199w 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 / [Register or Login to view links]

To quote from the ReadMe file via [Register or Login to view links]: 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.

Features:

  • 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)

Controls:

Online games:

  • 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

"Options" 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: [Register or Login to view links]
  • 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.

Thanks but the first game I tried uncharted 2 failed. On startup the turning spear was corrupted and then turned off the PS3.

I think in a couple of releases this really could be very good. What other backup manager is being made by the same person who makes the payload? Understand the payload / make changes to it can only be a good thing to get more games working. Plus not many people know PS3 modding like Hermes.

Think I'm sticking to multimanager though for the time being. Nice to see CFW 3.41 still going strong.

Yep! I'm still on 3.41 myself (Hermes CFW). I don't have that many games anyhow. I can just use the EBOOT pkg fixes for newer games and run from XMB instead of a backup manager. I don't mind!

I thought I was really clear that no one should still be on 3.41 and people staying on the old FW, as well releasing stuff solely made for 3.41... is nothing but a huge waste of time.

You've stated some examples like modded eboot, but we are saying the same exact thing. It's not worded wrong either I think you just misread it somehow.

no worries we are sayin the same thing though... 3.41 FW and apps solely made for it = dated and waste of time... CFW 3.55 is the standard everyone needs to get aboard that already and stop dragging the scene down.

This looks to be a port of hermes uloader app for playing wii backup games. It is the same blue background, menu options and image layout.

hermes is really talented but would be better served to work with the other devs instead of insisting on using his own (sometime flawed) work. Same stuff with the wii a few years ago he had to write his on IOSs to run his own backup loader he couldnt use the waninkoko ones that were available alraedy and better than his. people who came here from the wii modding scene know waninkoko > hermes.

I can appreciate what he does for the community and i can understand that he may just get joy out of building something from the bottom to the top that is uniquely his, but as far as the community is served itd be better having one of the more talented guys working with others instead of always blazing his own path.

Kinda why his loaders aren't used any for wii the 2 standards are wiiflow and config usb, uloader only redeeming quality was it played wiiware titles... now that other loaders do that theres no reason for uloader at all really, it does what others do, but others do it better and don't look like their GUI was designed for a 6 year old kid.

The reason why I'm staying on 3.41 is because of my knackard Blu Ray drive.

Some people like 3.41 since $ony disabled 3rd party controllers, etc after that. There's no reason to go past 3.41 at this point really.
