Hi I just make a debug app that use some syscalls to do a reset into PS2 Lpar like boot_ps2 does, it should work on dex 4.11 or 4.20 but in these fw there is ps2 netemu instead of softemu so i need someone with an original disc of playstation 2 inserted on bd-drive and launch this test app and see what happens.

I am on 4.11 DEX but i don't have any original disc from PS2... This is basically the same thing that boot_ps2 does on 3.55 but there is a new emu file on dex 4.11 or 4.20 introduced on 3.70 with the use of PS2 Classics on PSN... This is not brick-risk, thanks to anyone who help me with this. Greetings...





1st - Download the file
2nd - Copy the file PS2 Evo v1.0.pkg to the root of a USB drive formated in FAT32
3rd - Install the .pkg from *Install Package Files*
4th - Insert a original PS2 disk on the BD
5th - Run the app and enjoy

Hi apparently a few people are having trouble with multiman. I believe the proper way to do it is install multiman before you upgrade cfw. Some recommend using the latest Iris Manager. I hope this help.

Install stealth multiman & start from the standalone install pkg files,or you can start from app_home in case you want to delete install pkg files PKG but you have to restart the PS3 every time you want to load a game,this is only in app_home not in the standalone install pkg files pkg.

Interesting, sadly I have not gone that far when going online, i just use the stealth version of multiman, + psntools, and I have been pretty good for the last month+

I'm not to fussed being banned though as I have access to another I.D

It's more simple than you think it is.

Basically, what I want to make sure that I can play as 'stealthy' as possible when going online. You might know that you don't need the Multiman stand-alone app on your xmb, you can simply delete it but still be able to use Multiman by opening either 'install package files' or the /app_home/ps3_game/ direction.

So my problem is: When I have the stand-alone Multiman app on my xmb, I can use PSN Tool flawlessly. With that I mean choose a game in Multiman, start PSN tool, exit PSN tool and launch game.

Without the Multiman app on my xmb though I have a problem. I choose a game on Multiman, then start PSN tool and when I exit PSN tool my xmb fails to load and my PS3 boots in recovery mode saying I have to restart my PS3. And when the PS3 reboots I have to re-install Multiman as I can't open it from 'install package files' or /app_home/ps3_game/. The issue is kinda complicated.

Same with both 4.30.2 Rebug and Rogero 4.30 v2.05.

I have read over this a couple of times, and still dont understand the question lol

So after you use psntool for its needs, you then delete multiman? before playing the game?

My issue is quite complicated but I'm hoping someone will help me out. PSN tool v1.0 works for me as long as the Multiman app is on my xmb.

However when I delete Multiman from my xmb (So I can still start it from install package files or /app_home/ if necessary), the PSN tool suddenly doesn't work anymore in this way:

  • Launch PSN Tool
  • Spoofing MAC Address is no problem, PS3 restarts and shows a different MAC address.
  • Launch Multiman, choose a game from external hdd, PS3 goes back to xmb.
  • Launch PSN tool again and spoof Console ID, press [R1] and then [L1] to remove syscalls and check hdd status.
  • Now exiting PSN Tool will make you successfully go back to xmb and launch your game IF you have the separate Multiman app on your XMB.

However having MultiMAN only as install package files and /app_home/ results in the ps3 booting up in recovery mode saying 'ps3 system software cannot be run correctly'.
