• Backup Managers, PS3 Hacks , 20.02.2011

    deank is proving his genius skills again, he has implemented a webrowser which supports PKG downloading in his latest version of multiMAN. You can download PKGs straight from the PSXstore.com.

    To quote changeslog:

    • Web browser with PKG files download working
    • Improved switching between display modes
    • Improved memory management
    • Grayscale images for split-games
    • [SELECT]+[X] remembered for games on USB HDD
    • (DEV) Functions to blur, alter sat/bri/contrast, mipmap/scale
    • (DEV) Preparations for new display mode and GUI

    [Download multiMAN v1.16.01]

      i figured he would have added some more stealth to the program

      Is that web browser superior in any way to the one that comes with the PS3?

      all you people asking for stealth dont get it. sony can see into your ps3. they have the equivalent of a rootkit. until we can block that there is no stealth, just an illusion.

      Am I missing something?

      Please correct me if I am wrong.

      Whenever you connect your PS3 to the net, even if you don't log in your PSN account, sony is able to recognize if you are using unauthorized software/firmware and ban you.

      So ... what's the point of using multiMAN in this way? Will it hide somehow your connection from sony?

      if the rootkit was as all encompassing as people think where is the valid proof in charles that they can see everything. or can control our system or delete things off our ps3.. this is what i have found out on my system

      OK so i have read a lot of these threads posting about bans and not being able to get on.. if you've been banned or perma banned its cause you were cheating or you were logged into a game server that cheating was going on in and they couldn't pin point the person or persons and they banned everyone.. im sure they used the ole saying "kill a few to save many" so they see it as we banned 50 people on blah blah server there might have been some Innocent people in there but it was for the good of millions. everyone received a email about not using non sony crap (scare tactic) ...with that being said if you are still able to log on to psn spoofing to 3.56 with Charles you CAN spoof your console id and your service id. I have been logged in for 9 hours even after accepting the new tos... i logged in successfully with a random spoofed console id and service id. i watched everything my ps3 sent and received through Charles even on boot up.. (I HAD TURNED OFF MEDIA SERVER CONNECTION AS WELL AND TURNED ON MANUAL PSN LOGON) nothing was transmitted when I started and stopped multiman. I didn't start up any games so I don't know if info is transmitted when you boot a game or just when you go multiplayer. But I was logged into psn for 9 hours I then logged off psn rebooted and logged back on. I even changed my console id and service id 15 times while logged into psn with random numbers yet keeping with the general layout and I received no bans or boot offs .... I think that the mass mail was just a mass mail scare tactic and the bans were bans based upon people that were logged into bad servers or being bad on servers or running disc-less backup managers on sony servers. I have found no information that I can find by watching internet traffic on my console that they can see if we are running a cfw or ofw. Other than the games reporting an incorrect blus or reporting nothing at all. This would be the only way they can tell we are not legit. Running a crappy or outdated backup manager or running a disc-less backup manager will throw out red flags as well if playing on psn ....I can only speak for myself and my console and what i have running on it and what I have tried but i believe we are giving sony to much credit on what they can and cant see on our systems....if im wrong show me valid proof in charles. but please dont flame me for trying to help..

      Yes you are correct.. sorry ....

      the older versions of multiman 1.14 allows stealth and disc-less support it was the disc-less support that caught the eye of sony when you logged on to psn and there are other backup managers that still allow disc-less support and those report a game as -4544234 instead of blus-01234 so say your on a sony server playing blackops and your disc on the server says -4544234 in stead of blus-01234 that is a dead giveaway and and easy ban... just saying.... i run the 1.15.4 version which requires a disc in drive to mount a game onto.. that way it will grab the blus of the mounted game and makes you appear to have the physical game in the drive....and also if you go under network settings and turn off all the items that auto log onto the internet there is no background information being sent over the internet to sony's servers. it works similar to win xp's an error occurred do you want to send info to MS... hell no ... win 7 does this automatically without asking unless you go and turn it off...

      You have to go into file browser mode and click on where your IP address is, then it brings up the browser.

      I'm not sure, as my reality is often distorted by some substance or another,.. but I think it displays copy status differently based on the file structure of the particular game. >>> If there are many small files, it displays this way. I could be wrong, but I remember reading that in a changelog for one of the BMs a while ago, I think it was MM.
