October 20, 2010 // 8:46 pm - Similar to LS Cover Manager and other Open Backup Managers based on Jurai2 Mods, Open Manager v2.1D along with several newer revisions HERE are now available along with an Open Copy Install v1.0 and Open Copy Install v1.1 application (with source code) for PS3 JailBreak users from wuepe at

Download: Open Manager v2.1D (Original) / Open Manager v2.1D (OMAN01234)

To quote, roughly translated courtesy of maverick83: With the release of v2.1D, there is an introduction of a new tool, which is Open Copy Install.

The tool is an utility that allows checking games installed on internal/external drive, deleting, copying from one drive to another drive and patching installations on internal drive. It is very useful if you want to do it on the fly for your JailBroken PS3.

Open Manager v2.1D Changes:

• Added Menu Language English, now detects the region if it is Spanish, Spanish shows BG3.png, if you build a BGX where x is the region of the menu display language of their region, but in this 3 and 1 English, if not is the default file will English.
• Added automatic patching to add the improvements of the last payloads (OM Opening the patches automatically, do not press anything special)

Now both PSGroove v1, Hermes v1, v2 and PL3 Kakaroto add these features.

• Added able to play games that require v3.42 modified before the moor.
• Added more patches to prevent update errors. (To be confirmed if left unpatched memory PL)


X: Runs a game
START: Runs a game directly, without having to access XMB (select game and press START instead of X)
O: Copies from internal HDD, external HDD or BluRay
^: Deletes a game
L3: Checks files
R3: Corrects file access permissions
L1: Enables/Disables controller/saves patch i.e. F1 (hermes v1)
R1: Enables/Disables FTP
R2: Switches between GAME/HOMEBREW modes
SELECT: Enables/Disables Loading game data fron external drive

Proper use of game installation (install game data) on external drive:

Note: if the game is already installed on internal drive, delete it using Game Data Utility in XMB.

1. Run Open Manager v2.1x
2. Select the game to be installed on the external drive and press SELECT to mount the external drive
3. Press X and launch the game from the disk icon or app_home/ps3_game icon
4. Follow game's installation steps and quit the game using PS when installation completes
5. Run Open Copy Install, select the installed game and press [] to mark on internal drive that the game as installed (if this step is omitted, installation will be requested again every time PS3 is reset)
6. All steps done

To launch the game, always run OP 2.1x, select the game and notice that configuration for using external drive was saved. Press X and launch the game as usual.

Interesting thought. Should give it a shot. But I don't think this can replace multiMAN.

I beg someone to upload these files to mediafire, I live in the UAE and I've that annoying dynamic IP thing that does not let me download anything from any of the sites linked for download.

If I get it, I shall mirror it to many sites, that are actually good for download.

Nice to see some source code released! It would be nice if deank would release his latest source for others to make changes as they see fit.

Today wuepe at Spanish site has updated the PS3 backup game manager to Open Manager v2.1 Rev J-2 for PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware users along with sharing an OM 2.1I-2 PS3 XMB Game Launcher mod.

Download: OM 2.1J-2 OMAN46756 3.41/3.55 / OM 2.1J-2 OMAN01234 3.41/3.55 / OM 2.1J-2 NPWR01247 - Call Of Duty B.O. 3.41/3.55 (Stealth) / OM 2.1J-2 NPWR00826 - F1 2010 3.41/3.55 (Stealth) / OM 2.1J-2 Source Code / OM 2.1I-2 PS3 XMB Game Launcher

To quote from French site PS3-Addict (linked above), roughly translated: This mod is a bit special, he is a manager that can launch a single game at a time. It will display the games directly in the XMB as in the picture above. This mod also manages the settings for each version as patch management or automatic execution. It is therefore a function similar to MagicPKG or to eboot tool offered by deank.

In the archive you can find 30 times the same manager but with a different gameid, history does not end up blocking.

Changes in revision J-2 include the following, roughly translated:

  • Signed eboot REV I-2 to run on CFW of waninkoko (Rev J)
  • Fixed always ask where to install the games on the internal disk to start the program, now set the first time you install the OM.
  • Patching the FTP deactivated, the eboot to be encrypted and not possible to change directly from now on will be Full FTP, all units being watched.
  • Include both PKG, both signed to 3.55 GeoHot as Debug mode for CFW 3.41 and 3.55 with dongle Waninkoko
  • Now if we set the external drive as a data unit of play, restart the OM longer asks to set the installation path for backup (only 3.41 and hermes dongle v3 / 4)
