29w ago - Following up on the Rebug 3.55.3 / 4.21.1 PS3 CFW REX Editions, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer deank has updated multiMAN to v04.10.00 which includes PS3 Rebug (REX) support alongside the changes outlined below.
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
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.
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

Just updated my cobra to v6 and the firmware along with it. Went to update mmcm and it said that it couldn't contact the update server. It says in system info that it's 04.06.02.
I wouldn't care so much except that it also can't seem to connect to whatever server is needed to download game updates like it used to. Anyway, I got the 4.40.00 base cex pkg file and installed it.
Started mmcm again and it asked me the 3 questions and loaded the default theme. I went to system information and it still says 04.06.02 despite the xmb saying it's 4.40.00. It also still won't connect to any servers.
No there is nothing wrong with my network, I connected the ps3 a web site just fine and can ftp to and from it. What's going on here?
try to re-enable bd, but still it didn't working ? it said 'BD-ROM emulator couldn't start' ??
Update: it was working, I read all the information about 4.41 CFW and also information about MultiMan 4.40 very carefully , then I realized I miss one step as recommendation to make it working with MM 4.40, there was missing one step 4.41.1 Lite CFW.
so, I tried to install 4.41.1 Lite again after backup then install 4.41.2 Lite and then install MM 4.40 again, the BDrom working perfectly without re-enable it.
To quote: Dean has come through and updated multiMAN to version 4.40.00. This quick update makes it compatible with REBUG's released 4.41 LITE CFW As well as any future 4.41 CFW's that are eventually released.
Added support for 4.41 CFW
All specific features (like BD Movie region Change, BD-Mirror, DYNAREC, PS1 BIN+ISO backups, PS2 Classics, discless, etc) work.
multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE (20130502).zip (104.59 MB) Includes:
multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE CEX (20130502).pkg (37 MB)
multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE DEX (20130502).pkg (32 MB)
multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE STEALTH (20130502).zip (35 MB)
Note: If you ran multiMAN on 4.41 before this update, you will need to re-enable the BD-ROM emulator (bottom option in settings) and restart multiMAN for it to work.
Note 2: lastGAME, gameDATA and stDISC won't work. bdRESET should still work. The function in mM for ext.game data works. If you have gameDATA installed you can switch back to HDD mode.
Update: Dean has compiled a new mM compatible version of Showtime. Showtime 04.03.211 [CEX] for multiMAN: Replace it (via FTP or mmOS) in /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/sys/:
Update 2: multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE CEX (20130503).pkg is also now available above with the following additions:
Updated Showtime for mM to 04.03.211
Updated PS1 Emulator (ps1_emu.self) to 4.41 (it will be used on 4.40 and 4.41 CFWs)
Updated PS1_NET Emulator (ps1_netemu.self) to 4.41 (it will be used on 4.40 and 4.41 CFWs)
Now mM will use ps1_emu/ps1_netemu from 4.41OFW (patched of course) when launching PS1 ISO/BIN+CUE backups if your PS3 is running 4.40CFW/4.41CFW. I didn't change the mM version, but if you wish better PS1 backups compatibility and newer Showtime - update to this BASE version.
You can install this version either from scratch or update any installed mM version.
Finally, mMTools has also been updated for PS3 4.41 CFW with details below, as follows:
