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.

I have the latest Multiman and I cannot see all my titles on my internal HD. I have two folders in dev_hdd0: game and games
I have a lot of titles in game, but they are not showing up anymore. I have a few titles in the games folder, and those seem to be the one showing.

If I install a pkg file from XMB, it installs in in the game folder and I cannot see it in MultiMan.

Can someone advise how to control this and what is the proper way to handle this?

Below is multiMAN ver 04.13.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg from deank which includes a fix for Hermes payload for Rogero 4.30 CFW v2 with the changelog, as follows:

  • Fixed issue with Hermes payload on 4.30CEX Rogero ver 2.00
  • 4+GB split files caching from USB and "Ext. Game Data" game option now work
  • Added standalone application "* Install Package Files"
  • RELOAD.SELF from the application can be used in other homebrew tools to install PKG files via the bubble-method
  • Install Package Files app works on all firmwares

About Install Package Files.pkg: This is a small handy tool for installing PKG files via the "bubble"/PSN method. It may be handy for Rogero 4.30CFW ver. 2.00 users. Rogero is preparing a firmware version which will have it 'build-in' in /dev_flash so you won't need multiMAN and you can't break/delete it, since it will appear in [/app_home] when you boot the PS3 and will come preinstalled.

It comes with background running FTP server and /dev_blind mounted (for write access to /dev_flash). stDISC and gameDATA apps will be available later for Rogero 4.30CFW v2.

From deank: In the next update the usb.cfg will not be needed and users should be able to connect any NTFS drive for transferring files and folder. Also there will be an option to overcome the USB port problem on 4.xx CFWs

Also, here is the latest pack of my apps all working on 4.21REBUG/4.30ROGERO v2 CFWs:

  • bdRESET4
  • gameDATA4
  • lastGAME4
  • stDISC3
  • installPKG

p.s. The domain for the update server for mM expired on November 23rd and is not renewed and none of the online features of mM will work. (It is now back online)

Finally, from CaptainCPS-X: [Release] bdRESET4, gameDATA4, lastGAME4, stDISC3 & installPKG (Nov 26, 2012)

Hiyas everyone , deank has released some nice information regarding the next multiMAN version and he released an update of his PS3 applications (bdReset4, gameDATA4, lastGAME4, stDISC3 and installPKG). I made 2 mirrors of the original release (above) just in case.

He also mentioned that multiMAN's update server domain has expired on November 23rd and that is why multiMAN cannot establish a connection to check for updates, or any of the online features.

Today deank has updated multiMAN to v04.12.00 for both CEX and DEX with the changes outlined below, as follows:

  • Added full support for Rogero 4.30CFW Version 2.00
  • LV1 peek/poke support
  • PS1 disc backups support
  • Direct Disc Access support
  • Added new function in "Home" column - "* Install Package Files"
  • Added new option in "Settings" - "Install Package Files Method"
  • User can pick from either "Standard" or "PSN Style (bubble)" modes
  • Bubble mode shows installable packages as PSN downloaded content in Game column (or under Rebug's Package Manager/PSN Content)
  • To select a package file (*.pkg):
  • Use [* Install Package Files] option in Home column or double click on a pkg file in mmOS/File Manager (when "bubble" method is used the PS3 will reboot)
  • Fixed copying of AVCHD/Blu-ray movie backups from Video column

NOTE: You will need this version installed BEFORE upgrading to Rogero 4.30 v2 as the firmware DOES NOT have a "* Install Package Files" XMB entry like the other CFWs.

If you forgot to install latest mM on Rogero 4.30CFW v2.00 you can still install it by downloading this ZIP file. Put it on a USB stick and double-click/install it from mmOS and then REBOOT your PS3 and install latest mM from the bubble/PSN icon.

Update: Fixed version not to scan USB subfolders for PKG files. Download the multiMAN ver 04.12.00a BASE CEX (20121120) or multiMAN ver 04.12.00a BASE DEX (20121120) version above for this modified version of the original 20121120 release.

You have to install MultiMAN 4.11.13 CEX instead of the DEX one, then if this solve your problem go into Recovery Mode and select
Rebuilt Database (if possible, backup all of your data before using that feature)
