update etc etc...

      cant get it working tried 4 times if you can help me i would be glad

      @dos659

      I had that problem when geohot's CFW came out. It turned out that I just had a bad version of the firmware. Try redownloading it and/or uncompressing it and load it up again. Good luck!

      On topic: Very excited about all these developments! Great job devs!

      @DOS659 - just try with the OFW PS3 firmware again, re-download and delete your current copies. Get that working and then install Kmeaw. With everyone patching FW's left right and center it's likely they might get mixed up.

      If you have been following all of this since Waninkoko you would already know that any console past G/H will work (consoles with 16MB of NAND) on Waninkoko. Kmeaw does not have a brick risk. My J worked perfectly on Waninkoko and Kmeaw.

      .....Orrrr....you could just use Waninkoko (if your PS3 is supported) and install Rogero Manager that has been signed for it. Not only do Geohot's signed PKGs work but regular 3.41 homebrew works as well. No problems for me whatsoever. 3.41 -- 3.55 Official -- Geohot's JB -- 3.55 Official -- 3.55 Waninkoko. The only thing I lost was DVD and Blu Ray playback directly from XMB but it still works via MultiMAN. Cheers.

      I followed the guide on this thread and it worked fine as I said in a previous post. Games are working from internal and external, played GT5 from internal and black ops from external using Rogero manager.

      I have a bit of a problem with the lv2 patcher, sometimes when I run it, I don't get anything just a black screen and the PS3 On/Off button stops responding, I have to remove the power cable to turn it off. PS3 works fine after a reboot, just the lv2 patch seems to be 50/50 if it works or not...

      I did not do the geohot jailbreak patch, is that required? It's not in the tutorial and pkg files install fine.

      Hello.

      I tested this with my CECH-2003A (SLIM 120GB).

      Works flawlessly with no issues so far, Blu-ray, movies, DVD, backups, etc.
      (If you can't play Blu-ray movies, make sure that you don't have the lv2 patcher up, just restart the console and give it a go again.)

      I followed the tutorial (great tutorial!), installed via recovery menu, started up fine so I installed the lv2 patcher and gave it a go.
      Done and back to the XMB. Tried some emulators (yay homebrew!!) works fine with Mednafen or with FCEU PS3.

      Also tried Rogero Manager and tried backing up with my own retail copies. 'Soul calibur IV' and 'Dead Space' so far. I must say that I'm really pleased with this CFW.

      Thanks to all your hard work guys (I'm lazy to write names but thanks!).

      For those that have the black screen problem, format your HDD.

      Ok so please forgive me if I overlooked it but could not find this answer anywhere. Using Rogero BM Manager can I just ftp the games over that I have a backup of on my pc? You know, if i have the BLUSXXXXX folder with all the contents on my ps3 in the hdd0/game folder, and a backup on my pc, will Rogero BM Manager see them or do I need the actual game and put it in the ps3 and let Rogero BM Manager put it in its own format? Thank you very much for any help with this.

      Yes, it works on PS3s with 256mb NAND. And yes, you have to run the patcher every time you boot until a BM is updated to do the same thing.

      Is anyone else having intermitent freeze up in the xmb? Some times the ps3 will just lock up and freeze. Have to hard re-boot it (turn off power on back). Also noticed that [PROTOTYPE] ask for update now and won't work. I am on fat ps3 original CECHA and the cfw applied fine. I did have to patch from recovery but no brick. So far things are ok except for the freezing up and I have to go through all my games to make sure things are good. At least I know COD World at war and COD Black Ops are both working. Batman Arkam Asylum locked up so i deleted gamedata and am reinstalling it. I think some of my issues my be since i had all these working on 3.41 with jb dongle and gaia patched the sfo's and such. NOw i need to put the originals sfo's back on and such.

The only thing I lost was DVD and Blu Ray playback directly from XMB but it still works via MultiMAN. Cheers.
      You can do the same thing with kmeaw's FW and there's no chance of bricking your console at all and DVDs & Bluray launch fine from XMB.

      installed fine, but my ps3 gets frozen randomly sometimes after executing lv2 thing. Probably doesn't do very good for the hardware when you have to hard boot the thing sometimes by unplugging it.

      Not just you, I have gotten some freezing also, mostly loading a BM, but some other times.

      Installed with no problems at all on a phat 60gig upgraded with 120gig HD (CECHC03) UK (256 nand)

      PSN Connected ok

      Could not get Rogero BM Manager v7.8 to copy games to internal hard drive. error opening file - fatal error.

      Tried Multiman - NFS Pro Street - direct boot - no need to go to XMB - updated game online ok - connected to EA nation fine - played online

      Multiman - Heavy rain - copied ok, will not direct boot - needs XMB boot - updating online now - so I presume it will boot??

      so far so good.

      What are the chances of being banned off PSN? any ideas? not that I would mind that much as I dont play online as rule anyway.

      I am hearing a lot of people having problems with game updates.

      How true is it? Maybe it is a good idea not to update your games as yet.

      Yeah there is definitely a freezing problem, something to do with the lv2 patcher I think. It's not too stable but so far no bricks, rebooting always fixes the problem, lv2 problem is in the ram.

      You need to make sure these things:

      1. Rund lv2 patcher first. You only need to run it once after power off/on.
      2. Make sure there is an original disc in the drive (Does not have to be the same game).

      if you are having trouble with backups black screening,you need to fix permissions,make sure to delete any game data for that game and have a unmodified backup,nothing worked for me until i worked this out,also run the lvl 2 pkg first,not sure if you have to run lvl2 pkg every boot,but it wont hurt if you do.treat this like a propper firmware that needs no messing with eboots,etc and you will get your head round it quicker,its just the same as a retail ps3 but running your games from hdd instead of disk.there is also a new version of the lvl2 patcher around so google it,its version 1.2 and is more stable.here ive uploaded the v2 lvl 2 patcher for you.

      I originally had waninkoko's jailbreak and was using multiman and regero v7.8 but they only played 1 game of the 3 I backed up.

      I tried to create custom eboots etc but always got errors

      I gave this a try and it has booted every backup I have done.

      This is how I did it (all from XMB) started with waninkoko cfw then deleted all game data (not save game data)> 3.55OFW>3.55wutangrzaCFW then inatalled lv2.pkg then installed regero v7.8.

      Run Lv2.pkg on system start up EVERY TIME to use backup manager successfully!

      Once in regero load game from hdd, will take you back to XMB insert any genuine PS3 disc into disc drive and you will notice the disc will show, but not the game on the disc, it will show the game loaded via rogero BM. Launch it and game will then load, any game updates are ok to download and install and game will still play! Have fun!

      Thanks to all devs involved for their hard work and dedication!

      By the way my PS3 model is the UK slim 120gig CECH-2003A

      Ok, for those having trouble you might want to try this. I installed the CFW following the instructions and only the games on my External drive work, all the games on my internal drive give me a black screen. What you need to do is fix the permissions using this pkg.

      Should solve the black screen problem everything is working great for me now

      Not sure if I can help stxbox360, I am waiting on 3.41 also.
      But you should be able to run GT5 (without updating the game to v1.05) on 3.41. Have you tried the "PL3_FIX" homebrew app?

      Read more: http://www.ps3hax.net/2011/01/tutori...#ixzz1BWoK1ktI


      how are u running gt5 on 3.41, are u running the origional game (cant be cause it prompts u to update to 3.5) is it patched and how i have e3 dongle and have never even used yet cause im playing gt5, if i could get it to play on e3 w/3.41 i would just do that til something more stable comes out thanks

      - Open "Rogero Manager" , copy game to Internal HDD (it will join the files)
      - Run the game

      Once I've installed the kmeaw CFW following the tutorial, what shuld I do with the backup games (downloaded)?

      I'd like to load them into my PS3 using an USB key...

      Went from Geos -> OFW -> THIS. On 60gig FAT Launch. SUCCESSFUL.

      My only game I have on ps3 is being borrowed so I havnt got to test the bckup, but im sure it works due to all the success stories. THANKS DEV! And Pirate for the tutorial for a noob like myself.


      Also i tried to play a bluray and i got the 800 etc.. error, i just shut down and repowered and it was fine. Not sure if its cuz i ran the L2 pkg or not, i just ran it to see what would happen (1st timer). So not sure if thats a conflicting issue or just that i needed to reboot after all the updates :D

      Thanks guys!

      Yes, lv2 package has to be rerun everytime to power up. Until they incorporate on the fly lv2 in the bm's

Installed straight from 3.41, worked like a charm, have tried uncharted 1 and 2 and both worked fine, netflix works, psn works, downloaded 2 demos to check, and both worked. no problems, using 640gb external HDD, i want to try upgrading my internal drive to larger, so all i need to do is find out how to do that and keep this CFW and i'll be peaches.

      Backup to HDD
      Run lv2 patcher
      Run game through XMB (No disc installed)

      Updated from 3.41 on 250gb slim model. Works like a charm. Tried multiman and rogero. Fifa starts up fine, checked GT5 twice but got blackscreen. Did not try with dics in bluray drive tho, that might be the problem or should I put the original eboot back in? It used to work on 3.41. Many thx for the tutorial and everyone else who made this possible. Who wants a PS3key?

      But you should be able to run GT5 (without updating the game to v1.05) on 3.41. Have you tried the "PL3_FIX" homebrew app?

      how are u running gt5 on 3.41, are u running the origional game (cant be cause it prompts u to update to 3.5) is it patched and how i have e3 dongle and have never even used yet cause im playing gt5, if i could get it to play on e3 w/3.41 i would just do that til something more stable comes out thanks

      Gran Turismo 5 is working fine for me, even the online mode.

      What i did:

      - Replace "eboot.bin" with original (mine had the modified one)
      - Split "GT.vol" with OpenSplit
      - Copy game to External HDD
      - Open "Rogero Manager" , copy game to Internal HDD (it will join the files)
      - Run the game
      - Install lastest patch
      - Enjoy
      Yes, i mean latest update , sorry.

      For everybody having the black screen problem, this worked for me.
      1. Delete the game updates using the Game Data Utility.
      2. Delete the GAME_UPDATE folder from your backup (if you backed it up before you deleted the game updates)
      3. Launch the game from your backup manager and reinstall the updates.

      You need to navigate to that folder (what ever it is named). A alternative you can google for a prepatched verison and skip this step if your stuck.

      There is no history of bans from Sony on PS3 as the console has been only been hacked a few months ago. If you are worried just stay offline!

I have tried every backup manager with FTP capabilities with no luck. Is there a newly packaged ftp server app that works with this latest CFW? I would greatly appreciate any help.

      Ok I did every thing to a "T" from the TUT, but when it came to installing the

      NO FIND THE UPDATE. When it was just working FINE UPDATING from 3.41 to

      3.55 OFW.

      So I then I tried my Portable HARD DRIVE its a "60GB TOSHIBA" with the 3.55

      CFW, an IT WORKED LIKE A CHARM.

      So if you are haveing trouble UPDATING to the 3.55 CFW try a DIFFRENT J

      Works good, hated having to do the usb break ****. I noticed the CFW is a bit unstable with my Launch PS3. But overall was acceptable and with a bit of work, i think the CFW scene is going to be a ton better than the PSP CFW stuff.

      In the future i'd love running games and stuff off an alternative to Game OS.

      Also, don't download the one off the official playstation site. Get it off of PS3Hax. I had this same issue, but the one from PS3Hax fixed it. And if you are using the Launch PS3. Jumpdrives will only work on USB Slot 3 & 4. Use Terracopy and a MD5 checker is a must! In case your Jump drive encrypts files.

      3RD I FOUND: FIX_PERMISSIONS_Waninkoko_Kmeaw_CFW_3.55.pkg = 100KB


      The one posted above in the TUT an two more others.Each one varies in size.

      But its working so far no problems what so ever, so I can wait till its just updated an posted or its just gets implemented in to the mangers.

      I personaly use "Open Manager 2.1 J-2 OMAN46756".

      UPDATE:

      If your having black screens popup while playing a game via BM then chances are you have an issue with "file permissions" in your internal HDD. To fix this, download THIS pkg file into your Flash Drive or External HDD, and install it, run it once, the screen will go black and then it'll go back to the XMB, then you should be able to run all your games properly.

      A helpfull hint I offer all of you.


      DONT INSTALL GAME DLC (GAMES UPDATES ARE OK) AFTER YOU RUN THE LVL2 PATCH, RATHER INSTALL THE DLC BEFORE YOU RUN THE LVL2 PATCH.


      Because every time I tried to install any DLC for any game after I ran the LVL2 Patch is would say 100% Done but would freeze as soon an I hit X.

      So I tried it before I did the LVL2 PATCH an it worked.

      So its just a F.Y.I.

      you need to patch lv2 everytime if you start your ps3.
      you don�t need a usb device plugged in your ps3. just play it from the internal hdd.

      Hi guys, I installed everything correctly. The only problem I am having is running my old backups from 3.41 . They don't seem to work, I installed the lv2.pkg before running the backup manager. I keep getting the black screen. I backed up king of fighters 12 to my external hdd and it loaded fine with a disc inside. Do I have to get the original copy of the game and back up every game?

      for all those who have bluray playback issues donot use the lv2 patch and then play them i have tried this and it works for those who use gaia simply turn off and then turn back on the turning off and turning on applies to both methods
      ************* [ - Post Merged - ] *************
      turning on and turning off meaning turning off and turning on the console without the selected lv2 patch or gaia manager

      Aceface1818 (Great name by the way) you firstly need to fully reinstall regular 3.55 Official Firmware, then patch the 3.55 with the CFW patch and install, then install the lv2 patch, no geohot required!

      I got it. If you have similar problems, you can't use lvl2 patcher before you insert the blu ray. So if u get the error, just restart the ps3 and run the blu ray. Hope I helped someone

      I just installed the CFW which went fine, after install I ran the lv2.pkg (after every boot) but I can't boot Rogero manager, it just gives me a big ol' black screen which makes my powerbutton unresponsive.

      I'm also not having any luck finding a working FTP server for the PS3 so I can transfer games again.

      Could anyone help me out? Considering it's pretty crowded in this thread I'd appreciate a PM the most but I'll take any help.

      Installed the whole thing last night by following the steps to the letter. The only weird thing that happened was that, for the first time ever, I had to install all FWs from recovery. I have a fat 40G PS3 (with a BD non-player courtesy of PSDOWNGRADE, at least until I can get access to a BD-ROM drive to retrieve the "MKB_RO.inf" to my Half-Blood Prince 2-disc special edition) which I believe is a large NAND model. Ran Alien vs. Predator with no issues, but got a black screen after the update dialog for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 (both from external HD using Rogero). However, that's exactly the same result I had for both games back when I was running PSJAILBREAK on 3.41, so it seems whatever didn't work then doesn't work now (yet). I might post some more results later.

      I also want to thank all PS3 homebrew developers for giving us back the right to use our purchased consoles however we want to. This rocks and is an important statement in the digital rights debate. Lets hope the legal battles are won.

      I'm using this method with the new gaia manager and all games work fine.

      Before i was using 3.41 jb so my games were allready on internal hdd. Some games (black ops) would not boot because they had a patched eboot. Found an easy way to get them to work:

      - delete game update (if there) from xmb
      - run game, it will ask to update, choose yes
      - update will now overwrite eboot and game will start
      - some games dit not ask for update so i downloaded the .pkg for those
      updates and installed them manually

      I'm experiencing some problems with the cfws. Firstly, when I switch to the ingame xmb while in any homebrew app (f.e. Emulators), the xmb loads for about 2 seconds and then the ps3 freezes, forcing me to hardreset it. This happens with both geohots and kmeaw's firmware. Is this a common problem with the signed homebrew apps or is it just happening to me?
      Secondly, when I try to start the lvl2 patcher (i've tried every available version) or load a game from the new gaia manager (with lvl2 patching), after about 5 seconds of blackscreen, my ps3 freezes, forcing a hardreset.
      I've tryed every possible variation of installorder, testing checksums of everything, with and without geohots patch applied and reinstalling everything a couple of times with no notable result. I'm using a fat launch ps3, 60gb. Please give me some advice.

      For me the payload makes my PS3 also crash sometimes. So this solution isn't 100% stabile for me atm.

      I've been following the news about Gaja 2.0 today and a lot of people are complaining about problems with the new Gaja manager. I think we are at version 2.02 now (psx-scene server has a lot of troubles today so difficult to follow atm) and it still has problems and it doesn't hide that you are running homebrew.
      -------------------------------------------

      For the black screens, try if there is an update available (with Another New Update Software or another program that does the same), download the update pkg to your computer and install it from an usb flash drive on your PS3. Do not use the lvl2 patcher before the install.
      This way I got some of my games (GT5, Black Ops, RDR) running without re-ripping them to the HD. I think the Eboot.bin's were causing the problems and the updates have new Eboot.bin's.

      @furys-wrath - I would use the older fat model, that way if you do brick it at some point you have the newer model. The old fats use more power and generate a lot more heat than the slims, another reason.

      Try and do a fresh install (ie remove your HD and format, re-install and do everything from scratch). You will obviously loose anything saved, save games etc. unless you back them up first. Secondly, why use Gaja when Rogero and Multi-man work just fine?

      PS3 doesn't use any special file system it uses Linux partitions (not sure which format) if you look at fail0verflows video demoing linux on the ps3 slim (the latest one not the one at the CCC conference) they not only state this, they also demonstrate this by sticking the hard drive from the ps3 into the laptop the guy uses via a usb adapter and navigate through the partitions/files/folders in linux

      But yes you're right about the ntfs support :P though I think its just a matter of time before someone releases either CFW or a backup manager that can handle NTFS...personally i'm waiting for a media player with mkv support to play my hd movies (without converting to avchd)

      I was just thinking about how Sony would know if a PS3 was jailbroken or not?

      Do any of these jailbreaks mask IP addresses making the console untraceable?

      And if they were to be traced or a new update released to, 3.60 for example, how easy would it be for the devs to re-jailbreak?

      As far as I understand, this type of jailbreak is only fixable via hardware upgrade (ps4 for example)

      Could somebody clear this up for me please

      Many thanks in advance!

      You need to be careful talking about that, the mods might not like that, due to the reason you technically admitted you download Little big planet... Just a heads up

      And can someone tell me how to play Black Ops via external? My disc is scratch up so some times it will play and sometimes it wont. And I have limited amount of space on my Internal...All help is greatly appreciated

      I seriously doubt they could trace you, sony just likes to scare people.

      After all, the games you have are legal, you bought them, so I think you should be able to do what you want with them. If you want to put backups on your ps3, then you should be allowed to.

      It seems like sony won't be able to fix the jail break anyways you can tell by their actions, and by the way they're acting.(sue happy) I read somewhere in an article, that sony said the jail break is irreversible(Meaning I don't think they'll be able to fix it.)

Only tested RDR, and GT5. Both worked. I am now looking forward to an already patched multiman because it is the best BM IMHO. Great tut.

      I've played Borderlands online and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood online so all is good.
      Problem is now when I load up Black Ops I get the BLACK SCREEN the update folder was alrdy deleted so what else can I do to fix this black screen issue? (I had game working back when I was still using the usb dongle on 3.41) but now when I load the game, it just black screens and locks up.

      I remember that there was one file I had to edit order for it to play making it think the ps3 3.55 I forgot which file it was, I don't know if this is whats causing the problem but I don't see why it would since that is what I'm on now.

      How do I fix this and Its Just For This Game Only.

      Bro, make sure you have a disc in the drive and then run black ops, should work fine

      If your having black screens popup while playing a game via BM then chances are you have an issue with �file permissions� in your internal HDD. To fix this, download THIS pkg file into your Flash Drive or External HDD, and install it, run it once, the screen will go black and then it�ll go back to the XMB, then you should be able to run all your games properly.
      I can't run all my games properly still, has anyone gotten COD 4 working? Or is the compat list for games still the same as 3.41 JB (with some newer ones working)?

      Not all of my games are working yet either. I can't get Batman Arkam Asylum or Metal Gear Solid to load. I deleted the update and game data and I'm going to try again.

      Ok, I have a simple question that I don't seem to see an answer to in any or the over hundred posts. Will this allow my 3.41 PS3 to play 3d blu rays after I install the CFW? I have a 73 inch 3d TV and I havent updated my PS3 for obvious reasons but if I can do everything I did in 3.41 and play 3d movies I'll do this in a heartbeat. Better than buying a solo 3d blu ray player for $300plus.

      Guys, sorry for the noob question, but there's some many tutorials out there and I'm afraid to do something wrong.

      I just need instructions to try to run a game from external hdd. I have it downloaded already.
      I want use Kmeaw cfw with Gaia 2.02 (or Multiman 1.13.0).

      Which folders I must create? Where must I copy the game files? How to tell Backup Manager to search the game from external hdd?

      Links with instructions will be fine.

      Thanx!

      I was afraid too. But, it went really smooth. The only issue I had was some of my games wouldn't boot anymore. All I had to do was delete the game data and reinstall it. I only have 10 games but all of them work including GT5 which didn't work with my AVRKey on 3.41. But, my ps3 is not the 256mb model either.

      Yes it will output in 3D, but there are MANY issues with PS3 and 3D compatability at the moment due to HDMI standards and the PS3 not allowing you to manually choose to output in 3D etc (anymore as it Did in 3.50).

      Google it and you will see what I mean, but it seems to revolve around the HDMI 1.3 and 1.4 standards as that is a two way thing between player and TV set and the problem appears to be that both pieces of kit are waiting for a signal from the other before they activate the 3D engine.

      I have a 60GB First run and my friends 40gb 3rd run PS3

      I just want to say both keep hanging when using Kmeaw. I have yet to be able to play a backup game.

      I tried Wutangz and that one works 100%

      Only bad things of Wutangz is that it needs any PS3 Game to launch backups because it, sadly, doesnt have the "/app_home/PS3_GAME/"

      So for people with FAT ps3 that are having issues or just want to play it safe, I recommend Wutang + Geohot + GAIA Manager over Kmeaw.

      EDIT: Just found a problem with my Wutangz, it plays internal HD games perfect, but it doesnt read Assasins Creed from my external. I get black screen.

      I really did want Kmeaw to be better as that one works with unsigned .PKG such as the 1.13 multiman.

      Ok i m thinking of trying this custom firmware out def want online capability back. first off ps3 is CECHH01. is that ok.
      Now if i have problems am i able to some how go back to 3.41 or is that it i m done. And if i am successful in this upgrade will my games still work.

      These are downloaded backups not self made backups with original disc. will they work. do i just need to get an untouched eboot and then modify the param to 3.55.

      Also i have the snesx emulator a nes emulator and a arcade game emulator called fbanext. will those all still work.

      last question i have some previously downloaded psn titles i never got too that i d like to play eventually. will those work.

      Have some questions which I hope you can answer because I am considering updating my PS3 with Kmeaws firmware.

      How can my ps3 be in the right language when the CFW comes from somewhere else in the world?

      Can I if I regret always go back the original firmware?

      Can anyone explain to me why there are 3 pkg files in the package with Gaia manager? What you should install?

      If I have a game called BCES-00850 where shall i put the game on the PS3?

      There are no problems with the Blu Ray feature with this firmware is it?

      quick question (sorry if its been asked already, dont flame me yeh, we are all learning here )
      going to take the dive into the update, except I have content that I bought last time PSN opened up, so will it save as I flash OFW for the first step or will it be deleted and I just restore my backup? and/or if i restore will cause problems when I flash CFW?
      I'm on JB 3.41 ofw, US region
      -@ Cadillac Davelle- I'll test my backed up copy Black Ops and my original once I do this in a little while, I'll post results

      Try to insert any other gane into the ps3 then open multiman select the game say no to the next question and you should see on the ps3 menu 2 games; the one you inserted abd the one that you want to play(the backup one).

      This work for me:
      Insert any other ps3 to the system
      Go to multiman and load the game that you want
      On the next question select NO
      On the ps3 menu you should see 2 games, the one that you insert early
      And the one that you want to play
      Select the one that you want to play and presto your game should work

      @killerskunk69



      If your having black screens popup while playing a game via BM then chances are you have an issue with �file permissions� in your internal HDD. To fix this, download THIS pkg file http://www.ps3hax.net/downloads.php?...#axzz1BYJQfWgm into your Flash Drive or External HDD, and install it, run it once, the screen will go black and then it�ll go back to the XMB, then you should be able to run all your games properly.

To fix this, download THIS pkg file http://www.ps3hax.net/downloads.php?...#axzz1BYJQfWgm into your Flash Drive or External HDD, and install it, run it once, the screen will go black and then it�ll go back to the XMB, then you should be able to run all your games properly.

      Hi ! Thx for the tutorial, I really appreciate it.
      Just got two questions;

      Can I do this operation and skip the step 0, cuz mine PS3 is already using FW 3.55?

      And the other question is;
      Do this CFW work on a PS3 120GB Slim PAL-system? I have reed some in the thread but I couldn't see anyone confirming this =P

      If you backup them from a original disc...they should work fine...
      if you download from the web...see if they work on your country.

      use the latest version of lv2 patcher its lv2patcher version 4 and what you have to do is run the lv2 patcher first then run the back up manager and then the game

      Hi everyone.

      I will perform the CGW Installation this afternoon once I get back from work.
      What I wanted to know, since no one mentioned them here are the following.

      1. Is there a way to reverse the Χ and O buttons?
      2. Is there a way to change the region of the DVD/BD drive?
      3. How do you use an external drive to run backups? Some games have files larger then 4 GB, which is the maximum possible size for a file on a FAT32 volume? Is there a way to make the PS3 recognize NTFS drives?

      That�s all for now. Thanks for your time. Cheers.

Could I have done something wrong or do I just not have the right emulators any help would be very helpful thanks.

      I was wondering. I am on CFW Kmeaw and many games i boot first show this "The latest update data is found for this software
      To sign in and use this software. You must update the software to the latest version.
      The update will quit the software and start installing.
      Version 1.01"
      I always prompt Cancel but still can play the game. But why does it ask me to update and can it harm my PS3?

      Try Gaia 2.05 or multiMAN 1.14

      i have taken the time and set up the PS3UPDAT.PUP and added LV2 patcher and multiman so all you need to do its unrar and copy direct to USB drive and away you go :D u can check the PS3UPDAT.PUP out if you like using MD5 checker

      This is normal, did the title you pressed (x) on show as the inserted disk now? If not, do a reboot of the system, and then go in to the BM again choose a title and see if the title you pressed (x) on is now replacing the actual inserted disc in the game-menu.

      Thinking of trying MultiMan

      http://dukio.com/multiman-v11400-imp...-function.html

      But there are 3 to pick someone who knows what the difference is?

      and someone writes one called GH and things which you must accurately use Kmeaw 3.55?

      Like it looks more graphically impressive looking than Gaia.

      Should I pay attention to something else with MultiMan?

      What does "Implemented stack syscall36 function"?
      Something that could possibly damage my ps3?

      Many thanks.

      Im on Kmeaw CFW trying to use Open manager 2.1. but it sees the games, and after I press X the Disc does not change. Tried this on Dead Space 2 and a few other games.
      Any one have any idea what the issue could be"?

      i'm actually just about to switch back to Gaia because I used it ever since it came out for the scene. Its just a personal preferences. There are only 3 or 4 major BM that are specifically for CFW. Just minor differences. Since I hardly have time to play my PS3, I just keep up with the scene, but when I do play I play on Gaia

      Buddy, is this your first time running OM on CFW? did you fix the permissions? Are you getting a corrupt disc sign when you select the game? Are stampeding elephants running rampant? More details please

      I have fixed the persissions, it will just not change the disk. I'm not getting any errors. I even tried to FTP it into the PS3. Loaded it from internal drive. Same issue.
      Very strange. I have a Ps3 with Pps3key, that my son uses. I have not tried it. But I'm sure that Dead Space 2 won't run on 3.41.
      ************* [ - Post Merged - ] *************
      I ran this patch.
      Kmeaw Lv2 v6 (Fix Permissions)
      Is that the correct one?

      Reinstall open M, reboot your ps3 and the problem should be over. Had the same issue and I tryed every goddam launcher (now we have a new one every 3 hours). Finally I'm on openM 2.5.
      Hope this will be Ok for you.

      i just experienced the issue you are having. I actually installed the new lvl2 v6 and the Gaia manager (i'm not sure if this is what you did). I ran lvl2 first and then went into Gaia to test it but it only showed what I had in my BlueRay. I went to multiman and it had the same result. I guess it was conflicting payloads since Gaia has one hardcoded already. I restarted the ps3 and went into Gaia directly without running lvl2 and it was fine again.

      So let me clarify. If I'm using Gaia 2.05 or multiMAN 1.14, I don't need to run lv2 each time I start up the ps3 because the backup manager has it coded when it opens?

      Does anyone have problems playing regular movies or burnt movies. When I put a movie in nothing comes up and when I put a burnt movie a folder that says update comes up but it's empty. Besides that everything works fine I already have back ups so far every game works. Have not tried bluesy movies yet.

      I've found a working fix for getting onto PSN which is by using the old DNS server trick of changing the DNS server address in the network connection settings setup to 67.202.81.137 for both DNS areas.
      This has allowed me to register and download stuff from the PSN with no problems. I haven't played any online games yet cos i've only just started using CFW as i've only just got a PS3 so i'm still learning a lot as it's not quite as simple as 360 or Wii softmodding!
      I hope this helps you out in your quest!

      EDIT:-
      I just found this excellent guide on this site that will help you set it all up properly just in case you have any problems! http://www.ps3hax.net/showthread.php...#axzz1D920dIv3

      I'm having the same problem, if you mean that you can't upgrade neither by normal means (USB STORAGE DEVICE upgrade says the file is corrupted) nor by service mode (asks for 3.56 or later).

      I'm trying on a phat model which I've installed Kmeaw v1 then downgraded to use the 3.41/dongle hack (current status) and now that I want to put Kmeaw v2 I'm stuck.
      Jadoo22, do you have a similar setup?

      Interesting to note that I've done the same thing with 3 PS3's, all slim models, and they went just fine...

      Anybody has a clue on how to fix this??

      Cheers!

      Anyone who downgraded his ps3 to the 3.41 fw stucked in that fw , but there's a solution and only need to have a dongle and official fw 3.40 and modifed lv2 files.First put the ps3 in service mode than put the fw and the lv2 diag files from the 1 folder to the root of the memory stick turn it up with the stick in the right usb port and wait to turn it off automaticly then erase the memory stick and copy the next file from the 2 folder to the root of the memory card and put the right usb, turn it on and wait 5minutes.After this you can upgrade the ps3 fw to 3.55cfw it works i tested.

      Do you mean that I should follow the same steps when downgrading to 3.41CFW with the dongle but with the 3.40OFW and the lv2 diag file, then I'll be able to put 3.55CFW?
      I'll try that.

      Thanks for the help!

      Great guide! I'm a mod on one of the biggest wii hacking sites and have been waiting for a softmod for the ps3 for quite a while. After my feet are wet I look forward to helping where I can. Thanks!

      edit- jackfrass, If you're done and working then you don't need to worry about verifying the md5. It's a way to ensure that what your installing at that point is legit and won't harm your system when you install it. You're up and running so you can disreguard. Future reference any time you see something asking you to verify the MD5 you simply run the program and compare the code given to what the guide states, also looking for any errors. Congrats on your mod!

      Hi just a quick question. im lookin to buy another ps3 for offline purposes and jailbreak it. my friend has a ps3 for sale, really cheap because the laser has gone. I know that many apps games etc etc run off the hard drive but i read on the tutorial that some backup managers require you to have a disc inside the drive to run a back-up. Now my question is will this ps3 with damaged laser still forfil the requirements of running apps games etc off an external hard drive even if backup manager requires disk in the drive, or shud i buy a ps3 with a working laser.

      Hey guys,
      Great reading here, lots of information (even though it took me over 2 hours to read it all!)
      Im keen to do this upgrade but before I do I have a couple of questions:
      1. I've heard that 3.55 CFW doesn't support non-sony peripherals, ie. I have a logitech wireless controller which I have been using successfully with 3.41 + dongle. Can anyone confirm if this is the case?
      2. I am assuming that if you boot up the PS3 and not select lv2.pkg, then play TV will work OK. I noticed that when I jailbreak my PS3 with 3.41 + dongle, play TV does not work. If I boot it normally, it works OK. Is my assumption correct? Any of you guys running 3.55 CFW still use play TV OK?

      Thanks.

      Don't update or you will not be able to mod your PS3 possibly ever again. There are rumors of a possible 3.60 but it doesn't look promising. There is a 3.60 spoofer out that once installed you can get onto PSN for now until Sony updates their firmware again.

      i installed this but i cannot see any game in rogero manager (or any other backup manager).
      I have my games in /dev_hdd0/game, and it worked before, when i had 3.41 and used htc desire as a dongle .
      Do i need to copy the games somewhere else now ?

      I edited manualy the settings of several backup managers (rogerio, multiMAN, etc) to point to /dev_hdd0/game , but i cannot select the hdd tab in the manager.
      What am i missing? Do the games need to be in another format ?

      Hi, quick and simply questions for you guys.

      I'm reading up on following this guide. I have all the files from the above tutorial but missing Step #3 file.

      1) I read up on the post some more and noticed that his file is no longer needed with Multiman 1.14 and above. Is this correct?

      2) Can I have more than one Game manager installed or only one at a time?

      3) If I'm doing this method, Kmeaw 3.55 do I install multiMAN ver 1.16.11 BASE (20110322_170000).pkg or the multiMAN ver 1.16.11 BASE (20110322_170000) WT.pkg file? I'm assuming the first one. If so then I should install also the corresponding BDEMU-355KM.pkg file as well?

      Thanks

      Ronin

      to the two posters before me on 3.60, no you cannot downgrade/jailbreak/install CFW

      you need to wait and hope but it doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon.

      One more question please...
      In the guide he says to
      "
      step 0:
      * Download the original PS3 firmware 3.55 here or here.
      Update your PS3 to the original PS3 firmware 3.55 (regardless of what CFW your currently are).
      "
      if my ps3 is already on 3.55 should i install it again? Or i can skip on step 0?

      04-07-2011

      yes, but do a hdd format first otherwise you will still have files on it that can be seen by Sony which would probably end in a ban.

      In the guide he says:
      "
      • Install lv2.pkg (located under pkg files)
      This is a PKG which you install via PKG option in XMB. You have to run this whenever you want to run the backup manager (per restart).
      "
      What is file doing? If i'm going to install Rogero_Manager_v8.2 i still need it?
      And every time i turn on the PS3 i need to install this file again?

    734. japsander
      04-11-2011
      06:58 AM
      735

      you install the pkg and a new icon appears in the game section which is a lv2 patcher.
      if your manager has no inbuilt payload then you run it each reboot

      the Rogero_Manager_v8.2 has inbuilt payload? and Multiman?

      no downgrade
      no cfw
      no jailbreak
      nothing.

      I was at OFW 3.55 and I installed the kmeaw CFW. I have the install pkg icon on the XMB. I've tried loading different pkg files and everytime I get the message that there are no installable pkg files. I tried using a usb thumbdrive and a cf card with no luck.

      use flashdrive formatted to fat32 and put the pkg files in the root of flashdrive.
      no folders e.g <flashdrive>/Gaia.pkg

      The card is formatted to fat32 and there is nothing else on it. I made sure I dragged it straight over to the card so it isn't in a folder. It's the same card I used to load the cfw on the PS3. I keep getting the same message when I hit triangle and x. If I just hit x on the install pkg icon the screen doesn't display any files.

    744. japsander
      04-12-2011

      and you are sure you have a "pkg" file in root and not the pkg file in a rar/zip file.
      I have never tried using a card, only USB drive so I don't know if it will look on the card at all.

      try another flashdrive/ext hdd etc and see. also try other pkg files in case the one you have us corrupted

      So far I tried different cards and three different usb drives. The third drive, a 4gb patriot usb worked. All cards/drives were formatted to fat32 and were installed prior to powering up the ps3. This one just happened to work. Thanks for your help I appreciate it.

      learn how to pirate properly.
      what you have there are either rar files or an extracted game with split files.

      if they are freshly stolen off the internet then you need to extract them using winrar or similar.

      if it is already extracted. make a folder on USB called "gamez" then put your game folder in there such as "bluxxxxx"
      then load up your manager, plug it in and press circle to copy it to your internal where it will rejoin for you

      Hey guys, I'm a newb with ps3 jailbreaking so hopefully you can help me out... I installed kmeaws 3.55 hack and installed multiman and kmeaws lv2 v9 patch. It took me awhile but i finally figured out that we only needed to copy over 1 folder to the GAMES folder eg: BLES30255, etc... All games show up but they won't load. It just goes back to xml and has no game icon and whenever I go into the apps_home/ps3_games folder it gives me some error. Also tried the BDEMU fix on multiman 1.6 but even after the patch the BD emulator cannot be used error still comes up. Not sure if thats the root of the problem or if I'm missing a step? I know theres a step abotu shadow copying but I don't know exactly what that does and where to copy them from and to. Also I know there are payloads which I'm not sure if I need or not. Please if anyone can help me out I'll paypal some lunch money for the appreciation! lol thanks

      Ive read through about 35 pages so far and spent two days on this!!! Can someone please tell me what I have done wrong? I installed 3.55 original update, followed the tut for making custom firmware, installed custom firmware, skipped the lvl2 patch because I am planning on using multiman 1.17..... Installed multiman v 1.17... I can see games that have been saved on internal harddrive in mulitman, load the game in multiman then it kicks me back to xmb load a bd game in, it reads as the game i picked in multiman. BUT when I click on the icon it goes black for a second flickers and then goes back to the xmb.....WTH!!!! I dont think im dumb.....but what cold my dumba$$ be missing?!?
      ************* [ - Post Merged - ] *************
      and please no one hit me with the install lv2 patch, because i did that already!!!

      I'm hoping someone can shed some light for me before I attempt to install new files and whatnot...First been reading this site for awhile now and have learned lots...I never registered cause I didn't own a ps3 till now and only cause what I've learned and read here...So my situation is this...I bought a ps3 that was modded for 120 as the bd-drive stopped working..Unfortunately this guys little bro did the modding and before this gentlemen brought it over he formatted hd...I can see the /app_home/PS3_GAME/ and install package files on the screen still but obviously does nothing...When I go to system info it just shows 3.55..When I used to have a psp it showed the cfw, now since the ps3 doesn't does that mean I should start a fresh install of kmeaw? Was about to start fresh just now, but though I should ask since my bd-drive is not working..

      what level of not working are we talking about no bd movie playback? no blueray of any kind, or it won't load any disc cd\dvd and bd?

      there are modified pups to get around the blu-ray checks during firmware installs for those with broken bd drives

      PATCHED kmeaw3.55 bdb

      PATCHED OFW 3.55
      http://www.mediafire.com/file/fa4br0...BdBofw3.55.rar


      "use the recovery menu to flash the ofw then kmeaw
      this firmwares bypass the blu ray check then after a successful install try installing a .pkg file like MultiMan etc see if it works for ya - edokassiah"

      Thanks for the quick update unfortunately those files are deleted already...
      I went ahead and installed multiman older version multiMAN v1 16 05 Full and when I try to start it it just displays a black screen...Would this mean I"m not on custom firmware, if so I'll try to search for patched firmware like you suggest
      Found the two links elsewhere on the forum I'm going to try installing them now, thank you for your help...

      if you can install .pkg files (what you used to install multiMAN) you have a jailbroken firmware. as for the black screen on multiMAN after a fresh install it has to build it's database and this can take several minutes if i remember correctly

      NO! the only way to go from 3.56 to 3.55 is to trade your system for one on 3.55 or lower

      edit
      all other methods will leave you with a brick

      Ive read through about 35 pages so far and spent two days on this!!! Can someone please tell me what I have done wrong? I installed 3.55 original update, followed the tut for making custom firmware, installed custom firmware, skipped the lvl2 patch because I am planning on using multiman 1.17..... Installed multiman v 1.17... I can see games that have been saved on internal harddrive in mulitman, load the game in multiman then it kicks me back to xmb load a bd game in, it reads as the game i picked in multiman. BUT when I click on the icon it goes black for a second flickers and then goes back to the xmb.....WTH!!!! I dont think im dumb.....but what cold my dumba$$ be missing?!?

      Its probably the backed up game you have causing you issues. Either your not transferring it right or its a bad rip.

      Try copying an original bluray game to your HDD and test to see if that works first.

      I copied my original to the harddrive through Multiman, and when I load it in Multiman it kicks me to the dashboard and I can see the game I loaded in Multiman even though I have a different disc in. I see the game splash screen on the dashboard but when i click on the disc nothing but a black screen for 2 seconds and then back to the dashboard. It has to be something im not doing right because I have tried this on two consoles. Here are my steps:
      1. upgrade to original 3.55 (done in recovery)
      2. upgrade to kmeaw 3.55 (done in recovery)
      3. install lvl 2 patcher
      4. install backup manager (rogero, multiman, gaia, ive tried all of these)
      5. load game in backup manager
      6. once back at the dashboard load bd game
      7. click on bd game (that reads as game loaded from hdd)

      Try to reinstall kmeaw. If this does not work check if your tv is compatible. If not your ps3 is screwed

      I didn't get to try that yet but oddly enough its fine as of this writing. If it happens again I'll try that out. Many thanks. Oh, my TV is full 1080p compatible.

      I made progress if you wanna call it that. I installed multiman 2.0 and this time when i tried to start game it gave me an error saying something went wrong at the start of the operation. Can anyone help? Im thinking it could be the cfw or the lvl 2 patcher but I downloaded both from xbins. Is there any type of box this would not work on besides the >3.55 fw console?

      I'll tell you all I know: I NEVER used LV2 Patcher on Multiman. All I ever did was install Multiman with BDEMU.PKG and it ran perfectly. Reinstall Kmeaw, install Multiman, install BDEMU.PKG and try it WITHOUT LV2 Patcher.

      just get the full version of multiMAN 2.00.01 and the BDEMU2

      BDEMU 2 is the BOMB and multiMAN 2.00.01 is extremely kickass

      why you may ask?
      I would prefer to let them (MM 2 and BDEMU 2) do the talking. when you try them you will understand

      Installing the PUP via Recovery mode its just a precaution...its more safe that way.
      And yes, you dont need Lv2.
      Rogero and Gaia already have it.

      I really thank you all for the help you have tried to give me, but what i did was reinstall the regular 3.55fw and go to the recovery menu and format the ps3 back to original factory settings. What this did was erase everything on the harddrive, and in turn I was able to correctly install kmeaw and multiman. I read somewhere in this forum or on the net that someone also did this so I followed their lead and now I have a working custom fw PS3!!! Yay!!! Thanks everyone for your help...

      At Step 01 (Download the required the files for CFW), there's a ~390mb file on zshare that have a patched 3.55 PUP, an original 3.55 PUP, 2 pkgs and a .DOC file with instructions.

      When I finished reading this thread and read the DOC file, well, I assumed that most of steps here described were already taken (like patching the firmware, etc) and the user uploaded it.

      So, is it ok to proceed with upgrade with the original pup then patch it with patched pup inside that file?

      Thanks for excellent guide !

      I have a problem (update - I solved it)

      Here is my story:

      PS3 Phat CECHE01 (US/ntsc) got when on holiday to US.

      I followed the instructions exactly and I am having a problem :

      result: flashing screen, like a TV with no arial. Sound is working as I can hear the PS3 starting sound.


      What I did.

      1) downloaded 3.55 OFW, md5 correct.
      2) Patched pup and renamed modified pup - md5 correct.

      Update via XMB, update from storage disk -> result: already with latest update.

      I follow recovery mode update procedure:

      3)Turn off PS3, wait for double beep -> wiredcontroller selected -> selected option 5 (update).

      4)pressed select and start button together -> copy / installer completes to 100%.

      result: flashing screen in cycles (could this be video sync/auth problem).

      sometimes I can see something a second then gone.

      sound is working

      update1: I reverted back to OFW 355 - all xmb working correctly.
      update2: tested with prepatched pup in link, same problem.

      update3: Joined HDMI lead from PS3 direct to TV (please add this vital info at beginning of tutorial)

      update4: Struggled to install pkgs, did'nt know all packages need be on root of storage disk.
      I finally got to install PS3UAE !

      I am a happy bunny. What can I do now. Where to start ? Install FTP server ? Hmm..

      Hi everyone, i'm new to this ps3 jailbreak world so i wanna ask 10 question:

      1. Can you install more than 1 back up manager? in case if one game doesn't work with particular BM so i can try another BM installed

      2. is it important to install multiman 1.16 first before upgrade to 2.00.04?

      3. i have multiman 2.00.04 BASE and not use it yet because it contain many pkg files. I'm confused which files should i install:
      20110602-161200-GENESIS-PLUS [GENP00001] [multiMAN]
      20110602-161300-SNES9X [SNES90000] [multiMAN]
      20110602-161700-FCEU [FCEU90000] [multiMAN]
      20110603-233800-VBA [VBAM90000] [multiMAN]
      BDROM-Reset
      multiMAN ver 2.00.04 BASE (20110606_124500) WT
      multiMAN ver 2.00.04 BASE (20110606_124500)
      etc

      what pkg file should i install? should i install it one by one or what?

      4. someone said there is modified PUP "3.55kmeaw bdb" for broken bd drives ? did anyone try it? plus how to know whether my BD drive is broken?

      5. Is it true that this jailbreak method doesn't work with non-Sony peripheral? because i use SIXAXIS controller...

      6. does it matter if don't install blackbox ftp? incase i never transfer games from PS3 to ext hdd..

      7. assume there is PS3 game i download from internet. how do i play this downloaded games? should i save this to particular folder such "Games","Gamez", or what? if this is kind of piracy...just don't answer

      8. what is BDEMU.pkg? is it something substitute lv2.pkg? should i run BDEMU.pkg everytime i want to run MULTIMAN?

      9. can i use my ipod instead of ext HDD? mine is ipod classic 6th generation,120 GB, and FAT32 format

      10. can i delete backed up games from internal HDD? in case i don't want to play it anymore and give more space to backup new games

      sorry for my bad english, i'm from Indonesia

      Thanks you very much for the answer...an answer for every question is much appreciated

      1: Install as many backup managers as you want. Be careful though, diff managers sometimes use different folders for storing your games and stuff.

      2: Nah, just go for the most recent version.

      3: Install multiMAN ver 2.00.04 BASE (20110606_124500) (without the WT at the end) and Multiman itself will be installed. Search for BDEMU2 on the forums, you will find a link within the last few days, install that too. Install any emulators you wish to have incorporated into multiman. You're good to go.

      4: Unsure, I'd just get the BD drive replaced.

      5: If you're able to jailbreak, then you just need to rock a USB drive for installing the CFW. After install, nothing is necessary. I think you're thinking of the old dongle method.

      6: You don't necessarily need it, but I've found FTP useful for the PS3 in certain cases, like navigating the files/folders on the PS3 comfortably from my computer.

      7: No answer I guess?

      8: BDEMU is no longer required. Neither is LV2. Get BDEMU2. You'll be good.

      9: If it's FAT32 it should work, but don't have one to try with.

      10: Yes, you can delete, recopy, w/e you want. FTP is useful for this, but so are file managers. Multiman makes it pretty easy in and of itself. Hope that helps you.

      Here we go......

      1.YES

      2.NO, install multiMAN 2.00.04 base or full and then BDEMU2

      3. Install multiMAN, then BDEMU2
      (The WT means they are sign for wutangRZA firmware which is just signed with geohot's keys, Kmaew can install these too)

      then these bad boys
      20110602-161200-GENESIS-PLUS [GENP00001] [multiMAN]
      20110602-161300-SNES9X [SNES90000] [multiMAN]
      20110602-161700-FCEU [FCEU90000] [multiMAN]
      20110603-233800-VBA [VBAM90000] [multiMAN]
      these are emulators


      4. there are kmeaw bdb pups out there. yes people have tried it, if the drive is dead you can still use home brew if the drives logic board is broken homebrew and such will not work. Can you put a cd/dvd in and have it work? what about a ps3 game or blu-ray movie?
      IF IT IS BROKEN YOU WILL BE BETTER OFF GETTING A REPLACEMENT!

      5. after firmware 3.50 sony blocked most third party peripherals becuase of jb dongles

      6.MultiMAN has a FTP built in

      7.You will find no help with piracy around here

      8.BDEMU has the syscals required to run your LEGAL back-ups (lv2 patcher can cuase a lot of freezing if you use it to play games....I have never had any games freeze using bdemu) You want BDEMU 2 for multiman 2.00.00+

      9. no clue on this you can try but i think you would be better off with an ext hdd

      10. YES, multiMAN makes this easy and pain free

      Do i get a cookie?

      IMO just use multiMAN i have not found a game it can't play

      eboot mod and eboot fix are to make your back-ups in games that appear on the xmb

      Plus you can add sweet a sweet bgm file to enhance the whole experience. I'm rocking Marooned - Pink Floyd. Adds a nice feel to it, I have to say.

      @Electricguy: Your controller will work as a controller. No more, no less. The "jailbreak" is done by using a USB drive, be it a thumb drive, flash drive, pen drive, external hard drive, etc, not by the sixaxis controller. You'll still be able to use every feature of the controller mind you, so rumble does work, sixaxis works (I mean, as well as it was intended to work I guess? lmfao), and your analogs work no probs. But it sounded like you were implying you'd be using it to somehow crack your machine, which is not possible.

      The extra stuff that comes with multiman, you can basically ignore that stuff. It's not for your average run-of-the-mill 3.55 users. It's used for modifying and resigning eboots for diff firmware versions, using the diff firmware keys. Don't worry about it. And the servgui is what the name implies, a server GUI. Haven't run it myself as I have no need. My Linux servers have all served me well thus far

      And about the multiple folders used for diff managers, I was just saying that one manager might pick up your games list, but another one might look in the wrong folder and find nothing. Rogero and Multiman are both compatible using the folder layout: /dev_hdd0/GAMES/blus*****
      so you shouldn't have any issues with either one. I have them both, so I can guarantee it works fine. Make sure GAMES is caps.

      Oh and btw, that above layout is for internal. Externals just have the folder "GAMEZ" in all caps tossed into the root of the drive. x:GAMEZ/blus*****

      but i wonder something:
      in that guide it's said that use bdemu2-341 for kmeaw and last_game-341 for kmeaw to...is it right?

      because i think we should use bdemu-355 and last_game-355 for kmeaw 3-55
      ,isn't it?

      It is not packaged with Multiman anymore for legal reasons. bdemu.pkg is the container that bdemu.bin sits inside. Without the .pkg container we would all have to install it manually into the appropriate Multiman folder. That's the gist of it anyways. Long story short they are one in the same.

      Also when using google to find it search for bdemu2.bin(these is the hermes payload version)

      Nope. As of right now, there is no way to access PSN on any CFW... Unless you update, which takes away your CFW.

      As for your Q at the end, I'm not sure I am understanding... You bought the PS3, and it already had KMEAW on it? Did you buy it used? And if so, have you tried installing any pkgs? If all your CFW features are working, reflashing is pointless. If they AREN'T working, then check your patch version, and if it's still showing 3.55, then yes, reflash. Otherwise, you're likely boned.

      my PS3 is new, I just bought it about a week ago so I'm new to PS3 things..
      the store ask me if I want to install CFW and they can do it for free, I think everything seems works fine, backup games, pkgs install, no problem at all..
      I was just asking if I could connect to PSN, that's all..
      anyway thanks for the answer..

      3.55 CFW's are just that, they are a complete replacement for OFW so no need of dongle to run Homebrew etc. It's up to you really whether you want 3.41 or 3.55, just do some research and decide which suits you personally.

      As to the pup it should be...

      Extract the kmeaw_cfw_lv2.pkg.rar folder and copy the original PS3 3.55 CFW (PS3UPDAT.PUP) inside the your folder

      here is link http://www.ps3hax.net/showthread.php?t=24694

      also you dont need lv2 anymore

      also make sure you go to ofw 3.55 before going to cfw 3.55

      install multiMAN via pkg files then install bdemu2 and you are good to go.

      Thanks for the reply!

      Yea, I already have a pre-patched PUP...

      A quick question... Can we use PS3 (Using Kmeaw) themes running multiMAN or do they have to be multiMAN themes?

      Hey Guys, when I am installing a .pkg file from a USB Stick does the .pkg have to be in a certain folder? Can you navigate anywhere you want to from "Install Package Files" option under the "Game" menu?

      Question:
      I installed the OFW 3.55 then installed CFW 3.55 KMEAW
      and in MuliMan the firmware shown is
      3.55 [SC-8 I Hermes]

      is that correct?

      yes that is correct. i would suggest installing a spoof to keep from unwanted firmware updates. you can get that here

      Hi everyone,

      I followed the tutorial - it was really useful.
      However, no matter which game I try running, I get a black screen (using either MultiMan or Rogero).

      I've tried setting the permissions, running the black screen fix and erasing the game data files.

      Any suggestions as to what I should look into?

      did you download BDEMU2 and install it?

      Multiman requires it and is a seperate download

      Some games only run on a external drive and must have the BD mirror option in Multiman game settings...

      have you installed bdemu2? also are you trying from internal hd or external?
      do you have a disc in the drive?

      Also have an original disc in the drive.

      I neglected to mention that before that I was using a dongle and the games that ran before don't run now.

      well did you do eboot fixes for them games on 3.41 ? you may need to replace them with eboot fixes for 3.55.

      what games are you trying to run?

      after it goes back to the xmb then you go to app/home ps3 game or whatever.
      if that dont work make sure you have a disc in the drive and then go to the disc.

      [MENTION=236999]Schenda[/MENTION] You'll have to downgrade to 3.55 using a hardware flasher (E3 Flasher or Progskeet).
      But your console must came from factory with 3.55 or below.

      What's the model of your console? If it's a CECH-2000 or CECH-2500, your console probably can be downgraded (use MinVerCheck to know).

      But if it's CECH-3000, you're out of luck and your console can't be downgraded.

      There's no CFW above 3.55, that's because you'll have to downgrade.
      Jailbreak a PS3 is easier than softmod a Wii, but it's a little dificult to downgrade.

      as i thought its a chech.3004A model.
      i also checked the lowest fw whats possible. as i posted its the 3.66 version!

      hm BUT, there is a user named kingkush an he posted here: http://www.ps3hax.net/showthread.php?t=24187
      that he has or had an link to a 3.66 cfw... i search for it but i can't find it. first day at this forum and so... i dont know were i hav to search...

      Everything above 3.55 it's fake or spoof.
      Unfortunately, you're out of luck, your console can't jailbreak neither downgrade to 3.55.

      I recommend you to stay on 4.21, enjoy PSN and other stuff.

      If I am correct when you click download an ilivid internet window pops up saying download. Well all you have to do is close out of the ilivid window that popped up ,and at the bottom of your first internet window it should have the file you tried to download asking you if you want to open or save it.

      Can I run backups out of a generic external hard drive now? I did jailbreak nearly 2 years ago but at that time was not possible and only possible via FTP and I hated it. I still have 3.55. Can I just backup any of my owned games via the PS3 into the external hard drive and play it?

      If your PS3 is on an Official FirmWare (OFW) 3.56 or higher, then you will need a hardware flasher.

      Are you sure you friend is not you.

      Now you are just trolling? I think you know the answer to your question. And if you don't, there is no hope for you.

      You can, It was a well kept secret on this site until it got leaked on youtube. Just search on youtube "CFW without hardware flasher". I'm sure this will get you everything you need but common sense.

      This tutorial is outdated. Look for my tutorial on how to install the latest 4.xx CFWs.

      I recommend Rebug 4.46.1 LITE.

      Just so you know if you were wanting this to downgrade your console then this is no good to you anyway.

      First need to find out if your console model is hackable and able to be downgraded to 3.55

      90 pages of archaic ancient history of 2011, catched up by modern times, as the banner (and the link to the tutorial section) easily shows.

      no one would bother with Kmeaw (badly patched LV2) since PS3 MFW Builder v1 anyhow
