58w 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

Please help !! I installed the latest version (full) of multiman, this went well but when loading the system freezes and shows a screen with a laughing face. When trying to remove this version aI end up with a corrupted icon in the list. I can't install an earlier version because system says that there is already the latest version installed.
How do I completely remove multiman and what can i do to get it working again. I'm on CFW 3.55.
To quote via tortuga-cove.com/hacking/31-ps3/6572-solar-v41-and-metro-mmcm-theme-released: I took a couple of days off from working on Solar and got bored quickly, so I made an mmCM theme called METRO, 100% compatible with the latest version 04.02.00, but I really don't have time to make themes, so I won't be making any more...
