from my understanding (i may be wrong) QA Flagging adds debug menu to retail consoles, so if i already have the debug menu, why would i need to qa flag it?

if you already have a debug you should only need the qa flags and and mmcm4.01 and mmcm 4.01 dex mod.

maybe lv2loader is what i'm missing, but i'm not sure since your set up is not an original debug unit.

can anyone confirm ?

nope, used the rebug 3.55.2 CEX and putted on dex.

Rebug 3.55.2 -> QA-fl. -> LV2Loader -> lv2_kernel.self -> mmCM 4.01 -> mmCM 4.01 dex mod

Don't mess with the rebug options. Mine worked in default.

2 questions

1. are you on an official debug machine?
2. what settings are you using?

maybe you can shine a little light on this for me.

tried it on two different Debug machines, no good. maybe its a setting, who has a debug & has successfully got multiman to work.
guess work from the retail side of thing are helpful, but not giving me the answers needed.

multiman installed fine but i have an incompatible firmware error & its unable to find the BDEMU.

You need to install the mmCM v04.01.00 first on your DEX, then run this UPD PKG to get multiMAN.

try it bro

I think your problem is that you need the BDemu file installing - doesn't come packaged with multiman - look at the top of this page - its available in downloads from this site.

imtoodvs see post 4421 on previous page - that's what you need.
