Question about multiMAN
Question about multiMAN –
Can someone tell me what is the difference between Direct Boot and BD-Mirror?
I'll try my best.

Downside is that not a whole lot of games are compatible with Direct Boot.
BD-Mirror, acts as a Blue Ray disc being mounted from the usb thus tricking the ps3 into thinking that its actually loading "normally" from usb. BD-Mirror is used to mount black screen specific games and is what separates Multiman from some of the older Backup Managers. It allows better compatibility.
Hope I'm not wrong with either description, if I am I'm sure someone will come through and correct me.
Just to add, very few games run from Direct Boot, so don't waste too much time on it.
