243w 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 "

Skate 3- asks for disc on load

Dragons Age - loads without intro, clicking "new game" results in blank screen and proceeds no further. I believe it has trouble playing the videos off anything but the disc. Also even in non jailbreak mode it now doesn't like my add ons or saved games, says corrupted data.. Worked previously. Need psn to redownload

Demons souls - will start up on external, but only works with the original disc in the drive, where it starts to load data from after that.. Kinda pointless

Dead space - blank screen

Killzone 2 - works, seems to play fine

Not a very high hit rate for me!

Ok I know I have posted a couple of times about the black screen problem. Here is an update. I have tried psgroove with a TI-84 plus, and psfreedom with an android eris. Both yield the same result. No matter what I try and boot whether it be games, or homebrew, whenever it starts (or attempts to start), I get a black screen.

Sometimes I get a hard lock up where I have to hold the power button for 10 seconds, other times it turns right off, but in all cases it just sits at the black screen. Since I highly doubt that both devices (calc and phone) are faulty it leaves me to believe that the firmware might be messed up or something to that extent. Any body have any ideas?
