117w ago - Today Hermes has released HManager v1.0, a PSGroove Hermes v4 PS3 Backup Manager based on PSL1GHT, Tiny3D, PS3Soundlib and OpenPS3FTP.
Download: HManager v1.0 for PS3 / HManager v1.0 PS3 CFW 3.55 Port / PS3 LV2 Patcher v9 / HManager v1.2 for PS3 / HManager v1.3 for PS3 / HManager v1.4 for PS3 / HManager v1.5 for PS3
To quote from the ReadMe file via ornella: Based on PSLIGHT, Tiny3D, PS3Soundlib and OpenPS3FTP, is the first manager of code open and made about Homebrew tools.
Is intended for the base psgroove-hermesv4 and in particular for CFW 3.41 (is compatible with old dongle, but in this case will not be active some features). This program should be used for the legitimate use of backup and author disclaimed any missuse that could do third persons and only recognizes the uses that allows the Spanish legislation in the private sphere.
Allows loading games from internal and external HDD, bluray, like Open Manager: copy, test and delete games available
Includes psgroove-hermesv4D payload, with signed self.
It is presented with a graphical interface which represent 4 x 3 icons on the screen.
It allows adjusting the screen, change the games directory and change background color.
Minimizes the use of buttons and the possibility of a mistake by pressing the wrong buttons (especially designed for children)
Includes FTP support (OpenPS3FTP), the possibility of syscalls blocking (through internal key: it is recommended to compile the program
changing "hmanager_key" by another) and the possibility of releasing PS3LoadX directly.
Possibility of replacing EBOOT.BIN in new games by other external BIN
The games settings are saved in a private directory (using the game ID)
LEFT/RIGHT/UP/DOWN -> move to select game. Out of limits changes the screen
CROSS -> load game options and go to the XMB
TRIANGLE -> go to XMB
SELECT -> go game configuration options
START -> go to global settings of the HMANAGER
Configuration options and global:
UP/DOWN -> move between selections
LEFT/RIGHT -> select (Config.) (Game)
CROSS -> select
CIRCLE -> return
At any time:
L2 + R2 + START -> adjust screen
Config. Game -> go to Config screen. Game
Copy Game -> copy games from BR/HDD
Delete Game -> remove games from HDD
Test Game -> makes a test reporting if the game have Big files or Split files
Copy EBOOT.BIN from USB -> copy an EBOOT.External BIN from /dev_usb/ps3game to the /dev_hdd0/game/HMANAGER4/self directory. The expected name is "ID".BIN (e.g. in GT5, BCES-00569.BIN). This feature requires payload v4D and activate "extern EBOOT.BIN". Thus, it is possible to launch the original bluray in 3.41 with modified self
Return -> return
Screen Config. Game:
Fix Permissions -> change between "Default" (original console needing certain games), "ps jailbreak" and "v4 Perms (F1)", which is the mode default payload v4
Select XMB -> switches between "Debug" (XMB with jailbreak) and "retail" (requires disk to launch game, but allows other things)
Online Updates -> by default is "on" (does nothing)... Changing to "off" in payload v4D amending the flight version of the application, while avoiding upgrades.
Extern EBOOT.BIN -> select between "on" (requires an EBOOT.BIN previously copied with your ID) and "off"
Save Config -> save the configuration in /dev_hdd0/game/HMANAGER4/config ("ID".cfg)
Return -> return (yeah!)
Overall screen Options:
Video Adjust -> Video adjust screen
Change Game Directory -> to change games directory (autodetected between /dev_hdd0/GAMEZ and /dev_hdd0/game/xxxx/GAMEZ)
Change Background Color -> change background color on the other hand to your liking
Press To Enable Syscall Security -> enable not allows other programs to use the syscalls 6,7,8 and 36 used by payload
Press To Disable Syscall Security -> remembers to modify "hmanager_key" and compile the program if you want a maximum security
Load PS3LoadX -> option to load the utility of developing PS3LoadX. If the permissions were set in "default" you can be useful as well as should first launch HMANAGER to ensure the payload version latest
Initialize FTP Server -> once started, shows IP and port. From a client FTP access as anonymous
Return -> return (yeah!)
Notes on compilation:
Requires the latest PSL1GHT, Tiny3D and PS3Soundlib from my git: https://github.com/hermesEOL
Obviously, it is possible to adapt the programme to other payloads/firmware versions and the source this at your disposal to do so.
Due to recent problems with github.com and other development sites, I prefer to publish the code source and binaries to the old way:
in format ZIP/RAR and I invite other developers to publish their changes in the same way.

To quote, roughly translated: Well everybody, the day has come and this is my message: I’m not just leaving the scene, but as a user altogether (along with EOL).
As a final gesture, he published the source code needed to compile my latest project (HManager + PSL1GHT + + Tiny3D ps3soundlib updated) should anyone want to continue the work in my place (of which I have already done enough)
Why I’m going? Well, because I’m tired; the pitcher plant filled and the trap snapped shut.
So, good bye, I wish you all well, a big hug to those who really deserve it as well (as those who don’t deserve it), keep it all up because maybe one day life will throw you a bone, but then maybe it’ll give you a kick in the teeth, because that’s the price we pay. In any case, perhaps I’ll read your posts once in a while, but my participation is over. Hermes has written her last post here.
Attached below is Hermes Manager v1.2 and v1.3 for PS3 CFW 3.41 with the changes as follows:
Version 1.2 Changes:
BDEMU added to launch games from /dev_usb00x/PS3_GAME with black screen like Modern Warfare. Allow to launch games from /app_home/ without any Bluray disc inserted. (it needs the option "BD Emu (for USB)" in "On")
Version 1.3 Changes:
Added Auto patch PARAM.SFO (it renames the original file as _PARAM.SFO)
