October 8, 2010 // 11:32 pm - Today a PS3 Netflix style Backup Manager dubbed Flex Manager is available, courtesy of khaosjimena, 0o_shelak_o0, Cuberata and Charlo at (linked above) and dogie721 and Jurai2 here as well, which comes in several versions that have been added below.

Download: Flex Manager v1.0 / Flex Manager v1.0.1

Version 1.0.1 Changelog:
•add some bottom temporary on front
•waiting for option over the games selected

For those curious, it allows you to select from PS3 games on your HDD similar to how you would choose a Netflix movie, and covers should be 348x400 in size and placed in the following directory:


Finally, the titles need to match their respective PlayStation 3 game ID counterparts and currently PNG image names must be in CAPS to work.

Here are other revisions that led to Flex Manager:

Pretty Manager - functionally it is the same as the BG mod, but uses a nicer interface. Interface provided by neversun.
Pretty Manager r2 - very minor speed improvement on the png stuff, not enough though.. paths displayed below game title.
Pretty Manager r3 - added drizzt84's ansi workaround, regressed the png changes. PNG's should now display while in Hermes mode (requires deleting cache2 folder).
Pretty Manager r4 - changes to support Hermes v3 since everyone seems to agree it works fine. UI corrections, FTP status currently doesn't display. Direct boot dialog removed. FTP toggle remapped to L3
R3 toggles attempting to direct-boot.
Sexy Manager r1 - initial release.
Sexy Manager r2 - fixed the page jumps on left/right, were set incorrectly.
Sexy Manager SRC (Oct 6 2:45pm)
Sexy Manager SRC (Oct 6 4:45pm) - updated source with w4r10cks fixes.

Pretty Manager r4 Skin Mod

Open Manager New GUI - uses the "dev_hdd0/GAMES" folder to copy/store backups.
Open Manager Type S - Changed the OM background. Changed the ICON. Added PIC1. Added PIC2 and Added SND0.AT3 from Split Second.

Sexy Drizzt - FTP ON/OFF. Game title is not truncated at 37 bytes but at 65 (you have more space than the original implementation). Use "HOMEBREW" string instead of "HOMEBREW MODE". Startup audio is not working.
Open Manager v2.0 Gaia Beta 1 - Hermes v3 patching enabled (L1). Graphic / Background changed (thanks to klush) to allow safe area. Buttons remapped (exit key removed, use menu to exit). Direct loading removed (it works with only 10% of games). All my old patches.
Open Manager v2.0 Gaia Beta 2 - Fixed the highlight alignment (thanks klutsh). New BG file with IP: aligned (thanks klutsh) and bottom size bar expanded.
Open Manager v2.0 Gaia Beta 2 SRC
Open Manager v2.0 Gaia Beta 3 - Added "Direct Boot" mode (L2). Changed the key combo to change the internal game dir to SELECT+HOME. Fixed square button to backup from bdvd. Removed "Put games from BR-DISC" and "Put the homebrew in USBXXX:/homebrew" strings. Reduced the gap between one device and his size and the next device, in the bottom bar.

CB Manager v2 - UTF-8 Fix. Re-worked the gui. Peek Fix. XMB Start removed. Cleaned some code. Buttons re-mapped. Atrac AT3 removed. Fixed Permissions not working properly. Fixing Permissions will start in "/dev_hdd0/game/" and changes ALL directorys and files to chmod777/666. Asking YES/NO somehow broke it for PS3 Slim.

Thanks Jurai2 for you hard work and keep it going, the 'clones' of your Manager just proves it's good indeed!

I love how the FAKE manager background image BG.PNG has a spot for size and game count painted on. So useful...

Nice and shiny stuffs but USELESS! we gonna spend more time looking at our back ups in the manager or we gonna play the actuall games. I dont spend more then 5 second in the bm while i choose the game. So i don't really care about how the cover come up while i browse within them.

Install Jurai2's Covers.pkg ftp these over to the OMAN46756/USRDIR/ folder.... Enjoy being able to read the text and not see FLEX Manager on screen.

Jurai2 all credit goes to you and original creator of OM for this Flex and on other forums people are saying you worked on this with others from Elotrolado lol, as far i can see it's just modded cover manager and nothing else. Guess someone is good at photoshop.

Well Jurai2 great work as always keep it up!!

Yellow on white background? I can barely read it.

It would be nice such an eye-candy manager however. Thanks for the effort

Clearly this FLEX Manager (Who the hell is flex?) is nothing more than Jurai2's Cover made a little prettier. Jurai just started on it and it's in it's infancy. Although it does make cover look much better it hardly deserves to be called "FLEX Manager" call it what it is Jurai's Open Manager Cover Edition Mod.

guess I should have been more descriptive in the fact that the eboots are 1:1 matches
