so i managed to get ps3 ultimate cfw running today (thanks for those that helped), i installed multiman full version 2 and then upgraded via the multiman update.
Before i went through the update the only error i had was relating to the BR drive not being available but i hadnt ran the L2 software so that was my fault.
After the update multiman now says the following every time i start:
YOUR installation is incomplete!
Please install BASE or FULL or you may experience graphics display problems.
What have i missed? And how do i fix this?
