  • fixed payload mode
  • fixed bugs that led consoles with cfw cobra in recovery mode
  • full compatibility with all cfw

Gamesonic Manger v 1.25

Hi guys, here I am again with a new relase of gamesonic manager this time in version 1.25. this new version is definitely the best I've ever developed from all aspects.


  • Fixed support for CFW DEX and 4.46 4.41.
  • Added a tools to create and extract the ISO.
  • In Archive Manager now supports all ISO (FAT32/NTFS/EXTx) and finds all extensions mkv, avi, mp4, ogm, mpg and media files to make them start with "Showtime".
  • Adding an exception in archive management to detect if an ISO is launched from a folder "BDISO", and if it is started by a "folder" is taken as BDISO Bluray Video.
  • Fixed several bugs like filenames too long in Archive Manager and have added other small details and optimizations for example (now if it detects a device with NTFS partitions/EXTx the icon changes color throughout the waiting time prior to installation).
  • Increased speed and stability of the manager.
  • In cobra cfw just get discless patched files and install the game in the BDVD mode and will start without problems.(For this CFW are not enabled the discless locale payload as it needs them)
  • Full discless for each cfw.(further files for patched cfw 4.53 to support some games that gave black screen)
  • Put new soundtracks to manager just to make it more original.
  • NTFS support for each CFW (in testing phase)
  • Completely Stealth for online play.

Thank you: Estwald, Rancid-o, Aldo Vargas, Habib, franzes, Pullecalo. Guys I repeat that the source code will be released when there will be the release of ode version, that I think will take a while to arrive anyway I hope you enjoy my work.

Awesome! Can't wait until I'm able to download and try this out. I haven't really been active in the PlayStation community in a long time but now I've finished school and Summer break is here, I hope to spend many days living on my PS3.

I couldn't make it work. I got error 80010009 with Ferrox 4.75 but then I read in the Ferrox thread that just installing Stealth_Mamba_Loader.pkg with the guide above:

For now launching multiMAN (which would be MMCM) we should be able to start games PS3 (also ISO) thanks to the Payload Mamba, and MM works fine now.

Why there is no multiman version for 4.75? I will never upgrade the CFW again without a matching MM version

Following up on the previous revisions, today Italian PlayStation 3 developer Orion updated their PS3 Game Backup Manager to GameSonic Manager Stealth followed by v3.70 and v3.71 with the changes detailed below.

Download: Gamesonic Manager Stealth.rar (10.9 MB) / Gamesonic-Manager-master.pkg (With 4.75 CFW CEX Support - 13.71 MB) / Gamesonic Manager v3.70 / Gamesonic Manager v3.71 / Gamesonic Manager Source Code

To quote, roughly translated: Some thought that I would not have supported the release of stealth Gamesonic Manager, but it is not so, why do not I proceeded to update the Stealth Replacement or Vidzone Replacement is simple:

They were not true app stealth as they continued to save files in the internal HDD and sony Readily could find them, but not anymore.

Thanks to the brilliant idea of ​​the developer haxxxen (you can see here) and mamba autoloader Developer NZV I realized that this new version of stealth start, through a modified version of me payload mamba, voice app_home / PS3_GAME, as did the toolbox of Rogero, and saves all the configuration file on a USB device connected to the PS3 (/ dev_usb000 /) leaving the XMB clean.

CAUTION: This method only works for now on CFW retail (non-Cobra), the Cobra CFW it would take a change in the file stage2.bin which entails considerable risks for me that I have a flasher.


  • Copy the folder "Manager" in a FAT32 USB device (The one you use for games goes benessimo)
  • Copy the file in the same device Stealth_Mamba_Loader.pkg
  • Connect the device to the USB port closer to the reader (/ dev_usb000 /)
  • Now install the file from Stealth_Mamba_Loader.pkg Install PKG
  • Start it by holding down X until you hear a beep
  • Upon reboot, uninstall the Mamba Loader
  • Bring the item app_home / PS3_GAME / of your XMB and you will see the item Gamesonic Manager - Stealth
  • Press X and will start Gamesonic Manager ready to install your games


  • Team Cobra for the release of the source code patch cobra
  • Estwald for Iris Manager and payloads Mamba
  • Nzv for Mamba Autoloader
  • Haxxxen for the brilliant idea of ​​user patches cobra / payload mamba to mount a directory as qualsisi app_home

Update: PlayStation 3 developer Orion has now made available (via an app_home/PS3_GAME App Loader Plugin with details below, roughly translated:

I make a little plugin for cobra CFW that can redirect app_home to any folder. For now the directory is /dev_usb000/Homebrew

To launch the app is required to resign his EBOOT.BIN with these flags (below).

App_home/PS3_GAME App Loader Plugin by Orion

Download: app_loader_plugin.rar (22 KB)

As you know yesterday I released a special version of Gamesonic Manager that making use of a function of payload mamba was initiated through a USB key, the folder of your app_home XMB.

Yesterday I thought I would not be able to bring this function on Cobra CFW but this morning I had a brilliant idea: to create a plugin that would allow this function without changing stage2... and that's what I did.

This form of loading the app does not work on the last CFW Rebug, since he redirection to app_home disabled, and other CFW if you make use of Webman MOD (if you use the normal Webman everything works well), perhaps even Webman MOD uses of app_home.

The app, extracted from their respective PKG, to be launched should be put in a FAT32 USB device, which will then be connected to the door closest to the reader, in a folder called PS3_GAME in turn inside a folder called Homebrew and should have the EBOOT.BIN resigned with these keys:

These keys are good for all apps created with the PSDK3V2. Installation is the same as that of all plugins.

I have updated plugin, same link, for a best compatibility with other homebrew!

From haxxxen: i was working further with rogero's payload and made some minor changes to make it more dynamic

I have moved the payload to lower region in lv2 to avoid debug strings to be overwritten. i have patched it beyond peek and poke payload (sc 6-10), which makes it also easier to port to other firmwares. this way only 4 values/offsets have to be modified and updated.

Patches for 4.21 cex/dex done with webman:

Quickport to 4.75 cex (not verified working):

To port it to other fws, you can use following patterns:

I have used dev_flash/rebug/packages on webman. This can be changed as well, but the payload has to be updated too.

Gamesonic Manager v3.70 / Gamesonic Manager v3.71 (via

After the release of the payload and 4.75 DEX files cobra next CFW 4.75 REX Rebug I integrated the new payload and payload mamba for the new CFW also Gamesonic Manager as well as some other small novelties.

Changelog v3.70

  • Integrated payload 4.75 DEX by Joonie
  • Integrated Payload Mamba by Joonie
  • Pressing Triangle in Gui now the manager will display the Info System
  • Removal function Syscall much improved: -Added Support CFW 4.75 DEX -Added Removal syscall 8-35 (On CFW not Cobra) and syscall 11
  • Removed installation feature Stage2 fixato for old CFW
  • Updated PRX Loader Inside the manager for CFW 4.70 CEX / DEX-4.75 CEX / DEX

Changelog v3.71

  • Fixed an incorrect offset in patch Webman (Thanks Alexander)
  • Now the fix games in JB format is only for FW smaller of 4.70
  • Run various parts of the source code that reported an incorrect version of the FW for the fix games

Unfortunately I could not test the new manager on CFW 4-75 DEX because I am on vacation without a PS3 but I double checked the offsets over and over again through IDA PRO, and then are by Joonie, then I have no doubt of their operation.

CAUTION: First install the version 3.70 and then Version 3.71

Finally, from Orion's Twitter: To all PS3 CFW users I and Gamesonic Staff will relase a new plugin for a total security on PSN called Open PSN.

Relase Date: September
