A few random Questions about BC / PS1 /PS2 and CFW/backup managers... –
Alright so I've been reading for the past 3 days about cfw's and what not and I will be installing CFW kmeaw + OFW 3.55 + Managers ready to install pack from the guide here on psx. Is this my best option? That post was posted in January. I've read through the 60+ pages and feel pretty good about. Seems to be the right one although redbug sounds good too.
Next up, I see there are several cfw and I have read up on a few. I just want my ps3 to play backup ps2 games from hard drive as well as PS1 games FROM the hard drive. Or If I must I can burn em to a disk, that's fine too. Really don't care about ps3 games at all. I have the original 60gig BC model currently with 3.41. I plan on going to 3.55 unless there something I'm missing making 3.41 better. For now those are the 2 primary reasons for doing this. So which backup manager + cfw would best fit those needs? Please don't tell me cobra usb, I know about cobra but I'm looking for something free.
Thanks in advance!

HI, I am a proud owner of 2 60gb phat BCs
As far as i know (someone will correct me if im wrong) but backup of PS2 games is only available on CobraUSB as of right now. Standard original PS2 game disks should work fine, but copied or downloaded games will not work until we crack the Cobra USB properly, or you buy one
Kmeaw is fine, although if you want a really nice CFW, wait for JFW-DH. It's going to be an amazing firmware, and should release at the end of the month. Search the front page for some information on it.
PS. Props to you for actually reading something before posting !
Edit: IF your gonna use an old pack, make sure you find the updated versions of the managers on the forums.
Don't Feed the Trolls.
Awesome, thanks for the info! Going to read up on JFW-DH now. And I thought one of the managers allowed at least ps2 loading. That's a bummer.
Yeah, the guy behind MultiMan experimented with PS2 backup loading but I'm pretty sure he gave up because of really low compatibility and quality. We'll get something eventually but I doubt it will be soon.
Eh, your right I see the older version had it and it was later removed. Been searching for the past few hours now looking for any and all info. I hear swamp magic is an option but not what I'm looking for. I want to know how the hell the cobra guys did it, and no one else has. Guess it's back to my modded ps2 until JFW-DH. Thanks daman for pointing me in the right direction! Something to look forward too.
