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 "

I've uploaded the eboot file

@PS3ex
I extracted the eboot file from your ver3 BM using pkgview and opened it in XVI32 (hex editor) and changed the 2 references to GAMEZ to VIDEO, ftp'd it across overwriting the old file but i cant get it to start. I get some 800.. odd code error.

Am i missing something?

thank for those 3, just what I have been looking for much appreciated.

I am currently copying my GAMEZ folder from the Launch12345 directory to the hdd/GAMEZ directory which is a great idea especially with the possibility of the Gamez being deleted if I delete the launch1234 folder.. using comgenie's file manager .04 but I noticed under advanced mode it only has a copy directory setting and not a MOVE directory setting, so its taking very long and I need to baby-sit each game then when it's copied, I must delete the old folder cause I am almost out of space. Just wondering is there any other program that will allow MOVE rather than copy? been thinking about performing MOVE folder with ftp app but if i remember correctly it does not allow that? thanks again.

Version 3 is the no disc check version. I'm looking for one that depends on the disc check.

yeah i use a ninja backup manager and i suppose its a good idea to move the files out of there because if you delete the backup manager in the xmb (for any reason) all of your games would be deleted also.

and wtf are you on about 00h its just 00 ... hex...

meh

Sorry, i can't. I think its a little more then a byte-change.

@LioMajor
Yes I did.

There are 2 Positions in the File:

1. Search for "/dev_hdd0/game/LAUN12345"
Change to "/dev_hdd0" fill remaining Bytes with "00h", don't use Spaces (20h)!

2. Search for -> "/dev_hdd0/game/LAUN12345/GAMEZ/"
Change to "/dev_hdd0/GAMEZ/" fill remaining Bytes with "00h", don't use Spaces (20h)!

@bl0wme
2. NoDisc-Version
3. NoDisc-DirectBoot-Version (DirectBoot will not work for all Games)

If you use the orignal Backup Manager, your games are stored in /dev_hdd0/game/LAUN12345/GAMEZ. Copy them to /dev_hdd0/GAMEZ or backup again.

why move the GAMEZ folder?

Tested:

Bioshock 2 - External HDD - Working

Mod Nation Racers - External HDD - Working

Donate's Inferno - External HDD - Needs Disc in Drive to boot - It hangs for me with a loading wheel on the bottom right.

Others have said this game is working so I might have a bad rip, someone else will teed to test.
