what must i do now.
so i have just bought a used ps3 with rogero 4.31 on it. but i have some diffilculty to know what i must do now. i mean i can not really find any toturial how to get started. also im afraid i might brick it, cus i dont know if there are any brickprotetction installed on it like there are bootmi/boot2 on the wii? also i should mention that the disc drive is broken. but i dont think that the logic board is dead, as the previus owner could play games from external usb. but i can see that there is installed multiman version 4.13 on it.
is this the latest version? if not how do i update to the newest version? there are also installed gaia manager,rogero manager.blackbox ftp v1.2,toggle QA, and a snes emulator, but when i try to enter these i get a error saying that there are occured a error,
and then the following numbers are shown (80010017). but are any of the apps usefull or can i just delete them? i have formated my external usb to fat32, which i have read that you must to play games. but im also confused as where to put the files, i mean
should i just the apps and games on the root of the usb, or should i make certain folders to put them in? last thing i want to know is if i can play ps1,ps2,psp games on my ps3, without the cobra usb dongle and swap magic?
First, you shouldn't worry about bricking your PS3. Unless you are improperly installing new firmware, or messing around with dev_flash the risk of a brick is nil.
Any program you are getting 80010017 from probably means they are old. Uninstall them and install the latest version. This can be done by putting the new package on the root of your FAT32 formatted USB drive, and going to 'Install Package Files' in the 'Game' column.
Once you have the latest version of Multiman installed and running, you can use it to rip your games from disc. Multiman will automatically put the backup into the proper folder (/GAMES).
PS2 and PSP games can be played without the Cobra dongle or Swap Magic. You have to convert the ISOs to 'PS2 Classic' or 'PS Mini' format first. http://psx-scene.com/forums/content/...adds-gui-3252/ . Just read the front page articles.
first off, i wouldn't worry about bricking it. Just as long as you don't turn it off while updating or something. second, if i was you, id update to rogero 4.40 to get on the latest CFW.
Also, that PS3 has way to many backup managers, id delete all of them except multiman. Obviously you have internet, so load up multiman and update it to 4.30.0
Now seeing as the blu ray drive is broken, your not gona have 100% compatibility with PS3, but with multiman, has an option to load diskless,
for ps1 games, Just create a folder on the harddrive called psxiso and place iso files in there with images. The image must have the exact same name as the iso and saved as in png format
FOR PS2--PM me and ill help. same thing with PSP games
good luck dude, again if you need help, just PM me so we don't cramp up the forums
lol, we basically gave him the same reply
ok so i have upated multiman to 4.30. but when i open it i get this message. warning your installation of multiman is incomplete please intstall Base or full version. what does that mean?
When you install Multiman, you need to have either the newest base or full version installed first, then any update packages need to be applied over this. The update packages are not the full application so that's why its not working properly, they're just patches for the base/full version.
ok so i have installed multiman version 4.30 on my ps3. i have also managed to run a ps1 game(ff7) on it. i just notice that the game look very pixelated, are their any way to fix that?
I would recommend upgrading your PS3 to Rebug 4.30.2 by following the guide below:
1- Make NOR/NAND dump (optional):
Install latest version of multiMAN (4.30.00), plug in a FAT32 formatted USB flash drive into the right USB port, launch multiMAN under Games and go to mmOS > Press [O] on any file > Open in HEX viewer > Press [SELECT] > Press [START] > Export GameOS LV2: Select No > Export HV LV1: Select No > Export FLASH: Select Yes
2- Install Rebug 4.30.2 from XMB:
Download Rebug 4.30.2 from Rebug's website, verify the md5 hash, rename the PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP, put it on your FAT32 formatted flash drive in PS3\UPDATE, go to System Update and Update via Storage Media. Make sure there's NO original game disk in the drive and that you DON'T Update via Internet or else you would risk installing OFW higher than 3.55!
3- Install Rebug Update Package 0.1:
Download Rebug_Update_Package_0.1_4.30.x.pkg from Rebug's website, verify the md5 hash, install it from Package Manager, launch it under Games and follow the on screen prompts, the screen will freeze for a while when you press Yes, do NOT force shut down your PS3 at this stage or else you will get a nice and shiny RSOD! Just be patient and wait for it to finish what it's doing, it will reboot if needed when finished. Once the PS3 has rebooted, you can delete Rebug Update Package from your XMB as it is not needed anymore.
4- Enable QA and spoof to 4.40:
Install Rebug Toolbox from Package Manager, launch it under Games, go to Utilities and enable QA. This is to ensure easier and safer downgrading. Now go to Selector and change System Mode to Rebug, this will spoof to 4.40 to prevent accidental updates and allow PSN access. You can also change XMB Operation Mode to Retail and Debug Menu Type to CEX QA to ensure you have the Retail menus instead of the Debug menus which you probably won't need.
Regarding apps, you only need multiMAN which has everything you need, so delete gaia manager, rogero manager, blackbox and toggle QA because you don't need them. snes emulator is s super Nintendo emulator, so if you're interested in this you have to install a newer version and if you're not, delete it.
I believe there may be some filtering options available if you press the PS button, but it's not going to help much. PS1 games run somewhere around 320x240, so they are going to look like poop no matter what you do.
