    deank, the lovely man behind the amazing multiman application, has updated the program once again! The update is available for CFW/MFW v3.41 users ONLY.

    To quote deank:

    Ok, some good news for 3.41CFW/MFW users. Thanks to an0nym0us the proper offsets for lv1 and lv2 in 3.41 were located and you can now enjoy the PSX games and direct-disc-access.

    Have in mind that it won’t work for 3.41OFW + dongle. You need to be on 3.41MFW with some lv1 patches like Rogero CFW, Rebug CFW or Hermes CFW (3.41 versions).


    • Improved performance in XMMB display mode
    • Backup from PS3 game discs now works as it should
    • Support for PSX backups on 3.41CFW/MFW (10x to an0nymous for the lv1/lv2 offsets)
    • You can still launch PSX games from XMMB Game Column
    • You can still launch PS3 game backups from DVD-R/RW / BD-R/RE
    • You cannot create ISO backups or access non-genuine PS3 game discs (unless Direct Disc Access is enabled)
    • You will see an animated icon in XMMB Game column, which you can use to launch your PSX backups.
    • To keep the same functionality as before you can turn on “Direct Disc Access” from XMMB Settings column. >>> Press [TRIANGLE] -> Enable Direct Disc Access >>> When in Direct Disc Access mode you can rip BD movie discs, launch games, but you can’t create backups of PS3 Game Discs. >>> Do not use “Direct Disc Access Mode” unless you really need it.

    Download: MultiMAN v2.09.01

    Rogero, the man behind his 3.70 downgrade PUP & Rogero backup manager has updated his popular homebrew application to v8.5. Checkout the changelog below.

    First I want to thank the Anonymous original Open Manager coder for this talented piece of code, then the Payload Developers: Mathieulh, AerialX, Hermes, and Kakaroto for their efforts on improving the Payload, then all the Modified Open Manager coders: Moh_sakhaii, Dean, Jurai2, Drizztbsd and everybody else that i forgot…they all contributed in improving the OM to reach the way it is now, all efforts should be continued to make it better each day.

    Version 8.5 (20/09/2011) ChangeLog from Version 8.4 (04/07/2011)
    8.5.0 - Added Support for Rogero CFW V2 (to bypass the 3.70 spoof & activate the Payload).
    8.5.0 - Added Support for 3.70_Version_Spoofer_2.0_355 and future spoof versions.
    8.5.0 - Added Auto-Restart Option after Payload Type Change from Settings Menu.
    8.5.0 - Added the nice 3D Screensaver (Solar by the Graphics Artist CondorStrike).

    Download Rogero v8.5

    We all know deank is probably the most dedicated PS3 Developer there is on the PS3 Scene, whether it be big updates, or minor updates, he is always working on multiMAN, today he releases version 02.07.00 which is a huge update, here is a quote from the change log:

    * Added: LV2 access rights to use LV1 Storage Manager (syscall 864)
    * Added: LV1 patch for user access to sys_storage functions (syscalls 600 to 623)

    * The above two for regular users mean:

    * Thanks to graf_chokolo and the SACD-Ripper guys!

    * -> Access to all types of optical discs inside multiMAN (file/folder mode):
    * -> Copy/Backup of Blu-ray Movie Discs (decryption may be required on PC) (previously possible only via OtherOS)
    * -> Copy/Backup of DVD-Video discs (decryption may be required on PC)
    * -> Copy/Backup of PSX and Playstation 2 Discs
    * -> Access to AACSMKB_RO.inf on a Blu-ray movie disc to restore lost DRL1/DRL2
    * -> Direct playback of movies/music (avi, mkv, etc) from BD-R/BD-RE/DVD-R/DVD-RW via Showtime for multiMAN

    That’s about it. In short it means that you can now access and copy files/folders from any optical disc (be it to rip a blu-ray movie or transfer a backup of PS3 game from DVD or BDR to your ps3, watch videos in Showtime, etc)

    The download is yet not available, but will be released later today.


    Official multiMAN Thread

    UPDATE 1:

    Please update to 02.07.01 if you installed 02.07.00.

    The link below will take you to the updated with links to 02.07.01 UPD/BASE/FULL.

    There was an issue, which caused some games to error out with weird messages (because of the storage manager intervention). Sorry about that.

    You can also update online to 02.07.01.

    So as most of you know, the PS3 Scene just recently celebrated the one year anniversary of the PS3 being hacked/jailbroken, many, many things have happened in that short year, many changes and break throughs, i have two reasons for creating such a FAQ, the obvious being all the changes, PS3 owners just getting into the scene, need help and guidance, i also seen a failed attempt at a F.A.Q on another site and i thought that mistake needed to be rectified, with a proper F.A.Q :)

    (Q) Why Would I Hack/Jailbreak My PS3 ?
    (A) Hacking your PS3, gives you so many new option’s, you will be able to use emulators, homebrew apps and game backups as well as being able to use Linux, after Sony removed the function in firmware 3.21.

    (Q) Is there a firmware my PS3 should be on ?
    (A) It seems the preferable firmwares are 3.15(For the real OtherOS), 3.41(The original “Jailbreak” firmware) and 3.55(the first CFW PS3), 3.55 is the favourite and most used.

    (Q) What Firmwares cannot be hacked yet ?
    (A) 3.56 to 3.70 are unhackable at the moment, perhaps it will remain that way, or perhaps we will see a break through in the future, only time will tell.

    (Q) But when i bought my PS3, the firmware was above 3.55/My family member updated my console when i was out :( , how can i have Homebrew ?
    (A) All hope isn’t lost, you can downgrade your consoles firmware with devices like progskeet, at the moment, this is rather a tedious process, involving soldering several wires to your PS3, but in the future we will have solderless models of these products, for information on how to downgrade, check this thread:
    Noob Tutorial: How to downgrade/flash your PS3 from firmware 3.70 to 3.55 via ProgSkeet/Teensy++ and install 3.55 Kmeaw CFW

    (Q) Downgrading was a pain, i don’t want to go through that again, is there a way i can protect my PS3 from accidental upgrading ?
    (A) You can use Team Rebugs firmware spoofer, it spoofs the firmware, so that when someone attempts to update the PS3, via internet or disc, the PS3 tells them they are already on the highest firmware, as an extra precaution, you should remove your consoles access to the PS3, when you are not around, you can grab your spoofer, from the offical Rebug site here.

    (Q) What other firmwares can i hack/jailbreak my PS3 on ?
    (A) 2.76, 3.01, 3.15, 3.21, 3.40, can all be “hacked” using the PS Jailbreak USB Dongle or equivalent variants, information on the useable devices, can be found on my old F.A.Q, which you can view here.

    (Q) CFW/MFW Or Dongle ?
    (A) CFW/MFW is the way to go, dongles are more or less dead, apart from the Cobra USB dongle, but it too will become obsolete as its features get implemented into CFW/MFW, also with CFW/MFW, you do not need to do the start-eject combo that is needed with the dongles.

    (Q) How do i install CFW ?
    (A) If you aren’t already on 3.55, you will need to update to the official Sony firmware, then install a CFW via recovery, Pirate wrote a great guide, which you can read here:
    [Tutorial] How to play and install Backups with Kmeaw CFW+PSN without risk of brick or itskamel’s NOOB JAILBREAK GUIDE
    If you wish to stay on official firmware 3.41, the same method applies, but you will need to grab Team Rebugs 3.41 CFW, which you can find here.
    Here is a video of Kmeaw being installed via the Recovery Method.

    (Q) I see many different CFW/MFW, which one should i chose ?
    (A) As i stated earlier, Kmeaw is the most popular CFW/MFW but there are other versions and you can take your pick, all installed the same way as the above method:
    Team Rebugs 3.41/3.55 CFW
    BobbyBlunt’s PS3HaX MFW
    Thelostdeathknight’s PS3HaX MFW
    varaques MFW
    bitsbubbas NFW
    bitsbubbas NFW With Cobra Implimentation

    (Q) I want to test a different CFW/MFW, is it ok to install a CFW on top of another CFW.
    (A) If you have Kmeaw installed, you can install Rebug over the top of it, but if you decide you don’t like Rebug and want to go back to Kmeaw, it is advised that you install the 3.55 Official Firmware, then install Kmeaw, as a precaution, i would advise that is done with all CFW changes

    (Q) Ok so i have CFW installed, how do i run homebrew ?
    (A) You will see in the game section, you will see “Install Package Files”, you will be able to install all your homebrew and backup managers from there, just a note though, the PKG files that you are installing, need to be on the root of your FAT32 formatted thumbdrive/external HDD.

    (Q) Now that i have updated to 3.55 CFW, is there a list of working homebrew app’s/games ?
    (A) Here are a few links:
    Homebrew Games Collection(Maintained by manster)
    Homebrew Emulator Collection(Maintained by Thelostdeathknight)
    Homebrew Application Collection(maintained by GregoryRasputin(me)

    (Q) How do i play my backups ?
    (A) You will need a backup manager, the following are available(We recommend the PS3HaX endorsed multiMAN):
    multiMAN For help, check the (Support Forum) Grab BDEMU2 here.
    Open Manager(Firmware 3.41 Only)
    Hermes Manager(Firmware 3.41 Only)

    (Q) I have my games backed up, i now want to play online, how do i do that ?
    (A) Currently there is no way to access the PSN server to play online, even if a new CFW came out, Sony would block PSN again with a new OFW, so your only real option, if you want both homebrew and PSN, is to have two PS3′s

    (Q) What are my storage options for backing up games ?

    (A.1) You can backups certain games to CD/DVD/BD disc’s, read here for more information.
    (A.2) You can install games on the PS3′s internal HDD or use an External USB HDD, which needs to be formatted to FAT32, you can also use a FAT32 USB Thumb Drive, note that with FAT32 you are limited to games with single files under 4GB, if you prefer all your games to be on the internal HDD, you can get up to 1TB 2.5? HDD, or you can use the Xecuter PS3 HDXT method and have your internal HDD on the outside of the machine, the benefit of this, is that you can use 3.5? Sata and IDE HDD’s as internal storage.

    Some more PS3 HDD Information submitted by ieder-zijn-meis(Thanks again)
    - maximum height is 9,5mm (many 2.5? drives above 640GB are too high too fit inside)
    - maximum PS3 filesystem is 1TB (512KB block size)
    - maximum FAT32 theoretical size is 8TB, practical limit on the PS3 is 2TB
    - 7200rpm can be used, as well as Flashdrives (although the 1/5th lower loadingtime of GTA5 can be considered too low to justify the higher pricetag of SATA Flashdrives.
    - SATAII-300 can be used, although it will work on SATA1-150 speed interface.
    - If using external 3.5? drives hooked up to the internal SATA, you’ll need an external powersupply (some drivebays include them).
    - If on low budget or you like DIY: use a normal extension (male to female) SATA cable (and make sure it doesn’t get loose) and recycle the case + powersupply of an external USB harddisk (without using the USB connection/conversion).
    - Don’t use RAID or SAN drives with (e)SATA interface, just a plain single drive with a bare SATA connector (many controllers don’t work without drivers/software).
    - Games can be hardcoded for BluRay speeds (9MB/s) so sticking a 85~220MB/s harddrive inside will not speedup everything/allways (but most do).
    - If you plan on exchanging the drive, download the full PUP of your FW you are using and put it on an USB Mass Storage Device formatted with FAT32 in PS3UPDATEPS3UPDAT.PUP and disconnect the LAN before re powering the PS3 (or you’ll bound to end up with the latest (3.55 now) unjailbreakable/undowngradable version).
    - Use a good fitting X screwdriver, the screws fitted to the HD<>tray are made of very soft aluminum.

    Here is a tutorial, by forum member Invi, on how to an External IDE HDD Case and use it as Internal Storage:
    HowTo: Use an external IDE HDD Case to connect an Internal 3,5″ Sata HDD as PS3 HDD.

    An image of the Xecuter PS3 HDXT.

    Videos of different HDD expansion options.

    (Q) Now that i am on 3.55, can i install Linux ?
    (A) Follow this thread.

    (Q) Ok im fed up with using my thumb drive, is there a way to download apps directly to the PS3.
    (A) Yes,you will need to instal “Package Installer”, then you will be able to FTP the apps to the “packages” folder on your PS3, you can find more about that here.

    (Q) Ok so i have backed up a game, i want to save that game to my computer as an extra backup, or i want to mod the game, how do i transfer it from my PS3.
    (A) There are two methods, FTP, there are three of those at the moment:
    PS3 FTP Server by CJCP
    blackb0x FTP Server by blackb0x
    OpenPS3FTP(Probably the most stable)
    Alternatively you can use
    Comgenies Awesome Filemanager
    Simple Filemanager
    multiMAN also has FTP and Filemanger options
    if you cant use FTP, or have an External HDD, Comgenies Filemanager is the best choice.

    (Q) I just bought a new game, tried to play it, but it says i need to update my firmware, what do i do ?
    (A) Unfortunately, newer games being released, will be unplayable on current CFW’s, you may be lucky and get a patch, but the chances of those are getting slimmer as time goes on, so the only options you are left with, are update or buy a new PS3, this is the sad situation of the scene, until the scene developers release a new CFW, you will be unable to play the newer games you bought.

    (Q) I want to be able to create my own Homebrew, is it possible.
    (A.1) Yes, using the Open Source PS3 SDK, named PSL1GHT, you can create Homebrew, PSL1GHT was created by AerialX, read about it here.

    (A.2) You can use the Official Sony SDK, it is reported that this is better for creating homebrew, than the open source version.

    (Q) I backed up a few of my movies to .AVI and .MKV formats, but when i try and play them through Showtime, or stream them via PS3Media Server, i get a Cinavia warning, is there any way past this ?
    (A) You can install this app:
    Disable Cinavia Installer (3.41 & 3.55)(By Team Rebug)

    (Q) Can play PS2/PS1 backups on my Jailbroken PS3 ?
    (A.1) You can use this method, it lets you use Swap Magic to load PS2 backups on your PS3, the only consoles allowed, are those that are Backwards Compatible, this option also works on a non Jailbroken PS3, even with firmware 3.70
    (A.2) You can use the Cobra USB dongle, to play PS1 or PS2 backups on your Jailbroken PS3, it is compatible with firmwares 3.41 and 3.55.
    (A.3) You can use this method to play PS1 backups on firmware 3.41 and 3.55.

    Gaia Manager developer Drizzt, has released a small, unofficial update for his useful tool which now supports Unicode.

    This is an upate to Gaia Manager 2.07 which supports Unicode. (character fonts the original 2.07 version does not) This is straight from drizzt but currently is not the official 2.07 build in circulation.

    This will now display the PARAM.SFO information exactly how they are supposed to look. You can now see Japanese fonts, TM, Copyright/Registered symbols etc

    Playstation Move Linux Driver (Demo)

    A bit late on this bit of news, but a developer known as Jacob Pennock is working on a driver for Linux allowing you to control your mouse via PS Move. The driver is currently a private beta but you can check out the demo below:

    PS3 Controller Automation and Macros

    This one is for Teensy++/FW 3.41 jailbreakers. PSX-Scene i3urn has created an macro controller for my PS3 and fully automatic it to his desire.

    To quote:

    I have recently been able to use my Teensy 2.0++ as a macro controller for my PS3. I have used it to automatically start a B-Spec race, wait for the race to finish (~9 mins), then press the correct keys to get the race started again. [And repeat].

    This project is made possible by Mathieu Laurendeau’s source code for his diyps3controller project on google code:
    diyps3controller - DIY PS3 Controllers - Google Project Hosting

    You may download and setup your development environment by following his instructions here: GettingStarted - diyps3controller - This wiki explains a simple way to install developpement tools for the diyps3controller v1. - DIY PS3 Controllers - Google Project Hosting

    After getting everything setup you may take a look at my PS3Controller.c file [Attached below] to get a feel for how to send buttons to the PS3. If you would like to learn more about sending different buttons/moving axis take a look in his usb_joystick.c file.

    The zip file below will also contain TWO hex files for Teensy 2.0++ other devices will need to compile their own, one will press the X button every 11 seconds (useful in GT5 where you need your driver to maintain pace for the entirety of a race) and the other will initiate, wait, and restart the Lamborghini Exclusive race (the first lambo race) in GT5. The second hex assumes a race time of ~9mins.

    First make sure you have turned off your other PS3 controllers or set them to controller other than 1.
    Next just plug in your device and it will be recognized as Controller 1 and begin automation

    I’m publishing my findings so that others can build macros and publish/share them with the community and am not looking for credit ( frankly I didn’t do to much to put it together anyway ).

    I’m a student so I will try to find time to answer questions and develop more macros!

    Homebrew Stealthing Utility v1.3.5

    A few weekend homebrew updates out there today. The first one is Homebrew Stealthing Utility  v1.3.5 by Blazie151. This application does as the name implies - it stealth’s any homebrew application or game as any PSN demo/full game. So you can stealth multiMAN to display as Call of Duty if you so desired. Of course there currently is no PSN so it probably doesn’t matter, nor do we know if this honestly is a true stealth as we have no way of currently knowing how Sony is checking PS3′s (besides theories) - but hey better safe than sorry right :P ?

    Current Feature List:

    • -Stealthed pkg file works on all firmware versions (3.15, 3.41, 3.55) including GH 3.55
    • -Supports all pkg files
    • -Supports run time arguments so you can open this program with a file or even automate it
    • -Grabs the GameIDs and homebrew names automatically
    • -Creates the -conf files automatically
    • -Creates the stealth pkg automatically
    • -Adds an additional user specified file if selected
    • -Can sign the file automatically if selected (3.55GH mainly)
    • -Pause checkbox allows manual modification of files before pkg’ing
    • -Works on Virtual Machines, runs with .net 3.5

    Known Issues:

    • -Some virus protection programs don’t like it. This is because it creates all dependency files during run time, and some virus protection programs don’t like exe files appearing from thin air. If this happens to you, please add the dir this utility is stored in to your excluded list in your virus scanner.

    Coming Soon:

    • -Automatic modification of ini files (like the ones in MultiMan)
    • -Automatically change MultiMan’s log cleaning setting

    Quote from the creator regarding his application and the “stealth” nature:

    Ok, before anyone even asks - NO THIS NOT ALLOW YOU ACCESS TO PSN. It’s an application that will make PSN safer once its restored. Trollers on this thread saying useless crap like “how does this help without PSN access” will not be appreciated.

    So here’s the theory I cooked up from getting information from multiple sources and seeing the data and logs myself, cross-referencing things like what was being played and used, when, how long, log cleaning and safety measures used, and online habits. Needless to say it was a lot of data to sift through to fully formulate my thoughts. Some of this is known, some of it I haven’t seen on the net at all, so here goes…

    Part 1 - Any homebrew you use puts a line in your log files. The log files are not normally wiped by going online. By wiping your own logs, you give reason for flags. The only time your logs would be erased normally is if you formatted your hard drive. When you log in 50 different times with blank logs, it would obviously be something noticeable on the server side, even if $ony is not monitoring it now. It takes more than 5 minutes to format your hard drive, pop it another game and get online. So when you log out, change your game with your boot manager, and log back in with clean logs again, it would look very fishy. All $ony would need to do is cache logs between log ins for a predetermined amount of time and wait for people to start triggering flags and warning that could turn into bans. For this reason, ALL HOMEBREW SHOULD BE STEALTHED!

    Part 2 - If you can see what your friends are playing online, don’t you think $ony can too? The way “stealth” homebrew is currently stealthed is by having it look like a game. The downfall is that you can’t play that game in future, because the homebrew files are using that folder. Also, and a big one here, if your online with that stealth homebrew, it shows that its being played from the hard drive. Now, to me, that looks like a huge red flag waving around with a jumping kid screaming “$ony come ban me.” I mean, if your friends can see that don’t you think $ony can? I would think that would be immensely easy to detect. No gameid starting in B (as in BLES00000) should be listed as being played from the hard drive. I would think detecting this would be more than easy for $ony to implement, especially since the average user can see that now.

    As for only releasing the homebrew stealthed as a single game, don’t you thing it looks weird when 10,000+ people start using a game that’s not popular? I know that question has been asked here before. Even if they can’t ban someone directly for it, I would think $ony could at least monitor those consoles closer than the rest cause again, it just looks fishy.

    Now the solution. What’s the best way to stealth homebrew, without losing ability to play certain games from disc if you wanted to, and have everything look kosher and perfect, even while online? I decided that using PSN demos would be the safest. They never really get played so its not interfering with your regular gaming or other homebrew, you don’t have to ever clean your logs, and your friends and $ony can’t see you playing a disc-based game from the hard drive.

    So why now, why not wait until PSN is back? Well, that’s simple. PSN is coming back, it’s inevitable. Why not already practice good stealthing so when PSN comes back your not scrambling to clean your logs and worrying that something slipped through the cracks?

    This application supports all pkg files that are not firmware pkg files. You can select an extra file to include in the USRDIR directory (mainly implemented that for MultiMan use, since that file is needed to play backups and not included in the MultiMan package). Also, it supports pkg file creation for 3.41 and 3.55, as well as a pause function for manual file manipulation prior to re-packaging. It also saves your output directory and firmware selection for future use, as well as run time arguments. Drag a pkg file on top of it or assign pkg files to open with it in windows, and it will load the first field with that data.

    The only applications I’ve seen have some problems with being stealthed are programs with callbacks to a static eboot.bin folder (like dev_blind), I’m working on a fix for that. Also, any program like MultiMan, that has an options ini file, needs that file modified with the new gameid in order for all the functions, such as covers, themes, etc, to work. All the other functions work fine though. If you’d like, check the pause option and modify the file manually. You also need to change the option to clear the logs when MultiMan boots. I’ll work on a solution for this as well, but for now I’ll also share my stealthed MultiMan with you all so you don’t have to stealth that one if you don’t want.
