Download: Gamesonic Manager v2.35.pkg / Gamesonic Manager v2.35(No Retroarch).pkg / Source_Gamesonic_Manager_v2.35.rar / Source Webman 1.29.3u by Gamesonic.rar

Changelog rough translation: GameSonic Manager v2.35

The dev Orion releases a new update of Gamesonic Manager in version 2.35. Changes:

  • Now it is possible to apply the colors of the background grids to coverflow gui
  • Now the console id and pdid will come preloaded at boot manager

Finally, from zar via aldostools: Hi, I have made a little study on webman gamesonic and here is my result:

sprx_size_released = 56369
sprx_size_compiled_with_src = 56369

My verification of the changelog from src:

  • Italian = yes
  • Cover = no
  • Add link to gamsonic = yes
  • Fan stuff = i guess it's strcpy((char*)tmp, STR_FANCTRL3 " " STR_ENABLED); => strcpy((char*)tmp, STR_FANCTRL3 " "); STR_ENABLED; STR_ENABLE ?! wtf, Weird, are you serious... nvm. Here, you just changed the message in notification, nothing else. So, Fan stuff = no.
  • And nothing else !

1.29.3u Changelog announced:

  • The direct downloads in webman settings page for gamesonic manager, iris manager, irisman and multiman
  • Fixed bugs of control fan utility on cfw 4.46 cobra/rogero and habib who did set the fan control too high for ps3 fat
  • Fixed bug for non notification viewing on cfw 4.53 cobra/habib was not
  • Increased responsiveness of key combos on the xmb

sprx_size_released = 56671

  • Brewlogy links = Yes
  • And nothing else !

1.29.3u bis Changelog announced:

  • No changelog

sprx_size_released = 56913
sprx_size_compiled_with_src = 56913

  • Cover = yes
  • And nothing else!

I could do the same analysis for Gamesonic Manager, but I won't bother after I have seen several times the changelogs with fake features not available in the binary nor in the source code.

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.

Guide:

  • 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

Credits:

  • 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 gamesonic.it/forum/plugins-ps3/6926-app_home-ps3_game-app-loader-plugin-orion.html#post28530) 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 gamesonic.it/forum/gamesonic-manager/7256-gamesonic-manager-v3-71-a.html#post30317)

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

It is always wonderful to have a backup manager for your gaming consoles. If you want to start fresh because the OS is acting buggy, is bombarded with things that you don't want to use any longer but because it's so cumbersome sometimes to get rid of these things, it's best to start your system, factory settings and wipe everything. Then, you can restore your savegames.
