Download: GameData Tool PS3 Homebrew Application / Game Cover for Ext Data Loader

To quote: Today, we get word of a new amazing and very useful app called gameDATA tool, released by developer andbey0nd.

Also we hear from the Dev that this handy app should also work for 3.41 users.

GameDATA app for PS3:

  • Allows the user to switch location of [game data] between internal HDD and first external USB HDD
  • Allows to install PSN games (or any application/pkg) to external USB HDD
  • Allows to get back to normal mode when you use "Ext. Game Data" option in multiMAN
  • Allows saving space on internal HDD

USAGE...

How to use after you install gameDATA.pkg:

Make sure that no payloads are loaded (do a clean PS3 restart).

1) If you wish to install stuff to external USB - launch the app from "Game Data Mode: [HDD]"
2) You're now in USB MODE (the icon will change to USB device with "Game Data Mode: [USB]" title
3) Install PSN games or launch games - their data will go to the external USB HDD/stick
4) Play your PSN (or disc) games from external USB device
5) Once you're done with the game, either reboot your PS3 or launch the "Game Data Mode: [USB]" to get back to normal mode

Enjoy!

A great little app that's great for saving space on your internal HDD for those games with +4GB files that can't be extracted.

This just allows you to install .PKG files to your external HDD. It doesn't do anything for game compatibility.

Is this second version compatible with more games than the previous one?
