You can just rename the directory with blackb0x ftp or with awesome filemanager v0.06+

It takes no time

The hermes mempatch was also a payload patch before it was included into any managers. As long as a payload accepts peek/poke, developers can introduce the calls into their apps.

This will keep the payloads down and everybody would be using the same payload. The app is what should be applying the calls.

In theory, as I don't use any games that require the existing patch in your manager, can I replace the two values to use the new values?

The offset patch is a payload patch, not an application patch.

Psfreedom (PL3) can be easly modified to do it (and it will be added soon).
You should ask to psgroove developers to add it.

I won't waste time to add it in Gaia Manager, if a user wants to do it I will accept and add his patch...

Nice to see you got your own little section now mate!

Next addition to Gaia has to be the 0x80000000000057410 offset patch

Congrats on getting your own thread Drizzt, well done.

Can you incorporate the new mempatch (for retail updates etc.) into Gaia?

Gaia Manager v2.07 released


It's based on Sexy Manager and Open Manager (the psx-scene one) 1.17.2 release.

Direct Boot mode is unsupported! Use it at your own risk!
PL3 dev (peek & poke) payload is not supported and using it may crash your PS3.
Precompiled psgroove+pl3 versions often include dev payload, so use my builded hexes instead.
Do not report any bug involving Direct Boot nor PL3 dev! Thanks
