244w ago - Yesterday Hermes released a modified PSGroove version for running PS3 backups without a disc in the drive, and today Ulmez on Elotrolado.net (linked above) has updated the installer to PS3 JailBreak Backup Manager 2 along with a Compatible Games list (below).

Download: PS3 JailBreak Backup Manager 2

This Backup Manager lets /bdvd link to app_home/PS3_GAME so to load your PS3 game backup with this manager will need to have one of the Hermes hex codes on your device. To install it just overwrite the existing one, you do not have to delete the currently installed Backup Manager.

Once you have Jailbroken your PS3 you can launch the backup manager. Select the game you want to load and press X. It should then drop you back to the XMB. Now select app_home/PS3_GAME and press X. If all went well your game should load without a disc in the drive.

Not all games are work yet with Backup Manager 2 without a game disc in the drive, with an internal or external hard disk drive, so in the PS3 JailBreak Game Compatibility List add "Backup Manager 2" to the notes section if you used it in your results.

Here are my Backup Manager 2 PS3 game results thus far:

• 3D Dot Hero - External HDD - Working
• Donates Inferno - External HDD - Black Screen System Lockup
• Boarderlands - External HDD - Black Screen System Lockup

Finally, to quote, roughly translated: "Thanks to the work of Hermes is possible to load backups without having a BluRay on the reader, but as we all know the Backup Manager is leaving us for the work load a game without the disk inside.

But thanks to a very nice anonymous user that is no longer a problem because this program has been modified to not ask for the disc. So, in conclusion, it is possible to play without a disc in the console

To install it is not necessary to remove the previous one, just what you copy to a flash drive and instalais. The console will tell you that already exists and you will be prompted to overwrite it (if the ID matches, leads the original), you accept and go. Also respect your installed games on the hard disk, which is welcome.

IMPORTANT #1

It is important to you to know that not having a disc in the console BluRay icon appears in the XMB, you ought to go to the "app / games" to load from there select the match after the Backup Manager.

IMPORTANT #2

Some games do not load if no disk in drive nonetheless. Apparently not too many, but can be solved by inserting a disc, as with the original Backup Manager. Not a problem if the Backup Manager or PSGroove.

Remember that it is necessary to have the latest revision of PSGroove with Hermes changes "

it appears that it wasn't installing the data when I used BM 2 or just the disc. I proceeded to Install BM [the one that requires a disc] again, went to BM menu, Loaded, took me back to XMB, selected disk, skipped 2.0 question [hit o for cancel] then said yes to install and now it's working. I had the no disc, direct boot BM 2 but I don't think it works with that.

Actually, not even original disc works.

The backup manager isn't the problem for super street fighter 4, it has something to do with the jailbreak. It does the same to the original blu-ray disc of super street fighter 4 when your ps3 is in jailbreak mode. Boot up your ps3 without the jailbreak, the controller responds.

Can I delete the old trophies of the game somehow ?

Anyone having trouble with getting a fresh copy of RE 5 running? I don't have any previous updates or saves on my internal hdd from RE 5. I try to run it and says install to hdd is needed, then fails with error code 80029567. I got MGS running so far and UFC with Ninja BM v2. I backed up Super Street Fighter and Final fantasy 11, seemed to go well like RE 5, but haven't tried them out yet.

Thanks for the .hex file. All games I tried with the new modified olimex-board hex are working. Games from internal HD.

Some points i am confused about: New Backupmanager but can load games only from LAUN12345/GAMEZ directory.

When loading in BM I get everytime messages that my HD has too less space for this game.But when I play them after error message from app_home/ps3_game they work all fine.

Thanks again great work.

Damn, this doesn't help me get to play act 4 on mgs4.... with a disc or without...

I know it has files >4GB and I'm playing it on my internal but can't ever get act 4 to load properly... Does anyone know if that is a problem with current releases or something of the game itself?
