Backup Manager 2 for PS3 JailBreak Arrives, Compatible Games


Sponsored Links
206w ago - Yesterday Hermes released a modified PSGroove version for running PS3 backups without a disc in the drive, and today Ulmez on Elotrolado.net (linked above) has updated the installer to PS3 JailBreak Backup Manager 2 along with a Compatible Games list (below).

This Backup Manager lets /bdvd link to app_home/PS3_GAME so to load your PS3 game backup with this manager will need to have one of the Hermes hex codes on your device. To install it just overwrite the existing one, you do not have to delete the currently installed Backup Manager.

Once you have Jailbroken your PS3 you can launch the backup manager. Select the game you want to load and press X. It should then drop you back to the XMB. Now select app_home/PS3_GAME and press X. If all went well your game should load without a disc in the drive.

Not all games are work yet with Backup Manager 2 without a game disc in the drive, with an internal or external hard disk drive, so in the PS3 JailBreak Game Compatibility List add "Backup Manager 2" to the notes section if you used it in your results.

Here are my Backup Manager 2 PS3 game results thus far:

• 3D Dot Hero - External HDD - Working
• Donates Inferno - External HDD - Black Screen System Lockup
• Boarderlands - External HDD - Black Screen System Lockup

Finally, to quote, roughly translated: "Thanks to the work of Hermes is possible to load backups without having a BluRay on the reader, but as we all know the Backup Manager is leaving us for the work load a game without the disk inside.

But thanks to a very nice anonymous user that is no longer a problem because this program has been modified to not ask for the disc. So, in conclusion, it is possible to play without a disc in the console

To install it is not necessary to remove the previous one, just what you copy to a flash drive and instalais. The console will tell you that already exists and you will be prompted to overwrite it (if the ID matches, leads the original), you accept and go. Also respect your installed games on the hard disk, which is welcome.

IMPORTANT #1

It is important to you to know that not having a disc in the console BluRay icon appears in the XMB, you ought to go to the "app / games" to load from there select the match after the Backup Manager.

IMPORTANT #2

Some games do not load if no disk in drive nonetheless. Apparently not too many, but can be solved by inserting a disc, as with the original Backup Manager. Not a problem if the Backup Manager or PSGroove.

Remember that it is necessary to have the latest revision of PSGroove with Hermes changes "

If you delete any of the "old" backup managers it will delete the folder LAUN12345 (because it was created at the time of the installation) so uninstall will delete it. Your games are in this folder so... bye bye

As far as i know atm there is no ftp programm available, which can RENAME or MOVE.

But if you want to move over to Open Manager then just overwrite the existing Manager. Open Manager scans your harddrive for the folder "GAMEZ" and will ask you to use it.
Um, the Blackbox 1.1 FTP program can rename files and folders...

a question please: if you delete the backup manager version 1 or 2.0 no matter, what will happen with the games that you have made backup on the internal harddrive? when you install another backup manager will it find any game on the hdd?

When starting a game what does the following mean?

"No Default string. Must be loaded from INIFile"
