    Developer and multiMAN guru aldostools has released an update to his mmTHM GUI, here is a quote from his thread:

    New in 1.3:
    - Verification of theme folder against a verification list of required files (theme.lst).
    - Auto complete of paths.

    I hope this helps the theme creators in the creation of standard THM files that only include the necessary files.

    Other features:
    - Extract THM files to folder
    - Pack THM files from folder
    - Right-click association to pack & unpack THM files

    PS3HaX member aldostools has released a few personal apps that he has created for use with the PS3, here is a quote from his post:

    UPDATE 2012-02-10:
    Updated my collection of tools for PS3 :D

    It now includes 7 tools that I have developed for personal use. See downloads at the bottom of the post.

    PS3 NET Server GUI 1.0 updated!
    It’s an improved GUI for the PS3 NET Server (the PC side of multiMAN).
    (hosts hide in system tray, remember last used folders, supports up to 10 hosts, white list, etc.)

    Changes: Fixed a bug where port was always “38008″, now supports drag & drop

    mmTM_GUI 1.0 new!
    It’s a tool that pack and unpack multiMAN’s theme files (THM).
    (supports drag & drop of THM file, THM file as command line, browse for THM file)

    PKG ContentID 1.0 new!
    It’s a tool for view quickly the ContentID of a PKG.
    (It does more than that, please read the readme for details)

    PARAM.SFO editor 1.0 new!
    It’s a tool to edit PARAM.SFO files and the PARAM.SFX files created by “Create PS3_EXTRA” (see below).
    (supports drag & drop of PARAM.SFO, PARAM.SFO as command line, browse for SFO/SFX file)

    Create PS3_EXTRA 1.1 updated!
    This tool scans for the PKG, MP4 and P3T files copied to each game folder, its PS3_UPDATE folder, PKGDIR or PS3_CONTENT, and store them under a PS3_EXTRA structure.

    PS3RIP 1.0
    It’s a tool that should help you gain some space on your external HDD, removing unnecessary files.

    renam 1.0
    This tool, if copied to the GAMES or GAMEZ folder, will rename the games sub-folders
    from the default “BLUS0000-[Title]” format to “Title [BLUS0000]“.

    …don’t be fooled with the small size of the files 

    All these tools are Win32 and require the VB5 runtime DLL.
    XP users should have this already installed (if not, download & install the DLL).

    That’s all for now

    Some pretty cool updates from the Cobra team on their latest software/firmware update. The new update brings various bug features, and the ability to boot PS3 ISOs via network connection! Yes it is now possible to play your PS3 games from your PC.

    Changelog of Cobra USB Fw 5.0:

    - Added support to play isos from a PC using network connection. No more waste of time copying between PC and ps3, play directly from the files on your computer!

    Requires to run the supplied ps3netsrv server application (it is inside mmCM 04.01.00 download) on the PC, a version for windows and linux is provided (mac users can use the windows version with wine
    Note: when using wine, we recommend to run directly the command line ps3netsrv.exe and not the gui).

    Currently the following items can be played from network:

    * PS3 isos
    * PSX cue+bin or isos
    * Blu-Ray isos
    * DVD isos

    Currently the following items cannot be played from network:

    * PS3 games in JB directory format (planned for 5.1 release)
    * PSP isos (planned for 5.1 release)
    * PS2 isos (planned, but we cannot estimate the version)

    Although Cobra doesn’t restrict the isos from being loaded through wifi, wifi is too slow for most uses, we recommend to use a wired connection.

    - Optimized a bit the read of PS3 isos (15-20% gain in external disk, not noticeable in internal disk)

    - Added dynamic firmware version spoofer capabilities. You can set the spoof in mmCM settings. As Sony release new firmwares, the spoofer can be updated by updating mmCm, without
    need of updating Cobra USB fw. No system files are modified by the version spoofer, all take place in ram.

    Changelog of mmCM 04.01.00:

    * Changed: Nethost PC server application “ps3serv” is replaced by new windows/linux application “ps3netsrv”

    * Added support for playing PS3 and PSX games in ISO/CUE+BIN format from remote net_hosts (PCs connected to the LAN)

    * Added support for playing Blu-ray and DVD-Video movie titles in ISO format from remote net_hosts

    ! NOTE: For best performance and compatibility of the new net_host interface, a WIRED network may be required (Wi-Fi is also supported)

    ! NOTE: Root folders served by remote hosts must contain /PS3ISO, /BDISO, /DVDISO and /PSXISO folders to enable remote content

    * Added new option in SETTINGS column: “Network Servers” for setting up to 10 remote nethost IP:PORT values

    * Removed: *nethost* settings from options[_default].ini are ignored and no longer supported

    * Added new option in SETTINGS column: “System Firmware Version” for “spoofing” current FW version to 4.00 or higher

    * Added support for thumbnail images for remote BD/DVD/PS3/PSX ISO/BIN+CUE files (*.jpg / *.png)

    * Added support to copy files from one net_host to another

    * Added support to delete folders from remote net_host

    * Added support to view files in TextViewer from remote net_host folders

    * Added support to copy games and ISO images to remote host from SIDE menu ([TRIANGLE] in XMMB/XBDM/BOARD display modes)

    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

    Although to most of you this is not big news, I decided to take few pictures of the procedure for using Remote Play on your PS Vita to access your CFW 3.55 PS3.

    The main “trick” is to register your PS Vita as “mobile phone” , so that’s about it.

    You need:

    * PS Vita (mine is on FW 1.05)
    * PS3 (mine is on FW 3.55 KMEAW)
    * USB Cable (provided with PS Vita) to register the vita to the ps3
    * Wi-Fi network to use the remote-play at home
    * 2 mins total to complete the registration

    More pictures at read more link…..

    CobraUSB dongle makers have integrated the most popular backup manager into their firmware: multiMAN, along with a few other updates.

    - Added MultiMan for Cobra in the download section.
    - Support for games with split files.
    - Bugfix: special keys of bdremote weren’t working in showtime.

    Multiman for Cobra changelog:

    * Full ISO and CUE+BIN support (incl. create ISO from folder)
    * Full Cobra support (PSX, PS2, PSP, PS3, ISO, BIN, CUE, BDM, DVD)
    * PSP UMD game support when PSP connected in USB+UMD mode
    * Support for *.0/.31, *.001/.032, *.66600/.66631 split file formats
    * Join split files in file manager (select and copy the first file to get the rest joined)
    * Mount ISO files in File Manager (to browse/copy contents)
    * New display mode “XBDM” - XBOX Dash Clone
    * Support for games with split big files (from external hdd)
    * BD/DVD Region options in SETTINGS column
    * Support for PS2 game covers (OPL format, i.e. SLES_123.45_COV.JPG) in /covers_retro/psx (over 2000 covers included)
    * Integrated Dongle Updater (in mmCM XMMB column)
    * Option to turn on blue/green dongle leds or turn them off completely
    * Integrated PSX, PS2 and PSP database for names and IDs (over 13000 entries) (for PSX/PS2 discs and PSP ISO/UMD files)

    For those reading the threads previous comments, there was a initial confusion on the update as CobraUSB labeled the release of multiMAN as version 3.00, and many people felt that this was an insult to multiMAN. However, our favorite dev deank has came out and posted about the matter here:

    So much accusations, blaming and calling names. I just managed to read all of that and don’t see the point.

    I’m actually glad that for the first time I see a clone/fork of multiMAN which has things and features ADDED. I’ve witnessed 4 or 5 releases of multiMAN, compiled by various users or sites, castrated and barely recognizable, renamed and published as ‘original work’ (there was no drama there, right?!), but this time some users get a better version, although limited to cobra dongle users. As I see it, the new stuff in mmCM is about cobra and it is nice that someone picked up on the ‘garbage source-code’ (as many qualified it numerous times few months ago), and managed to add useful features to it.

    I don’t care who uses mm’s source, so just stop the drama. The license says ‘you can do whatever you want with it’ and it doesn’t require that you include the modified source or anything. Check your English skills and re-read it. It requires that the redistributed package/version includes the license and it does - there is a ./usrdir/sys/LICENSE file in their distribution.

    As I see it - cobra usb users got a new option and that’s good - I like that now they can enjoy a multiMAN clone. Actually I feel kind of good that mm will reach more people. As for the mm 02.09.02 being the latest (not last) multiMAN version - well if I find something new to add - I’ll add it. I spent a year adding stuff and features and it looks good to me as it is now. If I find time - I’ll add more. If you find time to add something useful - add it - the source was there for 7 months and no one cared about that.


    A lil’ bit of love n’ appreciation is what we all need in the scene :)

    With the new “break through’s” this week, one of them being PS1 backups running on the PS3, utilizing multiMAN’s filemanager, deank decided to implement this method into the games column of his application, here is the change log, make a note, the changes are the total from 02.07.00 to 02.08.00.

    * Added: “Create ISO” option in SIDE menu when BD/DVD is selected in VIDEO column or PLAYSTATION/PLAYSTATION2 is selected in Game column
    * Added: “Create ISO” option in File Manager’s context menu when /dev_bdvd is selected
    * Added: Creating ISO files bigger than 4GB to USB HDD will result in splitting in segments .iso.0, .iso.1 … .iso.31
    * Added: Advanced option in XMMB Settings: “Expand Contents of XMMB media columns”
    * Added: SD/SDHC, CF and MS/MSPRO devices to Photo/Music/Video columns
    * Added: Standalone Web-Browser application with FTP (BROWSER.SELF) to avoid all memory issues
    * Added: Support for launching PSX games from CD-R discs (XMMB Game Column and other display modes)
    * Added: Launching directly ps1_emu.self or ps1_netemu.self from file manager will make multiMAN assign your Memory Cards properly, too
    * Added: Options to set preferred Video Mode for PAL and NTSC PSX titles (default/480/576/720/1080)
    * Added: peeklv1 and pokelv1 commands to control console
    * Added: String printout for peekl and peeklv1 control console commands
    * Added: Prompt to dump Hypervisor/LV1 after creating GameOS/LV1 memory dump
    * Changed: Improved the looks of the old debug font, used in some dialogs and file manager
    * Changed: multiMAN starts faster now
    * Fixed: Unnecessary auto-refresh/scan for content on each startup
    * Fixed: Browsing for ROMS in ZIP format

    All features related to PSX discs require firmware 3.55 (kmeaw/rebug).


    At the moment, the update is online via PS3 only, the full version will be uploaded here.

    To play PS1 discs you must be on 3.55CFW and use PS1 backup burned to CD-R disc (using bin+cue as source in IMAGE BURNING mode). It doesn’t work for PS2 games. It doesn’t work for PSP games. You can’t mount an ISO from the HDD.

    UPDATE 1:

    Another quick update to multiMAN:

    * Improved detection of PSX discs (reading one sector to verify region/type)
    * Detection of possible user-errors when editing options.ini

    Solar, an awesome screen saver & FTP server has been updated by condorstrike to add support to Rogero Backup Manager and multiMAN.

    Solar update: Version 2.2

    Rogero Edition and multiMAN Edition, pick your poison.


    Fixed soft reset when exiting to xmb with PS button

    Packages are now half the size, Thanks DeanK.

    Ftp is a little better, can be used as many times as wanted now.

    Changed animations around.

    Some more code clean-up.

    ***be aware***

    when using FTP, you have to connect & re-connect twice to return Solar’s animation, till I fix that.

    Download Solar - Rogero Edition

    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.

    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.

    Deank as always, is working hard on bringing improvements to his awesome piece of Homebrew, this minor update, removes the old FTP sever and implements jjolano’s OpenPS3FTP, here is a quote from the source:

    * Changed: Implemented OpenPS3FTP by jjolano and removed the old buggy FTP server (faster transfer speeds and no path/file length limitations)

    This should clear most of the FTP problems multiMAN had. Transfer speed is now faster, you can use 8-16 simultaneous file transfers, and the problem with long path and file names is gone now.

    The implementation of openps3ftp is based on older version from jjolano, but still is much much better than what multiMAN had until now, so big thanks to him!

    More updates from deank on the latest multiMAN:

    Update version 02.06.02:

    multiMAN versions 01.10.00-02.06.00 ran in VSYNC mode (it caused barely-noticed tearing because of the double refresh rate). Latest update compensates the speed by lowering multiMAN performance in XMMB mode, while keeping the outlook. It means no tearing (unless you really want it - switch with SELECT+SQUARE)..

    Opening a SIDE menu will make current entry icon zoom 8x and visible enough in 480p/576p modes. Looks pretty in photo, music, game/fave/retro columns.

    “Key Repeat Delay” for some reason was ignored when changing it… Now fixed.

    Update is available online, too.
