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.

Added support for lastGAME 8.0 [SingStar]
mM will display the IDPS from NOR/NAND (EID0) and from LV2 memory (spoofed/real) in "System Information"
Fixed lastGAME support for external/usb games with bd-mirror setting
If you use lastGAME 8.0 [SingStar] version (available also in the WEB column of multiMAN) you can take advantage of REMOVING the Singstar app from your ps3 and also have quick access to the last game you loaded with multiMAN.
lastGAME 8.0 support bd-mirror settings, so it is 100% compatible with all games that multiMAN supports. multiMAN (standard/stealth) is required to be installed to use bd-mirror with lastGAME 8.0.
Trying to play Beyond two souls now and get the error of This game requires 4.46 firmware version. Do you want to change it to your current 4.40 version.
Note: the operation will fix 80010009 errors for 4.20-4.31 FW games/updates if files are encrypted with 4.20/0x1c or lower key revision.
So is it safe to say yes when this message comes up and i should be able to play the game on rogero 4.41?
Also I need exact instructions on how to update to Rogero cfw to 4.46 if i must and how to install multiman and react psn. Does rogero 4.46 firmware work with multiman 4.40 or do i need to update multiman as well? Also is react psn to install any games that come as package files and dlc content?
Someone else did this all for me and i am very nervous of bricking my system not knowing the exact steps to install the new rogero, multiman and react psn. Also would I need to install rogero cfw 4.46 first and than the new multiman?
Today Gary Wayne Bowser (aka GaryOPA) and Max Louarn's new Cobra pitchman magneto released the official Cobra USB source code and updated Cobra.db database with the same old song and dance below, as follows:
A few days ago, STLcardsWS sent us a request, asking if we could release the source code of the Cobra USB dongle.
Today, we are fulfilling this request with a release of the full source code. We are releasing the entire source code under the GPL license.
You will find an overview.txt file which explains the content of each directory, and a readme.txt file in the cobralib subdirectory which explains its API and how to use it.
The source code is massive, and represents countless hours of work, containing 33,346 lines of C code, 5,981 lines of C++ code, 2,728 lines of assembly code and 35,530 lines in header files. We are sure that you can make good use of it, in part or in whole, within the community.
We hope that this release will be useful to the PS3 scene as a whole and that some of our exclusive features can be ported to the new and free custom firmwares.
As for all those haters out there who found the announcement of this effort as a new pretext to show your hate towards us, let it be known that this is not a PR stunt as you seem to think, this idea came from STLcardsWS, writer for psx-scene and dashhacks, who sent his request to us, and we accepted it.
We have no obligation to release the source, and if you don't want or like it, then simply don't download it. We are saddened to see people still finding ways to complain no matter what we decide to do. Even if it is for the scene that we do it. It is truly sad to see some people unable to show any other emotions than hate and ungratefulness.
Here is an update to the cobra.db database. It (cobra.db and supported games in CSV format) will be made available on the Web site shortly.
I cannot seem to be able to install 4.50 Base... I mean it installed but when I run it, it says the installation was incomplete... install the BASE or FULL, what did i miss? I thought I installed the Base from the link above. Please help!
multiMAN ver 04.50.00 BASE CEX (20131003).pkg
multiMAN ver 04.50.00 BASE DEX (20131003).pkg
multiMAN ver 04.50.00 STEALTH (20131003).zip
Showtime 04.03.536 [CEX].pkg
Showtime 04.03.536 [DEX].pkg
Added support for 4.50CFW
PS1/PS2/PS3 games, BD-MIRROR INT/EXT, BD-MOVIE REGION CHANGE/DYNAREC SUPPORT
Disc-less mode: Icon changed from BD disc to "folder icon"
Update is available online within multiMAN and in web column. Tested on FAT 80GB PAL PS3... all good.
Here are all mmTOOLS updated to support 4.46DEX and 4.50CFW (CEX):
All tools are also compatible with (Cex/Dex) CFWs 3.55C/D, 4.21C/D, 4.30C/D, 4.31C, 4.40C, 4.41C, 4.46C/D and 4.50C.
Available also in mM's WEB column.
lastGAME now support BD-MIRROR option (internal/external).
lastGAME 8.0 [SINGSTAR replacement] requires updated multiMAN. mM will look for lastGAME-SS and if found it will use it. I find it very convenient, because the "Load Last Title" icon is always on top, next to the BD disc icon.
And the updated multiMAN (you need it only if you plan to use lastGAME [SingStar replacement]):
