January 20, 2011 // 4:10 am - Recently drizzt84 has updated Gaia Manager for playing PlayStation 3 game backups to version 2.00, followed shortly by v2.01 and v2.02, which also support PS3 3.55 Custom Firmware.

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

Download: Gaia Manager for PS3 CFW

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!

Hey drizzt84, I noticed there is a BOOT.AT3 sound file now in the /USRDIR folder? Is this functional yet? I'd love to have some navigational background music playing.

is there actually a way to improve discless compatibility? I'm interested in Mass Effect 2 which shows black screen after starting discless. My bluray drive is dead... Quite a lot of other games work discless so I'm interested why such games as Mass Effect 2 doesn't work.

Is it possible to debug the loading process?

Should I get either PS Ninja v4, by Smokin or LogJam by Jack Tretton? or does Gaia Manager have something along the lines of what those 2 app does?
Reminder Gaia Manager has the Sony logs cleanup since October 2010 and it's always active and working...

What is recommended ?

Can I use 2.07 on (3.41w/dongle) so I can enjoy unicode ? If not, can you update 1.041 to unicode? Please.

Thanks again for the hard work.

The source is out, this great font is available and ready to be used in Gaia.

Please make a build for testing. (so I can _finally_ switch to Gaia!! )

Didn't know that, thanks, ICON0.PNG and PIC1.PNG inside gaia folder and HIGHLIGHT.PNG,BGH.PNG and BGG.PNG inside usrdir folder works 100%

CALL_OF_DUTY_4_MODERN_WARFARE it could be simplify down to Call of Duty 4 with out the underscores or something.

Can someone explain the process if possible?

Use PS3SFOEdit to edit param.sfo to remove the underscores.
