2. Get into Factory Service Mode (FSM Tool/Dongle)

All consoles have hardware information. In GameOS you can call Lv2 Syscall 393 (0x189) sys_sm_get_model to get your consoles information. In Lv1/Hypervisor its in the repository nodes sc 0x5B lv1_get_repository_node with Parameters "sys","hw","config" usually noded as "sys.hw.config#0" or something.

XMB checks this flag and if == 0, it will give following message: "This model of the PS3 system is not compatible with PlayStation 2 format software."

Those interested in running PS2 games on their PS3 console may also wish to check out the previous Open PS2 Loader v0.8 for PS3, PS3 USBLD Loader Source Code and USBAdvn Patcher and PS2 HDD Support & Discless ELF Launching from PS3 XMB articles as well.

Finally, in released news IngPereira has made available a PS2 DEX Boot 4.11 4.20 (Test) and below is also a PS3 EVO 1.0 video and release details by SONIC_BH for those interested, as follows:

Hi I just make a debug app that use some syscalls to do a reset into PS2 Lpar like boot_ps2 does, it should work on dex 4.11 or 4.20 but in these fw there is ps2 netemu instead of softemu so i need someone with an original disc of playstation 2 inserted on bd-drive and launch this test app and see what happens.

I am on 4.11 DEX but i don't have any original disc from PS2... This is basically the same thing that boot_ps2 does on 3.55 but there is a new emu file on dex 4.11 or 4.20 introduced on 3.70 with the use of PS2 Classics on PSN... This is not brick-risk, thanks to anyone who help me with this. Greetings...




1st - Download the file
2nd - Copy the file PS2 Evo v1.0.pkg to the root of a USB drive formated in FAT32
3rd - Install the .pkg from *Install Package Files*
4th - Insert a original PS2 disk on the BD
5th - Run the app and enjoy

I'm sorry but if the games folder is empty It's because It's content have been deleted and I doubt It can be recovered. I've already deleted MultiMan before and It didn't delete my games folder, so I'm not sure of what you did wrong...

I previously had mm 4.09 installed with 4.30. I updated to 4.30 v2.03 and installed mm 4.14.00 and updated to stealth. I deleted my old mm.

My problem is I don't see my internal games anywhere. When I click on the folder they use to be in (hdd0:/GAMES) it's empty.

How can I access the games I have ripped on my ps3 internal hdd?

Anyone managed to get StealthMan working on Rebug CFW? In here it just asks for the full version and freeze.

Check where are the things that dones't show in your MM ... Every game should reside in their own folder, all inside a GAMES folder in your internal (/dev/hd0) ...

As for the emulators, I guess they should be inside a folder called ROMS ... but right now I don't know if you need a folder inside for every emulator (FCEU, etc) ... I'll check it and add to this post ...

I recently updated from kmeaw 3.55 to rogero 4.30 v2.03 in order to install the multiman stealth update. Before this release, I read that ps ninja was still being used in order to achieve stealth while online. But now since multiman finally has this feature, is having this alone (meaning updating to latest multiman and incorporating the stealth update AND not installing it) enough to be pretty much safe online?

Please advise. Thanks!

Today deank has updated multiMAN to version v04.14.04 for both CEX and Stealth / stealthMAN (20121205) with details below.

Download: multiMAN v04.14.04 UPD CEX (20121205) (3 MB) / multiMAN v04.14.04 UPD CEX (20121205) (Mirror) / multiMAN v04.14.04 UPD CEX (20121205) (Mirror #2) / multiMAN v04.14.04 STEALTH BASE (APP_HOME - 20121205) (18.54 MB) / multiMAN v04.14.04 STEALTH BASE (APP_HOME - 20121205) (Mirror) / multiMAN v04.14.04 UPD STEALTH (20121205) (1.76 MB) / multiMAN v04.14.04 UPD STEALTH (20121205) (Mirror) / multiMAN v04.14.04 UPD STEALTH (20121205) (Mirror #2) / multiMAN v04.14.04 French Translation and multiMAN v04.14.04 French Translation (Corrections) by winch03200

Changelog:

  • Added support for fixing 80010009 errors for games with updates (like FIFA 2013 v 1.04)
  • mM will check the game backup, the installed update (on internal HDD and in GAMEI on external USB HDD)
  • It will 'fix' all .self/.sprx files and EBOOT.BIN
  • This feature allows you to 'fix' game updates even if you play from the original BD game disc (install the update, load the game from the [disc] icon in mM and it will check if you have installed incompatible updates and will fix it)
  • This function works only for 4.21-4.30CFW
  • Added support for installing PKG files from NTFS drives in mmOS
  • Added support for installing game updates after download on 4.30CFW ROGERO 2.03
  • Improved display of game titles in all modes (no double refresh/redraw)
  • Fixed covers issue in 8x4 display mode

For the stealth version (stealthMAN) update online or:

  • Extract the RAR archive and copy report_data.txt to a USB stick/hdd
  • Update/Install from [* Install Package Files]

I'm compiling the latest Showtime which will be available for update online a bit later and it is also compatible with the stealthMAN (if regular mM is not installed).

I'll add a link for the BASE stealth version which will import all the settings from the regular multiMAN (if you didn't already delete it) - options.bin/ini/showtime settings and plugins. It will only work for first-time users of stealthMAN or if you delete stealthMAN via FTP while in [* Install Package Files] and use the new report_data.txt which will be available soon.

Showtime 4.1.272 for mM available for online update for all mM versions.

Showtime Standalone (CEX) Download: Showtime 04.01.272 [CEX].pkg (6.31 MB)

Showtime Standalone (DEX) Download: Showtime 04.01.272 [DEX].pkg (6.37 MB)

Here is something some of you may find useful: Some of you used "Network Servers" option in "Settings" to connect to a PC running ps3netsrv to copy files, play ROMs, play music or view pictures. Now it is possible to connect to ANOTHER PS3 (running mM 04.15.00) be it in your local LAN or anywhere in the world.

  • You can copy/share data with another PS3 if the 'server' PS3 is running mM 04.15.00 and the 'client' PS3 can be using mM 04.00.00 or later.
  • You can backup games directly from the BD Disc of the server PS3, view photos, play music, install PKG files, copy games, access all devices connected to the server PS3, if you're on cobra cfw you can even play PS1/PS3 games or Blu-ray/DVD movies stored on the server PS3.
  • You can transfer game backups, movies and data from one PS3 to another without a USB drive or PC.

All in all - you can transfer/share data between to PS3s on CFW via the /net_host feature of multiMAN.

Just a side note... While improving the /net_host features to connect to a PC or/and other PS3 systems, I made a step further and added 'remote control' which allows you to interact with another PS3 running mM via remote screen. Remote screen can be full-screen or 'minimized' like in the screenshot (the minimized window is updated in real time)

It means that you connect to a friend's PS3 and help him if you're more experienced with mM or just have fun controlling your other PS3s in the house. Both sides must run compatible multiMAN versions (04.15.00 or later).

p.s. All /net_host communications are enhanced and fast - it is now possible to browse a remote PC with over 2000 ROMs/pictures/videos from the game modes (or mmOS) in a flash. Loading retro ROM covers is now greatly improved and loading remote folders is done in one pass like in early mM versions so browsing is seamless over network (to a PS3 or a PC). So many things in 04.15.00 to follow...

Can I put in a request to DeanK for MultiMan. Can you restore the 8x4 screen to the way it always was as the new way is crap. You can no longer press O then quit, its got extra icons that crash the system (disc icon with no disc in the drive) and a huge refresh icon, its not needed.

I've just downgraded to 4.13 as all 4.14 so far has problems. The USB refresh when you choose a game and the 8x4 screen problems was enough for me to downgrade and not want to update till they are fixed. 4.14 does have some bugs fixed that 4.13 has but these problems out way the little bugs.

And HOW can I get it to stop telling me there is an update? I'm not going to update so I don't want to see that message everytime I load it up.
