December 26, 2012 // 9:40 pm - Following up on his previous release, today German PlayStation 3 developer IcEmAn (aka IcEmAn2012) has shared a guide on using PS3 Mount Package Install Disc to mount games and avoid multiMAN relaunching with details below.

Download: PS3 Mount Package Install Disc / PS3 Mount Package Install Disc (Mirror) / Mount Package Install Disc.rar (Mirror #2)

To quote, roughly translated: Create 4.xx XMB BOOT Packages

1. Install multiMAN and lastGAME pkg
2. Mount game with multiMAN (no BD mirror) - Game should be mounted in lastGAME app
3. Copy content (dev_hdd0/game/BLES80610)
4. Make a 3.55 mount pkg (xmbgameloader)
5. Replace EBOOT.BIN and LASTPLAY.BIN (from BLES80610)
6. Compile the new pkg (_makepkg_hdd.bat/pkg_npdrm.exe)

  • Restart console and mount game with pkg
  • Start game without multiMAN (you can delete lastGAME app)

4.21 XMB BOOT Packages (Mount Package Install Disc) - 50 Games for German REBUG XMB MOD v01.08.01 (will install in mount games folder under games category)

1. Extract Mount Package Install Disc.rar in dev_usb/GAMEZ/ or /GAMES
2. Mount Mount Package Install Disc with multiMAN (like a game)
3. Insert Original Disc and install Mount Packages files
4. Restart console
5. Mount installed Mount Package file (in Mount Games)
6. Run with disc !

Mount Packages are modded for REBUG XMB MOD v01.08.01 and shown after Install in Mount Games folder under Games category!
Games must be in dev_usb000/GAMEZ/ and must have right names!

Example:

  • Game is among them: dev_usb000/GAMEZ/Call of Duty - Black Ops II-[BLES01717]/PS3_GAME/...
  • Install Mount Package files, insert a original game, mount it and run the disc!
  • May have problems with memory stalls occur, maybe game data have to reinstall, not work all games!

From IcEmAn (via iceman-modz.org/boot-packages/4-21-xmb-boot-packages-mount/): 4.21 XMB BOOT Packages (Mount Package Install Disc) 50 Game Mount Packages:

Finally, from deank on lastGAME's versatility: lastGAME application gives the moders a lot of freedom:

1) It loads Hermes payload (for firmwares 3.41, 3.55, 4.21, 4.30)
2) It can be repacked with any game ID
3) A text based configuration (lastplay.bin) in its folder allows you to configure a game to mount/load
4) You can repack lastGAME with custom LASTPLAY.BIN file to mount any game

lastGAME is a basic multiMAN add-on for almost two years.

LASTPLAY.BIN supports parameters for "Direct Boot", "Regular Load/Mount", network or local load of ps1/ps2/psp backups.

So this is basically a mod for 3.55 kmeau and other 3.55 CFW is it? Or Is there a modified firmware to go with it. How does the cex/dex update come into it? have you got one version for cex and another for dex or have you incorporated features of both into one version?

sorry if questions are stupid. I'm just trying to make sense of it. Could you please explain what this is doing. Am I right is assuming 3.55 is still the only version for installing homebrew etc?

All I want to do is play blurays, install homebrew and still play the odd latest legal games such as darksiders 2. I don't even care about piracy. Is this too much to hope for at this point in time?
