Thinking about upgrading to CFW
Thinking about upgrading to CFW –
Man oh man I've learnd a ton from reading here. Gotta give huge PROPS to Chesh and C* and to all the Devs as well.
I'm currently running what used to be a 40GB Phatty upgraded to 500 GB on OFW3.41 with a Teensy 2 dongle with Hermes 4b hex. Works like a charm. No crashes or black screens. Some titles have custom eboots though. I just renamed the originals to EBOOT.old and left them in the correct folders.
I am thinking about upgrading to a CFW. I realize that I'll need to use a newer BM like Gaia 2.04 or the newest multiman. Is it safe to delete the older versions of BMs that I'm curenlty running after upgrading? I don't want to have to backup everything again. Sorry, if this has been asked before. I've read the tuts on how to upgrade but I can't seem to find anything about deleteing/upgrading BMs. I remember reading something back in the early days if you removed a BM it may also delete your gamez or OMAN folders.
If you're saving games on your internal HDD, I would move your games folder (where your backups are stored) to /dev_hdd0/games/GAMEZ (safe location) and then you can delete your BMs. If using an external, just leave your external disconnected and delete the BM as you normally would. Everything will be safe
WOW that was fast. Chesh to the rescue again. Yup, they are stored on the internal in my oman folder. I'll move them on over to GAMEZ. Thanks!
All newer managers have gotten away from storing the games in a subfolder of it's install location. The reason for this is pretty obvious, that if you delete the program, it clears out its install folder (and deletes all your games). I'm pretty sure the directory I gave you is where the new version of Gaia saves it's games, but if you go with MultiMan or Rogero, you can go into the settings and set that as a location to load games from.
Well, there's and easy way to find out. I'll install the new one first before removing the old ones and back up a disk and see where it gets stored. Should be a piece of cake. Thanks for your thoughs.
thanks chesh, exactly what i needed to know
