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 forgotthey all contributed in improving the OM to reach the way it is now, all efforts should be continued to make it better each day. 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. Those of you who enjoy multiMAN, can show deank a little support, by 🙂. Deank has just updated multiMAN, to version 02.06.00, with many cool additions, here is a quote from the Change Log: * Added: Support for 7 connected controllers to be used simultaneously * Added: Animation/slide effect when browsing USB/PS3HDD devices in XMMB mode * Added: BD Remote controller buttons: YELLOW BUTTON = Restart, RED BUTTON = QUIT * Added: Experimental motion/movie background support: If wave.divx is present in multiMAN’s USRDIR folder you can enable motion background with SELECT+TRIANGLE. 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: (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. (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.
(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: or 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 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: (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: (Q) How do i play my backups? (A) You will need a backup manager, the following are available(We recommend the PS3HaX endorsed multiMAN): For help, check the Grab BDEMU2. (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, 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 HDtray 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:. 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. (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 “ ”, 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: Alternatively you can use or 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. (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: (By Team Rebug) (Q) Can play PS2/PS1 backups on my Jailbroken PS3? (A.1) You can use 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 method to play PS1 backups on firmware 3.41 and 3.55.

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. 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: You may download and setup your development environment by following his instructions here: 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. AFTER YOU’VE INSTALLED THE HEX TO YOUR DEVICE: 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?
Okay well here is what I did, it is simple. Download PBP Unpacker Buy any PSX game off of psn and install it on your ps3. (Lets say Spyro) Connect FTP and get the EBOOT.PBP File from the psx games directory.
Download an EBOOT.PBP PSX EBOOT PSP Game from pspiso.com of the game you want. (Lets Say Resident Evil) Open the EBOOT.PBP of Resident Evil and extract all of the files to a folder and name it Resident Evil. Now open the PARAM.SFO that is in the EBOOT of SPYRO and EDIT it if you like and extract it, overwriting the PARAM.SFO in the Resident Evil Directory. Now choose to make a NEW PBP using all the files in your Resident Evil directory. You should be using the PARAM.SFO from Spyro to build it. Now when you got your NEW EBOOT.PBP upload it to your PS3 SPYRO directory, overwriting the original (MAKE SURE TO BACK THEM UP!!!!) Turn PS3 off then on again, launch SPYRO and it should work as Resident Evil. If by chance this does NOT work, you may need to Edit TWO PARAM.SFO 1.
In the Root Directory of your psone game on the ps3. The PARAM.SFO that is injected into your EBOOT.PBP The edit you want to do is change the DISK_ID to that of your Resident Evil (Which is SLUS00747) You may also need to sign the file! Find that program.
Key here is you need to OWN a PSOne game to replace it! Now I may have missed some steps here as I was trying a TON of different things, if so I am sorry.
I used this method to get Resident Evil DC working by using the Resident Evil Files to replace the Castelvania files in the EBOOT.PDP. If anyone finds more info please post it. I'm not interested in downloading any pirated ps1 games, but it seems like with this information and a little bit of fiddling it should be possible to rip my own PS1 games to.iso, convert the.iso to.pbp format that the PSP would accept, and then inject that pbp into a PSN PS1 game I've already purchased. It's sort of a ghetto way to do it, but with a little scripting it might not be too painful. Anyone want to try this and report back?
For those that don't have any PSX games from PS Store you can download 'Xi [Trial Version]' for free from Hong Kong and Japanese stores. If you don't already have PSN accounts for these regions then set one up for Hong Kong as that store is available in English, Japanese store is only in Japanese.
If this works then it would be fairly easy to implement in a backup manager. Convert all EBOOT.PBPs to have same PARAM.SFO as base game for example 'Xi [Trial Version]'. Backup manager will then copy selected EBOOT.PBP (along with document.dat, ICON0 etc) to 'Xi [Trial Version]' and call lv1_panic to reboot lv2, then simply launch 'Xi [Trial Version]' to play new EBOOT.PBP.
