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.

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!

ps3 user and confused, ok i have the following:

Fat ps3 40gig model
updated Hd to 500 gig
spare external hd laying around
firmware 3.55
model number:Cechj03 PAL

my questions are as follows (i have searched but find conflicting answers):

1) can i install custom firmware?
2) will i get banned from psn for having custom firmware (at the moment i know no one can say about the future)
3) gaia back up manager mentions wiping logs so i am assuming that you can(or should) only play it while your lan cable is disconnected? and by extension any backed up games and after you play and restart your system its all safe to log on to psn?
4) can i back up my own ps3 titles using GAIA?
5) any recommended software or tips?
6) i have a jtaged 360 is cfw like that? backed up dlc etc?
7) since all this is new is it better to set back and wait?

i thank you in advance for your time.

Does kameaw's CFW now work with all games that required a disc before?

Seems that we can't use ★ /app_home/PS3_GAME/ discless with the latest version of Gaia Manager and multiMAN, they both disabled discless playing. Most of my games works discless at 2.04, only a few are not starting.

So, it would be great if we get discless mode back at next Gaia update.

I like this manager a lot because of its simplicity, it's a great complement to multiman. Anyone have a noob proof guide to stealthing it so i can do it with psn demos every week?

That's not true, they are looking to open more possibilities to us. They did their work on 3.41 and now they are trying to make a better jailbreak on 3.55

thanks for the confirmation, it is sad i am on 3.41 and i need diskless mode. we are a lot with BR drive broken and many still on JB 3.41 with dongle or CFWHermes 3.41.

the ps3 scene seems to forget owner of PS3 3.41 and moreover who have BR broken.
