• Backup Managers, PS3 Hacks , 26.01.2012

    The latest update to the multiMAN cobra manager has been released bringing various new and updated features. There are some interesting new updates being made on the manager :)

    To quote:

    * Added new display mode (Board 5x4x5), replacing the oldest “Game list (plain)” mode
    >”Board” display mode shows ICON0.PNG game images by default. You can use covers by changing the option “XMMB Icon Swap” in Settings

    * Improved File Manager visuals when used in SD resolution (480p/576p)

    * Fixed an issue, which prevented operation on CFW/MFW 3.41

    * Added support for showing PSN titles in all display modes from internal/external HDD (PSN titles cannot be loaded and you have to put empty RELOAD.SELF in game’s USRDIR folder to make it show!) (requested)

    * Added lastGAME2 and bdRESET applications

    * Added 11 new themes to the theme download section (total of 14 now)

    * Updated 15 language files

    * Added separate background images for Board and XBDM display modes (PSVBG.JPG and XBDBG.JPG)

    * Updated mmCM Original Theme (includes new images PSVBG.JPG, XBDBG.JPG, PBOX0.PNG, PBOX1.PNG)

    * Preparations to support loading of network PS3, DVD and Blu-ray ISO files

    * Preparations to support firmware version spoofer (auto-spoofing to latest official FW or to user-defined fixed version)
    > Required Cobra USB update will be announced when network ISO and firmware spoof support is available

    [Download multiMAN v04.00.01]

      so yeah... not just theme updates
      A better question would be: Is there any reason not to update?
      Your current version is almost 10 months old, try out the new one and if for some strange reason you don't like it, here's some links so you can go back to 1.17.02:

      Hi there. I'm having issues with multiman ever since 4.0 version. Maybe I'll start with my configuration:

      PS3 Fat 40GB (hdd changed to 160GB)
      3.55 Waninkoko (not KMEAW because it was safer for my exact model of PS3)
      no cobra

      When I first installed the 4.0 update it showed me regular 3 yes/no agreements which I all confirmed, then there was some information about applying mmCM theme and then it freezed showing me just this annoying black cartoon face in the middle. Buttons doesn't seem to work, I can't even go back to XMB, the only thing I can do is reset. I thought maybe I'll try full installation, same thing happened. Next thing was the fact, that I couldn't completely delete it, it resulted in 2 corrupt installations which I couldn't delete neither from XMB nor from MM 2.09.02 (the only version that works). I also tried 4.01 version, again, same thing - only the black face. I did go to recovery menu and i restored the file system after which I was able to remove these two corrupt installations, but I still cannot run 4.01 version. Any hints on this one?

      I reported this bug to Cobra USB team, maybe they'll fix the problem soon. I also recommend it to you to report it too, maybe if they see that there are more people with the same problem they will do something with it.

      I'm really looking forward that network loading option, it would be awesome to have it.

      Cheers

      Hi there. Which CFW do you run? It seems to be a common bug while running Waninkoko CFW.

      Kmeaw is the standard (most like Waninkoko), Rogero has many extras (spoof, no call home, lv1 no check (only needed when downgrading from 3.56+) custom boot, etc..)

      I'm not able to download multiMAN Cobra Manager v04.00.01.
      When I click on the link, it sends me to download something called iLividSetupV1.exe, which looks like a virus or a spam.
      Where can I get multiMAN Cobra Manager v04.00.01?
      Thanks.
