ahah, update asap ! dongle-less ps3 ftw !
Agree, sk group, update your PS3, everything is working fine on my console, using the latest multiMAN, games working discless, PSN and minis working fine.
I got this running after using the program provided; I had previously tried the command line version suggested in the original instructions, yet to no avail.
I reformated and BAM! I said BAM... as in I'm running Naughty Bear without the disc off my internal HDD type of WTF BAM...
I live in Japan. Going to go and buy a 750GB 2.5 HDD tomorrow and fill it with ripped games. I want to say thank you so much for the detailed instructions and to everyone who made this hack public; it's been 5 years coming but we got there guys!!!!
I would just like to confirm for all of you questions, I have an original CECHA 60GB Fat PS3. I used to run Hermesv4b PAYLOAD with 3.50 Spoof via 5g ipod/Rockbox. This version is also a 256MB NAND version.
I updated from OFW 3.41 => OFW 3.55 via USB Drive, and in the XMB. I then HAD TO boot into Recovery Mode. Once in recovery Mode, I installed KMEAW CFW 3.55. After this I installed 3.55 Multiman, and then LV2.pkg.
I restarted my PS3 then, and ran the LV2 patcher, and pressed X (quits back to XMB).
I was then able to Launch Multiman (latest version, signed for 3.55) My old versions of Comgenies File Manager, OBM, Gaia, Cracked PSN Games (for 3.41) no longer would launch, so I simply deleted them. Any 3.55 package I install from this point should work.
I successfully Launched GT5 (after changing my modded EBOOT.bin from the 3.41 compatible one back to the original one compiled for 3.50+) I successfully Launched several other games, both diskless and with a disk in.
Call of Duty: Black Ops would not launch. There is a simple reason for this though. I have modified files I had after backing it up to make it compatible with 3.41 When I get home from work today I plan on deleting it, and backing it up, then it should run like normal.
Also GT5 updated to the latest patch, installed, and ran afterwards. I was also able to connect to PSN while in GT5 and talk to my friends.
One thing it seems everyone is doing is trying to boot from Multiman directly. When it asks you to boot without exiting to the XMB, say NO. Mount the Disk to PS3_Home/DiskImage just like you used to with OBM and Gaia back in the day, and launch it yourself from the XMB.
It should all work perfectly, I've tested it on my own console, its an old model with 256MB NAND (CECHA-FAT60GB). I have not tested blu-ray movies on it afterwards however. That is the only thing I have left to do.
the cfw is working fine her with different games, but need a unmodded gt5 eboot.. to try this game... where can i find one?
then the problem what i have is unique, seems everyone else can play everything.
working perfectly on my side also, it's not a pain to start my PS3 anymore... love it
lol, that's true, turn it on, load a homebrew and then let the fun begin!
NO WAY! My CECHC04 FAT60gb EU don't start any backup. I do the samethings you do.. but no way!
I try and retry with naruto 2.
lol i need a technician to fix some power/telephone sockets in my house. (or a long network cable, which is merely a patch and prob won't even work)
otherwise updating will be useless - no psn
