Below are the changes, as follows:

v04.10.00

  • Added full support for 4.21REX (REBUG) firmware
  • Added support for 4.21REX in DEX full mode (DEX flash + DEX lv2 kernel)
  • Added support for PS1 disc backups for 4.21REX CFW in DEX/DEX mode
  • Added support for direct-disc-access for 4.21REX CFW in DEX/DEX mode (data CD/DVD/BD discs)
  • Added support for flashing 256MB NAND *.EID0.NANDBIN backups
  • Users with broken BD drives can use 4.21REX in DEX mode with fake BDEMU stick/image for 100% game compatibility

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you're using DEX mode in 4.21REX, use this CEX version of mM (do not install the reguar DEX mM which is only for official dex firmwares).

This package also includes:

  • Rebug Toolbox 02.00.00
  • c2d + openssl
  • DUMMY_BDEMU.rar

About DUMMY_BDEMU:

It is to help users with broken BD-ROM drives (which have a working logic board and married to the PS3). A lot of games have issues when started from /app_home or using "Direct Boot", that's why this is the BEST solution for such users. You will have to be on 4.21CFW REBUG (REX) with DEX Target ID flash and DEX LV2 Kernel (full DEX MODE).

From the ReadMe file: If you do not want to waste a whole USB HDD you can use a small 512MB USB STICK to emulate your broken BD-ROM.

Needed:

  • PC and PS3
  • USB stick/drive (512MB minimum size)
  • Disc Image Generator Software (ps3gen)
  • PLAYSTATION3.iso Dummy BDEMU image
  • 4.21CFW REBUG (REX) operating in DEX mode with DEX lv2_kernel (FULL DEX MODE)
  • Connect a USB HDD to be used for BDEMU
  • Start "Disc Image Generator for Playstation3" (ps3gen)
  • Click "Show" button in the top right-hand corner
  • Click "Select File..." button
  • Locate and select "PLAYSTATION3.iso" provided in this archive
  • Click "Save / Emu ..." button
  • Select "Write Image to BD Emulator HDD"
  • Select your BDEMU USB HDD
  • Pick a slot from the list and click "Write Image"

On your PS3 with 4.21REX CFW and multiMAN 04.10.00 installed:

  • Install "Rebug Toolbox 02.00.00" and launch it
  • In SELECTOR: REBUG MODE / DEBUG XMB / DEBUG MENU
  • In DEX/CEX: Flash your DEX EID0 NOR/NAND file (DEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN or DEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN file on /dev_usb000 stick)
  • Quit Toolbox and reboot your PS3
  • In XMB "Settings" go to "Debug Settings" and set "Blu-ray Disc Access" option to "BD Emulator (USB)"
  • Turn off your PS3
  • Connect the BDEMU USB HDD drive/stick to the right-most port (/dev_usb000) - the port closest to the BD-ROM drive
  • Turn on your PS3
  • You should see "PLAYSTATION(R)3" Game Disc mounted in XMB Game column
  • Start multiMAN 04.10.00+, load a game from internal HDD or external USB HDD connected to another port. Do not unplug the BDEMU USB drive.
  • Start your game from the Disc Icon in XMB.

Done. In the pictures below you can see how it looks when you boot your PS3 with the dummy disc game, if you start it and if you mount a game with mM (Assassin's Creed III used as example) and check XMB

You need to extract the .ISO file in the .RAR download and then move it to your internal HDD (/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO) using a file manager or FTP program. Then it should show up in the "Retro" column on multiMAN and you can play it. (You need the Cobra USB to use it on your PS3).

This is great from Slim PS3 and Cobra USB owners since most PS2 games will now work flawlessly on it.

For those with the Cobra USB dongle, coveman has made available an Open PS2 Loader ISO File via tortuga-cove.com/hacking/31-ps3/2611-open-ps2-loader-iso-file.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (1.27 MB)

To quote: I created an "Open PS2 Loader" ISO file, so you can just load it from Cobra Manager or multiMAN.

Just extract the .rar and transfer it to your internal HDD to /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO

  • You don't need SWAP MAGIC
  • You don't need any optical disc at all in your PS3
  • Works on PS3 non-BC (tested on my SLIM) (CobraUSB required)

I included the cover so you can either put it in /covers_retro/psx/SLES_806.08_COV.JPG or rename it to "Open PS2 Loader.jpg" and put it along side the ISO in PS2ISO folder.

You mean Rename the MP3 songs From Techno.MP3 to SOUND.BIN will do or must follow the MP3 file we choose - Techno.MP3 to Techno.BIN ? I confuse over here..

Mostly if you Rename a MP3 file to SOUND.BIN it will should an error. -

If you change a filename extension, the file may become unusable. Are you sure you want continue ?

This is just the way multiman reads its music for the theme. I was trying to answer the question above my post. multiman looks for a sound.bin file. it must be a .mp3 file renamed to .bin.

You are right , under normal circumstances it would make the file unreadable but not in this case. .bin is used for lots of things like firmware updates for dvd drives etc, its basically just raw sequential data in a .bin file.

so guys with this you can play the newest games without the dongle ??
NO. Simple as that!
