Simple File Manager v0.1 for PS3 JailBreak Arrives
After creating Simple AVCHD Manager - the first AVCHD manager for a jailbroken PS3 - some of the other programs I have been exploring had the requirement for a file selection screen in common, so i decided to create a simple file manager utilising a pointer like Multiman and added some other useful functions.
Download: PS3 Simple File Manager v0.1
As this is only version 0.1 it has a few areas that need cleaned up and only has some of the planned functionality implemented.
Any bugs, feature requests etc can be reported to me here at ps4news.com
While problems are not expected to exist the potential is there so any usage is entirely at your own risk.
Allows shortcuts to be defined in SFM_options.ini - named this way so multiple option files for different applications can be stored
in the same directory on a usb device.
Allows selection of multiple files for copy/move/delete.
Allows folder size to be calculated and displayed, along with number of files etc.
In Device list
X - open in left panel
O - open in right panel
In left/right panels
L1 - Page Up
L2 - Page Down
L3 - Add Shortcut to Device list
R1 - Get folder size
R2 - Select file/folder
R3 - Future - Rename function
X - Enter Directory
O - Up directory
/\ - Copy selected files/folders
 - Delete selected files/folders
SELECT - Toggle Controls
L3 - Future - Save shortcuts to ini file
R2 - Toggle Selection
/\ - Move selected files/folders
Planned to be implemented future in versions (time permitting on which of these get done as some will need investigation to
Better progress display when copying multiple files
Play media files
alternative visualisations for audio playback
Rename/Create Directory and other standard file manager functions
Display text files
Edit text files
User configuration in INI file of colour scheme
Ability to display/copy contents of Archives
Allow to be called in single panel mode by other programs and return the selected file/folder to the calling program
Other functions that are requested will be considered
Apologies for the rubbish screenshots will try to get better ones for the next release.

Good work, this reminds me the uLaunchELF, PS2 scene days.

I've been looking EVERYWHERE for this, thanks

Nicely done. It will be useful having a larger view unlike the current file manager I'm using. I presume this can detect anything attached to the PS3 unlike the game managers? That's the main reason I still need file managers, Gaia Manager cannot detect my storage chips, only USB sticks & hard disks.

Great app, nice interface, thanks to Dev, keep the good work!

Here is my implementation for the OSK (on-screen-keyboard). I hope it will help you to implement CREATE NEW FOLDER and RENAME functions. Comgenie never released info about the OSK and no one tried to post how to use it, so I gave it a try.
Also I added the option to initialize the TEXT ENTRY before opening the dialog, so RENAME is easier now.
I hope this will be useful:

For some reason the OSK won't load/show when compiled with SDK 1.9, but works just fine with 3.40.

Yeah I really needed such a tool like this since comgenie's file manager seems to be discontinued. I'm now saving the gap using multiman, but I'll definitely give it a try to your tool.
And I agree, something like uLaunchElf for ps2 in ps3 would be such a great and useful tool. Maybe it'd be clearer for user if you show a menu when pressing R1 with all the basic file operations which can be accessed simply by highlighting them and pressing X, like uLE used to work. So you don't have to worry if u press the wrong pad button lol.
Thank you for your work.

thanks for your comments guys, I had never seen uLE prior to searching for it after your comment, I can see how similar this looks to it.
Deanrr, thanks for the section of code, i will have a look at getting it working under 1.9, it should be possible due to the sample with the sdk working under 1.9

Probably there is something I missed in the initialization - I don't know. It should be other way around - to work with 1.9 and not with 3.4, but there we are. I'll take a look at the samples to find what I did wrong, but if you find it first - let me know
And launchELF is one of the best apps I used constantly for the last 5 years with my PS2!
I see I forgot the container size up there:

#zoned: Sorry for multiple posting... Just as I pasted the code above I decided to change the memory container to 5MB and it now works with SDK 1.9. I think I read somewhere that 2MB is enough for the current layout, but it seems not to be the case.
Contact me if I can be of any help.
