Sponsored Links
126w ago - While everyone is awaiting further details on PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware 4.21 from the Red Power Team, today multiMAN was updated to version 04.06.00 followed by v04.06.01 adding PS3 4.21 CFW support among the changes outlined below.

Download: MultiMAN v04.06.00 / MultiMAN v04.06.00 (Mirror) / MultiMAN v04.06.00 (Mirror #2) / MultiMAN v04.06.01 / MultiMAN v04.06.01 (Mirror)

What's new in multiMAN 04.06.00:

  • multiMAN celebrates 2 years. CONGRATULATIONS!
  • Added support for 4.21CFW (CEX) (syscall 6-10 required):
  • "Standard" BD-Emulator option (sc36) (Hermes not supported yet)
  • Direct Disc Access (LV1&LV2 patched for Storage Manager access)
  • Raw access to optical media (PS1 backups & Showtime access to BD/DVD/CDs)
  • BD-Movie Region Changer
  • BD-Mirror for INT/EXT games

! Not fully tested with Red Power's 4.21CFW (Hermes payload used and syscall 1021 required)

What's new in multiMAN 04.06.01:

  • Added support for 4.21CFW (DEX) (syscalls 6-7 required):
  • "Standard" BD-Emulator option (sc36)
  • BD-Mirror for external / USB games

Finally, below are some related comments on the multiMAN v04.06.00 update as follows:

From Lightyear: multiMAN has supported 4.21 for a LONG time. now it's just CEX 4.21 support... it's really not that different. and deank releasing mm that supports 4.21 does NOT mean a completely 3rd party scene group is working on a new 4.21 CFW! they are not even working with dean... they have their own backup manager, according to their posts. *facepalm*

FWIW, multiman automatically worked on 4.21... dean didn't change anything to make that happen. someone just tested it out and realized it worked. just like PSX support. that was just a native thing that someone just "discovered" was working one day.

From deank: I see no mentions of DEX in the "What's new"/change log, quite the contrary. And - no - the mM update server is not hacked.

I just woke up and read some posts about some chinese shtty dongle for 4.21... Just to make it clear - the mM update has nothing to do with it and doesn't need a dongle if used with 4.21cfw. It is a pure speculation I guess, because there are a lot of people around who won't allow another dongle to surface anyway. I don't believe that their dongle (which I doubt it exists at all) will see the light of any day!

Why do you ask me about their stuff? I don't know any of them nor do I know what they're going to do. Someone leaked a file from their 'promo system' (the eboot.bin they use to launch that old multiMAN version), I took a look at it, I saw what patches they use for 4.21 and implemented some of them in mM and added syscall36. As simple as that - that way nothing is hidden in 'their system/manager' and is available in the regular public mM version. I know for sure that their firmware uses hermes because I saw how the payload and stuff is loaded in that leaked eboot.bin, hence I mentioned it in mM's changelog.

I already posted what I think few pages back. In addition to that - I think it will be a huge mistake if they decide to sell dongles.

I added some additional checks to make mM recognize when it is running on peek/poke-enabled 4.21CFW. Then it adds syscall36 just like it does on 3.55, which means that games should work without patching.

When asked why update MM to a hypothetical 4.21 his reply was quite arrogantly: Because I can, no other reason.

Also from deank when asked why 4.21 CFW support was listed if not fully tested yet: Ah, just don't tell me what and where I should put.

Finally a few weeks later he partially comes clean, revealing what used to be open source code and making the following statement for those interested.

the only thing you'd really want the dongle for is to play your legally owned ps2 backups, well that's what i'd get it for anyway. otherwise, multiman and kmeaw is just as good!

Surely he 's using it without dongle. Guys, please, wake up. Without dongle, doesn't do nothing more than what old version always did plus a lil more tricks..

I cant really help much with that as im on Rebug 3.55. Some more info might help others figure it out, I assume you are using the new cmMM 4.00?

Do you have the Cobra dongle? does it happen EVERY time you exit MM or only with certain games mounted etc?

The way I see it, even if he did "sell out", at least this version of multiman works without the dongle so you can use it on kmeaw. To me that sounds more like the case of "this is the free version but with the pro you get these features", which, I'm perfectly fine with.

Open Office is only one of many open source projects. It in itself is the combination of many other open source projects. There's literally millions of open source projects out there.

I don't fault deank if he decided to profit off Multiman. As far as I know, he contributed the vast majority of work to the project. If he solicited the help of others under the guise of open source and then turned around and sold it for a profit, then I'd have a different opinion, but as far as I know that is not the case. Would I prefer he continued with a free open source development? Of course.

Also, it's worth nothing that deank has denied allegations that he's working with Cobra. His past actions have given me no reason to believe he's anything but trustworthy. I agree the sudden stop of development appears suspicious, but there's many possible scenarios.

Maybe it's all coincidence and other factors in his personal life have stopped development. Unless you know deank personally, I don't think anyone has a right to doubt his claims. I can imagine many scenarios that he might not want to share with everyone (eg. cancer, dead relative, unemployed, etc) and it'd be terrible if people were giving him a bad name over purely circumstantial evidence.

I'm grateful for his past contribution as I know I'm entitled to nothing.

I have said that they both dongles are doing the same. But for me guys like grafchokolo have done much more then those both teams. All the files used on this both sticks are frm dev_flash and just patched/ported and not rewritten or anything else.

But anyway it seems you haven't understood. tHeUnknOwEnSeCRet will do this all for acid cfw and even don't want fame. He only do this for helping peoples and he do this for acid cause we share the same ideology about those things.

Or some other teams, like exetrimall

You seem fairly sure the way you say "HE IS", Any actual real proof of Dean's involvment or is it just Team Ac1ds personal opinion?

BTW: love the GUI's in multiman, really smooth. its really come on in the last year. Anyone seen the way the glitter in screensaver moves with the Sixaxis angle? its neat!

I think DUPLEX are the answer to all these problems, just wait for the DUPLEX release, that's what I do and I don't mind waiting a little longer for the latest games.

Actually it doesn't say that it requires the dongle at all for anything. It says it will work without the dongle. So I guess I'll be the only one that will test it.

The thing that makes less sense is how would it work if without the dongle the system thinks its on ofw?? So how would a homebrew app like MM work? lol
