Features now include integrated PS3 LV2 patching with peek and poke support, and the full changelogs are detailed below.

V2.02 (3.55 CFW only) Features:

  • Fixed compatibility with old ps3s
  • Improved start up time (it's faster now)

V2.01 (3.55 CFW only) Features:

  • It does not try to load the syscall every time you start Gaia Manager, but only the first time. that should be fix some crashes when reopening Gaia Manager.
  • It's reported that if the PS3 crashes sometimes you will need to do an hard power off / power on (detaching cable and reattaching).

V2.00 (3.55 CFW only) Features:

  • Built for CFW 3.55 (with peek & poke support), integrate lv2 patching support (so, no need to use lv2.pkg). You need to remove old Gaia Manager from XMB before installing it

Finally, a video of Gaia Manager in action on PS3 Custom Firmware v3.55 is posted below!

I just bought a jailbroken PS3 and I want to be able to download games myself and play it since I will be moving to the US where games are so expensive. I have an original PS3 also so I will do online gaming on that.

My question is how do I know what versions of games to download? AFAIK, I cannot play 2k12 and some other games because the jailbroken PS3 does not support it yet. How do I know what games these are? How do I find out what version Gaia Manager I have?

Also, if I want to download a game, is it as easy as just downloading the torrent and uploading it to my PS3? Or do I need another/more apps? What apps are those? Thanks in advance.

I don't believe so, however, below is a Gaia Manager v2.07 Unicode Version update via Blackotoo for anyone who still uses it:

Download: Gaia Manager v2.07 Unicode Edition

This is an upate to Gaia Manager 2.07 which supports Unicode. (character fonts the original 2.07 version does not) This is straight from drizzt but currently is not the official 2.07 build in circulation.

This will now display the PARAM.SFO information exactly how they are supposed to look. You can now see Japanese fonts, TM, Copyright/Registered symbols etc.

I heard that multiMAN auto-edits the PARAM.SFO to work when the game is 3.56+

Does GAIA manager also does this?

Please answer if you know.

Here is another (older) version of Gaia Manager that now works with Waninkoko CFW v2 from L-S:
Not a day goes by without an update of a manager since the arrival of the Custom Firmware. Today is Crisetbets technician at Logic-Sunrise, which offers us a new version of the PS3 game manager called Gaia Manager.

Like all other kinds of applications you can copy your originals on your storage media inside and outside, start your backups... This version is 100% compatible with CFW Waninkoko V2, and directly integrates the payload, the LL2 is also patched.


  • Made to be 100% compatible with CFW Waninkoko V2
  • Directly integrates the payload
  • LL2 is patched

Note: As always, the latest Gaia Manager builds are located in the first post of this thread.

you are mistaken dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/GAMES is the games folder inside of multiMAN not Gaia.

Is there a way of changing Gaia's GAMES folder detect path to the base dev_hdd0/GAMES instead of dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/GAMES so that Rogero's and multiMAN can all read from the same unified GAMES folder as Gaia ? Because those two programs detect games in dev_hdd0/GAMES or GAMEZ

Correct, they are legitimate but posted in the thread vs the first post at the moment: Gaia v2.06 and Gaia v2.07.

drizzt84 stated HERE he is busy with work so hasn't had time to update the first post, but since v2.07 there have been no further updates yet.

Eventually him (or we) can add them to the first post, as things get rolling again with Gaia updates.
