Finally, below is how to launch PSN games via multiMAN for those interested from sealhealy (via psx-scene.com/forums/content/tutorial-2280/):

Launch PSN Games from multiMAN like any other PS3 backup:

1. Install your PSN package game like you normally would
2. In multiman go into file manager and navigate to /dev_hdd0/game
3. Find the corresponding game folder to the game you just installed eg. 'Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell HD' = NPEB00527
4. Copy this folder to your USB game folder /dev_usb000/GAMES
5. Now rename the copied folder to something meaningful eg./dev_usb000/GAMES/NPEB00527 becomes /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527
6. Inside the [Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527 folder create a new folder called PS3_GAME eg. /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527/PS3_GAME
7. Now move all files inside /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527/ into the PS3_GAME folder.
8. Go back to your Game list and refresh it, the new game will appear
9. Mount the game
10. When kicked back to XMB start the game from App_home not the disc icon


  • You don't always need to copy all files sometimes just creating the file structure and copying the eboot.bin and param.sfo is enough.
  • I also think the reverse maybe true for some other games that don't work copying only eboot.bin eg. leave behind only eboot.bin param.sfo TROPDIR in the /dev_hdd0/game folder.
  • Creating a shadow copy of the USRDIR may also work? Nope

Here is a good question i have not seen asked here. if i am running rogero 4.30 v2 and a new game comes out (ex. hitman,) and it is on 4.31 keys, will i have to use the eboot from 3.55 CFW just to play it? i am sure it wouldn't work normally since i have tried it. this applies to ALL games on 4.31 and lastly will the 3.55CFW eboots that get released even work for rogero 4.30???

the game folder isn't showing titles thats where it shows the updates or patches your not supposed to go in there at all unless replacing eboots requires you too, those are where your saved data utility is stored at, not your actual game or pkgs. Most games you will see the title in game if you've ever applied any dlc, or updates and you will see in games also. The games folder is where the games are at.

Sorry, I do not get the part about the pkg files. Here is the problem, when I install a patch for 3.55, the folder gets creates in 'game', but MM only looks in 'games'

I have a title in 'game', which I can launch by browsing to the eboot in the file manager. It starts up fine. However, if I copy the folder to the 'games' folder, which I can see in MM, but I get a black screen when launching it.

you need to put all the backup games in the same folder where they show, and ur package homebrew files u should see in reg xmb to run

I have the latest Multiman and I cannot see all my titles on my internal HD. I have two folders in dev_hdd0: game and games
I have a lot of titles in game, but they are not showing up anymore. I have a few titles in the games folder, and those seem to be the one showing.

If I install a pkg file from XMB, it installs in in the game folder and I cannot see it in MultiMan.

Can someone advise how to control this and what is the proper way to handle this?

Below is multiMAN ver 04.13.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg from deank which includes a fix for Hermes payload for Rogero 4.30 CFW v2 with the changelog, as follows:

Download: multiMAN ver 04.13.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg / multiMAN ver 04.13.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror) / multiMAN ver 04.13.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror #2) / multiMAN ver 04.13.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror #3) / multiMAN ver 04.13.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg / multiMAN ver 04.13.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror #4) / MultiMAN Stealth Version v04.013.00 Base by Dev-Team-SPT / ARCH / MultiMAN Stealth Version (NPJA90067) (Mirror)

  • Fixed issue with Hermes payload on 4.30CEX Rogero ver 2.00
  • 4+GB split files caching from USB and "Ext. Game Data" game option now work
  • Added standalone application "* Install Package Files"
  • RELOAD.SELF from the application can be used in other homebrew tools to install PKG files via the bubble-method
  • Install Package Files app works on all firmwares

Download: Install Package Files.pkg (491.36 KB) / Install Package Files.pkg (Mirror)

About Install Package Files.pkg: This is a small handy tool for installing PKG files via the "bubble"/PSN method. It may be handy for Rogero 4.30CFW ver. 2.00 users. Rogero is preparing a firmware version which will have it 'build-in' in /dev_flash so you won't need multiMAN and you can't break/delete it, since it will appear in [/app_home] when you boot the PS3 and will come preinstalled.

It comes with background running FTP server and /dev_blind mounted (for write access to /dev_flash). stDISC and gameDATA apps will be available later for Rogero 4.30CFW v2.

From deank: In the next update the usb.cfg will not be needed and users should be able to connect any NTFS drive for transferring files and folder. Also there will be an option to overcome the USB port problem on 4.xx CFWs

Also, here is the latest pack of my apps all working on 4.21REBUG/4.30ROGERO v2 CFWs:

Download: apps_ps3_cfw.rar (1.26 MB) / app_ps3_cfw.rar (Mirror #1) / app_ps3_cfw.rar (Mirror #2)

  • bdRESET4
  • gameDATA4
  • lastGAME4
  • stDISC3
  • installPKG

p.s. The domain for the update server for mM expired on November 23rd and is not renewed and none of the online features of mM will work. (It is now back online)

Finally, from CaptainCPS-X: [Release] bdRESET4, gameDATA4, lastGAME4, stDISC3 & installPKG (Nov 26, 2012)

Hiyas everyone , deank has released some nice information regarding the next multiMAN version and he released an update of his PS3 applications (bdReset4, gameDATA4, lastGAME4, stDISC3 and installPKG). I made 2 mirrors of the original release (above) just in case.

He also mentioned that multiMAN's update server domain has expired on November 23rd and that is why multiMAN cannot establish a connection to check for updates, or any of the online features.

Today deank has updated multiMAN to v04.12.00 for both CEX and DEX with the changes outlined below, as follows:

Download: multiMAN ver 04.12.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg / multiMAN ver 04.12.00a BASE CEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror) / multiMAN ver 04.12.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror #2) / multiMAN ver 04.12.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror #3) / multiMAN ver 04.12.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror #4) / multiMAN ver 04.12.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror #5) / multiMAN ver 04.12.00 BASE CEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror #6) / multiMAN ver 04.12.00 BASE DEX (20121120).pkg / multiMAN ver 04.12.00a BASE DEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror) / multiMAN ver 04.12.00 BASE DEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror #2) / multiMAN ver 04.12.00 BASE DEX (20121120).pkg (Mirror #3)

  • Added full support for Rogero 4.30CFW Version 2.00
  • LV1 peek/poke support
  • PS1 disc backups support
  • Direct Disc Access support
  • Added new function in "Home" column - "* Install Package Files"
  • Added new option in "Settings" - "Install Package Files Method"
  • User can pick from either "Standard" or "PSN Style (bubble)" modes
  • Bubble mode shows installable packages as PSN downloaded content in Game column (or under Rebug's Package Manager/PSN Content)
  • To select a package file (*.pkg):
  • Use [* Install Package Files] option in Home column or double click on a pkg file in mmOS/File Manager (when "bubble" method is used the PS3 will reboot)
  • Fixed copying of AVCHD/Blu-ray movie backups from Video column

NOTE: You will need this version installed BEFORE upgrading to Rogero 4.30 v2 as the firmware DOES NOT have a "* Install Package Files" XMB entry like the other CFWs.

If you forgot to install latest mM on Rogero 4.30CFW v2.00 you can still install it by downloading this ZIP file. Put it on a USB stick and double-click/install it from mmOS and then REBOOT your PS3 and install latest mM from the bubble/PSN icon.

Download: PS3~dev_hdd0~vsh~task~00000002.zip (22.80MB)

Update: Fixed version not to scan USB subfolders for PKG files. Download the multiMAN ver 04.12.00a BASE CEX (20121120) or multiMAN ver 04.12.00a BASE DEX (20121120) version above for this modified version of the original 20121120 release.

You have to install MultiMAN 4.11.13 CEX instead of the DEX one, then if this solve your problem go into Recovery Mode and select
Rebuilt Database (if possible, backup all of your data before using that feature)

Hi all,

I've tried to install the multiman 4.11.13 DEX (don't know the difference between DEX and CEX) on Rogero's 4.30CFW. On startup of multiman I get Error 80029519. What am I missing or what am I doing wrong?

Below is multiMAN v04.11.13 Base CEX and DEX (20121118) from deank with the changes, as follows:

Download: multiMAN v04.11.13 Base CEX (20121118) / multiMAN v04.11.13 Base CEX (20121118) (Mirror) / multiMAN v04.11.13 Base DEX (20121118)

Another minor update:

  • Added check for EBOOT.BIN firmware version (offset 0x428) and prompt to 'fix' the version to your current one.
  • This will fix 80010009 errors for 04.20-04.31 games without updates if EBOOT.BIN is encrypted with 4.20/0x1C key revision or lower.
  • Tested NFS:MW on 4.21REX without installing the 01.01 update for the game.
  • It will probably fix errors on Rogero's 4.30CFW if 4.35 games are released encrypted with 4.30 keys.
