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.

Today MultiMAN v04.06.02 was released with the addition of a Software CPU / GPU Temperature Sensor for those interested by deank with some mods by 3141card, Mysis and haz367 (via ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Thermal) below. multiMAN 04.06.02 now supports Farenheit (in addition to Celsius), simply use L2+R2 on startup of multiMAN to enter in Debug Mode, and update again.

multiMAN 04.06.02 Changelog:

  • Added option in "Settings" - "Show Temperature Data" in Clock area (Disable/Enable/Auto) (thanks to Mysis and 3141card_)





From condorstrike: syscall:

sys_game_get_temperature int sys_game_get_temperature(0/1,uint32_t *temperature)
HV System Manager access - ServiceID 13 (TEMPERATURE)

This syscall is always being used by the PS3, so if it overheats it then just sends a syscall 379 and the PS3 will shut off.

Hey guys,

I am a straight newbie at all this stuff. I just got going a few days ago, but the more I learn the more I confuse myself.

So I had bought a ps3 with a dongle that stop working (seach my name for previous post), so I upgraded to cfw 3.55 and loaded multiman.

My Question is... Now that everything loaded, why is it that within multiman I get various errors like either the black screen, trophy registration or just a return to the XMB menu, but if I click on the disc icon the games work (not all, but the majority).

I've been trying to experiment with games that were already on the box, to loading my own games, and tested downloads with random results.

I've checked the internal and direct boot buttons with the permissions and test button and on random games I would get success within multiman, but the majority fail.

If anyone has any insight, I would love to hear it. Would I solve all these problems if I upgrade to 4.06? What am I doing wrong. I've been going through the forums and I've seen stuff like missing trophy folders, individual standalone permission apps, but it's all over my head.

Thank you for reading my post in advance....

Newbie Rob
