Jailbroken PS3. –
I have an old PS3 60GB I put KMEAW 3.55 on. I also installed Multiman which includes Showtime.
Is there a possibility to update Showtime within multiman?
If you want to go back to OFW, can you simply press triangle and remove multiman this way? Can you also do this with BDROM-Reset and Multiman Last game or do you have to delete this somewhere in the filesystem?
Can you play cinavia protected movies with Showtime?
Are there any other intresting apps I should check out?
What is direct launch?
Can you launch games directly from xmb with multiman like people did with the first games by replacing an eboot?
Is there some homebrew to control the fan speed?
To update Showtime in multiman, simply delete the "showtime.self" executable in the multiman program dir through MM's file manager, then try and relaunch it again from MM's main screen. It will detect the missing file, and prompt to download the latest build from deank's server. Note however, MM's latest Showtime build is not the "cutting edge" of the Showtime revisions.
Showtime itself is a seperate application that has nothing todo with multiman. Showtime officially released builds are here: https://github.com/andoma/showtime/downloads , however I'd recommend checking out either Redsquirrel's Unofficial repacks here: PS3 Showtime Repack ->Showtime Repack Unofficial Builds or facanferff's new modified builds with TV channel plugins added, and a few other tweaks here: https://github.com/facanferff/showtime
Concerning cinavia protection, the fantastically amazing CFW Rebug would be my recommendation for far more reasons than just trivial movies. It has cinavia disabled in all the builds. It offers a wealth of options more than kmeaw, but people are slow to change. Codename: REBUG
If you are bent on sticking to Kmean though, you can try patching Kmeaw with this newly released toy: http://psx-scene.com/forums/content/...-builder-1266/ (You should read the news page!)
which is a "task" (plugin) for Modified Firmware Builder: http://psx-scene.com/forums/f6/mfwbuilder-v-02-a-84066/ (MFWBuilder v.02) (Check the last page of the thread for some fixed builds, and all the files you require. Be mindful to not apply LV patches to CFW's, as they have their own modifications already.)
I have no idea if cinavia carries over to other applications outside of the XMB, but most likely not. As far as the PS3 is concerned, homebrew are "games", and launched with the same kernel. Just wasted ram and resources, and more than likely unloaded. Just test it for yourself or search other threads.
To go back to OFW, you must simply reinstall one of Sony's original PUP's. All custom firmwares make radical changes to the kernel, allowing homebrew debug packages and executables to run and providing patching framework for "payload" injection into the memory, allowing backup managers to work in the first place. There is no reason to ever switch back to an original Sony firmware to gain features over a CFW.
In terms of PSN, workarounds pop up for short bursts to get a CFW on psn, but Sony closes the door eventually, and much faster than before now since they have finally dedicated some staff to cleaning up their big mess. All new games built with Sony's newer 3.6x SDK have all new digital signing keys, which will most likely not be discovered anytime soon if ever. A small handful of them are playable with fixes, thanks to stupid goofs by software houses not uni formally upgrading all their development/publishing software, and releasing official game patches compiled with older SDK's, using the old keys. With the aforementioned small handful of exceptions, new games will never run on a CFW. You have to make the choice, (or be smart and get a second PS3)
Once you update to any firmware higher than 3.55, you can *never* go back again and you have lost the ability to run homebrew forever. Switching between any firmware 3.55 or lower though, is fine. You can freely jump around between different versions of 3.55 CFW's quite safely. There is no reason to use Sony's original 3.55 anymore though, as none of the features are lost on any CFW.
Again, from 3.56 and up, Sony have closed all the security holes and the chance of having a newer CFW ever seeing the light of day is almost none existant.
If you understand the bug that was exploited to get the system keys in the first place, you'll understand the bigger picture: 27C3 - Console Hacking 2010 on Vimeo
Sony have changed all the system keys, and that fatal flaw in their security design has been remedied.
It might be possible, with some extremely complex soldering, to run a dual nand setup between CFW and OFW at a later date. Again, follow the news sites. It's been a buzz for a while.
BDRom-reset and LastGame are small little complimentary programs to MultiMan. Just like any PS3 backup manager, PS3 games are loaded off the hard drive by using a special "payload" to redirect the internal path of the blu ray drive to the storage location path on the HDD of the game you're trying to load. Informally referred to as "mounting", this redirection stays in the memory for the duration of the PS3's powered session. To gain access to the BDrom drive normally again, this redirection must be undone. BDrom reset does just that. It simply returns the internal path back to the physical drive. The same thing can be achieve by power cycling your PS3. It's purely a time saver.
On a side note, Multiman has it's own specially crafted twin payload for BDrom emulation/redirection which isn't included with it:
Rebug's 3.55 flavours comes with the older version of that payload (v1) packed with it, which you should ignore if you go that route.
LastGame is a special "quick mount" app that's automatically modified by Multiman everytime you choose a game from the menu. Multiman simply records the game you chose in LastGame's data dir, and from there on it becomes a quick shortcut to that title to remount it from a cold boot, without needing to relaunch the entire multiman interface again. Multiman itself will patch LastGame with the path and icon/video background of the specific game, but the title name will not update to the current one untill you actually run it once. The correct game title will be displayed on subsequent runs, untill you change the game again from multiman.
I'm not going to explain anymore about multiman. You seriously need to read the documentation and edjumacate yourself: multiMAN beginner's guide - GBAtemp.net (RTFM yo...)
"Interesting apps" is entirely subjective. What some like, others may find silly.

or screw around with something fun like PSVibe: PSVibe v1.0 Released - Vibrating Fun! | PS3-Hacks :: Hack your PlayStation 3 (There's a 2.0 release out, but it wasn't working for me.)
A fan favourite right now is the ability to change the PS3's boot logo and starting sound, called the "coldboot startup":
Find a creation you like here: http://psx-scene.com/forums/f118/cus...rk-here-81487/ (The Custom PS3 Boot Logo/sound THREAD! Post your WORK HERE!)
and easily install it with this tool: http://psx-scene.com/forums/f6/coldb...staller-81562/ (Coldboot Installer)
or if you're ambitious, try making your own: http://psx-scene.com/forums/f118/%5B...creator-81351/ ([Release] Custom PS3 Boot Logo Creator)
You can also find some extremely professional themes for the XMB, and all the major managers here: Playstation 3 Theme Depository - Themes for PS3 software and more - Home
While multiman does include an FTP server, in my experience it's a little crash prone. I would highly recommend using a dedicated FTP server app.
My personal favourite for speed and stability is OpenPS3FTP: OpenPS3FTP v2.3 | PS3-Hacks :: Hack your PlayStation 3
followed closely by BlackBox FTP: PS3 FTP Server v1.2 Released | PS3-Hacks :: Hack your PlayStation 3
For advanced users, and I do not recommend you play with this unless you know what you're doing, there is a modified version of OpenPS3FTP that allows you to write directly to the PS3's flash:
This is based on an older version of OpenPS3FTP's source, and should not be used instead as your regular.
YOU CAN BRICK YOUR PS3 if you incorrectly change key files in the flash. Don't mess with this unless you have a specific goal you have thoroughly researched.
It's a wise move to keep a backup of your dev_flash partitions on your computer. Each FTP server app here has it's own default login/password. Make sure you check the documentation...
Finally, I haven't seen any application thus far for controlling fan speed, or any thermal related toys. A task plugin for MFW builder would be pretty sweet though, if such routines are ever discovered.
