just a quick question.. I just installed kmeaw CFW on my unit and I tried to install the latest version of multiman.. but during the installation I got an error saying installation was unsuccessful and my unit rebooted into recovery mode saying there was an error on the system.. luckily there was an option of trying to restart the unit and it booted again an entered the xmb.. but my question is, what could be the cause of the error upon installation? could the multiman installation harm my ps3 unit?
Nothing more to add, what i thought has been said.

Why do we always attract the numbskulls?
Anyway, on topic: Thank you to Dean for all his continued hard work, I am completely in love with the new 1.17 release of MultiMAN. It's simply GORGEOUS and the new settings menus are fantastic =) Keep up the good work, mate! <3

yep that should be a pretty hard one for the Co-Administrator :sarcasm:

That is highly abnormal behaviour, as a console should only go into the real recovery mode when you use the special startup method intended for that purpose. It should never happen on an auto-reboot from normal operation...

Are you sure you followed the instructions precisely ? : First installing the official firmware 3.55 and then restarting the console into recovery mode to install the kmeaw custom firmware. Any deviation from that, such as trying to install kmeaw directly, without first installing the official firmware 3.55, is doomed to failure...
I don't think so, and I have installed many different multiMAN versions under kmeaw CFW 3.55, which I've used for quite some time now.

You can't even make a mistake about which of the multiMAN PKG files you install (the WT version or the other) since that doesn't matter to the kmeaw CFW. Unlike the others it can use either of the multiMAN packages, since it accepts both signed and unsigned packages. Personally I prefer using signed PKG files for everything, when available. So I routinely install the WT packages of multiMAN, even though I could use the unsigned packages too.
The only mistake you can make is to just use an 'update' package when updating 'past' several releases at once. That will often fail because the 'update' package expects you to already have a newer version than what you did have. So I recommend that you always use a proper 'BASE' or 'FULL' package instead. And I live by that rule myself, which may explain why I never had any multiMAN install problems, ever...
And if you haven't already used it, you will need to download and install a BDEMU*.PKG file too, since this provides the drive redirection 'payload' needed for backup games. If you previously used a dongle, then that unit provided the payload, but while kmeaw CFW provides some of the dongle functionality, it does not include the payload needed for game disc redirection, and for legal reasons Dean does not want to have it as an integral part of multiMAN. That is why it must be installed as a separate package, in order to make the game launching from HDD work properly.
But in your case you first need to resolve whatever problem prevented proper multiMAN installation. And given that weird recovery mode entry you had, I fear you may have to reinstall firmwares again. First OFW 3.55, then CFW 3.55 kmeaw. And since you already use a firmware with version 3.55, both those installs will have to be made in full recovery mode.

Nope... I'm not in any way connected to whoever owns that page.

Been wondering about your username for a while.
So the name everyone calls me is "Ronald", with my full name being "Ulf Ronald Andersson".
(Unlike some users here I don't bother with anonymity. )
But enough about me. Let's stick to multiMAN topics in this thread.

If you look at the new style that Microsoft uses generate GUI's like here:

You can see how the MSN logo fades in from left to right, after he clicks on "Login". I think if the options in the sub-menu would build up like that, it would fit very good in this new "grown-up", dark-ish style multiMAN now has, since it's simple and not overloaded in any way.
Would be very cool if the multiMAN GUI would build up like that, maybe you can take a look into it, because this direct pop-up kinda thing destroys the whole picture / style imo.
Keep up the great work !
EDIT: Or if you look here at 0:20, where he starts up MSN, you can see how the login screen gets generated:
