Please help !! I installed the latest version (full) of multiman, this went well but when loading the system freezes and shows a screen with a laughing face. When trying to remove this version aI end up with a corrupted icon in the list. I can't install an earlier version because system says that there is already the latest version installed.

How do I completely remove multiman and what can i do to get it working again. I'm on CFW 3.55.

Thnx

Today condorstrike has made available a Metro mmCM PS3 Theme for those interested with details below, as follows:

Download: Metro mmCM PS3 Theme

To quote via tortuga-cove.com/hacking/31-ps3/6572-solar-v41-and-metro-mmcm-theme-released: I took a couple of days off from working on Solar and got bored quickly, so I made an mmCM theme called METRO, 100% compatible with the latest version 04.02.00, but I really don't have time to make themes, so I won't be making any more...
