What's new in multiMAN 04.06.00:

  • multiMAN celebrates 2 years. CONGRATULATIONS!
  • Added support for 4.21CFW (CEX) (syscall 6-10 required):
  • "Standard" BD-Emulator option (sc36) (Hermes not supported yet)
  • Direct Disc Access (LV1&LV2 patched for Storage Manager access)
  • Raw access to optical media (PS1 backups & Showtime access to BD/DVD/CDs)
  • BD-Movie Region Changer
  • BD-Mirror for INT/EXT games

! Not fully tested with Red Power's 4.21CFW (Hermes payload used and syscall 1021 required)

What's new in multiMAN 04.06.01:

  • Added support for 4.21CFW (DEX) (syscalls 6-7 required):
  • "Standard" BD-Emulator option (sc36)
  • BD-Mirror for external / USB games

Finally, below are some related comments on the multiMAN v04.06.00 update as follows:

From Lightyear: multiMAN has supported 4.21 for a LONG time. now it's just CEX 4.21 support... it's really not that different. and deank releasing mm that supports 4.21 does NOT mean a completely 3rd party scene group is working on a new 4.21 CFW! they are not even working with dean... they have their own backup manager, according to their posts. *facepalm*

FWIW, multiman automatically worked on 4.21... dean didn't change anything to make that happen. someone just tested it out and realized it worked. just like PSX support. that was just a native thing that someone just "discovered" was working one day.

From deank: I see no mentions of DEX in the "What's new"/change log, quite the contrary. And - no - the mM update server is not hacked.

I just woke up and read some posts about some chinese shtty dongle for 4.21... Just to make it clear - the mM update has nothing to do with it and doesn't need a dongle if used with 4.21cfw. It is a pure speculation I guess, because there are a lot of people around who won't allow another dongle to surface anyway. I don't believe that their dongle (which I doubt it exists at all) will see the light of any day!

Why do you ask me about their stuff? I don't know any of them nor do I know what they're going to do. Someone leaked a file from their 'promo system' (the eboot.bin they use to launch that old multiMAN version), I took a look at it, I saw what patches they use for 4.21 and implemented some of them in mM and added syscall36. As simple as that - that way nothing is hidden in 'their system/manager' and is available in the regular public mM version. I know for sure that their firmware uses hermes because I saw how the payload and stuff is loaded in that leaked eboot.bin, hence I mentioned it in mM's changelog.

I already posted what I think few pages back. In addition to that - I think it will be a huge mistake if they decide to sell dongles.

I added some additional checks to make mM recognize when it is running on peek/poke-enabled 4.21CFW. Then it adds syscall36 just like it does on 3.55, which means that games should work without patching.

When asked why update MM to a hypothetical 4.21 his reply was quite arrogantly: Because I can, no other reason.

Also from deank when asked why 4.21 CFW support was listed if not fully tested yet: Ah, just don't tell me what and where I should put.

Finally a few weeks later he partially comes clean, revealing what used to be open source code and making the following statement for those interested.

Its dean's work, he can sell HIS work and get remuneration for it. ITS HIS TIME, the question here is who is paying, because WE DIDN'T pay for his time.

I really think he is the one that enjoys the least his work, because the hundreds of hours he invests in coding don't give him time to get some gaming, sad but true. Thanks dean for what you could give us as long as you could, you deserve at least a couple bucks to get your testing equipment for free and THATS nothing compared with what you worked for. Imagine all those hours at a modest ($50USD) pero hour and you tell me if free equipment is worth it.

my 2 cents.

Yes, guys... Agree with everything that was said. If we could have one of this freakin dongles with stable CFW (like kmeaw), support for PSX, PS2, PSP isos, homebrew compatible, multiman mounted and TB payload for newer games... well... THEN I WOULD REALLY GET IT. LLOOOLL!!!

Oh, I forgot... And the dongle MUST talk with sexy lady voice. Damn!

I would like to hear directly from dean as well not just speculation... I have followed his MM program for a long time and loved the updates, then the updates just stopped coming, does that mean without the dongle their will be no more updates?

Sad, but understandable in the POV of Dean, I don't know his job, place of residence, if he has a family to provide for, or his living standards so yeah if you understand that he is a human being there is no reason to be angry with him, unless he publicly says screw everyone that supported him or others accrediting to his program.

In short I really don't want to buy a freakin dongle I spend enough money, MILKING COWS DOESN'T PAY FOR EVERYTHING.

There is no PSP support on the new update (4.2) It basically took away support from what I tested. I used the new Multiman (Cobra Edition) and I plugged in my PSP like it said I could... but nothing happens. Leading me to believe it has no support anymore.

It lied about allowing you to boot games from the PSP. Unless someone can confirm and tell me how the hell you do it. Because I just spent like 12 minutes trying to get it to work. And when I tested a PSP game off a usb.. it errored telling me to "install" the PSP launcher... again? I already have it installed but I get that error every time.

can't blame deank for that since there's even no or barely donors on his manager right now. Afaik, there are only 5 for every 100k downloaders/users of his manager.

anyway, if this is the only way to keep multiman alive, i don't even bother if it is ported to a commercial product.
