New guy needs some clarification? –
So I got BM , Open Manager and FTP installed on my ps3 slim and working using psfreedom on my iphone 2g. I just need some clarification on 2 things:
1) Any BR game in the drive will work for booting backups?
2) What is Hermes and do I have to do something special with Open Manager to launch a game that it copied to the internal drive for me? Also if it is on internal I still need a BR game in the drive for it to even launch right?
thanks in advance
Hi, welcome to the forums...
1) Any Blu-Ray game will work (demos included) as long as the disc shows as a game in the XMB. I heard rumors that using demos can cause compatibility issues, but nothing concrete about that.
2) Hermes is a modified version of PSGroove official dongle hex, it allows you to play certain games with no disc in the drive, but again, compatibility is further disrupted when making use of the discless feature (just put a disc in if the game doesn't boot). You also need Open Manager (latest release preferably) to make use of these type of features.
There are also patches introduced with the latest hermes build which allow previously unplayable games like F1 2010 to work, and there are other package installation features, but I suggest you spend some time reading up about them if you want to know more.
Here is the Hermes V3 release thread:

Great reply!!!! Thanks! Now I read somewhere using open manager I have to hit R2 to enable Hermes mode or something?
