52w ago - Following up on the previous revision, today PlayStation 3 developer deank has updated multiMAN to version 04.15.00 which now includes Remote Access functionality allowing you to link PS3 CEX and DEX consoles together alongside mmRAS (multiMAN Remote Access Service) by aldostools with details below.
multiMAN 04.15.00 Changelog: This is only an UPDATE version (you need 04.14.00/04.15.00 BASE or FULL installed).
Updated PC application "ps3netsrv" to support fast folder-data retrieval
Greatly improved loading of remote /net_host folders (up to 4096 entries in mmOS and 2048 in other modes)
Greatly improved loading of remote Retro ROMs folders with covers
Added support to access remote PS3 system in mmOS or in game modes via /net_host
You can access all data of a remote PS3 to view/play photo/music/video files, transfer files/folders (and load ISO games/movies PS3/PSX/DVD/BD if used with Cobra CFW)
Added option in "Settings" - "Connect to Another PS3" - it allows full remote control (screen/pad) of another PS3 running multiMAN 04.15.00 and later
Added option in "Settings" - "Remote Access Permissions" (Disable/Files/Screen/Full) to restrict remote connnections to your PS3
Added support for mmRAS - PC application by Aldo (aldostools) which allows remote access to your PS3 (screen/pad) while running multiMAN
Screenshot feature in multiMAN (START+R2) will now save screens as JPEG.
The key features of this release:
The improved PC ps3netsrv application allows much faster access speeds when retrieving data from folders in mmOS or when browsing photo/music/video/ROMs from remote /net_host. You can now browse a remote folder with roms+covers and it takes a fraction of the time it took before.
The Remote Access feature allows you to connect to another PS3 anywhere in the world (be it in the other room or across the country) and copy files/folders, play Retro ROMs, view photos and play music and video files (after caching)
The Remote Access Control (PS3) feature allows you to connect to another PS3 running multiMAN and view its screen and control it with your pad. It allows you to minimize the current session and work with your own PS3 (to transfer files to the remote PS3 for example) and then return to the other PS3.
The Remote Access Control (PC) feature via aldostools mmRAS client allows you to connect to your PS3 (or any other PS3 around the world running multiMAN) from your PC. You can change the encoding quality of the picture, take screenshots in JPG (PrintScreen button) and control the PS3 with your keyboard and mouse. Click the [?] button for more information of the keyboard mappings.
The option in "Settings" (Remote Access Permissions) allows you to configure the access to your PS3. You can completely "Disable" it, you can allow remote connections only to access your "Files", you can restrict it only to remote control "Screen" or allow "Full" access for files and screen control.
The Remote Access Control provides 960x540 resolution (it doesn't depend on the remote PS3 resolution). The best results/quality and fastest response is achieved when server PS3 is running in 1920x1080.
To be able to use these features you have to configure your remote peers in "Settings" -> "Network Servers".
Any configured /net_host can be used for file access (PC and PS3) and for remote control (PS3)
If you are connecting to a PC you must have ps3netsrv application running on the PC side
If you wish to restrict access to your PS3 - change the setting in "Remote Access Permissions"
If you wish to connect to another PS3 configured as /net_host - use the "Connect to Another PS3" function in "Settings"
While connected to another PS3 you can 'minimize' the connection and work with your own PS3 and then resume the remote control. You will see the live minimized remote screen in the lower corner. To switch between local/remote control use [START]+[SQUARE].
To terminate a connection to a remote PS3 use [START]+[CIRCLE]. All other buttons you press will be sent to the remote PS3.
MANY thanks to aldostools for creating the PC application to connect to a remote-control-enabled PS3.
From aldostools comes a quick tutorial, as follows:
0- Run PARAM.SFO Edit.exe as Administrator to associate .SFO/.SFX extensions. Close it.
1- Backup your save data folder to a USB storage device (/PS3/SAVEDATA) or download them to the PC from /dev_hdd/home/0000000x/savedata via FTP
2- Backup your savedata folder in a ZIP/RAR/7z (just in case you make a mistak and corrupt your saves)
3- Start the Bruteforce and browse to your local savedata folder
4- Browse to a savedata with your account id and "Use PARAM.SFO as template" (you can do this manually copying the PARAM.SFO as "template.sfo" into the folder of Bruteforce)
5- Browse to a savedata with a foreign account id.
6- If the game has a key in the database it will be displayed, otherwise you will need to bruteforce it double clicking on the game and providing the ELF of the game (EBOOT or another self)
7- Once you have the key for the savedata to be resigned, press "Update Account ID" to update the PARAM.SFO with the account id in the template.
8- Press "Patch SFO" if the game is copy protected (it says YES in the Protected column)
9- Select all the files from the PFD using Ctrl+A and press "Decrypt PFD"
10- Use "Update PFD (Partial)" or "Update PFD (Partial update without Game setting) to update the hashes in the PFD. If you have the disc_hash_key for the game, you can use "Updae PFD (Full)".
11- Once the PFD is updated, select all files usingCtrl+A and press "Encrypt PFD"
12- Press "Verify PFD" to check if everything is OK.
13- Copy the resigned savedata to a USB storage device (/PS3/SAVEDATA) or transfer them from the PC to /dev_hdd/home/0000000x/savedata via FTP
Finally, from M@tsumot0: nice job master, i waiting for update STEALH version.
Put report_data.txt to your root usb go to install package file (Rogero 4.30 v2.03) on "APP_HOME/PS3_GAME" and push start for update your multiman 04.14.XX STEALTH to 04.15.00 STEALTH.

The waiting is finally over and we are pleased to present the 1.8 release which fix issue from the last release.
Increase version number and recompiled 1.7 to avoid a compiler bug which caused MCU to crash
Fix crash when application finishes
Less strict IRD verification that caused valid IRD files to appear as invalid
Added support for IRD file format version 8
Added support for files bigger than 4GB in IRD generated iso
We have also updated the user manual to 1.8 to reflect the MCU version and change concerning creation of ISO's. Enjoy
Thanks a lot.. also an update from the Cobra Team:
Current status is that IRD support for genps3iso is finished and has been sent to webmaster and should be online in the next couple of days. This will go online with the fixed genps3extra for the more than 100 games in video category, and firmware 1.7 which increases stealth for IRD generated iso.
We are now currently handling ps1 disc support, but there is no ETA for the moment for that feature. The disc dumping bug is also being worked on in parallel. It will require an update to the FPGA images as the bug is in the FPGA so it is being handled by other members of the team. I do not have an estimate on when the fix will be available but I know it is currently being worked on.
i just created a whole mod pack... everything you need is inside! with easy to install zip files and a easy guide!!!
download contains these files... CFW, multiman, webman, system manager with fan utility, custom game tab with multiman, xmbm+ and my games, flag files for faster usb booting tools for pc (fan utility, retroxmb for ps2 psp and rom pkg, netsrv for nethosting) and a how to install txt file!
Also below is PS3WebTemp 1.0 (aldostools.org/temp/PS3WebTemp.rar) by aldostools, who states:
This is a small semi-transparent web window that stays always on top. It can connect to your PS3 console to monitor the CPU and RSX information. Requires webMAN 1.16 running on a 4.46 COBRA 7.0 compatible CFW. The plugin and instructions are included in the XMB Manager+ (mod).
This is my modified version of the XMB Manager+ originally released by Team XMBM+. It has some new or different features and a different order of the icons. This version XMBM+ (mod) includes the files & instructions to have webMAN 1.07 and XMBM+ running on 4.46 COBRA 7.0.
This is a fork of the official XMBM+ that I originally developed for personal use on 3.55 Kmeaw. Now I adapted the category_games.xml to work with webMAN + XMB Manager Plus on 4.46 COBRA 7.0

Autoboot Control Fan Utility for Cobra 7.00 Tutorial by atreyu187
Install this software, I am sure you can source this part without me. Cobra 4.46 7.00 Rogero Hybrid CFW, Mulitman 4.50.04 & Last Game [Cobra] to start.
Then you need to install XMB Manager+ 0.22.006 (mod) for COBRA 7.0 and here is the supplied install guide for this application slightly modified.
1.) Copy webftp_server.sprx (version 1.11) to the root of /dev_hdd0/ Latest version is always here: deanbg.com/webftp_server.sprx (I ran into troubles with the settings not working for me on this version so I have uploaded the first build of v1.1 here for you all if the latest doesn't work for you (http://www.mediafire.com/download/gpj8pwarn0xl8qs/webftp_server.sprx)
P.S. Settings are saved as /dev_hdd0/tmp/wmconfig.bin if you need to "start fresh" in case of errors. Just delete with XMBM+, Comgenie's Filemanager or mM.
2.) Copy the included boot_plugins.txt to the root of /dev_hdd0/
3.) Copy the included category_game.xml to /dev_blind/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/ (Or you can install this one to remove app_home & IPF: http://www.mediafire.com/?i9adczgif9hon0q)
4.) Install the included xmbmanplus_hdd.pkg
5.) Install update XMB Manager+ (mod) for COBRA 7.0 (v 0.22.006): aldostools.org/xmbextras.pkg
6.) Reboot your PS3 after install is all done to start fresh with your new FTP/Webserver working upon boot up
8.)Turn of "Disc Auto Start" under System Settings. Disc Auto Start (http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/discboot.html) on Settings > System Settings.
9.) FTP Control Fan Utility v2.00 AUTOBOOT.ISO to /dev_hdd0/PS3ISO My build has a nice new logo instead of the tired looking "official" logo I think suits the system better. Or if you don't like that aldos made one as well that can be found here (ps3tools.aldostools.org/faniso.rar) as well with the old logo.
10.) Install PSNinja v4 and open the app and press X on "Make Files Read Only" this way "Last Game" will stay as Control Fan Utility AUTOBOOT.ISO upon every boot. Or you can do this manually by FTP and going to /dev_hdd0/last_game.txt and right clicking on the file and go to properties. Then choose "Read Only" attribute with FTP client. This can also be done if you FTP txt file to HDD and right click, again go to properties and check "Read-Only" and then press "Apply" and FTP the file back over.
11.) This I am going to borrow from aldos as well as he is the one that helped me get mine setup and running.
1. Turn ON the Disc Auto Start on Settings > System Settings.
2. Go to My Games > webMAN Setup and select the devices to scan, mark all the settings in the 2nd section and at least 5 and three seconds in the 3rd and 4th sections. (I choose 0 for both as I don't use a USB drive, boot times increase dramatically so the lower the better for your "Auto Boot Times" which DeanK might give us in future updates to his fine app. It has seen more action this month then just about mM's existence and we thank him for that. It was two simple plugins that got combined)
3. Press Save on the browser and restart the PS3.
Every time that you start the PS3, the AUTOBOOT.ISO will be launched. All you have to do is press Triangle to exit.
Note about my AUTOBOOT.ISO file. Once you exit the app in "Payload" mode the LED will turn yellow allowing you to know the payload is in effect. If you choose any of the other "Modes" the LED will return to normal. I did this so one would know if in fact the settings in fact took place after exit as it is hard to tell sound wise.
Again if you do not like this option aldos made a Control Fan Utility AUTOBOOT.ISO as well that does not have the yellow LED indicator at all but in order for "Mode 2" settings to stay upon exit one must press "Start" button to set that mode to work upon exit.
And that is it folks you can boot your PS3, set your fan speed right away and have fun gaming knowing your precious PS3.5 is nice and cool to go along with all the neat new features Cobra has unleashed upon the CFW world.
From CaptainCPS-X: Try this one (psiso_tool_test_1.rar) and let me know if you still have the hanging problem:
I have created this quick GUI for the command line tool made by CaptainCPS-X that allows us to patch the PS3 ISO images that were not created with genPS3ISO or multiMAN, and make them to work on COBRA 7.0 CFW. Thanks to CaptainCPS-X for this useful tool.
Fan Control Utility (ISO/No GUI) 2.01a by aldostools
This is an unofficial version of Fan Control Utility by Estwald that auto-quits immediately to XMB after set the fan policy. Hold X for 10 seconds to enable the GUI. The settings will be saved in the internal HDD, if the included PKG is installed and dev_hdd0/game/CTRLFAN00/fan_speed.dat exists.
Note: The AUTOBOOT.ISO for COBRA 7 auto-quits. There are 2 PKG files: one has no GUI, the other always shows the GUI.
Credits: Thanks to Estwald for the PS3L1GHT environment and the open source project. Thanks to HABIB for the payloads for 4.46/4.50. This is my first compilation of an application for PS
