No games show up in MutliMan after FTP transfer and trying to deleting Open manager
No games show up in MutliMan after FTP transfer and trying to deleting Open manager –
Recently upgraded to Rogero cfw from 3.55 and things were going well. I tried to upload a game via ftp and also tried to delete Open manager. Both of these did not work and now I have no games in Multiman even after rescanning. When I tried to delete open manager from the xmb, it just kept saying it was deleting it but nothing happened and I had to shut down the ps3. Now the spot that was open manager is corrupted data and I still can't delete it. The ftp game failed to upload but I was not able to see what happened as the connection timed out. One or both of these things messed something up and I don't know how to fix it. Where should I start?
To make things simple, uninstall Multiman, install the latest base Multiman for 3.55 and rip the disc again.
Ok, I am almost there. For some reason when I tried to delete Open Manager(never delete a manager! I learned the hard way), it renamed a folder to "_DEL_2013022703413100013191". I made a new "luan12345" folder and put the gamez folder in there and almost all of the games are showing up. I am missing one that won't get recognized for some reason. It was working fine before this mess. My game path is /dev_hdd0/game/LAUN12345/GAMEZ. Why wouldn't it show up?
If I remember correctly, Open Manager had the GAMEZ folder inside the Open Manager folder, which means when you delete Open Manager, it also deletes the games. So when you deleted Open Manager, it was also deleting the games which would take a long time, you thought "nothing was happening" and shut down the PS3 while it was still deleting the files which corrupted them. That's why it's showing corrupted data instead of Open Manager now.

If it doesn't work, you have to delete the Open Manager directory using FTP or mmOS. In any case, your backups are gone, while some of them might still be in the GAMEZ folder inside the Open Manager directory, I wouldn't use them because you don't know which files were deleted and which weren't. You can try moving the GAMEZ folder (before you delete anything) to the root of hdd0 and see which games still work and which don't, but I recommend re-transferring your games via FTP to the GAMES folder.
you should have moved your Games from Folder GAMEZ or GAMES to somewhere before deleting the Open Manager .so in that case your Games has been deleted .
Because it has some files that were probably deleted when you deleted Open Manager as I suggested earlier.

Move your GAMEZ folder to the root of hdd0 (outside LAUN12345) and delete LAUN12345, you don't need it anymore. multiMAN uses the GAMES folder to scan for games by default, but it scans for games inside the GAMEZ folder as well. So better to rename your folder to GAMES as well.
Ok, that info makes sense. I think it started by deleting the most recent folders by date, so my older games may be safe. The game in question was not the same size as the original folder and after reloading it now shows up(haven't tested it yet). I don't think I can delete the open manager/corrupted data from xmb. I also have a fix permissions I probably don't need anymore. What are the locations so I can delete by others methods?
Just delete the LAUN12345 folder.
Ok, everything seems back to normal. I was able to delete the corrupted data from xmb since all the games were moved to the root. FTP was not working well for me so I put the game on a usb drive and copied it to the internal drive with file manager in MM. Thanks for your help!
Great! Which FTP client are you using?
