50w ago - Following up on his previous release, today German PlayStation 3 developer IcEmAn (aka IcEmAn2012) has shared a guide on using PS3 Mount Package Install Disc to mount games and avoid multiMAN relaunching with details below.
To quote, roughly translated: Create 4.xx XMB BOOT Packages
1. Install multiMAN and lastGAME pkg
2. Mount game with multiMAN (no BD mirror) - Game should be mounted in lastGAME app
3. Copy content (dev_hdd0/game/BLES80610)
4. Make a 3.55 mount pkg (xmbgameloader)
5. Replace EBOOT.BIN and LASTPLAY.BIN (from BLES80610)
6. Compile the new pkg (_makepkg_hdd.bat/pkg_npdrm.exe)
Restart console and mount game with pkg
Start game without multiMAN (you can delete lastGAME app)
4.21 XMB BOOT Packages (Mount Package Install Disc) - 50 Games for German REBUG XMB MOD v01.08.01 (will install in mount games folder under games category)
1. Extract Mount Package Install Disc.rar in dev_usb/GAMEZ/ or /GAMES
2. Mount Mount Package Install Disc with multiMAN (like a game)
3. Insert Original Disc and install Mount Packages files
4. Restart console
5. Mount installed Mount Package file (in Mount Games)
6. Run with disc !
Mount Packages are modded for REBUG XMB MOD v01.08.01 and shown after Install in Mount Games folder under Games category!
Games must be in dev_usb000/GAMEZ/ and must have right names!
Game is among them: dev_usb000/GAMEZ/Call of Duty – Black Ops II-[BLES01717]/PS3_GAME/...
Install Mount Package files, insert a original game, mount it and run the disc!
May have problems with memory stalls occur, maybe game data have to reinstall, not work all games!

Finally, from deank on lastGAME's versatility: lastGAME application gives the moders a lot of freedom:
1) It loads Hermes payload (for firmwares 3.41, 3.55, 4.21, 4.30)
2) It can be repacked with any game ID
3) A text based configuration (lastplay.bin) in its folder allows you to configure a game to mount/load
4) You can repack lastGAME with custom LASTPLAY.BIN file to mount any game
lastGAME is a basic multiMAN add-on for almost two years.
LASTPLAY.BIN supports parameters for "Direct Boot", "Regular Load/Mount", network or local load of ps1/ps2/psp backups.
SELF=<path to eboot.bin/.self>
PATH=<path of game folder>
USBP=0 or 1 (for 3.41 usb patch mode)
BOOT=0 or 2 (0 = normal load; 2 = direct boot on 3.55)
BOOT=1 (1 = for direct boot on 3.41)
TITLEID=BLES12345 (title ID of the game)
TYPE=1 for local games (1=PS3 game, 2=AVCHD/BD, other values for BDMOVIE/DVDMOVIE/PS 3ISO/PS2ISO/PSPISO/PSXISO)
HOST=IP_ADDRESS (for network ISO via net_host)
PORT=PORT (for network ISO via net_host)

sorry, I am still a bit noob. I've read that only NAND models wich are the fat good ones can be downgraded in 3.56+ recovery mode
I had this experience with Rogero 4.21 2.0 cfw and a HUB USB: data corrupted before even recognition (no install of course). ppl, Please!
There is a cheap way of downgrading this console. I have pratically total control over it, I mean none is going to upgrade it besides me. so Teensy++ look to be the cheapest one because is only U$24+some shipping. More options? will Teensy 3.0 that is cheaper also work?
To quote, roughly translated: Infos for AVCHD Movie Packages for German REBUG XMB MOD v01.08.05! (People don't want English version of v01.08.05 ? So I made it for German only at moment)
AVCHD movie packages are adapted to the Rebug XMB MOD v01.08.05 and appear after installation in AVCHD Movies folder under Multimedia category!
Films have an AVCHD structure (MTS).!
Path: externally in dev_usb003/BLURAY / + correct name!
Example - Film is located at: dev_usb003/BLURAY/THE_EXPENDABLES_2_AVCHD/...
Movie Package install, restart and start movie on Blu-ray icon from external HDD!
Thanks to developer deank for lastGAME and other additional information supplied via the forums.
1. Create (splittet 4gb part) AVCHD-Structure (.MTS) from your movie on external hdd (tsMuxeR)
2. Install multiMAN and lastGAME pkg
3. Double click on .../BDMV/INDEX.BDM (multiMAN) - Movie should be mounted in lastGAME app
4. Copy content (dev_hdd0/game/BLES80610)
5. Create new ID folder with standard PARAM.SFO
6. Add EBOOT.BIN and LASTPLAY.BIN (from BLES80610)
7. Add a movie picture (320x176) and create pkg (make_pkg.exe)
thats true... but you still need multiman to get last game working! i always thought that mounting games thru xmb is way more comfortable and looks cooler! i think he should add a button to make a mount icon to xmb straight from multiman!!
so multiman would be used anyways because u need to create the mount file in the xmb... but you don't need to run it everytime to start a game!
i think he at least put up this option for those who don't really need the other features of multiman!
