Sponsored Links
121w ago - Following up on the Rebug 3.55.3 / 4.21.1 PS3 CFW REX Editions, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer deank has updated multiMAN to v04.10.00 which includes PS3 Rebug (REX) support alongside the changes outlined below.

Download: multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #2) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #3) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #4) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #5) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #6) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #7) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #8) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #9)

Below are the changes, as follows:

v04.10.00

  • Added full support for 4.21REX (REBUG) firmware
  • Added support for 4.21REX in DEX full mode (DEX flash + DEX lv2 kernel)
  • Added support for PS1 disc backups for 4.21REX CFW in DEX/DEX mode
  • Added support for direct-disc-access for 4.21REX CFW in DEX/DEX mode (data CD/DVD/BD discs)
  • Added support for flashing 256MB NAND *.EID0.NANDBIN backups
  • Users with broken BD drives can use 4.21REX in DEX mode with fake BDEMU stick/image for 100% game compatibility

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you're using DEX mode in 4.21REX, use this CEX version of mM (do not install the reguar DEX mM which is only for official dex firmwares).

This package also includes:

  • Rebug Toolbox 02.00.00
  • c2d + openssl
  • DUMMY_BDEMU.rar

About DUMMY_BDEMU:

It is to help users with broken BD-ROM drives (which have a working logic board and married to the PS3). A lot of games have issues when started from /app_home or using "Direct Boot", that's why this is the BEST solution for such users. You will have to be on 4.21CFW REBUG (REX) with DEX Target ID flash and DEX LV2 Kernel (full DEX MODE).

From the ReadMe file: If you do not want to waste a whole USB HDD you can use a small 512MB USB STICK to emulate your broken BD-ROM.

Needed:

  • PC and PS3
  • USB stick/drive (512MB minimum size)
  • Disc Image Generator Software (ps3gen)
  • PLAYSTATION3.iso Dummy BDEMU image
  • 4.21CFW REBUG (REX) operating in DEX mode with DEX lv2_kernel (FULL DEX MODE)
  • Connect a USB HDD to be used for BDEMU
  • Start "Disc Image Generator for Playstation3" (ps3gen)
  • Click "Show" button in the top right-hand corner
  • Click "Select File..." button
  • Locate and select "PLAYSTATION3.iso" provided in this archive
  • Click "Save / Emu ..." button
  • Select "Write Image to BD Emulator HDD"
  • Select your BDEMU USB HDD
  • Pick a slot from the list and click "Write Image"

On your PS3 with 4.21REX CFW and multiMAN 04.10.00 installed:

  • Install "Rebug Toolbox 02.00.00" and launch it
  • In SELECTOR: REBUG MODE / DEBUG XMB / DEBUG MENU
  • In DEX/CEX: Flash your DEX EID0 NOR/NAND file (DEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN or DEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN file on /dev_usb000 stick)
  • Quit Toolbox and reboot your PS3
  • In XMB "Settings" go to "Debug Settings" and set "Blu-ray Disc Access" option to "BD Emulator (USB)"
  • Turn off your PS3
  • Connect the BDEMU USB HDD drive/stick to the right-most port (/dev_usb000) - the port closest to the BD-ROM drive
  • Turn on your PS3
  • You should see "PLAYSTATION(R)3" Game Disc mounted in XMB Game column
  • Start multiMAN 04.10.00+, load a game from internal HDD or external USB HDD connected to another port. Do not unplug the BDEMU USB drive.
  • Start your game from the Disc Icon in XMB.

Done. In the pictures below you can see how it looks when you boot your PS3 with the dummy disc game, if you start it and if you mount a game with mM (Assassin's Creed III used as example) and check XMB


MultiMAN v04.10.00 is Now Updated with PS3 Rebug (REX) Support

Today deank has updated multiMAN once again to version 04.14.03 with the changes below, as follows:

Download: multiMAN ver 04.14.03 UPD CEX (20121201) (3 MB) / multiMAN ver 04.14.03 UPD CEX (20121201) (Mirror) / multiMAN ver 04.14.03 UPD CEX (20121201) (Mirror #2)

Changelog:

  • Totally reworked 8x4 display mode (compatible with all themes)
  • Added "Reset USB" option to "Settings" to disable USB bus scan/reset
  • Added new translation labels
  • Included latest installPKG standalone application

Update: Shortly following, deank updated multiMAN once more to version 04.14.03 UPD CEX (20121202) fixing a bug in the game list view present when moving up/down (it just toggles between the top and bottom entry) stating:

Download: multiMAN ver 04.14.03 UPD CEX (20121202).rar / multiMAN ver 04.14.03a UPD CEX (20121202).rar

You can take screenshots... Press the {PS} button, go to [Photo] column in real XMB -> Take Screenshot. I see that is wrong and got it fixed, thanks!

All fixed (both 8x4 and the list mode). The link in the post above is updated with the new one. Let me know how it works. You can also update online by starting mM while holding L2+R2 and update from the Home column.

Also when using 4x2, 8x4, 5x4x5 and XBDM modes and if you leave mM while in dash/home/settings it will return you to your games list on next launch External Game Data function is not to be used with all the games out there. Some work, some doesn't. I know exactly what the issue is, but it is impossible to overcome. Same goes for games with caching split files and/or using BD-Mirror function. I can give you the technical explanation if you wish but that won't solve anything.

Delete all installed game data, use a game disc, disable 'ext.game data' if enabled, disable direct-boot, and try again... Enable bd-mirror and try again... I have TFU (not the sith edition) but it works... It gives a black screen if you don't use game disc or without bdmirror.

How to turn off USB drive rearranging introduced in v4.14? Now i cannot set any games in MM

MM tells about disconnecting and reconnecting, then leave to XMB without game in disk and /app_home.. USB remains inaccessible till i turn PS3 off... I'm using Rebug 4.21 in DEX mode with BD emulation on USB stick. Before v4.14 everything was worked just fine...

so, how to turn this very bad new feature OFF??

btw, BD emulator on USB stick also disappears till i switch PS3 off. This is really bad bad bad feature!

v04.14.01 Changelog:

  • Online mM update file is down to 2.5MB and from now on will require prior BASE/FULL installation (as of now 04.14.00)
  • DO NOT UPDATE UNLESS YOU HAVE 04.14.00 INSTALLED
  • Checking for game updates will also check GAMEI folder on external USB drives for installed game data
  • Using NTFS/PFS driver with configured USB.CFG allows for any number of partitions
  • If a broken cover is detected it is re-downloaded from the update server
  • Fixed cover issues in 8x4 (and other display modes) when cover is missing or broken
  • Added 300 new covers to the update server (over 5600 PS3 game covers available now)
  • [* Install Package Files] function in mM supports:


  • up to 256 pkg files
  • split pkg files
  • sorting

  • copy/transfer progress
  • Scanned locations: /dev_usb*** /dev_hdd0 /dev_bdvd in /PKG /packages and root folders
  • Split files format: .0 - .63 / .66600 - .66663 / .001 - .064
  • Supports both "PSN (Bubble)" and "Standard" install methods

Update: multiMAN ver 04.14.01 UPD CEX (20121130).pkg (2.44 MB) / multiMAN ver 04.14.01 UPD CEX (20121130).pkg (Mirror)

Here it is - please test and report back. It should allow for any number of NTFS partitions if properly set in USB.CFG (otherwise 2 partitons only). It should allow detecting multiple hdds with same vendor/device ids (for resetting usb bus).

The issue is that mM can't reconnect them in the proper order because both have the same IDs and it can't distinguish them. Your only workaround is to connect only the drive you want to play from. Do you see both drives disconnect/reconnect when doing the usb bus reset (if they have lights and are unpowered you can see).

It is not related to multiMAN. Last week I tried to replace the libusbd.sprx, libio.sprx and other .sprx files - I used these from 3.55 and replaced the ones on 4.21 with ABSOLUTELY no result... I got the same issue so it must be something else.

After a lot of tests my final conclusion was that the drive connect order is what's important. When the PS3 boots it usually initializes /dev_usb000 first and that's why games from it work if you don't touch anything. The solution for now is:

1) Disconnect all drives
2) Connect the drive which has the game
3) Connect the remaining drives

The connect/disconnect is only possible by specifying the vendor/device IDs and as in your case - both disconnect and both reconnect at the same time which breaks the procedure. If it was working properly they'll be reconnected with 5 seconds delay from each.

Sorry for being outdated on the PS3 scene developments, but i'm just back home after several months and only now switching on my fat PS3.

Yes as long as you use the CEX version you should be fine i have the same 3.55 kmeaw you have and i am currently running multiman 4.12 hope this helps

2 sharks: use the CEX version (this is for normal console), DEX is for Debug / test consoles.
