December 9, 2011 // 4:44 pm - Following up on the initial release, today andbey0nd has made available version 2 of his GameData Tool PS3 homebrew application followed by some revisions below.

Download: GameData Tool v2 PS3 Homebrew Application / gameDATA9.pkg.155.v9.00.pkg

To quote: With this new version this time round andbey0nd tells us that his tool now has the ability to be used with ANY CFW (Cobra/TB/Kmeaw/Rebug/MFW 3.41 and 3.55) utilizing syscall35 , fixed a bug that was present in Rev1 and made the package smaller. So with that said we present you with gameDATA Tool (Rev2) and changelog below:

What does it do?

  • 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

Changelog:
9.00 (multiMAN 04.55.00+)

  • Added support for 4.50DEX, 4.53CEX, 4.55CEX

8.00 (multiMAN 04.46.00+)

p.s. It is only compatible with mM 04.20.00+ and its own payload and won't work with other payloads or redirections set by other tools/managers. For previous versions of multiMAN use an earlier version of the gameDATA tool.

GameDATA (rev 2)

  • Installs on all connected USB drives (but uses the first detected USB for the game-data storage)
  • Works properly after a clean PS3 start (when no payloads are preloaded by other tools/managers) (bugfix from rev 1)
  • Added "(utilizing syscall35)"
  • Supports all firmwares: MFW/CFW 3.41, 3.55, including Cobra 3.55 and TrueBlue 3.55 (utilizing syscall35)

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?

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!
