To quote: This application has been made by an anonymous person non seeking fame, profit or benefit.

I don't want to cause any damage to the video game industry, but it is not reasonable that these consoles (expensive cost) are constructed like butter and we can not do anything to preserve the health of the lens of our readers (my console model cannot be repaired).

While Sony is rubbing his hands when you send to repair a console and them are dedicated to eliminating original features of the console, as PS3 Other OS and Linux, relying on what they think best for your business and not caring a shit or the feelings of their users or their acquired rights as users and owners of their consoles.

The video-game industry only wants control, oligopoly, money, pursuit of anything that does not benefit their interests and if it is possible, force legal changes using their influence and power while we're just anonymous people we have to endure all the crap on hardware that is passed through a computer, just to avoid taxes.

So I decided to do an experiment: I decided to see if I can make a BACKUP and Homebrew purpose loader (legal in my country), release the source code and waits to see what happens. Maybe someone has the Sony SDK 1.92 and wants to compile, it but that's not my problem.

Obviously, is 'illegal' to build things with the SONY SDK unlicensed but this is only source code

FEATURES

Open Manager has the next features:

• Supports up to 512 items from two USB devices, internal hdd and bluray

• Ability to copy games from bdvd to hdd0 or USB's, from hdd0 to USB's or from USB's to hdd0. It is done asking to you the destination device. It use uses asynchronous reading and writing for fast copy.

• Special support for big files in FAT: it splits files >= 4GB using .666xx fragments (if the file is name.ext, the file splits as name.ext.66600, name.ext.66601,...). This file is not bootable and it is marked using '_' as folder prefix. The file is joining when you copy it to hdd0 device

• Automatically finds the path of the games and asks to you about it. In other case, if the Open Manager is installed in the hdd0 creates one. You can change it pressing L2+START later.

• Including checking game option (pressing L1). It displays information about the files, size, splits or big files, if it have one.

• Support for Homebrew: you can creates "homebrew" folder in root USB FAT device and put here others folders with an EBOOT.BIN (.self format) and one ICON0.PNG. Also you can use the internal hdd0. Homebrew is launched directly and receive the path in argv[0].

• FTP support to upload homebrew: open_manager uses "OMAN46756" as user, by default. I recommend flashfxp to use it, because FTP support is not very good...

NOTE: Open Manager works with Hermes payload update. So,if you return from game list, apps_home can launch games without one disc (some games don't work without any disc), but if you return from Homebrew, apps_home works from usb000.

NOTE 2: You can modify the program as you want, but please, make public the source code.

Er, can somebody just program in an options.ini file that is read at runtime so recompiling simply to get a new game directory is eliminated? this is getting ridiculous

hdd_dir = /dev_hdd0/whatever/
usb_dir = /dev_usb0/blah/

etc

Do you know if the previous version from last night installed it in the right directory from this post:

I believe you missed my post from the previous page, where I suggested that it won't work without changes to the source.

I'm glad you're still using "my" BLES80608 ID (deanrk).

Check the version I uploaded - the source is changed so it supports all game folders.

I have the same problem of OBM v1.13 or higher not starting but instead flickering and then freezing on black screen making me have to switch off my ps3.

Older versions of OBM work fine and load (most) games... i'm using htc desire and psfreedom v0.6... using without disc option as my blu-ray is broke (60gb fat)


i am also getting this problem and don't know what to do =/

Would someone help me?

Thanks for the new version. I'll check it out. I had the best luck so far with your version of OM esp. V3. Keep up the hard work, I'll do what I can as an end user.

If you're asking about the version I posted - yes, it supports LAUN12345, too. In fact it doesn't care what the folder is named, provided it has a GAMES or GAMEZ subfolder.

You may have to set it with L2+START combination.

By the way, have you tested the previous upload? I need feedback, as a user said they couldnt get it to back up from bluray...

No, but I am going to within the next 10 minutes and will report back when it's finished. Tell her Dora was canceled.
