MultiMAN v04.30.00 Changelog:

  • Added support for various 4.40CFWs
  • Added support for loading PS2 Classics (from /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO) (thanks flatz & ing.pereira)

multiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE (20130324) Includes:

  • multiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE CEX (20130324).pkg
  • multiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE DEX (20130324).pkg
  • multiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE STEALTH (20130324).zip
  • Showtime 04.03.100 [CEX].pkg
  • Showtime 04.03.100 [DEX].pkg

Also available online and in the WEB column for those who want to test PS2 Classics. What I added to mM is just a simple function to link the iso.bin.enc files to the placeholder app. Whatever it requires is not changed. I don't have any ps2 classics to test anything. mM already has a PS1+PS2 database of almost 4000 covers (already available in the FULL version and online), hence few lines to link the encrypted isos to the placeholders. The haters are barking at the wrong tree.

You need [Register or Login to view links] (PS2_Classics_Placeholder_R2.rar by CaptainCPS-X) installed and your ps2 classics in /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO as subfolders. It is also available for download in mM's WEB column.

If you don't have memory-cards, mM will create them for you under SAVEDATA subfolder in the game folder.

Use the following structure format:

/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game (simple naming format - no cover download)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game/ISO.BIN.ENC
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game/COVER.JPG (not mandatory, but if present will have higher priority than downloaded covers)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game/SAVEDATA/SCEVMC0.VME (mM will create it if missing)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game/SAVEDATA/SCEVMC1.VME (mM will create it if missing)

or even better, the recommended format:

/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003 (mM will use the gameID and will download the cover if available)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003/ISO.BIN.ENC
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003/COVER.JPG (not mandatory, but if present will have higher priority than downloaded cover)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003/SAVEDATA/SCEVMC0.VME (mM will create it if missing)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003/SAVEDATA/SCEVMC1.VME (mM will create it if missing)

Basically you only need the ISO.BIN.ENC and nothing else:


and mM will show "MyPS2Classic" disc icon in the RETRO column. If you name your folder with the game-id, mM will download the cover. If you put "COVER.JPG" next to the iso, mM will use it instead. That's it.

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.

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).

Below is an XMB Manager+ 0.22.004 (Mod) for COBRA 7.0 4.46 CFW from aldostools with details as follows:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (XMB Manager+ 0.22.011 Mod for COBRA 7.0 - Latest Version) / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

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

How to install:

1.) Install Cobra 7.0 implemented into 4.46 Rogero v1.00: [Register or Login to view links]
2.) Copy webftp_server.sprx (version 1.07) to the root of /dev_hdd0/ (Latest version is always here: deanbg.com/webftp_server.sprx)
3.) Copy the included boot_plugins.txt to the root of /dev_hdd0/
4.) Copy the included category_game.xml to /dev_blind/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/
5.) Install the included xmbmanplus_hdd.pkg
6.) Enjoy XMBM+ on COBRA 7.0!

Thanks to:

  • DeanK for the awesome webftp_server.sprx
  • COBRA's lead developer for the release of the unofficial Cobra 7.0
  • user for PRX LOADER
  • Team XMBM+: andreus (coding), bitsbubba (coding, themes), DeViL303 (coding, POC/WIP) ps3Hen (coding, 4.00 port), aldostools (coding), CloneD (themes), Berion (logos)
  • dreamcat4 for the suggested .xml method and exofreak for his POC release of launch games through XMB using webMAN.

UPDATE #1 (Nov. 7th - v0.22.005)

Changes in 0.22.005:

  • Added a new section with quick links to webMAN functions:
  • Refresh My Games
  • Games, Files,
  • Eject Disc,
  • Insert Disc.

UPDATE #2 (Nov. 7th - v0.22.006)

Changes in 0.22.006:

  • Added the PS VITA application utility and Online storage icons to Game Data Manager;
  • Added "Retail" (webMAN list) to Game Manager > By type > Games.
  • Also updated category_game.xml: moved XMBM+ icon between "Install Package Files" and "My Games".

UPDATE #3 (Nov. 2013 - v0.0.22.008)

  • Mod by aldostools

UPDATE #4 (Nov. 24th - v0.22.009)

  • Added a quick link to monitor PS3 temperature of CPU and RSX and to restart PS3 (requires webMAN 1.18).

Download: xmbextras_v0.22.009.rar‎ / xmbm_mod_for_COBRA7_v0.22.009.rar‎

UPDATE #5 (Dec. 9th - v0.22.011)

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 of XMBM+ (mod) includes the files & instructions to have webMAN 1.24 and XMBM+ running on 4.46 COBRA 7.0.

  • Added "All Devices" to Install Package Files option in REBUG's Package Manager, so it will search all package locations instead of individual locations (HDD, packages, standard location);
  • Updated category_game.xml (Replaced the standard Install Package Files with REBUG's Package Manager);
  • Include webMAN 1.24 and webMAN 1.24 for CCAPI.

Download: xmbextras_v0.22.011.rar / xmbm_mod_for_COBRA7_v0.22.011.rar‎ / xmbm v011_mod_for_COBRA7-ITA.pkg / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror)

I had promised him, and although a bit late here is the translation of the homebrew Aldo Vargas, who as we all know is arrived at version 0.22.011, adding the entry “All Devices” option to install Package Files in the Package Manager Team Rebug and changing some items on filecategory_game.xml.


  • Added “All Devices” in the Rebug Package Manager, now you can search all paths instead of one at a time.
  • Updated file category_game.xml (It was replaced the classic Install Package Files with Rebug Package Manager).
  • Added WebMan 1:24 and Webman 1.24 per CCAPI. *

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 ([Register or Login to view links])

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: [Register or Login to view links])

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

7.) Now open your PS3 browser set in Tools -> Confirmation on Browser Close -> “OFF” or when choosing a game in WebMan ([Register or Login to view links]) it will make you close browser each time.

8.)Turn of "Disc Auto Start" under System Settings. Disc Auto Start ([Register or Login to view links]) 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.

GenPS3ISO GUI 1.3 by aldostools

Download: genPS3ISO_GUI.rar‎ (Mirror: ps3tools.aldostools.org/genPS3ISO_GUI.rar)

Another quick GUI for the command line tool genPS3ISO by Cobra-USB. This tool let you create a proper ISO image from a PS3 game's folder.


  • Allows drag & drop
  • Run as Administrator to auto-register as a shell-extension for Explorer.
  • Right-click on any folder to make an ISO.

Example of ISO created: AUTOBOOT.ISO of Fan Control Utility 2.0 (ps3tools.aldostools.org/faniso.rar)

PSISO Tool GUI by aldostools

Download: psiso_tool_GUI.rar‎ (Mirror: ps3tools.aldostools.org/psiso_tool_GUI.rar)

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

Download: Fan Control Utility (ISO/No GUI) 2.01a (Mirror: ps3tools.aldostools.org/faniso.rar)

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

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

XMB Manager + Version 0.23.000 - Changes in 0.23.000: Added new "Network Folders" menu to webMAN tools.

This new option let you mount a shared folder on the PC as a local folder (/dev_bdvd). You must have running PS3 NET Server on the PC and server address configured on webMAN.

With this option you can play (supported) remote videos, music, pictures, and install PKG files stored on a remote PC (virtually in any place of the globe) directly from XMB. You can also play shared rom files, browse remote folders and more.

Download in link above or update directly on the PS3 from the About option in XMBM+ menu.

Credits: All this is possible thanks to Cobra7's integrated network features and to deank for the marvelous webMAN.

NOTE: WiFi networks can be too slow for certain operations. A wired network is highly recommended.

Below is a Simple NTFS ISO Mounter for Cobra 7.00 by CaptainCPS-X with details as follows:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (4.75 MB)

To quote: Simple NTFS ISO Mounter v1.01 (UPD)

A small update to properly support PSXISO, DVDISO and BDISO. As testing purpose I backed up my original FINAL FANTASY VII (PSX) as BIN/CUE with ImgBurn on Windows 8 x64, and as expected the game was mounted properly.

I backed up an Original DVD Movie (Karate Kid) as ISO, using once again ImgBurn for it, the results where great, the movie was available on the XMB -> Video section and I was able to watch it. Only test left is BDISO, but I guess it should be working fine


CHANGELOG: - v1.01 (November 4, 2013)

  • Fixed support for PSXISO, BDISO and DVDISO, now it should mount them correctly.

NOTE: You MUST Install BASE first v1.00 then UPD v1.01.


Simple NTFS ISO Mounter (for Cobra 7.0 / 4.46 CFW) (by CaptainCPS-X)

Simple NTFS ISO Mounter (by CaptainCPS-X, 2013)

This application will look for ISOs in your USB NTFS HDD and allow you to mount them on your PS3!

Directories scanned are:


Controls are:

[CROSS] - Select ISO / Game to Mount
[TRIANGLE] - Rescan NTFS drive

Enjoy! Merry Christmas! xD


This application will ONLY work on "Cobra 7.00 CFW (Mixed w/Rogero 4.46 v1.00)".

Do not connect more than one NTFS drive, it will only use one, plus I don't see the need of having many drives connected when you just want to mount one game.

Keep reading for more notes...


Thanks to "Eswald" for porting the NTFS library and "Cobra Dev" for improving it and releasing the Cobra 7.00 CFW along with source code.



  • Support for PS3IS0, PSXISO, BDISO and DVDISO directories scanning and listing.
  • Initial release.


This release is initial, so expect it to be very simple but functional. More improvements will eventually come, so stay tuned.

Running Iris Manager is causing issues with the mounting of ISOs, avoid running Iris Manager before booting Simple NTFS ISO Mounter. If you ran Iris Manager by accident, just restart your PS3.

PS2ISO is not supported, you must use the internal PS3 HDD and put your ISO(s) in "/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/".

NOTE: You MUST Install BASE first v1.00 then UPD v1.01.


Simple NTFS ISO Mounter v1.02 - Progress Report #2

Spent the day organizing the code and preparing it for my GitHub. And finally the first commit has been done and pushed: github.com/CaptainCPS/Simple_NTFS_ISO_Mounter

PS: I have been working on some other things not yet integrated to the main core, but later on I will do so and commit / push it.

Stay tuned for more updates! This isn't over yet LMAO. More technical information will be added to the Git Repo later on so devs know exactly how my application works. Offtopic: Time to sleep finally!!! just look at that screenshot time LMAO and whole night didn't sleep

Simple NTFS ISO Mounter v1.02 - Progress Report #3

Good news!, Just finished coding some new modules that will add the following features very soon to Simple NTFS ISO Mounter:

  • Parsing of PlayStation 1, 2 and 3 ISOs
  • Checks for validity of proper ISO9660 formats (MODE1/2048) (MODE2/2352)
  • [PS1 / PS2 / PS3] Root Directory record checking for main system files.
  • [PS1 / PS2] Locate SYSTEM.CNF data extent and parse it.
  • [PS3] Locate PS3_DISC.SFB data extent and parse it.
  • Title ID parsing from system files (Ex. BLUS-XXXXX / SLUS_XXX.XX)
  • Acquire Game titles for all PS1, PS2 and PS3 ISOs.
  • Patch PS3 ISOs created with different applications than GenPS3iso so they are valid and detectable by the PS3 console (They MUST be in ISO9660 / MODE1 / 2048 + Joliet format).

Note: New PlayStation 1 game ID / Title database was created by me (includes all US / EU / JP Titles / IDs). PS2 and PS3 databases where acquired from aldostools ps3tools directory.

Here you can see a log of my application doing some debug output, before I port it to PS3:

[Register or Login to view code]

More info and progress soon! SeeYa!

Finally from JonahUK: Simple bat file to scan and convert your games folder:

[Register or Login to view code]

Easy to use, just put the bat file and genps3iso.exe in your "GAMES" folder and it will take each game and output an iso (iso name will be the same as the folder name).

If you want to save the iso somewhere other than the GAMES folder, edit the last "%%I.iso" to include a path such as "C:\ISO\%%I.iso"
This is handy if you are converting from a USB drive formatted to FAT32 for example.

MultiMAN v4.50.04 CEX and DEX is now released with details below, as follows:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (80.84 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (42 MB)

To quote: Following the release of the unofficial Cobra 7.00, deank has also released a new version of the amazing multiMAN featuring support for it (and more!)

DeanK has just updated multiMAN. The new version 04.50.04 adds support for 4.50 DEX CFW, and also for the 4.46 Cobra/Rogero CFW.

Here's the official info:

  • multiMAN ver 04.50.04 BASE CEX (20131103).pkg
  • multiMAN ver 04.50.04 BASE DEX (20131103).pkg
  • ps3netsrv.zip

Update is now also available online within mM. To use network servers you must add them in mM/mmCM in Settings ("Network Servers") and have ps3netsrv running on your PC to share the drive/folder with your games/iso/videos/etc.


  • Added support for 4.50 DEX CFW
  • Added support for 4.46 Cobra/Rogero CFW
  • Added "Switch between mmCM and multiMAN" option in HOME column
  • Added support for loading network games in JB/FOLDER format using ps3netsrv
  • In Cobra/mmCM mode all functions are operational (tested)

multiman_04.50.02_base_cex_mod.pkg (linked above): A few weeks ago I had a look at what Hijam implemented in his 04.30.00 mod. It seems it was mostly just folder changes to avoid getting banned by HDD scans. So I then had a go on 04.50.02 and the result is the pkg above. I was gonna make a few changes as size bloats a bit (not a problem) but idk why I don't find time. A bit disappointing that mM is closed source, so any editing/modding is limited.

Changes are as follows: BLES80608 changed to NPEA00187 and # Main search folders:


So on your internal & external, change GAMES to KUTA

NOTE: NPEA00187 = BUZZ Quiz Player (PSN game) - don't install that game

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (1.35 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

  • Added support for Cobra7-Rogero firmware
  • Added support for 4.50DEX CFW

Package contains:

  • lastGAME9.pkg
  • lastGAME9_SS.pkg (SingStar Replacement)
  • lastGAME9_[COBRA].pkg
  • lastGAME9_SS_[COBRA].pkg (SingStar Replacement)

The COBRA version of lastGAME also supports "last-games" from network location, PS1, PS3, DVD, BLU-RAY ISOs, as well as games in JB/FOLDER format. The update is also available within multiMAN in the WEB column.
