For those curious, Rogero PS3 Open Backup Manager v6.2 removes the Hermes Patch code to comply with his v3 Payload.
To quote, roughly translated: Rogero offers a new version of its manager in V6.1 qui is based on the Open Manager, like any other kind of applications you can copy your originals on your storage media inside and outside, start your backup.
This game managers display a wallpaper of your games when you pass it. It will be noted on the patch manager Hermes are disabled by default and they only become active when using payload supporting Peek / Poke commands (PSGroove v1.1, v1.0 Hermes ...) in order to avoid compatibility problems with the first payload. You can also enable / disable "live load" with L3.
You can find both versions in the archive, a backup, replacing the default manager (with ID LAUN12345) and another using the ID LAUN12350.
