  • Fixed issue accessing /setup.ps3
  • Updated prepNTFS 1.05

  • Fixed freeze mounting games in 1.34.08

prepNTFS v1.05 by deank

Download: prepNTFS 1.0 (297 KB) / prepNTFS 1.0 (SELF) (273 KB)

Prepare NTFS drives for webMAN access. prepNTFS reads the /PS3ISO, /PSXISO, /DVDISO and /BDISO folders (PS3 Games, DVD Video and Blu-ray movies) in your NTFS external drive and allows to mount and play your ISOS using webMAN 1.24 and later.

Folders - Content:

  • /PS3ISO - PS3 Games
  • /PSXISO - PS1 Games
  • /DVDISO - DVD Video
  • /BDISO - Blu-ray Video

Update 2013-12-11:

  • prepNTFS is updated to clean the .ntfs* files from the wmtmp folder

To grant NTFS access to webMAN you will have to use prepNTFS. You can either install the prepNTFS.pkg application or launch prepNTFS.self from multiMAN's mmOS. In either case prepNTFS will scan all connected USB drives and will generate data for all PS3ISO/BDISO/DVDISO entries in /dev_hdd0/tmp/wmtmp.

NTFS entries have .ntfs[PS3ISO] / .ntfs[BDISO] / .ntfs[DVDISO] suffixes - 64KB each - this is what webMAN will use to mount the games/videos.

You have to use prepNTFS if you add new content to your NTFS formatted USB HDDs. Do not forget to use [Refresh XML] / [Refresh HTML] to refresh webMAN's data.

Note: Do not launch the prepNTFS.self with NTFS mode (PFS driver) enabled in multiMAN/mmCM.

If you really want to see something naughty, check this:

Binary: webftp_server_webchat.sprx

btw the webchat doesn't need any external component... only ~50 lines of code were added.

Changelog for webMAN MOD 1.34.10 Multi 23 (2015-01-02):

  • Fixed issue with webMAN Games not showing (due change from localhost to
  • Added ability to use a custom IP address on XMB links (defaullt
  • File Manager now can display more files
  • File Manager use now relative links (makes html smaller)
  • Added link to /cpursx.ps3 to search current game on google (url can be customized)
  • mygames.xml now is always generated if it doesn't exists
  • Added webMAN MOD PS3 Manager API v1.0.2 edition by _NzV_ (cobra+multi23+ps3mapi+rebug+webchat)

PS3M API edition requires PRX Loader 1.08U mod by NzV or with Cobra version of PS3M API.

Download: PS3M API Tool Client for PC


  • Copy /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD/USRDIR/webftp_server_ps3mapi.sprx to /dev_hdd0/game/PRXLOADER/USRDIR/webftp_server.sprx
  • Load with PRX Loader 1.08U mod by NzV on nonCobra CFW or with Cobra CFW disabled.

For Cobra version of PS3M API:

  • Copy /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD/USRDIR/webftp_server_ps3mapi.sprx to /dev_hdd0/webftp_server.sprx
  • Add /dev_hdd0/webftp_server.sprx to /dev_hdd0/boot_plugins.txt (if it is not already added)

Rebug users using PS3MAPI should replace /dev_blind/vsh/module/webftp_server.sprx

From Rudi Rastelli: Short how-to:

1. Copy "webftp_server_webchat.sprx" to root of "dev_hdd0"
2. Add line "/dev_hdd0/webftp_server_webchat.sprx" to "/dev_hdd0/boot_plugins.txt"
3. Reboot PS3
4. In chat click on "guest"-button and enter your name

How can i leave the chat ? Reboot ?


From aldostools: Just leave /chat.ps3

You never are logged in. The service logs only what you post and keeps refreshing the log every 10 seconds. If the log grows too much, it truncates the first 4kb. Simple, efficient and effective
