    deank has updated multiMAN to 4.10.00 to help out REBUG REX users. Seems also there is a new feature called “Dummy_BDEMU” which will help users with a broken blu ray drive, but working logic board to play backups on their MFW ps3.

    multiMAN ver 04.10.00 BASE CEX (20121103).rar (26.42MB)
    http://www.sendspace.com/file/gvywpa

    04.10.00

    * Added full support for 4.21REX (REBUG) firmware
    * Added support for 4.21REX in DEX full mode (DEX flash + DEX lv2 kernel)
    * Added support for PS1 disc backups for 4.21REX CFW in DEX/DEX mode
    * Added support for direct-disc-access for 4.21REX CFW in DEX/DEX mode (data CD/DVD/BD discs)
    * Added support for flashing 256MB NAND *.EID0.NANDBIN backups
    * Users with broken BD drives can use 4.21REX in DEX mode with fake BDEMU stick/image for 100% game compatibility

    IMPORTANT NOTE: If you’re using DEX mode in 4.21REX, use this CEX version of mM (do not install the reguar DEX mM which is only for official dex firmwares).

    ===============================

    This package also includes:

    * Rebug Toolbox 02.00.00
    * c2d + openssl
    * DUMMY_BDEMU.rar

    ===============================

    About DUMMY_BDEMU:

    It is to help users with broken BD-ROM drives (which have a working logic board and married to the PS3). A lot of games have issues when started from /app_home or using “Direct Boot”, that’s why this is the BEST solution for such users. You will have to be on 4.21CFW REBUG (REX) with DEX Target ID flash and DEX LV2 Kernel (full DEX MODE).

    Here is the readme:

    If you do not want to waste a whole USB HDD you can use a
    small 512MB USB STICK to emulate your broken BD-ROM.

    Needed:
    * PC and PS3
    * USB stick/drive (512MB minimum size)
    * Disc Image Generator Software (ps3gen)
    * PLAYSTATION3.iso Dummy BDEMU image
    * 4.21CFW REBUG (REX) operating in DEX mode with DEX lv2_kernel (FULL DEX MODE)

    * Connect a USB HDD to be used for BDEMU
    * Start “Disc Image Generator for Playstation3″ (ps3gen)
    * Click “Show” button in the top right-hand corner
    * Click “Select File…” button
    * Locate and select “PLAYSTATION3.iso” provided in this archive
    * Click “Save / Emu …” button
    * Select “Write Image to BD Emulator HDD”
    * Select your BDEMU USB HDD
    * Pick a slot from the list and click “Write Image”

    =====

    On your PS3 with 4.21REX CFW and multiMAN 04.10.00 installed:

    * Install “Rebug Toolbox 02.00.00″ and launch it
    * In SELECTOR: REBUG MODE / DEBUG XMB / DEBUG MENU
    * In DEX/CEX: Flash your DEX EID0 NOR/NAND file (DEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN or DEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN file on /dev_usb000 stick)
    * Quit Toolbox and reboot your PS3
    * In XMB “Settings” go to “Debug Settings” and set “Blu-ray Disc Access” option to “BD Emulator (USB)”
    * Turn off your PS3
    * Connect the BDEMU USB HDD drive/stick to the right-most port (/dev_usb000) - the port closest to the BD-ROM drive
    * Turn on your PS3

    * You should see “PLAYSTATION(R)3″ Game Disc mounted in XMB Game column
    * Start multiMAN 04.10.00+, load a game from internal HDD or external USB HDD connected to another port. Do not unplug the BDEMU USB drive.

    * Start your game from the Disc Icon in XMB.

    Done.

      Time to move to 4.21 Rebug REX now ??

      I have 3.41 rebug and I never downgrade it to 3.41. I bought this PS3 few years ago through pawn store and it was on 3.41 before I updated to 3.41 rebug and thats what I am using so far but I want everything such as homebrew and ReActPSN the way it was to Rebug REX and also playable with everything including 4.21 games ? I am aware that you must bring all original eboots and original param.sfo first in order to be playable again.

      Did something change that requires all 3.60+ games to be on internal HDD? I get black screen on all new games if I try playing from external but not internal. This is on Rebug 4.21 with MM 4.10

      What's odd is that back on kmeaw 3.55 I could play FF13-2 on external with the 3.55 eboot, but on rebug 4.21 with the untouched eboot it needs to be internal.

      Edit: Just tried a pre-3.55 game (Trusty Bell) and that one gets black screen'd too, but after the company logo. Soulcalibur IV just takes me back to XMB.

      There are no other USB devices and I also installed bdemu but no change

      something is different about emulator. If you use Hermes it asks to copy split file games into internal, but then it crashes when going back to XMB. If you use Standard emulator, it works with all the games, BUT the one split of course, it asks to switch to hermes. Dang D:

      Although the change log mentions that "Users with broken BD drives can use 4.21REX in DEX mode with fake BDEMU stick/image for 100% game compatibility", I have tested this feature with Rebug REX 3.55.3 with a working BD Drive.

      This means, now we can play games that require a disc on drive without a disc. Amazing!

      Yes. But you have to use Rebug REX CFWs and you have switch to DEX mode. Which also mean you have to perform a Flash Dump using Rebug Toolbox or MM and patch the valid dump to DEX ID.

      Not possible. It requires DEX features. Use Rebug REX CFWs.

      I'm using rogero 4.30 cex for few days now and working great. But yesterday I had problem..BluRay drive on PS3 is broken. I guess, because it won't ready disc in it.
      I have tried reinstalling CFW from scratch.. rebuilding data.. etc.. and still not working. I just didn't try with cleaning kit. So what should I do? Buy cleaning kit and try to clean the lenses or to install rebug 4.21.1 REX and with DUMMY_BDEMU from MM?

      Also great job [MENTION=114607]deank[/MENTION].. you rock! :D
      and one more question for deank.. will be the option DUMMY_BDEMU available also for other CFW like rogero 4.30 v1.0 CEX?

      Something that crossed my mind.
      During the previous 'golden age' when we had 3.55 + psn a year or so ago, Sony sent out mails telling us to stop jailbreaking and such. Obviously they can see what we are playing

      I thought some history file was stored on the ps3 but i can't remember where it is stored, and/or if Multiman nukes it upon start/exit (thus erasing the fact you ran multiman).

      Anybody remember? Anybody know other steps to take to stop $0ny from getting this?

      I think you have read misinformation, every 3.55 n0drm or Duplex etc fixed game that I have works with Rebug 4.21 and Rogero 4.30 without changing back to original eboot/param

      Showtime in multiman should read xsub subtitles for the one's that use AviAddXSubs program to add subtitle to a single avi/xvid file. I like showtime because it shows the covers of the movies in our list of movies... but it's sad it doesn't read xsub subtitles... showtime detect the xsub subtitles but it cant read it, cause the subtitles doesnt appear while watching movies.

      Or maybe someone could create a movie reader that shows all the movie covers on our list of movies, and all supported subs, that would be amazing. ^^
