77w 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.

Download: multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #2) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #3) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #4) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #5) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #6) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #7) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #8) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #9)

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

MultiMAN v04.11.12 Base CEX and DEX (20121116) are now available from deank with the following changes and updates:

Download: multiMAN v04.11.12 Base CEX (20121116) (22.76 MB) / multiMAN v04.11.12 Base CEX (20121116) (Mirror) / multiMAN v04.11.12 Base CEX (20121116) (Mirror #2) / multiMAN v04.11.12 Base DEX (20121116) (25.77 MB) / multiMAN v04.11.12 Base DEX (20121116) (Mirror)

Changelog:

  • Fixed LV1 peek/poke for 4.21REX in DEX mode + DEX lv2_kernel
  • Added back IDPS display in "System Information"
  • Added preliminary support for 4.30CFW with LV1 peek/poke syscalls (sc 8/9) or lv1 mmap patch (hvsc 114)
    (if such CFW is released then direct-disc-access/PS1 disc backups should work)
  • Increased number of supported simultaneous FTP transfers to 8
  • FTP user/password can be anything
  • Added support for "Change BD-Movie Region" function for 4.30CFW
  • Updated Showtime to 04.01.224

I can add support in mM for any firmware (I only need lv1.self and lv2_kernel.self decrypted). The fact that no one took the time to add proper lv1/lv2 patches in a 4.30CFW is not my problem or issue as I'm happy with 4.21REX. AFAIK there is no 4.30CFW with the patches mM requires, although Rogero is working on one.

Ah, and something else... That stupid rumor that stuff must be signed with 3.55+ keys because 3.40 are blacklisted or something is just ... well stupid ... All mM versions are signed with 3.40 keys. I wonder how that same pkg installs and works on all firmwares since 3.41+dongle to 4.30.

Wish somebody could work out the PSP feature as that would be awesome to have on ANY CFW not just this dongle firmware.

its certainly interesting to me.

curious as to what features it can offer that multiman isn't already offering through rebug 4.21 rex.

Just found this on the Cobra site: 11 - 12 - 2012

Coming soon! In order to support Cobra USB users better Team Cobra will release in the next few weeks a custom 4.3x+ firmware...

Not sure if I'm the only one on the planet still on Cobra 3.55 but I thought it was worth a post.
