PS3 Demo Manager v1.0

This tool for PC allows you to install PSN content in your PS3, without PSN access, creating the folder structure and files needed for it.

NOTE: It's necessary to have Jailbroken PS3 with PS3 FTP Server installed.

1. Drag the .pkg file you want to install onto the application executable.
2. If everything went ok, a folder called "00000xxx" (xxx is a random number) should be created.
3. Copy the .pkg file inside the folder.
4. Copy the entire folder in your PS3 into "/dev_hdd0/vsh/task"
5. Reboot your PS3 (without the jailbreak) and the package should appear in the GAME menu, ready to be installed.

Installation and Operation of Demo Manager 1.0

1. Download the application and copy the demomanager.exe to any folder (eg / DemoManager)

2. Download the demo you want from the network. Remember that you must be a file with. PKG (look in Google, there are several sites have them).

3. Drag the downloaded file on the file demomanager.exe demo. It will create a folder type 00000xxx (where xxx is a random number).

4. Then move the file. Pkg inside that folder.

5. We went up the folder you created with all its files to the console (via the PS3 FTP Server) to the folder / dev_hdd0/vsh/task

6. Reboot the PS3 BUT NOT EXECUTE THE EXPLOITED and we should leave the installation of the package in the game menu.

If you try to install the demo to give us a exploiteda console installation error, hence the resumption of the same has to be clean.

Awesome FileManager v0.01

This program allows you to directly manage your files on your PS3. Viewing them, moving them, and copying them. Much like you can do via FTP, but now on the PS3, without the need of using a PC and FTP program.

- When copying a file, everything 'hangs' till the copy is done.
- Copying is slow, so just wait!
- No scrolling yet

Here are the controls:

- D-Pad to navigate (up/down to navigate through files, left/right to switch the active directory listing).
- X to navigate into a directory
- O to copy the selected file (no directory) to the inactive directory listing.
- [] to delete the selected file.

Updates in v0.02:

- You can now also copy directories, and delete empty directories!
- The copying speed is also improved! (From external to internal i copied 8.11GB in 15 minutes).

Updates in v0.03:

- Added Scrolling
- Added Non-empty folder deletion
- Added a security option (Normal Mode/Advanced mode) where normal mode will only allow write access in /usb_dev and /usb_hdd0/game.
- Added the ability to backup up files over 4GB to external (explanation below)
- Fixed a hang-bug with folders with many files

Updates in v0.04:

- Fix for different (SD) screens (bigger text on lower resolutions). Now the top bar is visible and text is always readable
- Added a copying progress text (which also fixed the hanging!)
- Added retrying on I/O errors while copying
- Added an about text
- Fixed several other minor bugs

Updates in v0.05:

- 0.05b hotfix: Longer names than 10 characters are now supported
- Added Confirmation Windows to prevent accidently copy and delete.
- Added filesize information
- Added Comgenie's Awesome Filesplitter (Windows)
- Added Creation of new folders
- Added Renaming of files/folders
- More fixes for different screens
- Color highlight of the selected file

Updates in v0.05:

- Added move support for faster moving files/directories instead of copy/delete.
- Added very basic LUA support (only string/math libs + echo function). Expect much more functions to be supported in next releases
- Several fixes for (again) people with different screens

Also an important note: Be careful! It is a very dangerous tool if you don't know what you're doing. I'm not responsible in any way!

Some updates such as the Heavy Rain 1.01 and 2.0 (with move support) do not currently work and will freeze up. Supposedly, some developers found a way to fix this (I guess the source just needs to be complied), so hopefully this happens within the next fews days.

first of all,thanks for these great tool. I've a small problem... i followed tutorial to download new update and once transferred i ran them. Everything went smooth. After reboot i've tried games patched (e.g PES 2011 1.01 or Heavy Rain) and PS3 freeze.

All the icons of the xmb disappear and only the background picture stays. Even with on/off button it remains stuck, the only way to reboot is to unplug. I'm using PsGroove with Hermes V3 (ipod mini 2g), Open Manager 1.16. Do you have any hint/suggestion?

For people having trouble with backup pkgs for some games you can install the pkg then locate the extracted contents then find the games directory /dev_hdd0/game/BLUSXXXXX/ then inside the USRDIR.

most games will have a "DLC" folder and just drag the file contents, from the extracted and drop into the DLC folder then it should be activates once you start a game the EBOOT.BIN will enable them since the files are located in the DLC folder.. So for instace if you downloaded.

Call of duty: WaW map packs the go inside the USRDIR and there should be a mappack1 mappack2 mappack3 folder and drop the correct files into each folder and you should be good to go!
