33w ago - Shortly following his PS3Ultimate PS3 TV Application v1.10 update, PlayStation 3 homebrew developer RazorX has also released a PS3 RCO Free Package Manager and Web Browser Plus PKG file with details below.
To quote: Hey guys I've created this simple rco free package manager installable zip file for you, this can easily be incorporated into your cfw with very little impact and is completely safe and for those of you who want to install a package manager that won't need you to replace any rco files, this is great if you created your own cfw and installing a standard package manager will change your XMB names or layout.
This also will allow you to install packages from:
Along with this I am releasing a Web browser which utilizes multimans browser which means you can launch the Web browser from the network category and download pkg files directly to your hdd and with this package manager install them also the package manager it's self will show up in the network category so it's out of the way.
This won't damage or replace any other package manager you have installed.
For those of you who don't know how to install this all you do is extract the zip and put the PS3~dev_blind~vsh~resource~explore~xmb.zip file on your usb stick then launch multiman, goto mmOS then browse your usb stick and double click on the file and it will ask you if you want to install it choose yes and you're done.
Hope you enjoy this please let me know what you think..
Q: What does RCO-Free mean?
A: It has exellent compatibility because it will work on just about anything also imagine you made your own cfw with altered rco files and set it up perfect just the way you like it then you install a package manager and because it replaced a rco that you had altered you hard work is gone.
Also it reduces the size to next to nothing and it makes it 100% easier to incorporate it into your own cfw if you choose to make one or already have one and since the xml files hardly change you could probably get away with installing it on any update whether you install it with the installable zip or do it manually and it has the multiman downloads folder added to it.
So if you download a pkg through multiman it will show up on the package manager and it also has the directory for the web browser app I provided you can see the full list in the spoiler I'm all about making things simple why make the same app complicated if you can make it simple also if you don't know what your doing its best not to install something that could potentially damage your PS3 with this you don't need to worry.

Thanks for the update boss, I was waiting for the spoofed 3.72 version. Anyone else here use PS3ultimate?
For anyone wondering how to put PS3 applications like multiMAN in the homebrew or retro tab you will need to change the data type in the Param.sfo file using a SFO Editor.
Here is the code:
So if you wanted to put multiMAN in the homebrew tab you would to change the data type to one of the following codes.
After you change the Param.sfo you can manually move the Param.sfo to the folder in where the application is kept, if it was multiMAN you would move your modified Param.sfo to /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608. You can also make a .PKG with the modified param.sfo too.
I was lucky enough when I bought my PS3 that it didn't have a good wifi signal so I barely catch my son downloading (slowly) a firmware update... Since then I blocked the Sony updates server (dus01.ps3.update.playstation.net) on my router, I recommend it to everyone.
Well accidents can happen or a friend of yours might start an update. Even soo, many new games include update of firmware and if you are too fast on your fingers you will or might accidently start an update when you start a game. ps1 and ps2 games will be suppoted in the cobra implemention to cfw... don't know if DH is working on it for first release...
my best bet is that it will come as an patch update or as an separate emu. Dean had PS2 support for backups in an early release of Multiman for fat model.. but it was not stable.
Does this work on 3.55 rebug? and is it possible to uninstall?
Looks like this is a new cfw with or with out spoof. 180mb pup file. Probably lose rebug or any other firmware if update.
Mehh... When or if it ever gets backup support for ps1 and ps2 games AND be able to boot them up flawlessly and play them, then maybe I'll get it. Until such time I will play the waiting game. Those "spoof" things are pointless. Because seriously who is dumb enough to accidently update their firmware?
