Hmm... One last question (I promise) before taking the plunge... Say I go ahead and do this, if for whatever reason, I dislike it or decide 'this isn't worth getting PSN banned or bricked, can I revert from a CFW back to OFW?
Yep, put the OFW on a thumbdrive and reinstall it via recovery mode. You'll be back on OFW
Well, guess I'll give it a shot then. Chesh, I greatly appreciate the assistance If I happen to have more questions or if something goes wrong, should I just post back in here or, contact you directly?
Hahah, as I can't be everywhere at once, probably both
arent elfs and self files the executable file formats?does it (the .self )point to eboot.bin?or are they both .exe files?
i was wondering about modded eboot.bin files also, why would a 3.55 game that i backed up with jb and modded the eboot to work on 3.41 not work, when i go from jb to a cfw?i thought modding the eboot was just to make it work with on a lower fw ,in other words a modded eboot makes you need to have fw x.xx or lower ,but i do remember people posting that they needed unmodded eboots because their games werent working
,so does this mean i have to get all the original eboots for all the 3.55 games that i modded the eboot to make work on 3.41? if i want to go from jb to cfw and use thoes jb backups?
and for the 3.55 modded eboot games that have installed game data ,would i need to delete the game data and reinstall it after i replace the mod eboot with the original?
what about games with edited .sfo files, will they still work?or do i need to edit them back to original state?
also i thought there was a size limit for the internal hdd (not physical size i mean gb/tb limit)i seen alot of posts but there is always debate over weather 1.5 or 2 tb drives will work internal (with an adapter/ext power supply obviously) or not
so this fw works on all models even ones with 256k nand?
cause on the first post for the wainikoko fw it still says that it will brick some ps3's but doesnt really go into specifics,but i heard that they had narrowed it down to only 256k nand consoles will brick with wainikoko ,so did they fix that issue alltogether with waininkoko cfw?
and this latest cfw with the .pkg file that needs to be run at every boot ,does it have brick issues with 256k nand or any other models?
Alright Chesh, I got it loaded, multiman's is up and running. Now I'm lost. I have Demon's Soul on my PC. How do I get it onto the PS3 via FTP, and where exactly do I put it?
you dont have to use ftp if you dont want to or dont know how you can split the files with psarc then put them on an external drive and copy them over with comgenie and i think multiman too,i dont have multiman so im 100%sure but i think you can use it to copy them to hdd0/games,and it should rejoin them automatically gaia should auto rejoin them too
if demon souls doesnt have any 1 file over 4gig just put bles **** or blus**** folder in a folder called GAMEZ on the root of your usb drive
Well, if you're going internal backup method, the best thing to do is backup a game in Multiman and see where it saves it (you don't need to backup the whole game, just enough to see the location). Once you know the location, you can turn on the FTP server in MultiMan or download Blackb0x FTP server and FTP into your console and dump your game into the same location. Ex: /dev_hdd0/GAMES or /dev_hdd0/games/LUAN12345/GAMEZ, etc.
Say I want to use the FTP method of transfering the game to the PS3. How would I do that, using multiman and the tools it comes with.
And where on the PS3 do I put it.
Edit: I think the FTP server is on by default in multiman. I can't find login information though, and I'll give that a try.
Double edit: Trying to run blackbox once the pkg has been installed gives me that 80something# error... When I run the l2 pkg, I get a black screen.
Ya need to install Blackb0x signed for 3.55. As for login info for multiman, I believe it's just anonymous (or blank) for username and nothing for password. Port 21 and the IP of your PS3 (of course). If I'm wrong about those settings, the info should be in the first couple of posts in the MultiMan thread (Dean painstakeningly posted a 4 post tutorial with all the necessary info about his program).
Like I said previously, it's best to start a backup of a game in MultiMan to see where it saves on the internal HDD. Write down that path and then FTP your games into the same GAMES/GAMEZ folder.
