Thrown back to XMB after starting game
Thrown back to XMB after starting game –
It's a feature. I just installed an early version of Open BM and when starting a game in it, it says something like 'do you want to start games directly instead of going back to XMB. Some games don't like that'. It's working correctly, with a faulty laser!
Today my Key arrived. I have an old 40Gb fat with a faulty laser, so the upgrade from 1.3 was much needed. I've tried both 2.3 and 3.3 versions, but after starting a game I've been thrown back to the startscreen of the PS3. Strangely I sometimes can play a game directly from the XMB. Not all the time, but sometimes. I have tried Open Manager 1.16, Pretty Manager r4 and Backup Manager v2, all with the same result.
Is it the faulty laser?

I'm pretty sure you need a fully working BD drive (including laser) to load games.
I've been trying for a while now and I can see changes:
* I've downgraded from 2.3 to 2.1 firmware
* with 2.1 I can start Open BM, start a game and be thrown back to the startscreen. I now can allways start my game directly from the XMB
So it is working, but I need to start games from the menu, as that is much simpeler. I remember seeing an option to play games directly through the XMB. That question is not being asked anymore. Anyone knows how to do that?
Oh, I see.
Directboot from backup managers has very limited compatibility right now, if you want most games to work you'll have to launch them from the XMB.
hi there. Iīm highjacking this thread as i have the exact same problem and canīt seem to fix it.
i received my ps3key yesterday, worked perfectly with original firmware to jailbrake my ps3 and install the package file (open manager 1.16).
I was able to rip from BD little big planet but canīt seem to play it either from the internal or external harddrives. I always get trown back to the startscreen. (iīm inside open manager and simply click X to play)
Today I updated my ps3key to 2.3 but got the exact same result (yesterday tried 2.1 but got the same think)
next try i think will be backup manager 2.0...
Any help as to why its doing this would be apreciated. I donīt understand how is it a feature...
after clicking X in manager you are taken back to xmb,then making sure you have a disc in just click on disc icon!
because after being thrown back, you can play the game!

Maybe. Only tested 4 random games. Not needed on them.
