reinstalled orignial bm and also original hex and working much better
To the people that are blaming BM2 as being the issue i assure it is not. From what i found it was the HEX file i was using. I tried different BM2 version and patch from various places and some where the ones that boot from BM and do not return to the XMB to be launched fromm app_home/PS3_GAME i got nothing but a black screen. I the flashed a few Maximus HEX files and although they worked and i got the hermes payload the games did not boot.
I tried everything deleting BM2, installing it again, transferring my games back from my PC used the various HEX files and BM combinations and transfers and i did not get a game to boot once. Might have tried 5 different HEX files and 3 versions of BM2 + deleting and coping game from pc to ps3 each time and even trying the external HDD and not nothing.
I then deleted BM2 from my PS3 and any backups that where on it and found this new maximus HEX file that has LED working. Flashed it tried THIS VERY BM version here transfered InFamous and Wipeout HD Fury from my PC to the PS3. Went it BM2 clicked InFamous went back to the XMB clicked app_home/PS3 Game and BEHOLD IT LOADED and so did Wipeout and YES even from my external HDD after a fresh copy.
So i suggest people transfer the games back to there PC if they have deleted it, delete BM2 and if you have a maximus avr use the this HEX file i uploaded which has working LED.
People are just blaming BM2 without trying everything and are to lazy to re-rip the game or FTP it from there PC. YOU GUYS HAVE NO RIGHT TO COMPLAIN IF YOU DO NOT TRY EVERY OUT COME + ITS FREE NO REASON TO COMPLAIN. ALSO IF YOU HAVE A PS3 THAT HAS A WORKING DRIVE WHY ARE YOU COMPLAINING AT ALL IF YOU ARE LAZY AND DON'T LIKE IT GO BACK TO THE FIRST HEX FILES AND BM. FOR ME IT WAS THE HEX I WAS USING AND NOW I'M GOOD, WILL TEST MORE ERROR GAMES AND SEE IF IT WORKS.
There's definately something wrong with the new payload, I flashed back to1.1 and both BM and BM2 are working.
Only difference is in BM2 you still need a disc in the drive to load your backup and does not prompt you if you don't have the disc in. (which basically doesn't load your backup in XMB) I tried a few hex files one was from Evil and the chief one.
So sticking to the previous hex with BM2, (just because I like the icon in XMB)
Hi everyone I have been using chief's hex since the start and all my games perfectly.
Here are all the games I have tryed and work perfectly without any disc.
Assassins Creed 2
Ghostbusters The Video Game
Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions
Wipeout + Fury
Red Dead Redemption
These need a disc in the tray for some reason.
Batman Arkham Asylum
Grand Theft Auto 4 Episodes From Liberty City
All games have either been install to my internal drive or external drive.
IN the end if a game gives mew a black screen all I have to do is put in a ps3 game in the drive and boot it again and it will work.
I used the hex in your link and it the leds appear to work. It took me a few programs to get it working correctly. I think there is a bug in the flip program as it took me a few erases to get the thing programmed correctly.

tried everything on ps3slim cech2104A on internalHD 500gb WD caviarblue
So do we have a proper list of games that do work with this hermes hex and BM2?
Will it have better games compatibility than the original hex with BM1?
why don't you search there is already a thread about it
I installed this and then found out I had to flash my USB device which I do not have. I use the HTC Touch Pro hack to get the games working. Now after I installed this I removed it and went back the "original" backup manager and now all my games goto load and just reboot to the XMB with no luck at all. Does this set some sort of option that could have caused this? All the sudden I can BACKUP the games but noone of them will work now. Anyone else experiencing this?
